In this day and age, it really is something special to believe that the Koreans can make good cars – we really have to stop that particular thinking though because the brand new 2010 Kia Forte Koup SX is slowly but surely becoming one of my favorite cars. It has grown on me and I can tell you for sure that it is going to be a beauty.
Kia has actually been in the states for about 16 years now and I think that they have actually exceeded a lot of our expectations when these cool cats came onto the market at first. Kia is known for offering up cheap, good cars but how good are they really?
Well, the 2010 Kia Forte Koup SX proves that they are actually some of the best and certainly work well if your needs are pretty simple!

When you think about it – this year has been all about green cars. The automakers have completely switched their gears and have moved themselves from gas-guzzlers to completely gas-free cars. Electric cars are here and they are coming in bulks.
To be honest, I think that this is the best – the very best idea ever – an electric car. The cool thing about electric cars is that they open up an entire new market and if you buy one, you might actually be eligible for discounts with your car insurance company.
If you are looking to save a little cash this year, an electric car might be the answer to all of your prayers!

Way back when, when the cars were all of the rage and SUVs were really nothing … the Toyota Land Cruiser was created. Well, I have to tell you that this little SUV has actually been released just in the UK but in 2010 – that all changes. The Toyota Land Cruiser is going to be coming to America, finally.
While back in the day the Toyota Land Cruiser was all about sharp edges, it has now gained quite a body and certainly an interior that is pretty damn cool. In recent generations, it has also become more luxurious, which from Toyota, that is a big step.
So if you are looking for the latest and greatest from Toyota in the states this year – the Toyota Land Cruiser is certainly the best!

If you are the type of person that has been waiting … and waiting and waiting for a brand new VW to come out … here is a sneak preview for you! The Frankfurt Motor Show is right around the corner and seriously – the brand new Volkswagen Golf R20 had to leak out at some point right? This car – while it might have a small fan base in the US is certainly gaining more and more attention.
The Volkswagen Golf R20 is going to be powered up with all sorts of upgrades and feature a 2.0L engine with 265 HP and 258 lb-ft, likely the exact same engine as the Scirocco R20 and it is all kinds of awesome!
To me – VW is the best brand in the world – the cars last and to be perfectly honest, they look incredible. So if you are looking for something chic and inexpensive – VW is always the best option!

We all know that Ford is paving the way for hybrid cars it seems. While I know that Toyota is the company that came up with them (pretty much right?), I think that Ford is definitely coming up with some pretty interesting things. While personally, Ford is last on my list for cars, I think that the brand new 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid is a car that deserves a third look … because yes, it is actually a car that I have done some research on, dismissed and now it is back!
First, let’s start with the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid’s look – it does not look like a regular Ford car and that is something that I love … I hate how Ford cars look usually, however, the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid is definitely a brand new looks for Ford. Another thing that I like is that it has about 43.1 miles per gallon, which is something that I definitely look for.
If you are looking for a car – the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid is going to be it … seriously.

If there is one thing that I have learned from writing this blog, it is that you really need to look at the prices of the cars that you buy … and really look at the style of the car and the brand that you are going to be purchasing. For example, the 2010 Kia Forte Koup is one car that I absolutely fell in love with … not only for the price but also the overall style of it. This particular car is going to be one of the freshest faces for the Kia family and I have to say that I love that!
The overall style of the 2010 Kia Forte Koup is definitely interesting and fresh. I love the tires, the body kit and the fact that it is two doors. Inside, the car is going to be completely different than most other cars – the entire design on the inside is brand new and you are going to have to wait to see it!
The 2010 Kia Forte Koup will be available by the end of August the beginning of September and that is so exciting! So watch out for it … you’ll love it at first glance, I promise!

If there is one thing that I know about the auto world right now, it is the fact that Ford is actually on top right now. While they might not be on top in the sales department, they are on top in the meaning that they are not the ones that went under and filed for bankruptcy at all and they keep improving and coming out with damn affordable and damn sexy cars! Take the 2010 Ford Flex with EcoBoost. This crossover car is definitely going to be one of the best as soon as it comes out.
The 2010 Ford Flex with EcoBoost is actually one of the very first Fords to get the Ecoboost power and it is going to have a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine. It will be all-wheel drive and it is going be run about 16 to 22 miles per gallon on the gas front, which to me for a crossover vehicle that big is actually pretty cool.
Ford is switching up their style and that is something that I love … while I am not a fan of Ford, they are slowly but surely bringing me around!
If there is one thing that I have noticed about Ford, it is that their prices have gone way down. Normally, for a sports car of the Mustang’s class, you are going to be shelling out at least thirty grand right? Not anymore! Nowadays, Ford has lowered their prices down and you can get the 2010 Mustang Base Coupe for just over twenty thousand dollars, which is a fantastic price for a sports car that looks great and feels fantastic.
Some of the 2010 Mustang Base Coupe’s specs include: 4,009 cc 4.0 liters V 6 front engine with 100.4 mm bore, 84.4 mm stroke, 9.7 compression ratio, overhead cam and two valves per cylinder 99N, 16.1 gallon main unleaded fuel tank 13.4 and finally, the power at a remarkable 157 kW, 210 HP SAE at 5,300 rpm; 240 ft lb, 325 Nm at 3,500 rpm. All of that for just over twenty grand? Remarkable price!
