‘Community of compassion’ nears completion Six families to move into new Habitat for Humanity development later this summer CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com

W

ith an enthusiastic fist pump – and an ‘Oyeh!’ for good measure – the Said Hasan kids ran up the steps to their brand new Habitat for Humanity home in Etobicoke last Thursday and called dibs on their favourite rooms. “This is unbelievable. This is the first time I’ve seen it complete...I wanted to keep it a surprise and I’m just amazed,” said 11-year-old Malika, pointing to the big, bright bay window in the front bedroom she claimed as her own. “You do not know what this means to my family. It means a brand new start.” The Said Hasan family – including Malika’s dad Ghafoor, mom Vera, older sister Afsona, 20, and little brother Zainulla, 6 – are just one of six low-income families who will be moving into Habitat for Humanity Toronto’s newest development on Acme Crescent (near Kipling Avenue and Dixon Road) this summer. “The groundbreaking here at Acme was on Sept. 10, and since then we’ve come to build six wonderful homes, which six wonderful families will be moving into over the next month or so,” Natasha Ward, Habitat for Humanity’s event co-ordinator, said at the key exchange ceremony. “We are so grateful to the hundreds of volunteers who have made this day possible by building the homes.” Volunteers aren’t the only ones who get in on the grunt work, though.

Vera Kuznetsova along with her daughter Malika and son Zainulla wave from their bedroom window in their new home, built by Habitat for Humanity. Six low-income families will be moving into the development on Acme Court this summer.

In return for their no-profit, interest-free mortgage, Habitat for Humanity partner families like the Said Hasans put in more than 500 hours of “sweat equity” construction work on their homes and the homes of others in order to make their dream of home ownership a reality. For Vera, the end result was well worth both the work and the wait. “For our family, this day means

so much; it’s a day which will be remarkable for the rest of our lives. This day, July 19, 2012, will be a day of our new life beginning,” she said. “We have been waiting for this day more than two years.” Currently, the Said Hasan family lives in a cramped apartment in East York. Their upcoming move on Aug. 1 will mean a whole new neighbourhood, more space

to move around, and individual rooms for everyone. Vera’s favourite room in the new house, she said, is the spacious kitchen – complete with brand new, shiny white appliances. Zainulla is looking forward to running around in the backyard, while Malika is anxious to have her friends over to hang out in her bright new room. All of it was made possible by

their home’s sponsor, Right at Home Realty. “On behalf of our 2,200 sales people, six offices, and our admin staff, the contributions that went into this house were made by not only the company, but all of our agents who have had the opportunity to sponsor this home by contributing a certain amount per transaction,” said Howard Drukarsh, the company’s cofounder and vice president. “Right At Home has been at this, I think, for five years and we’re delighted to see that there is actually something concrete that now we can say we were a part of.” Drukarsh was just one of a crowd of people on hand at Thursday’s key exchange ceremony to welcome the Said Hasan family to Etobicoke. Rev. Paul Kang of nearby St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (situated at Royal York and Dixon roads) was also in attendance, taking the time out to bless the Said Hasan family’s new home, and extol the virtues of their new community. “What makes a community special to me, what I think gives a community its identity, is the people,” he said. “The more I get to know the people that make up this community, the more I see something special – people from different backgrounds, people of different ages, different ethnicities, different incomes levels and different faith traditions coming together and starting to work together in the spirit of cooperation to build a community of compassion.”

and I feel confident that I will be competitive with the world’s best in August.

Etobicoke (from Nobleton, Ont.) about five years ago

Approximate date(s): Aug. 3 Online presence: Twitter @jasonburnett_; Facebook fan page Jason Burnett; Website jasonburnett.ca Q&A: 1. What are you most looking forward to at the Games? I am looking forward to seeing my fellow teammates from around the world, and to have the chance to win another Olympic medal for Canada. 2. What’s your training strategy? I have been training, what I believe

will be, the most difficult routines of the competition, and working on becoming as consistent as possible. 3. Reflections on how far you’ve come? In July of 2010 I broke my leg very badly and needed a six-month recovery. I was recovered by January of 2011 but I felt like I was starting at zero all over again. In the last yearand-a-half I have done everything possible to get back to the top,

4. What would you like to say to the folks back home? I want the folks back home to know that Canada has more Olympic trampoline medals than any other country, and we’re aiming to keep that record. 5. Trivia: Won a silver medal at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. I hold world records for the most difficult routines completed in competition (18.8) and in training (20.6). I was Michael Cera’s stunt double in the movie “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”. And I am a philosophy and religion major at the University of Toronto.

