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.
2012 Cadillac CTS versus Infiniti M56x All-Wheel-Drive Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Cadillac CTS Sport wagon and the
Infiniti M56 both come with all-wheel-drive. The Cadillac's Borg Warner
system "uses sophisticated controls and algorithms to augment vehicle
handling and traction by optimally using grip at both the front and rear
wheels," according to Cadillac. It can shift up to 100% of available torque
to the front axle if needed.
The 2012 Infiniti's M56x All-Wheel-Drive system is designed "specifically
for a front engine/rear-wheel drive biased setup. 0 to 50 percent of the
power can be sent to the front wheels for better control. The active brake
limited slip differential can shift power side to side. The system uses an
advanced torque split control strategy that automatically redistributes
torque to the wheels (0:100 up to 50:50 front to rear) according to road
and driving conditions." according to Infiniti.
So which is better up Lick Skillet Road (America's steepest country road)
when it's muddy, wet and slick? Watch the video to find out in this
All-wheel-drive mashup review.

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.
Euro-Clash: Mercedes E550 Sport vs. BMW 550i Sport vs. Jaguar XF Premium
2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Sport vs. 2009 BMW 550i Sport vs. 2010 Jaguar XF
Premium @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Building an ideal executive-style luxury sedan is not an easy task for a
carmaker. If the car turns out too soft and isolated, you lose enthusiasts
who aren't quite ready to retire in a Lexus. Too complex or high-strung and
you risk alienating your technology-challenged, soft-in-the-middle buyers
who expect a measure of mindless comfort. Get the balance just right, and
your five-passenger $60,000 midsize sedan will both impress with remarkable
dynamics and indulge with palpable comfort.
We've gathered three such vehicles for this comparison: the 2009 BMW 550i,
2010 Jaguar XF Premium and 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Sport.
The 2009 BMW 550i is widely regarded as the benchmark among sporting luxury
sedans with its imposing modern design, 360-horsepower 4.8-liter V8 and
legendary sporting dynamics. For a car that's been around for five years,
its reputation remains consistently impressive.
All-new in '09, the Jaguar XF now is available in a midlevel model, and
this Jaguar XF Premium includes not only a new 385-hp direct-injection
5.0-liter V8 but also more standard features. Riding a 1st-place finish
from the last time we collected four similar cars in 2008, the Brit car
should be taken seriously.
The new-generation 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Sport stands a very good chance
of improving on its previous 3rd-place finish. Sure, the 382-hp 5.5-liter
V8 is a carryover item from the outgoing E-Class, yet Mercedes-Benz has
spent a considerable sum to refine this ninth-generation E-Class into a car
meant to define this segment of sedans.
2012 Infiniti M37 S HD Video Review
http://drivencarreviews.com/ Infiniti could have copied BMW or Mercedes
like so many have before, but they've clearly taken their own road with the
M37 S. It delivers the stuff needed to play in this market, the only thing
missing are enlightened buyers. Tom Voelk follows a BMW 7 Series in
downtown traffic without touching the brake pedal to see how well Distance
Control Assist works.
2014 Mazda6 vs Infiniti M35 Hybrid Technology Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2014 Mazda6 and the Infiniti M35
Performance Hybrid do not compete for the same buyers. So why mash them up
in a technology mashup review. Because the two Japanese sedans take
completely different and distinct means to achieve the same goal. Both of
these cars get about 30 MPG in combined fuel economy and both strive to be
sporty performance sedans. The Mazda6 using Skyactive technology has taken
the traditional combustion engine to the next level of development while
the Infiniti M sedan uses a hybrid petroleum and electric drivetrain to
achieve the same goal. So which one of these two cars is the better
performance sedan. You'll have to watch this video to find out.
