2015 Chevrolet Colorado LT 4WD Extended Cab

2015 Chevrolet Colorado LT 4WD Extended Cab

Chevrolet’s resurrected Colorado makes perfect sense.

DSC03335

I find it puzzling when I see people running errands or simply commuting in a full size truck. Fine, you need the towing capacity and payload area here and there, but what about the vast majority of the time? Seems kind of silly to have all that capability wasting away. Never mind that these are the folks who

2015 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel: Does Volkswagen finally have some competition?

2015 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel

A diesel from Chevrolet, not in a pickup truck.

DSC03303

We often review cars that vie for sales in highly crowded and competitive marketing segments, so it was refreshing grabbing the keys to Chevrolet’s Cruze Diesel, a car that joins the Volkswagen Jetta as the only other compact diesel offering trying to land your hard earned Canadian dollars.

We’ve logged many kilometres behind the wheel of Volkswagen’s

2015 Cadillac ATS 3.6 Performance Coupe

Grandad would not approve, but that’s a good thing

My grandfather was a self-proclaimed “Cadillac Man.” He drove them for most of his life and you could always reliably find one tucked carefully away in his garage. Years of loyal ownership made him a self-proclaimed expert on the brand, and every time a new model came out he’d shake his head, get that wistful look

2015 Cadillac SRX Luxury Collection AWD

Cadillac’s other SUV still has what it takes

DSC03248

 

Cadillac’s SRX SUV is powered by General Motor’s 3.6 liter V6 engine, as is the case for every model they make save for the Escalade and ELR. Count us among the fans of this engine- its uniquely oversquare bore and stroke allow it to build revs with satisfying ease, it spits out healthy horsepower and torque

2015 Acura TLX Elite V6

Two become One.

2015 Acura TLX Elite V6

Over the years the auto industry has seen its fair share of consolidation. Back in 1906, Charlie Rolls and Freddy Royce decided to combine forces which turned out pretty well, aside from a few bumps in the road. Quite the opposite came to pass in Daimler and Chrysler’s “Marriage of Equals”, and don’t ask Ford Motor

2015 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid

Sometimes, greatness is found hiding in plain sight.

DSC03140

You’re forgiven of the name “RLX” flies right over your head. We’ll look the other way if one were to drive right by you and you wouldn’t notice whatsoever. That’s because Acura’s RLX, perhaps one of the most underrated and painfully neglected cars out there, is styled to look like a toaster.

That’s not exactly

2015 Honda Accord Touring

Like fine wine and cheese, it keeps getting better as the years go by

DSC03075

The Honda Accord is the vehicular equivalent of a Golden Retriever- eager to please, loyal and extremely well liked by everyone. When you look at it on the same level as the lovable pooch, it should come as no surprise that Honda sells hundreds of thousands of them every

2015 Honda Fit EX-L

Honda’s smallest car will perfectly “Fit” the bill for many situations.

DSC03036

I remember the first time I drove the Honda Fit: it was a revelation. At the time of its introduction, you simply could not put the words “fun” and “subcompact cars” in the same sentence. Being accustomed to morale-sapping rides like the Toyota Yaris and Chevy Aveo, I figured it was going

Miami Beach, Florida- Remember in the early Oughties at the height of the SUV craze- everyone complained that they were too big, too ponderous and too thirsty? Fast forward to today and while SUV’s are still popular, there’s an emerging shift towards downsizing this popular vehicle type. People are starting to come around to the fact that sky high ground clearances make getting in and

2015 Honda CR-V SE Review and Road Test

2015 Honda CR-V SE

The plans said facelift, but the result was major surgery.

DSC03010

 

We came away with a better understanding of why Honda’s CR-V is the best-selling vehicle in its class when we Road Tested the 2014 model about a year ago. It was comfortable, spacious and well-built yet still engaging to drive. The basic recipe contained a fundamental goodness any small CUV shopper would appreciate,
