2020 Subaru Crosstrek Limited PHEV: Limited In Availability And Ability

This is a review that folks at Mitsubishi Canada will be partially happy to read. Over the last three years, I’ve done nothing but give the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV a hard time, stating that it’s a pointless exercise and that I don’t buy into the Plug-In-Hybrid cool-aid. Now, although I’ve found some PHEVs to be to my liking, including the...

2020 Toyota Tacoma Review: The New One’s Still Years Away And We’re Fine With That

The Toyota Tacoma is a dominant force in this segment. No matter what the competition throws at it, the Taco comes out on top. This is not to say that Toyota’s compact pickup has it easy! When Ford first hinted at the return of the Ranger, many thought that the Tacoma’s days as top-dog were numbered, but not even...

2020 BMW X7 M50i Review: Communicating Its Position In The SUV Pyramid

video
The term “flagship” is commonly associated with top-line or top-trim vehicles in a given manufacturer’s portfolio. The flagship metaphor has crossed over into many types of businesses and products but nowhere does it fit as well than in the automotive industry. When I think of flagship sedans, the first that comes to mind is the Mercedes-Benz S Class. Without a...

2020 Toyota 4Runner Venture Review: Lovable oaf

video
And by lovable oaf, I mean that the 2020 Toyota 4Runner is like one of your best friends. But better than that. Within any circle of friends, there’s always one that’s a little slower than the others, not quite as athletic but he or she is, by far, the most loyal, dependable and trust-worthy in the gang. That’s the...

2020 Jeep Compass Trailhawk Review: Priced And Sized Out Of The Competition

video
The Jeep Compass is the brand’s entry-level model but this does not mean that it’s and incapable of being a Jeep. In one month’s time, I’ll have managed to finally drive two SUVs that had so far eluded me. The first was the Infiniti QX50 and the other is this one, the 2020 Jeep Compass. In a bid of good...

2021 Kia Seltos First Drive Review: Kia Knocks It out of the Park Once Again

2021 Kia Seltos Review
Car companies all want to go after millennials, especially companies that are not doing so well. You can’t blame them; someone has to keep buying their cars when the old customers retire from the road. However, convincing the young ones is proving to be a laborious task. Kia is three sheets to the wind in Canada and is taking on...

2020 Infiniti QX50 Review: Overreaching And Under Achieving

video
I’ve tried to book the new Infiniti QX50 at least three times since it landed on the local press fleet nearly a year and a half ago. For whatever reason, I never managed to take it home for a week, until now. And I got quite the unit as my tester was none other than an absolutely loaded QX50...

2020 Chevrolet Camaro LT1 Review: A Gift For All, But Mostly Americans

video
  Honestly, when I booked the Camaro LT1 prior to leaving on my extended stay in Florida, I knew about the trim but had never priced it. When I received my Satin Steel metallic example and the accompanying American spec sheet, I was floored. In the US, a brand new 2020 Chevrolet Camaro LT1 6-speed manual starts at $34,000. When...
