AutoGuide Now for the Week of May 26

We hope you’re enjoying the Memorial Day long weekend, but for those dreaming of cars, we’ve got you covered. Here’s what we’re testing this week.

“This week I’m travelling to Lafayette, Indiana, not only to see the all-new 2015 Subaru Legacy being built, but to also drive it. Roomier and more efficient, the new Legacy features better style inside and out. Will it be a competitor in the mid-size market? I intend to find out.” Follow Mike on Twitter to get his ideas of the 2015 Subaru Legacy.

“When not in Lafayette this week, I’ll be driving a 2014 Jeep Wrangler. But unlike some of the higher-end, fancier Wranglers on the market, this is the base, enthusiast model that foregoes all the electronic features and options in favor of supplying a raw, Jeep experience.”

 2014-Chevrolet-Corvette-Stingray2015 Chevrolet Corvette StingrayDavid Pratte, ‘Stig’:

“I’m living the dream. Later this week I’ll be distracting other drivers while shooting a street review of this stunning Velocity Yellow C7 Corvette but first I’ll be at the AutoGuide Test Track. Looking to lay down a seriously fast lap time check back soon for an extensive track test video. I’ve spent years driving and racing Vettes, so how does the newest model stack up?” Dave’s been recording lap times at the AutoGuide Test track for the past few years. Where do you think the new Corvette will end up?

2014-Cadillac-XTS 2014 Cadillac XTS VsportLuke Vandezande, Managing Editor: 

“Last week I drove the CTS Vsport with Cadillac’s new twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6. This week, I’m continuing my time with that engine, but in the front-wheel drive based XTS Vsport. Having already driven it briefly in Ann Arbor last year, I’m looking forward to spending quality time in Cadillac’s muscular highway cruiser.” Love your highway luxury cruisers? Follow Luke on Twitter to get the whole scoop on the XTS Vsport.


 2014 Mazda3i TouringSami Haj-Assaad, Features Editor:

“A commenter recently pointed out that we don’t perform many tests with many test drives with manual equipped economy cars. This week I’m looking to reverse that trend with a manual equipped, mid-trim Mazda3i Touring. While its affordable, will it still meet our expectations with fewer equipment and a row-it-yourself transmission.” There’s a long road-trip on the agenda for Sami in this Mazda3, so follow him on Twitter to learn more.
