  • Toyota's new Prius packed with state-of-the-art hybrid technology

    I’m not really into lucky numbers. My office lottery pool is a futile series of random tickets that fail to pay off week after week. And when in Vegas, I bet on red. I like those odds.I think the Prius has a lucky number, though, and it’s 4.4. As in, …

  • One week, 164 kilometres, $8.64. It’s a small sample size, I know, but it was a week punctuated with, “Will the gas gauge ever move?” until, “Finally, it moved.” Even then, it was impossible to stifle a laugh when the pump clicked off before the gas-station attendant could finish telling …

  • Toyota's beefy Tundra TRD Pro heavy on utility, light on technology

    A little old-school, I thought, as I got out of the Tundra after my first stint behind the wheel. For starters, this $57,000 truck doesn’t have a panoramic sunroof. Only the front seats are heated, and the wipers can’t sense the rain. Park assist? Don’t think so. Remote start? Nope. …

  • Nissan finds the right path with quietly competent family SUV

    Over its 30-year run, Nissan’s Pathfinder has undergone several interesting transformations. Originally a two-door sport ute that was essentially a covered version of the Hardbody pickup, it added a second set of doors five years later.

  • Drop the top and let 'er rip

    LOS ANGELES — “L.A.’s fine, sunshine most of the time. The feeling is laid back.”So sang Neil Diamond 45 years ago. And, yes, it is indeed a fine, sunshiny day, made all the more glorious by the fact that southern Ontario is experiencing a genuinely frigid stretch of weather.Shades …

  • Hyundai's redesigned compact a thoroughly refined contender

    Ever notice that right after acquiring something — be it a new purchase, an experience or in this case, a press car — you suddenly start seeing it everywhere? Being dogged by random sightings of Hyundai Elantras this week was probably as much due to it being one of Canada’s …

  • Changes to new Ford Escape far greater than meet the eye

    JASPER, Alta. — The elk looked up as we approached, and then almost seemed to shrug his shoulders as he went back to eating the grass. Dawn has just broken over the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge and we’re about to leave paradise and head back to Calgary, the airport and …

  • Mercedes-Benz crosses over into the land of four-door coupes

      I thought I’d never see the day a high-ranking auto exec would look at the BMW X6 and say “we need one of those.” More expensive and cramped than the X5 on which it’s based, I can only assume that some folks think the “crossover coupe” looks better and value the …

  • Honda's Ridgeline combines pickup truck utility with car-like ride

    SAN ANTONIO — Okay, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline sports a new silhouette that says it’s all pickup truck. Gone are the previous-generation’s sloping bed sides, replaced by a sharp, more distinct transition between cab and bed. Body lines are straighter, it’s longer, and it has a very truck-like payload. Rated at …

  • Latest Malibu a nicely-polished package

    With only a brief hiatus, the Malibu has been a Chevrolet staple since it was introduced at around the same time the Beatles first appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show.Over the years, the good, the bad and the plain ugly have worn the nameplate. The ugly badge is pinned …
