The 2015 Mazda CX-5 boasts superb performance, space, safety and efficiency. In other words, it has everything most small families need in a compact crossover SUV.
The new Mazda CX-5 isn’t all that different from the 2014 model, with the only true alteration being the fact that keyless entry and ignition are now standard on the GS and GT trims. What hasn’t changed, however, is the vehicle’s affordability along with its surprisingly sporty nature, solid fuel economy and unparalleled safety. The base model costs only $22,995, which means that it is one of the cheapest compact crossovers on the market. As far as we are concerned, it’s worth every penny, and this is why: Read More

The 2015 Lexus RX 350 delivers an exceptionally smooth engine, long list of available features and upscale cabin, proving once again why it’s one of the most popular modern crossovers.
It’s easy to see why luxury crossover buyers love the Lexus RX 350 so much. Its fine engine, upscale interior and impressive features are some of the most desirable attributes a luxury crossover can have. Add to that a quiet ride, unparalleled reputation for reliability and enough space to fit in bucketloads of shopping bags and you have yourself a superb vehicle. That said, if you need an SUV that can go off-road and tow more than 3,500 pounds, then this won’t do. The RX was clearly built for comfort, not performance. Read More

The 2015 Hyundai Elantra delivers neat looks and solid fuel economy, which allow it to stay competitive.
When Hyundai released the 2011 Elantra, it was a turning point for the company. A name that used to be associated with “affordable” perhaps “cheap” was now being called “good value” and “impressive.” With its sleek new styling, solid fuel economy and advanced technology features, the Elantra was good enough to steal a lot of the attention away from the category leaders. Now, four years older and without many major upgrades, does the Elantra still act as a frontrunner in the compact car segment? Let’s take a look. Read More

Last winter, the Canadian car industry entered a new era, unknowingly to most. For the first time in history the crossover utility vehicles (CUV) overtook compact cars as the nation’s most popular segment. This moment was a long time coming, dating back to 2008. The Ford Escape was the first to break into the top-10 chart of most popular vehicles, with the Hyundai Santa Fe, Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 quickly following. Read More

The 2015 Ford F-150 boasts several big body changes, a new engine and more advanced tech features than ever before, all of which add up to one of the best pickup trucks on the market.
We can’t review the new Ford F-150 without acknowledging the recent news first – that the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) has named it the Canadian Pickup of the Year and a candidate for the Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year award. In order to win the AJAC’s admiration, a vehicle must be completely new or changed significantly enough to feel new. The redesigned F-150 isn’t new, but it sure seems that way. Read More

The 2015 Toyota Corolla builds on its solid foundations by improving its style, cabin comfort and technology.
The Toyota Corolla has a long history – almost 50 years for that matter – of being a reliable and economical car. Despite not having all of the bells and whistles boasted by many other vehicles in the segment, the Corolla has remained one of the best-selling vehicles on the market. But can the Corolla overcome its stereotype and become more than just a trouble-free economy sedan? The 2015 model might just give us our answer. Read More
The 2015 Ford Escape delivers more than one might expect from a vehicle in this class thanks to numerous upscale features.

With an upscale cabin, powerful engine and top-of-the-line tech specs, the top-level Escape easily rivals some of the more upscale vehicles. The Ford Escape has all the potential to out-class its own segment and appeal to an all-new group of buyers. Read More