Balance needs of all cyclists L

ike many issues in Toronto, cycling and where it takes place has become one pitting the political left and right against each other. They are battling it out on the floor of council, and sadly also on the streets of our city. As North York Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong told Toronto Community News in our special feature on cycling in the city on pages 10 and 11 of today’s newspaper, the main bone of contention is lack of space on Toronto’s streets. “Because there’s a limited amount of geography, pedestrians, cyclists and motorists are all competing for the our view same space,” he explained. And nobody seems willing to Recreational give up any ground. There are two kinds of cyclists and commuter in Toronto, those who ride to commute and those who ride cyclists must for recreation. What we don’t want to see is the political battles be considered ending up costing either groups of riders. We need good and safe cycling routes along our streets for those who depend on their bikes to move around. We also need recreational runs that all can enjoy at a relaxed pace. And we don’t need one at the expense of the other. As part of our feature today, we decided to take a look at nine bike rides that recreational riders across Toronto could enjoy. All these rides are on bike paths, separate from city roads and free of cars for almost their entire routes. These are runs that both experienced riders and those who are new to cycling can enjoy by themselves or with their families, confident that they won’t have to negotiate through busy traffic or dangerous intersections. Hopefully readers will try one of these rides for themselves. There are some great choices and they highlight much of Toronto’s natural, and far too often hidden, beauty. Valleys make up so much of our city’s landscape, and planners have not been shy about running cycling (and pedestrian) paths along them. There are some beautiful runs through Taylor Creek, along the Don River and Highland Creek that have riders thinking they are miles away from Canada’s largest city. The featured rides also focus on the close connection between the city and Lake Ontario. While it is not yet possible to ride along the lake from one end of Toronto to the other only on a bike path, large sections are accessible. There are no shortages of great, safe rides in the city and we encourage our readers to try one of the runs we’ve highlighted today. Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

Olympic opening ceremonies are a capital idea

A

re you as psyched as I am for the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics tomorrow night in jolly old London? What can I say? They always reel me in like a prized tuna. The best part of the festivities for my money is when the athletes enter the stadium. As soon as I hear each country introduced my mind goes into overdrive, just like it used to when I was in public school. Back then, whenever I heard a country name I would blurt out the capital city faster than Jesse James on steroids. I swear I knew every capital when I was a kid. (For the record, I swear I didn’t swear as a kid.) My favourite capital was Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. It was always my numero uno because it was fun to say. I still get a kick out of saying it. I also knew that the capital of Paraguay was Asuncion and the capital of Uruguay was Montevideo and I never confused them. Today? The capital swagger is gone. With good reason. There are 204 teams in these Summer Olympics. How can I be expected to

but seriously

jamie wayne

know 204 capitals when I didn’t know there were that many countries? There aren’t, as it turns out. There are actually only 196 independent countries. Three of them are newer and don’t have Olympic national bodies yet, so only 193 will be represented in London. The balance of the teams is made of 11 territories. Needless to say, considering I didn’t know there would be 11 territories competing in London I couldn’t possibly know their capitals, either. There’s another reason remembering capitals isn’t as easy as it once was is because many capitals themselves are not what they used to be. There have been several capital city name changes over the years. I couldn’t tell you what they all are, I haven’t kept up. Still, I’ll give it my best shot Friday. Another area I’ll be focusing on is flag identification.

