Not unexpectedly, a bright yellow version of Chevy’s latest track weapon, the Corvette Stingray, attracted the most attention on AutoGuide.com last week.
Powered by a 6.2-liter V8 that makes 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, the Corvette managed to lap the AutoGuide test track faster than a Porsche 911 4S and just a few tenths of a second slower than an Audi R8. Check out the review for great footage of the car on the track.
Volvo’s latest station wagon effort takes the second spot on the list this week. The 2015 V60 uses a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 that pumps out 325 hp and 354 lb-ft, sent through a six-speed automatic to all four wheels.
Lincoln’s latest, the MKC, makes the third spot. Essentially a rebadged Ford Escape, can the MKC help Lincoln reestablish itself as a legitmate luxury choice? Check out the review for our thoughts on the new small crossover.
More American luxury makes the list this week from Cadillac. A new plug-in hybrid called the ELR is Cadillac’s version of the Chevy Volt, and it delivers 217 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque from its small 1.4-liter engine and electric motor.
The cheapest car in North America wraps up the list this week. The 2015 Nissan Micra is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that makes 109 hp and 107 lb-ft. The car is only available in Canada, and will sell for $9,998.
