Federal Tax Credit for the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

The 2011 Sonata Hybrid will come with a $1,300 tax credit (if you qualify). Unfortunately, if you're interested, you need to get it now. The tax credit expires at the end of the year. Which means you only have one month to buy the new hybrid which will be available in the beginning of December.

The Hyundai Hybrid received an EPA rating of 36/40 mpg city/highway. That put it below the Ford Fusion Hybrid, which got the full tax credit of $3,400. But then, Ford has already sold the 60,000 hybrid cars that put it over the limit, forcing the tax credits to phase out back in April. Toyota and Honda hybrids ran out of tax credits much sooner than that.

The price has not been released yet on the Sonata Hybrid.

The 2010 Volkswagen Passat ranks 13 out of 18 Affordable Midsize Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of 66 published reviews and test drives of the Volkswagen Passat, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.

The 2010 Volkswagen Passat is an affordable midsize car with an interior that almost belongs in a more expensive class, combined with with suspension tuning that makes it fun to drive and an excellent safety record. However, it's also one of the most expensive midsize cars, particularly when fully loaded with options.

The 2010 VW Passat offers a near-luxury level of refinement, and excellent road manners. It also offers a near-luxury price. Edmunds notes, "For many folks, the Passat fills the gap that exists between normal, humdrum family cars and the financially out-of-reach luxury brands."

Reviewers aren't sure what to make of the car because of that unusual status, floating between affordable and luxury classes. The 2010 Volkswagen Passat, most critics say, is an enjoyable car to drive. It offers a refined, smooth ride, and sharp handling for a family car. Its interior is a step up from those of most Affordable Midsize Cars, with high-quality materials and fine attention to detail.

Its high price, however, can be hard to justify. Volkswagen's midsize car isn't among the class leaders in fuel economy, either -- making it an expensive car to own.
Other Cars to Consider

The Passat is known for its tight handling, but high price. Those looking for a fun-to-drive midsize car might want to consider the Mazda6 or Ford Fusion as well. Both cars offer similar athleticism at a lower price. The all-new Suzuki Kizashi is a bit smaller, but may be the sportiest entry in the midsize category.

Volkswagen loyalists might also want to look closely at VW's other midsize car. The stylish CC uses many of the same parts as the Passat, but offers an even more upscale feel with similar driving dynamics. Many VW dealerships now stock a greater variety of 2010 CCs than Passats.
Volkswagen Passat: The Details

Volkswagen has scaled back Passat production significantly, as the company prepares to replace the aging model. For 2010, Volkswagen will build only a single trim level for the Passat, available as a sedan or wagon. VW offering free scheduled maintenance for the first three years or 36,000 miles on all Passats.

Mansory Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano

Mansory Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
These days everyone has their eyes at Geneva Motor Show and each day we could see a beautiful car. One of the best modified cars from there is a Mansory Ferrari 559 GTB Fiorano. The great tuning company Masonry, that always tried to modify expensive and luxury cars has done a great job again. You would probably say that a Ferrari is nothing without it’s red color but you’ll surely love this one. The car has received the nickname: “Masonry Stallone” after the modifications that were made to this car’s engine. There were a lot of modifications made at this car: some to improve it’s performance and some just to make it more stylish. The new carbon fiber elements installed bring a new, sportier look to this already incredible car but also improve the car’s aerodynamics and handling. But probably the biggest modification the guys from Masonry done is at the car’s engine. The engine can develop now 720 HP, 100 more than before. The car’s speed is incredible: it could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds and it has a breathtaking maximum speed of 340 km/h.

Ferrari 599 GTB

When you imagine a Ferrari you definitely see a red sport car that can break 300 km/h and impress everyone on the road. People might say that a Ferrari that’s not red is not too great but Project Kahn turned a gray Ferrari 599 GTB into a perfect car. The british tuning company modified the car’s suspensions, installed a new exhaust system, 20″ rims for the front part and 21″ rims for the rear part of this car. Probably the rims will turn a lot of heads and since it has smaller rims in the front side the car is more aggressive and has better aerodynamics. The engine wasn’t modified but still this car could reach a top speed of 330 km/h.

