This summer, I spent a few weeks with a 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T. I did a little bit of everything with this car: city slogging, highway cruising, and hauling heaps of stuff. Click through the links below to read my impressions of a car that was fun, but far from perfect.

What I think: 2013 Ford Escape
Ford’s redesigned Escape crossover is a good one, but the 1.6-litre turbocharged engine makes it great. Click here for my review at Autos.ca.
What I think: 2013 Mazda CX-5 GX
Mazda’s newest crossover is the CX-5, a good-looking number that also boasts the best of Mazda’s fuel-saving SkyActiv technology. I took a brief drive in a version that not many auto writers have had a chance to test: the basic GX trim, with a manual transmission, to boot! Click here to check out my Autos.ca review.
What I think: Long-term Toyota Prius C
I, with the help of the Autos.ca team, am conducting a three-month, long-term test of Toyota’s newest — and smallest — hybrid model, the Prius C. Click here to read my Autos.ca Long-Term Introduction of this car.
What I think: Long-term Hyundai Genesis Coupe
I’m in the early weeks of an extended, four-month test of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, a rear-wheel drive car that challenges many of the negative stereotypes that continue to dog this carmaker, in spite of the recent, massive strides in quality they’ve made.

What I think: 2012 Honda Accord HFP coupe
Honda has worked its HFP (Honda Factory Performance) magic on the Accord coupe, but the spell didn’t quite turn it into the fabulous sporty car they’d like you to think it is. Click here to read my Autos.ca Test Drive.
What I think: Buying a used Cadillac STS
The 2005 STS brought rear-wheel drive performance back to Cadillac’s full-size sedan range. It was a promising move, but a few years later, it seems that this car doesn’t hold up its end where reliability is a concern. Click here to read my Autos.ca Used Vehicle Review.
What I think: Buying a used Chevrolet Optra
You’ll be forgiven if you’ve never heard of the Optra, a Korean-made car sold briefly by Chevrolet in the mid-2000s, as an attempt to capture some of Kia and Hyundai’s (among others) small car sales. By the relative few accounts available, it wasn’t a great car when it was new, and even if it had proven reliable (it’s really hard to tell), do you really want to take a chance on a rubbish car no one knows how to fix?

What I think: 2012 Toyota Prius V
Those who don’t “get” Toyota’s Prius probably never will. For those who do, though, there’s even more to like in the 2012 Prius V, one of two new variants added to this hybrid poster child’s lineup. Read my Quick Spin review at Autos.ca.
What I think: 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan
Tiguan: weird name, nice little crossover. I’m just not sure it’s nice enough to warrant it being so much more expensive than its competition. Read my Autos.ca Test Drive here.
