Each of the five most popular cars in the list this week have one thing in common. They are all Japanese.
AutoGuide.com’s new cars shopping section saw three-row crossovers, mid-size sedans, coupes and compact crossovers rise to the top this week. The Nissan Pathfinder is no longer a body-on-frame SUV, but a unibody crossover focused on family practicality. It uses a continuously-variable transmission mated to Nissan’s 3.5-liter V6.
But if you want all-wheel drive capability and a tall ride height without the Pathfinder’s size, compact crossovers might be the choice for you. The Honda CR-V and Subaru XV Crosstrek both power all four wheels while the Honda product can also come as a front-driver.
The Honda Civic Coupe was also a popularly searched product. For the 2014 model year, the car gets a new infotainment system that can port the screen of an iPhone 5 with select applications to harness the power of a smartphone for navigation and Internet radio. Honda also scrapped its automatic transmission for a CVT.
Finally, the Toyota Camry was heavily searched. A spacious mid-size sedan offered with four- and six-cylinder engines as well as a hybrid variant.
