Hyundai Elantra Limited

AutoNSider Review | 2018 Hyundai Elantra Limited

We Americans have developed a taste for luxury. That’s why the average new vehicle these days includes heated power leather seating, alloys, blind-spot and cross traffic alerts, moonroof, proximity keys, smart phone connectivity, premium audio, even lane-keeping assists and auto high beams—and the...

2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

AutoNSider Review | 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

Is Jeep’s Rubicon a toy? Or is it a tool? I vote for tool. After all, you can have fun and look just as outdoorsy as you want in a lesser Jeep, and save maybe $10,000 in the process. But if you really want to USE your Jeep and traverse the mountains of Moab just like they do in the TV commercials,...

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Subaru Ascent

So maybe you’ve been makin’ miles for the last 5 or ten years in your Outback and maybe it’s your family, or maybe it’s YOU, but whatever the reason, you realize that it’s time to “plus-size” it a bit. Yep. It’s time for you to look for something in an “XL”. No worries. Subaru’s brand-new-for ’19...

2018 MINI Cooper SE Countryman ALL4 side

AutoNSider Review | 2018 MINI Cooper SE Countryman ALL4

This is the Big MINI, but let’s not get carried away with “big”, OK? To put it into perspective, MINI’s Countryman is almost 2 feet longer and 4 inches wider than their “baby” 2-door MINI, but still almost 2 feet shorter than something like a Toyota Camry. So while still on the somewhat-small side...

2018 Toyota C-HR

AutoNSider Review | 2018 Toyota C-HR

The C-HR is Toyota’s new entry into perhaps the hottest segment on wheels today. And it’s easy to see why pint-sized 5-door utility vehicles are doing so well: rising gas prices, crowded streets and even more crowded parking lots are all combining to make small nimble vehicles in demand. But there’...

AutoNSider Review | 2018 Nissan Rogue SL AWD

Quick Question: After the Ford F150 and Chevy Silverado, what’s the third-best selling vehicle in the USA right now? Toyota Camry? Corolla? Honda Civic? Nope… through March of this year, the #3-selling vehicle in America was the Nissan Rogue. Why? Style, content and price. While car dealers may...

2018 Toyota Camry XLE

AutoNSider Review | 2018 Toyota Camry XLE

Just look at the pictures of the XLE’s interior. Pleated and perforated heated leather that would look at home on any Lexus, right? And now the re-designed / re-engineered ’18 Camry wrings almost as much “go” out of its 203 HP 2.5-liter four as Lexus did a few years ago out of their 3.5-liter six...

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander 3.0 GT-S

AutoNSider Review | 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander 3.0 GT-S

Tough assignment: How do you get in the ring and duke it out with the likes of Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Hyundai, KIA, Mazda, Ford and Chevy… and win? Mitsubishi thinks the answer is that old consumer favorite… offer more for less… and then back it up with a strong warranty. And that’s what they seem...

2018 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring AWD

AutoNSider Review | 2018 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring AWD

If Mazda isn’t on your radar, you just might want to give it a second look. Size-wise, Mazda’s ’18 CX-9 is virtually the same size as Audi’s Q7, for example. Same on the outside... same 14+ cu ft storage behind the third row… same 38+ cu ft with the third row folded. And in Grand Touring trim,...
