2013 Volkswagen Golf GTD Test Drive & Car Video Review

http:www.autobytel.com/volkswagen The Volkswagen GTD is one of the most fun and engaging cars you can drive. The diesel engine provides tons of torque while the DSG transmission is nearly perfect. This European only car is based on the GTI Hatchback except that instead of a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine, there is a TDI engine under the hood. The VW GTD combines the sportiness found in the GTI with the miserly fuel economy found in the Golf TDI. In Europe the Volkswagen GTD has a base price right under $40k and this little diesel hatchback could make its way to the U.S. as a 2014 MK7 model. Say you are in the market for an economical car but you want it to look sporty, get good gas mileage, and be fun to drive; but the Toyota Prius just won't do. The Volkswagen GTD might be right up your alley. This car is essentially a diesel version of the GTI. Unfortunately we do not get this car here in the U.S. But if enough people write to Volkswagen, there is a good chance this car might show up in 2014 as a MK7 model. Volkswagen has already made a big commitment to the U.S. market with diesels. There are a few different models with TDI engine options including the: Golf, Jetta, Passat, Beetle, and Touareg. Thanks to some minor intake, Exhaust, injector, and turbo modifications; the Volkswagen GTD makes 170 horsepower and 258 lb-ft. of torque. Just to put that into perspective: the GTI has 30 horsepower more but 51 lb-ft of torque less than the GTD. Although the GTI is a bit faster than the GTD, the latter is much more fuel efficient. Since the GTD is not sold in American, we are testing a German Spec car. So the speedometer is in km/h and the radio stations do not work. But there is something fun and exciting about driving a vehicle you cannot get here. Behind the wheel the GTD looks just like the GTI with the flat bottom steering wheel, interior features, and DSG transmission. The diesel engine provides tons of torque and the driving dynamics are excellent. This car provides a lot of fun even though it's a diesel.

2013 Land Rover Range Rover Test Drive & Luxury SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/land-rover/range-rover/2013/ The Range Rover was first launched way back in 1970 and now for the 2013 model year there is an all new and totally redesigned 4th generation SUV. The overall look has still remained throughout the years while also evolving with the times. And this new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover looks as amazing as ever. Land Rover states this vehicle has a couple of different design elements that include: Luxury, Sustainability, Relevant Functionality and Desirability. Underneath the all the luxury lives the soul of one of the most capable off-road vehicles ever produced for the mass car market. But with the high price tag many of these luxury SUVs will never step foot off the pavement. The base price on a new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover is $82,650 with the top of the line Supercharged Plus model with the Autobiography Package starting at $130,100. For over 40 years Land Rover has been producing the Range Rover and over that time this vehicle has become the ultimate luxury SUV. This new 4th generation Range Rover is bold, beautiful, and powerful. This high end vehicle drives so well you would be hard pressed to find anything wrong with it. The Range Rover offers a great powerplant, luxurious ride, and all the features and options you would expect from the leader in luxury SUVs. The 2013 Range Rover has been completely redesigned inside and out. For starters they really simplified the instrument panel. Now there are a lot fewer buttons and the infotainment system is much more intuitive. The typical driver will not be going off road for the most part, but it is nice to know they can. Those capabilities are at your fingertips when driving the 2013 Range Rover. Under the hood lives a 5.0 liter V-8 engine pushing 375 horsepower and 375 lb-ft. of torque through an 8-speed automatic. Step up to the Supercharged models and power jumps to 510 horsepower and 461 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 14 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway. Land Rover has also improved the stability and braking dynamics of this Range Rover. In fact everything about this luxury SUV is all new but the most exciting fact is that the weight has been reduced by 700 pounds. Because of this you will be getting better fuel economy and better performance. The Terrain Response System is an all new system for the Range Rover and has several modes of operation. You can choose between a Snow/Gravel setting, a Mud and Ruts setting, a Sand setting, and the most aggressive off-road setting is the Rock Crawl Mode. There is no question the 2013 Range Rover is one of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced SUVs on the market. There are 4 different trims levels when it comes to the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover. Choose from the Base model, the HSE model, the Supercharged model, and the Autobiography model. The latter model swaps out the seating for 5 and replaces the rear bench seat with 2 Captain's Chairs for maximum comfort. The Autobiography model is the most luxurious SUV you can buy. Land Rover has really done a great job with this model. The 2013 Range Rover is just a brilliant vehicle. If you can afford this luxury SUV do yourself a favor and go buy one.

