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 C70 Inscription Polestar Test Drive & Convertible Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/volvo/c70/2012/ The 2012 Volvo C70 is the only convertible in the auto manufacturer's line-up. While the Swedish automaker Volvo is best known for creating safe cars, one thing they have shown with the 2012 Volvo C70 hard top convertible is that the Scandinavians also know how to have fun. The C70 blends the styling of a two door coupe with the experience of an open air sports car aimed at those individuals that are looking for more than mere transportation and expect a certain level of luxury and elegance from their new purchase. The C70 is powered by a 2.5 Liter turbocharged five cylinder engine that produces 227 HP and 236 lb-ft of torque in stock trim and returns an EPA estimated 18 MPG around town and as much as 28 MPG on the highway starting at $40,450. However Volvo also offers an Inscription model, starting at $44,350, that upgrades not only the Volvo's output but also adds to the look and feel of the luxury drop top. Starting off with a simple ECU retune, the Swedish racers over at Polestar were able to extract a total of 250 HP and 273 lb-ft of torque from the C70 without voiding the warranty or burning any extra MPG. On the outside the C70 Inscription wears a set of 18 inch high gloss wheels to match the brilliant new front grill and receives a set of LED daytime running lights. On the inside, occupants are greeted with a leather wrapped dash and matching instrument panel complete with unique interior accent stitching as well as a sport steering wheel with aluminum insert and a pair of sport pedals to finish off the C70's transformation.

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.
