The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu Review managed to capture the most attention this past week on AutoGuide.
The base motor is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder that makes 196 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque while an optional 2.0T makes 259 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Chevy quickly redesigned the Malibu after the 2013 model launched to less than stellar reviews, but is it enough to make the car competitive?
Second on the list is some insane power and performance from Lexus in the form of our Lexus LFA Review. The naturally aspirated powerplant displaces 4.8-liters and puts out 552 ponies with 354 lb-ft of torque. Along with our chance to review the Lexus LFA, our own Craig Cole got to ride along in Lexus’ IS-F CCS-R race car.
Third up is the Honda Accord Sport Review. The Accord Sport is powered by a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine with 189 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque. Non-sport models make do with 185 hp. Both a super slick six-speed manual transmission and a continuously variable automatic are available.
Fourth on the list is the latest luxury truck to hit the market, the Chevy Silverado High Country. The High Country uses saddle brown leather to create a nice interior, but it is enough to really fight with the established competition?
Last up is a comparison between the 2014 Acura MDX and the 2014 Infiniti QX60. This is a close matchup as both engines are 3.5-liter V6s powering all four wheels and rear trunk space is an identical 15.8 cubic feet. Both can carry seven passengers with rear seat occupants enjoying a full entertainment set-up. Which one is better? Read the comparison to find out.
