With the vast majority of Americans shivering through below-freezing temperatures this week, you may find yourself indoors with some extra time on your hands. Why not catch up on all the latest news from the automotive world at Cars.com and daydream about carving up, say, the Southern California coastline in that convertible you’ve been thinking of buying? Well, cozy up with your computer, ’cause we’re here for you like a Snuggie over footie pajamas, a hot mug o’ Swiss Miss and the “Fireplace for Your Home: Birchwood Edition” on Netflix.

And though you may be fantasizing about a droptop, if you’re an American in the market for a vehicle right now, you’re more likely interested in SUVs. To that end, a full 50 percent of our 10 most popular new stories this week are about trucklike family haulers. Among these, our head-to-head comparison of the 2020 Hyundai Palisade and 2020 Kia Telluride was the clear favorite — checking in at No. 2, just behind our announcement that the Chrysler Pacifica had won Cars.com’s 2019 Family Car of the Year award. The comparo, which Cars.com reviewer Aaron Bragman did straight from the exhibit floor of the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, pitted the all-new platform-sharing SUVs from the South Korean sister brands against one another to determine the main differences between them.

The Palisade/Telluride face-off managed to fend off a formidable contender in the perennially popular 2019 Toyota RAV4. In reviewer Jennifer Geiger’s RAV4 story, which lands at No. 3, she combs through all the compact SUV’s trim levels to help shoppers parse out which of their must-have features they can get at which price point across all six available trim levels — so you don’t have to. Other SUV-centric content on this week’s roster features the 2020 Cadillac XT6 at No. 4, the Chicago Auto Show-bound 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition at No. 7, and the 2020 Honda Passport at No. 10.
