2013 Volkswagen Golf GTD Test Drive & Car Video Review

http://www.autobytel.com/volkswagen/?id=32972 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 Kia Rio Sedan Test Drive & Compact Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/kia/rio/2013/?id=32972 The Kia Rio is one of the lowest priced cars on the market today. In the past the Rio was known as a simple form of transportation that was really only good as a daily driver. But recently Kia gave the Rio a thorough redesign and the results speak for themselves. Now the Rio is one of the best looking cars in the subcompact class and it also offers some of the best standard and features. The new 2013 Kia Rio sedan has a base price of $13,600. The Kia Rio used to be the joke of the sub-compact segment. The car was not very good-looking, the handling wasn't great, and the power was weak. But it was a cheap set of wheels that had good fuel economy ratings. Now though, thanks to Peter Schreyer the Chief of Design for Kia, the Rio is one of the better looking cars in the sub-compact segment. The 2013 Kia Rio is available in 2 different body styles; a 5-door hatchback and a 4-door sedan. The sedan is much better looking as everything integrates nicely on the exterior. There is plenty of trunk space out back and the car drives pretty well. Kia has made a great commitment to direct-injection technology. Under the hood of the 2013 Kia Rio lives a 1.6 liter direct-injection GDi 4-cylinder engine that makes 138 horsepower and 123 lb-ft. of torque. You can opt for either a manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Fuel economy figures are 29 MPG in the city and 37 MPG on the highway. With a starting price of under $18k for the top of the line model, you can really get some great standard features and by upgrading to the Premium Package you can get a push-button start, leather seating, and a navigation unit with a 7-inch screen. These are great amenities for an entry level compact car. There are a lot of great cars in this segment and when you combine a nice 100k mile warranty along with the new exterior design, the Rio is certainly a great choice for a sub-compact car.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible 70's Edition Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/volkswagen/beetle/?id=32972 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.

2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI Test Drive & Turbo Diesel Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/volkswagen/passat/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Volkswagen Passat gives you the best of 2 worlds: fuel efficiency and driving dynamics. The diesel engine gets wonderful fuel economy while the turbocharger and manual transmission pair to create an involved driving experience. This newest generation Passat is available with a couple of different engine combinations at various price points ranging from just over $20k to $33k but the vehicle reviewed here has the 2.0 liter TDI engine and retails for $26,225. Fuel economy is on the mind of most automobile shoppers these days so naturally hybrid vehicles have become very popular. But Volkswagen has been producing high MPG cars for over a decade that are powered by a turbo diesel engine instead of a hybrid power plant to break the 40 MPG barrier. The 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI is the classic example of German engineering and simplicity. There is nothing extravagant about the Passat; instead the exterior styling is more about muted lines rather than something flashy. This though is the norm for the mid-sized car where all the vehicles look the same. At the heart of the 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI lives a 2.0 turbocharged diesel 4-cylinder with direct injection. The engine makes 140 horsepower and 236 lb-ft. of torque. That low end grunt is what makes this diesel more exciting to drive compared to a hybrid. All that power is available at a very low 1750 RPM. Paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, the Passat TDI manages 31 MPG in the city and 43 MPG on the highway. The real thrill of driving this fuel efficient car does not come from the overall driving experience, yes it is appealing but the real thrill you get is from the fuel economy. The inside of the 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI is not only roomy but well equipped. There are tons of standard options and features like: cruise control, automatic doors and windows, Bluetooth, touchscreen sound system, and more. You also get a whole host of safety features on the new Passat that rival many high end cars in this segment.

http://www.autobytel.com/land-rover/range-rover/2013/?id=32972 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 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.

Volkswagen Golf GTI MK6 hatchback 2009 - 2012 review - CarBuyer
See the full review here: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/volkswagen/golf/gti-hatchback/review The latest Volkswagen Golf GTI is a lesson to other hot hatch makers in design, build quality and image. Factor in impressive performance and genuine day-to-day practicality, and it's no wonder the famous GTI badge still proves so popular. It's available as a three or five-door hatchback, and is based on the standard Golf. The GTI has recently faced tough competition in the form of the Renaultsport Megane 265 and Ford Focus ST. The 2.0-litre turbocharged engine has 207bhp in standard guise, while the limited-run Edition 35 comes with 232bhp, although that's not as much power as the Megane or Focus. Performance is strong and the handling sporty, but it's more comfortable than its rivals and boasts a high-quality interior.
