2013 Toyota RAV4 Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review

http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/rav4/?id=32972 The Toyota RAV4 first hit the shores here in the U.S. back in 1996. This little crossover SUV along with the Honda CR-V is responsible for starting the crossover craze. Today there are almost 50 different crossover models for sale here in America. The 4th generation RAV4 is an updated model that gets a complete interior and exterior redesign as well as an updated powerplant. The 2013 Toyota RAV4 comes in 3 trim levels: the LE, the XLE, and the top of the line Limited. The base price on the LE trim is just under $25k The RAV4 vs. CR-V battle reminds us of the old Ford vs. Chevy battles during the muscle car era. Over the past few years the Honda CR-V has really taken over the segment, gaining the most market share. But the all-new 2013 Toyota RAV4 aims to get back on top of the crossover sales charts. There are a ton of new features and lots of changes that make the 4th generation RAV4 the best ever. The past generation Toyota RAV4 came with a choice of a 4-cylinder or V-6 engine. Well the larger V-6 has been dropped and now the only engine offered is an efficient 2.5 liter 4-cylinder making 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft. of torque. What that means is coupled with the standard 6-speed automatic transmission and FWD; the 2013 Toyota RAV4 will return 31 MPG on the highway. You can also opt for an AWD version as a $1400 option. The 2013 Toyota RAV4 has been completely redesigned outside and in. It all starts with a brand new front end consisting of a bold grille and headlights that look similar to the new Camry. This generation RAV4 was made more aerodynamic and the result is better fuel economy. If you are buying a crossover chances are you may be driving around small children. The new Toyota RAV4 comes with a segment leading 8 standard air bags. Toyota engineers also worked the interior design to allow for the most cargo volume in the segment. The interior of the 2013 Toyota RAV4 is completely new with some great new features including an Acoustic Windshield which helps reduce wind noise. From the driver's perspective, the new instrumentation is pleasing while being easy to use. After the 7 year run of the previous model, Toyota has really stepped it up inside the cabin. The 2013 Toyota RAV4 sits nicely on the road and you will like the way it drives on the highway. This is an economy crossover SUV after all so you shouldn't expect the RAV4 to ride like a luxury car. Bottom line is that Toyota did a great job on the newly redesigned RAV4. They really hit the mark on this one and it's a huge improvement over the outgoing model. The 2013 Toyota RAV4 certainly has all the features you need. In fact the RAV4 can now compete with the Honda CR-V at the top of the economy crossover SUV segment.

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/hyundai/santa-fe/?id=32972 The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe is a brand new redesign that makes this the 3rd generation automobile. It's hard to believe that the Santa Fe came out back in 1998. Back then there were not many crossovers on the market yet. Now that practically every automobile manufacturer has a crossover, Hyundai is playing it smart. They have gotten rid of the Veracruz model and then Hyundai has created a long wheel base and a short wheel base Santa Fe. Prices start at $24,450. There are 2 different engine options available on the 2013 Santa Fe Sport. The first is a direct injected 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 190 horsepower and 181 lb-ft. of torque. The second engine is a 2.0 liter turbocharged and gasoline direct injected motor that makes 264 horsepower and 269 lb-ft. of torque. The standard transmission is a 6-speed automatic. Fuel economy is 31 MPG combined for the turbo and 33 MPG combined for the naturally aspirated engine. On the inside the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a great 8-inch Navigation as an option. The panoramic sunroof is ultra cool and lets rear passengers enjoy the fresh air and sunlight. The Santa Fe Sport comes standard with many great features like cruise control, power windows and locks, Bluetooth, and steering wheel mounted audio controls to name a few. Safety wise the Santa Fe comes with 7 airbags, stability control, traction control, and anti-lock brakes. These items are all standard on the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Many improvements have been made and maybe the most important is the reduction in weight. The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe weighs 266 lbs. less than the previous model. That weight reduction has a positive effect on fuel economy. The Santa Fe Sport can carry up to 5 people. The rear seat is a 40/20/40 split bench making for a versatile crossover SUV. You can order the Santa Fe in either FWD or AWD configurations. The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is priced right alongside its competition. But with the Santa Fe you get more standard features for your money along with a great 10 year 100k mile warranty.

2013 Audi RS 5 Track Test Drive & Sports Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/audi/rs-5/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Audi RS 5 is a great performing luxury sports car that is a true competitor to the BMW M3 and Mercedes C63 AMG. If this car proves to be anything close to the previous RS models it will be rare, collectable, and a great value with a starting price of under $70k. Anytime Audi manufacturers a vehicle with the letter "R" in the model name, you know the car is going to be a high performance machine. Think about the RS 4, RS 6, TT RS, and of course the legendary R8 are all great sports cars. What we have here for the first time ever in the U.S. is the Audi RS 5. This 2-door luxury sports coupe has a base price of $68,900. There are many ways the 2013 Audi RS 5 is distinguished from the A5/S5. The first thing you will notice is the massive front grille called the Singleframe grille with diamond mesh and Aluminum optic surround. Out back the Adaptive rear spoiler is unique to the RS 5. There are other exterior cues too but it's really what you cannot see like the shocks, springs, wheels, and engine that set this car apart from the rest. There are 3 different engine offerings throughout the range of Audi A5/S5/RS 5 family of vehicles. The A5 gets a turbocharged 4-cylinder, the S5 gets a supercharged V-6, and the RS 5 has a normally aspirated V-8. The engine powering the 2013 Audi RS 5 is a 4.2 liter V-8 that makes 450 horsepower and 317 lb-ft. of torque. The only transmission offering is a 7-speed automatic with auto-shift. Fuel economy figures are 16 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway. But the 2013 Audi RS 5 is not so much about horsepower as it is about performance in cornering and handling. The standard wheels on the RS 5 are 19-inch 10-spoke wheels but you can upgrade to 20-inch wheels wrapped in 275/30 series tires. Of course every Audi performance ride comes with the addition of Quattro all-wheel drive. What's unique about the Quattro system on the 2013 Audi RS 5 is that 60% of the power goes to the rear wheels and extra power can be applied to the outside rear wheel during cornering. The 2013 Audi RS 5 is far from disappointing. It reminds us of a more refined version of the RS 4 sedan that was out a few years ago in the sense that you have a great roaring V-8 motor with the legendary Quattro AWD system that vehicles like the BMW M3 and Mercedes C63 AMG do not have. What that does is make average drivers good and good drivers better. This car is a thrill to drive both on the track and around town thanks to all the refinements Audi has put into the RS 5.

