2012 Lexus LS 460L Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/lexus/ls-460/2012/ The original Lexus LS 400 debuted back in 1989 and helped to redefine what a luxury car is as well as where a luxury car maker can come from. Asian automakers are known for customer service, dependability, and refinement; and the 2012 Lexus LS 460L is just as exemplary of what a luxury should be as the original. The base model short wheelbase LS 460 starts at $67,630 with the top of the line AWD Long Wheelbase version bringing the price all the way up to $75,480.
The 2012 Lexus LS 460L is powered by a 4.6 liter V-8 engine that makes 380 horsepower and 367 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is a slick shifting 8-speed automatic. The powerful engine and transmission help the LS 460L achieve 0-60 MPH in 5.4 seconds. Pretty great for a heavy full-size luxury sedan. Fuel economy is pretty good at 16 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway.
The LS 460 host a whole bunch of great features and technology. From a driving and performance perspective the 2012 Lexus LS 460L features dual variable valve timing, an 8-speed transmission as mentioned above, variable gear ratio steering, electronic power steering, and direct injection. You can choose between RWD or AWD with enhanced traction control. The Lexus LS 460L has a sophisticated adaptive variable air suspension. This suspension relies on air springs that are controlled from inside the cabin. The driver can choose between three different suspension setting between sporty and luxurious.
On the outside the Lexus LS 460L looks the part of a full fledge luxury car. The paint hob features a wet-sanded finish that increases luster and depth. The headlights are HID with an Adaptive Front Lighting Feature. The taillights feature LEDs which are more noticeable than regular bulbs. The sport edition comes with huge 19-inch alloy rims along with a cool sporty grille. The technology found on the Lexus LS 460L is the best stuff that Toyota has to offer. You get dynamic radar cruise control, an advanced parking guidance system, intuitive park assist, SmartAccess, a backup camera, power trunk, touch screen navigation, and more.
The great thing about the 2012 Lexus LS 460 is that it has a great resale value and the vehicle is very dependable.

http://www.autobytel.com/lexus/rx-450h/2012/ The 2012 Lexus 450h is a
crossover luxury SUV that is not only great to drive, but it also has
excellent fuel economy ratings. The RX series has been a wonderful
selling line of luxury crossovers since 1998 and the Hybrid model sits at
or near the top of the list of most fuel efficient SUVs year after year.
And the Lexus RX 450h is an AutoPacific 2012 Vehicle Satisfaction Award
winner. The RX 450h comes in 2 different trim levels. The first is the FWD
model which has a base price of $45,235. The second is the AWD model which
has a base price of $46,825.
The RX hybrid is powered by an Atkinson cycle 3.5 liter V-6 engine that
produces 245 horsepower and 244 lb-ft. of
torque. The hybrid powertrain features two electric motors that give an
extra Boost to the V-6 engine adding
50 HP. Fuel economy ratings are 32 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the
highway. Not only is the RX hybrid very fuel efficient, but it is also a
Super Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle. The 2012 Lexus RX 450h sports two
systems that help in both efficiency and emissions. The Exhaust Heat Recovery system that helps with the
warm up of the vehicle and Exhaust Gas
Recirculation which is water cooled and reduces pumping losses.
It is not just the Lexus Hybrid Drive that is responsible for the great MPG
ratings. The RX hybrid features a start-stop system to increase fuel
economy. The luxury hybrid can also run on battery power alone. The ECO
mode monitor shows the driver how to drive in a more efficient manner. The
RX hybrid sports the first Electronically controlled Continuously Variable
Transmission which is meant to keep the luxury SUV in the right gear at all
time thus maximizing efficiency. The steering unit runs off electricity
instead on a belt driven by the engine. The result is less strain on the
engine resulting in better MPG. The 2012 Lexus RX 450h uses a regenerative
braking system to power the batteries.
On the outside the 3rd generation RX features a bold and exciting new
design with a new bumper, headlight assembly, and new grille. Dimensions
have been increased a bit and cargo room is up 5%. The real news is that
the drag coefficient has been reduced to 0.33 thanks in large part to the
rear wing which reduces air turbulence. On the inside the 2012 Lexus RX
hybrid is all luxury and technology. The 8-inch navigation is voice
activated and a heads-up display projects directions onto the windshield.
Supply leather abounds and the front seats are heated and ventilated units
that are power adjustable.

