WORDS FROM THE

EDITOR Summer Heats Up, and so does the PreConstruction Market.

average rents in the GTA are approximately $2000 - $2200/month for a one-bedroom condo presenting the opportunity for positive cash flow. The payment schedules for preconstruction investment properties won’t tie up any cash and will provide an asset that has increased in value by the time it is ready for occupancy. Preconstruction provides the perfect solution for increasing your real estate portfolio in GTA west.

It is that time of year when we all slow down to enjoy family time over BBQ dinners and late night campfire chats. The treasured summer season is short and, as Canadians, we certainly must take advantage of soaking up every minute. The Oakville waterfront is buzzing with activity showcasing local businesses, artisans and festivals. Oakville is one of the most amazing places to spend fun-filled summer days and nights. I hope you enjoyed creating lasting memories over these past couple of months. Throughout the summer season, there has been a renewed interest in several GTA pre-construction investment opportunities. New construction is available in almost all prevalent neighbourhoods, and with the current market tipped in the buyer’s favour, it is the perfect time to expand your investment portfolio by getting involved. Purchasing a pre-construction condo, townhouse or house is a way to take advantage of neighbourhoods that are seeing record increases in property value. According to TREB, from July 2017 to July 2018 property prices in the GTA have increased 4.8%. The

The changes to the interest rates since Jan 2018 have slowed the speed of the market. However, even with the BOC increases, the lending rates are still at record lows. It is the ideal market conditions to take advantage of adding to your investment portfolio with a pre-construction property. As an investor, the current market is yours to explore. The opportunities in the Golden Horseshoe are widespread with so many options for interested buyers. The Invidiata team is familiar with the new and upcoming pre-construction properties for all budgets and portfolio needs. Let our team guide you to the perfect property to help you reach your investment goals. Contact us today and we will be happy to get you started on the path to success. All the best,

5 TIPS Season FOR THE

Scrimping on the cleanup effort will cost you more next spring. Leaves left on your lawn over winter can be deadly on grass. Keep leaves raked throughout the fall and remove as much as possible prior to snow.

Vibrant or pastel spring bulbs welcome sunny days as we emerge from winter. Plant lots of tulips, daffodils or allium. Group colours together for greater impact.

Tree selection is smaller in fall, but it’s the perfect time to plant (cooler weather and more moisture). Next spring, your trees will wake up in a new surrounding and hardly notice they have been moved!

Take care of your lawn. Now is a great time to top-dress and overseed bare patches. Fall fertilizer is the most important.

Plan for next spring now. Don’t wait to start the process. Landscapers’ schedules will fill up quick!

THE LIFESTYLE BEYOND THE LINKS BY TARA MACINTOSH

Mississaugua Golf and Country Club harmoniously represents both tradition and progress. Speaking with COO, Jeff Germond, it is quickly apparent that the Membership is the heart and soul of the Club. Its time and energy is focused on creating experiences that enhance Members’ vibrant and healthy lifestyles. Jeff remarks, “Whether you are a new or established Member, we listen to what it is you are looking for, and we strive to provide the best overall experience possible.”

THEINVIDIATACOLLECTION.COM

Social and sport activities are at the heart of Club life. In addition to the everyday fine and casual dining experiences created by its talented culinary team, the Club regularly organizes catered events, live entertainment and themed celebrations. Beyond its world-class golf course that has hosted 6 Canadian Opens, facilities include four clay tennis courts and six curling sheets. Members can also take part in Bridge, one of its long-standing traditions. A new fitness and indoor golf facility will be added to the Club this fall.

