The best value car for 2015 is the Toyota Camry Hybrid, Consumer Reports said Thursday.

"Smooth and capable—but not exciting," the $29,000 vehicle is "affordable for the roominess, comfort, and all-around functionality," the magazine said.

The vehicle gets 38 miles per gallon, which the report said "is impressive for a midsized sedan."

Consumer Reports' annual roundup of the best and worst cars considered road test scores, reliability surveys and estimated cost per mile over the first five years for 200 cars.

For the best value among small SUVs, Consumer Reports recommended the Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium, which costs 58 cents a mile to run, well under the 76 cents-a-mile average.

The top pick for sports cars or convertibles was the Mazda Mx-5 Miata.

The Jeep Wrangler topped the list for the worst value cars, which included the luxury Mercedes-Benz S550.
