The New E: 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Full Test by Edmunds
FULL MERCEDES E550 ARTICLE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Here's the biggest difference between the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 and the 2009 Mercedes-Benz E550: The 2010 costs $5,400 less.
Usually, we save money matters for the end of a Mercedes E-Class road test. First we tell you that it has a perfectly relaxing ride quality and a smooth V8 with an indiscreet amount of torque. Then we describe a down-to-business cabin dominated by leather, wood and COMAND. Finally, though, we have to talk about money, and, well, Benz has a well-earned reputation for pricing its sedans higher than everybody else.
But this time it's different. When the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 goes on sale in June, its $57,175 base price will land it smack in the middle of the V8 midsize luxury sedan class. It's also cheaper than anything else coming out of Germany.
Spicy Volvo? New 2010 Volvo XC60 Tested
FULL VOLVO XC60 INFO @ INSIDELINE.COM:
After driving the 2010 Volvo XC60 through our slalom test at 65.1 mph —
the second-fastest speed we've recorded in this vehicle segment — two
observations were easy to make: 1) This SUV handles — probably better
than it needs to; 2) will anyone care?
After all, we don't know any Volvo owners who list "lightning-quick
reflexes" among their top purchase priorities. But maybe that's just it.
Maybe Volvo is expanding its horizons. You certainly won't catch us
complaining that any crossover utility vehicle handles too well.
As a result, one thing is certain: Volvo realizes that performance is a
priority in this segment. And by that measure, yes, people will care. But
there are other benefits as well.
Been CC'd? VW CC 2.0T Gets Tested by Edmunds' Inside Line
FULL VOLKWAGEN CC ARTICLE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
There are plenty of people who would like the 2009 Volkswagen CC a lot
better if it were ugly. Isn't a VW supposed to be ugly?
Hardly anyone has firsthand memories of the Volkswagen Bug anymore, and yet
the lumpy little People's Car follows VW around like some kind of family
curse, reminding everybody of a time when everything about Volkswagen
seemed wacky and comically futuristic, like a science fiction movie of the
1950s. The fatal flaw of the 2004 Volkswagen Phaeton might not have really
been its $66,700 price point but instead its refusal to embrace the
Of course, this is the very strength of the 2009 Volkswagen CC. It's
really, really stylish and yet it still has the soul of a plain, practical
sedan meant for our times of frugality and fuel-efficiency.
2010 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Rumbles Around the 'Ring
SEE MORE SPY VIDEOS:
Meaner and greener — that's the new objective of AMG. The tuning arm of
Mercedes-Benz is rapidly approaching its peak in terms of horsepower, so cleaning up
emissions while maintaining performance is the key for the future. This
2010 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG spotted testing on the Nürburgring could be the
first of AMG's new green machines.
Mercedes-Benz officials have gone on record saying that all of the
company's future engines will be turbocharged, so it's likely that AMG will follow
suit. With that in mind, this sedan might not be an E63 at all, as the
addition of one turbo (or maybe two)
would likely mean a smaller-displacement engine. Either way, there will be
at least 500 hp and a healthy amount of low-end torque to ensure that this
super sedan can keep pace with its German rivals.
Like the other E-Class sedan prototypes we've seen before, this test mule
reveals only evolutionary changes to the overall shape of the midsize
sedan. A redesigned set of headlights is the most dramatic change, but this
AMG version also gets a deeper airdam with a pair of brake-cooling ducts at
each front corner. They feed air to a serious-looking set of drilled rotors
fitted with oversize calipers.
There's not much of a body kit, and the rear fascia shows only minor
changes compared to the current model. And like almost all AMG models,
there are quad tailpipes poking out from the relatively clean rear fascia.
It's a tame-looking setup, but the sound coming from the four pipes proved
to be pure AMG as this sedan circled the Nürburgring.
The public debut of the standard Mercedes-Benz E-Class isn't expected until
early next year, so you probably won't see the 2010 E63 AMG until late 2009
at the earliest.
Spied: Audi RS5 Spy Footage from Europe

Maybe you've seen pictures of the 2010 Audi RS5 before. The prototypes were
caught roaming around the California desert in varying degrees of
camouflage last summer. But other than indicating that the program was
indeed proceeding, the cobbled-together test mules didn't expose any
Now the RS5 is undergoing high-speed testing on the Nurburgring, and the
prototypes look a little more finished. Our spy video also gives us our
first chance to hear the high-performance coupe, and it delivers a good
hint at what's under the hood..
Kia Forte Koup @ 2009 New York Auto Show
MORE 2009 NYIAS @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Kia is entering the compact coupe fray this spring with a production
version of last year's Koup concept, introduced at the 2009 New York Auto
Show. The 2010 Forte Koup shares its underpinnings with the new Forte sedan
that was displayed in February at the Chicago show.
Slightly shorter and lower than the sedan, the five-passenger Forte Koup is
aimed at such competitors as the Scion tC, the Honda Civic, the Chevrolet
Cobalt and the Ford Focus. It is being offered in two trim levels, EX and
The Forte Koup EX comes with a 156-horsepower DOHC 2.0-liter
four-cylinder engine and a choice of five-speed manual or four-speed
automatic transmission. Its EPA city/highway fuel economy numbers are 25
mpg and 34 mpg, respectively, with either transmission.
The Forte Koup SX gets a larger, more powerful DOHC 2.4-liter four-cylinder
engine that makes 173 hp and 168 pound-feet of torque. With the standard
six-speed manual transmission, it is EPA rated at 22/32 mpg, while the
optional five-speed automatic changes the fuel-economy ratings to 23/31
Both models come with standard air conditioning, tilt steering column,
power windows and locks, remote keyless entry, cruise control and a
six-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with steering-wheel-mounted audio
controls and full iPod controls.
The Forte Koup SX is the trim level of choice. It comes with 17-inch alloy
wheels and 215/45R-17 tires, as well as sport cloth bucket seats with red
stitching, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, plus metal
pedals and trim.
Both Forte Koup models also come with a high level of standard safety gear,
including front-seat-mounted side airbags and side curtains, four-wheel
disc brakes with ABS, electronic stability control and a tire-pressure
2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport vs Mercedes-Benz E350 vs BMW 535i race track review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Lexus GS 350 F is taking direct aim
at both the new Mercedes-Benz E350 and the new BMW 535i. We recently had a
chance to drive all three cars on the race track in Las Vegas to compare
how well the newest and perhaps sexiest Lexus does against these two very
well regarded and long established German luxury performance sedans. Check
out this first drive review of the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F as we test all
three cars head to head.