I used to be pretty good at that, too. But, like capitals, many flags have changed. And, as usual, I’ll be testing my knowledge on national anthems. I like to see if I can hum the appropriate national anthem when each contingent of athletes walks in, but I seem to know fewer and fewer anthems these days, also. Trying to predict who the flag bearers are for each country is always a good time, as is trying to pick out countries just by looking at the teams’ outfits. Lastly, I always try to see if I can come up with an official sponsor from each country – such as the Official Burrito of Mexico, the Official Souvlaki of Greece, the Official Pasta of Italy, and so on. One official sponsor I never have to guess at is ours. That’s because, unlike capitals, anthems and flags, it never changes over the years – the Official Excuse: Lack of government funding. n Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously. The topics? Not so much. Contact him at jamie. wayne@sympatico.ca

To the editor: It’s disheartening to learn funding for many of the youth programs and infrastructure projects in Toronto’s priority neighbourhoods is running out. These initiatives provide young people with opportunities to gain valuable skills they can use to pursue job training or a post-secondary education, which will assist them in succeeding in the future. While these programs are important, they are only the first step and more needs to be done to stem poverty in priority neighbourhoods. There have been many media reports and academic studies that have documented the difficulties of young people and recent graduates entering the labour market. This literature shows the situation is considerably more dire for racialized graduates. The most effective way of eliminating poverty is to tackle its root causes: underemployment, unemployment and lower average pay for marginalized communities. Numerous studies have shown that marginalized communities have lower employment and participation rates and are compensated less for their labour through no fault of their own. By minimizing labour market inequities, we as a society, can reduce poverty and its associated effects. Richard Sunichura

Metrolinx defends timeline for electrification of air rail link Critic charges provincial agency is dragging its feet on plan rahul gupta @TOinTransit A member of the Clean Train Coalition has accused

Metrolinx of holding up work on plans to electrify a future rail service providing express trips from Union Station to Pearson International

Airport. T h e c o a l i t i o n’s R i c k Ciccarelli said the provincial transit planning agency is taking far too long to com-

plete its study on electrification of the future air rail link, which will significantly increase the number of GO diesel trains traveling along

the Georgetown South rail corridor in the city’s west end by the start of the Pan American Games. As a part of the study which commenced in 2010, Metrolinx has hired an international engineering company, Parsons Brinckerhoff, which specializes in electrification projects, to work on preliminary technical designs for the link. The work will also be included in an environmental assessment (EA) required by the province. Metrolinx hopes to complete the study and EA by 2014, with conversion to electric expecting to take a further three years – if the $444-million project receives funding from the provincial government. To Ciccarelli and the majority of the 70 or so residents who attended a public meeting recently on the project, that timeline is unacceptable. “It shouldn’t take four years for a study,” said Ciccarelli, who wants the line to be fully electrified when it opens. “They’ve known the main points about electrification and then sat for a year repeating the same stuff.” When the link opens in 2015, the number of trains running on diesel along the corridor will swell from 24 to 185 weekly, mainly due to 140 shuttles running an express service that will take riders from Union Station to the airport in 15 minutes. air quality concerns That worries Ciccarelli who says he’s skeptical about Metrolinx’s contention air quality along the corridor won’t be drastically worsened due to the increase in traffic because the trains use the cleanest diesel fuel available. “They’re not taking into account people whose bedroom windows are less than 25 yards away from corridor,” he said. “There’s no such thing as clean diesel

any more than clean cigarettes.” Recently, the executive leading the Metrolinx electrification study said she sympathized with residents who are frustrated with the project’s progress. conversion complicated But Karen Pitre said conversion is a complicated process made more complex due to a lack of history in this country for such large-scale capital projects. “Absolutely we’re setting a precedent and if we don’t do this one right you can rest assured we’re not going to be able to go any further,” said Pitre, executive director of electrification for Metrolinx. She said there are no case studies her team has found where an entire rail service was converted from diesel to electric. Further adding to the challenge, according to Pitre, is the presence of freight trains also using the mixed grade corridor. “It would be great if we had dedicated corridor that was in a green field, but this is a much different scenario,” she said. Pitre said Metrolinx was working hard to complete the preliminary designs so it could move onto the next phase of the project as quickly as possible. “There’s reasons why things take time. It’s not because of bureaucracy or anyone dragging their heels but because we’re trying to work through the details that have to go into (electrification).” electrification possible Pitre said she was confident the province remains open to eventually approving electrification of the link. “The fact we’re trying to understand what’s involved and the costs for conversion is a pretty good indication that there’s a direction they’re going in,” she said. Metrolinx’s board of directors has already recommended electrifying both the Georgetown as well as Lakeshore rail corridors. Ontario minister of transportation Bob Chiarelli said a final decision on conversion won’t take place until after the air rail link opens. “That train has left the station,” said Chiarelli at a recent press conference.

