AutoGuide Now For the Week of February 24

AutoGuide Now For the Week of February 24

This week on AutoGuide Now, we’re driving SUVs, crossovers and taking a close look at a sexy Italian supercar. See what we’re up to and chime in on Twitter or in the comments section below.

Here’s what we’re driving right now:


2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid: Road Test Editor Mike Schlee is extra busy this week: “This week I am behind the wheel of the Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid. Being Subaru’s first attempt I am interested in how this system will operate, even if it just a mild-hybrid setup. I am a fan of the regular XV Crosstrek so I have high hopes for this crossover.”

“We will be continuing our Second Opinion series this week as I put my wife behind the wheel of the Nissan Versa Note SL. A fan of spacious little cars and cargo space, this car ticks off many of the boxes she is looking for in our next family car. But is it too small? Does it not have enough power? Only time will tell.”

2015 Chevrolet Suburban in Champagne side view from New York rev2015 GM SUVs:

“Finally, I will also be traveling to California to get behind the wheel of a quartet of GM’s new full-size SUVs. The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe, 2015 Chevrolet Suburban, 2015 GMC Yukon Denali and 2015 GMC Yukon XL will all be in attendance.” With at least three cars to talk about this week, you can bet that Mike will be tweeting his thoughts and impressions. You can reach him easily on Twitter.

2014-honda-cr-v2014 Honda CR-V:

Managing Editor Luke Vandezande: “Honda’s CR-V sold over 303,000 units last year to be the top in its segment. It handles well, is easy on gas and isn’t difficult to afford. But it doesn’t take long for cars in this segment to go stale and it’s been two years since this one arrived. I’m really curious to see how it stacks up against Nissan’s new Rogue.” Luke will be sharing his thoughts of the Honda crossover through Twitter. Are you considering buying a Honda CR-V? Tweet Luke to find out more information about the always popular CR-V.


2015 Lamborghini Huracán:

Editor-in-Chief Colum Wood: “My first ride this week is not car, rather it’s a Boeing 777 en route to Bologna, Italy. From there it’s off to Sant’Agata Bolognese, the headquarters of Lamborghini where I’ll be getting a deep-dive into the upcoming Huracán ahead of its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show the following week. Chances are, all the details will be under embargo until a later date. You can still tweet at me for details, but I’ll only be able to send back Instagram photos of my dinner.” Got any questions about the Lamborghini Huracán, just ask below or tweet Colum here.

2014-nissan-rogue2014 Nissan Rogue:

Features Editor Sami Haj-Assaad: “I’m taking a look at the newest entry in the compact crossover segment, the 2014 Nissan Rogue, which offers an improved interior, three-rows of seating and better fuel efficiency. For context, Luke and I will be swapping crossovers, to see if the new Nissan can keep up with the tried and tested Honda CR-V.” Which crossover will reign supreme? Tweet your guess about which crossover will emerge the winner right to Sami.

2015 GMC Yukon XL SLT

2015 GM SUVs:

News Editor Stephen Elmer: “After sampling all three of GM’s new EcoTec3 engine lineup in both the Silverado and Sierra, I’m curious to see how the powertrains will perform in the SUVs. In the trucks, these motors have proven to be fairly fuel efficient, but will the same hold true for the SUVs?” Tweet at Steve to get the latest update on how rugged, tough and fuel-efficient these new SUVs are.

That’s what we’ll  have this week, so if you have any questions or comments be sure to comment below or tweet at us on Twitter.
