MERCEDES GLB

AutoNSider Review | 2020 MERCEDES GLB 250

Son of a gun. A nice little Mercedes for the price of a Toyota or Honda! Well…kinda’. Actually, Mercedes’ all-new GLB 250 SUV is certainly “nice”…but it’s not all that little. You’ll find ample room for five ( or more ) and a fair amount of gear. Legroom in the sliding and reclining rear seat can...

Subaru Outback Limited XT

AutoNSider Review | 2020 Subaru Outback Limited XT

The Outback is the main reason that Subaru has been the fastest-growing car company in the USA for the past ten years…and now for 2020, it’s been completely redesigned. But not to worry…if you liked the previous Outback, you should like the ’20 even more. As you’d expect with the redesign, the new...

KIA SOUL

AutoNSider Review | 2020 KIA Soul GT-Line Turbo

This is one of the best “Urban Warriors” that I’ve driven. Period. Slightly elevated driving position…room for 5…a user-friendly rear hatch…chair-height easy-in / easy-exit…excellent park-ability…most of the creature-comforts that we all seem to value…30-ish MPGs on regular…almost pot-hole-proof...

Hyundai Elantra

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Hyundai Elantra Sport

Think you already know all about Elantras? Think again. Yes…The Elantra Sport just might teach you something! While most mere mortal Elantras have a non-turbo 2.0 four that pumps out 147 HP and gets 30 to 40 MPG, the Sport has a smaller 1.6 turbo four that’s good for 201 HP and still-decent mileage...

 Mercedes AMG GT RAMG

AutoNSider Review | 2020 Mercedes AMG GT R

Front Row, baby…nothin’ but front row! Yes…valet this bright yellow work of art, and you won’t have to look hard to find it when you’re ready to leave. And just to give you a feel as to the league that this ride is in, that “Solarbeam Metallic Yellow” is a $9,900 option. But hey…I’m getting ahead...

Cadillac XT6

AutoNSider Review | 2020 Cadillac XT6 Premium AWD

What is it? The XT6 is Cadillac’s all-new for ’20 three-row SUV. One size smaller…but nothing like their larger Escalade. Three-row / seven passenger seating, heated leather, heated steering, 20” alloys, sunroof, hands-free liftgate, voice recognition, wireless charging, all the expected safety...

BMW M850i xDrive

AutoNSider Review | 2019 BMW M850i xDrive Convertible

Do you get a little kick out of it when you valet and the attendant says something like “Hey Big Daddy…nice ride”…or “Whoa Momma…lookin’ good!” Or when they get to know you and put “Mr. or Ms. Before your first name…instead of your last? BMW’s biggest convertible just seems to bring an added...

Toyota Camry SE

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Toyota Camry SE

I think today’s Camry SE kinda’ resembles a Mercedes “E” Class from a few decades ago. Crazy talk? No. Unlike the high-tech luxury-loaded vehicle that it is today, back in the beginning Mercedes’ E was a little more humble…a solid vehicle known as much for it’s longevity as its luxury. Not the...
