2017 BMW 750Li Executive

Big flagship luxury sedans don’t change up as quickly as more volume-oriented premium models, such as BMW’s ultra-popular D-segment 3 Series in comparison to its full-size F-segment 7. And for those customers at the top, this reality seems to be okay. The previous fifth-generation F01/F02/F03 body style lasted eight years before it saw the current…

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback LX

Is that a Honda Civic with four doors and a hatch? You saw that right. Odd that Honda took so long to re-enter the compact hatchback market it helped create way back in the late ‘60s and made popular in the ‘70s and ‘80s, but the Honda Civic Hatchback is back and better than ever, if somewhat controversial looking. Yes, the new Civic Hatchback…

2017 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400

We drove the 2017 Infiniti Q60 3.0t AWD Coupe last fall, and while a wonderfully quick, impressively refined and beautifully sculpted two-door hardtop it was nowhere near the car this Q60 Red Sport 400 is. The Red Sport 400 is a BMW M4 for those who prefer subtler styling and less aggressive dynamics. It’s plenty quick with 400 horsepower and 350…

2017 Nissan Rogue SL Platinum AWD

Make up your mind, Canada. For years you made Ford’s Escape number one in the compact SUV category, but that ended when 2016 closed and Toyota’s RAV4 took over top spot, and then after two months of 2017 Honda’s recently redesigned CR-V bumped the RAV4 off its pedestal, only to be knocked off by Nissan’s new Rogue last month. As of Q1 2017,…

2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron Road Test

If you want a small entry-level luxury plug-in car there are only two to choose from, BMW’s i3 and Audi’s slightly larger A3 Sportback e-tron. Both are sporty, offer beautiful interiors, come loaded with features and provide superb economy, but where the i3 looks like some sort of lunar landing vehicle, the e-tron is downright conventional. We…

2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport

With Q1 behind us we probably shouldn’t forecast 2017 as the year of the car’s return, as SUV growth is still at unprecedented rates, but some models give the future of ground-hugging models hope. After hovering around the 65k mark for the past half decade Honda’s Civic once again shows that the market for cars is ripe if you build something…

2017 Porsche Macan

It’s too early to tell exactly why Porsche’s Macan has improved its sales so dramatically from its first full calendar year of 2015 when it sold 2,121 units to the close of 2016 when its final tally was an impressive 2,800, but the model’s ability to target an entirely new audience of entry-level luxury buyers as the 2017 model year began last…

2017 Ford Escape Titanium AWD Road Test

A major mid-cycle refresh gives the 2017 Ford Escape new frontal and rear styling, new and improved optional engines with our top-tier Titanium tester boasting 245-hp and 275 lb-ft of torque, an updated interior with a new lower console, an electromechanical parking brake, upgraded Sync 3 infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus lots…
