The Taos is the most compact and cheapest SUV you can get today in Volkswagen’s lineup.    That being said, it doesn’t mean it is the least interesting Volkswagen SUV or a vehicle you should avoid except if you are on a budget. The 2022 Taos is full of qualities, and as a matter of fact, it is better than most of its rivals in several departments.     I wouldn’t consider the 2022 Volkswagen Taos as an ...
Mitsubishi offered us a brand-new Outlander for 2022. With more elegant, better technologies, a plethora of comfort elements, and a luxurious interior, the least we can say is that the Japanese manufacturer didn’t miss the mark here. The new Outlander is an eye-catching vehicle, and this is definitely one of the best compact SUVs currently available on the market.    There is only one engine option with the new platform for now, ...
Land Rover has always been at the top of its game, and the first thing you imagine when you hear the brand name is an imposing luxury SUV with a V8. Something like the Land Rover Range Rover or the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, perhaps.    The British manufacturer forged its reputation thru these big SUVs, but like many other companies, Land Rover had to evolve and offer different vehicles to grow its customer base. This is where the Land ...
  On one side, you have a 640-hp Italian monster SUV, and on the other side, you have an affordable and practical SUV that doesn’t cost a fortune and comes from the best German family. These vehicles are very different apart from the fact they are from the same company. In case you didn’t know, Volkswagen owns Lamborghini, Audi, and many other brands.    If I want to talk about the Urus and the Atlas Cross Sport, it is ...
Things are evolving at a considerable speed in the automobile industry. Even if nothing seems to have changed, there are new things most of the time. You can take the 2023 Jaguar E-Pace, and put it beside a 2022 model. And you will barely find any difference between the two.    For the 2023 lineup, the E-Pace is officially the cheapest Jaguar you can get, with a starting price of $52 400. This is a little more than the base price for the ...
If you haven’t done it yet, put a checkmark on September 14 on your calendar because that is the day Ford set for the brand-new Mustang generation debut.    Ford is going to unveil the S560 (7th generation) Mustang the next September 14 at the Detroit Autoshow as a 2024 model. From what we’ve seen, with a couple of spy shots circulating on the internet, this new generation might offer a similar proportion to the outgoing Mustang. ...
Some studies recently showed that the average price for a brand-new vehicle is around 45 000 $ which is a lot of money, especially for the average household. Luckily, there are some options, such as the Hyundai Venue. This is by far the most affordable SUV on the market, with a base price of 20 853 $ and we are talking about Canadians’ dollars here. How is that even possible, you might say?   Well, Hyundai has always been a believer in ...
The third generation of the Mitsubishi RVR was introduced on the market in 2010 and was first introduced in Canada as well as joining the Mitsubishi Familly as a compact and very practical SUV. Like many others, I have been charmed by the RVR since day one. Also, just in case you have no idea what vehicle we are talking about here, it’s because you are outside of Canada, where the RVR is also called the ASX of the Outlander Sport.    The ...
A couple of years ago, the letters E and V didn’t mean much. An electric vehicle was as rare as an exotic car, if not rarer. Nevertheless, with the rise in gas prices and the political speech about better vehicles for the environment, some manufacturers started to offer more hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Other manufacturers debuted their transition to an all-EV lineup which wasn’t a success. Kia is one of the only manufacturers who ...
I think it’s safe to say the Ford Maverick was one of the most successful new vehicles in 2022. The American manufacturer proved there was a place on the market for a small, affordable truck. The hybrid version of the Maverick has been pretty much sold out even before the truck arrived in the dealerships. And it tools only a couple of months for the entire 2022 production to be sold out.    At this point, the only thing for can do ...
If you want a fantastic, compact, practical performance vehicle, your options are minimal unless you can afford a luxury model. If it’s not the case, then anybody will tell you took a look at the Golf GTI or one of its competitors. However, there is another option, and it’s probably the most underestimated of them all.    The Volkswagen Jetta has always been considered one of the best compact sedans in the world with good reason. ...
The automobile scene has evolved a lot in the past decade to the point where we should almost call it the SUV or the truck scene. Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, and pretty much all the prestige and luxury brands came up with at least one SUV as if it was the new thing. Of course, there were some luxury SUVs on the market ten years and even 20 years ago. The Porsche Cayenne was introduced on the market in 2002 as an example. However, ...
Although this is a very subjective question, there are some severe studies about what makes a car beautiful or not. Design is more than a couple of pencil lines put all together. To make things more complicated, modern cars have to comply with very restrictive regulations, which can impact the final design. So, calling a car a work of art isn’t really a true statement since it’s so much more than that.    Now, let’s talk ...
