This week on Autoguide, the most rear popular car review was of the newly-refreshed 2013 Honda Civic.
Honda did what no one expected and redesigned the Civic just one year into its product cycle, responding to poor reviews of the car. The Civic’s powertrain remains unchanged with a 140 hp 1.8L and a best of 28 mpg city and 39 mpg highway.
Next on the list is the 2014 Lexus IS prototype. Set to be unveiled in just two weeks time at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, the new IS will continue to offer the IS250 and IS350 models, with the latter receiving an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Third is Nissan’s supercar killer, the GT-R. Power from the twin-turbo 3.8L V6 has been increased to 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque, while the 2013 GT-R is priced at $96,820, or $106,320 for the Black Edition, making it a great performance bargain.
Fourth on the list is Toyota’s RAV4, sporting a new nose and a four-cylinder engine as its only powertrain option. Fuel economy is rated at 24/31 mpg for FWD models and 22/29 mpg for AWD.
And finally, the fifth most read review on AutoGuide this week was the 2013 Honda Accord. A new direct-injection 4-cylinder makes 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque with a fuel economy rating of 27/36 mpg, while standard equipment includes dual-zone climate control, an Econ button, an 8-inch screen with Honda’s i-MID system and a back-up camera.
