  • Quiet, comfortable mid-size hybrid as frugal as you require it to be
    Sensible sedan

    Crude oil prices may be plunging, but gas prices here in the Great Gouged North are still high. At $1.11 for a litre of regular (in Toronto at time of writing) it's not cheap to fill up. So, in this environment of collapsing oil prices and stubbornly high gas costs, …

  • All-new hatch offers practicality for younger buyers
    Hipster hauler

    Youths! The throbbing music, the improbable haircuts, the expensive tattoos, the need to look like a lumberjack; they are a strange, seemingly unfathomable breed, yet at heart their needs are relatively mundane. Thus, the all-new 2016 Scion iM should be destined for sales success. Scion is Toyota's youth-oriented brand, with a …

  • Audi's powerful crossover funky and frugal
    DAPPER diesel

    The automobile business is a mix of art and science. And the success of Audi's Q5 can be explained by a simple mathematical formula: if X equals "crossover" and Y represents "luxury" -- the two biggest growth areas in the automobile business since the turn of this century -- then …

  • Jaguar returns to the stick with the sultry F-Type
    Shifting priorities

    Wow, Jaguars aren't just for senior citizens anymore, are they?These words carry all the more weight coming from a fully hipstered -- scraggly miner's beard, silly little short-cropped ponytail and a wonderful absence of self-knowledge -- thirtysomething, the very archetype of the demographic Jaguar would dearly love to start attracting.Conditioned …

  • Chrysler's former ugly duckling transformed into a real beauty

    The previous Chrysler 200 was not only poorly conceived, it was a stodgy stylistic blob. Neither trait was good for sales. Its replacement, however, addresses both of these problems very effectively.To begin with, the new look comes from the creative mind of Jeff Hammoud, a young designer from, of all …

  • Prius is still king of fuel sippers, but its dated looks could use an overhaul

    Hear the words "green car" and chances are the Prius comes to mind. Toyota's distinctive wedge-shaped icon has become the de facto poster child for the hybrid movement, and a status symbol for the eco-conscientious.It wasn't always so.Two decades ago, fuel was plentiful and "cheaper than bottled water," according to …

  • New CTS-V is an arrow through the heart of BMW
    Killer Cadillac

    Elkhart Lake, Wis. - OK, BMW, I have a message for you from the good folks at Cadillac. It's not a verbatim quote, more a rough paraphrasing or, perhaps more accurately, an unspoken mantra. But, discussed openly or just Vulcan mind-melded through Caddy's entire engineering department, the message is as …

  • Jeep's powerful Grand Cherokee SRT delivers muscle-car thrills
    Pavement pounder

    Once again, I'm conflicted. While my deep-seated inner motorhead snickers over the muscle-bound Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT like a schoolboy who's just heard a dirty joke, an equally rooted history with Jeep products has me preserving my moral outrage. Well, sort of.Here's the beef, which I articulated the last time …

  • Micra: $10,000 for a brand new car complete with warranty
    Cheap and cheerful

    The Nissan Micra and I go way back. In fact, it was the very first car I'd owned entirely on my own. The baby-blue, 1986 Micra wasn't much to look at, leading one of my friends to proclaim it "even uglier than a Yugo." Nevertheless, I learned a lot about …

  • Disco drives like car, off-roads like a beast
    Double threat

    If ever there was a poster child for having first impressions swept away by reality, the Land Rover Discovery Sport might be it. Walk up to it, drive it in daily driving and you'll marvel at its on-road prowess. You might even dismiss it as the best-looking Honda CR-V you've ever …
