2010 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4X4 Review

Massive. The exact word that struck me first, I went to the Toyota 4Runner 2010 days of departure.

 2010 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4X4
What was the prototype compact SUV has been on the pack pounds and the new style, like when you stamp on top of all that loose.

No, I'm not alone. Sajeev Mehta seems closer to the truth about cars felt the same ... He wrote: "It looks like fat Elvis on four wheels."

Everything that goes directly into the mass of the driving experience. As Casey Kasem outtake said in his famous "great man ... seriously. 270 hp feels no more than sufficient to leave in order to overcome the inertia of the machine £ 4400 ... and the estimate of 17 city/22 highway EPA, you me know if you see him, right? Here in this blog, we get surprisingly close, and sometimes higher than the EPA estimates ... but the best that could be done by us, was 16 in a mixture of roads and highways. Without the highway, 13-point or 14-something would have happened to him.

 2010 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4X4 RiviewThe interior is designed to reduce the size to give weight, volume ... almost as if the idea of the 4Runner in a junior version of the Land Cruiser to convert. But we love the Land Cruiser .... above all, because that's what it should be. Oh, and the EPA is 13 city/18 highway ... that's about all 4Runner is carried on the testimony of our week.

Ours was the SR5 4x4 ... a reasonable base price $ 30,915 ... Option with an upgrade of the audio system ($ 585), rear view camera (a must for the car at $ 525), a number of amenities, sunroof, front and rear plus rear AC outlets ($ 1,050), the leather seats and power sliding doors with extra airbags ($ 3.570) mats and cargo mats ($ 204). With $ 800 for shipping, the bottom line $ 37,649.

 2010 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4X4 Interior pictureNo outrageous for this level of equipment. If it was in the '09 4Runner, I would not blink. But it seems a little change, that seems to go for a vehicle in the wrong direction at the wrong time.

Mercedes Benz GLK350 Review

 Mercedes Benz GLK350 Mercedes Benz GLK350 Picture Mercedes Benz GLK350 InteriorWhat a difference a decade.

seriously 10 years ago, Mercedes-Benz affect his image with the introduction of what was then a small SUV ML320 .. the. It cost somewhere in the middle of the 30s, they take in a new market segment, but was an important step in what people expect from Mercedes in materials and workmanship.

An even smaller SUV should be more reason to despair, is not it? No, not now.

You see, Mercedes as a whole has followed the law of the ML320 garden path ... leading to a decade-Benz less than all of the specific model names ... even some whose prices are surprisingly high.

The good news is that MB appears in the bite with some products that seem to draw his bar to higher market share ... It is in this environment, GLK350 force.

Size? Think somewhere between a Ford Escape and Ford Explorer.

Price? The base is a reasonable price of $ 35,900. For that you get power to a 268 V6 with a seven-speed automatic transmission, leading to EPA, about 16 miles per gallon city/21 highway.

Best of all, it feels firmer than the LMA has never ... and if at 10 high-quality options (premium light package, Media package, Sport Appearance Package) does not seem too stupid or too much because, well, it's a Mercedes loaded. Must be a notch above other things.

to pay for years, people a premium for Mercedes-Benz quality and technology, is not the board itself. When the days are back, we are all better off.


This applies to all-wheel drive GLK. Select the model of two-wheel-drive, and the base price is $ 34.600 reduced ... making it one of the cheapest Benz you can buy. And because the ML 320 1998 $ 33.900, is incredible. Fuel consumption remains unchanged in the city, but improved to 22 on the road.

A recent campaign in the two-wheel-drive model strengthens the previous revision to all four wheels. And this time, Mercedes was only about 8,000 in options (premium multimedia package and the iPod interface) ... so under the dash for $ 875 shipping and handling was $ 42.925.
