Every automaker has that handful of models so special, so impactful, that they write entire chapters of the company’s history on their very own. For BMW the 2002 is high on that list.

Along with the rest of the Neue Klasse sedans and coupes from the 1960s and early ’70s, the 2002 is legendary for the key role it played in establishing the marque’s performance mettle and putting it firmly on the map as a world-class sporting car company.

Yesterday’s announcement that Toyota is shuttering its Scion brand is a good example of marketing plans that looked better on paper than in showrooms. Conceived for the U.S. market in 2002 as a way to attract younger buyers to Toyota products, the appeal being that the cars weren’t labelled as Toyotas.

Toyota News  - 
 
Toyota has officially announced that their North American sub-brand Scion will be discontinued. The FR-S, iM and iA will all be rolled into Toyota starting August, while the tC will be discontinued. The sub-compact SUV CH-R will be launched as a Toyota.

Employees of the brand were informed of the decision yesterday before the Japanese manufacturer made the announcement public this morning.

Scion had been introduced in 2002 as a youth-oriented, North American exclusive lineup. The xB, sporting the S badge, set a milestone both for the brand and for the market, introducing their version of a box-shaped, compact urban utility vehicle, a style other manufacturers have since embraced. The introduction in 2012 of the result of their collaboration with Subaru, the FR-S, sparked a renewed interest in the Scion brand, especially since at equal model, the Toyota counterpart was more affordable.

These events were not enough to counteract the hits and miss, the thinning lineup and a disinterested target audience less and less willing to dig into their pockets to purchase a new car.

With the top undrafted junior hockey players in the country making their way to Vancouver for the BMO CHL/NHL Top Prospects game on Jan. 28, we decided to sit down with a handful of them to get their take on something other than hockey. What’s that, you ask? Well, cars, of course.

Normally when the person you’re driving with takes their hands off of the wheel at 130 km/h, it’s cause for alarm. How, then, to explain the sensation that comes over you when the individual in the left hand seat has had their hands in their lap the entire time you’ve been travelling at speeds that would land you in traffic court on public roads? Honestly, when it happened to me, I was absolutely calm. Part of that was because I knew it was going to happen, but mostly my serenity flowed from the fact that the actual pilot of the car in which I was riding wasn’t there in the cabin with us at all.

CHL Stars in Cars: Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds forward Zach Senyshyn

http://autotrdr.ca/OKeNXK

Described by fellow draftee (and perhaps future teammate on the NHL’s Boston Bruins) Jake DeBrusk as “a really good guy,” the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds’ Zack Senyshyn remains modest, and appreciative of how far he’s come. He’s especially proud of being a member of the “Soo” Greyhounds, recently ranked by The Hockey News as the best non-NHL hockey franchise. Oh, and the “player to watch” on the Greyhounds, according to that very same publication? Well, Zach Senyshyn, of course!

Continental told the NHTSA that the units were manufactured between 2006 and 2010 and that they may fail and cause the airbags to inadvertently inflate, or may fail to deploy in the event of a crash.

The decision to lease or buy is important and often misunderstood, not to mention swirling with math, terminologies and misconceptions. Some consumers discount the idea of leasing right from the get-go, while others find it to be the most worry-free and confident way to get behind the wheel.

Buying is good, and so is leasing. It all depends on a long list of factors and considerations.

It’s a fact. As our dollar fell, so used vehicle exports grew. Last year Americans bought 200,000 Canadian used vehicles and shipped them south – not all via autoTRADER.ca, grant you, but it’s a significant increase over previous years and the highest level of used car sales to the US since 2002, according to industry analyst Denis Desrosiers.

But this isn’t the first time Cadillac’s tried to resuscitate itself (remember the Caddy that zigs?). So understandably, there’s some scepticism abroad. In 2015, Mr. de Nysschen was standing next to a pre-production CT6 on a stage in New York; in Los Angeles at the car’s international launch last week, here we were next to a fleet of newly minted production CT6s, all buffed and ready for close scrutiny and actual road testing (it goes on sale in March).

Clearly, unless the Cadillac people are completely delusional, the CT6 better be some kind of car.

A perfect sport-ute for dashing through the snow in the lap of German-engineered luxury and efficiency, while looking like a total boss in the process. The BMW X5 has become one of the most instantly recognizable luxury utility vehicles on the road, not to mention one of the most popular. With plenty of selection, high-end feature content, and a design that’s timeless and captivating, the 2007 to 2013 generation of BMW’s top-line sport-ute has seen its pricing come out of the stratosphere, putting a few-year-old copy within reach of common folk.

In fact, earlier copies of an X5 from this generation can be had from under $15,000 with reasonable mileage on the odometer. Hundreds of copies of the X5 are available across the country too – meaning finding the perfect combination of pricing, mileage and feature content should prove a cinch. Can you spend a bit more? Here’s a gem, offered by a BMW dealership for under $40,000 with a six-year warranty!

WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus became Canada’s queen of wrestling from the moment she stepped into the ring in 2000. When she retired in 2006, she was a seven-time WWE Women’s Champion who made it into the pages of history by setting a Guinness World Record for most wins by a female wrestling champ. Nowadays, the 5-foot-4 former ring queen is a fitness icon and entrepreneur with her own lifestyle brand, dubbed Stratusphere, which includes a line of yoga fitness products, wellness teas, and DVDs. She’s also an actress who stars alongside Danny Glover and Dominic Purcell in the upcoming flick, Gridlocked. On screen and on the road, Stratus embodies beauty and brawn – just like her wheels. She drives a 2015 Range Rover Sport SUV.