INVESTMENT OF OVER $8 MILLION IN THE PAST 5 YEARS TO MODERNIZE ITS EXISTING FACILITIES. 32 | FALL 2018

Mississaugua Golf and Country Club has a long and rich history important to the fabric of both the Club and the Mississauga community. The celebrated history is, in part, captured in pictures that adorn the walls throughout the inviting century-old clubhouse. The photographs and plaques tell the story of significant accomplishments and unforgettable moments that have taken place since 1906, when the Club was established. When asked, the Members are delighted to share their most memorable experiences, further cementing the proud traditions. Also chronicled by the framed pictures is the Club’s evolution. Change is a given, and as one Member explains, “A club can’t make it through 100 years without accepting and responding to change. There isn’t much that this Club hasn’t seen or had to deal with in the last century.” The Club’s acceptance of change is made clear by its investment of over $8 Million in the past 5 years to modernize its existing facilities. Projects completed most recently include the construction of a new casual pub for Members to enjoy (see photos above). Also, the prestigious golf course has received extensive renovations – a new drainage and irrigation system, an installation of forward tees, and a total bunker reconstruction. The list of exciting improvements continues with two projects in progress, soon to be unveiled this fall – a state-of-the-art fitness facility and 2 indoor golf simulators. These will be accessible to all Members, bringing the Club to a new level of engagement and utility. Cardio machines, resistance-training equipment and studio floor for group fitness classes will provide variety and accommodate all fitness interests. The simulators will be of interest to seasoned Golf Members looking to keep their skills sharp year-round; but also to Social Members who are taking up the game and want to supplement their 5 rounds of golf and access to the outdoor practice facilities.

Beyond capital investments, the Board and Management Team strategically review the Club’s policies and procedures in response to the ever-changing needs of existing and potential Members. Examples, reflecting the changes in the surrounding communities, are the introduction of Trial Memberships, and the restructuring of category options for Under-40 and Junior Memberships. Of the 400+ new Members who have joined in the past 5 years, more than one-third are between the ages of 25 and 40. The one commitment that is unwavering is the promise to provide value to the Members. The Club is always searching for ways to make the Members feel fulfilled, comfortable and, most of all, heard. Listening closely to every Member, whether they have been part of the Club for one year or twenty years, is imperative to harmony and growth. This fair and inclusive system is a unique and important part of being a Member of the Mississaugua Golf and Country Club. Adding value to the membership is the highest priority for the Board and Management Team and it is evident in every decision that is executed. The improvements and additions have kept Mississaugua Golf and Country Club one of the most relevant and expanding clubs in the GTA. As the Mississauga community grows and changes, so does the Club. It has become known as a progressive and inclusive environment, providing exceptional year-round service and experiences for all Members and guests. It will always be a place to create new friendships and build lasting memories with family and friends – this will never change. Once you visit the Club you are sure to be swept away. 34 | FALL 2018

ADVANCES IN AUTOMOTIVE PROPULSION TECH OFFER GREENER PASTURES BY DARREN DOBSON As market acceptance of gas-electric hybrid (HEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV), and fully electric cars (BEV) grows, even punctilious luxury car makers are eschewing ultra-efficient combustion engines for the greener pastures of advanced battery-powered options offering huge advances in maximum range capabilities. Regardless of social strata, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that it is more cost-effective to power a vehicle with cheap electric power once the stigma of ‘range anxiety’ is removed.

