2015 Infiniti QX60 | Shaun Keenan for Ignition

Fast Test: 2015 Infiniti QX60 3.5 AWD

Road Trippin’ Stalwart _ It was completely and hopelessly covered in dead bugs following the drive to Montreal for the 2015 Canadian Grand Prix, but that didn’t stop this utility vehicle from being any less luxurious. The rear entertainment system kept my young son smiling at the sights and sounds of Lightning McQueen and Minions for hours while the Bose… Read more →

2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

Fast Test: 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

Charger Hellcat Bites Hard _ Its trunk could probably swallow a Fiat 500, and it has two more doors and 306 litres more passenger volume than its Challenger SRT Hellcat stablemate. It has more horsepower and torque than the Viper SRT (707 hp/650 lb-ft versus 645/600), and gets from 0-100 km/h almost as fast (four versus 3.5 seconds). The eight-speed… Read more →

It certainly screams ‘Hey, look at me!’ and it blasts off like a rocket. That it costs more than many houses, I can only imagine what the neighbours were thinking. The interior… Read more →

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat | Shaun Keenan

Tested: 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

#WTHellcat?! _ The first time I drove the Dodge Challenger wasn’t back in the summer of ’71 (I wasn’t event born yet) and, no, it wasn’t an original coupe from the last days of the penultimate muscle car era. But it feels like just yesterday that I and the then-new 2009 Challenger SRT bonded on the high-performance test track during… Read more →

2015 Subaru WRK STI | Shaun Keenan

Tested: 2015 Subaru WRX STI

A Wolf in Wolf Clothing _ My chance to drive the 2015 WRX STI finally came during a Subaru Canada club event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park earlier this year. It wasn’t a full day of flat-out, white-knuckled lapping, but it was a great opportunity to get some seat time, feel out the changes and preview the new DDT. First… Read more →
