2013 Honda Accord Sedan Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/honda/accord/2013/ The mid-sized sedan segment is by far the most competitive segment in the entire automotive industry. Practically every manufacturer has a vehicle targeting this segment. For years the Accord was at the top of the heap winning award after award, year after year. But the Accord quickly got stale and with the new Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima, and Toyota Camry redesigns; the Accord was losing ground quickly. Now we have a new measuring stick with the all new redesigned 2013 Honda Accord Sedan. The Accord is one of the safest bets in America today. The base price is $21,680; the car drives great, has a nice resale value, and offers wonderful reliability.
Most enthusiasts and automotive journalist would cringe at the thought of having to test drive yet another family sedan. But the reality is that this is still the most popular segment of car in America today. The Camry and Accord combined sell almost a million cars per year. Honda has basically set the standard with the Accord for over 30 years. This nameplate has been around since the 1970's and is now in its 9th generation and the Accord keeps on getting better. What's unusual about the new 2013 Honda Accord is that it has actually gotten shorter while interior room has increased and the cargo room is larger, which is a great testament to Honda Engineers.
Styling is dramatically improved with the nice shoulder lines and shorter overhangs. Basically the car looks more modern and up to date. But it is not just about styling with the new Accord Sedan. Under the hood is a brand new engine and CVT transmission. Not to be outdone by Mazda's SkyActiv engine technology, Honda has released their own line called Earth Dreams Technology. The new engine is very efficient and powerful. The motor is a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder that makes 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft. of torque. The CVT transmission helps the Accord to get fuel economy ratings of 27 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway. The Accord comes in several trim levels that include the: Base LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and the top of the line Touring model. If you want to get a 4-cylinder engine, that comes standard on the 3 lower trims. When you move up to the more expensive trims the V-6 engine becomes optional/standard.
Shoppers of mid-sized sedans are looking for rear legroom space. Thankfully the Accord has plenty of it including a lot of rear headroom too. The Accord's interior has been completely redesigned. You have an all new instrument panel, center stack, and gauges. Everything works really well. The speedometer looks like a high-tech Swiss watch, the steering wheel is nice and compact, and the controls are great. Another bonus is the fact that every 2013 Honda Accord comes with and 8-inch infotainment screen standard as well as a rear backup camera. The Accord also comes with Honda's new lane-watch safety system.

2014 Mazda6 Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mazda/mazda6/2014/?id=32972 The 2014 Mazda6
combines a technological advanced SKYACTIV engine, refined exterior, and
exciting driving characteristics into one great all around package. This
3rd generation Mazda6 builds on the success of its predecessors while still
maintaining an affordable base price at $20,880. If you have to buy a new
sedan then might as well go for one that looks great!
The mid-sized sedan segment is not very exciting even though it is quite
competitive. Most vehicles in this category all have the same styling and
can get lost in a sea of the mundane. But the 2014 Mazda6 could be the
exception. Mazda is a passionate car company looking to make fun
The exterior of the Mazda6 has been completely redesigned. Gone is the
smiley grille replaced by a much more vertical and pronounced piece. This
great new look can be seen on other Mazda vehicles, most notably the CX-5.
While most manufacturers are moving to the cab forward design, Mazda has
instead gone for a cab rearward look by stretching the sheet metal. The
lines on the side seem to keep flowing. This car is not just about form;
the new model also uses a lot more high strength steel. Mazda has made a
conscious effort to convert the Mazda6 from a regular mid-sized car into a
premium car. From the back the simple design looks very upscale, almost
like a Lexus ES.
On the inside Mazda has done a lot to compliment the outside. The gauges
and instrument panel have all been updated. The 2014 Mazda6 is available in
3 trim levels: Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring. The higher the trim level
the more standard features you get.
You probably have heard about SKYACTIV technology on many of the new Mazda
vehicles. This powerplant has now made its way onto the 2014 Mazda6 making
the car more fuel efficient. The engine is a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder 184 horsepower and 185
lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is excellent at 26 MPG in the city and 38
MPG on the highway.
The 2014 Mazda6 can satisfy a whole range of automotive shoppers; from
those who just need a commuter car to the enthusiast looking for a fun

