In our October issue, we highlight six of the latest automobile boasting trends with urbanites in mind—compact sizes, high-design accents, and electric-powered engines, among others. Here, we present five more models.
This year, a J.D. Power APEAL Study placed the 2013 Mazda CX-5 as the highest ranking vehicle in the Compact crossover utility vehicle segment. The car achieves an estimated 25 miles per gallon (MPG) in the city and 31 on the highway and seats five passengers.
Cadillac recently announced that a extended-range electric vehicle will arrive in showrooms in early 2014. The car features an on-board, gas-powered range-extending generator helping the car to achieve an estimated driving distance of 300 miles.
Diesel vehicles of today are much different than their exhaust-spewing bretheren of the past. Very fuel-efficient and clean-burning, diesel engines offer the flexibility and long range—very appealing in a green car.
