Car shopping this weekend? We know some of you are, at least. You've been reading some of the most comprehensive new-car reviews on the Web, here at The Car Connection. And you're picking favorites.
From our super-secret look into the data (high five, Google), the most researched vehicle this week on TCC is once again, the latest Honda CR-V. It's no surprise, as the crossover battles it out with the Ford Escape and Toyota RAV4 for its sales lead on a regular basis. Both those challengers are represented here too, as are other perennial favorites like the Chevy Cruze, Hyundai Elantra, and Ford Fusion.
The recent arrival? That would be the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA, a car that's been so popular for so long, we're planning on spending a month with it later this year. Let us know what you'd like to see us test while it's in our hands by tweeting us @CarConnection--and as always, stay in touch via Facebook and through our YouTube channel, too.
These are the ten most researched new vehicles on TCC this week:
