Super Bowl Advertising: the Good, the Bad and the Ego - Autoline After Hours 181
On Sunday all eyes--well, a lot of eyes--will be on the action going down in New Orleans, but while the 49ers and Ravens are at each others' throats, another competition will be playing out. That's because all of those aforementioned eyes will be there for the taking and there is nothing else that matches the advertising spectacle that is the Super Bowl. Thus, automakers from around the world will be embroiled in a battle of corporate egos. As luck would have it, many of these ads have already been, *ahem*, "leaked" so the AAH panel will be doing a roundup of what's on the docket, so far. Joining us to offer an inside perspective on this high-stakes competition is Michael Sprague, the Executive Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Kia Motors America. Kia has two ads in the queue for the big game, and we'll get to preview at least one of them. Joining John McElroy in studio to talk about all things Super Bowl, plus the news of the week, is Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist, and David Kiley from AOL Autos.

Inside the 2013 Ford C-MAX Energi - Autoline After Hours 183
Just as you could get the Ford Model T in any color, as long as it was black, when the company brought the C-MAX stateside, it declared you could get any powertrain, as long as it was a hybrid. This week the C-MAX Energi rolls into the Autoline studio with John Davis, Chief Program Engineer, in tow. We'll be asking him all about the car and about what challenges Ford faces in trying to sell a plug-in. We'll also want to know why the C-MAX struggles, in testing, to meet the fuel economy ratings on the EPA label. And, yes, we will also get to the top news of the week. GM earnings are disappointing; 2013 just may be the year of the diesel as Ram and Subaru both announce new entries; and Federal Mogul says goodbye to spark plugs while Chevrolet says hello to shape memory alloys. Joining John McElroy in studio to talk about all that and much more, is Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist, and Todd Lassa from Automobile. Get more video everyday at http://autoline.tv

2014 Audi A7 TDI Test Drive & Diesel Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/audi/a7/2014/?id=32972 New for 2014 is a diesel powered A7. The Audi A7 is a big, beautiful, spacious sports sedan with an ACE in the hole; that being the wonderful fuel economy. The TDI power plant can manage 24 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway. That might not sound like a lot, but consider this is a full-sized luxury car getting the same fuel economy as a tiny compact. The price for the A7 TDI is $66,900. The Audi A7 is drop dead gorgeous thanks to the sleek hatchback design. But the car is not just good to look at; the A7 excels in virtually every other aspect. Under the hood is a 3.0 liter turbocharged V-6 diesel engine that makes 240 horsepower and 428 lb-ft. of torque. Believe it or not the TDI model only weighs 66 lbs. more than the regular gas model. Inside the Audi A7 the interior is beautiful. The most important thing about a luxury car's interior is the ability to make the owner feel important like they have arrived; and the A7 does just that. Driving the diesel is different. It takes a few seconds for the turbo to build power. The driving experience is pure bliss. This is a proper sports sedan with an ACE in the hole. That would be the great fuel economy. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/?id=32972 Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel





Cruze Diesel Fuel Economy Report - 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Test Drive & Car Video Review
Will the champ be defeated? The 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel is finally here. Now America is discovering what Europeans have known for a long time; diesel powered cars get wonderful fuel economy. The Volkswagen Jetta TDI has been the reigning champ for over a decade when it comes to fuel efficient diesel powered cars. Now though, the Cruze Diesel is on the scene with more MPG on the highway, more torque, and a lower price tag. The 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel has a base price of $24,885. Only time will tell if the Cruze can displace the Jetta TDI, let's see how this newcomer stacks up. Check out more on the Cruze Diesel at Autobytel http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/cruze/2014/diesel/?id=32972 It's been quite awhile since and American Car Company offered a diesel powered sedan. So is the 2014 Chevy Cruze turbo Diesel worth the wait? You better believe it! GM has finally brought to market a worthy competitor to the Volkswagen Jetta TDI. Let's first compare the Cruze Diesel to its Cruze Eco bother which also gets excellent fuel economy figures. The Cruze tops the Eco model in a couple of different ways. The thrifty Cruze Eco is powered by a 1.4 liter turbocharged engine running regular gas. Power output is 136 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. But the Cruze Diesel also has turbo power but gets a larger 2.0 liter engine. Thus power is higher at 151 horsepower and get this; 264 lb-ft of torque. The Diesel also trumps in the fuel economy department with a rating of 27 MPG in the city and 46 MPG on the highway. Does it sound different? Of course it's a diesel. Some people like the sound, others hate it, and still others are not bothered at all. The more conservative you drive the Cruze Diesel the better fuel economy figures you can expect. That's the beauty of diesel engines; you get more miles to the gallon and tons of torque which gets you moving. Off the line the car is a little sluggish; the turbo has to spool up. Once you are on a roll though, the torque kicks in pretty early and plenty of power is on tap. The car could benefit from a Manual Gearbox or a Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission. Price wise the 2014 Cruze Diesel does cost about $5k more than the Eco model: $24885 vs. $19,835. But that increased price not only includes the price of diesel technology, but some great features and options. The leather interior gives the Cruze a more upscale feel and the front seats are heated. The Chevy MyLink infotainment Center is standard with all the Bluetooth and digital audio goodies including Pandora and Stitcher integration. The rest of the interior is very good too with a fair amount of room and conveniences like well placed cup holders and power outlets. Out back the spare tire has been replaced with a diesel fluid emissions tank. Don't worry though because a tire refill pump is included. The trunk does have 13.3 cubic feet of space and the rear seat features a 60/40 fold split seat. The 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel does benefit from active grill shutters up front and an aero kit and wing out back. But it's the under car belly pans that help air flow and reduce the cars drag coefficient. The Cruze Diesel is made for highway cruising with a nice sized gas tank at 15.6 gallons that allows for an enormous driving range of over 700 miles.
