Can we be honest with each other here for a minute? Do you really need that silly “sport activity coupe” thing you’re driving? Are you putting that extra couple of inches of ground clearance to good use? Is the gravel laneway to your cottage riddled with that many potholes, roots, and rocks?
With the backseat folded flat, the cargo space of t
PORTO, Portugal – Driving mountain roads as often as we do, we’re used to seeing the occasional cyclist. But coming out of a tight corner and encountering a multi-coloured flock of goats spread out across the roadway – well, that’s a new one. We slowed to a crawl as a pair of enormous, black dogs bounded up, and began to expertly herd the goats ont
The OPP has revealed some startling numbers about the number of motorcycle fatalities in Ontario. And it comes with some warnings to drivers.
Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Kerry Schmidt tweeted the statistics earlier today. With the riding season not yet over, 47 riders were killed in motorcycle collisions this year. That's not just the hig
Jerez, Spain – Almost all cars can be categorized as good these days, and there’s more than a healthy handful of great ones around, too. I find that I tend to like many of them, some quite a lot.
These are the breath-of-life experiences that driving enthusiasts long for.
But the truly exceptional cars are the dream-makers, the ones th
The all-new Audi A5 and S5 coupes were first shown back in June. And while they had new engines, quattro all-wheel drive, and a new platform that helped trim nearly 100 kg versus the outgoing model, the new car was lacking something.
Well it seems like Audi's in agreement, so they've just unveiled the hatch. That is, the A5 and S5 Sportback mode
I am beginning to grow frustrated. The road is undulating, winding, and thrilling. The car I’m in is in all but name a luxury performance tourer, a Grand Tourer with authoritative power, prodigious handling, and two turbochargers anxiously spooling up boost, eager to turn spent exhaust gas back into horsepower.
The car ahead, is painfully slow
LOS ANGELES, California – Take off the badge, hide its grille, and you could be forgiven for briefly mistaking Kia’s new Stinger for an Audi A7. The long, lithe profile and flowing roofline culminating in a neat, upswept rear decklid form a silhouette that’s remarkably similar to Audi’s lovely four-door coupe – not a bad comparison by any means.
The ATS Coupe is Cadillac’s foray into the sexy little luxury coupe niche, and while the ATS-V is weaponized and armoured to take on M3s and AMGs , the example we tested is fit for casual civilian duty at your local mall.
Day or night, this is a captivating design.
To that effect, it is a gorgeous piece of metal, the chrome wheels, p
Historically, Infiniti’s performance-oriented cars came with a gun sight on their hoods, aimed squarely at BMW. Granted, in this case “history” does not go back too far, but one always got the sense Infiniti was pretty serious about its performance credentials. The G35 and G37 (in both sedan and coupe) fought the good fight with rear-drive-based ch

Munich – The Audi A3, a classy hatchback based on the Volkswagen Golf platform, came into the world in 1996. It went through a third-generation reboot for the 2012 model year, and in 2013, a sedan version was introduced at the New York Auto Show, primarily for the hatch-averse American market. For 2017, this premium compact gets a mid-cycle makeove
Here’s an oddity for you. Before even getting a chance to review (or drive) the 2015 Audi Q3 now on the market here in Canada, we are bringing you this advance preview of the 2016 Q3 , which receives a mild refresh and is coming to market next fall. That’s a long way off, but the changes relevant to our market are incredibly subtle, so this is
Frankly, winter just doesn’t seem long enough. I’ve had a few weeks behind the wheels of various Audi products this winter, and each of them have made me wish only for more snow, ice and for people to just get the heck off the roads. This one is the 2015 Audi S4, not Audi’s freshest product, but one that is familiar to use here at autoTRADER.ca, an
In a year that saw Audi’s sales in Canada grow by almost 20 percent to over 24,000, it’s easy to point at the shiny new baubles in their lineup, the redesigned A3 and all-new Q3 exploding onto the market and representing the lion’s share of that growth, but it would never happen without stability from core models. The Q5 and A4 are sales le

Generally speaking, the thought of spending a handsome sum of money on a new car and then being expected to pay for the paint additionally annoys the heck out of me. It takes the art of nickel-and-diming someone to a whole new level and the German car companies do it better than anyone. They’ll offer one, or m
