2019 Hyundai Accent at a glance

2019 Hyundai Accent
The Hyundai Accent has evolved in all ways but one. Way back in 1994, the ’95 Accent was one of the most affordable ways to get around. In fact, if you could stick to the most basic trim (they essentially all were…), your bus/subway fare budget just about covered monthly payments for the car. Fast forward nearly 25 years and...

2019 Acura MDX at a glance

2019 Acura MDX
Things aren’t always peachy over at Acura, but one bright spot year in and year out is the mid-size three-row Acura MDX. So far this year, the MDX is fourth in its segment in Canada, and second only to the Lexus RX in the U.S. There’s something that’s easy to love about the Acura MDX and the 2019 model-year is...

2019 Subaru Crosstrek at a glance

2019 Subaru Crosstrek
The Subaru Crosstrek isn’t quite a car and it isn’t quite an SUV. It’s not long enough to be a wagon either. It’s a kind of all-wheel drive hatchback with above average ground clearance that is available with a manual gearbox and ultimately, it’s a rather unique vehicle. Its main competitors are subcompact SUVs like the Ford EcoSport, Honda HR-V,...

2019 Jaguar XE at a glance

2019 Jaguar XE
Jaguar finally got their act together in 2014 when they introduced the Jaguar XE in an elaborate celebration in London. For a luxury automaker, a compact luxury sedan is a must. Do it right, and it becomes a cash cow that serves to introduce new clients to your brand every year. The Jaguar XE can lead to a Jaguar XF...

2019 Ford Explorer at a glance

2019 Ford Explorer Sport
You may be surprised to learn that the current Ford Explorer is 9 years old. Doesn’t seem that long does it? Introduced in 2011, the Explorer did get two facelifts since then, the first and most significant in 2016 and the second last year. It seems that was enough to keep consumers happy as the Explorer, despite its age, is...

2019 Kia Sorento at a glance

2019 Kia Sorento
Kia needs its all-new 2019 Sorento to be a hit with consumers, it’s that simple. A few minutes behind the wheel is enough to know that the Korean automaker certainly put its best foot forward with this new generation. The problem, however, is that the Sorento’s main competitors like Mazda, Subaru and Hyundai also have some pretty darn good and...

2019 Jeep Cherokee at a glance

2019 Jeep Cherokee at a glance
The Jeep Cherokee nameplate came back to North America at the 2013 New York International Auto Show after a 12-year hiatus. For those 12 years, Jeep’s compact SUV was called Liberty, but Cherokee just sounds better doesn’t it? Unfortunately, the current-generation Cherokee which receives only a few improvements for 2019 has struggled to carve out a major space for...

2019 Toyota Tacoma at a glance

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro
It took about a decade for Toyota to redesign the Tacoma which is surprising considering how popular and established it is. It took a push by GM with the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon to bring Toyota out of hibernation with its midsize truck. Now, Ford is about to bring a new Ranger to the market and the Canyon and...

2019 Nissan Rogue at a glance

2018 Nissan Rogue
Not quite on sale yet, the 2019 Nissan Rogue is nevertheless on the way with a few improvements, namely in the safety department. The best-selling Nissan vehicle in North America will nevertheless drive the same way as the 2018 model, which means the emphasis remains squarely on comfort. The 2019 Rogue will get Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 in the mid-...

2019 Toyota Corolla at a glance

Toyota Corolla Best-Selling Cars in Canada
For 2019, the big news regarding the Corolla lineup is the arrival of the Hatchback version. We’ve covered the new Corolla hot hatch a few weeks ago and came away fairly impressed with the Corolla iM’s much needed replacement. But what about the sedan? Not much changes in that regard when it comes to the 2019 Toyota Corolla. Facing a...
