hard edges of the new 2012 TL. Now it looks more like your Dad's Acura. But
also look for better fuel economy and a revised interior. Acura engineers
managed to reduce internal friction and increased the mileage to 20 mpg
city and 29 mpg highway. That's an increase of three miles per gallon on
the highway over the 2010 car.

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Hyundai Veloster and the 2012 Subaru
Impreza compete against each other on the showroom floor. But we at TFLcar
bought it would be more fun to see them compete against each other in a

CVT while the all new Hyundai Veloster has a six speed stick a little bit
less power and weight. So which one of these two is faster in a straight line? Check out another

Climb - Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a Monster
Ride on the bumper of a screaming 910hp, Twin-turbo, All-wheel Drive, 150 mph Suzuki SX4 as it
races up one of the world's most dangerous hills. An attempt by the
"Monster" to break his own record of 10:01:41...
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 29, 2010) -- For the fifth consecutive time,
Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima combined experience, skill and Falken Tires to
claim overall victory in the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International
Although he did not set a new Pikes Peak record, one day before his 60th
birthday, Tajima continues to hold the current overall record for reaching
the peak, beating hill climb veterans Paul Dallenbach and Rhys Millen in
the Unlimited Class. He drove his new 910-hp Monster Sport Suzuki SX4 Hill
Climb Special on Falken WildPeak A/T tires, the powerful new line of
all-terrain, all-season tires Falken launched this past April.
Following Exhaustive tests in a
Japanese wind tunnel facility, Monster's 2010 Pikes Peak race car underwent
extensive aerodynamic changes to better adapt to the modified road surface
on the race to the clouds, which assumed a smoother tarmac and less gravel
than last year. Thinning air ascending the mountain robs most motors of
their power by 30 or more percent, but the increase in horsepower over last year's
race car helped push the driver forward.
