Toyota RAV4 car at Los Angeles Auto Show 2013.
Toyota RAV4 car Los Angeles Auto Show 2013. RAV4’s powertrain should be much more evolutionary than those made to the crossover’s styling. Unlike many of its mid-size competitors, the latest Camry sedan retained its optional six-cylinder engine instead of moving to a four-cylinder-only lineup. Therefore, we expect the RAV4 to keep its brawny six; the current base engine, a 179-hp, 2.5-liter four, should carry over as well. The current RAV4’s four-cylinder still utilizes a four-speed automatic—whew, that’s a lot of “fours”—and it’s possible that Toyota will drop in a six-speed to improve fuel economy. The same upgrade could be in store for the V-6, which presently backs up to a five-speed auto.

Audi S3 at Los Angeles Auto Show 2013. Most stunning and of interest to the enthusiast crowd is the new S3. It looks great in person! It is definitely smaller than the B8 A4/S4 and more reminiscent of the B5 platform in size. I expect it to be very nimble and quick. It should prove to be more than sufficient for a younger 20-30s professional who only occasionally have rear seat occupancy. The car is technologically advanced with 4G LTE connectivity for MMI, it gets great mileage, boasts almost 300 hp, and has an amazing refined and beautiful interior.

In the review, we noted that although peak torque with the 3.6-liter V-6 arrives at a higher rpm than the previous V-6, there was no noticeable difference when off-roading, which proved to be more fun than before. While the 2014 Jeep Wrangler may continue to be a good seller for the brand, EPA-rated fuel economy that tops out at 21 mpg on the highway could be a problem in the future
