2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat [w/videos]

If You Ain’t First, You’re Last

Darrell Waltrip once said, “If the lion didn’t bite the tamer every once in a while, it wouldn’t be exciting.” The sentiment behind that aphorism is causing my adrenal gland to wake up as Dodge and SRT drivers and engineers – somber-faced to a man -…


2015 BMW i3 test drive reveals all you need to know

It’s been a few months since our first quick spin behind the wheel of the BMW i3. We can only imagine the challenges BMW is going to have explaining the i3 electric vehicle to the world (which starts at $44,950 here in Canada). It’s got a new powertain (all-electric, with optional range…


2014 Mercedes-Benz B250

The Mercedes-Benz B-Class is now on its second generation in Canada, although our American counterparts have yet to get any gen B-Class in US showrooms. While the European hit known as the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is not sold at all in North America, this 2014 Mercedes-Benz B250 is the actually the…


2015 Audi A3 E-Tron [w/video]

Over the years, we’ve had a chance to test a lot of Audi E-Tron vehicles, from very early all-electric prototypes (back then we only got to sit in the passenger seat) to the A6 L E-Tron PHEV and the A1 E-Tron plug-in hybrid. All of them were concepts and promises, merely whispers of what was…


2014 Volkswagen Amarok Canyon

There are those European automakers that compete in the North American market and those which don’t. Volkswagen, for its part, may stand firmly in the former category, but there are still entire model lines that remain out of reach for American buyers: diminutive hatchbacks like the Up! and the…


2014 Hyundai i40 Tourer

Recently, we took a vacation to Australia, because sometimes we have to get away from all of that other travel and good living that we withstand in order to bring you the latest car news. While there, we grabbed the keys to a Hyundai i40 Tourer, essentially the Sonata wagon we never got a chance…


2014 Mini Cooper S

Striking The Balance Its Predecessor Never Could

One of the big challenges as an automotive journalist is reviewing cars that you have a personal connection to. I have a strong passion for Minis. My first new car was a 2004 Cooper S, and I still own a 2006 model. It’s this affinity that’s left…


2015 Alfa Romeo 4C [w/video]

The Exquisite Beauty Of Imperfection

The dissonance between first look and first wheel turn was jarring. Alfa Romeo had chosen a suitably hip venue in which to showcase the coupe that will mark the brand’s honest-to-God return to the North America market – a graffiti-festooned warehouse…


2014 Mercedes-Benz E250 Bluetec

In Europe, there are a number of strange powertrain combinations for each vehicle. A BMW 3 Series, which has a grand total of four engines in the North American market (five if you count the ActiveHybrid), can be fitted with everything from the 3.0-litre, turbocharged six-cylinder to a…


2014 Volkswagen Jetta Comfortline

New Engine Makes Brand’s Best-Seller Better Than Ever

In spite of a recent hiccup in sales that’s led to the departure of Volkswagen of America CEO Jonathan Browning, the brand behind Das Auto says its metrics have improved everywhere else. According to the charts we were shown during a recent…