Kia has become one of the world leaders in many fields of the automobile industry. The Korean manufacturer distinguishes itself from the others by starting from a white sheet with every new model. Kia has recently gone thru a major rebranding with a new, simpler, and more elegant logo. However, what makes Kia such a great car manufacturer, in my opinion, is the fact it is still giving time and effort where others literally gave up.    The ...
The average price for a brand-new vehicle is staggering. A couple of years ago, it was around $35 000, which was still expensive. However, since the most little car has been removed from the market, the average price for a brand-new vehicle is around $45 000 today. That is a lot of money, and it’s not even the only thing to consider.    If you need to finance or lease your vehicle like most of us do, you probably noticed interest ...
Hyundai recently unveiled two very interesting concepts in the form of a performance EV sedan and coupe. One is called the RN22e, which is basically a high-performance version of the upcoming IONIQ 6. The second concept is a Coupe based on two other concepts called the N Vision 74, and this one as a fuel cell powertrain. With all the love these concepts received when they were unveiled, Hyundai proved there is a place for performance EVs on the market.    Since ...
There are numerous rumors about a new vehicle everywhere, but one seems to be accurate or, at least, way more popular than the rest, according to many sources. As you should know by now, Ford has come up with an entirely new Ranger for the 2023 model. Along with this new look, we expect a lot of new features and elements. However, there is one thing we didn\'t think about, and it is a new, longer wheelbase for the Ranger.    At first, ...
Creating the perfect vehicle requires a lot of skills, knowledge, and access to a load of technologies, but the most important thing in my mind is that it takes a bit of craziness. You need to think outside the box, and you need to experiment with things that are different, and it’s exactly what the team behind the Jaguar F-Pace SVR Edition 1988 did. I know it may seem like another retro-inspired modern vehicle with just a plaque and a few exclusive ...
Volkswagen is one of the most prominent automotive groups in the world. The German manufacturer is usually very conservative when it comes to the making of a new vehicle. However, things have changed slightly since Volkswagen came up with its new (ID) EV line-up. It feels like the brand became more creative and took risks that it wouldn’t take otherwise. Volkswagen gave us several concepts before launching its first production model, which is ...
The Seltos has quickly become one of the favorite vehicles in Kia‘s fleet, and I could give you a thousand different reasons with ease. I mean, it is a stylish and modern vehicle, it is full of tech, and it has one of the best powertrains in its category, except for the fact there are no EV options. Even though the Seltos has been out for two years only, the Korean manufacturer already has plans for a massive update for the 2024 model, which ...
If you look only a few years back, options were very limited in terms of grand touring vehicles offering actual off-road performances. The Jeep Wrangler was your only choice, and it isn’t close to being perfect. However, things had changed a lot in the past five years, when a plethora of new models with incredible off-road capabilities came out. One of them is the Land Rover Defender, and according to many sources, it is by far the best vehicle ...
  Some 1970s and 1980s trends are coming back later, which is why Ford chose this period as a source of inspiration for its 2023 F-150 Heritage Edition. Technically, we celebrated the truck\'s arrival on the market 75 years ago. So yes, if you made the equation here, 75 years ago brings us to the 1950s. So why Ford didn\'t you choose a livery based on this time? The American manufacturer didn\'t explain why it chose the 1970s and 1980s as inspiration ...
2023 marked the arrival of the All-new Sportage in Kia\'s family. The Korean manufacturer started all over again from a white sheet of paper. So, the SUV doesn\'t feel like a new Sportage but more like an entirely new model. And knowing that, one of the customers\' biggest concerns was its price. Although the base price of the 2023 Sportage rose significantly, its complete line-up price range stays competitive, which is precisely being we were expecting ...
  If there is one thing I admire about Hyundai, it is the audacity and the innovation the Korean manufacturer put in every new vehicle. Hyundai succeeded in pretty every new segment it went in, and this led to the creation of two new brands, Genesis and Ioniq. There is literally no other car manufacturer that was able to accomplish the same thing in the modern car era. And not only that, but Hyundai is also one of the only car companies capable ...
  First and foremost, if you don\'t know what a PHEV is, let\'s clarify this. PHEV stands for Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle. Let me tell you why I think the Mitsubishi Outlander is among the best options in this category, even if the competition got more robust in the past few years.    The Mitsubishi Outlander was one of the first SUVs to introduce PHEV technologies into the segment, and it has been the best-selling PHEV SUV in ...
