2013 Mercedes Benz C Class Sedan Autos Alert

R&T Overview:

Mercedes revamps the C-Class sedan for 2012 and adds an attractive new coupe to the mix. Both begin with the C250 Sport featuring a new 201-bhp 1.8-liter direct-injection 4-cylinder turbo. The C350 nets a 302-bhp 3.5-liter V-6. Targeting enthusiasts, the top C63 AMG has a 451-bhp 6.2-liter V-8. Sedans also offer a C300 4Matic with a 228-bhp 3.0-liter V-6. Standard 7-speed automatics include a Speedshift multiclutch version for the C63. Redesigned interiors gain new audio with a 5.8-in. color display, Bluetooth and USB port. Coupes receive standard paddle shifters, sport bucket seats and split-folding rear seats. Attention Assist, Adaptive Brake with Hold function, Lane Keeping Assist and Blind Sport Assist are among C-Class safety features.

2012 Land Rover LR4 Specifications

2010 Land Rover LR4: First Drive

R&T Overview:

At first glance, the LR4 appears to be a misfit—in size it fits between the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, yet it weighs the same as the upscale Range Rover while seating more and costing much less. Land Rover positions the LR4 as a slightly more utilitarian version aimed at those who want the true off-road capabilities without needing the ultimate luxury afforded by Range Rover models. The other key differentiator of the LR4 is the ability to seat an additional two passengers in an albeit cramped third row of seats. Since the LR4 received a major refreshening last year, there are just a handful of minor changes for 2012. These include upgraded infotainment components and navigation system. New wheels and new paint colors are the only exterior changes.

2011 BMW X3 Available Later This Fall

R&T Overview:

Those waiting for BMW's little X1 sport-activity vehicle may want to consider the U.S.-built X3, as the X1 has been delayed until mid-2013. The X3 was all new just last year, and little has changed to this midsize all-wheel-drive crossover, but the options of a manual transmission and diesel power are gone. The smooth but dated naturally aspirated 3.0-liter inline-6 isn't being replaced with the new turbo 4 yet. Mated to the standard 8-speed automatic, the 6 is a compelling reason to buy now rather than wait for the X1, which is considerably smaller, less capable and not much more efficient. The turbo X3 xDrive 35i is our pick for its plentiful power and surprisingly good fuel economy that bests that of the xDrive 28i with 19/26 mpg.

2011 Aston Martin DB9 coupe Specifications

2008 Mansory Aston Martin DB9 - DB9 Coupe Rear And Side 1

R&T Overview:

Aston Martin says changes to the 2011 DB9 are the most significant since the car was first introduced in 2003. Fortunately, the iconic British car company hasn’t altered many things, as there was little wrong with the most successful Aston of all time. The 2+2 car continues to be powered by the 470 bhp V-12 coupled to a 6-speed manual or Touchtronic auto transmission. Styling changes are subtle but include a new front bumper with reshaped lower intake, and recontoured side sills. The Adaptive Damping System (ADS) is similar to that already found on the DBS and Rapide. A button on the center console allows the driver to switch damping modes for the desired ride/handling balance. ADS means that the DB9 Sport Package is no longer available, since it’s not needed.

2010 BMW M5 Specifications

2006 BMW M5 Supersprint Headers Eisenmann Exhaust Dyno Sheet

R&T Overview:

The 5 Series may be the middle child in BMW’s lineup, but it doesn’t suffer from the always-forgotten middle-child syndrome—situated between the smallish 3 and gigantic 7, these sedans and wagons offer just-right sizing. The 528i starts things off with a 3.0-liter 230-bhp inline-6 that works hard to move the 5’s 3500-lb. mass. Things pick up with the twin-turbo 535i, which, although less powerful than the 360-bhp V-8 550i, handles better due to its almost 300 lb. lighter curb weight. All-out performance junkies should look to the legendary M5 and its 500-bhp
V-10. Although the 2010 5 Series is carry-
over (save for an upgrade to the latest 7-button iDrive system), an all-new 5 Series will arrive in the second quarter of 2010 as a 2011 model.
