The all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class is likely the most important new car Daimler AG has launched in more than 35 years here in Canada. While this nameplate has existed in Europe since the 90's, we here in North America never had the chance to experience this entry-level Mercedes-Benz until now. Our 2020 Mercedes-Benz A 220 4matic Sedan comes well equipped around $44,000....

Ford is investing in large, RWD SUV platforms, which is great for enthusiasts like us. Our Snapshot is on this 2020 Ford Explorer Platinum AWD. 

We want to extend a big thanks to Yergeau Ford in Acton Vale, Québec for letting us borrow their new 2020 Ford Explorer Platinum to film this episode. Find out more about their dealership.

It's rare that automakers spend the time and money investing in something like a RWD SUV platform, since consumers these days are less interested in the technical design of their vehicles and worry only about price, features, and looks. Ford's new CD6 platform underpi...

From 2003 to 2019, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé has changed quite a lot. Our mini retrospective is on the 2019 Mercedes-AMG E 53 and how it compares to the 2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG.

How has the Mercedes-Benz E-Class changed over the decades? We look at the 2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG (C209) we featured last year and compare it to the new design found on the 2019 Mercedes-AMG E 53 (C238). Unlike the CLK-Class, this new generation E-Class coupé and convertible share the same platform as the sedan and wagon, whereas the CLK was built on the C-Class platform.

Our mini retrospective goes ov...

Why would anyone compare a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT with an Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio? I guess we're just insane, just like these two SUVs.

Today on TestDrive Showdown we're looking at two performance-oriented SUVs from FCA, the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT versus the 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio. One is a mid-size SUV, the other a compact luxury crossover, but together these cousin vehicles offer a lot to buyers who want space for a family and has enough power to get everyone there in...

Last year we drove the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio and absolutely hated it. How has it changed for us this year? Quite a lot. 

We're looking at the current fastest compact luxury crossover on earth, the 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio. A $115,000 SUV with a 2.9L Ferrari bi-turbo V6 engine, an 8 speed sport automatic transmission, and a rear-wheel bias AWD system. The Stelvio was a boring car, but tune it with Quadrifoglio and we're in business.

Over the past 4 years we've been lucky enough to drive 4 different generations of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. While it wasn't officially known as the E-Class until 1994 with the W124, like the E 500 we featured last week, Mercedes-Benz's mid-size executive car has been a strong competitor for luxury since the 1950s. We had a chance to drive the latest W213 E-Class with the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E 450 4matic sedan, while seeing how it's changed from the 1994 Mercedes-Benz E 500

It's funny that the first official press car we've gotten from Mercedes-Benz since starting our regular new car coverage...

This week we're looking at our first Dash Cam, the Acumen XR10 dual-camera dash cam with a built-in video display.

Dashcams have quickly become an important norm in the auto industry, with some manufacturers like Tesla implementing software directly into their cars to utilize the cameras for the 360º system to function as dashcams. For those of us who don't drive a Tesla we need a third party solution like the Acumen XR10. It's dual-camera setup is unique, with a full size rearview mirror that fits over your existing mirror, providing a large screen for forward and rear camera views as well as...
