The one thing I love about the current Azera is that it is classy and actually looks expensive, this one is quite different but from these images have to say it will be great succesor .I find that to be a very ignorant comment. Hyundai has made leaps and bounds in the last couple years. I would buy one of their cars over any Japanese rival (Toyota, Honda).
The automaker did not reveal any specifics about the car, but they did say it will share in the Hyundai "fluidic sculpture" design language. As expected, the renderings distributed by the automaker make the vehicle
A good example of "budget engineering" This is why GM went bankrupt in first place, and Toyota wants to copy that too! People no longer are interested in the quality of the brands, they are interested in the quality of the car! Thats why a Korean car might have better quality than a Nippon one. If you let me choose, I'll go with the new Ford Focus hatch.
Transmissions available are a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic gearbox. The new Corolla has a mileage rating of 28 mpg city (8.4 liters/100 km) and 35 mpg (6.72 liters/100 km) highway with the manual box. Consumption is slightly better with the 4-speed automatic (26 mpg / 34 mpg).

Overall the car was great however, when we picked the car up the alignment was off so it had to back in the shop. Second, the paint is starting to get very small rust spots all over the body which after using my finger nail, I discovered their coming off. What's troubling is the silver trim under the windows has small rust spots as well which are not coming off. We paid an extra $500 for that paint and it's disappointing to have your first new car with these cosmetic problems. I'm expecting more in the future so it's good that I have a good warranty.

Honda brings its 250 sportbike to the South Asia (Indonesia, Thailand, malaysia) with the new 2011 Honda CBR250R. "This is really an amazing machine we're adding to Honda's list of models for 2011," said Honda Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. "The CBR250R is specifically aimed at new riders, yet it's packed full of high-tech features and offers great performance, all in a lightweight, affordable package. This new model expands another segment of the market for Honda buyers." True, the 250 power and performance may not generate as much excitement as near 200 horsepower production Superbikes, but the little CBR250R is Honda’s biggest news in the 2011 sportbike model lineup. The new CBR’s chassis features a non-adjustable 37mm fork, with Honda’s Pro-link rear suspension offering five-position preload adjustment. Steering geometry consists of a 25-degree rake and 95mm (3.74 inches) trail. Wheelbase is 53.9 inches, while seat height rings in at 30.9 inches. A small bike, th e CBR250 rolls on street standard 17-inch wheels, with a claimed curb weight of 359 pounds (Ninja 250 375 pounds).
Stylewise the new CBR looks an awful lot like the new VFR1200, particularly the layered fairing. Instrumentation behind the tallish windscreen is an analog tach sitting atop a digital speedo, which is centered on the blue backlit LCD area.
The biggest question mark with the little Honda is its price tag, which is still to be determined. Kawasaki’s Ninja 250R retails for $3999. Recently speaking with Kawasaki reps, we learned the Japanese marque is willing to break even on the 250 with the rationale that a Ninja 250 purchase today equals a Ninja ZX-6R or ZX-10R purchase tomorrow. And how integral is the Ninja 250 in the Kawasaki lineup? It’s the top-selling unit!
Big Red will offer up an CBR250R which utilizes the companies combined ABS technology.
True, the 250 power and performance may not generate as much excitement as near 200 horsepower production Superbikes, but the little CBR250R is Honda’s biggest news in the 2011 sportbike model lineup. The CBR250R will be built in Thailand and launched globally in November.

Triple power churns inside the F3 courtesy of a 675cc three-cylinder mill. The internal architecture is forthcoming, but the displacement and configuration are notably identical to Triumph’s Daytona 675 supersport. The Triple powerplant, though most associated now with Triumph (as well as MV’s Italian brethren Benelli), harkens a return to MV’s illustrious racing past with 10 of its 37 world titles won by three-cylinder powerplants. MV claims the return to the engine configuration comes straight from the boss himself, Claudio Castiglioni, who once again holds full ownership of the brand after its purchase from Harley-Davidson.
