Cadillac’s first extended-range hybrid attracted the most attention this week on AutoGuide.com.
The Cadillac ELR uses the same powertrain as the Chevrolet Volt to achieve 82 MPGe total and 33 MPG while the gasoline engine is operating. Starting at $75,995 however, is this car really worth it? Read the review to find out.
Next up this week is the latest version of the original hot hatch, the 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI. Powered by a 2.0-liter TSI four-cylinder that makes 210 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, you can also get the sport package which bumps the hp up to 220. A six-speed manual is standard, but a dual-clutch transmission is available.
The cheapest car on the market slots in the third position this week. The 2015 Nissan Micra only costs $9,998, and it comes with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that makes 109 hp and 107 lb-ft. However, right now the Micra is only available in Canada. If it is a success, it may jump the border into the US market.
New toys from Toyota take the fourth position on the list. The TRD Pro Series package, available on the 4Runner, Tacoma and Tundra, adds a beefed up suspension, new looks and more armor to make sure that all three of these vehicles are ready to tackle the desert.
A big pickup truck finishes of the list this week, the 2015 GMC Sierra Denali HD. With new looks and a revised interior, this truck is quieter and more comfortable than ever. Check out the review to see how this truck handles a big load hitched up to the back.
