2020 Kia Telluride Review: The Skeptic In Me Believes In Too Good To Be True

To this day, I’m still surprised by how quickly American automakers, once the custodians of the SUV, have seen their lead and expertise all but disappear in only the last decade. Brands that once would have never dared get in the ring with the likes of Ford and Chevrolet in this segment have not only entered the squared circle...

2020 Ford Escape Review: Three Is Nearly Misery

video
The Ford Escape, since its introduction in the very early 2000s, has undergone quite an evolution. What started out as a boxy, robust-looking large-compact SUV has become little more than a Ford Focus station wagon with a raised ride height. This design strategy, I think, will work quite well. There are two opposing design directions currently evolving in the SUV...

2019 Porsche Macan Review: Features Before Power?

video
The Porsche Macan, unlike many of its rivals, does not suffer the fate of being the “cheap” entry point into a luxury brand’s lineup. The Macan is as desirable in its segment as any other Porsche product can be in their respective categories. As proof, Porsche offers similar trims and technology levels as found in the larger Cayenne, and...

2020 Mitsubishi RVR Review: Waiting For The Next Round

video
Like many auto critics in North America, I’ve watched Mitsubishi go from a hero in the early 2000s to what I would describe as a deer in headlights midway through the 2010s. Seemingly confused, unsure of what to do, poor decisions were taken which have led the car company to where it is today: Somewhere between only just relevant...

2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio: So Bad, Yet Soooo Good

video
Last year, I reviewed the regular Alfa Romeo Stelvio and was honestly surprised by, well, how honest a vehicle it was. I compared it to a Porsche Macan and other luxury and sporty SUVs. Although I enjoyed it, the only reason why I’d get one over the others is to be different, much like how I feel about its...

2020 BMW X3 M Competition: Right on Time to Arrive Early

2020 BMW X3 M Pros Superb handling Great overall performance A bargain in the high-performance compact SUV segment 2020 BMW X3 M Cons Stiff ride, all the time Engine sounds not as spine-tingling as in its V8-powered competition Conservative exterior styling (if getting noticed is a major concern) As consumers are scooping up luxury small SUVs big time, the long-anticipated BMW...

2020 Lincoln Corsair First Drive: Comfort Tops New Corsair’s List of Attributes

2020 Hyundai Elantra Ultimate Review: The Value Is In The Basics

video
Some ten years ago, the Korean giant was teaching old dogs lessons with its Hyundai Elantra. The old dogs learned a lesson or two. Credit must be given where credit is due. By the late 90s, Hyundai had crossed the line between being a novel alternative to being a serious contender. By the mid-2000s, they’d kick some butts and taken...

2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid Review: Toyota Canada Hates Me

video
The all-new Toyota Corolla Hybrid is so damn good that you should avoid buying one… I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed (all would agree) but occasionally, even I can make out greatness. Now, greatness can be defined in a few ways. For a car like the one in question, the all-new 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid, it...

2019 Mazda3 GT Review: Times Are Tough For The Mazda3

The all-new 2019 Mazda3 is without a doubt the best they’ve ever made yet sales are tumbling. Is it possible to do no wrong and get it wrong? Can it be that a perfect storm of declining industry sales, tumbling segment sales and a car that is too good for its segment are all causing new Mazda3 deliveries to plummet?...
