Days go by pretty quickly when the auto industry throws so many new model launches our way! Here are the features, reviews and videos that generated the most buzz from April 9-15…

First, we started the week with a winter review of the 2017 Chevrolet Volt. How does this EV fare in the snow and the cold? You’ll find the answer right here!

Soon enough, we turned our attention to the 2017 New York Auto Show, because we didn’t want to miss any of the exciting premieres. Many of you took pleasure in reading about the new Subaru Ascent concept, which offers a great sneak peek of the 7-passenger midsize SUV the Japanese brand plans to sell in North America beginning in 2018.

Also, the Hyundai Kona set the web on fire when news broke out that the Korean automaker was preparing to jump on the small-SUV bandwagon. The Kona will be smaller than the Tucson, but likely just as attractive and dynamic. We’ll see it later in 2017.

Among the many new European cars unveiled in New York, the 2018 Audi TT RS and RS3 stood out as 400-horsepower pocket rockets. Do you prefer the coupe or the sedan?

Lastly, scores of readers enjoyed the latest video starring the new Honda Civic Type R. It’s worth another look, don’t you think?
