  • Mazda's new MX-5 delivers pure driving enjoyment
    Zoom with a view

    As summer press cars go, I was starting to lose hope. It seemed crossovers, hybrids and subcompacts were conspiring against my hopes of getting some great summer rides this year. Then mid-August rolled around, and a droptop BMW 2 Series showed up at my door. Now we're cooking with gas. But …

  • New SUV features significant upgrades, even if it looks hauntingly familiar
    Escape from L.A.

    LOS ANGELES -- Is the SUV going to be the normal of a new generation? Just look at Ford, for example. It says it's on target to sell 500,000 SUVs in Canada in 2015, or nearly a third of the entire market. Even more interesting, Ford says in a few …

  • Stiff, stripped down and pricey: 2016 Porsche Boxster Spyder a purist's dream car
    Minimum rage

    In terms of stress relief, there's nothing like a crisp fall day, with the sun shining and the leaves changing, to make you want to jump into your convertible, flip back the top and go for a cruise, maybe even a couple of hundred kilometres or so. But what if it's …

  • Successor to GLK brings panache, performance
    Crossover to luxury

    ATLANTA -- In 1993, a 35-year-old rocker from Minnesota changed his name from a mononym to an unpronounceable symbol, making him the Artist Formerly Known As Prince. In 2015, in an effort to bring order to what was, apparently, chaos, Mercedes-Benz is changing the name of some of its SUVs, giving …

  • Ford Escape still one to beat in crossover market
    Most valuable player

    The third generation Ford Escape crossover, now in its fourth year, is a bit of a sales anomaly: Despite it being a "mature" product in a saturated market, where the newest and shiniest usually get the attention and the sales volume, the compact-sized Escape remains the king of the hill. Though …

  • Redesigned Optima a refined, drama-free family sedan loaded with features
    Style to spare

    ASPEN, Colo. -- "Lots of 'rich people rules' around here," my passenger said, noting the abundance of thou-shalt-nots posted around the town. Postcard quaint and reeking of casually affected affluence, the resort town of Aspen is home to more than 50 billionaires. It's hard to imagine "gonzo journalism" founder Hunter S. …

  • Smart ED an electrifying automotive home run
    Battery up!

    When the Smart Fortwo was launched, it quickly became the biggest thing in small. I won't say I hated it, but my feelings for it were certainly leaning toward that end of the emotional spectrum. The combination of the gas motor and sequential gearbox meant if you didn't switch to manual …

  • Subaru Impreza no-frills, affordable AWD car
    Gaining traction

    There's no question the Subaru name is synonymous with all-wheel-drive. What's less obvious is how many of those in the market for an affordable new ride know there's an all-wheel drive option that is also a car? Put four driven wheels and a sub-$30,000 price tag at the top of your …

  • It's built by Mazda, but the new Yaris is a winner
    The Toyota that isn't

    QUEBEC CITY -- This is the best Toyota Mazda ever built. It's the 2016 Toyota Yaris sedan, an all-new Yaris and a departure for Yaris in many ways. For one, it feels almost as large as a Corolla, and secondly, it isn't the morphing of a hatchback into a -- let's …

  • Gearhead concession: new Explorer not a truck, I'm OK with that

    Since I never watched Breaking Bad, failed science and the closest I've ever come to meth is the sweet smell of nitromethane spewing from the exhaust pipe of a vintage dragster, as usual I don't have a hot clue what Kelly Taylor is talking about. That said, I purely understand his …
