First road test 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Mitsubishi is on something of a high at the moment. Although it doesn’t seem that way, they’ve recorded record sales in 2017 with 23,000 new car deliveries. It’s no secret that showrooms are scarcely populated with new products, and people. Yet, consumers seem drawn to this brand that now relies solely on CUVs. I mean what I wrote… The two ...

Review: 2018 BMW 740Le xDrive

2018 BMW 740Le

My week with the 740Le started off bad. I’d only driven 1 kilometer and literally came face to face with frozen wipers. You know, when the central portion of the driver’s side wiper is no longer in full contact with the windscreen – it only touches enough to smear. As I drove home with my seat propped up in order ...

Even the subsequent S with the Camry’s 2.4-litre was almost, um, amusing. But the Camry? Nope. Well, maybe a 2002 SE ...

CAR REVIEW: 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Highline

I’ve not done the math but if we were to look back on 2017 and make a list of all the new vehicles, either all-new or refreshed, we’d probably discover that roughly 2/3 fall under a utility vehicle segment. Like most if not all car manufacturers, Volkswagen’s hard at work readjusting their existing line-up and filling in gaps. In the ...

First Test Drive: 2018 Nissan Leaf

2018 Nissan Leaf

Unveiled in Las Vegas last September, the new 2018 Nissan Leaf is about to arrive in Canada, six years after the arrival of the first generation in 2011. Although there hasn’t been a huge increase in sales numbers in the EV segment over that period, there has been some growth. The arrival of electric cars with greater range offered at ...
