Reviewed: 2012 Toyota Prius C

 

Back in January we went down to Florida to do a first drive on the new Toyota Prius C, the latest member of the Prius family within Toyota.  While we didn't get to spend much time with the car on that drive, we came away with a good first impression.  That impression was that the Prius C felt like a car first and a hybrid second.
Now we've spent a week with the car, and the question is, good car, or just another hybrid gimmick.  Let's dive in a see if Toyota has come up with a hybrid that a non-hybrid lover would drive.  Make sure you check out our full photo gallery below the video.

Reviewed: 2013 Ford Mustang V6

If you've followed this blog for any time, you know that we are huge Mustang fans.  We've owned in the past an 83 GT, a 92 LX 5.0 Notchback and our current Supercharged 95GT.  What we wanted to know was is this modern V6 Mustang something close to what the 5.0 LX was back in the day, or is it just a secretary's car?

Lets dive in and take a look!  Also make sure that you check out our full gallery of pictures.

Reviewed: 2012 Audi A6

You often find that cars the automotive media hype endlessly, never live up to that billing.  Few cars in the last two or three years have been hyped as much as the Audi A6, and, while the car has been out for almost a year now, and few bad things have been said about it to date.  We had the new A6 come in for testing recently and had the opportunity recently to findout for ourselves just how good this car could be.  Have a watch, and enjoy!

Here is the full range of pictures that we shot fo the car.

Reviewed: 2012 Kia Optima Turbo

Ten months ago when we had the non-Turbo version of the Optima in for review, we declared it the best sedan on the market for under $30,000.  With the Turbo model we wanted to see if it could be even better.  So here on Rumblestrip.NET we are taking a look at the 2012 Kia Optima Turbo.
