Road Test: 2019 Toyota RAV4 Trail AWD

The Toyota RAV4 is completely brand new for 2019 and is the first RAV4 to benefit from Toyota’s New Global Architecture platform. The new model features an all-new design both inside and out and a new powertrain that delivers more power and better fuel economy. Many of the same models return from the previous generation including the slightly off-road oriented Trail model which is featured here.

Road Test: 2019 Honda Passport Touring

This mid-sized cross-over fits nicely between Honda’s CR-V and Pilot offerings while sharing both their Pilot and Ridgeline’s same wheelbase. The Passport is 6 inches shorter than its larger 3 row Pilot sibling, and is really designed for those folks that don’t need to be hauling the entire kids team with them when they head up-country to test the vehicles light Off-Road capability. The exterior has a sturdy almost rugged looking appeal that presents well as the Off-Road AWD offering that Honda has brought to compete in the segment.

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.
