Review: 2017 Lexus ES300h

By Kevin Harrison Back in February of this year, I decided to try the Lexus ES 350 for a few days while in Toronto for the Canadian International Auto Show. Part of the reason why I chose it as our chariot was because there wasn't much choice when it came to press...

Review: 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawk

By Kevin Harrison Perhaps one of the worst vehicles to ever come out of the Jeep brand was the Compass and the Patriot. The two platform sharing siblings were meant to be an affordable way to get yourself into the Jeep cult. The problem? They were both rubbish. The Compass and Patriot were...

By Kevin Harrison The Audi R8 wasn't around when I was a kid. Instead, my bedroom wall donned pictures and posters of other European stalwarts such as the Porsche 911 and the Lamborghini Diablo. Today, the R8 has gained a credible reputation to go along with its supercar styling. I can only...
