  • 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 …

  • This Nissan Rogue is winter's worst nightmare

    SAGUENAY, Que. -- Perhaps more terrifying than zombie-apocalypse TV series The Walking Dead, is Nissan's two-year-old television ad depicting an urban invasion of nefarious snowmen, broadcast in conjunction with the launch of the current-generation Rogue. In the ad, these sub-zero vandals terrorize unassuming citizens, and probably traumatize six-year-olds across the …

  • Lincoln’s version of Ford Edge more elegant
    The edge of greatness

    PERHAPS it’s just an illusion, but having recently driven the Ford Edge, I can’t help but think the Lincoln MKX has a smoother ride. Maybe it’s slightly different suspension tuning, since a glance at the specs of the 2015 Edge and 2016 MKX reveals these vehicular cousins have the same suspensions: …

  • Return of the hot-rod Lincoln

    BACK in 2007, when the first Lincoln MKX hit the streets, I seriously considered packing up all my worldly belongings and heading to Detroit: My goal was simple, to prove to then Ford global vice-president of design J Mays that even a ham-fisted buffoon like me could surely do a …

  • Mazda's new CX-3 efficient, fun and sporty
    Bright future

    There's a new crop of pint-sized crossovers changing the shape of the new car market. Generally finding roots in subcompact economy cars, these entry-level cute-utes combine the elevated seating position and available all-wheel-drive of a crossover with the efficiency and tidy size of a small hatchback. Pricing starts in the …

  • 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 …
