Watch the 2014 KIA Cadenza Debut at the Detroit Auto Show
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What do you call a Hyundai Azera with a KIA badge? The answer is the 2014 KIA Cadenza. The 2014 KIA Cadenza is KIA's take on the entry level luxury Azera. Powering the Cadenza is a 3.3L direct-injection V6 that produces 293 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that also comes with a Sportmatic manual. There's a ton of technology in the 2014 KIA Cadenza but you can watch this exclusive TFLcar video to get the rest of the important facts.
NEW!!! 2014 LEXUS IS LIVE AT DETROIT AUTOSHOW
Lexus is evidently dead serious about removing some of the starch from its collar, as evidenced by the boldly styled new IS sedan just unveiled here at the Detroit Auto Show. We didn't know what to make of Lexus' entry-level sport sedan when we first saw images of it earlier this week. Dominated by the gaping maw of a spindle grille and flanked by headlamps with Nike swoosh daytime running lamps, the photos showed a distinctive (if not completely cohesive) design. Having now seen the design in the metal, we have to admit it comes together better than it does on screen.
The new model will feature both rear- and all-wheel drive models in both 2.5-liter V6 (IS250) and 3.5-liter V6 (IS350) trims. Lexus also showed an IS300h hybrid model at the reveal, but it is earmarked for Lexus' home market of Japan, along with Europe and other markets. No word yet on why the model probably won't be sold here in North America, but our AutoblogGreen compatriots are looking into it.
Aside from its bold new look front and rear, the IS carries forward a lot of the ideas seen in other newer Lexus models, namely the GS. Hidden beneath the IS' sheetmetal is the multilink rear suspension from the GS, along with its electric power steering setup. The new IS rides atop a three-inch longer wheelbase for better rear seat room, but during our brief time sitting in the car at the press conference melee, it still didn't feel terribly roomy (it rarely does in this class). At least the seatbacks fold 60/40 for the first time for additional utility.
Executives promise that the Fuji Speedway- and Nürburgring-tuned IS350 will make in excess of 300 horsepower. More detailed specifications have yet to be released, but performance figures to be formidable, especially now that the IS receives the eight-speed automatic borrowed from the existing IS F, complete with full torque converter lockup for crisp shifts and manual mode throttle blipping. In addition, F Sport models like the white showcar above includes recalibrated suspension and electric power steering settings to go along with their more aggressive visuals and interior trimmings.
The IS is scheduled to hit dealers in June, at which point you can all make up your minds about Lexus' new styling direction.
2013 Lexus GSF Sport - Sema Show 2011
With plenty of dressed-up tuner cars on display at the Lexus booth at this year's SEMA Show, the real star is the GS350 F-Sport. It might not have any power adders, but with 306-hp and a 0-60 time of 5.7 seconds it doesn't really need any anyway.

2013 Lexus LS 460 F-Sport Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/lexus/ls-460/2013/ For the past 2 decades the full sized LS series sedan has always been the Kingpin of the Lexus line-up. The new LS has come a long way since the first boxy models appeared years ago. This new 2013 Lexus LS 460 F-Sport combines elegance, luxury, style, sport, and aggression into one great package with a price of under $80k.
The LS 460 comes with the spindle style grille that is unique to Lexus. What sets the car apart is the F-Sport package. On the outside the F-Sport adds upper and lower grille pieces to the front bumper, unique F-Sport badging, and 19-inch BBS alloy wheels. Performance wise the F-Sport package will get you larger Brembo brakes to increase the stopping power, a TORSEN limited slip differential, and an Adaptive Variable Air Suspension which can be controlled inside the car. Inside the F-Sport Package for the 2013 Lexus LS 460 adds bolstered front seats that have the F-Sport insignia set in them, black leather interior surfaces trimmed in white, a special shift knob, Alcantara headliner, paddle shifters, and cool aluminum trim pieces.
The 2013 Lexus LS 460 F-Sport is powered by a 4.6 liter V-8 engine that makes 386 horsepower and 367 lb-ft. of torque. The 8-speed automatic transmission features cool paddle shifters mounted to the steering wheel. Fuel economy for this full size luxury car is 16 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway. There is an AWD model but both power and fuel economy drop.
On the inside the F-Sport touches are evident with the badging on the steering wheel and seats. Speaking of seats these are some of the most comfortable on the market which is what you should come to expect from Lexus. The gauges on the dashboard are very attractive and the LS 460 comes packed with technology, gadgets, and safety features. The overall layout of the cabin is nice and spacious moving the Lexus brand forward and setting a new measuring stick.

2013 Lexus ES vs GS 0-60 MPH Mashup Review: What's the best new Lexus sedan?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Here's an interesting question. What is the best new Lexus Sedan? Is it the 2013 Lexus ES300h or is it the 2013 Lexus AWD GS350? The new Lexus ES300h is of course a large 200 horsepower hybrid 4-door Lexus sedan that gets an amazing 40 MPG combined. While the new 2013 Lexus AWD GS350 is also a large 4-door Lexus sedan but with All-wheel-drive and of course a very powerful 3.5L V6 that puts out 306 HP. In another fun and exclusive TFLcar Mashup review we try to find out which of these very similar Lexus sedan's is the better car. It is a matchup of power versus fuel economy or perhaps another way to look at it might be brown versus technology.
2014 Infiniti Q50 First Look - '13 Detroit Auto Show
Meet the all-new 2014 Infiniti Q50, the replacement for the second generation G37. As the first vehicle to bear the new nomenclature, it should rightfully take the G's spot in the highly competitive compact sport sedan segment; but the real question is: will it take the spot as the number one in the segment?
