2019 Subaru Forester Sport Review: Stays On Top

2019 Subaru Forester
The all-new 2019 Subaru Forester is at the top of its game. In fact, it’s always been that way and Subaru intends on keeping that way. It has been said that it is more difficult to stay on top than to get there. In the car business, there are two motives and they are quite simple: Get to the top...

2019 Porsche Cayenne S Review: S is For Shnell

2019 Porsche Cayenne S Review
If purists thought the Cayenne was an imposter in the Porsche lineup, demand proved them otherwise pretty darn quickly. Since 2002 (launched in Canada in 2003), the Porsche Cayenne no less than doubled Porsche’s sales. Now at its third generation - which the manufacturer calls E3 – it gets very little physical changes in terms of shapes. But in reality, every...

2019 Honda Accord Hybrid Review: This Is The Best Honda

2019 Honda Accord Hybrid
The redesigned Honda Accord will once again feature a hybrid engine version. The 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid could become a lot more relevant in the next few years as more and more buyers look to lower fuel consumption. Honda built its reputation on small, economical cars. In 2019 however, the most interesting members of its portfolio are its biggest vehicle. The...

2019 Honda Insight: A Better Civic?

After spending a week with a 2019 Honda Insight, and returning it, I’ve come to understand that it is the hidden gem in Honda’s compact car line-up. I loved it! The Honda Civic is the best-selling car in Canada and will, without a doubt, continue to be for years to come. The Civic’s value and reputation precede it and make...

Toyota 86 Has Us Living The Good Old Days With A Spot Of Nostalgia

With cars like the Toyota 86, Volkswagen GTI, Mazda MX-5 and other petrol-powered driver-focused cars, we are living through a good car era. It won’t last long so we should enjoy it. I’ve just spent a week cruising through my neighbourhood in a 2019 Toyota 86 TRD SE and I affirmatively soaked in every second of the experience. This car, perhaps...

2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback Review: Where The Future Should Be

I’ve had nothing but love for the new 2019 Toyota Corolla hatchback since the first time I drove it last summer. This time around, it’s 15 below and there’s 50cm of snow on the ground, and that got me thinking… This is not your typical review. While I will address driving impressions, and touch on the car’s main issues, I...

2019 Volvo V60 Review: It’s A Real Station Wagon

Volvo’s new 2019 V60 wagon combines it all, from elegance, to refinement, luxury and all the way to the versatility we expect in such a car. Volvo station wagons are among the most sacred of cars. They are, and have always been, a brick of safety, comfort and styling. None of this has changed today – if anything, it’s evolved...

2019 Toyota RAV4 Review: Because Winning Can Be Easy

2019 Toyota RAV4 Review
The compact SUV segment is constantly growing and reshaping itself to the benefit of buyers looking for space. The latest automaker to redesign their offering is Toyota with the brand-new RAV4. The new 2019 Toyota RAV4 will pick up where the previous generation left off as the king and best-seller in its segment and rise to a whole new level....

Living With the Mazda CX-5 GT: Long-Term Review

Mazda CX-5 long-term review
There were two reasons behind my interest in booking the Mazda CX-5 for a long-term review. First, I wanted to check if its slightly smaller cargo space than its main rivals would be a problem and second, I wanted to check the effectiveness of the SKYACTIV system in winter. The Mazda CX-5 is known for being fun to drive, but also...

2019 Kia Sorento Review: Easy Pleasing On The Surface

I got to drive the 2019 Kia Sorento for two weeks over the Holidays. We drove a fair amount, the family and I, hauled bags of gifts, the stroller, did the Costco runs – in other words, I lived with Kia’s current largest SUV. By day 3 or so, I’d grown accustomed to my loaded $48,865 SXL V6 tester despite some...
