Mercedes CLA45 AMG, BMW M6 Gran Coupe, Smart Electric Drive: Top Videos Of The Week

Want a CLS63 AMG four-door coupe but don't have the cash? Not to worry, because Mercedes-Benz is prepping the new 2014 CLA45 AMG, and it's every bit the baby brother to the AMG CLS we'd hoped it would be. It's also the subject of our most popular videos this week.
The rest of the best find us driving the 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe, which splits the difference between the M6 coupe and M5 four-door sedan, with great looks, lots of power, and four doors. Then, we sample the 2013 Smart Electric, which might be the best model you can buy from the quirky brand. Next up, it's the Toyota Highlander, newly refined for 2014 and previewed at the New York Auto Show. Finally, we take a look at the 2013 Honda Accord, and wonder why it has two touchscreens.