Novitec Rosso Ferrari 599 GTB 848 RACE

Novitec Rosso Ferrari 599 GTB 848 RACE
Since the Geneva Motor Show is now underway, Novitec Rosso has released their latest tuning project on the Ferrari 599 GTB called the 848 RACE. Their specialists will only be creating three of these beautifully modified Ferrari 599 GTB models, which are more powerful than the previous Ferrari 599 Fiorano. The Ferrari engine alone could go without any customizations, so the guys at Novitec focused on the exterior styling first. This 848 RACE version of the Ferrari 599 features a new front spoiler lip, rear apron, rear diffuser, custom rear wing, and new rocker panels. These upgrades were installed to improve aerodynamics and cooling to the V12, which received some aftermarket parts.

2013 Range Rover Sportster

Even thought an association between the Range Rover Sport and eco-friendliness might sound ridiculous, the British manufacturer is apparently hard at work on developing the 2013 Range Rover Sport hybrid electric.

The 2013 Range Rover Sport hybrid electric will be badged as the Range_e and will feature an diesel engine backed by an electric motor and of course a battery pack, plus the car will use a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.

The 2013 Range Rover Sport hybrid electric is part to the company's large family of Land Rovers that will be launched in 2013, and it looks like the full hybrid will be launched initially, then a plug-in hybrid is expected to follow in 2015.

The British car maker will begin tests with the 2013 Range Rover Sport hybrid electric at the end of this year.

2011 volvo s60

When Volvo's all-new S60 goes on sale this September, the initial offering will be the top-tier $38,550 T6 with all-wheel drive, 300-horse turbocharged I-6, and six-speed automatic. Volvo, evidently, wants to launch its fresh midsizer with a decided bang. And why not? When replacing its top-selling model, Volvo would be wise to put its best (and most potent) foot forward. And, lest we forget, its best-looking foot, too.

The 2011 S60, 1.0 inch longer, 2.4 wider, and 2.2 taller, somehow manages to appear sleeker and tidier than its predecessor. Chalk it up to Volvo's new "emotionally charged" coupelike silhouette and overall "racetrack" appearance, which refers to the exterior lines' continuous and organic flow, supposedly mimicking vehicles in motion. Whatever's taking place on the sheet metal is working -- the new S60 is as stylish as it is safe.

Inside, the design renaissance continues. Volvo's trademark floating stack, adorned in standard Shimmer Graphite inlays or optional Urbane Wood, now resides front and center, bringing the S60's HVAC and infotainment housing up to date with the brand's other models. Amply bolstered front sport seats are standard, and rear-seat passengers get 2.1 inches of additional legroom. Available options include a $2700 Multimedia Package (backup camera, premium audio, and navigation with traffic updates), a $1500 Premium Package (moonroof, power passenger seat, bi-Xenon headlamps with active bending), and a $2100 Technology Package (adaptive cruise control/lane departure warning/distance alert, collision warning and Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake). For those hauling kids, the S60 also offers an $1800 rear entertainment system with dual DVD players.

Domasco, the exclusive distributor for Volvo cars and trucks in Qatar, has announced that the stunning all-new Volvo S60 had been hailed as the Saloon Car of the Year 2010 at the Car Middle East Awards.
The awards, which honour the best new cars of 2010, and also the biggest achievers of the year in the motoring and motor-sports arena, has run for the last three consecutive years and took place recently at The Westin, in front of a host of the industry’s experts.
The Volvo S60, which made its debut in the Middle East in October, topped the BMW 5-Series and Kia Optima into runner-up positions making its recent launch in the region particularly triumphant, according to Domasco spokesman.
“The sporty design delivers a visual promise of enthusiastic driving characteristics and I can assure you that the all-new S60 truly lives up to that promise. Its driving properties are better than those of any previous Volvo,” said Trevor Fletcher, Sales and Marketing Manager - Volvo Qatar.
