( http://www.TFLcar.com ) For 2013 the Audi Allroad Quattro is back in the United States and ready to take on both the more and less traveled roads of America. Unlike the previous Allroad the new 2013 Quattro is based on the Audi A4 Avant and not the A6. But Audi says the new car is just as big as the previous Allroad and better yet it gets better fuel economy. And according to Audi, it is even faster. So we (of course) wanted to find out not only how it drives on the road but just as importantly importantly off the road. Check out this first drive review and we test the new 2013 Audi Allroad Quattro in the rugged mountains of Colorado.
2013 Chevrolet Traverse First Drive & Review: Chevy's not so extreme makeover reviewed
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse has been restyled and
according to General Motors given a more athletic and stylish makeover.
Part of the redo is new and funky contrast stitching, ambient lighting and
even wood accents. The 8 passenger mover also gets GM's new 6.5-inch
touchscreen infotainment system as standard and the ability to tow up to
5,200 pounds. Nathan recently had a chance to test drive the new 2013 Chevy
Traverse in San Francisco and filed this first drive review.
2012 Land Rover LR4 vs Jeep Grand Cherokee Off-Road Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Land Rover LR4 and the 2012 Jeep Grand
Cherokee are two of the most off-road worthy family haulers that you can
buy. Both can be had with a massive V8 engine and both come with
all-wheel-drive to take on the wild Colorado West when the road turns
dusty. Both also have the pedigree to call themselves the very best
off-road rides that you can buy today. In this TFLcar mash-up review we see
which one of these two legendary off-road rides is better in the Colorado
Rockies. Is it the 375 horsepower Land Rover LR4 or
is it the HEMI powered 360 HP Jeep Grand Cherokee?
2014 Lexus LX570 takes on the extreme Loveland Gauntlet Blizzard Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What would you call a test of a car's
all-wheel-drive system that combines extreme winter conditions with hairpin
mountain turns and sheer cliffs and 12,000 feet of elevation gain in the
Rocky Mountains in a blinding blizzard? At TFLcar we'd call this the brand
new Loveland Gauntlet. Coming soon we take the brand new 2014 Lexus LX570
up the Loveland Gauntlet. Check out this extreme test of the new 2014 Lexus
LX570's ability to tame the winter mountains in an all out blizzard.

