Drove this briefly at the Mosport DDT during a dealer demo event and came away pleasantly surprised - handsome exterior, nice rich interior with red leather inserts and competent crisp handling. A great sporty daily driver that you can live with
2015 Mustang GT Premium Fastback - Very powerful engine, a whole new modern muscle design, upscale interior and a significant exterior, without doubt Ford Mustang deserved to be ranked as number 1 on the Affordable Sports Cars”.
Much improved than the Corollas of yore, the 2015 example that I got to drive as a rental had many trickle down features and styling that made it look like a mini-Camry. Not sure I liked the interior though - it didn't seem to belong in such a small little car...
MINI JCW Coupe - a really fun little car that drives like a go-cart. Nice quirky interior with all manners of switches and toggles even though I am not too crazy about the exterior. Acceleration is deceptively fast but where this car falls down is its cost - unless you are a die-hard mini fan, for the price there are many many many other alternatives out there...
Nissan Quest - a really big and looooong vehicle that is a little underpowered and a bit difficult to maneuver because of its size. Interesting interior with coloured textured surfaces and unusual panel layouts that was quite refreshing.
- terrible name, long nose, and looks that I still have trouble digesting but great interior and very spirited acceleration. Great fun to blast down the highway at night with the top down but for the price I want a better looking vehicle!
Dutch Dreams (St Clair + Bathurst) - What a fun ice cream shop! Had to line up for half an hour even at but was rewarded with creamy ice cream atop a delicious in-house waffle cone that was also topped with fresh fruit - highly recommended.
Zakkushi (Carlton and Ontario) - Another new izakaya entrant with a focus on proper grilled skewers - i. they have chicken skin, heart, etc etc that imho a "proper" izakaya (居酒屋) should have. I tried it and although a bit pricey it wasn't bad.
