    PROs: When you're talking about a behemoth 550 hp V8, it becomes earbleedingly obvious that its restrained engine roar is a key quality for those who love this type of car. Plus, it must be said that the 2015 XF is niftily agile despite its hefty weight. And the integrated transmission offered on the V6 version is no stranger to this purring sleekness of the new 2015 Jaguar XF. CONs: Certainly (and everyone knows it) a Jaguar, and especially the XFR-S, is not the type of cuddly beast that can...

The report also concluded that almost all models after 2010 have some potential vulnerability. Chrysler was rated the worst...

    Forbes Magazine published the results of a study carried out by the Illinois-based NCIB (National Insurance Crime Board) on the most-stolen new and used vehicles in the United States. By looking at a similar study on the Canadian market conducted by the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC), we can see that thieves have differing tastes on each side of the border. Among other things, the study shows that top-selling used cars are stolen more often than new cars. In fact, they are most likely to...

    GM's version of Black Friday last week included five new recalls affecting 307,079 vehicles worldwide. The exact number of units in Canada remains unknown, however. First, 202,115 Saturn Vue models from 2002-2004 are being recalled because the ignition key can be removed when the switch is not in the "off" position. GM is aware of two crashes and one injury that could be related to the defect. Other affected vehicles include: 72,826 Cadillac ATS sedans and Buick Encore SUVs from 2013 (...

    Pros: The 2015 Volvo S80 proves supremely comfortable both in terms of seating and ride quality. The interior is remarkably quiet and upscale, with arguably the best seats in its class, while power delivery is always smooth. Add top-notch safety and reliability, and you get an extremely relaxing driving experience for the entire family. Cons: The S80 is in desperate need of a do-over, with the last major revision dating back to 2007. The interior is a bit too plain, the steering lacks...

    Pros: The competitively priced 2015 Acura ILX proves to be a refined, sporty sedan that's fun to drive, especially when equipped with the Dynamic Package. Cons: Acura engineers should probably abandon the 2.0L SOHC engine, which sorely lacks power. Moreover, the Dynamic Package is not available with an automatic transmission. Some people would say the ILX lacks available high-tech features, but then again, it's not exactly a full-fledged luxury sedan...

    Pros: The 2014 Audi S5 Coupe stands out with a lowered and tightened suspension (featuring an available sport rear differential that can actively distribute power laterally across the rear axle for even more balanced handling), sexy and discreetly aggressive looks, standard all-wheel drive, a powerful V6 that's commendably fuel-efficient, as well as a rich combination of luxury, refinement, and technology. Cons: Once again, the MMI controls will not prove user-friendly to all drivers....