2012 Honda CR-V Off-Road Review & Drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Honda CR-V is all new from the ground
up. It is one of Honda's best selling cars so you can bet that the
company's engineers spent a lot of late nights working on the new CR-V. In
this review we drive and test the new CR-V both on and off-road in the
Colorado Rocky Mountains to see if the magic that makes the crossover such
a popular car is still to be found in this newest CR-V. Check out this
first first drive review video as we also test the new CR-V 0-60 MPH at one
mile above sea level.
Audi A4 Allroad vs. VW Passat Alltrack OFFROAD
In October 2010 Volkswagen presented at the 2010 Tokyo Motor Show the
Passat Alltrack. The Passat Alltrack bridges the gap between the passenger
VW range and the SUV range comprising the Tiguan and Touareg.
The Passat Alltrack has raised ground clearance from 135 to 165 mm which
improves approach angle from 13.5 to 16 degrees, departure angle from 11.9
to 13.6 degrees and ramp angle from 9.5 to 12.8 degrees when compared to
the standard Passat wagon. Passat Alltrack is the only VW in the passenger
range to offer 4Motion with off road driving programme, the off road system
works in conjunction with the ABS, electronic differential lock (EDL), DSG
& hill descent assist system to control the vehicle in an off road
The engine range of the Passat Alltrack consists of two 2.0L TDI with
outputs of 103 kW/140 hp & 125 kW/170 hp and two petrol engines, 1.8L
producing 118 kW/160 hp and 2.0L TSI producing 155 kW/207 hp. The TDI
models come standard with BlueMotion Technology packages with Stop/Start
system and battery regeneration mode for recovering braking energy. The two
lesser powered engine variants 2.0L TDI and 1.8L TSI are only available in
front wheel drive format with a manual 6 speed transmission. The rest of
the range with 4Motion has a 6 speed DSG automated manual transmission,
except the 2.0L TDI with 103 kW/140 hp has an option of 6 speed manual.
In 2012 at the New York Auto Show, VW showed a Passat Alltrack with 2.0L
TDI 125 kW/170 hp under Alltrack Concept nameplate to gauge response for a
future market in the offroad wagon segment.
Audi released the first official pictures of the B8 series A4 in August
2007, and unveiled the car to the public at the September 2007 Frankfurt
Motor Show. Saloon/sedan and Avant (estate/wagon) models are offered. The
Avant was unveiled to the public at the March 2008 Geneva Motor Show.
The B8 A4 is built on a variant of the Audi Modular Longitudinal Platform,
a platform which is also used in the Audi A5 coupé. Whilst prior A4
chassis were limited in wheelbase due to the relationship between the
engine, transmission and front axle, the MLP allows for a reduced front
overhang, resulting in a greater wheelbase length without the same increase
in overall length. This effectively redistributes the centre of gravity
slightly rearwards, improving handling by better balancing vehicle mass
between the front and rear axles. The estimated static front:rear weight
ratio of the B8 A4 is approximately 55:45, depending on body style and
engine. The relocation of the steering rack in front of the axle also
improves handling over previous A4 platforms.
The B8 A4 has increased in wheelbase by 160 millimetres (6.3 in) and in
length by 117 millimetres (4.6 in) over the prior B7, which has allowed for
increased rear seating legroom. Although the overall dimensions have
increased, the kerb weight has dropped some 10%. The boot (trunk) has also
increased to 480 litres (17.0 cu ft) for the saloon (sedan) version. The A4
Avant will have a maximum capacity of 1,430 L (50.5 cu ft) with the rear
seats folded down.
Reception has been mixed, with praise for the Audi A4's increased size,
giving it best-in-class rear legroom and trunk space in the compact
executive car segment. Its inline-4 2.0 TFSI engine, while efficient
providing plenty of torque, was considered lacking and less refined
compared to 6-cylinder engines of lighter rivals who posted faster acceleration times. However, the Audi
S4 sports sedan has been well-received for its V6 3.0 TFSI engine's power
The B8 A4 was facelifted in early 2012, and is on sale now.
Audi A6 allroad quattro
Normalerweise sind die Offroad-Versionen populärer Oberklasseautos nur
bedingt geländetauglich. Der A6 allroad ist chic, er belehrt uns aber auch
abseits des Asphalts eines besseren.

With the Audi drive select system, the driver can vary the function of the
steering, the air suspension, the gas pedal, the automatic transmission,
the sport differential, the automatic air conditioning, the lighting and
the adaptive cruise control. In Efficiency mode, these systems work as
economically as possible; their function can be very freely configured in

The four-wheel-drive A4 allroad quattro is a chunky looking car that blends
the practicality of the A4 Avant executive estate and the traction of a
4x4. It gets jacked-up suspension and Audi's quattro four-wheel-drive
system. It's only available as an estate, and offers just three engine
choices. Neither BMW nor Mercedes-Benz offer direct competitors, but the
Subaru Legacy Outback and Saab 9-3X offer similar appeal.

2014 Audi RS5 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe! - Head 2 Head Ep. 51
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman sets out to discover which
German hot-rod-personal-luxury-coupe is the best you can get. The 507 Coupe
is the last iteration of the W204 C63. With the exception of the very
limited-run Black Series, it's the best C63 that AMG has ever done. Under
its hood sits a hand-built, 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 good for 507
more do you want? Perhaps something more high-tech, and that's where the
Audi RS5 comes in. The sexy coupe from Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm features
a 4.2-liter V-8 that spits out 450 hp. That¹s less power than the 507
Coupe makes, true, but the Audi also features AWD, a dual-clutch
transmission, bigger wheels and tires, plus a trick torque-vectoring rear
differential. Which one is quicker? Which one is more fun to drive? Which
one is best? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
