2013 Chevrolet Spark
Consumers might shy away from Chevy's tiny Spark because of its compact dimensions (and awful pink color, in our case), but looks are deceiving, says Cars.com reviewer David Thomas. The Spark is roomier than it looks and its small four-cylinder engine is also peppier than expected. The Spark is at home in the city, but it's not very comfortable on the highway, where the ride really suffers, Thomas says.
2012 Hyundai Tucson
The Hyundai Tucson has been on sale for nearly three years, and in that time, a slew of new competitors have entered the compact crossover segment. While the Tucson is certainly stylish and nice to drive, its harsh ride and cramped interior left Cars.com Senior Editor Bill Jackson unimpressed.
86FEST Import Car Show Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyota AE-86 @ Fontana Auto Club Speedway
http://www.autobytel.com/scion/fr-s/2013/?id=32972 Autobytel's own FR-S fanatic T.J. Keon was recently invited out to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA for the first ever 86FEST, a gathering and celebration of all things Toyobaru and pays homage to the original AE-86 with everything from a car show to on track activities. We were fortunate enough to catch up with the man who loves little red Hachis more than anyone else, Antonio Alvendia, from Cipher Garage and MotorMavens.com and is responsible for 86FEST. Scion Racing driver Ken Gushi was also on hand to talk about drifting as well as daily driving an FR-S after signing a few autographs and smoking a few sets of tires. Finally we were able to catch up with Speedhunter Larry Chen where the Drift Photo aficionado shared a story of a very special Hachi Roku with only 48 original kilometers that had been kept in a basement for the past 25 years he found on a recent trip to Belgium.
