But maybe most important is that the Outback rides on Subaru's World Famous AWD system. If you like the Impreza you will love the Outback. It looks like a pumped up version of the Impreza sedan with its signature headlights and front grill. But the Subaru Outback is much bigger since it's a crossover wagon. The 2012 Subaru Outback has two different Boxer engine options. The first is a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 170 lb-ft. of torque. If you opt for the CVT transmission the fuel economy figures top out at 20 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway. The larger more powerful engine of the two is a 3.6 liter 6-cylinder that makes 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft. of torque. This engine gets 18 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway. All 2012 Subaru Outback models come with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive which distributes power to all 4 wheels resulting in the maximum amount of traction which of course translates to a safer vehicle. The Outback is one of the most popular wagons on the road today and this vehicle is known for its usefulness and practicality. The rear hatch opens to reveal a huge amount of cargo volume with the seats up and a hard top surface that is tough and durable. With the seats folded down; the Outback swells to 71 cubic feet of storage space. On the inside <b>...</b>

  • Otros buenos autos familiares: 2012 Toyota Camry (Review)

    Descripción en inglés:<br><br> Produced/Shot/Edited by Chris Blanchette www.autoguide.com The reengineered 2012 Camry is good, it just doesn't make for a good story. You see, we understand that along with all the facts and opinions, you want to read a good piece of automotive journalism. And as journalists, we want to write it. There are plenty of compelling stories out there, from an underdog like Hyundai defeating its rivals, to an "oh how the mighty have fallen" story like Consumer Reports slamming the new Civic. But no one wants to read about a winner that was expected to win all along, especially not when it's done so nine years running. True, the new Camry isn't a decisive victor in the mid-size sedan category, although it does stand out in certain areas (namely the Hybrid model and overall fuel economy).

  • Otros buenos autos familiares: 2012 Toyota Sienna

    Descripción en inglés: 2012 Toyota Sienna Adds Comfort Enhancements in Second Year of Redesigned Model • XLE Grade Adds Power Passenger Seat The Toyota Sienna moves into its second year with a number of comfort and convenience enhancements. Toyota introduced the third-generation Sienna family van for 2011 model year with a sharper focus on comfort, versatility, style and fuel efficiency. The 2011 Sienna also introduced a four-cylinder engine choice and remains the only van in the segment to offer an all-wheel-drive option. Sienna was completely redesigned last year to cater to traditional family van needs while also meeting growing demands for more responsive driving character and onboard "infotainment" technology. With state-of the art features and rewarding driving dynamics, the Sienna is a vehicle that current minivan, passenger car and SUV owners will find satisfying to drive. The sporty Sienna SE, for example, combines sportier exterior styling with more dynamic driving performance from a sport-tune suspension system. For 2012 model year the XLE grade adds a standard power passenger seat and auto on/off headlights. The Sienna was primarily designed by Toyota's Calty Design Research, developed at Toyota Technical Center in Ann Arbor, Mich., and assembled at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana. Exterior Design Toyota designed this current-generation Sienna to convey a more distinctive presence in the family van segment. The shape is also functional; a coefficient of drag (Cd) of .306 is low <b>...</b>

  • 2012 Toyota Sienna prueba de manejo

    Descripción en inglés:<br><br> www.autobytel.com Trucks are good at hauling stuff, sports cars are good at hauling buns, and minivans are good at hauling people. The 2012 Toyota Sienna is one of the most popular minivans on the market today. Minivans are definitely not known for their good looks but Toyota managed to inject a bit of sportiness into the design of the Sienna. Up front the Sienna gets the updated signature grill and fog lights that can be found on other popular Toyota vehicles like the Camry. The 18-inch alloy wheels are also a nice touch. Base price for the 2012 Toyota Sienna is $25060 and the highest trim level packed with all the features and options you can image costs $40570. But there are a total of 12 different trims that will meet the needs of most. The 2012 Toyota Sienna comes with a choice of two engine sizes. The first is a 2.7 liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy for this engine is 19 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway. There is a second larger engine offered. This 3.5 liter V-6 engine makes 266 horsepower and 245 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is actually better than the 4-cylinder at 18 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway. This begs the question of why even bother buying the 4-cylinder? Unlike SUVs that try to cram a third row in; minivans are designed from the start with passenger comfort in mind. The 2012 Toyota Sienna has plenty of room for passengers both in the second and third rows. Out back the <b>...</b>

Beyond its stunning exterior, the new Infiniti JX Concept is designed to excel in three areas where luxury crossover buyers put an emphasis -- interior flexibility and roominess, safety, and innovative hospitality features. In the interior, for example, the production Infiniti JX will offer what is expected to be class-leading roominess, along with a 2nd row seat design that tilts and slides forward providing exceptionally easy 3rd row access. The Infiniti JX continues Infiniti's tradition of developing world's first technologies, offering the currently available Blind Spot Intervention and adding a new feature, Backup Collision Intervention. With this technology, when the transmission is in reverse, the JX will help the driver detect crossing objects behind the vehicle and, if necessary, the system will automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision.

  • 2012 Dodge Durango

    With its four-wheel independent suspension, near 50:50 weight distribution and responsive steering and handling, Durango has driving dynamics unlike what you typically find in a sport utility. No other SUV on the road compares with the all-new Dodge Durango's distinctive bold Dodge design that craftily houses a spacious three-row, seven-passenger functional, flexible and premium interior, covered in soft-touch materials. Durango features more than 30 storage areas, 28 seating configurations and a rear cargo area of nearly 85 cubic feet that fits a 6-foot couch with room for coffee table or a 10-foot ladder with the front passenger seat folded flat. Utility may be one of Durango's key attributes, but safety did not take a back seat during development. The 2012 Dodge Durango was recently named a "Top Safety Pick" by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). New for 2012 is an automatic transmission on HEMI® V-8 equipped Durango that allows drivers to choose between six speeds when shifting in manual mode.
