The Auto123 Show 29x04 - Auto123.com's Midsize Sedan Comparo
Being surrounded by so many automotive journalists and indirectly gleaning
the joy they have from driving and reviewing a car every week, it was
probably only a matter of time until it happened... Donna weaselled her way
into contributing to a real car review! Don't panic! It is not as though
Donna's opinion is taking precedence over a veteran car reviewer's, but she
was invited to join her highly-esteemed colleagues as the 'resident female
layman' for a Comparo of 7 Midsize Sedans. See how the day went as Donna
gets some hands-on training in automotive reviewing as she and the team
take on the 2010 Ford Fusion SEL, the 2010 Honda Accord EX-L NAVI, the 2011
Hyundai Sonata Limited, the 2010 Mazda6 GT-I4, the 2010 Subaru Legacy PZEV,
the 2011 Suzuki Kizashi and the 2011 Toyota Camry SE. Want more?! Please

2012 Chevrolet Traverse Explored
Read more at
The 2012 edition of the Chevrolet Traverse is being rolled out. This is a
crossover SUV that is made with some of the best fuel standards around and
works with a third row of seats that is easy for anyone to manage. It has
become one of the most notable 7 seat SUVs around and has become so popular
that it can be found today in various trims. Read about the Chevrolet
Traverse 2011 first!.
A key about the 2012 Chevy Traverse is that it features a number of points
that are similar to what it has had in the past but it will have a few
changes that still make it impressive. Meanwhile, this is expected to be
the last of the current Traverse models. A full redesign of Chevy Traverse
is expected for 2013. It is not clear as to what the new version will have
but the current 2012 version will be a good chance for anyone to pick up
one of the top SUVs that seat seven.
The Engine Works Right
The engine that is being used for this 2012 7 seat car is the same that was
used in the 2011 edition of the Traverse. It is a 3.6L V6 engine. It works
to get the standard 17/24 mpg rating that was found in the previous model,
thus creating something that is a little easier to manage when compared
with other vehicles. These include things like the Toyota Highlander, a
vehicle that is similar to the Traverse but only gets a 15/22 mpg rating.
This engine works with an all wheel drive function. A six speed automatic
transmission is also used here. This works with one of the smoothest
acceleration procedures around, thus providing anyone with the most
effective driving functions around.
The suspension is also completely independent from other functions around
the vehicle. This is used to create a better ride that is easier to manage.
The Interior is Useful
The dimensions in the Traverse are around the same as what the 2011 model
used. The car has 36.8 inches of leg room in the second row and 33.2 inches
in the third row. There is also about sixty inches of shoulder room in
every row around the car.
The third row can especially be useful not only because it has cup holders
but also because it works alongside a second row that is easy to manage.
The second row uses a Smart Slide seat that is easy to move around. It can
be slid forward with a single motion to help create plenty of space and to
make it so people can get in and out of the car as easily as possible.
The fact that the second and third row seats can be laid down flat helps as
well. In fact, the 2012 Chevrolet Traverse offers around 120 cubic feet of
cargo space. This is much greater than what other 7 seat cars have,
particularly the Ford Explorer with its 80 cubic feet of cargo space.
This works with a few different features that make the car more beneficial.
First, the vehicle has air bags on varying points. These include rear body
and curtain air bags. There are six total air bags around the vehicle.

Battle of the Crossover SUV's: Honda v Mazda v Toyota
LEARN MORE ABOUT CROSSOVERS:
We keep a couple seven-passenger crossover SUVs in our long-term test fleet
and they're indispensable for carting around kids, terriers and lawn
furniture. Of course, we still crack the obvious jokes. We'll tell you that
these are minivans with hinged doors, SUVs trail-rated for the Starbucks
drive-thru, tall wagons that think they're too good to be called tall
But there's nothing superficial or irrational about crossover SUVs like the
2009 Honda Pilot, 2008 Mazda CX-9 or 2008 Toyota Highlander. All three make
good on the crossover promise of a vast interior, easy maneuverability and
decent fuel economy. Maybe you're aghast that anyone would need three rows
of seating, but maybe you've never tried to cram three toddlers in Britax
car seats into a Honda Accord.
We have. You need that third row. But if that third row were in a minivan,
you might find yourself filling a prescription for antidepressants. This
leaves you to consider a crossover SUV of medium-to-large proportions.
Just about any current-day crossover will accomplish the basics, but the
diversity of this vehicle genre might catch you off guard. Even though the
2009 Honda Pilot, 2008 Mazda CX-9 and 2008 Toyota Highlander seem to match
one another airbag for airbag, their personalities are so different that
you can't drive them without taking sides.
If you want a really nice SUV with plenty of interior space and fun toys
and gadgets for the kids, you might want to check this car out...
On the outside the new Highlander looks modern, offering a nice design
blend, between its main competitors: Honda Pilot and Saturn Outlook. It
combines the same smo...
Tesla Roadster Test Drive
One beautiful December day we went for a test drive on the much talked
about, super fast electric sports car, the Tesla Roadster. We also
interviewed Tesla in their showroom and assembly area.
It was an amazing experience and I hope that car companies will make
electric cars the standard fleet coming out of their factories.

Chevrolet Traverse. Although the once-thriving SUV business is in a sales
downturn, GM is keenly aware that many Americans still have a need for
seven-passenger transportation. With this in mind, GM has created a new
line of crossover SUVs offering maximum interior space, mid-level towing
capability and fuel economy numbers that reach into the mid-twenties. The
latest iteration of this well-conceived platform is the 2009 Chevrolet
Traverse, a vehicle that combines contemporary styling, one of the best
accident-avoidance systems in the business and an interior worthy of a
high-end luxury car - all at a Chevrolet price. For more new car reviews,
