2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 Luxury Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mercedes-benz/glk-class/2013/?id=32972 The Mercedes GLK350 is a very functional compact luxury crossover that has been refreshed for the 2013 model year. This segment has grown to be very popular that the Mercedes GLK350 has competition from Audi, BMW, Infiniti, and Lexus. With a starting price of $35,880 the GLK is a very affordable option. The 2013 Mercedes GLK-Class can seat up to 5 adults.
On the outside the chiseled look has been softened a bit and the new features make the GLK350 look more luxurious. Everything about the front-end is new including a better grille, chrome trim around the lower bumper, new headlights, and trick LED daytime running lights. Out back the lines are softer and the taillights are full LED units. The Exhaust tips are oval chrome units that tie the whole package together.
On the inside the ergonomics of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 have been significantly improved. The shifter has been moved to the column in an effort to make more room on the center console. The Navigation system and touch screen are one of the best in the business and therefore remain unchanged. New for this model is the addition of a Stop/Start system that shuts the engine off while sitting idle. This system is good for improving fuel economy by a few MPG. Overall Mercedes did a wonderful job on the interior refresh.
The 2013 Mercedes GLK350 is powered by a Direct Injection 3.5 liter V-6 engine that makes 302 horsepower and 273 lb-ft. of torque. That's over 30 more horsepower than last year's model. The 7-speed automatic transmission should help the GLK350 net much better fuel economy numbers than last year's model. Soon Mercedes will be releasing a Diesel version of the GLK-Class called the GLK250 BlueTec that should be a bit hit.
All in all the 2013 Mercedes GLK350 is at the top of the list concerning luxury crossover SUVs. The price is very reasonable, the interior is well sorted, and the new exterior refresh looks great.

2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/veloster/2013/?id=32972 When the Hyundai
Veloster was released in 2011 many enthusiasts were excited to see a
fantastic looking and affordable sport compact car that would give the
other hot hatchbacks in the segment a run for their money. The let down
came when the hood was opened to reveal a 138 horsepower 1.6 liter
naturally aspirated engine that was more suited for fuel efficiency rather
that for performance. Well now you can have your cake with the release of
the 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo! The
base price on the turbo model is
The 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo is
powered by a twin-scroll turbocharged
1.6 liter 4-cylinder engine based on the standard Veloster Gamma GDi
engine. The turbo motor has a lower
compression ratio at 9.5:1 to handle the added Boost pressure. The gasoline direct injection
(GDi) motor also sports Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT).
Power output for the turbo engine is 201
horsepower and 195
lb-ft. of torque which puts the Veloster turbo right in the middle of the sport compact car
pack. The standard transmission is a 6-speed manual but there is also is
6-speed automatic version with paddle shifters. The manual is the more fuel
efficient transmission at 26 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway.
On the outside the Hyundai Veloster turbo model is distinguishes itself from the
regular model in a few ways. For started, the Veloster turbo has a huge wide-mouth front grille opening
to let in vast amounts of cool air. There is also a lower lip spoiler on
the turbo model. Another cool feature
found on the turbo-only model are the
LED lights front and back. The front projector headlights sport LED daytime
running light accents which are normally reserved for high end luxury
vehicles. The wheels on the Hyundai Veloster turbo are 18-inch alloy units that combine both a
matte and chrome finish. The limited edition matte gray pain job will set
you back an additional $800, but the finished result is well worth it. The
standard non-turbo Veloster features
squared Exhaust tips while the turbo model has rounded ones.
The 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo can be
considered one of the hottest new hatchbacks on the market. Not only does
the Veloster turbo have over 200 horsepower, but this car
can get up to 38 MPG on the highway. The 2013 Veloster turbo looks great and comes packed with tons of

2013 Lexus GS 450h Test Drive & Luxury Hybrid Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/lexus/gs-450h/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Lexus GS
450h is a totally redesigned luxury hybrid. This mid-size luxury sedan
represents the 4th generation GS model and the 2nd generation GS hybrid
model. Many improvements have been made but the most noticeable is the
spindle grille which is a common design feature found on other Lexus
vehicles including the ES 300h and the RX 450h. Blue Lexus logos indicate
that this luxury car has a hybrid power plant underneath the hood. The 201
3 Lexus GS 450h has a base price of $58,950.
The hybrid power plant in the Lexus GS 450h is not just about good fuel
economy, it is also about power. The engine is a direct injection
Atkinson-cycle 3.5 liter V-6 that produces 286 horsepower on its own. When
coupled with the electric motor though the total power output is 338 horsepower. This
allows the GS 450h to accelerate from 0-60 MPH in only 5.6 seconds which is
actually faster than the F SPORT
model. Fuel economy is excellent at 29 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the
Only Lexus hybrid models get the benefit of Bamboo accent trim and the
interior of the GS 450h looks incredible with its new Bamboo steering
wheel, Bamboo dash, and Bamboo center console. Supply leather is used on
many surfaces and the seats are wonderful 18-way adjustable units. The
center stack has been completely redesigned and the result is a sleek more
compact package. The GS 450h has 4 modes including an ECO, Normal, Sport,
and Sport Plus. While in ECO mode the gauges show your fuel consumption
use, but switch to Sport+ and you can use the paddle shifters to get things
moving. The 12.3 inch split monitor controls many systems including
navigation, stereo, and climate. A couple of other technological features
are the: heads-up display, parking assist, backup camera, and the Mark
Levinson sound system.
The 2013 Lexus GS 450h gives other mid-size hybrids a run for their money.
This car is not only fast, fuel efficient, and luxurious; it is also very
exclusive with the Bamboo interior accents. For less than $60k you can get
over 30 combined MPG in a hybrid that can accelerate from 0-60 MPH faster than most cars on the road today.

features may be a bit overkill for a Luxury SUV. The towing capability of
the 2013 Lexus LX 570 is 7,000 lbs.
On the outside the new Lexus LX 570 gets the same design and styling
treatment as many other new Lexus vehicles. The front bumper and grille
look similar to the GS series. A set of huge 20-inch alloys are standard on
the LX 570. These chrome rims are a must for any luxury SUV. Another
feature that is common to high-end luxury vehicles are the LED daytime
running lights and the LX 570 has a great looking set. There are other
chrome accent pieces located throughout the rest of the exterior.
On the inside of the 2013 Lexus LX 570, the passengers are bathed in both
luxury and technology. In the luxury department, this full sized SUV sports
fine leather and wood trim. The steering wheel has tons of integrated
controls. The gauges are quite sexy with electroluminescent blue
backlighting. There is a Dual-screen DVD rear entertainment system that's
available as an option. The sound system is by Mark Levinson and comes with
19-speakers located throughout the cabin. Lexus offers something called a
cool box which is essentially a fridge located in the armrest. Talk about
luxury! The 2013 Lexus LX 570 is equipped with everything else you would
expect from a high end luxury SUV including: Navigation, power fold rear
seating, climate control, Smart Stop technology, a Pre-Collision System,
The 2013 Lexus LX 570 is loaded to the hilt with safety, security, and
luxury amenities. Beyond that the LX 570 is a very capable off-road SUV.
There are very few choices out there if you are looking for an 8 passenger
Luxury SUV but the 2013 Lexus LX 570 has all the bases covered.