http://www.autobytel.com/honda/accord/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Honda Accord
focuses on efficient packaging. That is something the new Accord does
really well. This 2013 model gets smaller on the outside and bigger on the
inside. There is more interior space for occupant comfort as well as better
visibility all around. The 2013 Honda Accord has a base price of $21, 680.
On the outside, the Accord received all new styling. The exterior is more
aggressive, luxurious, and bolder. Up front the Accord is equipped with LED
daytime running lights and tail lights with the top trim (Touring) getting
full LED headlights. These features are typically associated with luxury
cars but they are available here on a main stream sedan. On the inside you
will notice a lot or rich and premium materials. The trim is nicely crafted
and the materials are soft to the touch.
Powertrain wise, the 2013 Honda Accord has a diverse portfolio of
powertrain options tat include a: 4-cylinder engine, V-6 engine, 6-speed
automatic, 6-speed manual, and a CVT. The 2.4 liter engine makes 185 horsepower and 181
lb-ft. of torque while managing 27 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the
highway with the CVT. The larger 3.5 liter V-6 engine makes 278 horsepower and 252 lb-ft. of
torque while getting 21 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway.
The 2013 Honda Accord is also offered as a coupe which speaks to
enthusiasts and style oriented car buyers. The car is a real performer when
equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission and V-6 engine.
The sneak peak on the all new electric plugin-hybrid gives us a first look
as this exciting new model. This car is differentiated from the regular
Accord via a unique front and rear facia as well as unique wheels. This
Accord Hybrid will have the ability to run on electricity alone for 10-15
miles. The mileage is expected to be 100 MPGe.

2013 Toyota RAV4 Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/rav4/?id=32972 The Toyota RAV4 first hit
the shores here in the U.S. back in 1996. This little crossover SUV along
with the Honda CR-V is responsible for starting the crossover craze. Today
there are almost 50 different crossover models for sale here in America.
The 4th generation RAV4 is an updated model that gets a complete interior
and exterior redesign as well as an updated powerplant. The 2013 Toyota
RAV4 comes in 3 trim levels: the LE, the XLE, and the top of the line
Limited. The base price on the LE trim is just under $25k
The RAV4 vs. CR-V battle reminds us of the old Ford vs. Chevy battles
during the muscle car era. Over the past few years the Honda CR-V has
really taken over the segment, gaining the most market share. But the
all-new 2013 Toyota RAV4 aims to get back on top of the crossover sales
charts. There are a ton of new features and lots of changes that make the
4th generation RAV4 the best ever.
The past generation Toyota RAV4 came with a choice of a 4-cylinder or V-6
engine. Well the larger V-6 has been dropped and now the only engine
offered is an efficient 2.5 liter 4-cylinder making 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft. of
torque. What that means is coupled with the standard 6-speed automatic
transmission and FWD; the 2013 Toyota RAV4 will return 31 MPG on the
highway. You can also opt for an AWD version as a $1400 option.
The 2013 Toyota RAV4 has been completely redesigned outside and in. It all
starts with a brand new front end consisting of a bold grille and
headlights that look similar to the new Camry. This generation RAV4 was
made more aerodynamic and the result is better fuel economy. If you are
buying a crossover chances are you may be driving around small children.
The new Toyota RAV4 comes with a segment leading 8 standard air bags.
Toyota engineers also worked the interior design to allow for the most
cargo volume in the segment.
The interior of the 2013 Toyota RAV4 is completely new with some great new
features including an Acoustic Windshield which helps reduce wind noise.
From the driver's perspective, the new instrumentation is pleasing while
being easy to use. After the 7 year run of the previous model, Toyota has
really stepped it up inside the cabin.
The 2013 Toyota RAV4 sits nicely on the road and you will like the way it
drives on the highway. This is an economy crossover SUV after all so you
shouldn't expect the RAV4 to ride like a luxury car. Bottom line is that
Toyota did a great job on the newly redesigned RAV4. They really hit the
mark on this one and it's a huge improvement over the outgoing model. The
2013 Toyota RAV4 certainly has all the features you need. In fact the RAV4
can now compete with the Honda CR-V at the top of the economy crossover SUV

