Digital editor Andy Stoy takes the 2013 Winnebago Via motorhome for a spin.
Yes, it costs about the same and gets comparable gas mileage as the Nissan
GTR. But this is an RV and it also has a bed, kitchen and bathroom.
2013 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S rated at 542 hp - Autoweek TV with Natalie Neff
Also in this episode: Chevy orders more Sparks to meet rising demand, and
Dale Earnhardt Jr. takes a break to nurse a concussion.
-- Porsche reveals the most powerful Cayenne yet.
-- Chevy calls for more Sparks.
-- And Dale Junior is going to take a two-week break.
I'm Natalie, wrapping up another week with a hot-octane episode of Autoweek
TV. Let's light the tires and see what's making news:
Porsche has unveiled a new version of the Cayenne, the turbo S. It gets a formal debut at the Los Angeles
auto show in late November and goes on sale next March. The new Cayenne
runs a lightly modified version of the turbo's 4.8-liter V8, the same engine used by the
Panamera turbo S.
Power climbs to about 542 hp, making the turbo S the most powerful Cayenne model yet.
Torque is rated at 553 lb-ft. The all-wheel drive Cayenne turbo S uses an air suspension and Porsche's
active-damping control, along with hydraulically operated roll bars to
minimize body roll.
It's another way you can really haul the cargo.
Details on the Porsche Cayenne turbo S:
Chevy needs more Sparks. GM has upped its order for the minicar from the
assembly plant in South Korea after a stronger than expected start to
sales. Chevy launched the Spark in 18 metro markets last summer. During the
first two months, sales totaled 6,300 units and dealers have been asking
for more cars.
For more on the Spark:
Finally, Dale Earnhardt Jr. is taking a couple of weeks off from NASCAR
racing. Junior was caught up in the "big one" that happened on the last lap
of last weekend's Sprint Cup race at Talladega and got his bell rung.
He says he became disoriented as the car spun around, although he was able
to drive it back to the garage. But after having some severe headaches,
doctors say the driver has a concussion. He also sustained a concussion
from a crash in Kansas in August.
Junior hopes to return for the Martinsville race at the end of this month.
Until then market: Regan Smith will drive is car.
Details on Dale Jr.'s concussion:
That's the news for this week. It's a great weekend for seeing the fall
colors, football tailgating and some apple cider and donuts -- so get out
there and enjoy the drive.
We'll see you on Monday.
The Acura ZDX is dead - Autoweek TV with Greg Migliore
-- The Acura ZDX is dead,
-- Honda is thinking about a return to Formula One,
-- what is the most popular car color for 2012?
The Acura ZDX is dead, Honda is thinking about a return to Formula One, and
what is the most popular car color for 2012? Stick around for that.
I'm Greg Migliore. This is Autoweek TV for Thursday.
Acura confirmed has confirmed it will discontinue the ZDX crossover after
the 2013 model year. The five-door crossover struggled to find a niche in
the crowded U.S. market. The ZDX had its best year in 2010. Acura is
raising the price to about $52,000 this year for its final run, and also
adding some extra options.
Honda is at least considering returning to Formula One, where it has been
absent since 2008. Autocar reports Honda is taking a close look at the
1.6-liter turbo engines specifications
set to be used in F1 in 2014. For now, Honda plans to runs a 1.6-liter
engine in the World Touring Car championship for the final races of 2012.
And what is the most popular car color in America? Drum roll please: it's
white, followed by silver, followed by black. That's according to paint
experts PPG, which compiles the annual results. Traditionally, blander
colors tend to top the list thanks to their widespread appeal.
That's it for today. Just a reminder, the shopautoweek.com iPad app is live
at the iTunes store to help you out with all of your fall car shopping
needs. It's free, and it's useful whether you want a white, silver, grey or
here's a crazy thought red, car.

