2019 Volkswagen Tiguan Review: The Least VW Of VWs

Volkswagen’s Tiguan is a runaway success for those who prioritize styling and spaciousness. The MK2 Volkswagen Tiguan is doing very well. So well in fact that it is VW’s best-selling nameplate. I need not elaborate on the SUV craze which explains why the Tigger is out-selling the Jetta, VW’s previous sales leader. Despite the love for the VW Tiguan, I...

Living With The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Part 1

2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a bright spot in an otherwise fading lineup. Here's what we've found out so far after spending a couple of weeks behind the wheel. The last few years haven't been kind to Mitsubishi. The brand was basically forgotten by consumers, dealers weren't happy, and it was difficult to pinpoint exactly where the once proud automaker...

2019 Nissan Altima Platinum Review: Giving It Their Best Shot

The all-new 2019 Nissan Altima is the summation of Nissan’s top efforts to muscle its way into more Canadian households. Unlike many other carmakers, Nissan, along with Volkswagen and Subaru, still firmly believes that now old-school midsize sedans will endure and continue to represent a huge portion of new vehicle sales for the foreseeable future. In fact, they and others...

2019 Volvo XC40 T5 Inscription Review: The Most Volvo Of Volvos

Despite what you might think, the most affordable Volvo, the XC40, is the most Volvo-like of the entire line-up. I too have had a difficult time understanding what my senses were telling me. I’ve lusted after old Volvo station wagons for decades, once owned a 2004 Volvo XC70 and have driven all of the latest Volvo products since Geely took...

2019 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT Review: Serious Car That Can’t Be Taken Seriously

GM is struggling to keep the Chevy Camaro relevant amid dwindling sales and interest, the turbocharged 4-cylinder won’t help. Most driving enthusiasts who have driven the Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger and Chevy Camaro at length will agree that the latter is the better unit to push hard. Mind you, I am referring to regular non-ZL1/GT350/SRT versions of these pony cars....

2019 Porsche Cayenne S Review: A Sporty Luxury SUV With A Porsche Logo

The new E3 Porsche Cayenne is the best ever of its kind however its competition has never been fiercer. I practically feel guilty saying that the new Porsche Cayenne no longer sits at the very top of the luxury midsize SUV segment. To be precise, it still resides on the top shelf however the Mercedes-Benz GLE, Audi Q8 and BMW...

2020 Cadillac XT6 First Drive Review: Space And Tech in an Elegant package

2020 Cadillac XT6 review
Cadillac and the Virginia countryside gave us the opportunity to take the all-new Cadillac XT6 for a drive. Here's our take on it. (Leesburg, Virginia) The 2020 Cadillac XT6 aims to bring back some of Cadillac's magic.  Growing up in the '80s, the bigger the car your dad had, the more success points he gained – after all, saying something...

2019 BMW X5 xDrive50i Review: Too Much? No

2019 BMW xDrive50i
We take the most powerful version of the new BMW X5 for a weekly test drive only to find out that we didn't want to give it back. The 2019 BMW X5 surprised the heck out of Matt in his review of the X5 xDrive40i, the "entry-level" new-generation X5 model. Both Matt and I agree the 40i is the more...

2020 Audi A4 First Drive Review: Is It Enough?

2020 Audi A4 First Drive
With new competition entering the market, the Audi A4 needed something new. The 2020 Audi A4 will be hitting dealerships early next year which means that by then, consumers will have had about 8 months to sample a brand-new generation of the BMW 3 Series, one of the A4's main rivals. In the highly competitive Canadian world of luxury compact...

2020 BMW Z4 M40i Review: A Roadster That Behaves Like A GT

The new BMW Z4 improves on every level with more tech, more power and an impressive driving experience. I needed three weeks to digest this car, not because there was something off with the Z4, but because I drove the new 2020 Toyota GR Supra less than 36 hours after returning the BMW. The new 2020 Z4 absolutely won me...
