Volkswagen commercial: “Crash”

The new 2012 Passat features a 2.5L in-line 5 cylinder engine which delivers 170hp. Personally  I prefer the 2009 version of the Passat I think its prettier. The CC has a very nice look. I am not a big fan of the new face lift of this new model.

I already mentioned the 2012 Passat when it was first introduced with the “The Force” commercial featuring Darth Vader. Contrary to the Darth Vader superbowl ad, I find that this commercial is trying to prove something, that this car is safe. The Passat presents most of its safety features as standards. Which is nothing special when we are talking about VW. I like the simple and original was in which the “safety” aspect of the car is presented.

SLS FedererThe introduction of the new SLS 2012 AMG by Roger Federer. That ad sounds a little far-fetched but do like it. The SLS AMG features a 6.2L V8 engine delivering 563hp/ 479lb-ft of torque. I find the roadster edition of the SLS really nice. Mercedes did there best to add the soft top without affecting the performance of the car by adding weight. The result was an add of just 88 pounds to the car’s total weight thanks to the use of very light but strong aluminium in the composition of the convertible mechanism.
