  • Thrill seekers and Bimmerphiles, rejoice! Your car has landed - The arrival of a car such as the 1M Coupe is a rare occasion under $100,000: More power, badass-ness and less weight are scarcely seen these days, when more eventually leads to more.

  • Solidly based on the oh-so-willing 1-Series coupe, the 1M takes every best aspect from the 135i, sheds some weight (35 kg to be exact) and extracts more juice from the twin-turbo inline 6-cylinder engine. It doesn't stop there as the magnificent 1M Coupé's body is 53 mm wider and 13 mm taller. Tracks also grow significantly (71 mm front and 46 mm rear), which is what gives the 1M its incredibly enticing stance. The lightweight, M-specific, BBS-inspired M3 GTS-sourced 19” wheels help as well.

  • The Golf Wagon, like the very few compact wagons offered today, are often overlooked and replaced on the considered list by a compact CUV. Although I’m a big fan of the latter, small wagons have plenty going for them, especially the Golf.

  • Small-sedan must-drive - On some levels, that’s not much of a surprise. In recent years, Korea’s proven they can build and sell some of the most striking models on the Canadian market-- and their latest work, the 2011 Elantra, might be the most important one yet.

  • First-class on a budget - The Hyundai Equus’s styling may not be directly attempting to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes, though the droves of people who stop curiously to check it out may suggest otherwise. Hyundai doesn’t put their stylized “H” badge anywhere on the Equus, inside or out, other than the trunk lid. Even the rims and steering wheel wear the Equus’s flying ‘bird’ badge instead—which is repeated on the front of the hood.

  • Kia's learned a new language - For the past few years, Kia has signed on the father of the Audi TT and VW’s New Beetle, German designer Peter Schreyer. Schreyer has been responsible for the fate of Kia’s design studio. The 2011 Forte is based on the same platform under the Hyundai Elantra. And like Hyundai, Kia has “got the religion” about styling – that styling is just as crucial to success, as is technology-based stuff.
