2013 Infiniti M Hybrid vs Lexus GS 450h 0-60 MPH Mashup Review

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Infiniti M35 Hybrid and Lexus GS 450h are both luxury hybrids that not only directly compete but also put a premium on luxury and performance. Not only do these two Japanese luxury sedans both have a 3.5L V6 engine and a electric hybrid powertrain, but they also are both also rear wheel drive and they both have over 300 combined horsepower. So the question is a simple one; which of these two premium hybrids is a better buy? To be honest we are actually just as curious to find out which one is faster from 0-60 MPH. Watch out this TFLcar Mashup review to find out.

2013 Mercedes-Benz GL350 vs Lexus GX460 Off-Road Mountain Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL350 Bluetec and the 2013 Lexus GX460 are both luxurious 7 seater family haulers that can certainly go off-road. However that where the similarities end. Under the hood of the Mercedes is a V-6 turbocharged diesel engine while under the hood of the Lexus is a more traditional gasoline powered V-8. Of course we wanted to know not just how well the brand new 2013 Mercedes GL compares to the Lexus when it comes to ride and handling but perhaps more importantly how the Mercedes compares of-road when the going very muddy. You see the Lexus is based on one of Toyota's most off road worthy vehicles...the Land Cruiser. So how did the big Merc do? Check out this off-road Mountain Mash-up Review to find out.





2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS First Drive Review & 0-60 MPH Test
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS is a small turbo-charged pocket rocket that's fun to drive. But is it faster than the Sonic turbo? That's a question that we answer in this first drive review as we drive, test and review the new RS version of the Sonic turbo in San Francisco. Of course we don't just drive the new Sonic RS, we also put it to the the TFLcar real world test 0-60 MPH test. So how fast is the new Sonic RS 0-60 MPH? Watch this video to find out.





2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport vs Mercedes-Benz E350 vs BMW 535i race track review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Lexus GS 350 F is taking direct aim at both the new Mercedes-Benz E350 and the new BMW 535i. We recently had a chance to drive all three cars on the race track in Las Vegas to compare how well the newest and perhaps sexiest Lexus does against these two very well regarded and long established German luxury performance sedans. Check out this first drive review of the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F as we test all three cars head to head.





2013 Infiniti G37 vs Audi S5 vs Volvo S60 0-60 MPH Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Infiniti G37x, the Audi S5 Quattro and the Volvo S60 T5 AWD all have just thing in common; they are all-wheel-drive cars. But perhaps more importantly these three car represent three very different ways to achieve power. The new Infiniti G37x is normally aspirated, while the Volvo S60 T5 is turbocharged and the Audi S5 Quattro is supercharged. So of course we were curious which of these three cars is faster to 60 MPH @ 1 mile above sea level. In the process of testing all three cars from 0-60 MPH we also wanted to find out just how much a driver can really influence a cars performance so Roman and Nathan decided to have a small contest to see who's faster. Is it Roman or Nathan or perhaps Andre the Russian mechanic. Find in another fun TFLcar Mashup Review.

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 highway. 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.

2014 Lexus GS 450h Hybrid Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF The GS used to be the only hybrid game in town, but times have changed and nearly everyone has joined the party. BMW has their turbocharged ActiveHybrid 5, Mercedes just launched the E400 Hybrid, Infiniti has re-badged their M Hybrid the Q70 Hybrid, Acura is finally selling the all-wheel-drive RLX Hybrid and Audi has announced the A6 hybrid will come to America "soon." This means that the S80 T6 and Genesis are no longer on my list because we have head-to-head competition now. Lexus used to be known for restrained styling but the current generation GS marked a change for the Japanese luxury brand. In addition to taking on more aggressive front end styling, the GS was the first Lexus to wear the new "spindle" grille. The schnozz that seemed so controversial three years ago seems downright demure today, especially since this form has been adapted to the enormous (and some say questionable) LX 470. Perhaps because the GS was the first to wear the corporate grille, the styling seems slightly awkward from the front 3/4 shot (seen at the top) but looks better in person. Unlike the IS, which gets some sheetmetal swooshes on the side, the GS's profile and rump are luxury car restrained. Overall I think the Infiniti Q70 hybrid, despite being a little long in the tooth, still wins the beauty contest. The Lexus and BMW are a bit too sedate for my tastes, and the RLX and A6 suffer from decidedly front-wheel-drive proportions when compared to the rest and the Mercedes lands smack in the middle. While the GS 350 recently got an update in the form of a new Aisin 8-speed automatic, the GS 450h continues with just a minor software update. This means under the hood you will find the same direct-injection 3.5L Atkinson-cycle V6 engine and RWD hybrid transmission that launched in 2011. Combined with a 1.9 kWh NiMH battery pack in the trunk the system is good for 338 combined horsepower, 286 of which come from the gasoline engine. This is essentially the same engine found in the Highlander and RX hybrids, but the transmission is more similar to what Lexus uses in the LS 600hL. The unit combines the two motor/generator units with a 2-speed planetary gearset to improve efficiency at high speeds (as in on the Autobahn) but without the AWD system standard in the LS 600hL. The 2014 software update improves "sportiness" in sport mode and now imitates an 8-speed automatic instead of a 6-speed. While 338 horsepower compares well with the 6-cylinder competition, the GS 450h has the unenviable task of trying to be both the most efficient GS and the performance version as well. For reasons nobody knows, the more efficient GS 300h which uses a 2.5L four-cylinder engine is not sold in America. By design, the Lexus hybrid system is very different from the competition. The two motor/generator units and the electrical circuitry combine with a single planetary gearsest to "act" as a continuously variable transmission. This setup allows the drivetrain to act as a serial hybrid (kind of), parallel hybrid, electric generator, or a pure EV at low speeds. In contrast Mercedes, BMW and Infiniti combine a traditional transmission with a single electric motor that replaces the torque converter. Transitions between electric and gasoline drive modes in these systems aren't as smooth as the Lexus system because of the clutch packs involved in reconnecting the engine. Meanwhile Acura combines a dual-clutch robotic manual transmission with a twin-motor pack in the rear for the only AWD hybrid luxury sedan in this category. Of course the primary reason for buying a hybrid is to save on gas. Right? Maybe. With a 29 MPG City, 34 MPG Highway and 31 MPG combined rating there's no doubt that the GS 450h is a fuel sipping 338 horsepower luxury sedan. However at more than $10,000 more expensive than a similarly equipped GS 350 it would take you more than 20 years to "save money." We did average an excellent 31.5 MPG over 800 miles with the GS hybrid, a notable improvement over the Infiniti hybrid and the short time I spent in the RLX hybrid. Although we haven't extensively tested the BMW and Mercedes hybrids yet, brief spins in both indicate they will slot in under the GS. There's one more problem for the GS: Mercedes' new E250 diesel. No, it's not a speed daemon, but at 34 mpg combined it not only makes up for the higher cost of diesel with the higher fuel economy, it starts around $9,000 less than a GS 450h as well.
