About Us

Founded in 2012, DoubleClutch.ca Magazine is one of Canada’s leading online automotive magazines with a panel of automotive experts. We have a wide area of expertise including current market trends, technology developments, performance driving, and automotive history. We bring this expertise together into our new vehicle evaluations to educate all types of consumers. On our motorcycle side, we have seasoned riders with years of experience. Rather than journalists who somehow ended up in the automotive world, we’re a tightly-knit group of passionate car and bike people who love to put our thoughts and opinions into words and stunning photos. 

DoubleClutch.ca Magazine is also a proud member of the Automobile Journalists’ Association of Canada and the International Motor Press Association. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or feedback – we would love to hear your thoughts!
