Hyundai Elantra GT

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N Line

Volkswagen, Honda and all you other “Hot Hatches”…you’re got company. Yes…Hyundai has taken their already well-regarded Elantra hatchback…added a good dash of Sriracha…and elbowed their way into the Hot Hatch Club. While Hyundai’s “regular” GT has a 161 HP 2.0 liter four, the N Line pumps out 201...

BMW X7

AutoNSider Review | 2019 BMW X7 xDrive50i

If this Bad Boy isn’t King of THE Hill, the X7 is certainly king of something…and something BIG. While there are vehicles out there that’ll climb steeper hills, BMW’s top-of-the-line X7 x Drive three-row SUV is a rare combination of speed, handling, technology, capability…plus a huge dose of...

Jaguar F

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR

I almost lost my “Man-Card”. Yup. I won’t say I was scared, but I was truly startled the first time I really “punched” this 550 HP machine. Acceleration? Oh yeah. More than I expected. Now I’ve driven 500…600…even 700 HP vehicles before, but this Jag knows how to put its 550 HP on the road. All-...

Audi A5

AutoNSider Review | AutoNsider, AutoInsider, Daryl Killian, Bob Jackson, review,

I’d like to buy one of these for my Bride. And that’s not to say that this Audi Cab doesn’t have the chops to be a guy’s car, too. No…it’s just that she’s a fun lady and this is a fun car. It’s hard to get behind the wheel of Audi’s A5 convertible without a big smile. It’s a light, tight delight to...

Chevy Traverse

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Chevy Traverse Premier

So let’s say that you’ve got a bit of a crew to tote, but no need to tow anything like a 28-foot boat. In which case, maybe you don’t need all the muscle that a big V-8 Tahoe would bring to the party, but you still want the space, comfort and technology, right? If that sounds like you, check out...

2019 Nissan Armada

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Nissan Armada SV 4WD

Nissan put a lot of meat on these bones.

Nissan Maxima

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Nissan Maxima SR

Well…what have we got here? A sports sedan? Luxury car? A tech showcase? Or a fashion statement, perhaps? Nissan has always billed its Maxima as a four-door sports car, and that may not be too far from the truth. Its 3.5 liter V-6 pumps out 300 HP and gives you darned decent “GO” pretty much as...

Volkswagen Jetta

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T SE

For just two-thirds of the cost of the average new vehicle, VW’s new ’19 Jetta offers most drivers all that they need. And maybe more. Yes…the ’19 Jetta is all-new, and brings a new, mildly upscale look…a bit like a slightly smaller Passat. And for a $23,000 window sticker, you get room for 5,...

Infiniti QX80

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Infiniti QX80 Limited 4WD

Get into a $90,000 vehicle and you’re going to assume some things, right? You’re going to figure that it’s got power, capability and at least a little over the top luxury before you even open the door, aren’t you? So how does a manufacturer get one-up on the competition these days? Today that...
