Despite its value-for-money and redesign, it’s unlikely this car will get anywhere near the sales numbers put up by its class-leading competitors: the Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Corolla and Mazda 3. Then again, it will likely continue to gain ground with buyers who want to spend less than $20,000 on a solid car loaded with extras. Read the full review at the link below the gallery.

There's an old saying about timing being everything in racing and Jeff Pappone's career as a motorsport correspondent shows that it also applies to journalists covering the sport too. His move into racing reporting more than a dozen years ago happened simply because he was in the right place at the right time.
Jeff went to the Canadian Grand Prix in 2000 to pursue a story about Nortel Networks and its involvement with the Williams Formula One team. Nortel's main competitor at the time, Lucent Technologies, had just signed a deal with the Jordan outfit and Jeff's assignment was to chronicle how the two high-tech rivals had brought their global telecommunications fight to grand prix racing.
On Friday morning, just before the cars were heading out on track on Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for first practice, Jeff got a call from his newspaper's sports editor who said his reporter was sick and he needed someone to cover the race. The rest, as they say, is history and Jeff has been on the motor racing beat ever since. He joined The Globe and Mail in late 2002.
Jeff has covered motorsport of almost every sort, from the controversial six-car 2005 U.S. Grand Prix at Indianapolis to drag racing on the tiny Caribbean island of Curacao.
He comes by his reporting honestly after being born in Edmonton where his father, a Canadian Press and Broadcast News reporter, was covering the provincial legislature. He has a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Ottawa and studied journalism at Algonquin College in Ottawa, where he graduated with highest honours.
