Are you ready to buy a new car? Here are some cars to consider.
2009 Nissan GT-R
If someone asked “what is your dream car?” What would it be? My answer would be 2009 Nissan GT-R or Nissan Skyline. For me, it delivers true supercar performance in a user-friendly package. He has face-distorting acceleration, world-class handling, low MSRP, and also exceptionally easy to drive. The 2009 Nissan GT-R replete with a twin-turbocharged V6 engine, all-wheel drive ad legendary Skyline heritage.
The 2009 Nissan GT-R specs are impressive. I love this car and really want have one. Nissan has built the most production engine. It looks tough; the look and feel of the interior is impressive. I really love this car!
Another review that I read about 2009 Nissan GT-R is also boasts a trick multifunction performance monitor that features 11 different informational displays. This monitor was developed in consultation with Polyphony Digital, Gran Turismo video game franchise. The engine makes big power and creates Nissan Gtr as graceful as it is powerful. For me, 2009 Nissan GT-R is one of the best performance cars ever!
2010 Audi S5
Audi calls its new 2010 Audi S5 Cabriolet a real convertible, in defense of its sporting a soft-top in an era of hard-top-equipped competition. There are some advantages to the cloth top–the 2010 Audi S5 roof opens completely in 15 seconds (7 less than a BMW 335i Convertible) and at speeds up to 31 mph. It doesn't weigh as much, and it doesn't sacrifice trunk space the way a hard-top does. If it's noise you're worried about, the 2010 Audi S5 comes standard with Audi's Acoustics Roof, which is said to reduce noise levels "almost to the sedan level."
While the 2010 Audi S5 Coupe will remain V8-powered for another year, the convertible is already packed with the supercharged V6 of the new S4. The direct-injected powerplant has a 10.3:1 compression ratio and ingests 11.6 psi of boost pressure from a screw-type supercharger mounted atop the engine. Despite making 11 hp less than the V8, the supercharged engine produces 23 lb-ft more torque (325 lb-ft) over a broader range (2900 to 5300 rpm). The result is a claimed 0-to-62 time of 5.62 seconds. The new engine is also capable of more than 24 mpg, according to Audi.
The 2010 Audi S5 Convertible will only be available with Audi's seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (S Tronic), and the Quattro all-wheel-drive system now has a 40:60 torque distribution, to help mimic rear-wheel-drive handling. Going further toward that goal, the company's new Sport Differential, optional, shuffles torque between the rear wheels to eradicate understeer.
Check the box for Audi's Drive Select, and you'll be able to vary steering and throttle response, shock stiffness, transmission shift points, and even the tenacity of the aforementioned sport differential with the push of a button. And as you'd expect, that's just the beginning of the gadgetry.
2010 Audi S4
Since 1997, Audi has offered the S4 -- a sedan fitted with a sport-themed interior, more power, and a sharper suspension than its A4 -- as an option for those who include canyon-carving as part of their commute. And just as the base A4 got a complete revamp for 2009, now Audi is following up with a leadfoot-friendly S4 that includes a new engine, transmission, quattro system, and sport differential with customized torque distribution, along with upgraded styling, a freshened interior, and more tech goodies. Previously Audi moved the S4 from twin-turbo V-6 to a 4.2L V-8 boasting 340 hp in a bid for more output, but it looks as though worries about gas mileage and CO2 emissions are finally causing the automaker to blink. Returning to its forced-induction roots, the new 2010 Audi S4 has a supercharged 3.0L V-6 under the hood, which is down 7 hp from last year's model.
Of course, mere horsepower figures don't always tell the whole story. In developing its all-new 3.0L TFSI V-6, Audi says it found supercharging a better solution than returning to twin turbos for both packaging and performance, and a version of this engine will also be available in the midsize 2009 A6 (though with just 290 hp). One of the primary benefits of the new powerplant is its impressive torque, for, along with 333 hp, it offers a full 324.5 lb-ft of twist, an upgrade from the 302 lb-ft available in the previous generation's V-8. In addition, maximum torque comes on at just 2500 rpm and remains constant through 4850 rpm, making the car especially responsive in everyday driving (as an example, Audi cites a 50 to 75-mph time of 4.4 sec), and while some may miss the previous S4's V-8 rumble, in fact at 5.1 sec the new model is actually a couple ticks faster from 0 to 62 mph.
That said, Audi names its competition for the 2010 Audi S4 as BMW's M3 and the Mercedes' C63 AMG, but with both those cars sporting V-8s in excess of 400 hp, and 0-to-62 times just north of four seconds, they seem like better rivals for the current V-8-powered RS4 instead. But Ingolstadt's latest creation does have one significant advantage: Besides being quicker than its predecessor and having more torque, one of the new S4's biggest improvements can be seen at the gas pump. While the 2008 S4 is rated by the EPA at just 16 mpg combined, thanks to its TFSI V-6 Audi estimates the new model will yield a fairly impressive 24-plus mpg highway -- close to the 3.2L A4. Enthusiasts may be less concerned with fuel economy than the average commuter, but with the current instability of gas prices, no doubt many will welcome the improvement.
2010 Ford Flex
The 2010 Ford Flex lineup gains a telescoping function for its steering wheel and a new engine with more available power. Introduced for the 2009 model year, this boxy 4-door wagon shares some of its basic design with Ford's Edge crossover SUV. Flex comes in three trim levels: base SE, mid-level SEL, and top-line Limited. All offer front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available on the SEL and Limited. Flex is distinguished not only by its squared-off shape but also by contrasting roof and body colors and use of exterior chrome accents. Flex seats either six or seven on three rows of seats. A 262-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine is standard on all Flex models. The AWD SEL and Limited are available with a 355-hp turbocharged 3.5-liter V6. Versions so equipped are called "EcoBoost" and are priced as separate models.
EcoBoost-equipped Flex models also include several specific features including steering-wheel mounted shift paddles and a grade assist function for the transmission, electric power steering with "Pull-Drift Compensation," and a self-parking feature. Both engines pair with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Maximum towing capacity is 4500 lb., and when equipped with the optional tow package, a trailer sway control system is included. Available safety features include ABS, traction control, antiskid system, front side airbags, and curtain side airbags. A rearview camera, power liftgate, voice-activated navigation system with real-time traffic and weather updates, four-panel glass roof, and refrigerated center console are available. Other available features include Ford's Sync voice-activated control for some cell phones and MP3 players and a capless fuel filler.
