  • Elantra among innovative vehicles elevating Hyundai to new heights
    Serious business

    VICTORIA -- "How do you double the value of a Hyundai? Fill the tank." "Why are Hyundai owner's manuals so thick? Because they include a bus schedule." This wasn't just some sot at some open-mike night, either; this was Don Romano, president of Hyundai Auto Canada, cracking one-liners courtesy of Jay Leno …

  • Honda's new Pilot makes road trip entertaining and enjoyable
    Family approved

    I've recently had a few heated discussions regarding the styling of Honda's redesigned Pilot. Those who found the old model too square welcome its slippery new profile. I actually liked the old Pilot because it stood out from the crowd -- it was just boxy enough to be instantly recognizable. Now, …

  • New Toyota Camry a solid choice

    wIt's easy to dismiss this latest Camry as yet another vanilla mid-sized sedan for those who drive because they have to, not because they want to. But Toyota is out to change the perception that it builds good--but boring--cars for the masses. 2015 saw a mid-cycle refresh for the popular mid-sized …

  • Big, thirsty and expensive SUV provides outstanding utility, but it's just too much for everyday city driving
    Cabin cruiser

    A full-sized, high-end sport ute with more features and doodads than you can shake a stick at has a lot of potential -- under the right conditions. It can be a lovely rig in which to spend time hauling an Airstream (thanks to a 3,674-kg towing capacity), ferrying the brood …

  • Compact SUV shares more than just a name with its Jeep ancestors
    Winter warrior

    I was not expecting this. See, the Fiat 500 and 500L are far from my favourite cars, and knowing the Jeep Renegade and Fiat 500X are basically the same vehicle, I wasn't optimistic about the Renegade's chances of impressing. Here's the gist of my surprise: not only is the Jeep Renegade …

  • Versa Note is spacious, affordable and fuel efficient
    Roomy runabout

    They don't get much play in the buff book pages, but little economy hatchbacks make up a sizable portion of new car purchases. It's a ferociously competitive segment, with automakers continuously introducing new technology and features previously unheard of at this price. The Nissan Versa Note arrived in 2014, and immediately …

  • Honda's new Pilot an impressive family cruiser
    First-class ticket

    The box is gone. It's about time. Honda's Pilot has been completely redesigned for 2016, and while it was always a decent SUV to drive, as a looker, not so much. The angular lines and boxy shape were distinctive, but weren't exactly sleek and didn't look all that aerodynamic. But, give …

  • Full-size pride still alive
    Mammoth Mopar

    For the few remaining fans of full-size sedans in Canada, the 2016 Dodge Charger is their favourite. However, in a shrinking class that includes nameplates your grandparents are probably more familiar with -- the Chevrolet Impala, Ford Taurus or Toyota Avalon -- is being the bestselling large car in the …

  • Mid-size Chevrolet sedan ups its game with new engines, styling, technology
    Modern Malibu

    PALO ALTO, Calif. -- It's been a half-century since the Malibu nameplate first graced a Chevrolet and in that time, it has gone from a trim-level option to a global brand. It started life in 1964 as an upmarket Chevelle trim level -- it was 14 years before it became a …

  • Hyundai Tucson geared up to play with the big boys
    Upper class

    When folks tell me they're looking for a new mid-sized crossover and ask for recommendations on what to test drive, the Hyundai Santa Fe often tops the list. Hyundai has been producing leading vehicles in this segment for years; in fact, my sister is on her second Santa Fe since …
