First Drive: 2018 Audi Q7

2018 Audi Q7 - Audi Oakville

When working for an auto group as diverse as Weins Canada, there are a lot of opportunities to drive some nice cars. We have great luxury brands like Lexus, Audi, and Mercedes, and it seems like every model is designed to make you drool. Before this week, I actually hadn't driven any of our luxury brands, or really any luxury vehicle. When I was given the chance to drive the 2018 Audi Q7, I was both excited and nervous.

First Drive: 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback - Don Valley North Toyota

My first experiences driving as a teenager started in a Toyota Corolla my parents bought from my grandparents. It was a green, 1998 Corolla and it was as basic as you could get. Crank windows, manual door locks and an old tape deck (remember those?). It wasn't anything flashy, but it got me from A to B. From the beginning, I had always known Toyota was a reliable brand as that car lasted another 10 years before I bought my own car.

Donald Trump

Whether or not you follow the news, there's been one thing that has been impossible to miss in the world. President Donald Trump and his international diplomacy. One of the latest things to come up in Trump's policies is his stance on car imports into America.

Car Body Styles

cars

When shopping for cars nowadays, it seems like you have a kajillion options. There are different trims, add-ons, colours and body styles available so there is so much customization available that everyone in your family could have a different vehicle. But the biggest thing that most people talk about with different cars is the body style. There are so many body styles out there now that it can be hard to distinguish between them just based on the name (Except for the hatchback...that one is easy to figure out.)

Selling Your Car

There comes a point in every love affair where the "honeymoon phase" ends. Things become boring and stale, the things that used to excite you no longer give you that same buzz, and sometimes, some people start looking elsewhere for something that will give them that feeling again.

Marketing's First Cars

2018 Honda Civic Sedan LX

About a month ago, I gave the marketing team of Weins Canada a job. Think of a dream car. Doesn't matter how expensive it was, how rare it was or how absurd it was, tell me about your dream car. They delivered in spades, talking about everything from plausible (Buick Grand National) to completely out there (Lykan Hypersport). Sufficed to say, it was a fun article to write.

For this follow-up, I was a bit less fun.
