Chevy Camaro 2SS

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Chevy Camaro 2SS

So why am I driving a high-performance 455 HP machine like this SLOWER than I normally drive? Two reasons. One, because its fire-engine red exterior and the almost animal-like sounds coming out of those big twin pipes in the back make the Camaro SS a magnet for every law-enforcement professional...

Hyundai Accent Limited

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Hyundai Accent Limited

Sometimes I wonder about folks who drive a lot, yet have disdain for inexpensive cars. And you might ask, “Heck…if you drive a lot, wouldn’t you want the best vehicle that you could afford?: Not necessarily…and especially if most of that driving is in the city. More on that in a moment, tho’ First...

 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.0T AWD

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.0T AWD

2019 brings a complete re-do to Hyundai’s Santa Fe. And a well-done “clean sheet of paper” it is. We tested the two-row version that used to be called the Santa Fe “Sport”. Today it’s simply called “Santa Fe”…and their three-row version is now the “XL”. Makes sense, no? But just because Hyundai...

2018 Nissan Kicks

AutoNSider Review| 2018 Nissan Kicks SR PT

Nissan’s funky-looking Juke is gone, The all-new Kicks is Nissan’s new baby. Four doors and a hatch. Room for 4 – 5. And a little bit of attitude. Not “Bad-Boy” attitude, mind you, but more of a “Hey—Isn’t your vehicle supposed to be at least a little bit fun” kind of attitude. Yes—in contrast to...

AutoNSider Review | 2019 BMW X4 xDrive 30i

It’s OK to start a BMW review talking about the suspension, isn’t it? I ask, ‘cause “GO” is pretty much assumed with BMW, right? So, yes, it was the suspension that most impressed me about BMW’s X4.