YORK: While plans are in the works to eventually close what is an approximately one-kilometre gap between Crawford-Jones Memorial Park (near Weston Road and Hwy. 401) and Cruickshank Park in Weston, local riders in York can still enjoy a pleasant ride. However, the gap prevents Rexdale and west North York residents from being able to use what is otherwise an essentially

BLOOR WEST: For cyclists living in the downtown west end, who not only use their bikes for pleasure, but also for every day transportation, the most pleasant ride is one free from cars. And that is what makes the West Toronto Railpath a popular and pleasant shortcut between Parkdale and the Junction. The two-kilometre long trail

uninterrupted off-road path running from Steeles Avenue to downtown Toronto via the Humber and Martin Goodman Trails. The route from Cruickshank Park to Lake Ontario, save for a small stretch through local, residential streets near the Humber Marshes, is relatively unimpeded and takes, on average, an hour to complete one way.

begins at Cariboo Avenue, just north of the Dupont and Dundas intersection, and runs southeast to Dundas Street West at Sterling Road with various access points. Built on abandoned railway beds, the West Toronto Railpath was completed in 2009. It is an asphalt path lined with greenery, indigenous plantings and brick buildings.

Etobicoke ETOBICOKE: From the Humber River Pedestrian Bridge, cyclists have two options: head up the river path to the northern reaches of Etobicoke, or west along Etobicoke’s picturesque Lake Ontario waterfront. The latter, two-kilometre option is the more scenic, and has the added bonus of no traffic – unless, of course, you consider the steady stream of cyclists, in-line skaters, dog walkers, and family picnickers out for some fresh air and exercise. For the hardcore cyclists, the waterfront trail boasts separate, paved lanes for bikes, while for those out for a more leisurely ride, there are plenty of stops along the path – take in some history at the Palace Pier

But for many bike enthusiasts, the dream is to see this tree-lined trail, winner Lake Ontario

Cyclist-driver conflict ‘only natural’ in Toronto Motorists, pedestrians, cyclists all competing for limited space DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com

W

hen Rob Ford was elected Mayor of Toronto in 2010, one might be forgiven for thinking that bicyclists’ time had passed. As a councillor, Ford famously compared cycling in traffic to “swimming with the sharks,” adding, “Roads are built for buses cars and trucks, not for people on bikes. My heart bleeds for them

when someone gets killed, but it’s their own fault at the end of the day.” At council’s inaugural meeting, the mayor’s chosen keynote speaker Don Cherry arrived in a hot pink suit, which he said he wore for “all the pinkos out there that ride bicycles and everything.” The new administration signalled early that it would take a very different route than the previous crew under David Miller, which favoured separated bike lanes on roads. In short order, city council had removed bike lanes on Pharmacy and Birchmount avenues in Scarborough at the request of the local councillor, and another, higher-profile bike lane on Jarvis Street despite the protests of the

local councillor there. The shift was a result of more than the will of a mayor more comfortable on four wheels than two. Since before amalgamation, cars and bicycles have had an uneasy relationship on Toronto streets. Don Valley East Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong, who chairs the city’s works committee, said the conflict is only natural, “because there’s a limited amount of geography — pedestrians, cyclists and motorists are all competing for the same space.” As works chair, Minnan-Wong has carriage of the Ford administration’s cycling plan, which in broad strokes is about separating motorists from cyclists wherever possible.

Ford ran on creating a Bikeway Network — which includes 100 kilometres of off-road recreational bike paths. Some of those paths running along Hydro corridors were approved by the previous administration. Minnan-Wong has pressed the issue further, and the city embarked on a plan to make some separated bike lanes in the downtown — initially on Wellesley and Sherbourne streets, and eventually along Richmond and Adelaide streets in the core. “Everybody has a different opinion,” said Minnan-Wong. “But I think it makes for a safer arrangement for cyclists, and I think the majority of cyclists prefer it.” Scarborough Centre

Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker chaired the works committee during Miller’s term, and has made a point of making a 20-kilometre commute from his home in Scarborough to city hall by bicycle. He said the separated lanes are a good idea — but maintains that the mayor’s plan focussing on off-road cycling doesn’t help the growing number of utilitarian cyclists in the city. “Separated bike lanes are good, and every cyclist and driver should welcome them,” he said. “Those lanes are complicated things to do, I encourage the bike community and Denzil MinnanWong. But one kilometre of separated bike lane doesn’t make up for cancelling 100 kilometres of bike lanes on roads.”

