Wheelbase Media has helped newspapers make more than $94 million in advertising dollars with our cornerstone product. So, what are you waiting for? Rev up your automotive revenue with Preview 2019, a full suite of content to build your own fall new-vehicle guide or other custom publication. The base package provides the nuts and bolts: about 200 write-ups (about 250 words each, including pricing and specs) of the brand-new, heavily revised and popular vehicles available at dealerships for the 2019 model year. That’s Acura to Volvo (minus low-volume vehicles and exotics), with multiple photos of each vehicle. To create a full-on custom product, such as a 2019 new-vehicle guide, just add our expertly designed covers as well as our feature stories (samples below). We’ve thought of everything, including page flags and even small icons to showcase the brand-new vehicles for 2019.

Other uses include: Category guides (separate the content into SUV, luxury vehicles and trucks, for example, and building a rollover/multiple-insertion ad program); use throughout the year in your regular weekly auto pages.

Online use: Build a searchable database as a massive content repository for your website.

Note: For new-vehicle news throughout the year and not just the fall, sign up to our AutoXpress news service or our weekly features.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

STATUS: New for 2018 — The automaker that recently became part of the Renault-Nissan Alliance is launching a five-passenger tall wagon that uses a name originally assigned to a long-retired two-door coupe and convertible. The Eclipse Cross slots between the seven-passenger Outlander and the Outlander Sport, but the Eclipse Cross is equal to both in distance between the front and rear wheels. It also resembles the Sport in some ways except for a more modern front-end styling treatment that appears Lexus-inspired and an oddly positioned light bar at the rear that extends between the tail lamps, splitting the liftgate glass nearly in half. There’s also a nicely designed interior with a separate tablet-type touchscreen and an available head-up display. The split-folding rear seat adjusts fore and aft and also reclines. A console-positioned control pad operates the communications and audio systems that are displayed on the touchscreen. Available options include a panoramic glass roof, navigation system and premium audio package. A standard turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine makes 165 horsepower (estimated) and links to a continuously variable transmission. Front-wheel-drive is applied to base models, while all-wheel drive is available or standard with upper trim levels.
