Land Rover Defender, automakers help fight COVID-19 and more: Roadshow's week in review

The news cycle continues to be dominated by the global COVID-19 pandemic, and as we've reported this week, the automotive industry is doing its fair share to help out in multiple ways. Despite many major plant shutdowns, manufacturers and their lenders are offering financial assistance or relief. Some automakers are even procuring or producing personal protective equipment for medical professionals or partnering with other companies to replenish the desperately needed supply of ventilators.

It wasn't all coronavirus news, however. Our editors got their hands on some superhot vehicles like the 2020 Land Rover Defender and the Audi S6

Here's a recap of our most important stories from March 22 to 28.

2020 Land Rover Defender

2020 Audi S6

Managing Editor Steven Ewing doesn't find much fault with Audi's new S6 sedan. It's hotter than an A6, but not as sharp or powerful as the RS6 Avant, and that puts it in sort of a sweet spot in the lineup. This is a car we could totally drive everyday.
