Why is it jiny and not jene? I thought auto was neutral.

Look above, it says: jiné auto

Auto is neutral, but automobil is masculine (and so are many other other -il ending words comming from Latin -ilis).

Why is další auto incorrect? Shouldn't that work as well?

Nope, different is "jiný", or also "odlišný", but not "další".

On the other hand, "(an-)other" may be "jiný" or "další", while "next" is "další" or "příští". These words don't map 1:1 between English and Czech, but "different" cannot be "další".
