Living With The 2019 Mazda CX-9 Review And Impressions

2018 Mazda CX-9 GT
There are a couple of things that stand out about the three-row Mazda CX-9 when you drive it for an extended period of time. For one, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 Signature feels more luxurious and expensive than the logo on the steering wheel would have you believe. It's not some German luxury mid-size SUV, but sometimes it feels that way....

2020 Jeep Gladiator First Drive Review

2020 Jeep Gladiator Review
We finally get the behind the wheel to review the new Jeep Gladiator. Sacramento, CA — We hear it all the time: “It’s a Jeep thing.” We heart it quite a bit during our first contact with the new 2020 Jeep Gladiator. Mud all over the cabin? “It’s a Jeep thing.” Zero doors, zero windshield, zero wind protection? “It’s a Jeep...

The Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO: Fancy Street-Legal Race Car

2020 Mercedes-AMG GT
AMG’s current GT3 and GT4 motorsport experience has spawned the brand’s most potent ever road-going race car. The GT R PRO is extremely competent and capable in the right hands, and conditions. As I stood in the rain, next to the limited-edition Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO lined up and ready to head out on the famed Hockenheim race track, my...

2019 Mazda CX-5 Review: Boost-worthy

video
The 2019 Mazda CX-5 gains more power thanks to some delicious boost which suits its personality perfectly. An already great SUV now has more to offer. Sports cars are no longer what they once were. For the last few years, sports SUVs (sports-sports? We need a new name for these vehicles…) have become the norm as they continue to increase...

2020 Mercedes-AMG GT First Drive Review: Dialed For Speed

video
In a world where supercars have nearly become common, Mercedes-AMG keeps its AMG GT Coupé and Convertible fresh with all the right touches, and sounds. But will it be enough or is it still too much? Stuttgart, Germany. It’s all quite crazy when we think about it; if you’re in the market for a high-powered performance car under a quarter-million...

2019 Lincoln Navigator Review: For The Navigator Status

video
Lincoln is hard at work revamping its brand image but the Navigator is more than a simple Lincoln – it is the only vehicle from this company that has any clout. Much like Cadillac and its mighty Escalade, the Navigator stands alone among all the other Lincolns currently available in showrooms – ask almost anyone to name one Lincoln and...

2019 Mazda3 AWD First Drive Review: Blurring genres

video
Mazda has achieved what many volume carmakers thrive for and that is delivering all the goods in one desperately attractive package. The new Mazda3 is brilliant. Sacramento, CA. Mazda has forever been the underdog among Japanese carmakers in North America. This was mostly the result of their different approaches to design and engineering – the rotary engine comes to mind… And...

2019 Jaguar I-PACE EV400 Review: A Tempting Proposition 

video
The Jaguar I-PACE is the first mass-produced 100% electric SUV sold under $100k in Canada, and it’s good. But not yet as good as it will be. Jaguar’s first all-electric vehicle is cleaning up everywhere it competes as a car or vehicle of the year nominee. Now that we’ve spent a week with the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace, we’re almost convinced...

2019 Nissan Altima-TE AWD Review: Selfish And Proud

The Nissan Altima-TE AWD is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise dreary mid-size sedan segment. It's not serious. It's not even mature. Based on the 2019 Nissan Altima, the Altima-TE is about as much fun as you can have in a car in winter. With a major investment in its new Altima, giving it a brand new platform as...

2019 Nissan Altima AWD Winter Drive: Wandering Off The Path Of Mainstream SUVs

Nissan has added a powerful weapon to the redesigned Altima with the addition of all-wheel drive. We tested this new Nissan Altima AWD in the heart of winter. So what actually happened here. Why are SUVs so popular? Is it because people actually want them or because manufacturers shove them down our throats seeing that they are generally more profitable...
