2012 Chevrolet Suburban Test Drive & SUV Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/suburban-1500/2012/?id=32972 Want to know the oldest nameplate in Automotive History? The Suburban has been around since 1935 and over the years it has been billed as a carryall vehicle. The 2012 Chevrolet Suburban is a full sized SUV that provides seating for 7, a big V-8 engine, and a high tow payload capacity. This full-size SUV is easy to drive with good acceleration, braking, and handling abilities. The base price for a 2012 Chevrolet Suburban is $42,220 with the top of the line LTZ 4x4 costing $58,115.
On the outside the Suburban is known for its rugged good looks. Chevy added some nice lines to break up the big boxy look. Up front the chrome grille and big headlights look good. The 18-inch aluminum wheels look nice but you can upgrade to 20-inch or 22-inch wheels. The interior of the Suburban is very functional and you can upgrade to a higher trim level or add additional packages to meet your level of luxury. The 2012 Chevrolet Suburban can seat up to 8 or 9 passengers. There are modern conveniences like a driver information center complete with large screen and navigation. The seats are heated and cooled. There is also an nice DVD entertainment system for both the 2nd and 3rd row of passengers.
The 2012 Chevy Suburban is motivated by a Vortec 5.3 liter V-8 engine that makes 320 horsepower and 335 lb-ft. of torque. The maximum towing capacity is 8100 lbs. There is a heavy duty trailering package available for only $230 that adds an oil cooler for the engine and an oil cooler for the transmission oil. The package also adds a 3.42 rear axle ratio. The Suburban has a couple of fuel saving techniques that include an Active Fuel Management system which turns-off 4 cylinders under light use. Fuel economy ratings check in at 15 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway.
If you need a full-size SUV that can fit all your family and friends along with your necessary luggage and can also tow your toys out back, the 2012 Chevrolet Suburban is for you.

2012 Fiat 500 Abarth Test Drive & Sub-Compact Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/fiat/500/2012/abarth/?id=32972 The 2012 Fiat 500
Abarth comes packing a turbocharged
motor that delivers a heaping amount of torque at low RPM's which allows
the driver to get off the line quick. The suspension is stiffer and the
exterior is more aggressive. The Fiat 500 Abarth is a sub-compact car that
is a total blast to drive. The MSRP on a 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth is $22,000.
Back in the 1950's Carlo Abarth used Fiat vehicles as race cars. These
little automobiles were very successful racers and Carlo Abarth ventured
out making high performance parts for Fiat vehicles. Fiat then bought out
Abarth in 1971 and designated that name for their racing department. Fast
forward to 2012 and we have a potent little rocket in the Fiat 500 Abarth.
Differentiating the Abarth from a more mundane Fiat 500 is easy. The Abarth
model will carry with it the signature scorpion badges that Abarth is known
for. Other styling ques include an Abarth sport stripe, performance front
bumper, twin Exhaust, 2-piece rear
fascia, rear spoiler, and 17-inch rims. On the inside the 2012 Fiat Abarth
treats the driver to high performance sport seats, a flat-bottom steering
wheel, aluminum pedals, Boost gauge,
Bose sound system, and more.
It's the performance aspect that sets the 2012 Fiat Abarth apart from the
rest of the pack. Then engine is a turbocharged 16-valve 1.4 liter 4-cylinder that
makes 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft. of
torque. The power control module makes sure the Abarth is operating at peak
performance while in Sport mode. The car still manages to get 28 MPG in the
city and 34 MPG on the highway too! The wheels are wrapped in sticky
Pirelli P Zero tires for additional stick. Suspension wise the 2012 Fiat
500 Abarth features stiffer springs and KONI shocks for added handling
performance. The steering is quicker and more responsive thanks to a tuned
system calibrated around the electric power steering unit. The brakes are
larger rotors to take care of any spirited driving needs.
The 2012 Fiat Abarth is full of personality and it drives around like an
angry little car looking for a fight. This is great for the driver that
wants a fun and sporty sub-compact car. The turbocharged engine provides plenty of motivation
while the suspension is capable of handling the twisties. As an added bonus
all Fiat 500 Abarth buyers will get to experience a personalized Abarth
Track Experience which include track instruction with a professional

