You might not want to drive this car: the 2020 BMW 750Li

In most of my test drives, I look forward to getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. Sometimes, though, I dream of sliding into the back seat and letting somebody else do the driving for me. That was the case during my time with the 2020 BMW

Fond Farewell: the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle Wolfsburg Edition

In the automotive world (as in the business world) brands come and brands go. Models last from a forgettable year or two to decades of sales dominance. That’s why this review is bittersweet. I aim to compare vehicles every few model years to see what manufacturers change.

The Civic of Compact Sport Utility Vehicles: the 2019 Honda CR-V

Having it all, comfort in a sports sedan: the 2019 BMW 330i xDrive

They call it a sports sedan, and I guess it is. That said, I spent my first evening with the 2019 BMW 330i xDrive on a 250 km round trip in varying traffic conditions. By “varying“ I mean everything from stop-and-go traffic to clear sailing. That evening,

The ideal cruiser: the 2019 BMW M850i Cabriolet

I enjoy poking through the technology options in modern vehicles. Most people might think of this task as coursework, but each feature I find elicits the joy of finding an “Easter egg” (at least of the software variety). That said, no matter how much technology arrives in

A compact cat – the 2019 Jaguar E-Pace HSE

How many automakers consistently strive to elicit the image of their logos in the shape and performance of their products? The only name that comes readily to mind (at least to my mind) is Jaguar. To manage this feat in their larger vehicles is an achievement I

The BMW X7 Learning Experience

Few vehicles go all-out on technology the way BMW does, so it wasn’t a surprise to find gadgetry permeating the all-new 2019 BMW X7. I’m somewhat used to it. My neighbour isn’t, so when I gave her a quick tour of the vehicle, she mused it takes
