2020 Mazda 6 Signature Extended Review


2020 Mazda 3 Sedan AWD Review


2020 Mazda CX-5 Signature Review


2020 Genesis G90 V8 Review


For people who are not familiar with the brand Genesis, it was established in 2015 as a luxury vehicle division of the Hyundai Motor Group. To quickly fill a lineup, Genesis introduced its flagship, the G90, in 2017 based on the Hyundai Equus. While the G90 was a fine vehicle, its exterior was rather understated as a flagship.

With the newly introduced 2020 G70 being the brand’s first vehicle designed from ground up, the G90 has undergone a mid-cycle redesign as well. The new exterior is a significant upgrade from the original and makes the G90 stand out from the crowd. It also sets the tone for future exterior designs of the Genesis vehicles, including the upcoming luxury SUV, the GV80.

Thanks to Genesis Canada, I was loaned the G90 for one week to test drive. Below is my unbiased review.

2020 Genesis G70 3.3T Sport AWD Review


The premium car market has long been dominated by the German manufacturers. While the Japanese companies like Acura, Infinity, and Lexus have been slowly making some gains, the Koreans are advancing at a much faster pace.

Last year, we reviewed the excellent G80 by Genesis. For those of you who are not familiar with the brand, the name Genesis is no longer a car model in the Hyundai lineup. It is now a luxury vehicle division of the Hyundai Motor group. A simple look at the list of key people at the Genesis Motor  reveals its ambitious plan. Luc Donckerwolke, former design director of Bentley, Lamborghini and Audi, is head of design operations. Filippo Perini, former Lamborghini head of design, is chief designer. Albert Biermann, former head of the BMW M performance division, is executive vice president of performance development. The list goes on.

Genesis is set to compete with the best in the world, and the G70 was designed from the ground up to go head-to-head with the likes of Volvo S60, Audi A4, BMW 3 series, and Mercedes-Benz C-class. Thanks to Genesis Canada. I had the chance to test drive the 2020 Genesis G70 Sport for one week. Below is my unbiased review.

2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 4MATIC Coupe Review


The first generation CLA250 was introduced in 2013 as an entry level luxury vehicle to the Mercedes-Benz brand. It was a success at capturing younger buyers, selling over 100,000 units in its first year worldwide. With the entry level duty taken over by the new A Class, which we reviewed recently, the CLA has the chance to move upmarket. The second generation CLA250 is bigger, sportier, and most importantly, feels more premium from behind the wheels.

Thanks to Mercedes-Benz Canada, I was given the chance to test drive the 2020 CLA250 for one week. Below is my unbiased review.
