Gamers are excitedly playing The Legend of Zelda, the Edmonton Oilers have made the playoffs, and Honda just introduced a new Civic Hatchback. What year is this again?
A couple of weeks ago, we had the good fortune to spend a few days behind the wheel of the new Honda Civic Hatchback. Equipped with a 1.5L turbocharged engine, a practical roofline, and controversial styling, can the little hatch recapture some of that old 1990’s Honda magic? Let’s find out in the full review over on wheels.ca
Hybrids are most often associated with travelling short distances within a city or, at most, tools with which to save a few bucks on the commute to work.
We set out to see if the 2017 Toyota Prius, with its new Lithium-Ion batteries and alarming styling choices, would be able to satisfy on a 1600km journey to the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto. The drive was undertaken during the worst snowstorm of the year, natch.
Head over to wheels.ca and find out how the electrified hatchback fared on the snowy road trip.
In March, we had the opportunity to drive the all-new 2017 Land Rover Discovery in the icing-sugar soft desert sand on the border of Utah and Arizona.
Can the new Discovery, with its snazzy new styling and acres of luxury, still hang with its boxy, capable predecessors? Click on over to The Truth About Cars to read the full review.
Last week, the opportunity presented itself to compare two cars which vie for the dollars of hatchback shoppers: the Mazda 3 Sport and the Honda Civic Hatch. The house that Soichiro built recently re-entered the hatchback game with its 2017 Civic, while Mazda has been hawking a five-door 3 since its introduction a dozen years ago.
Which one lights the fire in the heart of your humble author? Buckle up, we’re about to find out.
Matthew the Car Guy recently travelled to Texas, driving trucks and eating red meat. Texas loves its pickups, so it was a natural that we would take the opportunity to test one of the boldest trucks in Ram’s fleet.
Years ago, I worked as a sales rep for Atlantic Canada’s largest telecom company, peddling cell phones and Centrex systems to business customers. As you’d expect of a company with thousands of employees, we had meetings. LOTS of meetings.
The joke on my mind was that if a smaller company found a snake, they’d kill it. At our company, we would have a meeting to learn about snakes, another meeting to find out the permits required for snake hunting, and a meeting to ponder and select the best weapon. Then, the whole thing would be derailed by cost considerations.
I love surprises. Buying a new type of beer and finding it to my liking. Having a tool work better than it should. These are all experiences which give me pure joy. Heck, I even bought my first house based on the fact the floorplan was not what I expected.
Imagine my delight, then, when I discovered the snappy responses of the Infiniti QX50. After all, SUVs and crossovers currently cover the landscape like rocks cover Newfoundland, so I must confess to expecting yet another ponderous box with the charm of wallpaper paste.