FALL 2018 | 49


With many luxury marques lining up ‘alternate propulsion’ (non-100% combustion) vehicles to showcase publicly, it’s an exciting time for more capable buyers who can afford the best tech money can buy. Luxury leaders like Tesla’s Model S (BEV), BMW’s i8 Roadster (PHEV), Jaguar’s I-Pace (BEV), Volvo’s XC90 T8 (PHEV), Cadillac’s CT6 (PHEV), and Lexus’ LS 500h (Hybrid) are but a few. These luxury brands are investing billions into R & D to be the next BIG thing. The growing global popularity of the all-electric, FIA-sanctioned Formula E racing circuit is currently powered by luxury marques BMW, Jaguar, and Audi. Mercedes-Benz and Porsche will join the Formula-E grid for the 2019/2020 season. Competitive racing has long been the testing ground for new automotive technology, and Jaguar’s 2016 $22,000,000 CDN investment in Formula-E indicates how charged they are for the future of alternate propulsion vehicles. Typically, luxury automakers begin a push into alternate propulsion with the reliability of hybrids. With the growing advances in technology, they can now skip this initial phase and the plug-in hybrid stage, advancing straight to the all-electric vehicle option. Lodestar luxury-marque Rolls-Royce has indicated that’s their plan with an upcoming new all-electric Phantom. The CEO of BMW’s luxury British brand Rolls-Royce, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, confirmed, “We will go full electric. We won’t do any interim steps.” Even McLaren Automotive, an illustrious alumnus of the combustion-powered Formula One circuit, is committed to ensuring that its sports car and super car range will be hybrid within seven years. Beginning in 2013 with their revolutionary P1 model, the (world’s) first gas-electric hybrid hyper-car, McLaren’s entire range is due to be all hybrid models by 2025. McLaren is introducing the 2019 Speedtail this October 2018 with new hybrid technology. The Speedtail is described as the “Ultimate Hyper-GT” with the highest top speed of any McLaren yet, including their iconic F1 which exceeds 391 km/h (243 mph), and promises levels of customization and individualization never seen before in a three-seat configuration. Sadly, only 106 are to be produced worldwide. Jaguar, known for breathtaking design in luxury, is opting to excite the soul with an all-electric 50 | FALL 2018

performance SUV. Deliveries of the new I-PACE are expected to land in Canada in early fall, 2018. A pure Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), Jaguar says the I-PACE is the “world’s smartest five-seater sports car.” Offering a fully-charged estimated range of 386km, it uses technology developed in the I-TYPE Formula-E car, specifically electric motors that generate 394 horsepower and 512 lb-ft of torque.

Around the world, governments are mandating automakers to make vehicles more fuel efficient. E-Hybrid models, and the soon to be produced Taycan in 2019. The all-electric Taycan is a brand new model, designed (and priced) specifically to compete with Tesla’s Model-S with a price of $75,000 USD. Not to be out run, Mercedes-AMG showcased their top-of-the-line surprise called “PROJECT ONE” hyper-car. Built around an F1 race car’s 1.6 litre 52 | FALL 2018

turbocharged hybrid engine, smaller than a Toyota Corolla’s (1.8 litre), that delivers upwards of 1,000 hp, the ONE will have a very non-Corolla price tag of roughly $3.5 million CDN. Mercedes-Benz is testing its first foray into full BEV’s, under the EQ marque, the SUV-style EQC scheduled for 2019 delivery, followed by a compact-style EQA concept currently in development.

The first luxury marque to test ‘greener pastures’ was Elon Musk’s Tesla, which has blazed the trail with sleek, practical BEV’s against which today’s luxury cars are bench-marked. The super-quiet, super-quick Model S leads the luxury class market in US-sales, controlling 34% of the market as of Q1 2018. That’s more than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Porsche Panamera, BMW 7 Series, or the Lexus LS. Consumer Reports rated the Model S the “most-loved car of 2014 by its owners” with 98% of Tesla owners saying they’d buy another. What’s driving this rise in luxury-car greener pastures? Around the world, governments are mandating automakers to make vehicles more fuel efficient. Some jurisdictions, like BC and Quebec in Canada, offer taxpayer-funded subsidies to purchase alternate propulsion cars. Some countries, like China by 2030 and Norway by 2025, are mandating new cars be all-electric. Undoubtedly, the biggest factor leading to huge investments in alternate propulsion models by luxury car makers is because technology has finally caught up to reality. All things being equal, electric just makes more sense…and cents.

TO WEAR A JEWEL OR TIMEPIECE from Knar Jewellery is to wear art. To know why it was carefully selected or designed is to understand why the jeweller thrives today. The story of Knar Jewellery is one of lasting bonds, and it is a story you are invited to join.

