( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The Mazdaspped3 and the Volkswagen GTI are about as hot as hot hatchbacks get. Both have what it takes to make you a winner on the road and on the track, but which one is the better car? That's the question that we ask and answer in this review of two of the hottest and most affordable cars on the road.
2013 Lexus RX 350 vs Mercedes-Benz GLK vs Infiniti FX37 0-60 $53K Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the best new all-wheel-drive luxury
Crossover that you can buy for $53,000.00? That's the question we wanted to
answer in this TFLcar Mashup review. Is it the new and refreshed 2013 Lexus
RX 350 or is it the new and refreshed 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 4MATIC or
is it the new and refreshed 2013 Infiniti FX37 AWD? The Lexus represents
the most popular vehicle in the segment, while Mercedes-Benz is packed full
of new safety technology and of course the Infiniti is the most sporty of
the three. In this fun TFLcar Mashup review we not only rate all three
Crossovers but we also see which one is fastest from 0-60 MPH.
2010 Bentley Continental vs Cadillac CTS-V
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2010 Bentley Continental Suspersports will
set you back $286.845 and it is the most powerful car that Bentley has ever
built with a Twin turbo W-12 6.0L engine
that produces 621 HP. The 2010 Cadillac CTS-V is a mere $ 68,445 and is the
fastest production four door sedan on the market today with a supercharged
V8 from the Corvette ZR-1 that produces 556 HP. Perhaps just as importantly
the two premium luxury sports cars best demonstrate the difference of
flying business vs. flying first class. So what exactly does $200,000 more
2010 Audi Q5 vs. Jeep Patriot Limited Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Let's say you want one of the new 5-passenger
Crossover's but you have a taste for Champagne... but you are on on a Beer
budget. We compare the Audi Q5 to the Jeep Patriot to see the difference of
what a beer vs. a champagne budget buys.
DRIVEN Mazda MAZDASPEED3
Velocity junkies on a budget look no further. The turbocharged 2010 MAZDASPEED3 offers up gobs of
power, tenacious handling and a high quality interior. Prices start at
24K, you're on you own with the speeding tickets. The SPEED3 is one of Tom
Voelk's top picks for 2009.
R&R: 2011 Volkswagen Golf R vs Scirocco R
Volkswagen's 188kW, all-wheel-drive Golf R is the ultimate hot-hatch out of
Wolfsburg. Or is it? We pit it against its front wheel drive cousin, the
Scirocco R, for an on road driving impression. All-wheel-drive solidity vs
front wheel drive poise. Its a Volkswagen civil war.
2011 Volkswagen GTI DSG Walkaround, Exhaust, Review, Test Drive
Both transmissions are fantastic for this car, if I had to choose I would
flip a coin between the two. Although, I do personally like the 4-door body
"The 2011 Volkswagen GTI may not be top dog when it comes to performance
numbers, but overall it's one of our top picks when it comes to sporty
Volkswagen Golf GTI MK6 hatchback 2009 - 2012 review - CarBuyer
See the full review here:
The latest Volkswagen Golf GTI is a lesson to other hot hatch makers in
design, build quality and image. Factor in impressive performance and
genuine day-to-day practicality, and it's no wonder the famous GTI badge
still proves so popular. It's available as a three or five-door hatchback,
and is based on the standard Golf. The GTI has recently faced tough
competition in the form of the Renaultsport Megane 265 and Ford Focus ST.
The 2.0-litre turbocharged engine has
207bhp in standard guise, while the limited-run Edition 35 comes with
232bhp, although that's not as much power as the Megane or Focus.
Performance is strong and the handling sporty, but it's more comfortable
than its rivals and boasts a high-quality interior.
2012 Volkswagen GTI DSG Test Dive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/volkswagen/gti/2012/ The 2012 Volkswagen GTI is
just about the most fun you can have in a car for around $25,000. A compact
performance car is judged based on its engine. And the GTI has one of the
best all-around 4-cylinder engines in the world. In fact this engine powers
numerous Volkswagen and Audi vehicles. But the 2012 Volkswagen GTI is not
just a car with a wonderful engine; the GTI is also a good looking car that
is well balanced, and quite comfortable. In fact you can get the Volkswagen
GTI in both a 2-door and 4-door hatchback body style. The base price is
$23,995 with the top of the line Autobahn model costing $31,695.
The 2012 Volkswagen GTI is powered by a direct injection turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine that
makes 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft. of
torque. While this may not seem like a ton of power, it is more than enough
for the everyday driver. Power is transmitted through a 6-speed manual or
6-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels. The automatic
transmission is called the DSG which stands for Direct-Shift Gearbox. This
double clutch electronically controlled transmission can execute a shift in
mere milliseconds. This helps performance figures such as 0-60 MPH as well
as adding to the fuel economy of the GTI. The manual transmission model
gets 21 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway while the DSG automatic
transmission model gets 24 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway.
On the inside of the 2012 Volkswagen GTI you have 2 choices when it comes
to seating material. There are the cloth seats that are very unique and
serve as a tribute to the first GTI from the 1970's. On the other hand you
can get your GTI with top sports seats that are finished in leather and
provide a comfortable yet firm feel. The rest of the interior of the 2012
Volkswagen GTI is accented here and there with awesome red stitching on the
shift boot and steering wheel. Speaking of the steering wheel; this flat
bottom unit has integrated controls for the stereo. The pedals are also
very sporty and race inspired.
The GTI also features a ton of technology built in. On the outside the
daytime LED running lights are a standard safety feature that not only
looks great but also makes you more visible to oncoming traffic. Bluetooth
comes standard on the GTI and you can upgrade to a touch-screen navigation
unit. On the safety front the GTI sports 6 airbags, Electronic Stability
Control, and an Intelligent Crash Response System. The attention to safety
has resulted in the Volkswagen GTI being picked as a 2012 Top Safety Pick
by the IIHS.
