2015 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Highline

Volkswagen calls its 2015 Jetta “refined, redesigned,” and countless man-hours have gone into its re-engineering, but you’d need to crawl all over the car, unbolt most of the body, drive it or spend some time on VW’s website to fathom the changes. That’s why we wrote, “2015 Volkswagen Jetta is n…


2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk [w/video]

There are two avenues to the world of off-roading. Arguably the more popular is to pick up a second- or third-hand Jeep, Land Rover or pickup truck and go wild with the aftermarket. The opposite approach, though, is to simply buy new, which brings a warranty along with the most up-to-date off-ro…


2017 Jaguar XE

Pouncing On The Wide-Open Compact Luxury Sports Segment

For the first time in decades, the prize for the best-driving compact luxury sport sedan is very much up for grabs.

BMW’s 3 Series, the segment’s longstanding archetype, has grown a bit soft, distant and pricy. Its Japanese rival from …


2015 Jeep Renegade [w/video]

Would it surprise you to hear that a strong, vocal and loyal owner base can sometimes be a hindrance to automakers? Of course, no brand would ever admit such a thing. And sure, on the surface, you might think that having people passionately champion a brand would provide nothing but perks. As we…


2015 Mercedes-Benz SLK 350

Introduced in 1996 as a 1997 model, the Mercedes-Benz SLK was a car that took the industry by surprise. It was one of the first two-seat roadsters widely available with a retractable hardtop for a reasonably affordable price.

With keys to the latest SLK350 in hand, we pondered over the bright…


2015 Ducati Scrambler

Just past the ping-pong table and the pop-up barbershop, a live graffiti artist splashes colour across a makeshift wall while Bruce Brown’s On Any Sunday plays on a bigscreen. If it weren’t for the odd motorcycles and accessories scattered within this carefully curated array of culture ephemera,…


2015 Ram ProMaster City Wagon [w/video]

At the tail end of 2014, I had some time to sample Ram’s slightly more civilized version of the Promaster Cargo Van – the ProMaster City Wagon.

From the driver’s seat forward, the Wagon and Tradesman (Ram’s name for the cargo version) are practically the same, but the former trim is a lot dif…


2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600

Has Daimler’s Ultralux Brand Gone From Overpriced To High Value?

Imagine the audacity: during the salad days of the early 2000s, the company that invented the automobile – already synonymous with class-leading luxury – sought to further expand its portfolio by crashing the ultralux…


2015 BMW X4 xDrive28i

The Art Of Polarization, Take Two

When BMW unveiled the X6 back in 2008, critical reviews were mixed, to say the least. By all accounts, the heavyweight crossover actually drove quite well, but the idea of a BMW X5 that traded a lot of functionality for polarizing looks and a higher price tag …


2015 Chrysler 300 [w/video]

V8, Fullsize And In A Class Of One

When Chrysler last updated its 300 in 2011, the fullsize sedan market was a very different place than it is today. Ford’s redesigned Taurus was in showrooms, sure, but segment stalwarts like the Toyota Avalon and Chevrolet Impala were languishing at the tail …
