    The Volkswagen Jetta is the German company's best-selling product here in Canada. Yes, we Canadians love the Jetta, which is basically a Golf with an added trunk. We're not alone, as Volkswagen has sold over 14 million Jettas worldwide since its introduction back in 1979. Even a mid-cycle refresh like the one we're getting for 2015 is worth getting excited about. However, as they say, “it's all in the details,” and that's exactly where one needs to look to discover what's new for...

    When you hear the word “Jeep,” what image comes to mind? Probably a go-anywhere Wrangler hitting the Rubicon Trail and conquering everything in its path. What you do not imagine is a derivative of the long-gone Dodge Caliber with a seven-slot grille touting fuel economy over capability. Unfortunately, that's exactly what makes up the Compass. It's Jeep's redheaded stepchild with Trail Rated badging. But, it's not as bad as you'd think...

    Toyota has released the first official picture of the C-HR Concept that will make its debut on October 2nd at the Paris Auto Show. This follows the shadowy figure we saw on September 15th. At first glance, the Toyota C-HR Concept promises to take on other small crossovers like the Nissan Juke and Chevrolet Trax, not to mention the upcoming Honda HR-V. The design may hint at the future direction of Toyota models. There are no further details available at this point, so we'll likely have to...

    Despite our fascination with the small car, larger vehicles are just as prominent on our roads. Why? Because the desire for comfort, space, and security on the road is prevalent with those in need of the interior room and practicality. As one of the pioneers of the crossover market with their CX-7, Mazda's largest family member -- the CX-9 -- is just another feather in their cap in a lineup of fabulously built and fun-to-drive vehicles. With room for seven passengers, the CX-9 is every bit...

    Pros: The 2015 Toyota Tacoma offers some decent cab-box and engine-transmission combinations. Given the brand's reputation, expect reliable performance from this rugged “little” truck. Plus, the various models in the lineup are all nicely finished and appointed. Cons: The suspension is a bit stiff, compromising ride quality. And while the V6 is an honest worker, the 4-cylinder proves quite noisy, unrefined and underpowered...

    Pros: Toyota has applied significant improvements to the road handling characteristics of the 2015 Corolla. Soundproofing is improved and the interior has expanded, mostly in the rear. The familiar 4 cylinder engine is now mated to a CVT transmission for improved fuel economy. The electric rack and pinion steering system is fairly precise. Cons: Although fairly precise, as mentioned, the steering system offers little feedback. Mechanically speaking, Toyota has not increased the engine output...

    PROs: With its Coupé, Hatchback and Sedan, the 2015 Hyundai Elantra covers a wide-ranging spectrum...to suit all tastes. And like all the automaker's other models, it is dependably reliable, offering good value for money. The Elantra has reasonable fuel consumption rates and offers excellent standard features with the emphasis on comfort and roominess. CONs: The 2015 Elantra's suspension is perhaps a little too stiff. Furthermore, steering could be more precise and responsive - and maybe the...

    Toronto, ON -- The Honda Fit has been a class leader since its arrival in 2007 in nearly ever aspect except for the most important: sales. In every comparison test I've conducted in which the Fit participated, it almost inevitably always came out on top. The subcompact Honda hatchback is a brilliant product, but there was this one impossible-to-overcome, looming issue: pricing. With the rolling out of the all-new 2015 Fit, Honda has further dressed up what was already a highly competent car...