Heading towards the new crossing at Pottery Road, a lone chipmunk tempts fate crossing the path. Further south, where the trail dips underneath Eastern Avenue, a flock of geese stand guard. with mud, and several bridges have now been washed out. Just past Lumsden Avenue, a downed tree called for a cyclist ‘portage’ through the branches. Two of the wooden bridges are washed out, and two others have the safety railing snapped off. It’s a reminder that even in well-groomed Toronto parks, nature still reigns supreme.

NORTH YORK: The five-kilometre ride between Edwards Gardens and Taylor Creek Park is an easy run—for the most part. However, even experienced cyclists will want to get off their bikes and walk the wooden foot-bridge that curves over the CNR tracks cutting through the valley.

Scarborough

SCARBOROUGH: The ride from Greenvale Park, just north of Kingston Road across from the Guildwood GO station, through the Highland Creek Valley and along the shores of Lake Ontario to the Port Union Village Common Park, is a run of approximately 12 kilometres which takes in a wide variety of features and parkland through southeast Scarborough. The run starts with a steep hill and a warning for cyclists to dismount at the Greenvale Park entrance, but levels off nicely. It is a bit smelly, due to sewers running underground near the Lawrence bridge, along the creek into Morningside Park. After that it rolls through the Ontario Lake Scarborough University of Toronto campus.

Cyclists cross under Old Kingston Road and continue along beside the creek all the way to Lake Ontario. There’s lots of opportunity to see wildlife on this ride, a pair of deer were spotted by the Morningside bridge, and it’s a fun run for kids with mostly level riding and lots of sites to see.

Beach

BEACH: On most weekends, taking a bike to the Beach is an exercise in frustration: just the same as is taking a picnic, a volleyball, a pair of roller blades or an automobile is. Everyone else has the same idea. On weekdays, it’s a different story; the run east from Leslie Street will take you a good five kilometres, past the new TTC vehicle storage facility, a skateboard park, and the millennium-project Woodbine Park into the

Beach proper. It’s good manners to stay off the Boardwalk – there are still a few visitors taking a stroll – but it’s a nice, safe ride through Woodbine Beach, Kew Gardens and Beaches Park. The bike route officially ends around Balsam Avenue; but a few hundred metres further east, and you’ll end up at the stunning R.C. Harris Water Filtration Plant.

Bike lanes, paths in Etobicoke don’t connect well >>>from page 1 feedback. “That’s true for Scarborough, where we’ve removed bike lanes this year; Etobicoke where there doesn’t seem to be a good movement toward ensuring when we’re doing infrastructure upgrades, we’re putting in sufficient room for cyclists on the roads. Downtown, again, we’re also removing bike lanes.” Bike lanes and paths exist in Etobicoke, but like elsewhere in the city, the lanes don’t form a contiguous network. Cyclists ride here, hop on and off the path there. In fact, Royal York Road will become the sole con-

Veterans asking for community help >>>from page 1 Royal Canadian Navy Volunteer Reserves from 1951 to 1956. “We do a lot for the community. Our Poppy Fund funds organizations like War Amps. Our president just presented a cheque to Etobicoke General Hospital. When there is a need, we reach out to help.” Difficult times combined with dwindling numbers of legionnaires finds the tables turned and legions reaching out to community benefactors, said Bill MacAulay, who served in Germany, Cyprus and Holland and was a member of a British Legion before he joined Branch 286 some 44 years ago. “At one time, there was a nucleus of veterans, 1,500 members at this legion. There was esprit de corps. In a time of need, we’d circle the wagons and do whatever was needed. Because of changing times, that no longer happens. We need to reach out to governments, benevolent people in the community.” To that end, a Raise Our Roof fundraiser will take place on Sunday, Aug. 12 at the legion from 1 to 5 p.m. with entertainment provided at no charge by Gary Gale and

