2017 Volvo V60 Polestar: A Modern Day Buick Grand National?


dimanche 14 mai 2017 à 11:06 by Danny Geraghty

A phrase I often hear among gear heads is “why don’t they make cool cars like the Buick Grand National anymore”? For those who don’t know, the Buick Grand National was a race-inspired version of the Regal, made for five years in the 1980s. I suppose the “cool” aspect people are referring... more

2017 Toyota Highlander Review


mardi 25 avril 2017 à 11:24 by Danny Geraghty

The Toyota Highlander returns for 2017 – its fourth year of this generation – with many notable improvements to speak of. The Highlander was already a very good product and if you have been in the market for a mid-sized SUV or crossover to fit the entire family, it was likely at the top of... more

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

2017 Volvo S90 Review


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

2017 Chrysler Pacifica: the New Standard in Family Hauling


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


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 BMW 328 Touring Review


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


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


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


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


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


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


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
