2022 Honda Civic Si Review: Perfect, and Still Not for Everyone

video
Pricing in Canada starts at $33,750, $27,530 in the US. The Civic Si remains a car for a specific crowd, and they’ll love it. The new Si previews how good the future Civic Type R will be. I’ve put off reviewing this car for as long as I could. The new Honda Civic Si lives in a segment that...

2023 Cadillac Lyriq First Drive Review: Making a Statement

2023 Cadillac Lyriq
The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq starts at $62,900 in the United States and at $69,898 in Canada, freight and delivery charges included. Smooth ride, stunning cabin, priced to sell. No rear wiper, annoying electric door latches, 2023 model already all spoken for. Cadillac’s transition to electric vehicles has officially begun, and although the announcement that it would stop selling combustion-engined...

2022 Lexus NX 350h Review: Premium Middle Ground of Everything You Want in a Small Luxury SUV

video
Pricing starts at $47,400 in Canada and $39,025 in the US. The new NX, like the recently introduced RX, truly has a version for everyone. I’m still blown away by how smart this small premium SUV is. You may have heard or read this in one of my past reviews but there are many small premium SUVs in my...

2022 Toyota Tundra 4×4 CrewMax Limited Long Bed Review: The Tundra’s Soul Lives On

video
Base pricing for the Tundra starts at $44,990 in Canada and $35,950 in the US. The V8 is gone, but we don’t miss it, well only a little... Spruced up, tech-loaded, but still just rough enough around the edges. Toyota trucks are something of a conundrum. For reasons known only to those who drive or own them, they defy...

2022 Toyota Tacoma vs. All Non-Full-Size Trucks Comparison

The small-midsize truck segment has nearly doubled in numbers over the last few years. The Toyota Tacoma is the “oldest” model in the segment. The Ford Maverick and Hyundai Santa Cruz are the latest players. Not that long ago, truck buyers had several options from the ex-Big 3 as well as at least two other import automakers. Between the...

2022 Ford Maverick Review: A True Independent

video
Base price in Canada for the 2022 Maverick is $26,900, $19,995 in the US. The Maverick is a serious disruptor in the non-full-size pickup segments. If Ford can build them fast enough, there’s no telling how many they could actually sell. For a brief moment late last year, the wife and I considered adding a new 2022 Ford Maverick...

2022 Porsche 718 Cayman T Review: True Driver

video
The 2022 Porsche 718 is priced from $70,700 in Canada, $63,400 in the US. The 718 Cayman T is about driving minus distractions. There is nothing “lesser” about the Cayman T. There are many fundamental shifts currently ongoing in the auto business. All, or nearly, are welcomed and to an extent, necessary. Electric vehicles are brilliant and yes, this...

2022 Honda Ridgeline Touring Review: Perfectly Ignored Perfect Compromise

Base price in Canada for the 2022 Ridgeline is $46,440 in Canada and $38,140 in the US. The 2022 Ridgeline is the grandfather in an increasingly hot segment. I know I’ve written something along these lines about Honda in the past, but the Ridgeline is another example of the Japanese automaker’s ability to think outside and beyond the box. If...

2023 Nissan Z First Drive: The last of its kind

  Las Vegas, NV -- Launched in 2008 (for the 2009 model year), the previous Nissan 370Z - which ceased to exist a year ago - was overdue for a complete overhaul. Fortunately, the automaker has been working on the renaissance of the Z moniker since 2017, as Taruma-San, chief product specialist for the Nissan Z, confirmed at this first...

2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge Review: Still Attractive and Fun, but it’s Slipping

Starting price is $62,365 in Canada, $51,700 in the US. This small premium electric SUV segment is heating up. The XC40 Recharge is as entertaining and feisty as ever. Much has changed since the Volvo XC40 Recharge and I first came into contact. Specifically, many new electric SUVs have arrived or been announced, increasing the Volvo’s competitive set. Even...