Ford C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid expected to deliver 550-mile range The new Ford C-MAX Energi is expected to achieve more than 20 miles of electric-only range and a 550-mile overall range. With a maximum electric-only speed projected to top that of Prius plug-in, C-MAX Energi drivers might be able to reach wherever they’re going a little faster, too. Topping it off, C-MAX Energi delivers fuel economy that is the equivalent of (US) 95 mpg equivalent (MPGe) combined city/highway. C-MAX Energi is part of Ford’s first dedicated line of hybrid vehicles in

North America and will soon be available for order at Ford’s certified electricvehicle dealerships. C-MAX Energi operates just like a traditional hybrid with two key differences – owners must plug in the vehicle using its charge port and C-MAX Energi has a larger battery pack. Already available for order is CMAX Hybrid – expected to be North America’s most affordable hybrid utility vehicle. C-MAX Hybrid and C-MAX Energi figure prominently in Ford’s rollout of five electrified vehicles this year. – Metroland Media

Outback, Legacy get

overhauled Subaru is proud to be different. For one, all of its models come standard with Subaru’s acclaimed symmetrical all-wheel drive system. And, being a relatively small automaker, Subaru is able to do a lot with a little, spinning several models off the same platform. The 2013 Subaru Outback and Legacy models are both very successful vehicles with combined sales of about 10,000 units a year (about 70 per cent Outback) in Canada last year. The mid-size Legacy sedan and the Outback crossover SUV that combines car-like handling and SUV versatility have undergone extensive changes for 2013 – the first major facelifts for them since the last full model change in 2010. Chief among the updates is a more powerful and more fuelefficient power plant – a 2.5-litre DOHC boxer four-cylinder engine that replaces a SOHC 2.5-litre boxer four-cylinder. Power jumps to 173 hp from 170 and torque rises to 174 lb/ft from 170. Combined with a new CVT transmission, the Outback now accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 9.6 seconds and the Legacy in 9.3 seconds compared with 10.2 and 9.5 seconds respectively in the outgoing models. Meanwhile, fuel economy has been improved eight per cent across the board, with the Outback now rated at 8.6/6.5L/100 km city/ hwy and the Legacy 8.4/6.0L.100 km city/hwy with the CVT. The Legacy is also offered with a six-speed manual transmission on the Base and Touring trims, while the top-level Limited gets a five-speed automatic, paired with either the 2.5-litre four banger or a 256 hp 3.6-litre boxer sixcylinder engine. On the styling front, the Legacy

has a stronger, sharper look while the Outback has a more aggressive appearance. All this results from new headlight, grille and front bumper re-dos. Inside, both models have a higher quality feel with new seat fabric and wood trim elements available. Drivability of both vehicles has also been improved through increased body stiffness and chassis improvements, resulting in reduced body roll, better handling and ride quality. In addition, the Outback has 220 mm of ground clearance if you have a need to do any off-road driving or travel rough cottage trails. During a brief ride-and-drive, we had an opportunity to take a 2.5i Outback as well as a 3.6R Outback out for short jaunts. The 3.6R was a Limited trim level with the EyeSight option and it was noticeably quieter and peppier than the four-cylinder model with the continuously variable transmission, which exhibited the familiar whine and high rev level that is common with CVTs. Subaru says floor vibration tests show the ride quality of the new Outback is now on par with the Legacy sedan. The 2013 Outback also gets a Five Star crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) in the U.S. Subaru is offering its new EyeSight driver assistance option only on Limited trim models of the Legacy and Outback for 2013. It will be rolled out in other models in the future. Subaru says the system assists the driver in making decisions for more safe and comfortable driving and to reduce driver fatigue. The EyeSight feature has shown to have a high ≼take rate≤ in Japan since its introduction there in 2010 as it now represents more

than 90 per cent of total sales in recent months. The system uses twin stereo cameras mounted on either side of the rearview mirror to provide a suite of driver assist functions including: pre-collision braking; precollision brake assist; pre-collision throttle management; adaptive cruise control; lane departure warning; lane sway warning; and lead vehicle start alert. The characteristics of the camera views are similar to the human eye in that they recognize objects, while other similar vehicle systems that use radar simply detect them without differentiating between vehicles and pedestrians, for example. The 2013 Outback is on sale now, the Legacy in August. – Neil Moore Metroland Media n AT A GLANCE: BODY STYLE: mid-size crossover SUV. DRIVE METHOD: front-engine, allwheel drive.

