Most Read Car Reviews of the Week: December 16-22

Visitors to AutoGuide read the 2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0-liter Ecoboost review the most this past week. 

The new three-cylinder Ecoboost engine uses direct-injection and a turbocharger to deliver 123 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque for the small city car. Along with new looks,  Ford promises that the Fiesta will be the most fuel efficient non-hybrid on sale in America.

Next on the list is the new 2013 Toyota RAV4 review. The new RAV4 relies exclusively on a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder making 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque, getting 24/31 mpg for FWD models and 22/29 mpg for AWD.

The third most read review is of the new 2014 Lexus IS, though still in prototype form. The new IS is expected to debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, but AutoGuide got an early look at the new Japanese luxury car.

In fourth is the brand new Chevy Trax. For North America, the Trax will only be available in Canada and Mexico, with its U.S. counterpart being the Buick Encore. Under the hood of the Trax is a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the Chevy Sonic, which puts out 138-hp and 148 lbs-ft of torque.

And last on the list is the 2013 Acura TL review. With a 280 hp 3.5L V6 in the standard car, SH-AWD models gain a larger 3.7 engine with 305 hp while fuel economy is just 18/26 mpg (city/highway) for the SH-AWD model or 17/25 for the six-speed manual equipped model.
