Discouraged, no date on his prom night, his dad hands him the keys of his all new 2013 S3. The courage grew in the heart of the kid as he drove it to prom where he kissed the prom queen and got his ass kicked. Thus the slogan “Bravery is what defines us”. And because no super bowl spot can be without a hashtag these days, this one has #braverywins. Well I find that very lame specially for a superbowl commercial. I mean there is a TV show, “the transporter” in which a driver just drifts the 8 class all over the place to make sure that a package guests delivered on time. They could just have taken some footage from the show and it would have made a better superbowl commercial!!
Other than that, about the S6; it features a detuned version of Audi’s S8 twin-turbo 4.0 liter TFSI V8. Well maybe the engine is detuned but it delivers 420 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque which makes this sedan reach 100km/h in just 4.8 sec. Stunning performance and such a stunning car. Being the small sister of the S8 it has a lot of luxury materials inside the habitat like leather on the seats as well as on the steering wheel. It has adaptive air suspension for a more comfortable drive. In two words, what Audi calls “sporty elegance”.
For this year, VW dropped the Darth Vader thing that they focused on the last two years and opted for a more happy commercial. As for the previous superbowl commercial, the new Beetle is the star of the ad. It features a turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder engine producing 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. This is the same engine that is used for the golf GTI. A Beetle R is being worked on it will most probably be equipped by the same engine that will be tweaked and tuned a bit in order to deliver a couple of extra ponies. For now the Beetle Turbo has really turned from a girls car (with its flour vase that was standard) to a guys car. It’s design has really evolved. Would I’ll buy of of those? Well I think the Beetle still has that girl spirit in it. It would need a couple of years before being accepted by the masculine community.
For the ad, it is a very happy and fresh commercial, I really had a smile on my face at the end of it. The beetles front grill, is sort of smiling at you! Well in this world of chaos and stress and work, we all need a smile from time to time to peace-out 🙂 be happy!!

Like every year, babies are the stars of superbowl commercials. For this Big Game, Kia is answering one of the first embarrassing questions that a child asks his parents, Where do babies come from. A typical conversation that occurs when a family is reunited in a car. This time the answer was quite elaborate. The Kia Sorento, an AWD 7 seater, featured in this video is available with a 3.5 liter V6 engine delivering 276 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. The output power is more than enough to take your kids to the beach on a Saturday afternoon or take them skiing on a Sunday morning. The car looks fine, the ride looks comfy, the new materials used in the car look really good not cheap at all. Kia has really done some amazing improvements to its range of products in these last couple of years. The big advantage of being a South-Korean brand is the price, around 25000$ only! A German 7 seater costs at least three times as much.
Presenting the BMW M135i, one of the hottest and fastest hot hatches available in the market nowadays. It is powered by a 3.0 liters V6 twin turbo charged engine that delivers 320hp and 450 Nm of torque. This sport version of the 1 series will be available in rear wheel drive and in xdrive all wheel drive. This 2012 135i M will be the first 1-series to feature AWD. Now for Christmas, the BMW team will be trying to sing you a Christmas song while riding with Martin Tomczyk, the professional DTM driver, in the brand new BMW 135i M. The result? Well the fastest song in the world!
