2020 Hyundai Sonata First Drive Review: Substantially Modernized

The Hyundai Sonata is one of few counter-SUV-current agents; an intermediate sedan meant to take a bite out of the 90 000 car sales of this type that are coming out of dealerships yearly in Canada, alongside the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Nissan Altima, to mention a few. Preferred, Preferred, Sport, Luxury and Ultimate are the four trims offered...

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 First Drive Review: Getting Surgical

Despite the recent incursion from Ford in the EV world with the Mustang Mach-E, an introduction that coincides with the first “branching out” of the Mustang since its creation 50 years ago, one must remember that the “real” Mustangs are still alive and well. Yes, there are officially all kinds of Mustangs now, from four-cylinder turbocharged to electric and,...

2020 Hyundai Venue First Drive Review: Substance is Key

The Venue is Hyundai’s second stab at offering what millennials want in an SUV. In fact, it is now the gateway to Hyundai’s SUV lineup. And it exists because the Kona, although very capable in many fields, didn’t quite do its job in reeling in young buyers. But the Venue was also born from the movement from compact vehicles to...

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 First Drive Review: Trucking The Crossover Look

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB First Drivevideo
Málaga, Spain. In a way, the all-new 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB is an admittance that Benz made a mistake. This mistake, mind you, paid off something ridiculous and has paved the way for this new mini-Gelandewagen, the 8th SUV in Mercedes-Benz. The “error” was replacing the Mercedes-Benz GLK, a muscular and angular compact SUV, with the softer egg-ish-like styling of the...

2021 Audi RS 6 Avant First Drive Review: The Be-All, End-All In The Automotive World

video
Malibu, CA. I review many new cars and SUVs every year and there is a constant throughout. This constant can ruin a Porsche Cayenne and make a Nissan Altima shine. The constant is expectations. After driving over 2,000 vehicles in my career, these expectations always serve as a guide. Like you, I had high hopes for the Audi RS...

video
The new Lincoln Aviator sets the tone for what’s to come from Ford’s luxury brand. Québec, QC. It’s been a while since I’ve looked forward to driving a new Lincoln product. While I did enjoy the Lincoln Continental at the launch event and as a press car, the last time I was genuinely excited about a Lincoln was the LS...

2020 Porsche Taycan First Drive Review: Taboos are falling

2020 Porsche Taycan
We took the all-new 2020 Porsche Taycan EV for a drive around Denmark's capital, Copenhagen. Here's our impressions. Copenhagen, Denmark – At first sight, Porsche did not consider the principle of electric motorization as a natural extension of its mechanical culture. Dedicated for more than half a century to the unique cause of the internal combustion engine, the Stuttgart firm...

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE First Drive Review: Useful Tech

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE
Mercedes-Benz loves to go big when it comes to technology and the all-new GLE is the perfect example. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is all new from the tires up. The interior is brand-new, the design is brand-new, and the technology is pretty far out. The thing bounces up and down automatically to get out of a snowbank or sand trap,...

2020 Porsche 911 Carrera Quick Review: The Greatest Driving 911 Of All Time?

The Porsche 911 is automotive history. The arrival of the...
