2012 Kia Soul review on Bullz-Eye

Read what Bullz-Eye.com had to say about the 2012 Kia Soul!

The 2012 Kia Soul is the result of a good thing that just keeps getting better. Kia continued the out-of-the-box fresh looks of the Soul and refined the interior and more power under the hood. You can’t help but have a good time driving the Soul, and at a reasonable sticker price, the good times keep rolling!

Exterior
Our test model was unique looking from the alien green paint and the Soul is easily distinguishable from the other models with exclusive projector headlamps with front LED accents and LED taillights complemented by stunning new 18-inch alloy wheels. For 2012, the Soul’s exterior design has been updated with subtle changes to front and rear fascias to project a wider stance, while new auto on/off projection headlamps, taillights, side mirrors and wheels project a more modern look. Our test model also sported a power tilt sunroof, fog lights and a finished product that says “modern good looks.”

2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4×4 review on Bullz-Eye

Bullz-Eye.com reviewed the 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4×4. Check out what they said about the ride below!

There is simply no mistaking the 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4X4 on the road, and for those that own these modern day Tonka Trucks, I’m sure that puts a smile on your face. Toyota took a chance with the FJ Cruiser with the dynamic styling, and when you consider how conservative Toyota has been in the past, it’s a good step forward.

Exterior
Our test model was decked out with 17-inch steel alloy wheels, two-toned paint in Army Green and white roof top, black bumpers with metallic silver trim, black over-fenders with integrated mudguards, silver trim door handles and mirrors, skid plates, power outside mirrors with illuminated markers, rear privacy glass, running boards, daytime running lights, engine transfer case and tow hooks with two front and one rear. Toyota embraced the styling from the iconic FJ40 4×4 utility vehicle which is well known for safaris and serious off-road capabilities. The look of the 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4X4 celebrates the spirit of the FJ40 with features including a front grille with two round, five-inch headlights reminiscent of the FJ40’s frontal styling; the hood and fender contours; and a rear-mounted and exposed full-size spare tire with an off-center license plate mount. The overall look of the FJ Cruiser is top of the line in the cool department!

Lincoln makes a move with the MKS

It’s now or never for Lincoln to make it’s comeback and the redesigned MKS will help the revival. We’re looking forward to test driving the Lincoln MKS to see the future ride and handling of the Lincoln brand.

From the Detroit News:

Lincoln took another step in its self-described journey back toward luxury car credibility Friday when it allowed the motoring press its first chance to drive the refreshed 2013 MKS.

The full-size sedan has received more than a cosmetic makeover. Lincoln’s flagship got major suspension improvements, including a continuously controlled damping system that had the big car dancing Friday on the undulating roads of Ford’s Michigan Proving Grounds.

The new, more refined styling and interior of the 2013 MKS were revealed in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The MKS remains first a luxury car, quiet and well-appointed with all the latest electronic infotainment offerings.

More powerful engines, more efficient brakes and touch-of-a-button suspension adjustments that offer “normal,” “sport” and “comfort” settings put the MKS closer to its competition.

Volkswagen explores ways to be fuel efficient and fun

Bullz-Eye.com checked out Volkswagen to explore ways the company is trying to be fuel efficient.

Car enthusiasm boils down to the enjoyment of the drive. All you need is a car you enjoy, a twisty road and some exciting scenery. But the scenery aspect always seems to be left out – the natural backdrop that turns an average drive into a memory. A drive through California will remind you just how important nature is to enjoying a car, and how to make cars not adversely affect the world we live in. No, this article will not be an environmental screed if you were wondering, but it will highlight how VW and other car manufacturers are keeping the joys of motoring while taking into account the preservation of the planet.

The GTI and Golf R are pretty good examples of how far automakers have pushed the envelope, balancing performance with green friendliness. Don’t be mistaken, neither of these cars are hybrids. The GTI and Golf R both share turbocharged 4 cylinder engines, but the R dials up the power and is equipped with 4Motion AWD. But it was the GTI that I took the keys to start the day.
