Listed: Six cars that replace the Toyota Matrix. Last year the Toyota Matrix was the 10th best-selling model in Canada’s most important segment, compact cars – 10,689 sold.

Listed: Six cars that replace the Toyota Matrix

That was good, but at its peak back in 2005, the Matrix was the runabout darling of 24,048 Canadians. We can all understand the Matrix decline. While the Matrix has always been exceptionally reliable, over the past few years, the competition has passed it in space, comfort, power and refinement. Toyota let the design and its execution grow old and stale for more many reasons, of course, but perhaps the biggest one was this: Americans don’t really like small hatchbacks and don’t buy them in great numbers. Toyota Motor Sales USA, before it stopped selling the model last year, generally moved about as many Matrix five-doors as Toyota Canada. So there’s won’t be an updated version of the Matrix heading to Toyota Canada showrooms this fall.

Oh, well. Over at Ford, there’s a hatchback version of the Focus and Kia has a hatchback version of the Forte. Losi: Products.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe XL AWD Luxury Road Test Review

The Tucson is a true compact, yet the regular five-passenger Santa Fe Sport is slightly shorter than most mid-size models and even some compacts, albeit wider than all compact models in the mainstream CUV sector. Being different than the status quo doesn't always work to an automaker's advantage, but Hyundai has nevertheless found a nice niche that has its Santa Fe achieving impressive sales numbers. In 2014 the five-passenger model found 27,580 Canadian buyers, whereas the larger seven-occupant Santa Fe XL added another 4,894 owners to Hyundai's SUV camp for a total of 32,474 down the road.

Along with the little Tucson's 11,856 sales, Hyundai's CUV tally came to 44,330 units last year. Of course success doesn't happen by chance. Likewise, inside they're mostly identical from the second row forward, which for the most part is a very good thing. Buying A New Or Used Cars Ontario.

UVC Webcam Devices. UVC webcam devices are collectively those USB webcams that are UVC compliant and are supported under Linux by the uvcvideo kernel driver module.

UVC Webcam Devices

Most modern webcams are UVC compliant, which is actually a good thing because, in the past, webcam drivers and interfaces were often proprietary (meaning that, in order to provide device support under Linux, driver developers may have needed to sign an NDA for chipset information, or had to proceed through time-consuming reverse engineering efforts that required one to decompile or monitor/sniff USB traffic). Some of the devices supported by this driver include: several USB2.0 Logitech Quickcams, such as: the Quickcam Orbit MP the Quickam for Notebooks Pro (Note that the Quickcam for Notebooks Deluxe is not a UVC webcam; it's supported by the gspca driver described below) the Quickcam Fusion All those webcams are 1.3MP devices.

They will also work in USB 1.1 mode, but are then limited to 640x480. Linux UVC driver & tools. Introduction Welcome to the USB Video Class Linux device driver home.

Of course, the ubiquitous 78.4 cubic feet of cargo space (with the rear seats folded), as well as the cloth/leather upholstery and power-adjustable driver’s seat further enhance this 5-passenger compact crossover’s image in the mind of the frugal, family-rearing commuter. Add to all that 18-inch alloy wheels, a roof rack and rear spoiler, not to mention standard trailer wiring and an available tow hitch, and this midlevel trim looks better and better. Of course full power accessories, including heated outside mirrors, grace this classy mini-ute, as do a leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob, simulated wood cabin accents, cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering.
