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.

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.

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 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.

NEW Golf 7 4MOTION on Snow
Volkswagen is expanding the new Golf range: following the models with front-wheel drive launched at the end of 2012, the versions with 4MOTION all-wheel drive are now being unveiled. Volkswagen is thus continuing the long tradition of four-wheel drive Golf models -- the first Golf with four driven wheels made its debut back in 1986. The new Golf's permanent four-wheel drive system is one of the most modern and efficient of its kind in the world. In this latest version of the Golf 4MOTION Volkswagen is using a four-wheel drive system with an enhanced, fifth-generation Haldex coupling. The intelligently controlled 4MOTION drive weighs 1.4 kilograms less than the previous system, requires no pressure accumulator and reacts extremely quickly to every conceivable influence exerted on it. The result is greater active safety and improved handling. 15 per cent lower fuel consumption. Volkswagen is offering the new Golf 4MOTION in Europe in three levels of specification (Trendline, Comfortline, Highline) and with two turbo diesel engines that provide both high torque and great fuel efficiency. The common rail four-cylinder engines deliver 77 kW / 105 PS and 110 kW / 150 PS and consume just 4.5 / 4.7 litres of fuel respectively per 100 kilometres. Just how efficiently the four-wheel drive Golf works is shown by a fuel consumption comparison between the 103 kW / 140 PS version of the old Golf 4MOTION and the new 150 PS model: despite being 10 PS more powerful, the 2013 Golf 4MOTION consumes 0.8 litres (15 per cent) less diesel. High tech as standard. Like the front-wheel drive versions the new 4MOTION models are equipped as standard with a Stop/Start system and battery regeneration. Also included as standard even on the base version (Trendline) are features such as the four-wheel EDS (electronic differential locks on both axles), the XDS front and rear axle transverse lock, the electronic stabilisation programme, an Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, seven airbags, daytime running lights, air conditioning, electric windows front and back, a multi-function display (on-board computer) and a TFT display with touchscreen operation. The premium payable for the permanent four-wheel drive system on the Golf 4MOTION -- sold fundamentally as a four-door vehicle -- is €1,800 in Germany. ► http://www.facebook.com/youcarpress