gets incredible gas mileage. Both green and efficient, the RX hybrid is a

2012 Cadillac Escalade Test Drive & Luxury SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/cadillac/escalade/2012/ The 2012 Cadillac Escalade
might be on the higher end of the price scale for an SUV. However the
Escalade wasn't made for ordinary soccer moms and trips to the grocery
store, Cadillac's premium SUV was built for those looking for luxurious
comfort. It's not uncommon to see rap stars, movie stars, diplomats, and
other famous high profile people stepping out of an Escalade. The 2012
Cadillac Escalade exudes style and sophistication, and is also packed full
of the latest and greatest technology as well as a very powerful engine.
The base price for this SUV is $63,170 with the top of the line Platinum
Edition AWD moving off dealer lots starting at $82,495.
The 2012 Cadillac Escalade is powered by a powerful 6.2 liter V-8 engine
that produces 403 horsepower and 417 lb-ft. of
torque. The Escalade's transmission is a 6-speed automatic that is very
responsive and great for towing. The Escalade also comes with either a RWD
or AWD drivetrain. Fuel economy for the 4x2 model is 14 MPG in the city and
18 MPG on the highway thanks to Active Fuel Management which essentially
turns the Escalade V-8 into a 4-cylinder engine at low operating loads. The
suspension features Magnetic Ride Control Shocks that sense changes in the
road and make adjustments every few milliseconds. This technology allows
the shocks to dampen almost instantaneously providing a comfortable ride.
The Escalade has always been known to have the latest and greatest
technology available from Cadillac. Some great features found on the 2012
model include: Blind Zone Alert, Touch-Screen Navigation, Bose surround
sound, and more. There is DVD entertainment for the rear passengers.

prevalent in the 2012 Cadillac Escalade. And now the Escalade also features

2012 Hyundai Equus Test Drive & Luxury Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/equus/2012/ Everything you would expect in
a luxury sedan can be found in the 2012 Hyundai Equus. In fact the Equus is
a very nice alternative to Lexus, BMW, and Mercedes at a more affordable
price. The Equus is a RWD long wheel base luxury sedan with a base price of
$59,000. This is $15k-$30k less than is competition!
When the Equus was first launched in this country it came with a very
respectable 4.6 liter engine. But the engine certainly did not have the
guts to match up to some of the competitors in the luxury car segment. For
the 2012 model year the Equus gets an updated GDI 5.0 liter V-8 engine
produces huge numbers at 429 horsepower and 376 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission is an 8-speed automatic. Fuel economy figures are
15 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway.
Hyundai has gone to great lengths to shed the image that their cars lack
character. Well the new fluidic design element is evident on the 2012
Hyundai Equus. Up front the Equus shares the same style front grill as the
Genesis sedan. HID Xenon headlights equipped with LED turn signals really
accent the exterior of this luxury sedan. The 19-inch chrome wheels are
also a great touch and they perfectly accentuate the other chrome accents
parts on the exterior. The Equus can easily be mistaken for a Lexus or
other high-end luxury cars.
If you got behind the wheel of a 2012 Hyundai Equus, you might think you
are in a Lexus LS 460. The gauges are very similar to that of other
high-end luxury cars and the seat adjustments are located on the door just
like they are in a Mercedes S550. There is an 8-inch navigation unit that
also displays driver information located in the center dash. The whole
interior is wrapped in high quality leather. There are lovely wood accents
throughout. The audio is handled by a 608-watt Lexicon sound system. The
driver's seats are 12-way adjustable and feature both heating and cooling.
In the back there are two premium first-class seats that can recline and
feature leg support. The center console in the rear is a mini fridge. The
2012 Hyundai Equus combines all the best features found on other luxury
cars in one great package.

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS550 Test Drive & Luxury Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mercedes-benz/cls-class/2012/ The 2012
Mercedes-Benz CLS550 luxury car sports improved styling with a more
aggressive front end and a sexy rear end. Over all the exterior evolution
of the CLS550 results in a much better design compared the previous model.
And believe it or not, the 2012 Mercedes CLS550 has a lower MSRP than the
2011 model at $71,300.
If you like the look of the exterior of this Mercedes luxury car then you
will really get a kick out of what is featured underneath the hood. The
2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS550 comes with a twin-turbo 4.6 liter V-8 engine. Power eclipses the 400
with 443-lb-ft. of torque too. The transmission is an ultra smooth 7-speed.
The 0-60 MPH mark fly's by in 5.2 seconds. The icing on the cake is the
Mercedes CLS550 is quite economical getting 17 MPG in the city and 25 MPG
on the highway all the while qualifying as an ultra-low emissions vehicle.
Everything about the CLS550 nails what the driver wants. Case in point: the
active multi-contour driver's seat. It can be adjusted 14-different ways.
Oh and did I mention the seat will give you a heavenly message? The rest of
the interior is top-notch luxury all the way. The 14 speaker sound system
is brilliant. The Mercedes CLS550 also comes packed with all the high-tech
gadgetry. The 2012 Mercedes CLS550 has some high end competition in the
Audi A7 and Porsche Panamera. But if you are looking for a sporty personal
luxury car, then the CLS550 is tough to beat.
