2018 Jeep Wrangler First Review

I’ve driven many new Jeep Wranglers over the last two decades. I love them every time but I never get upset when I return it a week later. The sole exception may have a green manual 2-door 2005 Unlimited but even then, I could not suffer through another week of shakes, noises, rattles and general torture and discomfort. Clearly...

2018 BMW M760Li xDrive Review

2018 BMW 7 Series
The first sign that you aren’t driving something ordinary can be found to the right of the parking brake button, just under the infotainment system’s rotary dial. That’s where the 2018 BMW M760Li xDrive tells you just what it’s packing under the hood, a mighty V12 engine that’s oddly advertised in various places on and in BMW’s flagship sedan. V12’s...

2018 BMW 530e xDrive Review

2018 BMW 530e xDrive
Luxury and performance automakers have a difficult task on their hands. They, like all other OEMs, are forced to design and build “greener” cars however, in North America at least, they remain mostly unpopular. Blame cheap energy and the fact that “buyers” are leasing and looking to get more for their money as many of these green vehicles are...

2018 Volvo XC60 T6 R-Design Review

2018 Volvo XC60 T6 R-Design
I’ve no shame in admitting that I’ve been a fan of Volvo cars for as long as I can remember. I’ve cycled in and out of “like” with most other car manufacturers but somehow Volvo’s managed to never fall out of favour with me. What makes Volvo special? It does things differently, despite past arguably unfavorable ownerships. It has...

Quick Review: 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT

2017 Chevy Camaro 1LT
This ain’t no base car I clearly recall thinking how pathetic neighbours of mine were when they came home in their brand-spanking new 1984 Chevrolet Camaro. I was all of 8 years old, clutching my 1984 edition of the Guide de l’Auto, and I knew that there was nothing sporty about the car - underneath its long bonnet was GM’s...

2017 Chevrolet Bolt Review

2017 Chevrolet Bolt Premier - 55
As “good” and “green” as electric cars can be, their impact on our environment will not be as magical as some agencies and governments would like you to believe. I’ve read a number of studies on the topic and a most recent one pertains to the well-to-wheels emissions of electric vehicles based on each country’s electricity fuel source. The...

2018 Kia Stinger GT First Review: Quite the Bite

2018 Kia Stinger GT Limited
I spotted a 1999 or 2000 Kia Sephia just before I was to jump on the plane for Los Angeles to test drive the new 2018 Stinger. Kia’s journey in North America, and the world for that matter, has been an epic one over the last two decades. The Stinger, it turns out according to Kia, is all about...

2017 Nissan Micra S Review

2017 Nissan Micra S
My son is not quite 15 months old and I’m already becoming nostalgic. I’ve caught myself watching videos of him when he was four, eight and even 12 months old almost tear-y eyed. He’s growing up so fast and I already miss the days when he was nothing more than a newborn. I’m beginning to feel the same way about...

Quick Review: 2017 Cadillac ATS 3.6L Coupe AWD

2017 Cadillac ATS Coupe AWD
Brilliant among regular folk I consider myself well-versed in all things automotive. In a regular crowd, I can out car-talk anyone but that can change when I’m hanging out with my auto-critic colleagues, or my competition. Some of these guys are specialized, more experienced or plain have a better memory than I do. This is when I realize I’m not...

2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid Review

2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid
It is rather unlikely that Acura knew or aptly projected the impact their MDX would have on their bottom line when they launched it back in 2000 as a 2001 model year luxury SUV. It quickly rose to become to best or second best-selling product in the line-up, outselling even the affordable ILX (the EL’s and CSX’ latest name)...
