AutoGuideNow May 12

Another week means another fleet of vehicles to test. This week we have more than a few unique cars to try out – check them out here and send us your questions and comments.

2015 nissan micra2015 Nissan Micra – Mike Schlee, Road Test Editor: 

“This week I am off to Montreal, Canada to drive the least expensive car in North America; the Nissan Micra. Beginning at a price below $10,000 the five-door hatchback is between a city car and a subcompact size wise, much like the Mitsubishi Mirage. Based on the Versa Note’s platform, will this car be any better than the universally panned Mitsubishi?”

2015-Volvo-V60-T5-Drive-E-FWD-31_rdax_646x3962015 Volvo V60 T6 R-Design:

“I’m behind the wheel of the all-new 2015 Volvo V60 T6 AWD R-Design. While we wait for the new Drive-E engines to be added to the V60′s all-wheel drivetrain, this wagon makes due with the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine making 325 hp to back up the wagon’s sporty looks.”

2015-volkswagen-golf-gti2015 Volkswagen Golf/GTI, Luke Vandezande, Managing Editor: 

“It’s a crazy week for me. I’m taking VW’s family of seventh generation Golf models out for test loops on Monday in San Francisco.” Luke is hoping to also get a chance to drive the exciting GTI, so be sure to ask him about the full Golf range.


range-rover2014 Range Rover Supercharged:

“Then I’m heading back to the AutoGuide.com office where I’ll spend the week driving a supercharged Range Rover. You might remember reading that Land Rover cut roughly 700 lbs from the curb weight of the new Range Rover. I doubt that makes it ‘fuel efficient,’ but such a dramatic drop will definitely make a difference.”
