Road Test: 2019 Mercedes-AMG C 43 4Matic Wagon

It’s not often that we here in Canada get a vehicle that isn’t also going to be sold in the United States, but luckily for us the Mercedes-AMG C 43 Wagon is the most recent example. The car shares most if not all of its main mechanical components with the C 43 Sedan, Coupe and Cabriolet but also adds in the distinct wagon appearance that seems to be going the way of the dodo bird.

Road Test: 2019 Cadillac XT4

Cadillac is one of the last luxury automotive manufacturers to venture into the compact-luxury-crossover segment and will look to make a big splash in hopes of luring potential buyers away from their more established competition. On the exterior appearance side of things, Cadillac have done quite well and produced a nice, contemporary looking crossover that bears Cadillac’s current design theme with bold lines and an all-around nice look. Having always been a fan of Cadillac’s interior designs, the XT4 has got that right as well with simple interior that looks to be made of upscale materials and a sense of functionality that can sometimes be lost with all of the technology and features available today.

Not much changes for the Civic in 2019 other than a restyled front bumper and the addition of an optional infotainment interface with a volume knob and actual buttons, something I am a big fan of.

Road Test: 2019 Jeep Cherokee Overland

Given how competitive of a segment it finds itself in, it was imperative that Jeep got the refresh of the Cherokee right and after just one quick look, it’s clear they have. As mentioned before, gone is the ‘interesting-looking’ front-end design of the previous model and in comes a much better, more purposeful design that is sure to attract some customers.

Commanding Presence: 2019 GMC Sierra 1500

General Motors has officially released the GMC Sierra 1500, bigger and badder in almost every aspect, while managing to weigh less than the outgoing vehicle to boot. The list of all-new features is long, among them an industry-first “CarbonPro” carbon fibre pickup box. We got to spend a little time behind the wheel of one recently and here’s what we found.

Modern Day Muscle: Camaro ZL1

“What’s old is new again.” Nowhere is that saying more appropriate in an automotive context than in the modern-day muscle car wars, where many of the models and even colours of the iconic cars of exactly 50 years ago are being used to market today’s high-tech supercars.
