ADVICE: Did you just get a flat tire? Don’t play with fire

There’s nothing more annoying than a flat tire, no doubt about it.

Then you lower your window, and you hear a fluttering sound that is certainly coming ...

Raising the sport and performance bar is something that Porsche’s done since the very beginning. The 911 was never going to be a supercar-beating sporty coupe!

Whomever said that a truck couldn’t be driven on a track and tackle some ...

The endless desire for crossover from the car buying public the world over is inspiring automotive brands to push utility vehicle design boundaries. The T-ROC is the German giant’s latest CUV and it positions itself just below the recently arrived Tiguan. Although there are great similarities between the compact T-ROC and the Audi Q2, the VW features some very distinct styling features. The front fascia is an evolved and sportier design over that of the ...

NEW CAR: the BMW X7 Concept is big and hybrid

It is big, massive, imposing … and so far it has not been very well received. Saying that its style is polarizing would be an understatement. Measuring more than 5 meters in length and equipped with 23-inch wheels, the BMW X7 Concept will be presented next week at the Frankfurt Motor Show. We do not really have much more details about the X7, besides the fact that it will position itself above the X5 in ...

QUICK CAR REVIEW: 2017 Ford Raptor

2017 Ford Raptor

Indeed, nothing can stop the Ford Raptor. Nothing, except doing pickup things. It’s true! I love pickups because I can throw random things in the bed such as tree branches, wood planks and all kinds of other stuff. Although the SuperCrew cab configuration allows for limo-like interior room, the 5”5’ bed is agonizing due to its lack of bulge. No, the Raptor is not the only one to suffer from small-box syndrome but most other ...

FIRST REVIEW: 2018 GMC Terrain

2018 GMC Terrain

GMC is the lesser known brand in the GM empire. This is certainly the case if you are not a typical truck buyer. GMC is, after all, described as “professional grade” and as such, mostly aimed at contractors and other small business owners. Although this branding is well deserved, especially for the Sierra and Yukon, it does seem to position the brand away from the typical automotive consumer. Back in 2009, the car business crisis ...
