( http://www.TFLcar.com ) For 2012 Hyundai Azera is all new. This fill-sized sedan from Korea competes with cars like the Toyota Avalon, Ford Taurus, Chrysler 300 and perhaps even the Lexus ES 350. For a base price that starts around 30K, the 2012 Hyundai Azera offers a lot of value for the money. The Azera can be had with a massive sunroof, it comes standard with plenty of leg room in both the front and back and seats that are all day road trip comfy. However unlike some of its rivals the Azera is front wheel-drive and not the fastest and certainly not the sportiest car in the segment. Check out this first drive review as we put the new and Sonota like Azera to the test.
2012 Cadillac CTS-V Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Cadillac CTS-V sedan is an American
modern classic that competes with the best cars from Europe like the BMW
M5, the Benz E63 AMG, and the Audi S6. The magic that makes the Cadillac
such a potent competitor is the power train which comes right out of the
Corvette ZR1. With a supercharged 556 HP V8 means the CTS-V will go from
0-60 MPH in just about 4 seconds.
2012 BMW 335i Review: The Ultimate Father's Day Machine
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Is the all new 2012 BMW 335i The Ultimate
Father's Day Machine? We think so. In this special Father's Day review we
take a look at the newest manual 6 speed version of BMW's best selling
model to determine if this might not be the Ultimate Father's Day Gift for
dad. To find out we invited a new car reviewer (Ezra) to share his insights
into the 2012 BMW 335i.
Happy Father's Day!
2012 Chrysler 200 Convertible Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Chrysler 200 Convertible is no sports
car. In other words....it doesn't handle like a topless Mustang or Camaro or even Mini Cooper, but
that's not why you are buying this car. This is most certainly a cruising
machine. And if you keep it on a straight road and tune in The Coffee Shop,
or perhaps the Chill channel on the satellite radio...you certainly enjoy
And when they shoehorned Chrysler's 283 horsepower V-6 Pentastar
under the hood....you end up with a car that's not only stylish but also
fast. In fact...not only is the car fast but the retractable top will stow
in 27 seconds (if you opt for the soft top) or 30 seconds (if you opt for
the hardtop) according to Chrysler. And that's right you can get this car
with either a soft top or for about $2000.00 dollars more a retractable
hardtop. So now just try to name a true four passenger convertible (in any
prices range) that can be had with either a soft or hard retractable top.
By the way: You can also get the Chrysler 200 Convertible with a four
cylinder engine paired to a six speed automatic transmission. But I
wouldn't recommend it as 174 horsepower is just not
enough to motivate a car that weighs over two tons...at least not with any
sort of hustle and pep.
Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vs Chevy Cruze Eco Challenge Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the most fun hybrid or eco car to drive?
It certainly isn't the Toyota Prius, but it could very well be the 2011
Hyundai Sonata Hybrid or the 2011 Chevy Cruze Eco with the manual
transmission. Both cars get 40 or more MPG on the highway and both cars are
fun to drive...at least as fun as high mileage cars can be. So which one is
the better car. Check out this first drive review.
2014 Chevy Impala First Drive Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2014 Chevy Impala represents a modern
version the classic big American Sedan. Of course the big difference being
that unlike Chevrolet Impalas of the 1950's and 1960's the new 2014 Chevy
Impala is front-wheel-drive instead of RWD. In this TFLcar first drive
review we spend some quality time with the big GM ride getting to know the
new Impala in San Diego, California. With a 3.6L engine that puts out 305
HP, the new Impala is certainly not underpowered, but is it better than the
old car which GM mainly sold to rent-a-car fleet and commercial
customers....you'll have to watch this first drive review to find out.

http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline With the new ILX in the line-up, the TSX
is no longer positioned as the gateway into the Acura brand. Introduced in
2009, the second generation is starting to look a bit long in the tooth
next to fresh rivals offering more power, technology, and more compelling
looks. Despite looking outclassed on paper, the 2013 TSX still offers the
traditional Acura strengths such as strong value, sporty dynamics, a
refined powertrain, and the promise of strong reliability. Just be sure the
latest gadgets and most power aren't high priorities on your list.
Road Test: 2012 Hyundai Azera
MotorWeek road test review of the 2012 Hyundai Azera. Hyundai is clearly
not satisfied with being a major player in just the small and mid-size car
and crossover ranks. They've also had success luxury segments with cars
like Genesis and Equus. But, one area where success has eluded them is in
the large family sedan. They've tried with the XG300 in 2001 and Azera
starting in 2006. Still, sales were disappointing. But, Hyundai never says
never, and for 2012 the Azera is all-new. So let's see if this time their
efforts pay off big.
Reviewed 2013 Hyundai Azera
When the original Azera first debuted it heralded the beginning of Hyundai
as we know it today, great value for money, good style, high levels of
content and more. As Hyundai looks to take the next step does the Azera
also take the next step to compete with cars like the Buick Lacrosse, Lexus
ES, Toyota Avalon and more? Lets find out on Rumblestrip.NET and Ten

2013 Hyundai Azera Test Drive & Full Size Sedan Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/azera/2013/ The 2013 Hyundai Azera is a
car that gets lost in a sea of full sized entry-level luxury sedans. Last
year this vehicle received a total redesign and the result was one of the
best all-around cars in this segment. The Azera gets less press than the
smaller Sonata and the rear wheel drive Genesis Sedan, but this sedan has a
lot of great things going for it including: tons of interior room, a
powerful V-6 engine, top safety ratings, advanced technology, and sleek
looks. The 2013 Hyundai Azera is only available in one trim with a base
price of $32,250.
Hyundai is currently in the business of building stylish, shapely sedans.
The Azrea takes the polarizing look of the Sonata and adds some maturity by
toning down the exterior styling cues. The result is a nice large sedan
that the more sophisticated crowd will enjoy. Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture
design is still evident just not as dramatic. Up front the headlights are
elegant and stylish with their integrated LED's. Out back the dual chrome
Exhaust tips have some added design of
The 2013 Hyundai Azera is powered by a GDi 3.3 liter V-6 engine that makes
293 horsepower and
255 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 20 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the
highway. The only transmission option is a 6-speed automatic. The whole
powerplant is responsive and powerful delivering smooth acceleration.
As good as the new Azera looks on the outside, it is even better on the
inside. Hyundai has done an excellent job at making the interior of the
Azera a premium space. The surfaces are wrapped in upscale materials; the
front seats are 12-way adjustable and heated. The center stack is packed
with technology housing a large navigation screen and well laid out radio
and heating controls. Rounding off the interior positives is the large
For all the features and amenities you get; this car is at the top of the
class. The 2013 Hyundai Azera looks nicer and better put together than the
competition. For the price, features, looks, style, and engine; you are
getting tons of car. The Hyundai Azera is a true winner in its class. The
car will put up a great fight against vehicles in the luxury class.

is responsible for the brilliant interior design featured on the XTS. The

overall shape of the XTS is crisp and tailored and the character lines down

pieces with 20-inch wheels offered on the Platinum Edition.
