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 Land Rover Range Rover Test Drive & Luxury SUV Video Review
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 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.

2014 Chevy Corvette C7 Stingray Interview Video with Harlan Charles @ 2013 Detroit Auto Show
http://www.autobytel.com/auto-shows/united-states/detroit/?id=32972 Road Test Editor Benjamin Hunting catches up with Harlan Charles, Corvette Product Manager, at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show for some excellent insights on the new C7 Stingray. How did you balance the evolution of the design with what people come to expect to see in a Corvette? "We really wanted to create an all new Corvette, every surface, everything people see was intended to be all new but also unmistakably Corvette. In the back of our minds we wanted to bring back the passion of the Stingray; some of the famous Corvettes like the 1959 Corvette racecar designed by Bill Mitchell, or the 1963 split-window. We wanted to bring back some of that passion but necessarily the same design cues. The goal was to create a new Corvette statement going forward that builds on the past but in an entirely new way. So one of the fine balances we did was incorporating a lot of racing technology which you can see in the car via the functional air vents and cooling outlets derived from the racecar while at the same time trying to make the car more sophisticated and upscale." Are we going to see different variations of the Corvette that will allow you to take on higher end GT cars? "Within the new Corvette Stingray line-up we have the Z-51 Performance Package to satisfy those who are looking for more track oriented performance, but then there will be different options at a higher luxury level that can be added on such as faux leather or suede headliner. We are going to have a lot of different ways that you can tailor the car to your needs whether it is more towards the performance end of the spectrum or the luxury GT end. What this will do is not only open the car up to the hard-core performance enthusiasts, but also to those who appreciate cars in general." Will there be additional smaller displacement engines in the future? "I will say the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray does have a large displacement 6.2 liter engine, but there is an Eco-Mode with cylinder deactivation which essentially makes the car under certain conditions a 3.1 liter 4-cylinder. With this technology we are allowing people to have the best of both worlds: a large V-8 with 450 ft.-lbs. of torque when you want it and you can also have the fuel economy of a 4-cylinder." The Corvette gets faster with each new generation; will we ever hit a wall in terms of performance? "We keep pushing the technology envelope. On the C6 Corvette, we never thought that the car would make over 630 horsepower in the ZR-1, but we did surpass that figure. And I think the performance will keep on going, people will always want more power and more speed. We are going to keep pushing the envelope as much as we can."

2013 Kia Forte SX 5-Door Hatchback Test Drive & Compact Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/kia/forte/2013/?id=32972 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/?id=32972 Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel





2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid Car Video Review and Test Drive
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/c-max-hybrid/2013/?id=32972 The Ford C-Max was named Autobytel's Alternative Fuel Car of the Year for 2013. This compact car combines good looks, a fuel efficient powerplant, low cost, and tons of utility into a great all around package. The C-Max has been available in Europe and abroad since 2003. But Ford decided to bring the 2nd generation to the U.S. but this time it would be powered by a hybrid powerplant. The 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid has a base price of $25,200 and gets 47 MPG. Few vehicles live up to the hype generated by the manufacturer. The Ford C-Max Hybrid may be one of the exceptions that does indeed live up to the hype. The C-Max is based on the wildly successful Focus. The C-Max is essentially a compact 5-door pseudo crossover that gets 47 MPG on the highway and in the city. On the outside, everything about the car is designed to make the C-Max more aerodynamic and fuel efficient. Up front tis the signature grille associated with all Ford hybrids. The headlights are raked back giving it a real European flair. Ford targeted the Toyota Prius V as a key competitor. Even though the C-Max has less cargo room, it does serve essentially the same purpose. The 2013 Ford C-Max is also more affordable coming in over $1000 less. For people buying in this segment, the rear cargo hold is a very important area. The C-Max not only has an automatic hatch, but it has more cargo room that the standard Focus and the regular Toyota Prius; even with the additional batteries required for the hybrid powerplant. The interior of the 2013 Ford C-Max not only oozes with comfort and spaciousness, but it also has a lot of great technology. Beside the one analog speedometer, the rest of the instruments are digital. To the left and to the right of the speedometer are LCD screens that display vital engine and fuel economy information. This makes the 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid feel very high tech. The infotainment technology consists of the Sync and the MyFord Touch systems. The C-Max offers great visibility out of the large front windshield. The C-max Hybrid is easy to drive and easy to maneuver around town. It is also a great long distance driver. Acceleration is not bad for a hybrid. The 2.0 liter gasoline engine produces 188 horsepower. The CVT transmission also gets it right!
