  • New HR-V welcome addition to the Honda family

    WHEN the first-generation Honda CR-V hit the North American market in 1997 it was a gamechanger. Just the right size, great on fuel, moderately comfortable and affordable for the masses — the CR-V carried on where the Honda Civic station wagon left off. Young outdoor enthusiasts appreciated its utility, parents …

  • Second-generation Volt drives like a regular car
    Current affair

    The hybridization of the automobile is a fait accompli. Without some form of electrification, meeting the ever-tightening Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulations will become all but impossible. The second-generation Chevrolet Volt hints at where future cars must go to meet these stringent changes. In this case, the Volt pushes …

  • Nissan's new Titan XD fills void between half-ton and heavy-duty pickups / E2
    Nissan Titan XD: refined yet rugged

    MARICOPA, Ariz. -- Picking their way through the dusty sagebrush, two wild horses suddenly appeared by the roadside, bachelor colts by the look of them, juvenile stallions who'd probably been run off by the herd's leader once they'd reached puberty. There's zero tolerance for teenage behaviour among equines, so these …

  • Nissan's stylish and sporty sedan feels like an affordable Infiniti
    Low-cost luxury

    Nissan's Maxima has long been a sedan in search of a segment. Ever since the Altima came along and usurped the Maxima's position as Nissan's Accord-fighting, Camry-baiting family sedan, Maxima has been stuck in the mid-sized middle of the pack. Not quite luxurious enough to be considered a front-wheel-drive Infiniti, or …

  • Bentley's new super-ute may be the most opulent SUV on Earth
    Swank utility vehicle

    MARBELLA, Spain -- "Rule, Britannia! Britannia rule the waves ...." Britannia may rule the roads, too, courtesy of the latest entry by a luxury automaker into the world of high-end sport utes: the Bentley Bentayga. Forget the Spanish Armada, the attempted invasion of England in 1588 with a fleet of warships. …

  • Of the dozens of cars I have the opportunity to drive each year, one usually stands apart from the rest as being most memorable. Last year it was the Jaguar F-Type V-6 S. And even though we are a month from the end of this calendar year, my fearless prediction …

  • 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 …

  • 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 …

  • Pricey Porsche worth every penny -- all 1.77 million of them
    Show me the money

    On the surface, the choice seems dead simple. But it isn't, at least for us mere mortals. In the driveway recently was the 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet and the 2016 Mazda MX-5. For most weeks, the 911 sharing the driveway with anything else means drastically reduced seat time …
