2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE 2.4 AWC

17 mitsubishi outlander sport thumbnail

The subcompact SUV category is booming, with sales growing exponentially and new models being added regularly. A shocking four upstarts arrived on American roads in 2015, almost doubling competitors to a total of nine, while two newcomers will arrive before the close of 2017. All I can say is it's a shame Suzuki isn't here to take part. Many who remember the fun little Samurai will point to ... Read More

2017 Ford Escape Titanium AWD

Ford gave its popular Escape compact crossover SUV a major update for this 2017 model year, making it look like a smaller Edge in the process. This will be good news if you like Ford’s mid-size five-seat SUV, but I must say the Escape has certainly lost some of its unique character after swapping its unorthodox grille-less façade for a more commonplace six-sided grille design. It seemed like ... Read More

2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron Premium

17 audi a3 sportback e tron thumbnail

I'd like to say that most of us are greening sufficiently to consider a plug-in for our next vehicle, but sales stats don't agree. As of the close of calendar year 2016, which saw a new record for PHEV and EV sales, plug-ins amounted to just 0.57 percent of total global auto sales. I suppose we've got to start somewhere, and with respect to Audi that somewhere is the new A3 Sportback ... Read More

2017 Subaru Impreza Sport 5-Door

It's been an especially good 12-plus months for Subaru. Not only did calendar year 2016 result in the Japanese brand’s best-ever sales, but last year it took home trophies for the Crosstrek and Legacy in Vincentric's "Best Value in America Awards" and "Lowest Cost to Own in America" (plus the Outback for the latter), as well as another overall brand honor in ALG’s Residual Value Awards. Subaru ... Read More

2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country T6 AWD

Sport wagon fans, crossover fans, unite! Volvo has created your ultimate ride. The new Volvo V90 Cross Country might be the spiritual successor to the XC70, but it's an altogether more advanced, more luxurious, better driving, and better looking vehicle. Of course, any wagon fan worth their salt loved the XC70 when new too, but that was a long time ago. A very long time ago. In fact, the ... Read More

2017 Toyota Corolla Sedan XSE

What is it about style? Why are most of us so susceptible to it? When the current 11th-generation Corolla was introduced in 2013 for the 2014 model year it was considered the most stylish car in its class. I was shocked by a progressive design that even made base models look both classy and sporty at a premium level, aided by complex standard LED headlamps and taillights. In comparison, previous ...

Top Crossovers for 2017

Part car and part compact utility vehicle, crossovers are completely fun, versatile, jacks-of-all-trades. They're also one of the fastest growing segments of the automotive world, and it's easy to see why. Outfitted with features like all-wheel drive, roomy interiors, and the capability to haul a good amount of cargo, crossovers appeal not just to the adventure crowd but to families as ... Read More

2017 BMW M2

Strangely, I can recall almost every moment from behind the wheel of a Euro-spec 1994 M3 that I drove nearly 20 years ago. In actual fact it was one of the Canadian-spec BF91 cars that BMW Canada had imported and sold instantly (3 days) to just 45 rabid fans thanks to a raucous and high-revving 282 horsepower (at 7,300 rpm) S50B30 3.0-liter inline-six conjoined to a five-speed manual that drove ...

2017 Porsche Macan

It's too early to tell exactly why Porsche has improved Macan sales so dramatically since its first full year of availability in 2015 when it sold 13,533 units, to the close of 2016 when its final tally was an impressive 19,332, but its recent ability to target an entirely new audience of entry-level luxury buyers probably had something to do with it. Enter the all-new 2017 Porsche Macan. No, ... Read More
