2019 Jeep Cherokee Review: Scaling Back the Boldness

video
The Great Gretzky said it best when he uttered: “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” When Jeep introduced the current KL generation Cherokee as a replacement for the mediocre Liberty, they decided to push the boundaries of design. While the 2014-18 Cherokee proved to be popular, few will ever describe the Jeep as handsome, unless it was...

2019 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Review: Alternative Crossover

video
I did it. I pulled the trigger. I bought a new car and despite still wondering why I did it, I couldn’t be happier. Happy mostly because the 2019 VW Golf Sportwagen as I spec’d it out is the last of its kind. And although that may be the case, it’s quite popular. 2019 changes Volkswagen Canada has revised trims for...

2019 Subaru Ascent Premier Review: Out Of Nowhere And Straight To The Top

video
When news of the imminent arrival of a large 3-row midsize crossover from Subaru arrived, barely an eye-brow was lifted. With the interest in SUVs and all things non-car, it only made sense. Subaru was well equipped experience-wise thanks to one of the originators of the CUV genre, the Forester, and their uber-popular Outback. What wasn’t expected was the final...

2018 Volkswagen Atlas Review: The Huge Bottom Line

2018 Volkswagen Atlas
There are many ways to look at the coming of Volkswagen’s all-new large midsize 3-row SUV.  The current Touareg and previous Tiguan were not only outdated but met very few needs for consumers at large, this same group that cannot get enough of crossovers and SUVs. The demand for value and versatility plainly rendered the two VWs obsolete. The arrival...

2019 RAM 1500 Sport: Can Full-Size Trucks Be Pretty?

video
I’m dead serious! Twice now I’ve caught myself staring lovingly at the damned 2019 RAM, running my eyes over its bulging hood, swept-back sharp headlights, toned and muscular haunches and its massive rear tailpipes… I feel like I should report myself to the authorities. It's full-size trucks like the 2019 RAM 1500 that are doing damage to many a luxury...

1993 Mitsubishi Lancer GSR Evolution Review: When The JDM Owned It

1993 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution I GSR
The job is to drive, review and complain about new cars. I love the job. In fact, it’s not a job, it’s passion mixed in with sitting in front a of computer seven days a week over 50+ hours, travelling 18 hours to stay somewhere for 24 hours, drive a car, then travel back for 18 hours, in other...

2018 Volvo XC60 Inscription T8: Plug-In Hybrid Smoke In Mirrors

video
From the moment the Volvo XC60 arrived in showrooms for the 2010 model year, it took over as one of the best-selling models in the Swedish carmaker’s portfolio. In fact, with the occasional exception of the S60 out-selling the compact crossover, it regularly accounted for a quarter to a third of all new deliveries in Canada. This second generation XC60...

2019 Hyundai Kona 1.6T Ultimate AWD Review: The True Crossover

2019 Hyundai Kona 1.6T Ultimate AWDvideo
The beauty and the issue with the “crossover” is that it’s not bound by any conventions or a specific set of guidelines like a sedan or station wagon is. To think of it, the roofline must extend slightly towards the rear and the vehicle must feature a hatch. That’s it. I was about to add four doors but then...

2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Review: Now For All Jungles

video
I attended the launch event of the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler late last year. As you might expect, we did some road driving but the real action took place on the off-road courses. What stood out for me then was how relatively comfortable the Wrangler was on the beaten path. Many of these first drive happenings take place in areas...

2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo Review: The World’s Most Perfect Car?

video
Let’s consider the facts, shall we? It’s a Porsche. Let’s not beat around the bush. Audi, BMW and Mercedes make phenomenal cars and trucks. Cadillac, Genesis, Infiniti and Lexus can try as hard as they might but for the moment at least, the Germans are untouchable. Then there’s Porsche. All brands are heavily focused and determined to conquer the world...