IsabelleFa Flix.Flex Bracelets

72 | FALL 2018

IT ALL BEGAN FOR KNAR JEWELLERY when the first location opened its doors in Guelph, Ontario in 1978. The desire to create a special fine jewellery shopping experience fuelled the passion and entrepreneurial spirit of co-founders and brothers Greg and Jeff Buzbuzian. Four decades later, casual shoppers have become their treasured clients and these long-lasting relationships are the owners’ greatest measure of continued success.

THEINVIDIATACOLLECTION.COM


FROM THE START, the Knar Jewellery mission was to create long-term customer happiness. That mission has never wavered. By always keeping client needs and desires in mind, while operating with the utmost honesty and integrity, clients continue to return as they reach milestones in life. The trust and bond that has been built over the years has given the company a stellar reputation and contributed to receiving numerous awards of excellence. Jeff Buzbuzian comments, “We choose pieces based on our clients’ lifestyles today and what is anticipated for the future.” The clients are, in a way, part of the buying team. The owners have their fingers on the pulse of fashion, but quality and customer satisfaction is always at the forefront.

Written By: Tara MacIntosh

BUYING A PIECE OF FINE JEWELLERY that becomes a part of your life story deserves to begin and end with absolute magic. The warm experience one has at Knar Jewellery is often remembered, along with the dazzling options. After many years of heartfelt service, co-founder Jeff Buzbuzian remarks, “When people come into the store they are amazed with what they see that has been our goal since day one.”


FINDING THE RIGHT ITEM to bring joy to or celebrate an upcoming special occasion is behind every decision that is made. As such, international designers are carefully selected based on artistry, quality and craftsmanship. However, those qualities alone are not enough. Successful designers must live and breathe passion and commitment to their craft. Designers and their families who engage with the Knar Jewellery brand have been perfecting their craft for decades or, in some cases, generations.

IMPORTANT MOMENTS IN LIFE can be marked with truly world-class design at Knar Jewellery. Designers come from near and far, including Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, England, USA, Bali and Japan. Jeff remarks, “A lot of the high-quality pieces at Knar are not replicas or trends, they are unique quality pieces that will last for generations.� Some pieces are delicate and dainty, and others have a metal weight that is not for the weak. From luxury timepieces, casual everyday jewels, one-of-a-kind diamonds to exquisite

WORLD-CLASS DESIGN AT KNAR JEWELLERY.

UPON ENTERING THE STORE LOCATIONS, whether in Guelph, Oakville or Toronto, in every direction there are jewels that silently boast their craftsmanship. In the Oakville location, it cannot go unnoticed that the entire east wall is dedicated to love. The Hearts on Fire collection is, in a word, breathtaking. Once you find yourself in front of the display case the question becomes - how do you choose just one piece? Drawing you in with sparkle beyond imagination, hours could easily be lost taking in the brilliance that lays before you. As an official retailer for Rolex, the in-store Rolex display truly makes you pause in appreciation. Additional notable collections include Chopard, Tudor, Mikimoto, GlashĂźtte Original and John Hardy, which must be personally experienced to be fully appreciated. AS THE FORTIETH ANNIVERSARY of Knar Jewellery approaches, it would not be a celebration without the community that shared in the growth and success of the business. The events that mark the anniversary are plentiful and are an extension of the deep gratitude that Knar Jewellery has for their supporters. The celebration is slated to be a year-round series of events that will pull the curtain back and invite clients in to experience some of the behind-the-scenes magic. One planned event is the chance

to meet and mingle with select designers in person. Celebrated designers will be invited to share their passion for creating and will reveal their inspiration behind the unique designs they have presented. The Knar Jewellery family wants their clients to have the best feeling about their jewellery by understanding as much as possible about the people who make it, how they make it and the reasons why they make it. THE THRILL OF THE JEWELLERY WORLD has never dulled in the widely

romantic hearts of the cofounders. There is no greater satisfaction than creating something out of an idea, or a feeling or a deep passion for life. The inventory available to view is a way to become familiar with the pieces, the designers and the materials, but the creative process can extend well beyond what you see. The store locations receive up to fifteen custom jewellery requests per week for unique and handmade pieces. This is the magic that elevates Knar Jewellery to an experience truly like no other.

