When it comes to driving, most automotive experts prefer cars that have excellent handling and performance, especially when they are fun to drive. This mindset is behind Automobile Magazine's 2012 All-Star awards. The 10 vehicles named All-Stars run the gamut from economy vehicles like the Ford Focus and the Honda Odyssey to luxury sports cars like the Ferarri 458 Italia and Spyder.
The Audi TT RS was named an All-Star vehicle for its impressive all-wheel drive capabilities and precision steering. Plus, the 2.5-liter TFSI engine boasts 360 horsepower, 343 lb-ft. of torque and can easily push the car from zero to 60 in just over four seconds. The car comes standard on specially-designed 19-inch high-gloss wheels with summer performance tires, and the wheels can be upgraded to have either a titanium finish or a black and red color scheme.
However, whether you're driving the high-class Audi TT RS or a standard Ford Focus, it won't matter how well the car performed when it left the dealership for the first time. Without proper car maintenance, no vehicle will be able to deliver peak performance. Simple tune up options such as oil changes and tire rotation can improve your vehicle and make it feel like new.
