2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan First Review

Seattle, WA. This is Mercedes’ A Game. If M-Benz’s prices the new 2019 A220 sedan and A250 hatchback right, the competition barely stands a chance. I’m still completely blown away by what I experienced over a distance of nearly 500 km and many hours in this car’s presence. I don’t feel at all hesitant describing this A-Class as a true gamechanger....

2019 Nissan Altima First Review

Santa Barbara, CA. Nissan’s “good enough” approach to its cars is paying off huge dividends. Allow me to explain. Sometime around the development of the current Rogue, Nissan decided not to strive for “best in” anything with their vehicles. They figured that providing enough power, room, amenities, styling and whatnot was going to do the trick and sway consumers into...

2019 Audi Q3 First Review

2019 Audi Q3 Review
The 2019 Audi Q3 is the gateway to the Audi SUV lineup and plays a pivotal role in introducing younger customers or new clients. That means Audi had no room for error with this brand new generation of its Q3. Subcompact luxury SUVs are miniature versions of another product, and a more accessible and affordable one as well. While their bulkier...

2019 Lexus UX First Review

Best-selling cars in Canada 2018 - Lexus
Stockholm, Sweden. Lexus isn't about to let BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz have all the urban luxury SUV fun. Even if these three brands outrageously dominate the segment, the fortress is not impregnable. Lexus intends to prove it when it brings the new 2019 Lexus UX to the market in the first quarter of 2019. Step by step, Lexus is reaffirming its...

2019 Cadillac XT4 First Review

The first thought that came to me when I saw the 2019 Cadillac XT4 at this year’s New York auto show was that Cadillac had gotten the design right. Its new entry-level SUV looks like a Cadillac both inside and out, but unlike the XT5 which fades away on the road, the XT4 has a distinct visual signature that...

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe First Drive Review

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe 1
It’s definitely not easy for car companies to reinvent their SUVs while keeping them affordable, the market is undeniably boiling hot. But the Santa Fe took a big leap for 2019 on the styling front. You probably noticed that it takes it new facade from the Hyundai Kona, with its chiseled grille and pinched headlights. However, upgrades in other fields...

2019 Toyota Corolla HB First Review

Orford, QC. Hatchbacks used to be a very common sight. Every major carmaker offered one or more but at one point in time, they became uncool like the their closest relative, the station wagon. Unlike the latter, however and sadly, hatchbacks (HB) have made a serious comeback. Not all HBs are called as such. For example, the luxury brands...

2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt First Review

San Francisco, CA. Sometimes, the stars align perfectly. Once in a while, actions are taken and the outcome could not have been better planned. Fifty years ago, Steve McQueen opted to use a (two actually) dark Highland green 1968 390 V8 Ford Mustang GT Fastback with a 4-speed manual transmission for his movie but little did he, Ford, or anyone else for...

2019 Mazda MX-5 First Review

2019 Mazda MX-5
Toronto, ON. Once upon a time, there was a car that made everybody happy. Not only did it provide the most smiles per mile, but it was reliable and economical. So popular in fact was this car that it quickly became the best seller of its kind. Nearly 30 years after its introduction, the love for this car continues...

2018 Ford EcoSport Review

2018 Ford EcoSport
While some automakers saw the growth in popularity of subcompact SUVs coming from far away, others were slightly taken by surprise. Honda, Mazda, Chevrolet and Nissan were ready, Toyota and Ford not as much. While the first compensated by offering us a rebadged Scion (the C-HR), Ford turned to its international lineup and dug out the EcoSport. Introduced for the first...
