2022 Genesis GV70 AWD Review: The Genesis Gamechanger

video
Base pricing for the Genesis GV70 starts at $49,000 in Canada, $41,500 in the US. The GV70 will quickly take over as Genesis’ volume leader for all the right reasons. On the surface, the GV70 is the most persuasive small premium SUV on the market. I can think of no other instance, in modern automotive history, where a new...

2022 Nissan Frontier First Drive: Focus Adjustment on Refinement

video
Base pricing for the new Frontier starts at $39,998 in Canada, $27,840 in the US. The Frontier gains 21st-century technology and a handsome new look. Above all, the new Frontier is far more refined than ever.  Small trucks have roots that run very deep in North America. Unfortunately, we above the Snowbelt rarely ever get to see these “roots” as...

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 4Matic Review: If You Can Find One, Get It

video
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS is priced from $101,900 in Canada, $76,000 in the US. The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 is priced from $160,900 in Canada, $132,100 in the US. The GLS 63 is a rare entry in the ultra-elite segment of hyper-powerful full-size premium SUVs. A strange thing happened a day or so after I returned the 2021 Mercedes-AMG...

2021 Land Rover Defender 90 P400 X-Dynamic S Review: A Serious Toy

video
Pricing for the Defender 90 starts at $59,700 in Canada, $46,100 in the US. The 110 model is the slightly more grown-up version. The Defender is an undeniable icon and the new one lives up to expectations. I still get a kick out of the tested 2021 Land Rover Defender 90 when I think back to the week I...

2021 Hyundai Elantra N Line Review: Do Not Underestimate it

video
The base price in Canada for the 2021 Hyundai Elantra is $17,899, $19,850 in the US. The Elantra N Line is $27,799 in Canada. The full-fat Elantra is a serious 276-horsepower hot compact car. I should have known better. I’ve driven the Veloster N and the Sonata N Line, both of which turned out to be truly engrossing. For...

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Review: The People Have Spoken

video
Pricing starts at $31,998 in Canada, $25,745 in the US. The current 2022 Outlander PHEV is a carryover but a new one is coming. The new 2022 Outlander is about delivering an impression. This isn’t entirely relevant but hear me out: I’ve always been a station wagon person. Personally, even though I understand their worth, I’ll get a minivan...

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 4MATIC Review: An Easy Choice

video
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE is priced from $69,900 in Canada, $54,750 in the US. The GLE is the older-money choice among premium midsize luxury SUVs. The Mercedes-Benz GLE seriously outsells the BMW X5 in Canada. It really seems to me like the Mercedes-Benz GLE (aka M and ML) has been around forever. The fact is that it’s been a...

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Review: Praised Because There are few Alternatives?

video
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E pricing starts at $50,495 in Canada, $42,895 in the US. The Mustang Mach-E delivers what it must but little more for the price. Yes, the price is a real issue. I’m going to voice what should be a rare and unpopular opinion on the Ford Mustang Mach-E. Before I elaborate, however, I must admit that...