If you don’t know much about cryptocurrencies, you might not even know what an NFT is. An NFT is an acronym for a non-fungible token, which basically means that this is a valuable virtual object that lives thru a blockchain. You can do more research about it if you are interested in this kind of stuff, but my point here is that NTFS is a pretty big deal right now, and people go crazy for them. Believe it or not, NFT even made its way into the ...
  When Bugatti launched the Veyron back in 2005, the company\'s reputation was far from what it is today. It took the manufacturer almost ten years to sell the 450 units. Each unit costs around 3 million dollars to make, and very recently, you could have bought a used unit for less than 1 million. So, with such a catastrophic result, anyone with common sense would have swallowed the pill and left it there. However, somebody at Bugatti and Volkswagen ...
Unless you own a magical crystal ball, it is very difficult to predict the future. However, we have an excellent idea of what is to come for the BMW M lineup in the near future. In a recent interview, the CEO of the BMW Motorsport division said the « 2023 M2 could potentially be BMW\'s last gas-powered m-car .» What does this mean exactly? Well, I\'ll tell you what it doesn\'t mean first. The next BMW M car won\'t be fully electrified. ...
Car shopping is far from the time when a dealer could change the price with a marker on the lot, and everything was calculated by hand on paper. In fact, the concept of a car dealership has slightly changed over the year, and even if some brands decided to stick with this concept, others developed new ways for customers to shop and purchase their new vehicles. We can refer to brands such as Tesla, which makes most of its sales online.    Others ...
As the brand-new Acura Integra starts to hit dealer showrooms, people ask themselves if the new entry-level model could be Acura\'s last gas-powered car. In a recent interview with Automotive News, Emile Korkor, Acura\'s sales vice president in the US, mentioned that \"the brand is very excited about Integra\'s potential to attract a younger customer base as they are looking towards electrification.\"   It is not the first time Acura is telling ...
  After the Bronco, the Lightning, and the Maverick, Ford might get another name out of its history to staple to new upcoming models. The Thunderbird is an interesting story, and it’s a vehicle that has been beloved by the public and the purist over time. The model was continuously produced from 1954 to 1997 before being reincarnated into a retro-themed car in 2001. Although, this last generation was far less popular, which led Ford to ...
When Ford unveiled the third generation F-150 Raptor, there was a mention of an upcoming R version with a V8. Up until very recently, that is pretty much what we knew about the Raptor R, but some information started to leak on the internet about three weeks ago stating the Raptor R will get the same engine as the GT500, which is a supercharged 5.2-liter V8. The regular version of the F-150 Raptor is powered by a High-Output 3.5 liter Ecoboost V6 ...
The 2023 Genesis GV60 is certainly one of the most awaited upcoming electric vehicles, and for good reasons. The Luxury EV SUV is, in fact, based on the same platform as the Kia EV6 and the Hyundai Ioniq 5, two vehicles that were a major success at their launch. They are so popular that there’s a waiting list almost two years longer to get one now. The least we can say is we expect the Genesis GV60 to experience a similar situation. And we couldn’t ...
We live in a crazy world where it\'s now possible to pay six figures for a brand new Jeep or Ram truck, but on the other side, you can get a Mercedes-Benz for less than 40 000 $. How\'s that even possible? Well, the current market is so wide that it gave manufacturers opportunities to extend their line-up on both sides. In the Mercedes-Benz case, this appeared in the form of cars like the AMG GT Black Series or the Project One. But the German manufacturer ...
Before anything, let me talk to you about Fisker because I think the American manufactured needs a little bit of an introduction. The brand was first created by Henrik Fisker in 2007, and the first unit of the Karma started to be delivered in 2011. since then, and for many reasons, Fisker automotive went bankrupt. A couple of years later, a new company called Karma emerged from nowhere, basically starting back where Fisker originally left everything. ...
If you have been in the market for a brand new electric car very recently, you have probably noticed that the average waiting time is around a year and a half, which is kind of crazy. In the meanwhile, used car and gas prices haven\'t stopped climbing. At this point, you are probably thinking about getting a new model that is not out yet since you have to wait anyway. The Toyota Bz4X seems to be a great option since the brand is reputed for its reliability ...
The Department of motor vehicles from California recently announced it’s now possible to order a sticker instead of a metal license plate which cancels the need of drilling holes into the bumper of your car. This is also perfect for supercars or antique where the last thing you want to do is drilling holes to do damage. Apparently, this could help EV to get a better aerodynamics which makes them even more efficient. This could for any vehicle ...
  I have experienced the General Motors Super Cruise for the first time recently after driving the 2022 Cadillac Escalade and let me tell you, this technology is absolutely incredible. The most similar autonomous driving system doesn’t allow you to remove your hand from the steering wheels for more than a couple of seconds, whereas the SuperCruise is a total hand-free autonomous driving system. I won’t lie to you, I was a little ...
