Scion's first real sports car, the 2013 FR-S, is a collaboration between Subaru and Toyota. This unlikely partnership combines the strengths of both automakers, including a boxer engine and a rear-wheel-drive setup. The FR-S is a remarkable handler, but acceleration is lacking, according to Cars.com Editor Joe Bruzek.
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.
2014 Subaru Forester
In terms of power, fuel economy, comfort and practicality, the completely
redesigned 2014 Subaru Forester can compete with the best in its class.
Where the compact SUV plays its trump card, says Cars.com reviewer and
two-time Subaru owner David Thomas, is offering standard all-wheel drive at
a starting price less than $24,000 for the 170-horsepower four-cylinder
version. If you like those numbers, avoid test driving — or falling in
love with — the 250-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter XT model. While it is a
blast to drive, Thomas says, it'll also set you back an extra $5,000.
2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe gets some significant powertrain upgrades on
its four- and six-cylinder engines, but it's on the four-cylinder that the
mechanical changes make the most difference, according to Cars.com Editor
Joe Bruzek. The added power -- along with the suspension improvements --
make the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T a compelling option against the
likes of the new Scion FR-S and Subaru BR-Z, Bruzek says.
2014 GMC Sierra 1500
The Sierra is a four-wheel-drive SLE double-cab Z71 truck with the stronger
pulling 3.42:1 gears and base 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V-6 rated at 285 hp and 305
pounds-feet of torque. Base pricing for the well-equipped SLE 4x4 is
$37,065. Our test unit had the SLE Convenience Package (power pedals, park
assist and sliding rear window) for an extra $665 and the SLE Extra Value
Package ($1,620) that offers power seats, remote start, dual-zone climate
control and a trailering equipment setup. The SLE also included an 8-inch
screen for navigation and IntelliLink ($795), and the Z71 Off Road
Suspension Package ($775), which includes aluminum wheels, high-capacity
air cleaner, monotube shocks, extra skid plating and hill descent control.
Finally, the truck had a trailer brake controller ($230) and all-terrain
tires ($200), for a total of $41,595, which includes destination of $995.
2013 Scion FR-S Track Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/scion/fr-s/2013/ Autobytel recently had the
opportunity to test the all-new 2013 Scion FR-S at the Spring Mountain
Raceway outside of Las Vegas Nevada. Thanks to a 200 HP boxer engine
sporting Toyota's D4-S direct and port injection system sending 151 lb-ft
of torque to the rear wheels through a Torsen limited slip differential
helped the sport compact Scion FR-S more than met our expectations.

2013 Chevrolet Grand Sport Corvette Technology Review & Drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) There is no doubt that the 2013 Chevrolet Grand
Sport Corvette Convertible will put a huge smile on your face when you mash
down the accelerator pedal. The 430 horsepower sports car is one
of the fastest (if not ) the fastest and best handling American made sports
cars that you can buy today. But there's a lot of interesting technology
that makes the Chevy Corvette such a razor sharp racetrack tool and yet at
the same time a car that you can drive everyday. Check out this first drive
review video as we put the latest 2013 Chevrolet Grand Sport Corvette
Convertible to the technology test.
