2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible First Drive Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible debuted today at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show but we got to drive it before it broke cover along the ocean in California. The new Beetle Convertible carries on a decades long tradition of topless motoring and this newest Beetle plays on the VW Beetles reputation with three special addition cars that include a 50's 60's and 70's theme. Check out this first drive video review as we bring you the new car in all of its editions from the sunny beaches of Southern California.

commercials have changed her life.
Classics Revealed: The Original Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) An Original Volkswagen Beetle Convertible is a
rare car indeed. Well at least rare when it comes to the classic VW Beetle.
While they build over 300,000 of first generation Beetle convertibles, they
built over 21 million of the same basic car but with a hard top. Recently
Volkswagen rolled out the 3rd generation of the iconic Beetle at the LA
Auto Show but at the same time they brought some of the original
convertibles to California. In the exclusive TFLcar video we drive an
original 1979 1500 cc fuel injected model that had only 250 miles on the
clock when we took the wheel. In fact this museum car from Germany is a
time machine straight from the factory floor.
2013 Lexus RX 350 vs Mercedes-Benz GLK vs Infiniti FX37 0-60 $53K Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the best new all-wheel-drive luxury
Crossover that you can buy for $53,000.00? That's the question we wanted to
answer in this TFLcar Mashup review. Is it the new and refreshed 2013 Lexus
RX 350 or is it the new and refreshed 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 4MATIC or
is it the new and refreshed 2013 Infiniti FX37 AWD? The Lexus represents
the most popular vehicle in the segment, while Mercedes-Benz is packed full
of new safety technology and of course the Infiniti is the most sporty of
the three. In this fun TFLcar Mashup review we not only rate all three
Crossovers but we also see which one is fastest from 0-60 MPH.
BMW reveals its future designs with the i8 & i3 concepts debut at the 2012 LA Auto Show

were hit the stage at the 2012 LA Auto show debuting BMW's upcoming

Redesigning retro is a herculean task. You need to change the vehicle
enough to be worth the effort, meanwhile maintaining an iconic retro theme.
If you don't change enough, shoppers won't see a reason to trade in their
old flashback for the new time capsule. Change it too much and you're left
with a caricature. The task is so daunting that few even attempt it. (Just
look at the one-hit-wonders: PT Cruiser, HHR, SSR and Thunderbird.)VW on
the other hand is different. After all they continued to build and sell the
same Beetle with minor tweaks for 65 years straight. If anyone can tweak
retro and convince people they need it, it's VW. Sure enough, 2012 was the
best Beetle sales year since 1973. As a chaser to VW's revived retro-mojo,
the Beetle is now offered sans-top and VW tossed us the keys to a
brown-on-brown model for a week so we could get our 70s on. Can you dig it?
This Beetle, like the old "New Beetle," sells on nostalgia and
cutesy-bubbly good looks. In fact, the first words anyone utters upon
seeing a Beetle are: "aww, its cute." See the problem? How many guys buy
"cute" cars? Recognizing the problem, VW set out to "butch things up" with
the second generation FWD Beetle. The bubbly-fenders, round headlamps and
"smiling" hood lines haven't left but they have been joined by VW's
corporate "Gillette" grille, sharper corners and more "masculine" tail
lamps. (Or so I'm told.) The redesign also adds an incredible 3.5 inches to
the Bug's width and 5 inches to the length. The extra length means the
Bug's side profile is no longer semi-circular, something of a loss for
retro fans. The wider stance and crisper creases do make Herbie look
meaner, but the ginormous fenders make him look fatter as well.
Sorry '70s fans, our chocolate brown Bug didn't come with a built-in CB
radio. Burn! Instead shoppers will need to get hip with the 21st century,
VW style. Base drop-tops get an AM/FM radio, single slot CD player,
Bluetooth speaker phone/audio streaming and VW's USB/iDevice interface
(MDI). Working your way up the ladder, the next stop is the touchscreen
audio system which adds HD Radio, SiriusXM Satellite Radio and am MP3
compatible CD reader (why is there no 1990s edition?).
You won't find a air-cooled engine in this Beetle, this isn't the '50s.
Base Beetles (and the '50s and '70s edition models) use VW's refreshed 2.5L
inline 5-cylinder engine which gets a 20 HP bump to 170 at 5,700RPM while
torque creeps up to 177 lb-ft at 4,250 RPM. VW mates the 5-banger to a
5-speed manual and for an extra $1,100 you can opt for the 6-speed
automatic. If you need more shove, you can opt for VW's ubiquitous 2.0L turbo, good for 200 ponies and 207 lb-ft of
twist. A first for America (as far as I know), VW's topless cruiser can now
be had in oil-burning form with the same 140 HP 2.0L TDI powerplant as the
Jetta. Both 2.0L mills are mated to VW's slick-shifting 6-speed manual
transmission or for $1,100, VW's latest 6-speed dual-clutch DSG
How well the Beetle accelerates and handles is unlikely to matter to
prospective convertible shoppers. I'm not kidding. There isn't a drop top I
can think of that has better performance metrics than its hard-top donor
car, that's just the nature of the beast. Convertibles are all about open
air motoring and style, something thee Beetle, despite all of its flaws,
still has in spades. VW's infotainment options feel like they are stuck in
1990, the lack of power front seats and automatic climate control irk me to
no end, and the 2.0L engine needs a testosterone injection, yet the
Beetle's topless charm is enough for me to overlook its flaws. There is
only one problem: Herbie's still cute. Go figure.