THEINVIDIATACOLLECTION.COM


EXCEPTIONAL DESIGN AND UNIQUE PIECES LOOKING FORWARD, Knar Jewellery will continue to provide exceptional design and unique pieces. A discussion regarding the future of the business always turns to expansion in the digital world. Despite the fact that their website is most impressive, the online experience is not what Knar Jewellery is about. The store is the place where relationships are built and where clients first meet and fall in love with their most favourite pieces. Creating a superior client experience with a personal touch and providing timeless quality pieces is where the company will maintain focus. TO KNOW THE STORY of Knar Jewellery is to know that the mission has remained strong and steady from the very beginning. Once you take the time to become part of the Knar Jewellery family, you will quickly realize what a special relationship you have entered into. Stepping into their next chapter, you are invited to come into the store to become familiar with the joy that is Knar Jewellery – a place where you will always be welcomed with open arms.

LUXURY AUTOMOTIVE BUYING N GUIDE

ow is a strange time in the life of the automobile, and for the manufacturers who populate the industry. We stand on the bridge from what we know to what we have only seen in fantasy – a span that will take us from internal combustion to energy efficiency, from function to fiction, from driver to driverless. We are navigating the gap between reality and realization, piloted by an industry built on ambition and ingenuity.

By Mike Spry

But what about the few of us? The purists. The enthusiasts. The connoisseurs. For we are a breed who believe the automobile to not simply be a conveyance, but an experience – wild animals that need to be tamed, mechanical beasts to be cared for, untamed automation in want of direction, domination, domestication. Drivers. For us few, the automobile is a privilege, and the height of that privilege is luxury‚ a realm where only a select few bear the honoured title of excellence. 2019 is the golden age for automotive luxury, and the choices for the discerning driver are not as infinite as the roads they desire. Only a select few attain the level of excellence associated with said luxury. But whether your fantasy leans towards the elegant utility of the 2019 Audi Q8, the iconic reverie of the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR, the inspired grace of the 2019 BMW 8 Series, the brand ambition of the 2019 Cadillac XT4, the sport and spirit of the 2018 Porsche Macan, function and force of the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, or the daydream drive of the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT R Coupe – 2019 is built for those who know the grand fissure between reality and science fiction, and desire to drive that chasm in luxury.


2019 MERCEDES-AMG

GT R COUPE

Some automobiles are made for function and family. Some are built for utility and practicality. Some are born of ambition and evolution. Some are simply conveniences, conveyances, cars. But some, a select few, are built to test the limits of engineering, to reach heights once only dreamt of, to redefine our very concept of style and speed. Some. But only one is the Mercedes-AMG GT R Coupe.

9 8 2018/19 LUXURY AUTOMOTIVE BUYING GUIDE

The 2019 GT R Coupe is a bullet, a sleek, silky, finelycrafted Mercedes that is for drivers who crave the feel of an F1 speedster and the style that can only come from one of the world’s preeminent automobile makers, who for 100 years have been reimagining the luxury marketplace. To say that the GT R Coupe is like nothing you’ve ever driven would be an understatement, as aerodynamic as anything on the road, as graceful as anything you’ve ever dreamt of putting in your driveway. Forget mileage. Forget sticker price. Forget 0 to 100. This coupe eschews expectations in favour of ambition. This isn’t a car. It’s a daydream. The 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT R Coupe is everything you’d expect from an iconic luxury automobile manufacturer with the highest standards for its discerning drivers. A handcrafted AMG 4.0L Biturbo V8 Engine compliments the AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) and AMG TRACTION CONTROL. The AMG High Performance Braking System eases the vehicle into each curve, each turn. Styled as one would expect with a carbon fibre roof and engine compartment cover, 19”/20” AMG 5-twin-spoke forged wheels, Nappa Leather and DINAMICA upholstery. Add in the patented COMAND online navigation with Mercedes-Benz apps and a rearview camera and blind spot assist, this tribute to automotive excellence can take you everywhere – in style and in a hurry.

