Dodge Ram 1500

2015-Dodge-Ram-1500

Jake S. The 2015 Dodge Ram 1500 truck was fully equipped along with customizable parts. The truck sat up high giving the option of two different stairs to enter. Climbing into the front the passenger and driver were offered lots of room to move about. One of the most notable features was the amount of space in the center compartment and throughout the front two seats. Moving into the back 3 seats awaited 3 smaller passengers that would find comfortably. Not as much room as you'd think from the outside but overall the seats provide comfort and looks. Usually in trucks the back window is slid back with a hand but in the front, on the roof, a button is provided for easy access. Being as big as it is the pick up the truck has is incredible and you can really feel it's power though the … [Read more...]

2015 Jeep Renegade

2015-Jeep-Renegade

Emily S. This past week we drove the 2015 Jeep Renegade. This was a basic jeep that was specialized for driving on rough terrain areas. We drove it off road on the dirt roads up to a field. I thought it drove really nicely and it was smooth over all the bumps. I thought it was really comfortable to drive. I really like the feel of the driver’s seat and the steering wheel. The passenger seat was just as comfortable. The backseat was a little tight but it was still comfortable and it was expected to be tight being a jeep. One of the major differences of this car was there was no navigation system.   Lena R. This week at Royal Auto we test-drove the 2015 Jeep Renegade Sport. This was my first time driving anything bigger than a sedan and I have to say it was quite an … [Read more...]

2013 Hyundai Veloster

2013-Hyundai-Veloster

Emily S. The 2013 Hyundai Veloster was an interesting car. It only has 3 doors, the two front and one in the back on the passenger side. The back seats were also very small and cramped. This car was basically made for small people, not in a bad way, but if you are 6 feet tall there’s no way you are going to be comfortable in the back seat. The front wasn’t as bad. It was comfortable. My favorite part of this car was the steering wheel. It was the perfect size and had the perfect grip. This is our first car we have driven without a review camera that comes up when you put the car in reverse. I had suddenly began to enjoy that feature in the other car like the Hyundai Sonata. I find that feature very useful. This car also is very basic and not what you would call luxurious. Although it is … [Read more...]

2015 Chrysler 200S

2015-Chrysler-200-S

Lena R. Test-driving the 2015 Chrysler 200S was a memorable experience. I was surprised at how smooth it drove and how quickly it could accelerate. Besides the driving, the car itself was incredible; it isequipped with various nifty features, like a rear view mirror dimmer that lessens the glare at night from the lights of other drivers, spacious hidden compartments, and a touchscreen. At first all the buttons seem a little intimidating, but it’s nothing an afternoon getting acquainted with all of its bells and whistles won’t fix. My favorite feature was the heated seats and heated steering wheel, making me almost wish that it was cold enough outside for me to use the heated seats feature for an extended period of time. The one thing that would have added icing to the cake is a … [Read more...]

2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T

2015-Hyundai-Sonata-Sport

Adam W. This week at Royal Auto we drove the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T. When I first began to drive, the gas and break seemed to be sensitive; however, it was very easy to get used to. I really enjoyed the seating in the front. They were super comfortable, they felt almost as if they were hugging you when you sat back into them. I wasn’t a huge fan of the steering wheel. It was oddly shaped, and it didn’t fall through my hands smoothly when I was to make sharper turns. When I was able to experience the back of the vehicle, my first thought was there is so much room! You wouldn’t expect there to be that much room by just looking at it from the outside. I would love to ride in this car as a backseat passenger because there is enough room to kick back, relax and enjoy the ride. All in … [Read more...]

2015 Hyundai Elantra ES

2015-Hyundai-Elantra-ES

Emily S. I really liked the feel of this car. It drove really smoothly and it was really comfortable. I also like the price of it, currently $99 a month for a 24-month lease. It’s a great deal for a simple car. It is simple but also has the extra stuff like Bluetooth, rear view camera, and buttons on the steering wheel. The gas mileage is really good as well. Adam had said in our video it’s a college feel, not really knowing what he meant but I would say it kind of is because it’s affordable, it has the extra things that our age group wants, and it looks pretty nice from the outside. This would definitely be a car I would consider leasing, especially with the price. It fills all of my checks that I look for in a car. This also is our first car we are experimenting with so there is not … [Read more...]
