ridgeline08b vendredi 14 avril 2017 à 12:07 by Danny Geraghty

Honda’s bid in the pickup truck game just went up a few notches with the totally redesigned and improved 2017 Ridgeline.  Now in its second generation, the Ridgeline has steadily improved to the point where it should be a must-try for anyone in the market for a pickup – full size or otherwise. That... more

s90_11b vendredi 24 mars 2017 à 14:25 by Danny Geraghty

Volvo’s resurgence continues full speed ahead as the Swedish company continues to release new models that both please the eye and push the limits of innovation. The new S90 debuted at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, replacing the outgoing S80 in Volvo’s lineup. It’s a good thing because the S80 had... more

pacifica02b vendredi 20 janvier 2017 à 12:43 by Danny Geraghty

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the sixth generation of the company’s original minivan that pioneered the entire segment when it was released back in 1983. Announced during the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles surprised many by also announcing that the Pacifica would replace both the... more

2016 Golf R Review


0416-golf-r dimanche 01 mai 2016 à 21:52 by Danny Geraghty

As the original owner of a 1999 Acura Integra Type R, I was highly intrigued when I heard the news that Volkswagen would release a Golf R. I must admit, however, that although the similarities between both of these “Rs” are numerous, my initial impression was likely similar what people were saying... more

2016 Lexus NX 200t F-SPORT Review


0416NX200t_12 samedi 30 avril 2016 à 18:07 by Danny Geraghty

The NX 200t is the new kid on the block in the compact crossover segment, having been introduced just a couple of years ago. Toyota decided they wanted to have a Lexus-branded version of the RAV4 and this is the result. As with all other Lexus models, the wacky exterior is certain to attract many buyers... more

2016 BMW 328 Touring Review


04163seriestouring12jpg jeudi 28 avril 2016 à 21:49 by Danny Geraghty

When most people with families ponder their next vehicle they undoubtedly consider the practicality and convenience of the station wagon. Manufacturers, of course, have shied away from using the term “station wagon” in recent years because I suppose it’s not considered cool anymore. New adjectives... more

2016 BMW 650i Gran Coupe Review


0316650grancoupe02 dimanche 13 mars 2016 à 15:57 by Danny Geraghty

Up until 2012 the BMW 6 Series had always been offered as a two-door coupe. It was only with the release of this current generation that BMW decided it needed a four-door coupe to go head to head with the likes of the Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS. These types of vehicles that defy the conventional definition... more

2016 Ford F-150 Review: Hauling The Family In Style


0316f150lariat02 dimanche 13 mars 2016 à 15:10 by Danny Geraghty

When I decided to have a third kid it was clear to me that a simple SUV or sedan wasn’t going to cut the mustard in terms of space and utility. You simply cannot fit three baby seats in a standard five-person layout so my choice was abundantly clear. We decided to go with the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan... more

The 2016 Mazda 6 – Well Done Mazda


0216mazda6 mardi 16 février 2016 à 11:18 by Danny Geraghty

It’s not often a mid-sized sedan with a $30,000 price point can deliver a significant “wow” feeling upon first sitting inside but the 2016 Mazda6 comes as close as it possibly could. I’d be lying if I didn’t say there at least a little bit of “paf” which a local term that MontrealRacing.com... more

2015 Mazda CX-9 Review


0116-cx9_01 mardi 26 janvier 2016 à 12:52 by Danny Geraghty

I probably have the honor of being the last person in the world to write a review about the 2015 Mazda CX-9. I can say this because this article comes on the heels of the unveiling of the brand new 2016 CX-9. I booked this vehicle well in advance thinking I might be the first in the city to try the new... more

2016 Acura TLX Review


0116-tlx lundi 25 janvier 2016 à 08:17 by Danny Geraghty

When Acura ditched the TSX and the TL and decided to mash them up into the new TLX back in 2014, I was cautiously optimistic. The outgoing models seemed slightly out of place compared to lineups put forth by competitors and the new TLX would now be positioned perfectly against the standard bearers in... more

2016 Mazda CX3 Review


mazdacx3_01a mercredi 13 janvier 2016 à 11:19 by Danny Geraghty

Part of my daily grind involves reading and moderating the MontrealRacing discussion forum and I often hear the young enthusiasts voicing their displeasure at the crossover fad that has overwhelmed the auto industry. Many see crossovers as nothing more than jazzed up cars made to appeal to people who... more

2016 BMW 340i Review


0116-340i mercredi 06 janvier 2016 à 17:33 by Danny Geraghty

For 2016 the 3 Series receives its mid-cycle update (also known as the Life Cycle Impulse or LCI). These updates usually involve tweaks to the look and performance of the vehicle to keep it fresh and competitive for the next four years. To the casual observer the exterior changes might go unnoticed but... more
