    The Volkswagen Jetta has a new look for 2015. Why, you ask? In part, it’s to give it a more “premium” appeal, but the real reason is that the Jetta’s monocoque structure was revised to make it compliant with the latest passenger protection standards in case of a collision. The … Full story

  5. First Drives The Cayman GTS enjoying some high-speed turns on the Laguna Seca circuit. 2015 Porsche Boxster and Cayman GTS: Impressive Variations

    When Porsche builds a series of models, it does so very carefully. Kind of like building a house.

  6. First Drives Like so many of the once-bustling towns located this close to the Arctic Circle the GMC Yukon finds itself at the edge of a receding frontier. Coming Home: Driving The 2015 GMC Yukon Through The Yukon Territory

    Seemingly, you’d have to be more than a little crazy to hurtle a two-ton SUV up and down a 60 kilometre Yukon mountain mining road so steep that there’s simply nowhere to even attach a guard rail.  And yet I found myself doing exactly that this past week behind the … Full story

    A few months ago, Toyota unveiled the 2015 Camry, a mid-generation model featuring some fairly significant changes.

    Acura’s SUVs have been selling well since they were updated, but the same can’t be said about the brand’s sedans. The TSX is still offered, but it simply doesn’t stand out from the crowd.