2013 Honda Accord first drive from Consumer Reports
Redesigned for 2013, the Honda Accord manages to be shorter, roomier, and

in an extremely competitive family sedan market. Read our blog post for

2013 Honda Accord Sedan Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/honda/accord/2013/ The mid-sized sedan segment is
by far the most competitive segment in the entire automotive industry.
Practically every manufacturer has a vehicle targeting this segment. For
years the Accord was at the top of the heap winning award after award, year
after year. But the Accord quickly got stale and with the new Ford Fusion,
Nissan Altima, and Toyota Camry redesigns; the Accord was losing ground
quickly. Now we have a new measuring stick with the all new redesigned 2013
Honda Accord Sedan. The Accord is one of the safest bets in America today.
The base price is $21,680; the car drives great, has a nice resale value,
and offers wonderful reliability.
Most enthusiasts and automotive journalist would cringe at the thought of
having to test drive yet another family sedan. But the reality is that this
is still the most popular segment of car in America today. The Camry and
Accord combined sell almost a million cars per year. Honda has basically
set the standard with the Accord for over 30 years. This nameplate has been
around since the 1970's and is now in its 9th generation and the Accord
keeps on getting better. What's unusual about the new 2013 Honda Accord is
that it has actually gotten shorter while interior room has increased and
the cargo room is larger, which is a great testament to Honda Engineers.
Styling is dramatically improved with the nice shoulder lines and shorter
overhangs. Basically the car looks more modern and up to date. But it is
not just about styling with the new Accord Sedan. Under the hood is a brand
new engine and CVT transmission. Not to be outdone by Mazda's SkyActiv
engine technology, Honda has released their own line called Earth Dreams
Technology. The new engine is very efficient and powerful. The motor is a
2.4 liter 4-cylinder that makes 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft. of
torque. The CVT transmission helps the Accord to get fuel economy ratings
of 27 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway. The Accord comes in
several trim levels that include the: Base LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and the top
of the line Touring model. If you want to get a 4-cylinder engine, that
comes standard on the 3 lower trims. When you move up to the more expensive
trims the V-6 engine becomes optional/standard.
Shoppers of mid-sized sedans are looking for rear legroom space. Thankfully
the Accord has plenty of it including a lot of rear headroom too. The
Accord's interior has been completely redesigned. You have an all new
instrument panel, center stack, and gauges. Everything works really well.
The speedometer looks like a high-tech Swiss watch, the steering wheel is
nice and compact, and the controls are great. Another bonus is the fact
that every 2013 Honda Accord comes with and 8-inch infotainment screen
standard as well as a rear backup camera. The Accord also comes with
Honda's new lane-watch safety system.

2013 Honda Accord Sport: CVT vs 6 Speed Manual 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Honda Accord Sport with the 189 HP 2.4L
engine can be purchased with two transmission options. You can get the new
Honda Accord with a CVT automatic transmission with paddle shifters or you
can opt for the more traditional 6 speed tranny that you have to row
yourself. In another fun and informative TFLcar mile high 0-60 MPH mashup
review we test the car with the same engine but pit the CVT automatic
against the manual 6 Speed transmission. So which of these two options is
the faster way to go. You'll have

2013 Honda Accord Sedan, Coupe, and Plug-In Hybrid Preview Car Video with Sage Marie
http://www.autobytel.com/honda/accord/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Honda Accord
focuses on efficient packaging. That is something the new Accord does
really well. This 2013 model gets smaller on the outside and bigger on the
inside. There is more interior space for occupant comfort as well as better
visibility all around. The 2013 Honda Accord has a base price of $21, 680.
On the outside, the Accord received all new styling. The exterior is more
aggressive, luxurious, and bolder. Up front the Accord is equipped with LED
daytime running lights and tail lights with the top trim (Touring) getting
full LED headlights. These features are typically associated with luxury
cars but they are available here on a main stream sedan. On the inside you
will notice a lot or rich and premium materials. The trim is nicely crafted
and the materials are soft to the touch.
Powertrain wise, the 2013 Honda Accord has a diverse portfolio of
powertrain options tat include a: 4-cylinder engine, V-6 engine, 6-speed
automatic, 6-speed manual, and a CVT. The 2.4 liter engine makes 185 horsepower and 181
lb-ft. of torque while managing 27 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the
highway with the CVT. The larger 3.5 liter V-6 engine makes 278 horsepower and 252 lb-ft. of
torque while getting 21 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway.
The 2013 Honda Accord is also offered as a coupe which speaks to
enthusiasts and style oriented car buyers. The car is a real performer when
equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission and V-6 engine.
The sneak peak on the all new electric plugin-hybrid gives us a first look
as this exciting new model. This car is differentiated from the regular
Accord via a unique front and rear facia as well as unique wheels. This
Accord Hybrid will have the ability to run on electricity alone for 10-15
miles. The mileage is expected to be 100 MPGe.
