Showing the popularity of new green technology, the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Review gathered the most attention this past week here on AutoGuide.
A 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 141 hp and 122 lb-ft of torque is paired to a 124 kW electric motor generating 166 hp and 226 lb-ft of torque for a combined output of 196 hp in the Accord Hybrid.
Second on this week’s list is the 2014 Chevy Silverado High Country. This is Chevrolet’s first attempt to build a proper luxury pickup truck. Did they accomplish the goal, or fall short? Check out the review to find out.
Sure hybrids are popular, but nothing beats the thrill of a sports car, much like the 2014 Jaguar F-Type. The F-Type can be had with a V8, but we had the chance to sample a supercharged V6 version that makes 380 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque. At our test track the F-Type S clocked a 1:22.056 lap time with a max lateral g-force of 1.45 and a top speed of 107.7 mph.
Fourth on the list this week is a comparison of two compact crossovers, with a twist. We took the 2013 Toyota Rav4 and the 2014 Mazda CX-5 to the race track, to find out which of these small family haulers is a better performer. Check out the results for yourself.
Finally, the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage rounds out the list. A 1.2-liter 3-cylinder engine makes 74 hp and 74 lb-ft of torque, giving the Mirage a fuel economy rating of 37 MPG city and 44 MPG highway with the CVT, though we managed as high was 46 MPG.
