Veloster was released in 2011 many enthusiasts were excited to see a
fantastic looking and affordable sport compact car that would give the
other hot hatchbacks in the segment a run for their money. The let down
came when the hood was opened to reveal a 138 horsepower 1.6 liter
naturally aspirated engine that was more suited for fuel efficiency rather
that for performance. Well now you can have your cake with the release of
the 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo! The

6-speed automatic version with paddle shifters. The manual is the more fuel
efficient transmission at 26 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway.

running light accents which are normally reserved for high end luxury
vehicles. The wheels on the Hyundai Veloster turbo are 18-inch alloy units that combine both a
matte and chrome finish. The limited edition matte gray pain job will set
you back an additional $800, but the finished result is well worth it. The
standard non-turbo Veloster features
squared Exhaust tips while the turbo model has rounded ones.

considered one of the hottest new hatchbacks on the market. Not only does

option. The 2013 Mercedes GLK-Class can seat up to 5 adults.

significantly improved. The shifter has been moved to the column in an
effort to make more room on the center console. The Navigation system and
touch screen are one of the best in the business and therefore remain
unchanged. New for this model is the addition of a Stop/Start system that
shuts the engine off while sitting idle. This system is good for improving
fuel economy by a few MPG. Overall Mercedes did a wonderful job on the

releasing a Diesel version of the GLK-Class called the GLK250 BlueTec that
should be a bit hit.

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ford Taurus and the Chrysler 300 S both
have V-6 engines, both seat 5 passengers and both have all-wheel-drive.

to call this video Mashup Review is a stretch as both cars compete directly
with each other. Perhaps the biggest difference between the two cars is
that the Chrysler has 4 more horsepower at 292 versus the
Ford's 288 HP. So the obvious question is which of these two cars is
better. Check out this video "Mashup" to find out.

The 300C was conceived when Chrysler was partnered with Mercedes, and is
based on the old E-Class. It looks and feels enormous, whether you opt for
the saloon or estate version, and the styling is very distinctive,
especially when compared to the Audi A6, Mercedes E-Class or BMW 5 Series.
The 300C can't match its rivals in the driving department, but the interior
is comfortable and the soft ride is comfortable on longer journeys. The
diesel engine is a better option than the thirsty V8 petrol model, an all
models get high levels of standard equipment.
