  • 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 …

  • 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 …

  • 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 …
