By CASEY WILLIAMS
Every fall, the world’s automakers brush away the leaves long enough to debut their new rides. This year, we look at an affordable Tesla competitor from Chevrolet, a Honda pickup that’s gone mainstream, and an elegant Swede from China. Also check out Volkswagen’s answer to the iconic Subaru Outback, and finally, Alfa Romeo’s Italian accent on the sport sedan. Here’s your guide to the five cars you’ll want to drive:
One year after the concept’s debut in Detroit, Chevrolet beats Tesla to offering an affordable electric car with more than 238 miles all-electric range. The Bolt charges for 90 miles of driving in 30 minutes. Drivers will enjoy an electric car rush given 200 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque. Tech includes a rear camera mirror, remote starting, smartphone-managed charging, navigation, and cabin pre-conditioning (warm or cool before entering). And connect all your iThings via 4G LTE Wi-Fi.
