  • Car Review: 2014 toyota Prius v

    I’d be much happier if Toyota stuck a more conventional instrument panel into its spacious Prius v hybrid rather than shifting everything to the centre of the dashboard. I don’t understand the rationale behind this awkward positioning. Then again, I’m not an engineer — just a simple dude who asks why? The hood shading the […]

  • SUV Review: 2014 Toyota highlander Hybrid

    Built in the United States, Toyota’s third-generation Highlander looks more rugged than its forbearers, and I doubt that’s unintended. SUVs are expected to portray a person’s proclivity for enjoying the wilds where shopping malls exist only in Google Maps. According to ad agencies, that’s how we like to perceive ourselves behind the wheel of these […]

  • Real cars, real-world fuel results

    It’s no doubt that fuel economy is a high priority when people go to buy their new cars. Yes, heated seats, air conditioning and leather-upholstered seats are wants, but they aren’t necessarily needs. People desire to know how efficient the vehicles can be and what they can expect to be paying at the pump for […]

  • BMW Swift agile sedan melds torque with style

    Diesel sedans are growing in popularity, and there’s plenty of reasons why — not least of which is fuel-economy. So it’s with great interest that I sampled an entry-level diesel sedan a few weeks ago when I reviewed the Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. This week provides the opportunity to contrast the affordable product with a higher-end […]

  • Torquey Cruze says move over, VW

    In many ways, Chevrolet’s new diesel-fed Cruze compact sedan makes sense; yet in other ways, it may not. For example, the Cruze Diesel costs approximately $2,600 more than an equivalently-equipped gas-fired Cruze 2LT, and diesel fuel is more expensive than regular unleaded juice. A further consideration is the need to top-up the diesel’s urea-injection DEF […]
