2012 Kio Rio SX review on Bullz-Eye

Bullz-Eye.com reviewed the 2012 Kia Rio SX. Check out what they had to say about the ride!

Kia decided on a new skin for the 2012 Kia Rio SX that clearly resembles the family of cars and SUVs on the road with the Kia logo. That is a good thing as the new Rio is very attractive and the smallest offering from Kia in 2012.

Exterior
The signal red paint looked expensive on the Kia Rio SX and coupled with the flashy 17-inch tires, first impressions are good here my friends. The new look of the Rio is very stylish for a car that starts at $13,400 and our SX grabbed some notable looks from admirers. Included on our test model exterior were auto on/off headlights, LED positioning lights and tail lights, front fog lights and heated power folding mirrors with turn signal indicators. The 2012 Kia Rio SX is definitely one of the best looking B-cars on the road today.

New Shelby Mustang 1000 to be revealed at NY Show

Things are heating up in the battle for horsepower supremacy and the 2012 Shelby Mustang 1000 seems to be the new champ. The 1000 moniker is there for the obvious reason with a staggering 1000 horses and that’s not a misprint my friends!

From Autoblog.com:

For some, the horsepower wars being waged by auto manufacturers over the past few years are getting a bit out of hand. A 550-hp factory Camaro? A 650-hp factory Mustang? Ridiculous. But if you count massive amounts of gas-guzzling horsepower and torque a crime (we don’t), then the worst of all offenders is perhaps Shelby. Last year at the New York Auto Show, the company unveiled its most powerful creation to date: the 2012 GT500 Super Snake, with up to 800 horsepower. And while 800 hp is just bonkers, Shelby’s next trick is even more insane.

Bullz-Eye.com reviews the 2013 Infiniti JX

Bullz-Eye.com received the opportunity to review the 2013 Infiniti JX and below is what they had to say about the ride.

The crossover market is exploding, and CUVs with three rows are getting more popular as buyers with families look for options that can fit the kids and more adults.

We first saw Infiniti’s planned entry in this segment last year when they unveiled the all-new Infiniti JX concept at the Concours D’Elegance at Pebble Beach. We were impressed then with the look of this all-new vehicle, and last week we had the opportunity to drive it at the Infiniti drive event in picturesque Charleston, South Carolina.

The new JX is targeting buyers with kids who don’t want to sacrifice luxury and style, filling a gap in Infiniti’s crossover and SUV portfolio. The designers also emphasized space and flexibility in the interior along with cutting edge safety features.

Exterior

The exterior of the JX looks sleek and stylish and is consistent with the design language we’ve come to expect from Infiniti, including the distinctive LED tail lamps. It’s a far cry from some of the boxier or bulkier vehicles from competitors that sport three rows. One new feature that we’ll be seeing more of is the crescent shaped rear side window which adds a nice touch to the vehicle. Overall, the look is a real winner that should be a huge hit with the target market.

Lotus Teams Up With Mansory

Lotus has not had the smoothest of attempts to become a first class supercar producer. For example, they hired Swiss Beatz as a “brand ambassador.” So far, every move they make continue to drive home the point that they don’t want to make cars at all, just apparel with obnoxious branding on it.

Now, Lotus is taking another ill-aimed marketing swing with Mansory, producers of garish, ghastly aftermarket equipment. You may not know the name, but their products can be seen on an terribly modified Bentley, Porsche, Mercedes, etc.

Lotus is teaming up with Mansory for “bodywork, trim and special finishes” for their current product portfolio. The full result of this match-up won’t be seen until the Paris Auto Show, but I can guarantee that there will be outrage over it. Or, maybe Danny Bahar is just trolling auto enthusiasts and there is not partnership at all. What will actually be debuted in Paris is a proper successor to the Elise. One can only hope.