Audi takes Q5 to the

NEXT LUX LEVEL The 2013 Q5 is the latest salvo in Audi’s stated strategic plan to become the world’s leading luxury vehicle maker by 2020. In Canada we will get two gasoline versions a hybrid – and a diesel is finally coming. The Q5 marks the world premiere of Audi’s latest 2.0-litre fourcylinder TFSI engine featuring variable valve control, direct and “indirect� fuel injection system and integration of the exhaust manifold into the cylinder head. Another innovation is the “thermal management� system that heats up engine oil faster and also regulates coolant temperature between 85-107 Celsius for optimum thermodynamic efficiency. In the Q5, the 2.0-litre produces 225 hp and 258 lb/ft of torque and fuel consumption of 7.6L/100 km on the European combined cycle test. With a top speed of 222 km/h, it goes from 0-100 km/h in 7.1 seconds. The supercharged 3.0-litre TFSI engine is also new to the Q5, and replaces the naturally aspirated 3.2-litre FSI. It is rated at 272 hp and 295 lb/ft of torque giving it a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 5.9-seconds, a top speed of 234 km/h and combined Euro fuel rating of 8.5L/100 km/h. In Canada a seven-speed dualclutch automatic is standard for the 3.0 TFSI quattro. Standard transmission on the 2.0-litre is an eight-speed automatic. The hybrid starts with the 2.0-litre in this case developing 211 hp plus a 54 hp electric motor for combined power of 245 hp and 354 lb/ft of torque. With a 0-100 km/h time of 7.1 seconds, combined fuel consumption is rated at 6.9L/100 km/h. It can travel up to 3.0 km on electric power alone with a 100 km/h all-electric top speed. Standard on all versions is stop/

start which Audi estimates saves 0.3L/100 km. For 2013, all transmissions have wide gear spreads. The idea is long gear ratios on the upper gears help reduce fuel consumption, while the short gear ratios of the lower gears optimize in-gear response. Audi’s quattro permanent allwheel drive system is standard New is an electro-mechanical power steering system that gives the driver a better feel for the road with direct gearing but adjusting the level of power assist. It is set up so no energy is used when the steering is in the straightahead position. Optionally available is the Audi drive select system that allows the driver to change the operating characteristics of the throttle pedal, the shift points of the automatic transmission, the degree of power steering assistance and the operation of the automatic air conditioning system via four modes plus a fifth “Individual� the driver can tune to his/her own driving style. Don’t let the 2.0-litre’s size fool you. Despite its weight, the 2.0-litre is quick off the mark because the engine reaches maximum torque as low as 1,500 rpm and that power is on tap all the way to the top. The interior is clean with all controls easy to reach and understand and not a stitch out of place or an off kilter shut line to be seen. The controls have real chrome surrounds and the centre console is finished in a high-gloss black. There is a choice of three interior colours. It may be a luxury CUV but the Q5 can rough it if required with a maximum climbing angle of 31 degrees. The vehicle’s approach and departure angles are each 25 degrees while its ramp angle is 17 degrees. Ground clearance is 20

cm and stream-fording depth is 50 cm. In terms of cargo, the angles of the 60:40 split rear seat can be adjusted or folded with the remote seatback release. It also travels back and forth 100 mm for easier access or stowage. That increased cargo volume from 540 litres behind the seat to 1,560 litres folded. Hurrah for Audi for making its MMI (Multi Media Information) system the simplest to use yet with only four buttons instead of multi directional-multi angle click/ tilt wheels like others. The way Audi keeps upgrading, enhancing and re-thinking its cars and trucks is a case study on how to run a car company. Take a spin in the new Q5 when it gets here and you’ll see why Audi keeps gaining conquest buyers and market share. – Jim Robinson Metroland Media n AT A GLANCE: BODY STYLE: Premium compact SUV/CUV.
