This week on AutoGuide.com, the most popular car review was of the new 2014 Mazda6.
It is only available with a 2.5-liter gasoline 4-cylinder engine that makes 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque, though a diesel engine is slated for the new 6 in the future. Available for the first time on a Mazda is the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system that can detect if an accident is imminent and automatically apply the brakes at speeds below 19 mph.
Next up is our review of the 2013 Mini Paceman. Compared to the regular MINI hardtop, the Paceman is over a foot longer, 4-inches wider and 4-inches taller, and offers both a 121-hp 1.6L 4-cyliner and a 181 hp turbocharged version of that engine, as well as a 208 hp JCW model.
Coming in at third is the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover review. The Range Rover lost an average of 700 lbs. on every model compared to the last generation luxury SUV. It offers a 5.0L V8 that makes 375 hp, while the supercharged 5.0L will deliver 510 hp and a 0-60 time of just 5.1 seconds.
The Mercedes SLK55 AMG makes the fourth spot on the list. A 5.5L V8 engine delivers best-in-class power of 415 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque with a 4.5 second 0-60 time.
In the last spot on the list is the 2014 Acura RLX review. The brand’s new flagship offers lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, an autonomous braking system, and is powered by a new, smaller 3.5L V6 engine which gets an increase in power to make 310 hp.
