2012 Scion xD Test Drive and Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/scion/xd/2012/ The 2012 Scion xD is a car that has been marketed to the younger generation since its inception. But the xD is more than just a sub-compact teenager car. Instead the Scion xD is affordably priced, it gets solid fuel economy, it looks good, and comes packed with a ton of standard features and options; making it an appealing vehicle for a broad spectrum of car buyers. And the best part if the 2012 Scion xD only costs $15,345. The best thing about the Scion line-up is that all the vehicles they make are pretty hip and sporty. They all drive well and get excellent fuel economy. The second best thing about the Scion brand is that they are a no non-sense company. Meaning they offer one trim level per vehicle. So the Honda Accord or Ford F-150 for instance can have up to 30 different trim levels. Not so with the 2012 Scion xD. There is one model available with either a manual or automatic transmission. From there you can add on tons of options for the engine, suspension, interior, and exterior. Toyota Racing Development (TRD) makes tons of parts for the Scion xD which can be ordered directly through the dealership. Want a cool performance Exhaust or sport air filter? TRD makes those. Want to lower your ride and add stiffer suspension components? No problem as those can be bought and installed from any Scion dealership. The options for exterior, interior, and performance modifications are numerous. In the end you can have a very unique automobile right from the factory. The 2012 Scion xB is powered by a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 128 horsepower and 125 lb-ft. of torque. Not a whole lot but this is a sub-compact car and it does not take much to get it going. Also remember the xD is quite inexpensive so you cannot expect to have a high powered motor. The small engine makes for great fuel economy with the 2012 Scion xD netting 27 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway. The Scion xD comes standard with many great features like air conditioning, power everything, cruise control, keyless entry, a Pioneer audio system, Bluetooth, and HD radio. The 2012 Scion xD is also very safe getting top ratings in 12 of the 13 IIHS categories.

2012 Volvo S60 Test Drive & Luxury Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/volvo/s60/2012/ The 2012 Volvo S60 has the most powerful engine Volvo has ever had in a sedan. The turbocharged 3.0 liter inline-6 produces 325 horsepower and 354 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy for this engine is 18 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway. There is also a smaller less powerful 2.5 liter 5-cylinder that makes 250 horsepower and 256 lb-ft of torque. Less power and a smaller engine means better fuel economy and the 2.5 liter gets 20 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway. Prices range from $31,150 to $42,950. From a design standpoint Volvo has really stepped up their game. The 2012 Volvo S60 has everything in its arsenal to compete with other entry level luxury sedans. There are a bunch of great safety features that come standard on the S60. On the inside the Volvo keeps it simple and comfortable. But it's the monster engine that is the best part of the new 2012 S60 luxury sedan.

2012 Toyota Prius Test Drive & Hybrid Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/prius/2012/?id=32972 There is really only one car that comes to mind when the subject of hybrid cars comes up. The Toyota Prius was the car that changed the game when it came to fuel economy. The design of the 2012 Toyota Prius is meant to help the car slip through the air as easily as possible. Less drag directly results in better fuel economy which is why many hybrid vehicles on the road today have the same wedge shape as the Toyota Prius. In fact the 0.25 drag coefficient on the 2012 Prius is one of the lowest figures of any mainstream vehicle. Toyota engineers have spent countless hours in the wind tunnel so that you can go further with less fuel. The base model Prius starts at $23,015 with the top of the line model going for just under $30,000. The 2012 Toyota Prius is powered by Toyota's famous Hybrid Synergy Drive System which is comprised of a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine and an electric motor. The Atkinson Cycle engine is good for 98 horsepower and the added electric motor makes and additional 36 HP bringing the total power on the 2012 Toyota Prius up to 134 horsepower. There is a Continuously Variable Transmission that helps in the fuel economy department. The Prius also has a start-stop system and can run on electric power alone up to 15 MPH. These fuel saving tactics combined with the low drag coefficient and efficient engine allow the 2012 Toyota Prius Hybrid to get 51 MPG in the city and 48 MPG on the highway. You know what you are getting into when you get behind the wheel of a Toyota Prius. You are going to have full electric operation at low speeds, a little bit of noise once the gas engine is engaged, and an overall smooth driving experience. There is nothing sporty or exciting about driving the 2012 Toyota Prius. The main reason you buy one of these hybrids is for the outstanding fuel economy and the Prius delivers. And if you are looking at buying a hybrid vehicle the Toyota Prius is still the king.

New Volvos Intense Driving Tests
Hällered, a fenced-in 7 million m² area an hour away from Gothenburg, Sweden, is Volvo Cars main testing facility. The track stretches 26 km, consisting of 15 different test tracks designed to simulate every type of road surface and weather condition a car can be subjected to during its long life time, including a fully-equipped public highway within the area. The tests are carefully planned and computer monitored. In just a few months, cars are aged as much as during the entire anticipated lifetime of the vehicles in normal traffic, thanks to test drivers working around the clock. The car's active safety system is also tested at the facility. A special rig has been developed just to test the Pedestrian Detection system that should detect pedestrians and apply the brakes if the driver does not react in time.

Let's Talk Cars - 2012 Volvo C30 R Design Review Test Drive
Miami's Community Newspapers Presents "Let's Talk Cars" Featuring automotive editor, Ron Beasley. The Volvo C30 is a two-door hatchback that's sporty, functional and has a lot to offer in the way of standard equipment. The C30 has been around since 2007 and shares most of its mechanicals with the Volvo S40 sedan. But it has less standard equipment, making it Volvo's lowest priced vehicle. The C30 was restyled last year with a new front fascia, new fenders, a new honeycomb grille and new trapezoidal headlights. So there is no design change for 2012. Two new trim levels have been added to complement the base T5 and R-Design models - Premier Plus and Platinum. Premier Plus adds a power glass sunroof, power driver and passenger seats and LED daytime running lights. Platinum adds more technology, including all the features of Premier Plus, and a 10-speaker, 650-watt Volvo Premium Sound System with Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound, a navigation system with real time traffic and Sirius/XM satellite radio. With its compact size, smart design and peppy turbocharged five-cylinder engine, the Volvo C30 really is run to drive. With its relatively wide front and rear tracks and long wheelbase, it has exceptionally stable driving characteristics. Under the hood, there's a 227 HP 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine. It's mated to either a standard six-speed manual transmission or a five-speed geartronic automatic with the auto-stick function. The front-wheel drive C30 gets pretty good fuel economy at 21 miles per gallon around town and 30 MPG on the highway. The C30 T5 comes standard with a healthy roster of standard equipment, including dynamic stability and traction control, Volvo's side impact protection system and whiplash protection seating system, T-Tec upholstery, a leather gearshift knob with aluminum inlay, cruise control, a high performance 160-watt audio system, iPod/USB and auxiliary inputs, High Definition radio, and Bluetooth integrated interface. Other enhancements for all c30s include a standard center armrest for rear seat passengers and standard security alarm. A new exterior color has been added -- Caspian blue metallic. Pricing on the Volvo C30 T5 ranges from $24,950 to $31,850. -Ron Beasley Filmed by Max Princiotta and Spencer Thompson, edited by Max Princiotta. Please contact us for more information.
