This week, the most researched vehicle were predominantly Asian imports. The Ford Edge crossover was the one exception.
The in-between crossover sits above an Escape and below and Explorer with three engines on tap. But Ford’s crossover is starting to seem old, and new products ruled the roost in the list this week. Infiniti’s new Q50 was popularly searched, as was the Honda Civic-based Acura ILX.
Like the Edge, Hyundai’s Santa Fe Sport sits somewhere between its three-row sibling and the smaller Tucson. With an available turbocharged four-cylinder, it doesn’t need to be slow.
But sometimes slow is OK. Just ask anyone with a NissanVersa. It was also a popular car this week, but not for its performance credentials. The Japanese sub-compact car delivers savings thrills. It’s cheap to buy, to re-fuel and does very little to elevate your pulse. Parking is a cinch because of its small size and available “around view” monitor that provides a bird’s eye view of the car.
