    [REVIEW] Mercedes-Benz GLB250

    Nine. That’s right, nine. That’s the number of SUVs/crossovers that Mercedes-Benz has its current sprawling vehicle line-up with the introduction of the GLB. It’s a bit mind boggling that for decades, the inimitable Gelandewagen was the only SUV that Benz had in their line-up. I suppose as the old adage says, build it and they […]

    [REVIEW] 2020 Cadillac XT6 crossover

    If you’re shopping for a three-row SUV, there are a plethora of choices on the market. Much like cereal, there is something for almost everyone. Whether it’s a smaller SUV that has an “occasional only” third row, or something at the opposite end of the spectrum like a body-on-frame SUV with three rows of seats […]

    [REVIEW] 2020 Cadillac XT5 Sport

    When one thinks of Cadillac and SUVs, the company’s first major entry into the SUV market, the Escalade, probably comes to mind. Introduced for the 1999 model year in response to competition from the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, Lexus LX, and Lincoln Navigator, the Escalade has been a resounding success for the Cadillac brand. Over two decades […]

    Costco runs, after school sports, family road trips. These are just some of the common activities that are shared amongst many who are toying with the idea of owning a 3 row crossovers. SUVs with 3rd row seats have continued to be one of the most popular types of vehicles on the road. Honda/Acura was […]

    [REVIEW] 2020 BMW X1 M Sport

    Over the course of its six year lifecycle, the previous generation BMW X1 clocked up an astounding 730,000 worldwide sales. Built in factories across the globe, Germany, China, Russia, and India, the X1 sold surprisingly well despite the fact that it was rather plainly finished in-and-out, and the handling was nowhere close to that of […]

    [REVIEW] 2019 BMW X2 M35i

    BMW has long called itself the Ultimate Driving Machine. However these days, the world’s second best-selling premium brand has arguably gone from a sports sedan purveyor to more of a luxury high-end wagon manufacturer. Times they are a changing, just as consumers’ tastes have as well. It’s a tough market out there and BMW has […]

    [REVIEW] 2019 Honda Clarity Touring Plug-in Hybrid

    You’ve probably heard the old adage before: “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, or “It’s what’s on the inside that counts”. Perhaps there is no other vehicle in the Honda line-up that resembles these statements other than the Honda Clarity. Looking like a vehicular muckbang between the cars in RoboCop, a Citreon SM, the […]

    2018 Nissan Qashqai SL Platinum review

    Is the Qashqai the ultimate urban compact crossover? Despite the fact that Canada and the USA share a border, many things are just different North of 49th parallel. No disrespect to our Southern neighbours of course. One of these things happen to be our preferences in vehicles. Whereas the top selling car in the USA […]

    [REVIEW] 2016 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited

    In 1995, Subaru carved a whole new category for itself by essentially raising the ride height and ground clearance of their all-wheel-drive Legacy station wagon. To complete the package, they gave it some SUV styling cues such as large fog lamps and extra tough looking body cladding. And so the first sport-utility wagon was born. […]

    [REVIEW] 2015 Honda Pilot Special Edition

    The early 2000’s will not only remembered as the year’s post of the burst of the dot-com bubble. To bring this into context, “Friends” was still airing on TV, and “Finding Nemo” was the hit animated movie on the streets. The word “crossover” was still a relatively new buzzword, and if you needed to ferry […]

    [REVIEW] 2013 Mazda CX-9 – Zoom Zoom with Room to spare

    The time is 10:51pm and I’m anxiously waiting for flight UA021 to arrive from Chicago. Onboard the flight are one of my best friends Todd, and his girlfriend Jessica. Both of them have been in Brazil for a friend’s wedding and are making their way back after 3 weeks on holiday. With the Mazda CX-9 […]