10 of the Best Seven Seater SUVs - Autobytel's 7 Passenger SUV List
though more and more Americans are downsizing to save money, there is still
a need for 7 passenger SUVs and Crossovers. Let's take a look at 10 of the
best seven seater SUVs in the U.S.A.
10) Lincoln MKT - The Lincoln MKT is a luxury version of the Ford Flex with
a total cargo area of over 70 cubic feet. The engine that powers the MKT is
3.7 liter V-6 but there is also a 3.5 liter ecoBoost V-6 engine option. The Lincoln MKT can
be had with AWD too. But what really makes the MKT stand out from the crown
of seven seater SUVs is its unique styling featuring a massive front
9) Buick Enclave -- The Buick Enclave is a worth advisory for some of the 7
Passenger Luxury SUVs like the Acura MDX. The 3.6 liter direct injection
V-6 is a proven commodity having over 280 horsepower plus the ability
to tow 4500 lbs. Where this seven passenger SUV really shines is the
interior. The Enclave is comprised of high quality materials and top notch
technology which help the Enclave make it to the list of 10 best seven
8) Subaru Tribeca -- The Tribeca is Subaru's largest vehicle offering
boasting AWD and room for 7 passengers. With tons of interior room the
Tribeca is not only an effective hauler but it also a capable off-road SUV.
The 3.6 liter V-6 makes over 250 horsepower which is enough
to get the job done.
7) Acura MDX -- The Acura MDX is one of those vehicles that absolutely
nailed its mission statement by being a reliable premium SUV that is built
to last. Standard Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive makes this a sure footed
seven seater SUV. The 3.7 liter V-6 engine provides plenty of power. The
Acura MDX is one of those rare vehicles that owners want to keep forever.
6) Ford Expedition -- The Ford Expedition is a true body-on-frame SUV that
can handle 7 or 8 passengers and their gear thanks to 108 cubic feet or
storage. This large SUV can also tow over 9000 lbs. The 301 horsepower 5.4 liter V-8
might not be the most cutting edge but its works well when mated to the
6-speed automatic transmission. The Expedition is an old school SUV and you
can negotiate deep discounts on this seven seater vehicle.
5) Honda Pilot -- Honda was a little bit late to the SUV game with the
Pilot but they have quickly emerged as a measuring stick for other brands.
The 250 horsepower
3.5 liter V-6 engine is the smallest in the group but it does feature
cylinder deactivation to help save fuel. Perhaps the greatest attribute of
this 7 passenger SUV is that it's very easy to drive for its size. Honda
understands how these SUVs are being used so they made this one of the best
on the market for families.
4) Infiniti JX -- When Infiniti launched the 7 passenger JX crossover,
their #1 objective was to give shoppers a viable alternative to the Acura
MDX. Early sales success indicates they have a winner on their hands. The
aggressive styling, cutting edge entertainment, and trick motorized second
row make the JX one great choice as the best seven seater SUVs. The
Infiniti JX is built for comfort and the CVT trans eliminates shifting so
that the 3.5 liter V-6 engine keeps all 265 horses running smoothly.
3) Mazda CX-9 -- The Mazda CX-9 has remained relatively unchanged since its
debut back in 2007. Although this seven seater SUV is one of the oldest, it
still represents a great value. The 3.7 liter V-6 makes 273 horsepower and is mated to a
6-speed automatic. What the CX-9 may lack in flash more than makes up in
the areas of reliability and overall value. Mazda may be known more for
their Zoom Zoom cars but they can also make some great family automobiles
that can transport up to 7 people.
2) Nissan Armada -- When Nissan launched the Armada, the intention was to
put a dent in Suburban and Expedition sales by providing a full-sized truck
based vehicle with Japanese engineering. The Armada's 5.7 liter V-8 engine
is more than capable of carrying 7 passengers, their luggage, and a towing
a larger object weighing over 9000 lbs. While there are many 7 seater SUVs
and crossovers out there, few can transport them as comfortably as the
1) Chevrolet Suburban -- At the top of the Autobytel best seven passenger
car list is the Chevy Suburban. This is one of the longest running
nameplates in the automotive world spanning many decades. There is a reason
for this; the Suburban can carry 7 or 8 passengers, all their gear, and
more with a very comfortable ride.

tow 6900 lbs. There are 3 models of Sequoia for purchase: the base SR5
costs $40,930, the Limited costs $51,040, and the Platinum costs $58,580.

torque. The larger engine is a 5.7 liter V-8 motor that makes 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft. of
torque. Both engine comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Fuel
economy is 14 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway for the smaller 4.6
liter engine and 13 MPG in the city and 18 MPG on the highway for the
larger 5.7 liter engine.
On the outside there are a ton of standard features. The bumpers are color
matched to the rest of the body. The Sequoia gets standard fog lamps and a
chrome grille surround. The stock 18-inch alloy wheels look great but you
can upgrade to a set of 20-inch alloy sport wheels which really stand out.
The rear liftgate automatically opens and closes. Also the Sequoia comes
standard with a roof rack, running boards, and mud guards.
On the inside the Sequoia base model gets cloth seating but the Premium
models get leather seats that are power adjustable. The standard radio
comes with a CD player, Bluetooth, iPod connection, and Sirius XM Satellite
Radio. You can upgrade to a great 12-speaker JBL Synthesis stereo system.
There is also a touch-screen navigation unit as an option. As stated
earlier the 2012 Toyota Sequoia can seat up to 8 passengers. But there is
an option which swaps out the middle row seating with 2 oversized Captains
Chairs. The Sequoia also comes with power everything as a standard feature.
