  2. Test Drives 2020 Hyundai Elantra: Still Good Enough for Bronze

    The Hyundai Elantra is one of the most popular cars in Canada. And for good reason. Despite a drop of about 9 percent last year, it still sold more than 41,000 units. Korea’s finest compact ranks third in the country behind only the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. The quality … Full story

  3. Test Drives 2019 Volvo V60 Cross Country: More Fun Than an SUV

    Volvo’s Cross Country models have been around since 1997 and they’re a big reason why people are drawn to the Swedish brand. With the new generation of the S60/V60 launched for 2019, we get a completely redesigned and improved version of the adventurous compact wagon. As you know, this type … Full story

  4. Test Drives 2019 Acura RDX: Just in Time

    These days, if a luxury brand portfolio isn’t filled with SUVs of all shapes and sizes, it’s because someone high up within the company messed up. That person—or it could be a committee—misjudged the shift towards light trucks and are left struggling with declining sales. We don’t know who these … Full story

  5. Test Drives 2019 Jaguar I-PACE: Style, Luxury, Comfort… and No Emissions

    Tesla turned the luxury-car market upside down several years ago by relying on fully electric powertrains, a strategy that helped the brand carve its own niche and enjoy more success than it likely would have had if it sold conventionally powered automobiles instead. Now, Jaguar is launching the first strike … Full story

  6. Test Drives 2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo: a GT, but not a GTI

    The Hyundai Veloster is a peculiar little beast. It arrived on the market for the 2012 model year and stunned the compact-car landscape with its offbeat design, and especially its asymmetrical door layout. Despite its modest architecture, the Veloster boasted surprisingly amusing driving dynamics, although its 1.6-litre, four-cylinder borrowed from … Full story

  7. Test Drives 2019 Lincoln MKC: One Last Show

    The MKC is knocking on death’s door. The 2020 Lincoln Corsair, its replacement in the brand’s line-up, was unveiled at this year’s New York Auto Show. Wait—didn’t the MKC get a facelift for the 2019 model year? It did, and it doesn’t make sense from a financial standpoint for the … Full story

  8. Test Drives 2019 Acura ILX: Recycling Done Well

    For 2019, the Acura ILX gets another facelift. Yes, this car’s been with us since 2012, and yes, it’s still based on the last-generation Honda Civic’s platform. Yet Acura has somehow injected a healthy dose of relevance to its dated subcompact luxury sedan. If anything, this version is its most … Full story

  9. Test Drives 2019 Mazda CX-9: The Gymnast

    For mainstream brands, successfully selling a midsize, three-row SUV isn’t an easy task. The average number of children in North-American families isn’t rising, so the need for such a big vehicle isn’t always justified. And each model in this segment must battle about ten competitors. The number is about to … Full story

  10. Test Drives 2019 Subaru Forester: Diluting the Soul

    Any Subaru faithful will tell you that their cars have a soul, a definitive way of sounding, driving, handling and operating. And frankly, we agree. With its rumbling Boxer engine, low centre of gravity and witty all-wheel drive system, a Subaru is a different kind of car. But lately, it … Full story
