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 more

My Wife Want’s a Hellcat

mardi 02 février 2016 à 12:28 by Danny Geraghty

Ever since Dodge started selling their ridiculously-overpowered screaming fast muscle cars called Hellcats, my wife Katheirne has been bugging me for one. I think it clicked when I told her that the Charger Hellcat was the most powerful sedan in the entire world. “I have to have one” she said. The... more

2016 BMW 340i Review

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

lundi 04 janvier 2016 à 18:18 by Danny Geraghty

The 2016 Ford Focus RS and Volkswagen Golf R represent two hot hatches which will be going head to head in the performance sport compact market. Members are discussing which vehicle (if any) they’d prefer to own and why. You’re looking at a monthly payment of $1131 per month for the RS and $946.19... more

2016 Infiniti QX50 Review

vendredi 11 décembre 2015 à 12:26 by Danny Geraghty

When I first heard about the new 2016 Infiniti QX50, I was excited to see what the brand had done in terms of styling. Nissan & Infiniti have been quite bold on the design front in recent years so my expectations were high for the model formerly known as the EX35/EX37 and introduced in 2008. My hopes... more

2016 Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet Review

mercredi 09 décembre 2015 à 11:00 by Danny Geraghty

I managed to get a booking on this Mercedes E400 Cabriolet on the last week it was available to press testing before being returned. At the end of November, there is often snow in the forecast but the week ahead looked perfect so I was game to give it a go. The current model E-Class debuted back in 2009... more

When the first generation XC-90 was introduced for the 2003 model year it quickly became one of the Sweedish brand’s most popular models in North America. In 2005 Volvo sold more XC90s than any of its other models with worldwide numbers at 85,994 units. The safety and practicality of the vehicle... more

2016 Mazda 3 Sport Review

lundi 16 novembre 2015 à 10:01 by Danny Geraghty

When I first saw the ad for a Mazda 3 with a lease rate of $72 bi-weekly ($969 down) while browsing MontrealRacing in September, my interest was certainly peaked. How could Mazda offer such an inexpensive rate on this vehicle? This wasn’t an ad for a sub-compact bare bones Mazda 2, it was for the compact... more