2019 BMW

8 SERIES

Bayerische Motoren Werke. Bavarian Motor Works. BMW. Has any acronym every elicited as much excitement? Visions of grace? Of luxury? Of speed, style, accomplishment, arrival? No three letters when assembled evoke a sense of excellence and aspiration like BMW. And as the automotive industry evolves, as it searches to find its place in an ever-changing global landscape, the German automotive manufacturer maintains a unique place among its rivals: imagesetter, pacesetter, trendsetter. Few other companies encourage us to ask the eternal question: What’s next? The 2019 BMW 8 Series.

2454 South Service Road W., Oakville (905) 845-3577 • buddsbmw.com

KEY FACTS The BMW 850i xDrive fully unleashes the race car genes of the BMW 8 Series Coupe, with a 4.4 Litre Twin Power Turbo V8 engine Producing 523 Horsepower & 553 lb.-ft. of Torque. 8 Speed Steptronic Sport Transmission with wider gear ratios and optimized hydraulics for sharper gear shifts. xDrive AWD System with fully variable torque distribution, capable of delivering 100% of available torque to the rear wheels. 0-60 MPH in 3.6 Seconds with available Launch Control system. Adaptive M Suspension standard on all 8 Series Coupe models.

The realization of the BMW 8 Series is nearly beyond words, but the manufacturer itself comes close: “There’s inspired. There’s elite. And then there’s the All-New 8 Series. A supremely powerful, seductive coupe that’s crafted to elevate every sense beyond simple satisfaction and into euphoria.” To rewrite the prose born of a grand tourer that itself defines reinvention is itself born of folly. The first generation of the BMW 8 Series went offline in the 1990s. But with all great things, we reach into our past for inspiration, and so the 8 Series was reborn for a second generation, for a new generation. And to see it up close, to drive it, to experience it, is to live within the evolution of a model, to live the journey of ingenuity. BMW itself warns prospective drivers of this promise: “The All-New 8 Series is no mere evolution. This compelling combination of power, intelligence and beauty is expressed in a bold design that will engage the senses like you’ve never experienced before.”

20 Inch Light alloy M Wheels with large 19 Inch M-Sport Braking system (4 Piston front/Single piston rear) Full LED headlight system with BMW Laserlight Technology. Enrich the appearance of the new BMW 8 Series with BMW Individual exclusive paint finishes, Merino leather fittings and fine wood trim options. The BMW Live Cockpit Professional with navigation function includes a high quality display network, consisting of a high resolution 10.25” Info Display that can be operated by touch, and a fully digital 12.3” instrument cluster. The pioneering iDrive 7 system makes navigating and interacting with the 8 Series’ communication features easier and more individual than ever before.

Two engines will be available for the discerning BMW aficionado: an 840d and a M850i, both boasting BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system and an eight-speed ‘Steptronic’ automatic gearbox, a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 offering 0-60mph in either 4.9 or 3.7 seconds, or a quarter of the time it took to read this sentence, or about as quickly as the return of the 8 Series went from the concept revealed at the 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este automotive showcase, to your driveway in 2019.

2019 AUDI

Q8

Audi, the iconic German car manufacturer, has spent its 108 years denying the premise of the idiom, “substance over style.” Why – it’s designers and drivers ask – must the two be mutually exclusive? In truth, and in production, Audi proves that they don’t need to be. In the 2019 Audi Q8, the automotive leader in the marriage of form and performance, once again successfully argues that style and substance can coexist, on the highways, byways, thruways and driveways of luxury car ownership.

The 2019 Audi Q8 is modelled after the original Quattro coupe – the Ur-Quattro – the European sportster that tickled the fancy of our domesticated youths. In its modern incarnation, the Quattro has evolved, become a product not just of the demands of the realities of a new century, but the demands of an evolved driver. As we race towards the quarter mark of the 2000s, the discerning customer wants everything and more in their luxury car purchase, and Audi strives continually to satisfy those demands; speed and grace, utility and elegance, responsiveness and responsibility.

