Generations have grown up trained to shop the import brands for a good subcompact car. Sonic is out to make waves in the segment and change that kind of thinking. Tom Voelk takes a look at a turbo LTZ model.

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS is a small turbo-charged pocket rocket that's fun to drive.
But is it faster than the Sonic turbo? That's a question that we answer in

Filmed by: Tomaž Kožar Jesenice
The full-size luxury-car segment is a ship constantly steered by a new
captain. Indeed, whenever one of the usual suspects—Mercedes, BMW,
Jaguar, or Audi—releases a new model, it seems the current favorite then
drops to second place. The BMW 7-series recently pulled off this feat,
topping the previous gold standard, the Mercedes-Benz S550, in a comparison
test. The Porsche Panamera then swooped in to knock off the Bimmer.
(Granted, the Panamera is a bit of an outlier, given that its five-door
body doesn't fit the traditions of the segment.) Now the 2011 Audi A8 looks
like a strong contender to be the next to sit in the captain's chair.
One Engine Now, Others Coming
The 2011 A8 goes on sale this fall at a starting price of about $90,000.
The A8 will be available here with just one engine when it launches: the
long-lived direct-injection, 4.2-liter DOHC V-8. As installed in this
third-generation A8, the V-8 gains 22 hp and 4 lb-ft of torque over its
previous iteration, with output now totaling 372 hp and 328 lb-ft. The horsepower figure is
just enough to make it the least powerful in the segment, ceding eight
ponies to the Lexus LS460 and 10 to the S550. Audi says the A8 returns
13-percent-better fuel economy than does its predecessor, which translates
roughly to 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway for the new car.
Have no fear, power brokers: There will be other engines available in the
coming years. Audi has confirmed there will be a W-12 model as well as a
new S8, although the Lamborghini-derived V-10 that powers the last S8 will
be replaced by a smaller and lighter engine equipped with forced induction.
It's rumored that a new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 will get the job.Another possible engine
in the A8's future is the 3.0-liter V-6 turbo-diesel that's available at launch in Europe.
We had a chance to sample it in southern Spain, and if you don't think the
diesel's 250 hp is enough to power the 4400-pound luxury sedan, allow us to
point out its 406 lb-ft of torque. If that's not enough to keep you from
scoffing, perhaps highway mileage in the 30-mpg range will help. The diesel
feels peppy thanks, to the smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic
transmission, which is perfectly calibrated to keep the engine in the juicy
part of the torque plateau. It isn't as quick as the gasoline V-8, but the
smaller diesel would be more than enough for most drivers.
Unmistakably an Audi, the A8 Is Light on Its Feet
From the outside, the 2011 A8 is clearly cut from four-ringed cloth. The
tail almost completely mimics the rear of the latest A4, and the corporate
grille is in full effect, even if it has grown from a goatee into more of a
mini-beard. All four corners share a similar squared-off element, and the
front quarters, if analyzed closely, hint at the upcoming Bentley Mulsanne
(some interoffice cribbing, maybe?). The LED headlamps are distinctive and
can vary the depth of their beams based on the proximity of oncoming
traffic. Wheel sizes range from 17 inches to 20.All A8 models get that
ZF-supplied eight-speed automatic transmission, which really breathes new
life into the old 4.2, and all have manumatic shifting and paddles on the
steering wheel. We estimate the A8 will scoot to 60 mph in the
mid-five-second range—middle of the pack in terms of acceleration. But
what it lacks in outright speed, the A8 makes up for in sporting demeanor.
That demeanor comes in part from the fitment of the high-tech bits that are
optional on lesser models as part of Audi "drive select" packages. Standard
on the A8 are adjustable shocks, variable-rate air springs, variable-ratio
steering, and most notably, the torque-vectoring rear differential found in
the S4 and S5. (Options packaging for the U.S. hasn't been completely
finalized. A "more dynamic" adjustable air suspension is part of a Sport
package on the current car, but given the new car's standard chassis
hardware, we expect that if such a package were to be offered, it would
encompass only wheels and aesthetic tweaks.)The trick diff helps curb the
effects of that longtime bane of Audi dynamics, weight distribution. Audi
engines have traditionally been bolted well ahead of the front axle, a
front-heavy setup that contributes to predominant, if predictable,
understeer. The engine location is no different in the '11 A8, but the
sport differential eliminates the push and turns the car into a neutral
Like the latest 7-series, the A8 drives smaller than its length (202.2
inches) suggests, and the variable-rate steering transmits a good amount of
information from the tires. Our largest dynamic complaint concerns the
brake pedal, which is mushy in its first couple of inches of travel. That
could be attributable to the early production models we drove, so we'll
wait until we test one to see if things are tightened up.

Chevrolet Aveo hatchback review - CarBuyer
The Chevrolet Aveo boasts high levels of standard equipment, and a new,
motorbike-inspired interior. The funky rev counter and LED speedometer add
a sporty touch to the Aveo's cabin, while the coupe-inspired styling,
including hidden rear door handles and aggressive headlights, adds even
more kerbside appeal. The Aveo is more practical than the excellent Suzuki
Swift, and with prices set to undercut many of the class leaders, Chevrolet
has created a tempting package. A new diesel version should also be one of
the most frugal cars in its class too.
2012 Chevrolet Sonic Review and 0-60 MPH Drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) For 2012 Chevrolet has completely redesigned and
even renamed the Chevy Aveo. The small Chevrolet economy car is now the
brand new Chevy Sonic. The old Aveo was really a rebadged Korean that is
now a bad memory in the minds of many car reviewers. So of course the
obvious question is has General Motors come out of the corner swinging with
a brand new Chevrolet Sonic that can take on the likes of the very popular
Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta, and of course the very similar KIA Rio. Check out
this 0 to 60 MPH review of the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic to find out.
