What's in our Car Town garage today? (December 23, 2012)

2011 Fisker Karma

Fisker Automotive is an American carmaker based in Anaheim, California, founded in 2007. The maiden car for the brand is a plug-in hybrid sports saloon car known as Karma. As a pure series hybrid car, it was powered by a pair of 120 kW (161 hp) electric motors that get their power from a 20 kWh lithium ion battery supplied by A123 Systems. If the driver engages Sport mode or if the battery's out of charge, the 2.0L petrol engine kicks in, generating 260HP of power.

2011 Nissan Juke

With a name so awkwardly weird, Nissan seems to be quite so serious when it comes to making this ROCK 'N SMALL compact crossover, which was designed in Britain and produced at its Oppama plant in Japan. It was the first model in the lineup to come with their newly developed 1.6 L MR16DDT Turbo I4 engine that churns out 190PS of power, mated to an XTRONIC CVT.

2011 BMW Z4

"Actually it doesn't feel like a pair of turbos at all. This is like a pair of testes! Big, meaty ones!" Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear explains how the twin turbos on the E89 BMW Z4 feels like and it is...sort of. It maybe more of a civilized hardtop roadster that was now made even more comfortable but don't be fooled by how it feels because on the road, the Z4 E89 really likes to take things very seriously.
