Welcome to The Week In Reverse, our roundup of the week's automotive-news headlines. Here, we'll be looking at some of the big stories, the major product announcements, the special features, and the underlying themes and news of the week—all presented not necessarily in reverse, but looking at the week with the knowledge of a few extra days gone by.

Without further ado, here's The Week in Reverse, for Saturday, May 24:

It's been quite the week for product announcements. Among the big ones: Hyundai priced its fully redesigned 2015 Sonata; Lincoln detailed pricing and options for the 2015 Navigator; and we saw some noteworthy changes detailed for the Chevrolet Impala, Fiat 500, and Kia Optima lineups.

We also drove the all-new 2015 Subaru Legacy, and wondered if Honda and Toyota are worried yet. And checked in with the Honda Civic as it goes 'gearless' with a CVT and rehabs its in-dash infotainment.
