First Drives2018 Ford EcoSport: the Fiesta Suits Up
SAINT-JOHN’S (Newfoundland and Labrador) – In 2018, when a consumer walks into a car dealership, the first acronym that comes out of his or her mouth is “SUV”! No matter the price. No matter the size. No matter the fuel consumption. The people request a sport utility vehicle. Understood? In …
First Drives2018 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring: it’s All About the Wing
My colleague Gabriel Gélinas recently had the opportunity to attend the launch of the wildest 911 GT3 of all, the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS , at the world-famous Nurburgring race track—arguably the dream of any sports car enthusiast. While the Porsche logo is becoming more and more commonplace on …
First Drives2019 Audi A6: Do-it-all Luxury Sedan
PORTO, Portugal – In a luxury brand’s lineup of vehicles, the midsize sedan might have one of the toughest jobs. It has to be sophisticated to justify a lofty price, but it can’t overshadow the full-size sedan as the technology benchmark. It has to perform better than the compact sedan …
First Drives2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class: Honouring Tradition
How did this giant toolbox on wheels ever transform into a fashion icon? Why is it that some aspects of the legendary SUV are considered lovely while the same on a modern Toyota Corolla would be unacceptable? And most importantly, how do you explain that people keep scrambling to dealers …
Spotlight on2019 Audi A6: We’re Driving it This Week!
While some automakers are retiring their passenger car lineup to concentrate on SUVs, others are renewing theirs. It’s the case for the Audi brand which, in the last year, introduced the 2019 A8 sedan , the 2019 A7 Sportback and, now, the A6 sedan . A new generation of the …
Test Drives2018 Dodge Challenger GT: Twelve Months a Year
Musclecars may obviously not be perceived as environmentally friendly vehicles, especially now that electrified powertrains are starting to gain traction on the market, by choice or by obligation. The Dodge Challenger, the Chevrolet Camaro and the Ford Mustang are most enjoyable with their honking V8 engines, but there are more …
BlogAn Automaker’s Impact on a Community
I’m not big on politics, but my general understanding of the Trump Administration’s view on foreign carmakers is completely whack. Its desire to impose tariffs and stiffer rules on imported cars, to protect domestic carmakers, seems like it will do little to no good, if not the exact opposite. The …
Test Drives2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack: Please Buy One
If you find my headline a little desperate, that’s because the car you see here, the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, is under serious threat. People aren’t buying cars anymore.

NewsTesla is Reportedly Working on a New Vehicle Called the Model Y

New ModelsAston Martin to Relaunch Lagonda Brand With Electric Luxury SUV
When Aston Martin announced plans in 2008 to revive the Lagonda brand “to develop cars which can have a different character than a sports car… offering exclusive, luxurious and truly versatile products with high quality and usability,” it probably didn’t have a very clear idea of what those products would …
New Models2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan: the High-Riding Luxury Car
Here’s the brand’s new utility vehicle, which will be one of the most expensive in the world. If not the most expensive. However, the English brand persists to not call it an SUV, but rather “the Rolls-Royce of SUVs.” Giles Taylor, director of design, says that “the label SUV is …
Hybrid/Plug-in HybridIs Honda cool again?
The brand that used to be loved by younger car enthusiasts has lost its cool in the last few years, but that could change again. Here’s why. Ironically, the car you’d expect to be the least cool in the lineup turns out to be the most promising one, if Honda …

After the launch of the all-new Aston Martin Vantage , the English brand has just presented a very exclusive version of the previous-generation model, the V12 Vantage V600.

Test Drives2018 Cadillac XTS V-Sport: the Classic Caddy
In a quest to lower the average age of its clientele, Cadillac replaced its big, cushy sedans by sleeker, sportier and more sophisticated models such as the ATS and the CTS. They’re even available in hot-rod trim to battle the German performance cars, but lining up an adversary for each …
Test Drives2018 Chevrolet Traverse: Bigger, Smaller, Better
When General Motors launched its quartet of midsize SUVs back in 2007 and 2008, namely the Chevrolet Traverse, the GMC Acadia , the Buick Enclave and the short-lived Saturn Outlook , it shook things up in the segment by maximising interior space in a—relatively—small package. They were big on the …
Test Drives2018 Cadillac XT5: "Pretty Good" Doesn't Cut it
Here’s the thing: the compact luxury SUV segment has quickly gone from relative obscurity to absolute necessity in just a few years.

Test Drives2018 Tesla Model X: Space-age Family Commuting
Although Tesla’s long-term survival isn’t yet guaranteed, the EV maker from California undeniably was a game-changer in the automotive industry. It proved to the world that electric powertrains can be an alternative to combustion engines, at a price, of course. Despite being on the market for a few years now, …
Test Drives2018 Nissan Armada: Canyonero
It’s easy to see the Nissan Armada as a big rolling joke. In a world where the entire industry speaks of electrification, downsizing and reducing our carbon footprint, the sheer idea of a near-6000-pound, V8-powered, body-on-frame SUV does indeed seem somewhat ridiculous. The most ironic thing here is that although …
Test Drives2017 Volvo V90: Do We Really Want an SUV?
If we think buying anything other than a sport utility vehicle is un-cool, we should think again. The Volvo V90 wagon looks so good, so sexy, that neighbours will admire us for being fashionably different. And admire our car, too. At least, that’s our opinion. But we’re automotive journalists, who …
Test Drives2018 Cadillac XT5: Soul Searcher
The 2018 Cadillac XT5 remains essentially unchanged for 2018 after having been introduced as a replacement for the dated SRX last year.
