2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV Premier Road Test

As far as subcompact hatchbacks go, Chevy’s Bolt is la crème de la crème. Some time ago I might have said something similar about Ford’s Fiesta ST when referring to straight-line performance and handling, or Honda’s Fit as far as cargo carrying capability, but those two, like so many others in this class, are gone, leaving a shrinking subcompact…

2021 BMW X3 xDrive30i Road Test

There’s nothing better than driving a model’s base trim if you want to find out how good its basic elements are, so let me be clear, BMW’s X3 xDrive30i is one very good compact luxury SUV.

The ILX’ MSRP ranges from a base of $30,805, plus freight and fees, to $36,205 for the top-line A-Spec Tech shown here, which is a…

2021 Genesis G70 3.3t Prestige and Sport Road Test

Choices, choices, choices. Should you choose the refreshed 2022 G70 that’s now starting to arrive at Genesis retailers across Canada, a car that boasts the premium brand’s stylish new diamond-shaped grille, dual-slit LED headlights and tail lamps, and the list goes on? Or should you snag a 2021 G70 while you can still finance a new one? Styling…
