2012 Porsche Panamera Test Drive & Luxury Sports Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/porsche/panamera/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Porsche Panamera is an interesting combination of automotive delicacies. The Panamera is one part sports car, one part luxury car, one part hatchback, and one part sedan. Over the past decade, Porsche has created a few unique vehicles to target a broad range of car buyers. The Boxster is aimed at the entry level sports car enthusiast while the Cayenne is aimed at those looking for a quick SUV. But the Panamera offers 911 performance with a usable back seat. The 2012 Porsche Panamera can range from $75,200 for the base model all the way to $173,200 for the top of the line turbo S model.
The vehicle tested in this video is the base model Panamera 4 (AWD). It is powered by a lightweight and direct injected 3.6 liter V-6 engine that makes 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is the famous PDK twin-cutch 7-speed unit that shifts lighting quick. Fuel economy on the 2012 Porsche Panamera is 18 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway thanks in part to an auto start/stop system which shuts down the engine while the car is sitting idle. Sixty MPH flies by in 5.8 seconds and the Panamera 4 has a top speed of 159 MPH. The Panamera handles incredibly well thanks to the Porsche Traction Management system. The AWD monitors driving situations and can adjust power as need. The Panamera is equipped with Anti-Slip Regulation and Automatic Brake Differential.
Porsche Active Suspension Management is optional on the Panamera 4. This system provides electronic dampening at all 4 corners of the car thus reducing body roll and increasing handling. The system will also tighten up the setting based on the selection of modes: Comfort, Sport, and Sport Plus. The rims are 18-inch alloys wrapped in sticky rubber. The 2012 Porsche Panamera comes with huge 360 mm brakes up front and 330 mm brakes out back. The calipers are six-piston units. Safety wise besides all the electronic computer controlled systems, the Panamera 4 features a full compliment of 2-stage airbags for both the front and rear passengers.
With the rear seats up the Panamera has a luggage compartment with over 15 cubic feet of storage space. But with he seats down the hatchback design allows for over 44 cubic feet of cargo room which is a large amount for this segment. And believe it or not the 2012 Porsche Panamera can tow up to 4850 lbs. The Panamera is a very efficient and powerful sports car that offers a high level of luxury and sophistication while being able to transport 4 passengers in style.

times. And this new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover looks as amazing as ever.

that include: Luxury, Sustainability, Relevant Functionality and
Desirability. Underneath the all the luxury lives the soul of one of the
most capable off-road vehicles ever produced for the mass car market. But
with the high price tag many of these luxury SUVs will never step foot off
the pavement. The base price on a new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover is
$82,650 with the top of the line Supercharged Plus model with the
Autobiography Package starting at $130,100.

that time this vehicle has become the ultimate luxury SUV. This new 4th
generation Range Rover is bold, beautiful, and powerful. This high end
vehicle drives so well you would be hard pressed to find anything wrong
with it. The Range Rover offers a great powerplant, luxurious ride, and all
the features and options you would expect from the leader in luxury SUVs.
The 2013 Range Rover has been completely redesigned inside and out. For
starters they really simplified the instrument panel. Now there are a lot
fewer buttons and the infotainment system is much more intuitive. The

torque through an 8-speed automatic. Step up to the Supercharged models and
power jumps to 510 horsepower and 461 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy is 14 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway. Land

exciting fact is that the weight has been reduced by 700 pounds. Because of
this you will be getting better fuel economy and better performance.
The Terrain Response System is an all new system for the Range Rover and
has several modes of operation. You can choose between a Snow/Gravel
setting, a Mud and Ruts setting, a Sand setting, and the most aggressive
off-road setting is the Rock Crawl Mode. There is no question the 2013
Range Rover is one of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced
SUVs on the market.
There are 4 different trims levels when it comes to the 2013 Land Rover
Range Rover. Choose from the Base model, the HSE model, the Supercharged
model, and the Autobiography model. The latter model swaps out the seating
for 5 and replaces the rear bench seat with 2 Captain's Chairs for maximum
comfort. The Autobiography model is the most luxurious SUV you can buy.
Land Rover has really done a great job with this model. The 2013 Range
Rover is just a brilliant vehicle. If you can afford this luxury SUV do
yourself a favor and go buy one.

2013 BMW 640i Gran Coupe Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/bmw/640-gran-coupe/2013/?id=32972 For year the
BMW 6-series came in 2 different body styles: a coupe and a convertible.
But now with the other luxury car manufacturers offering 4-door luxury
coupe models, BMW has jumped on the bandwagon making sure not to miss out
on any opportunities. The 2013 BMW 640i Gran Coupe is poised to take on the
Audi A7, Porsche Panamera, and the Mercedes-Benz CLS. The Gran Coupe
essentially takes the 6-series 2-door coupe body, moves the B-Pillar
forward, and adds 2 more doors. The 2013 BMW 640i Gran Coupe is appropriate
for someone who really wants a 2-door coupe but occasionally needs room for
4 passengers. The base price on the Gran Coupe is $76,000.
The 2013 BMW 640i is powered by a turbocharged 3.0 liter inline 6-cylinder engine
that makes 315 horsepower and 332 lb-ft. of
torque. The 8-speed automatic transmission is very responsive and quick.
There are paddle shifters located on the steering wheel for those who like
a more involved driving role. The BMW 640i Gran Coupe has a couple of
different driving modes from Sport+ which enhances performance, to Comfort
which softens up the suspension and ride, to ECO mode which targets the
best fuel economy possible.
The exterior of the 2013 BMW 640i Gran Coupe is comprised of a very sleek
profile and a wide stance. The proportions of this luxury car are very
elegant and sporty at the same time. The paint is The Gran Coupe can be
ordered with BMW's xDrive all wheel drive system. With the BMW Individual
Package you can get a couple of premium colors including the Frozen Bronze
Metallic as seen here. Interior space is less than a larger sedan but the
Gran Coupe is still a very comfortable and upscale car. The ergonomics are
great and the rear can seat 3 people if necessary. As with any other BMW,
the materials used on the interior are high quality.
The 2013 BMW 640i is the best of both worlds with its 2-door styling and

