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...

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Lexus NX 300

If you don’t need three rows, it’s had to imagine that you won’t find what you need in Lexus’ NX 300. Unlike its bigger brother, the RX, Lexus’ NX has been on the US market for a little less than five years now. And while the NX is Lexus’ top-selling SUV in space-challenged Europe, the RX outsells...

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Kia Niro EV

I wasn’t afraid Yes…I drove a new ’19 KIA NIRO all-electric CUV and I wasn’t afraid. Afraid of………….? Afraid of running out of juice. Of not having enough “GO” to hit expressway on-ramps with the necessary vigor. Of having to forgo energy-sapping amenities like heated AND cooled seats. Of not having...

Toyota C-HR

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Toyota C-HR Limited

This vehicle ought to come in camo. Why? Attitude. Toyota has made what just might be one of the most feisty-looking “Urban Warriors” on the road today. While at first glance, the CH-R might remind you of Nissan’s departed Juke, the CH-R is 9 inches longer and a little wider. There’s legitimate...

KIA Forte EX

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Kia Forte EX

Some people still don’t get it. They think that KIA is still a price product. That may have been true ten or so years ago, but today, every model in KIA’s line-up can stand toe-to-toe with any of their competitors. We recently tested the all-new ’19 KIA Forte for a week, and came away darned...

Mitsubishi Outlander

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander

Really? Mitsubishi? Champ of exactly what? Let’s start with “Champ of the most rows at the lowest price of any SUV out there today.” And those are leather-lined rows…all three rows of ‘em…heated in the front…riding on 18” alloys…with all the blind-spot, lane-change, and rear-cross-traffic alerts...
