“This week I’ll be driving the Porsche Macan S. During the evaluation period, I’ll be taking the Macan on a weekend road trip with four adults aboard. How will Porsche’s newest, smaller crossover handle these duties?” Check in with Mike on Twitter to see how the Porsche handles his road trip.

“There’s a super-sedan throw down happening at the track this week, with the new (and INSANE) Jaguar XFR-S taking on the sleek Audi RS7. With a 560-hp, twin-turbo V8 lurking under the hood, there’s no way the RS7 will be a slouch on the track. Will quattro beat out the cat? Be sure to follow along on Twitter to find out!”

2015-volkswagen-golf 2015 Volkswagen Golf – 

“Then turn the excitement down a notch to check out how the latest entries in the world of hatchbacks fare. The new VW Golf has always been known as a standout in this segment, but the Mazda3 (our former Car of the Year) may have this shootout in the bag. Which would you pick?” Tweet your thoughts of these two hatchbacks to Sami.

Back when I first saw the Jaguar XFR-S debut in LA, I remember thinking to myself “God, I hope I get to drive this one.” Wouldn’t you know it, that day is finally here. But what fun would that be without a little not-so-friendly competition? In this case, we’re pitting it against the Audi RS7.”

2014-mazda3 2015 Mazda3 –

“Then later in the week we’ll be putting one of the world’s favorites – the Volkswagen Golf – up against one of our own: the Mazda3. Which affordable compact car will come out on top? We’ll find out later in the week.”
