Lexus LC 500 Coupe

AutoNSider Review | 2020 Lexus LC 500 Coupe

Who Makes the “Grandest” Grand Touring Machine? McLaren? Ferrari? Lamborghini? If you’re “touring” a track, sure…go with one of those guys. But if you’re touring a few hundred miles of Interstates and backroads, I’ve got another name you might want to consider…Lexus. Specifically, the Lexus LC 500...

Toyota Camry TRD

AutoNSider Review | 2020 Toyota Camry TRD

Son of a gun…I never heard THAT before! Yes…I’ve been in quite a few Toyota Camrys, but I’ve never punched “start” and heard a sweet little exhaust burble like this. Welcome to the TRD. TRD? Toyota Racing Division. And while the TRD is not quite ready for NASCAR, it does have some legit muscle….and...

Toyota C-HR

AutoNSider Review | 2020 Toyota C-HR Limited

Attitude If you wanted use just one word to sum up what makes Toyota’s C-HR stand out from its half-dozen or more competitors, it’s “Attitude”. Like all its competitor “cousins”, Toyota’s C-HR is a compact little four-door with a rear hatch. And like all the others, while the specs say it’ll seat...

With the all-new Encore GX, Buick just launched yet one more vehicle right at the heart of today’s market…smaller, nimble crossovers. And if you think the new GX looks kinda’ familiar…yes and no. The GX is the “regular” Encore’s big brother, but with four more inches in length. And those four...

AutoNSider Review | 2020 MAZDA CX-5

So with Utility Vehicles taking over roads across the USA…and new models / re-designs / re-freshens coming out like donuts at Krispy Kreme, how do you stand out in an ever-more crowded environment? If I said that Mazda’s answer was to be the “sports car” of SUVs, that’d be only half right today...

Cadillac CT6 Platinum AWD

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Cadillac CT6 Platinum AWD

Gotta’ admit…I’ve always wanted a CTS…the first of Cadillac’s CT’s. The guy across the street has an ’07. Beautiful metallic red with tan leather…gutsy 3.6 engine…broken tail light…scuffed up bumper…no starter. He wants two thousand more than I’m offering. Wish me luck. Where’s the appeal? Well, I...

Hyundai Sonata Limited

AutoNSider Review | 2020 Hyundai Sonata Limited

As good as a L___s? A few months ago one of the magazines did a feature comparing top trim level mainstream vehicles against luxury vehicles. Who won? I don’t remember if Hyundai’s new Sonata was in the test or not, but I do remember that the luxury vehicles lost more of the comparisons than they...

Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack

AutoNSider Review |2020 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack Plus Widebody

Is Dodge giving Europe the middle finger? I ask because Dodge isn’t kidding about this “Brotherhood of Muscle” stuff. Those of you with a little grey on top might still remember the days of Ford vs Chevy vs Dodge. It was the biggest rivalry of the time…fought out on NASCAR tracks, local roads, and...

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Ltd

AutoNSider Review | 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Ltd

I haven’t driven them all, but Hyundai’s new Sonata Hybrid is the best hybrid I’ve driven so far. Here’s why: It’s non-“hybridy”. Here’s what I mean. Just jump in and go. If you didn’t know it was a hybrid, you’d never know. The first hybrids years ago had vague steering, squishy brakes, and those...
