( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Toyota Avalon V6 has been redesigned with a much more youthful buyer in mind. Gone is the old-fashioned and somewhat stogy Avalon replaced by a much sleeker and dare we say sportier model that hopes to sell better to a larger demographic of buyers. We recently had the chance to test, drive and review the all new Avalon, and of course to see how fast it will go from 0-60 MPH in San Antonio, Texas. So is the Avalon ready to move out of the country club and into the mainstream? Check out this first drive review to find out.
2013 Suzuki Grand Vitara: Behind the Scenes of a TFLcar Off-Road Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Suzuki Grand Vitara is certainly a
small, rugged and off-road worthy SUV. But we at TFLcar have already
reviewed the 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara...which is almost identical to the
2013 model. So in this video we pull back the curtain and take you behind
the scenes and show you how we produce a Fast Lane Car off-road mountain
review. If you are curious as to where we go to test our cars, Crossovers
and SUV and Jeeps: this video will show all of our muddy and dirty secrets.
2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid 0-60 MPH First Drive Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid is one of the most
fuel efficient full-sized sedans that you can purchase today. Toyota says
that it gets a combined 40 mile per gallon rating. And while it does share
its 2.5L powertrain with the Toyota Camry Hybrid the rest of the car is all
new. Just like the regular Avalon, the Hybrid model has been updated to
reflect a more youthful target buyer. In this first drive review we of
course test the Camry Hybrid from 0-60 MPH to see if it is as speedy and
youthful as Toyota claims.
2013 Audi S5 Quattro S tronic 0-60 MPH Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Audi S5 Coupe Quattro is an
all-wheel-drive autobahn burner. With a supercharged 333 horsepower 3.0L engine the
Audi S5 pulls like a freight train. In this video review we not only drive
the newest automatic 7-speed Audi S5 through the snow-covered Colorado
mountains but we find out if it is faster 0-60 MP from the manual version of
the same model we tested a few months ago.
2013 Lexus RX 350 vs Mercedes-Benz GLK vs Infiniti FX37 0-60 $53K Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the best new all-wheel-drive luxury
Crossover that you can buy for $53,000.00? That's the question we wanted to
answer in this TFLcar Mashup review. Is it the new and refreshed 2013 Lexus
RX 350 or is it the new and refreshed 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 4MATIC or
is it the new and refreshed 2013 Infiniti FX37 AWD? The Lexus represents
the most popular vehicle in the segment, while Mercedes-Benz is packed full
of new safety technology and of course the Infiniti is the most sporty of
the three. In this fun TFLcar Mashup review we not only rate all three
Crossovers but we also see which one is fastest from 0-60 MPH.
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

What I have to say about the 2013 Avalon: Out with the old and in with the
new, this quote can be directly used toward the new 2013 Toyota Avalon.
Toyota's main approach was to entice younger buyers into the Avalon instead
of the old ones. The previous generation was quite boring as some people
would call it as it had no sporty flavor, that it's competitors had.
However, this has changed for 2013 a new stiffed up suspension and better
driving dynamics, this one is way more fun to drive with still having some
of that floaty boaty taste. The interior is very rich looking with
stitching almost everywhere, as I was very surprised by it. Everything is
ergonomically correct in the car and the touch sensitive buttons used for
almost all of your basic functions is actually one of the best I have ever
used. All in all very great car from Toyota I really recommend to buy it
for a Full Size car for 2013. Like Camerons Car Reviews on Facebook!

2014 Toyota Avalon XLE Premium Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/avalon/2014/prices/?id=32972 The 2014
Toyota Avalon is a big, roomy, fuel efficient car with some nice luxury
amenities. The Avalon has been on sale in the U.S. for almost 20 years and
it has never been a very stylish car. Well that all changed with the most
recent update last year. Now the Avalon has a very sleek and aerodynamic
look that will set the tone for other Toyota vehicles as evident with the
The 2014 Toyota Avalon is a full-sized family car that is priced between
$31,340 - $39,650 with the model tested here coming in at $33,195. The
Avalon is a very light-weight vehicle in the class of portly large sedans.
That helps with not only fuel economy but also with performance. The 3.5
liter V-6 engine makes 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft. or
torque. Fuel economy is 21 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway.
Being a full-sized car, the Avalon has a ton of interior space especially
for the rear passengers. The driver's seat is wrapped in leather with 8-way
adjustable controls. Comfort is certainly not a problem in the Avalon. The
Intelligent Touch Center Console controls the stereo and climate controls.
The only downside is the small touchscreen. Ergonomically the control and
features are easy to find.

2013 Ford Fusion Titanium Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, Test Drive
Subscribe today for all the latest reviews!
If you are looking for the "James Bond" of family sedans, look no further
than Ford's completely redesigned, third generation Fusion Titanium. Jaw
dropping looks, combined with sharp handling, and impressive powertrains,
produce one well rounded family sedan. We think if Ford improves on their
value card as well as making the interior a bit more user friendly they
could really have a best in class vehicle, until then, we think it's top 3.
