In this edition of the series we’re going to look at some of the cool cars coming from the Asian manufacturers in 2014. We start off with Honda. and Toyota together. The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid versus the 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid. So, which of these two fuel sipping sedans is the better buy? In this video, both hybrids are put up against each other to not only see which is the most fuel efficient, but which one is the fastest.
The Nissan Altima is not the most exciting car in the company’s line-up, especially when you think about cars like the GTR or the 370Z. However, the Nissan Altima is a more utilitarian car that gets the job done day in and day out. Nissan has done a good job of tying the styling together throughout the family. The 2014 Nissan Altima does have its sporty cues with the sharp cut headlights, aggressive spindle grille, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Gone is the coupe model leaving behind only the 4-door sedan and its seven different trim levels priced between $21,860 and $30,660.
And, here’s an additional feature on the electronics in the new 2014 Altima, specifically the Vehicle Information Display. Vehicle information is displayed in a monitor located in between the tachometer and the speedometer. The vehicle information display displays items such as:
Trip Computer Information
Drive System Warnings and Settings (if so equipped)
Navigation information (if so equipped)
Cruise Control System Information
NISSAN Intelligent Key Operation Information
Indicators and Warnings
Tire Pressure Information (if so equipped)
And, here’s another exciting entry from Nissan, the 2014 370Z Nismo.
Our last entry for this edition is the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Sedan…

Here’s your chance to catch a glimpse of what’s going on inside each of those fuel injectors that sit atop the engine.
Let’s talk cabin air filters. There seems to be some confusion about them, and I’m going to clear that up right here today. I think much of the confusion comes because prior to the 2000 model year, very few vehicles had cabin air filters. I believe people tend to confuse their cabin air filter with the engine air filter, and I can certainly see how that can happen. Every vehicle has an engine air filter that cleans the air going into the engine, but not all have a cabin air filter that cleans the air going into the passenger compartment. It’s easy to get them mixed up.