2012 Honda CR-V Test Drive & Crossover SUV Review
http://www.autobytel.com/honda/cr-v/2012/?id=32972 For years the Honda CR-V has been one of the most consistent top selling crossovers on the market. And for 2012; the CR-V got a complete makeover. The exterior of the CR-V features a much more sculpted and rounded body. Overall it is a much more aesthetically pleasing package. The 2012 Honda CR-V is powered by a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 185 horsepower and 163 lb-ft. of torque. The small engine size helps the CR-V to obtain great fuel economy ratings at 23 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway. On the inside the 2012 Honda CR-V seems much bigger with more room that you would expect. The rear seats fold down in a number of different configurations. The leather seats are well cushioned with good bolstering. Honda is known for driver ergonomics and everything on the CR-V is well within reach. The dash is clean and easy to read. Overall the interior is a nice place to spend time. The CR-V drives smooth and handles well. For years the Honda CR-V has been a class leader and with the newly redesigned model, it should continue to set the bar in the small crossover SUV segment. The base model 2012 Honda CR-Z retails for $22,295. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/?id=32972 Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel





Top 5 small off-road worthy Crossovers reviewed
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Wikipedia says, "a crossover is a vehicle built on a car platform and combining, in highly variable degrees, features of a sport utility vehicle (SUV) with features from a passenger vehicle, especially those of a station wagon or hatchback." We simply like to say that the crossover is the new family truckster. Here are the Top 5 off-road worthy crossovers that we've driven in 2011.





2014 Toyota RAV4 Compact Crossover Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF The big change for 2014 out back. It's not what you see, it's what you don't. The spare tire that clung to the back of the 2013 model like an octogenarian clinging to the past is gone. The removal of the tire makes completes the RAV4′s exterior transformation from Toyota Trucklet to crossover. By going hatch-mainstream, practicality is greatly improved allowing easier access when parallel parked or parked on a hill. Because of the RAV's increased dimensions and the new hatch, it is possible to fit 4×8 sheets inside if you leave the hatch cracked. The RAV4′s cargo hold has one of the lowest lift-over heights for loading in the compact crossover segment. While this makes loading easier, it means the hatch is closer to the ground and makes opening it more awkward. I thought I was alone, but some of our Facebook friends commented that the hatch hit them in the abdomen if they didn't take a large step backwards when opening it. Toyota decided to kill off optional V6 for 2014, leaving the 2.5L four-cylinder the only powerplant. While the switch is likely to offend a few, the vast majority of RAV4 sales were four-cylinder anyway. Toyota's logic was this: the prime competitor is the CR-V and it's four-cylinder only. The 2.5L engine is good for 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of twist placing it in the thick of the competition. Since the 2.5L is no longer the base engine Toyota fitted it with their 6-speed automatic transaxle to improve performance and fuel economy. MPGs rise to 24 City and 31 Highway in FWD trim which is above the CR-V and GM crossovers but well below the Mazda CX-5′s impressive 26/35 score (2.0L engine and manual transmission.) For $1,400 Toyota will toss in their full-time AWD system on any trim level. The RAV4′s AWD system follows the same formula as the rest with a multi-plate coupling acting as a quasi center differential. This system is somewhat unusual however because the driver can lock the coupling on demand via a button in the dash. Although the lock will self-disengage over 25MPH, only the Jeep crossovers offer a similar touch. Engaging the car's "sport" mode alters the throttle mapping, transmission shift points and encourages the coupling to lock more frequently to try and limit the FWD nature of the RAV. Toyota has a history of playing to the "meat" of every segment. Rarely does Toyota build anything extreme, be it the cheapest car in its class, the most expensive, fastest, slowest, etc. That describes the RAV4 to a tee. After a week with the RAV4 I wasn't offended but neither was I enraptured. Toyota's trucklet is reasonably priced ranging from $23,300-$28,410 and in most trims represents a decent (but not extreme) value compared to the competition. Yes, the CX-5 is more exciting, but like the more luxurious and gadget-rich Escape, it'll cost you more. The CR-V is quieter but it's also a few bucks more expensive. The Cherokee is more off-road capable but Chrysler's reliability reputation isn't exactly stellar. The Forester is the better choice for wagon lovers and the Sportage and Escape have powerful turbo options that speak to my heart. The GMC Terrain and Chevy Equinox have been refreshed and feature 301 horsepower mills for those that like to count ponies and an infotainment system that's more attractive than Entune. The new RAV is, without a doubt, a better 2-row crossover than the model it replaces. It's also a very pragmatic choice delivering a blend of good fuel economy, large cargo hold, an AWD system that's more capable than most in the segment and, being a Toyota, it's likely to have a good reliability record as well. The 2014 RAV4 is a solid crossover and you can't go wrong by putting one in your driveway. If however you want my advice, and since you're reading this I assume you do, check out the CX-5 and Escape before you sign on the dotted line.
