Mathieu St-Pierre

Matt picked up his first press car in December of 1998—a beautiful brand new 1999 Mazda Protegé LX. He was promptly rear-ended by a beige Corolla (true story). He immediately accepted the challenge of informing car buyers the world over that there are alternatives to the Corolla. At over 40 million sold so far, it’s clear that he has failed in his endeavour.

Be that as it may, Matt has worked for the Automobile Protection Association (APA) and contributed to Protegez-Vous’ annual car guide, joined Auto123.com in 2004, moved on to Autonet.ca for a brief period of time only to be recalled to Auto123.com.

Today, he contributes to LC Media, EcoloAuto.com, MotorIllustrated.com and other outlets. He’s a standing member of both the Automobile Journalist Association of Canada and International Motor Press Association (IMPA) and manages a fleet of six cars with a total value inferior to that of the damaged Corolla.

BARCELONA, Spain – They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. It wasn’t long after the Vision CLS concept broke cover some 15 years ago that another carmaker introduced its own vision of a four-door luxury coupé. Although the niche segment now features a little more than a …
