2013 Volkswagen Beetle vs Eos Convertible snowy 0-16 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Volkswagen Beetle convertible and the VW Eos are cars tailor made for warm and sunny destinations like California and Florida. While the VW Beetle convertible has a soft top that folds down for topless driving fun, the Volkswagen Eos has a hardtop that also folds down in a ballet of engineering prowess. Both car will seat 4 people and both cars are front wheel drive. Both cars of course offer year round driving fun but how do these convertibles fare in the cold North when the snow starts to fly and the roads freeze. We decided to find out by putting both convertibles to the very first TFLcar 0-16-0 MPH test, as well as our brand new snowball performance roof test in another fun TFLcar Mashup review.
2013 Volvo XC60 versus BMW X1 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 2013 Volvo XC60 T6 and the 2013 BMW X1 xDrive 35i have a lot in common. Both cars are powered by a 3.0-Liter engine. Both engines are turbo-charged by a twin scroll turbo. Both engines produce 300 HP. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic and both engines power all four wheels with via all-wheel-drive. Of course the BMW is much smaller and the Volvo is much bigger. Interestingly both cars as tested also have a M.S.R.P of just over $48,000 USD. In this fun and informative TFLcar review, we put both vehicles to the test to see which one is faster to 60 MPH.
2013 Nissan Pathfinder vs Dodge Durango 0-60 MPH Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is now a new school 7 passenger family hauling Crossover. With a CVT and front-wheel-drive the base Nissan Pathfinder is engineered to sip fuel instead of finding paths in the great untamed wilderness. On the other hand the 2013 Dodge Durango is much more of an old school Crossover. In base trim the Durango has a rear-wheel-drive set-up mated to a 5-speed automatic powered by a somewhat larger V6. Of course can be had with a all-wheel-drive but in this mashup we wanted to see which of these two vehicles is the better family hauling truckster. Check out another fun, informative and exclusive TFLcar mashup as we put both of these Crossovers to the 0-60 MPH test @ a mile above sea level.
2014 KIA Sorento Muddy Off-Road AWD Review (Part 1)
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2014 KIA Sorento is 80 percent new. From the outside it might look like a slight refreshed car, but it has a new direct injected 3.3L V-6 engine, new interior and new suspension set-up. It also three rows of seats and and all-wheel-drive. Of course most people will use the 2014 KIA Sorento as a family and stuff hauling machine but we figured if it can tackle the Colorado Mountains it can tackle the very worse snow storm that buyers might even face. In other fun and informative part 1 TFLcar review, we take the new 2014 KIA Sorento off-road to see how it does when the road turns muddy, steep and snowy.