2013 Lexus LS 460 F-Sport Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/lexus/ls-460/2013/?id=32972 For the past 2 decades
the full sized LS series sedan has always been the Kingpin of the Lexus
line-up. The new LS has come a long way since the first boxy models
appeared years ago. This new 2013 Lexus LS 460 F-Sport combines elegance,
luxury, style, sport, and aggression into one great package with a price of
The LS 460 comes with the spindle style grille that is unique to Lexus.
What sets the car apart is the F-Sport package. On the outside the F-Sport
adds upper and lower grille pieces to the front bumper, unique F-Sport
badging, and 19-inch BBS alloy wheels. Performance wise the F-Sport package
will get you larger Brembo brakes to increase the stopping power, a TORSEN
limited slip differential, and an Adaptive Variable Air Suspension which
can be controlled inside the car. Inside the F-Sport Package for the 2013
Lexus LS 460 adds bolstered front seats that have the F-Sport insignia set
in them, black leather interior surfaces trimmed in white, a special shift
knob, Alcantara headliner, paddle shifters, and cool aluminum trim pieces.
The 2013 Lexus LS 460 F-Sport is powered by a 4.6 liter V-8 engine that
makes 386 horsepower and 367 lb-ft. of
torque. The 8-speed automatic transmission features cool paddle shifters
mounted to the steering wheel. Fuel economy for this full size luxury car
is 16 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway. There is an AWD model but
both power and fuel economy drop.
On the inside the F-Sport touches are evident with the badging on the
steering wheel and seats. Speaking of seats these are some of the most
comfortable on the market which is what you should come to expect from
Lexus. The gauges on the dashboard are very attractive and the LS 460 comes
packed with technology, gadgets, and safety features. The overall layout of
the cabin is nice and spacious moving the Lexus brand forward and setting a
new measuring stick.

Honda has long been known as a serious kind of car company. Press events
are orderly, the Honda folks wear suits and their products are similarly
starched. While we have a new corporate nose up front with a chrome
"smiley" face and aggressive headlamps, the rest of the profile is buttoned
up and professional. The large (and low) greenhouse says "I have kids," an
image that Honda has been embracing with their latest commercials,
essentially admitting they are leaving descriptives like "sexy" and
"dramatic" to Hyundai and Ford. I have to admit I am quite torn, I love the
Fusion's sexy sheetmetal making it my first pick in terms of looks, but
oddly enough the "plain Jane" Accord is number two for me because it's
simple clean. The new Kia Optima is a very, very close third thanks its
nose job for 2014. I'm not convinced that the Camry's nose or the Sonata's
dramatic character lines will age well, let me know what you think in the
comment section. Something important to keep in mind is the Accord has
bucked the growth trend and has shrunk on the outside compared to the
previous generation making it among the smallest in this segment. Good if
you live in the city, bad if you were hoping for a Honda land yacht.
Honda's interiors have long been known for their simple functionality
rather than opulence or elegance and Honda is still singing the same tune.
Despite being an all-new model for 2013, Honda hasn't radically changed the
interior design, opting instead for incremental improvements and more
standard features. All Accords now get standard dual-zone automatic climate
control, Bluetooth phone integration, a backup cam and active noise
cancellation. Honda seems to have listened to the complaints from reviewers
and customers and took a methodical and dedicated approach to making the
Accord quieter on the road. In addition to the fancy noise cancelling
software, there's more foam, more carpet and a one-piece dash designed to
prevent squeaks later in life.
Honda's seat engineers seem to be designing seats specifically for my back
lately. The Accord and the refreshed Civic both sport supportive seats that
coddled by back and backside on long journeys. There is a caution I must
toss in however, the lumbar support in Sport, EX and LX models is fixed and
pronounced. If you need some adjustibility in your back support, you'll
need to step up to a leather model to get it. 2013 has brought a raft of
materials improvements to the Accord cabin from improved seat fabrics to
more squishy dash bits and the ever-so-popular stitched pleather.
Thankfully Honda spares potential owners the shame of faux wood trim,
instead opting for a modern brown pattern that I found attractive. The trim
and the style are not as stylized or futuristic as eh competition, but
controls are easy to locate, and consistent in their high quality feel.
What piqued my interest at the launch even was Honda's new 2.4L
direct-injection four cylinder engine. The engine and the brand-new CVT
turned my impression of the Accord on its head. The engine's 185HP still
arrived at a very-Honda high RIM of 6,500, but thanks to the
direct-injection sauce torque jumps to a [nearly] HP matching 181 lb-ft
with a strong pull from idle and a peak at a decidedly un-Honda 3,900RPM.
If you choose the 6-speed manual, this means you no longer have to rev the
nuts off the engine to get the Accord in motion. Most shoppers however will
find a Continuously Variable Transmission under their Accord's hood,
although they may not even notice. Why? This is quite possibly the world's