As if the regular Mercedes-Benz G Wagon wasn’t crazy enough, some people decided to make a dune buddy conversion with it. It doesn’t stop there since every panel on the body has been replaced, and the engine almost doubles up the power compared to a stock G Wagon. This dune monster is called the Brabus 900 Crawler.    Let’s start with the engine since it’s the least ridiculously modified thing about the Brabus 900 ...
I’ve been receiving a lot of questions about Jeep lately, and I think it’s time to clarify the situation about the American manufacturer. If we looked back 15 years ago, Jeep was in a bad position, it was the financial crisis, and the brand went for smaller and more economical models like the Patriot and the Compass. However, the vehicle that really saved Jeep, in my opinion, is the Wrangler, thanks to its strong customer base.    Today, ...
Aston Martin is undoubted one of the most recognizable luxury car brands in the world. Some of its cars have been made famous thanks to cinema success, such as James Bond, but the English manufacturer managed to stand out by itself way before that in various racing events. In fact, the legendary Carroll Shelby himself won the 24 Hours of Le Mans behind the wheel of an Aston Martin.   Things have been great for the British manufacturer in the ...
Sunday was the first-ever Miami Grand Prix, and despite the fact that there were limitations on the numbers of spectators, the event was a huge success, minus some minor flops. Anyways, what really matters here is the fact that a lot of people watched the Miami Grand Prix and the fact that drivers, especially young ones, loved it.    Many journalists called the Miami Grand Prix the \"future of Formula 1\". The least we can say is this ...
Since the very beginning of the current generation Corvette, General Motors has been meticulous about its way of unveiling information. However, after three years in the making, the C8 Corvette\'s future started to become clearer, and rumors about the ZR1 version finally leaked on the web. This more extreme version of the American supercar is expected to arrive somewhere in 2023, which make sense since the Z06 version is already out. Nevertheless, ...
Multifunction tailgate, internal generators, and interior that has everything needed to act as a camping site or an office, trucks are notorious for presenting some of the most advanced and clever quirks and features. I am always amazed to see American manufacturers come up with new gadgets and technologies, and that’s exactly where this article is leading us. You see, Ford recently filed a patent for an integrated ladder.    Or ...
For the average Joe, any Ferrari can be a special car. However, if you are a car enthusiast or a collector, you know there is a massive difference between a base Roma and a fully loaded SF90, perhaps. And we are not even talking about special edition cars. When it comes to Ferrari, I think the goal for any collector is to get as many limited series cars as possible, if not all of them. Of course, I am talking about the 288 GTO, the F40, the F50, the ...
Right now, the biggest vehicle you can find in the Italian car manufacturer lineup is the Stelvio which is technically a compact SUV. On the car side, the Giulia is your roomiest option, and again, we are talking about a compact vehicle here. Alfa Romeo has gone thru a rough time, and we can understand we, the Italian brand, have had a limited offer over the past 10 to 15 years.    However, Alfa Romeo is now part of Stellantis, and the ...
Toyota recently unveiled its new GR family member in the form of the most powerful Corolla ever made. This latest alteration of the world\'s best-selling car comes with lots of upgrades in true sports car fashion, and it\'s greeted with a radical bodywork change.    First thing first, let\'s talk about the Corolla GR motor, which is a masterpiece in engineering, in my opinion. The Japanese sports car is powered by a 1.6 L 3-cylinder Turbo ...
  Here’s some interesting news if you are into motorcycles and electric vehicles at the same time since Can-Am decided it was time to launch a new line of EV motorcycles. Reputed for its Spyder, Ryker, among many other products, Can-Am is ready to enter a new phase of its growth. We are not talking only one or 2 EV motorcycles but an entire line-up that shows how serious the Canadian manufacturer is.    Can-Am is part of BRP, ...
Today I am telling you about a phenomenon that gained a lot of popularity in the last few years, and it’s overbooking. No, we are not talking about restaurants, hotels, or any other typical business that is using this practice, but we are talking about the automobile industry here. The funniest or craziest part about this is the fact that even if car dealerships and car manufacturers are aware of the situation, there is pretty much nothing they ...
You might have seen a video of a red pickup truck being lifted and turned around by a tornado a couple of weeks ago. Luckily, there\'s a happy ending for this story since the teenager that was behind the steering wheel was able to get out of the tornado after this one put back his truck on all four wheels. The video went viral, and a Chevrolet dealership decided to give a brand-new truck plus $15,000 to the driver after learning it was a teenager.    Riley ...
