2016 Kia Soul SE Sport (TwoTone) – Road Test

My wife just LOVES the Kia Soul – she thinks it was made just for her… I like it a lot, and every time I drive one I come away impressed – reluctantly so. For me the Soul is one of those vehicles that I have a love/hate relationship with. I don’t want to love it, but I kinda do. It’s enjoyable to drive, fun and quirky enough to be different from all the other blah cars driving up and down the road in boring silver or snore gold. The TV commercials tell us it is fun to drive and to be seen in… and damn-it – they’re right!!

Honda Civic Celebrates 17 Years as Canada’s Best-Selling Passenger Car

MARKHAM, ON (January 5, 2015) – With sales of 66,057 units in 2014, the Honda Civic outsold its closest competitor by more than 15,000 units to retain its position as Canada’s best-selling passenger car for the 17th consecutive year. This remarkable feat is a testament to the durability, quality and reliability that Canadians have come to expect from Honda and the delicate balance of safety, fuel efficiency and fun-to-drive attributes that Civic delivers, year after year. “We truly value the trust that our customers put in us when they buy a Civic,” said Dave Gardner, vice president of sales and marketing, Honda Canada Inc. “Nearly every Civic sold in Canada is built for Canadians, by Canadians, right here in our Ontario manufacturing facility. 

2011 Hyundai Tucson GLS AWD – Road Test

For the last year or so Hyundai has been on a bit of a tear with new models coming out every few months – each one significantly better looking than the model it replaces. The Santa Fe was the first model to get the new treatment followed by a completely new model line-up in the case of the Genesis Coupe and Sedan, followed by the all-new Sonata that has earned numerous awards around the world. More new vehicles are coming in the next few months, but this week’s Road Test is the highly anticipated small CUV, the Tucson.

2007 Mazda CX-7 GS – Road Test

When I first saw the MX-Crossport Concept Vehicle (now known as the Mazda CX-7) at the Toronto International Auto Show 18 months ago, I thought it was a nice looking, but impractical SUV/Concept vehicle. I was somewhat surprised when I saw the actual pre-production version at this past February’s Auto Show. It doesn’t look like any other SUV on the road today. It’s not boxy and generic-looking, it’s actually more Sport than Utility looking. From the front, it looks a lot like the Mazda RX-8 sports car – especially if you’re looking at it through your rear-view mirror. It certainly looks like its got zoom – but does it have Zoom-Zoom? Oh yeah, it goes like stink!
