If the Chevrolet Trax was a spaceship in a beloved science fiction program/movie, it would be Serenity.
It wouldn’t be the Millennium Falcon – it doesn’t have the speed. It also wouldn’t be the agile-as-all-heck X-Wing, nor the enormous yet elegant Enterprise.
But it would flash its shiny backside at Alliance Cruisers, and it would make all
Easy to drive, easy on the wallet, easy to park just about anywhere, and easy to adapt to any combination of passengers and gear.
Chevrolet launched the 2013 Trax in 2012 to bring the brand’s presence to the growing compact utility marketplace.
Trax was a small two-row crossove
General Motors' Chevrolet brand is recalling nearly 1,900 examples of its Sonic , Trax and Spark models to fix a warning chime that may fail to remind the driver of a key left in the ignition, or a seatbelt left unbuckled.
The recall covers cars previously recalled for the same problem ; GM and Transport Canada say this smaller number of
What a colossal missed opportunity to not be calling this latest Honda crossover the “Crossfit.” I mean, it's a Fit-based crossover. Cross-Fit. Crossfit! [Perhaps the taint of Crosstour is just too fresh in their minds… –Ed.] C'mon Honda – enough with the alphanumerics!
Not to mention that, not unlike the aforementioned fitness craze, this lit
The introduction of a new (sub)compact SUV has become like Donald Trump’s scandals: just when you thought you’d seen them all, there’s yet another feeding the news cycle. After years of selling on other continents, the newish Ford EcoSport (pronounced “echo” not “ee-koh”) has been tinkered with slightly and finally coming to North America. The firs
Ordinarily at an auto show, we're left to gaze upon the shiny sheet metal and hazard a guess as to how it might drive. By a stroke of luck – a happenstance meeting on the Angeles Crest Highway – I might just have a pretty good idea of how this little terrier handles.
Mark it on your calendar - the compact crossover wars are hitting their full sw
Easy to say but hard to spell, Qashqai (pronounced cash-kye) is a word Nissan Canada hopes will be rolling off the tongues of compact crossover buyers come springtime. Arriving to duke it out with the likes of the Honda HR-V , Jeep Renegade and Chevy Trax , the 2017 Nissan Qashqai comes with quite the resume – it’s been the runaway segment lead
Mazda's subcompact CX-3 crossover gets new autonomous braking, G-Vectoring control, and a revised chassis with better handling and less noise for 2018. And it gets a price cut of $700.
The first new tech feature is Smart City Brake Support. The feature can automatically brake in emergencies below 30 km/h. It was optional on just the top GT trim
On a recent procrastination-fueled trip through the interwebz (or was it the facebookz?), I came across a video of a couple of rappers listening to a freestyle track they’d laid decades prior, when their careers were in their infancy.
I mean, just look at it! It’s completely turned the brand on its head!
Part of the video had a graffiti
We here at autoTRADER have a soft spot in our hearts for the Subaru XV Crosstrek. Its tidy size, nimble handling, surprisingly good fuel economy and, of course, legendary flick-the-bird-at-winter symmetrical full-time all-wheel-drive saw it win top spot in our 2013 Mini-SUV shootout.
In the world of small crossovers, the Crosstrek is an interest
The subcompact crossover SUV segment is the fastest-growing automotive segment with consumers practically climbing over themselves to snatch them. The manufacturers, of course, are only too happy to fulfill those requests with new models popping up like mushrooms every year.
If you don’t like the looks of the Kona, well you’re probably not co
The colour on the little Jeeplet you see before you is called Jungle Green. It’s a great-looking, non-metallic shade that seems most appropriate on a vehicle whose brand has a history of go-anywhere, do-anything ruggedness. If you’ve got to drive through a jungle, a Jeep is one of very few vehicles you’d want to do it in.
The only jungle this
This past March we brought you the news that when headlights were tested for brightness, they came up dim. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the good folks who do much of the crash testing we read about, tested 31 midsize sedans and found only one scored a "good". The rest were marginal or poor. Even those with LED or HID lights
The sub-compact crossover is the hottest thing on four wheels right now, and it seems like a new model is being released every day. The segment is up nearly 30 percent over last year in sales in Canada. So it was no surprise that just ahead of the LA Auto Show Chevrolet launched their latest, the Spark Activ. What is a surprise is that it won't b
When you don’t have much of something, smart people learn to make the most of what they do have. Now I’ve never been to Japan, but have always admired how cleverly the Japanese use space. It’s like they invent it from nothing. Consider those capsule hotels in Japanese cities or, better still, the Tokyo subway, where oshiya , roughly translated as
