Fort George in the new Toyota RAV4!

Toyota Trinidad & Tobago launched their new 2019 RAV4 earlier this year and we couldn’t wait to drive their all-new mid-size crossover sport utility vehicle. Although it was a slightly steeper and more winding route than usual, we planned Fort George into our test drive loop to fully enjoy the RAV’s capabilities and the location’s amazing vistas. Was it going to be as good as the hype? We jumped into a 2019 RAV4 2WD high-spec version to find out!

Mazda’s MX-5 RF brings lightweight sports cars back!

In case you didn’t know, sports cars have returned to the Southern Sales & Service showrooms, specifically the one at Mazda. Equipped with Skyactiv technology and an all-new, smaller, stiffer and lighter chassis, we couldn’t wait to sample the Mazda MX5– a car reputed to deliver one of the purest driving experiences on the planet!

What's the Rush? Meet Toyota's new 7-seater!

In today’s market, a seven-seater vehicle has largely become out of reach for most people, even from non-luxury brands. Toyota’s all-new Rush is now one of the most affordable people movers on the market and it’s laden with more plusses than you think. We visited their Barataria showroom to take a test drive! 

I need rehab after driving the Boxster GTS!

Following our weekend with the Porsche Panamera in Fort Lauderdale, it was time for our sports car tour to Daytona Beach and back! My new ride for the next few days would be the sexy new Porsche 718 Boxster. I was handed the keys to the GTS version, which brings the best performance options coupled with the most popular options for everyday use– all at a price that is lower than if you ordered them separately. 

Driving the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid in Florida!

With tickets and hotel booked to a seminar in Fort Lauderdale, I also took the opportunity to contact Porsche Centre Trinidad and Porsche Latin America to see if I could review a few of their cars while out on this trip. I drafted my itinerary for the seven-day trip and was absolutely over the moon when they said that I could have both the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and the Porsche Boxster GTS (feature here) for a few days each to drive and evaluate!
