The sky turned black at about 4:30 p.m. In a matter of minutes, the sunny, hot and windy day turned cool and rainy, with blasts of crazy wind. By the time the summer storm passed over our cottage on Bobs Lake near Westport, Ont., hundreds of trees were down, including several on my buddy’s property up the lake.

Kia has an affordable vehicle that can be many things to many people. The 2013 Soul is a compact wagon/hatchback runabout that looks at ease both downtown in in the 'burbs, and offers style, space and a high level of features.

It's still primarily an American car, as most design and engineering work was done by various Toyota divisions here and assembly is at the Georgetown, KY plant.

The previous allroad was based on the larger A6 Avant (Audi speak for station wagon), which resided a bit further up the ladder in the near-luxury market. It came with one of my favorite Audi engines, the 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6. Besides offering the V6 engine, the older allroad did have some off-road pretensions. For instance, it came with an adjustable height suspension to increase the vehicle’s ground clearance.

People all over the world can recognise a Mercedes-Benz straight away. The classic Mercedes face runs like a golden thread through the brand’s history. The features of the style-defining front design are both simple and complex, especially in the S-Class: it is strong in character and unmistakable, and instead of following fads it exudes confidence and status. An alpha leader, dynamic yet not aggressive, sophisticated yet not fancy.
