2017 Toyota Yaris 5-Door

A lot slower than I remember from when I owned one, the new 2017 Yaris just feels like it is overpriced and under performing now that other cars in the class have evolved.  A four-speed automatic transmission, a 1.5-litre engine with barely over 100hp, it really just doesn’t do anything for me. As a city […]

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Review

Personally I have no need for a minivan but many families do, and the idea of an Electric car may also be crossing the minds of those with young children.  So here we have Chrysler’s idea of what a plug-in electric hybrid can offer.  With an electric range of 56km as well as a 3.6-litre […]

2017 Volkswagen Touareg

The 2017 Volkswagen Touareg, I can’t (or won’t pronounce it correctly) but I will drive it and give you my opinion. At $65,000 I expect a luxurious vehicle that performs well and this VW doesn’t disappoint.  It’s biggest party trick is probably the 7,700lb towing capacity, closely followed by it’s incredible driving range as it […]

2017 Chevrolet Malibu LT

Updated with a more modern and sporty look the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu looks like a great competitor in the mid-sized sedan space. After a week of driving an LT model I came away impressed by the drive, despite the lack of power from a small 1.5-litre engine. A ton of nice features and a quality […]