The Q8 lists itself as a “mid-size luxury sport SUV coupe,” but that’s more of a mouthful than a descriptive missive. In reality, the Q8 is the evolution of the Quattro for a rapidly evolving automotive landscape. The Q8 marries the beauty of a four-door luxury coupe with the functionality of a large SUV. Off-road or off-boulevard, the Q8 uses cutting-edge technology that adapts to either extreme, powered by a 3.0 V6 engine with mHEV (mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle), promising 335 HP and a perfected balance between efficiency and excellence.

2019 JAGUAR

F-PACE SVR So much of automotive excellence is born of our dreams. As children we aspire in our reverie to the fastest rides, the most elegant models, the fantasy of near flight and technological ambition. As we get older, that same reverie informs our desires as drivers, as buyers, as designers and as manufacturers. The automobile – each and every model – is born of concept, and what is concept if not a dream? And it’s not a stretch to imagine that somewhere, someone dreamt of a Jaguar’s grace in the body of a Land Rover’s utility. Wake up: Here’s the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR.

1 0 4 2018/19 LUXURY AUTOMOTIVE BUYING GUIDE

When we were growing up, was there a more exotic automobile than the Jaguar? Besides its style and grace, its European affectations and international representation of luxury, its James Bond mystery and cinematic aesthetic, no automobile more organically embodies the essence of its name like Jaguar. The Americas biggest cat and Americas most prominent global industry repatriated by England’s majesty, the apotheosis of the unique animal most associated with the brand: the black morph or black panther – elusive, exotic, electrifying. Similarly, the Land Rover—England’s “other” iconic automotive manufacturer – has always represented the ultimate in the SUV, the evolution from utilitarian to artistry, from proletariat to aristocracy. As the SUV became a more prominent part of our automotive options, the Land Rover carved the path – literally at times – and lead the field. The 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR is no different than its forefathers: it is the absolute class of its class, the idealization and realization of the evolution of the marketplace. Like it’s feline namesake, the F-Pace SVR is a compact and well-muscled animal, boasting 550 horsepower from a 5.0-liter V8 engine rivaling the Mercedes-AMG GLC63 and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio for best in class. Each and every corner of the vehicle is a realization of the Jaguar/Land Rover dream: style and function in an exotic body.

2018 PORSCHE

MACAN 1 0 6 2018/19 LUXURY AUTOMOTIVE BUYING GUIDE

One might ask why an iconic automotive giant like Porsche—known for and built on a legacy of the speedster, the coupe, the elegant and graceful sports car of film, of flight, of fancy—would bother entering into the saturated and competitive luxury crossover utility vehicle market. That question is not just answered, but rendered in folly, by the performance and perfection of the 2018 Porsche Macan.

2250 South Service Road W, Oakville 1-855-979-9864 • porschecentreoakville.com

Macan is the Javanese name for tiger, and the essence of its etymology inhabits each curve and corner of the luxury CUV. The Javanese people are known for their adaptability and evolution, absorbing the very best elements and influence from cultures all around the globe, respecting each appropriation in reverence of ancestry, spirit, ambition and excellence. Tigers are majestic, solitary, unique. They stand out in the jungle for their menace, their demand for respect. They’re quick, slight, strong, bold and beautiful – qualities embodied by their automotive namesake, the 2018 Porsche Macan. The German automotive monarch’s CUV offering promises a ride like no other, exactly what you’d expect from a Porsche. The base Macan is 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine promising 252 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque – taking your from zero to 100 in 6.1 seconds and 228km/hr. The Macan S upgrades to a 3.0-litre V6 and 340 horsepower; going to 100 in 5.0 seconds and reaching 250km/hr. A GTS – the high-performance Macan has 360hp, goes from zero to sixty in 4.8 seconds and tops out at 255km/hr. The largest of the majestic German tigers? The Macan Turbo, with 3.6 litres, 100 in 4.4 seconds, and hitting 260 on its journey through the concrete jungle. It takes a lot of bravado to name your CUV after the wild’s most fearsome and fickle beast. Few in the industry would take such a chance, and even fewer could exceed expectations. The 2018 Porsche Macan takes that chance, and roars with perfection.