the 6-Series. The coupe looks great on the outside and is packed with lots

2013 Ford Flex EcoBoost Car Video & Crossover Review
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/flex/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Ford Flex is a
crossover vehicle that has won the hearts of many owners out there. Part
car, part van, and part station wagon; the Flex is full of surprises. Can
any other station wagon haul seven people and all their gear with over 365
are 3 different trim levels starting with the SE which costs $30,885, the
SEL which costs $33,225, up to the Limited EcoBoost AWD which costs $43,850.
There is quite a big gap there but the 3 different trims come in either FWD
or AWD configurations. The SE and SEL are powered by a 3.5 Liter V-6 that
pushes 285 horsepower while getting 18
MPG in the city and 25MPG on the highway. Step up to the twin-turbocharged V-6 EcoBoost engine with AWD will cost you a few
miles per gallon (16 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway), but you
get 365 horsepower
and 350 lb-ft. of torque in return.
The 3rd row seating features a 50/50 split folding bench. The 2013 Ford
Flex is quite versatile and there is a ton of cargo room with over 80 cubic
feet of storage space. The doors are large enough to make entering and
exiting the vehicle a breeze. There is a lot of legroom for adults. Also
the Flex can be purchased with all the Ford technology available like Voice
Activated Navigation to the SYNC in-car connectivity system.
On the outside there is no mistaking the 2013 Ford Flex with any old
crossover or station wagon. The styling is bold and Ford took some risks
with the interesting grille up front, chrome accents, and the grooved door
panels that run down the side of the Flex. The two-tone paint gives the
Flex a modern throw-back feel. The large 20-inch aluminum wheels make a
visual statement. The 2013 Ford Flex is definitely one of the coolest
crossover cruisers out there.

2013 Mercedes-Benz SL550 Test Drive & Luxury Convertible Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mercedes-benz/sl-class/2013/?id=32972 The 2013
Mercedes-Benz SL550 has been completely redesigned and marks the 6th
generation of the SL-Class. The SL550 is a roadster which is in essence a
two seat convertible. The roof is 13 lbs. lighter than the previous model
thanks to the use of lightweight magnesium materials. The 2013 Mercedes
SL550 has an MSRP price of $103,650.
The SL550 is powered by a twin turbo 4.6
liter V-8 engine that produces 429 horsepower and 516 lb-ft. of
torque. The 7-speed automatic transmission features wheel mounted paddle
shifters as well as 3 distinct driving modes: ECO, Sport, and Manual.
Combined with the start-stop system the 2013 Mercedes SL550 has a fuel
economy rating of 16 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway which is
better than the previous model.
The new 2013 Mercedes SL-Class features an all aluminum body that reduces
the weight by over 300 lbs. compared to the outbound model. This weight
reduction alone provides a huge Boost in performance. In fact with the twin-turbo V-8 engine the SL550 can rocket from
0-60 MPH in 4.5 seconds. That figure is pure super car territory. The
exterior still holds the shape that made the SL-Class famous over 60 years
ago but with modern lines. The Xenon headlights feature LED running lights
which are a must for any self-respecting luxury car. The 19-inch alloy AMG
wheels give the 2013 Mercedes SL550 a very aggressive look.
The suspension features a ton of great technology that offers the most
luxurious yet sporty ride. The active dampening shocks at each wheel adjust
the dampening rate every 10 milliseconds. The result is a smooth ride with
razor sharp handling. The Active Body Control System is tasked with
providing a balanced ride. The body roll is limited when cornering and the
SL550's ride height is reduced as speeds increase.
The 2013 Mercedes SL-Class is a convertible first and foremost. The SL550
features a retractable hardtop that can open or close in less than 15
seconds. MAGIC SKY CONTROL is a trick feature that with the press of a
button turns the roof from clear to opaque or vice versa. Integrated into
the headrests are vents that can provide a cool blast of air on a hot sunny
day. The AIRSCARF system does the opposite. Beneath each head rest vents
deliver a blast of warm air so you can keep the top down even in the fall
The 2013 Mercedes SL550 is one of the best convertible roadsters on the
market today. With a powerful yet efficient 400+ horsepower engine and a
wonderfully automatic retractable hardtop; the Mercedes has tons of

Porsche Panamera S Hybrid review - Auto Express
It's a car that's broken new ground in more ways than one. Not only is the
Porsche Panamera the firm's first four-door grand tourer, but now, with the
introduction of the Panamera S Hybrid, it's also the most fuel-efficient
model the firm has ever produced.
Capable of 41.5mpg and emitting only 159g/km of CO2, this Panamera is --
unbelievably -- more economical and cleaner than a VW Passat 1.8 TSI
petrol. Yet it still delivers the kind of performance you'd expect from a
Porsche. It can sprint from 0-62mph in only six seconds, while top speed is