2013 Kia Forte SX 5-Door Hatchback Test Drive & Compact Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/kia/forte/2013/ The Kia Forte has been around since 2009 but the 5-door hatchback trim is fairly new. This body style combines a sporty look with the utility that a hatchback affords you with the increased cargo room. The 2013 Kia Forte SX model is the top of the line trim level that comes standard with all the goodies and the larger displacement engine. On the outside the SX trim gets you larger 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and a Sport-Tuned Suspension just to name a few. On the inside the SX comes standard with Sport Cloth Seats, a leather wrapped steering wheel, and medal pedals. The 2013 Kia Forte SX 5-door hatchback has a base price of $19,800. Hatchbacks are one of the more polarizing cars for sale in America. Enthusiasts love them because they make sense after all they are very popular in Europe. But here in the U.S., not so much? The most popular hatchback in the America is the Toyota Prius which is more known as a hybrid than a hatchback. What we have here is the Kia Forte 5-door which is one of the most affordable hatchbacks at a starting price of around $18,300. The car looks good and has a very European flair to it. But Kia has fallen a little short when compared to its key hatchback competitors the Volkswagen Golf and the Mazda3. What separates a hatchback from a sedan is pretty obvious. You have got a more practical cargo area rather than a traditional trunk. The second row seats are a 60/40 split which makes things very practical. For people who are not looking for the larger crossover should look into smaller compact hatchbacks like the Forte 5-door. Kia has really simplified the buying matrix for the 2013 Forte hatchback. There are only 2 models: the EX and the SX. The EX has the smaller 2.0 liter engine that makes 156 horsepower and gets 26 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway. The SX model has the larger more sporty 2.4 liter engine that produces 173 horsepower and 168 lb-ft. of torque while getting 23 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic but it's the SX trim that gets steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. Kia separates themselves from the competition by offering a great 10 year/100 mile powertrain warranty. This car just oozes practicality. It is very versatile and affordable. The fuel economy figures are also very respectable. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/ Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel





2012 Volkswagen GTI DSG Test Dive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/volkswagen/gti/2012/ The 2012 Volkswagen GTI is just about the most fun you can have in a car for around $25,000. A compact performance car is judged based on its engine. And the GTI has one of the best all-around 4-cylinder engines in the world. In fact this engine powers numerous Volkswagen and Audi vehicles. But the 2012 Volkswagen GTI is not just a car with a wonderful engine; the GTI is also a good looking car that is well balanced, and quite comfortable. In fact you can get the Volkswagen GTI in both a 2-door and 4-door hatchback body style. The base price is $23,995 with the top of the line Autobahn model costing $31,695. The 2012 Volkswagen GTI is powered by a direct injection turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft. of torque. While this may not seem like a ton of power, it is more than enough for the everyday driver. Power is transmitted through a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels. The automatic transmission is called the DSG which stands for Direct-Shift Gearbox. This double clutch electronically controlled transmission can execute a shift in mere milliseconds. This helps performance figures such as 0-60 MPH as well as adding to the fuel economy of the GTI. The manual transmission model gets 21 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway while the DSG automatic transmission model gets 24 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway. On the inside of the 2012 Volkswagen GTI you have 2 choices when it comes to seating material. There are the cloth seats that are very unique and serve as a tribute to the first GTI from the 1970's. On the other hand you can get your GTI with top sports seats that are finished in leather and provide a comfortable yet firm feel. The rest of the interior of the 2012 Volkswagen GTI is accented here and there with awesome red stitching on the shift boot and steering wheel. Speaking of the steering wheel; this flat bottom unit has integrated controls for the stereo. The pedals are also very sporty and race inspired. The GTI also features a ton of technology built in. On the outside the daytime LED running lights are a standard safety feature that not only looks great but also makes you more visible to oncoming traffic. Bluetooth comes standard on the GTI and you can upgrade to a touch-screen navigation unit. On the safety front the GTI sports 6 airbags, Electronic Stability Control, and an Intelligent Crash Response System. The attention to safety has resulted in the Volkswagen GTI being picked as a 2012 Top Safety Pick by the IIHS.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible 70's Edition Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/ Believe it or not the Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet dates all the way back to the late 1940's. And over that span Volkswagen has sold millions of these cars. The Beetle went through a redesign for the 2011 model year and the current edition Beetle Convertible is available in a number of different trims with varying equipment and engine types. The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible reviewed here is the 70's edition which comes with retro-style 18-inch wheels, a Fender premium stereo system, and other aesthetic touches. The base model Volkswagen Beetle Convertible starts at $24,995 with the 70's Edition costing $28,595. The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet is the most affordable 4 seat convertible on the market here in the U.S. There may be cheaper cars on the market but those are not true convertibles where the entire top retracts. This Beetle is iconic, attractive, stylish, and affordable with the starting price of under $25k. Volkswagen has been making the Beetle Convertible since 1949 and they know a thing or two about making fun and attractive convertibles. The engine that powers the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible 70's Edition is a 2.5 liter 5-cylinder that makes 170 horsepower and 177 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is pretty good at 21 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway. When you want a fun and practical convertible the Beetle Cabriolet is a great choice. The cloth convertible top on the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle 70's Edition is one of the best in the industry. Not only did VW make it lighter and quieter, they also added a motor that allows you to work the top at speeds nearing 30 MPH. The best part is it only takes 9.5 seconds to open or close. The interior of the Beetle Convertible is very roomy, practical, and modern. This redesigned model is lower, wider, and more sporty. The result is that more men are buying Beetle's now than ever before. Volkswagen has something for everyone. You can get the Beetle Convertible with upgraded technology packages, upgraded sound packages, bigger and better engines, and of course the 60's and 70's Edition. The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle is the most affordable and fun convertible cars you can buy in America.
