Roadfly.com - 2011 Infiniti M56 Road Test & Review

Beautifully sleek and curvaceous, the 2011 Infiniti M56 is an exciting and luxurious ride. Infiniti has lengthened this year's models dimensions, increasing the length, height and width overall. Its new powerful engine and flowing redesign are all intact from the 2010 model as well. Roadfly TV and host Ross Rapoport took a good look at the M56 and they were very impressed. Under the hood the Infiniti boasts some true and surprising power. The M56 has a 5.6-liter V8 engine that produces 420 horsepower and gets 417 pound-feet of torque. This impressive feat lets the M get to 60 mph in a time of roughly 4.9 seconds. The seven-speed automatic transmission is flawless, shifting gears with a fluid ease, making great use out of all 420 horses. Inside, the Infiniti shines. The dash and interior materials are made from Japanese ash wood, giving a the M56 a unique and timeless aesthetic. Comfortability and luxury are not a problem here. Altogether the Infiniti M56, sold as the Nissan Fuga in Japan, is a seductive competitor to such European hallmarks as the BMW 5-Series or the Mercedes-Benz E550 and is hot on their heels in terms of desirability and driving enthusiasm. Drivers seeking a classy and distinguished alternative to the European market would do well to take a close look at the M56.

Roadfly.com - 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon w/Tech Package Road Test & Review
New for 2011, the TSX Sport Wagon adds an extra-strength dose of utility to Acura's entry-level model. The addition of the wagon bodystyle gives the TSX more cargo room than competitors from Audi, BMW, and Volvo, at almost 26 cubic feet with the rear seats up, and over 60 cubic inches with the seats folded. Powertrain options are limited: the TSX Sport Wagon comes only with the base 2.4L inline-4, paired with a 5-speed automatic. That gets the car to 60mph in the mid-eight-second range, and delivers an EPA-rated 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway. Priced at $34,610 (plus $860 destination charge), our fully loaded TSX Sport Wagon with Technology Package substantially undercut the starting MSRPs of competing wagons from Audi and BMW. Its huge price advantage, combined with Acura's typically excellent reliability and resale value makes this wagon an extremely smart buy. —Ross Rapoport, Road Test Editor & Video Host To see additional pictures and the window sticker for the 2011 TSX Sport Wagon Tech Package, visit: http://roadflytv.com Vehicle: 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon w/Technology Package Base Price: $34,610 Price as tested: $35,470 Engine: DOHC 16v 2.4 inline four-cylinder Transmission: 5-speed automatic w/Sequential SportShift horsepower: 201 hp @ 7,000 rpm Torque: 170 lb-ft @ 4,300 rpm 0-60 MPH: 8.5 seconds 1/4-mile time: 16.5 sec. @ 84.9 mph Warranty: 6 yr/70,000 mi powertrain warranty; 5 yr/60,000 mi limited vehicle warranty Fuel economy (EPA miles per gallon rating): 22 city / 30 highway MPG Roadfly.com - http://www.roadfly.com Car Forum - http://www.roadfly.com/forums RoadflyTV - http://www.youtube.com/roadflytv Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/roadfly Twitter - http://twitter.com/roadfly IMDB - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1790415/





Roadfly.com - 2011 Mercedes S400 Hybrid Test Drive & Review
Mercedes-Benz, a company whose reputation for innovation has been somewhat overshadowed in recent years, has just staked out a new piece of territory. The 2011 Mercedes S400 hybrid is, in my opinion, the finest hybrid car available, and makes fewer compromises than any alternative-fuel vehicle we've seen to date. Mercedes calls it a "light hybrid." It's the first regular-series production car in the world with a lithium-ion battery, the same kind used in a cell phone or a laptop, and a different animal altogether from the nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) batteries used in pretty much every other hybrid. That allows the battery pack to be so small and compact that is mounted up front, in the engine compartment. Most hybrids mount their batteries in the rear of the car, cramping rear-seat room or trunk space (or both). So, the S400 has a full-size rear seat and a full-size trunk. It's also equipped with a 7-speed automatic, not a CVT like most other hybrids. That makes it feel more like a 'real' car and less like a hybrid. There's truly too much to list about this car, so check out my video and watch for a full article soon! —Ross Rapoport, Road Test Editor and Video Host Visit http://roadflytv.com for more pictures and a downloadable window sticker.
