http://www.autobytel.com/volvo/c30/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Volvo C30 coupe is a lot of fun to drive. Volvo is known for being one of the world's safest car manufacturer. Most of their line-up consists of sedans and crossover utility vehicles and the C30 is the only coupe in their line-up of vehicles. The 2012 Volvo C30 has a base price of $24,950 with the top of the line R-Design Platinum costing $31,850. But you can add a factory performance upgrade called the Polestar package for under $2000 that will Boost performance significantly. Volvo did not hold back when it came to powering the C30. Under the hood live a turbocharged 2.5 liter inline 5-cylinder engine that makes 227 horsepower and 236 lb-ft. of torque. Transmission options are a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic. Fuel economy is pretty good for a high performance engine as the 2012 Volvo C30 nets 21 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway. The vehicle featured in this car review video has the $1295 Polestar Performance Package equipped. This package is essential an engine tuner software that adds 23 HP and 37 lb-ft. of torque without sacrificing fuel economy. Also the Polestar Package will not void the factory warranty. From a styling stand-point the 2012 Volvo C30 really stands apart from the crowd. This coupe appeals to a broad range of car buyers: men and women both young and old. When you opt for the 6-speed manual transmission the fun factor really goes through the roof. On the inside the interior has a very simple Scandinavian look and feel to it. You can even opt for a 650 watt premium sound system. The Volvo C30 is packed with tons of safety features like Dynamic Stability Control, Traction Control, and a Whiplash Protection System. In fact the 2012 Volvo C30 was named a Top Safety Pick for 2012 by the IIHS.

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.

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.

2012 Toyota Avalon Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/avalon/2012/ The full sized Toyota Avalon has not seen a redesign since 2005. Sure there have been a few revisions, updates, and upgrades made along the way; but it wasn't until 2011 that the Avalon received an exterior styling change. But the Avalon has always stressed luxury and comfort at an affordable price. Toyota has practically used all they have learned over the past few decades to create a car that is on par with many of Germany's finest luxury vehicles. And the Avalon was named a Top Safety Pick for 2012 by the IIHS. The base price for the 2012 Toyota Avalon is $33,195. On the inside the 2012 Toyota Avalon is on par with many more expensive luxury cars. The amount of legroom and interior volume is great. Over 40 inches of rear leg room. The Avalon features reclining seats for a more comfortable ride. Up front the plush seat are heated and ventilated for your comfort. The cabin is very quiet and the suspension is perfectly suited for a more luxurious smooth ride. There is a ton of technology loaded into the Avalon like Bluetooth streaming audio, a 12-speaker audio system, rain sensing windshield wipers, a rearview backup camera. The DVD Navigation system is voice activated too and can respond to 100 commands. The 2012 Toyota Avalon is powered by a 3.5 liter V-6 engine with VVT-I which helps aid in performance as well as fuel economy. The Avalon puts out 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft. of torque through a 6-speed automatic transmission. Fuel Economy figures are 19 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway. Even though the current 3rd generation Toyota Avalon has not been refreshed in a few years, the full sized pseudo luxury car has been updated year after year with many great improvements and enhancements. The interior is roomy and extra comfortable. All in all the just over $31,000 price point means you will get luxury quality at an affordable price.

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.

Like us on Facebook @ http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline Senior Editor Christian Rosario takes us on a tour of this beautiful 2011 Volvo Hatchback with the undercover auction cam! "The 2011 Volvo C30 isn't your typical "hot hatch." Sure, it's got a powerful turbocharged engine and an available sport-tuned suspension, but this Swede is about a lot more than just speed. Don't get us wrong -- the C30 actually drives nicely and has more dynamic capabilities than most drivers will care to exploit. But with its chic interior and a classic hatchback design that evokes Volvos of yore, the C30 is also the closest thing in this segment to automotive art." (Edmunds.com)
