AutoGuide Now for the Week of July 7
Now that the excitement of July 4th is over, you must be wondering what’s next to come from AutoGuide.com. Here’s what we’re testing this week. Dont’ forget to tweet at us to find out more, or ask any questions about the cars we’re reviewing this week.
“For the next week and a half I’ll be taking part in the annual Rally North America charity road rally. This year’s event is the 2014 US 50 Rally. We will be starting in Martinsburg, WA on July 7th and finishing up in Pueblo, CO on July 11th. My vehicle of choice for this long distance road rally will be the supremely comfortable 2015 Hyundai Genesis Sedan.” Follow Mikes progress on Twitter and send him your well wishes while he goes and rallies for a cause.
“I had the unusual opportunity to spend last weekend driving a Lamborghini Aventador. This is hands-down the fastest, most expensive and most exotic car I’ve ever driven. Look out for the video review soon.”
“Jumping from one end of the spectrum of practicality to the other, I’ll be transitioning into a 2015 Subaru Outback. Like the Lamborghini, it also uses an all-wheel drive system. Unlike the Lamborghini, you can probably afford to buy one and drive it every day.”
“Finally I’m capping off my very busy week with a 2011 certified pre-owned Porsche Boxster Spyder. The special edition lightweight sports car isn’t currently being built, but people who leased them are starting to trade them in. They retail for around $60,000 now through Porsche, so I’ll be asking if this is one of the best second-chance car buying opportunities of the year.” Luke has a pretty busy week, but that won’t stop him from replying to your tweets.
“This week, I’ll be piloting the new Range Rover Sport. Fit with a massive 5.0-liter supercharged V8, this SUV is equal parts sports car, off-roader and comfy cruiser. But all that capability comes at a cost, which may make the Range Rover an irrelevant pick in a segment full of winners. So is the Sport worth the money? We’ll find out and let you know.” Have any questions for Steve? Follow him on Twitter and send him any questions you may have about this awesome SUV.