2018 ALFA ROMEO

STELVIO

An Alfa Romeo is the very definition of automotive exoticism. An Italian speedster bearing the Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili Romeo name is not just a car, it’s the embodiment of possibility, of reverie, of everything our road experiences aspire to. An Alfa Romeo isn’t just a car, it is the realization of excellence, of luxury, of perfection. But more than that, it’s a promise of something special, of not just opulence but exuberance. No one drives an Alfa Romeo; they experience 108 years of vehicular fantasy.

If an Alfa Romeo is indeed the chimera of our automotive ambitions, then the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the realization of an unexpected daydream. The Stelvio is Alfa Romeo’s first production SUV, a modified Giorgio platform shared with the Giulia, which takes the Italian icon’s reputation for sport and speed and infuses it into the function and force of a five-door compact luxury crossover SUV. The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Stelvio Ti standard all-wheel drive boast a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, producing 280hp and 306 lb-ft of torque. The Ti will hit 100km in just 5.4 seconds, so buckle up and hang on. The high-performance Quadrifoglio model jumps up to a 505-hp, 443 lb-ft of torque, 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 and an

all-wheel-drive system, the kind of performance that leaves other drivers and manufacturers salivating. If you’re in the market for a luxury crossover SUV, Alfa Romeo’s offering is setting the bar from which to judge all others. It’s not just a sports car SUV, a Giulia’s opulence masquerading as function and utility. It’s the evolution of a market, and the redefinition of CUV possibility. Stelvio’s name is derived from Italy’s Stelvio Pass, the country’s highest mountain pass, celebrated for its 48 circuitous switchbacks. What better inspiration for an automobile built for the challenge of elements and the speed of automation.

XT4

1 1 0 2018/19 LUXURY AUTOMOTIVE BUYING GUIDE

At some point in our history, between the day that the first Cadillac’s tires met American blacktop and the day you decided to invest in America’s preeminent automobile, the name Cadillac became an idiom symbolic of perfection. “The Cadillac of” is common parlance for describing something at the top of its industry, the best in show, the leader of the pack. So when looking for a crossover SUV to fit your automotive needs, why search for the Cadillac of crossovers when the root of that perfection has entered the market with their own? Fittingly, the Cadillac of crossovers is the brand new 2019 Cadillac XT4.

The XT4, a compact CUV, is a slightly junior offering to the XT5 providing Cadillac enthusiasts an option above sedan and below SUV. Available with both front- and all-wheel drive, the XT4 is an option Cadillac drivers have been waiting for, that perfect marriage between SUV utility and sedan style, all under that promise of perfection that comes with the Cadillac brand.

Being branded with a name that elicits notions of excellence and luxury is both burden and privilege. The XT4 has over 115 years of automotive history to live up to. But that’s a challenge that Cadillac both welcomes and exceeds with the XT4, a title well on its way to its own idiom: the XT4 of crossover SUV’s.

Four standard USB Ports and three 12-volt accessory power outlets Models equipped with the available navigation radio also receive an SD memory card reader in the centre console The full suite of active safety features includes Surround Vision and second-generation Rear Camera Mirror (available)

But the Cadillac is not simply an heir, a surname upon which to tread. The XT4 boasts a 237-hp turbo-four with 258 lb-ft of torque and uses a nine-speed automatic transmission, powering the CUV the way you’d expect from a Cadillac. Inspired by its senior, the XT5, the XT4 has the bravado of a younger brother, styled with a vertical grille and three trim options: Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport.
