Main theme: We share our impressions of the newest compact SUV from Mercedes-Benz, the boxy GLB. Then we answer viewer questions about run-flat tires on BMWs, comfortable cars for Canadian winters, and what to buy when you need to fit three car seats and a bunch of cargo.

Driven this week: 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB

Audience questions:

  • My new BMW X3 comes with run-flat tires. Is there anything I should know before swapping them for regular tires?
  • I want to replace my 2017 Subaru WRX with something a little more comfortable, but I still want a car that’s fun to drive and good in winter weather. What should I get?
  • What should I buy to replace my 2015 Honda Accord? I need to fit three car seats plus cargo.
