Performance cars were predominantly popular in the AutoGuide.com new cars section this week.
Subaru’s lightweight BRZ piqued interest, as did the 2014 Corvette. Both offer outstanding value within their segments, proving that fast and expensive don’t always go hand-in-hand. Chevrolet’s V8-powered rear-wheel drive products were generally popular this week, with the Camaro and SS performance sedan both ranking in the top five. The SS is imported from Australia and recent news from Holden, the General Motors sub-brand responsible for building the cars, suggests that they might be doomed for a short life. GM will stop manufacturing vehicles in Australia in 2017, leaving a question mark over future plans for the SS.
But performance wasn’t the only popular topic this week. Hyundai’s compact Tucson crossover also managed to make it. The South Korean company refreshed its affordable crossover with mild styling tweaks, direct injection engines and more expensive suspension components in the base model.
