Benjamin drives the 2021 Aston Martin DBX and explains why the British brand's first ever SUV actually seems to make sense. Sami and Benjamin then discuss who the 2021 Audi RS 6 Avant is built for, and why a super-wagon alternative to the crossover craze is a much-needed antidote on the modern market. Finally, the pair answer a listener question ab…
 
The 2022 Ford Maverick compact pickup has gone public, and Benjamin and Sami each dig in to the details of this front-wheel drive hybrid mini-truck. Benjamin then discusses his surprising affinity for the 2021 Lincoln Navigator, claiming it's at least the equal of several more expensive full-size luxury SUVs, followed by Sami's comparison of the wi…
 
The 2021 Kia Carnival is an all-new minivan that tries to bridge the gap between comfortable family cruiser and legitimate luxury vehicle, depending on how much money you want to spend. Sami sets it up against the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica to see how well it pulls off its fancy dance. Benjamin returns to an old favorite, the 2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI, …
 
The 2021 Polestar 2 is the first all-electric luxury car from Volvo's boutique brand. Benjamin gets his neck snapped in two by its instant-on torque so he can talk about head bobbles, underwhelming interiors, and the chances that Polestar can lure away Tesla buyers. Sami then takes a historical detour into the SUVs of GMC's past with the 2021 Terra…
 
Sami and Benjamin welcome back friend of the show Chad Kirchner from EV Pulse to talk about the site's new Learn EV feature, and then the trio rip into the over-the-top details of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe and the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning EV pickup—two ridiculously powerful vehicles from very different sides of the tracks. Links: EV Pul…
 
Is the 2021 Mazda CX-9 a stealth luxury SUV at a much more affordable price? Benjamin certainly seems to think so, especially after trading in the Acura MDX in favor of the older, yet somehow better Mazda design. Sami also works out a comparison between two SUVs: the 2021 Toyota Highlander and the newer 2021 Kia Telluride challenger, and discovers …
 
Benjamin offers a counterpoint to Sami's past drive of the 2022 Acura MDX SUV by asking why anyone would pick this particularly hauler over any other premium crossover. Sami loves the look and feel of the 2021 Kia K5 GT-Line AWD but questions just how well its drivetrain stands up to direct competitors like the Toyota Camry. The pair wrap things up…
 
The 2021 BMW M5 Competition might be the perfect luxury sedan, if crushing power and four-door track performance are your thing. Benjamin argues that as impressive as the car is, 90 percent of buyers would be just as well served by the also-fantastic BMW M550i xDrive. Sami dives into the 2021 Infiniti QX55 SUV, and while he loves the looks inside a…
 
Is the 2021 Ford Ranger Tremor a hardcore off-roader that can keep up with the Tacoma TRD Pro and the Colorado ZR2? Benjamin heads into the mud to get the answers. Meanwhile, Sami spends time with the all-new 2021 Nissan Kicks SUV to see if it's still his favorite affordable hauler (even if the next-generation price tag is a little bigger than befo…
 
The Hellcat truck is finally here, and Benjamin gets to bounce around off-road in the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX while flexing its mud-covered 702 horsepower all over Montreal. So why isn't he super excited about the most over-the-top pickup truck ever built? Sami tracks down shooting stars in the headliner of the 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost while expressing his…
 
Is the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander a carbon-copy of its Nissan Rogue platform-mate, or does it stand as a legitimate alternative despite all of its shared bits and pieces? Sami is pleasantly surprised by Mitsubishi's latest small SUV. Benjamin goes road-tripping in the 2021 Genesis G80 sedan, and discovers that good things still come in sedan package…
 
Sami questions Benjamin's sanity as he develops more-than-like feelings for the 2021 Lexus IS 300 AWD, an entry-level luxury sedan that his co-host had previously decried as a missed opportunity for the brand. The pair then attempt to answer the question of whether Cadillac's new Super Cruise assisted driving system is even worth having in the 2021…
 
Benjamin finally spends time with the 2021 Genesis GV80, a vehicle poised to put other luxury SUVs on notice as the Korean brand colonizes its most important segment to date. Things go completely off the rails, however, when Sami reveals that the upcomign 2022 Genesis GV70 SUV and refreshed G70 sedan come with an in-car radar system to spy on the b…
 
The 2021 Volvo S60 T5 is a premium sedan in a world gone over almost completely to crossovers, and Sami and Benjamin get deep with just how surprising its past decade has been for a brand that few would have thought would still be in the luxury conversation so many years later. Benjamin then startles Sami by singing the praises of the 2021 Lexus RX…
 
The 2021 Nissan Sentra tries harder than it has in the past 10 years to win the hearts and minds of compact car shoppers, but Sami tried to figure out if it's done enough to blow past very good rivals like the Toyota Corolla and the Hyundai Elantra. Benjamin is puzzled by the 2021 Acura TLX A-Spec, a sport sedan that doesn't seem to fit in to the t…
 
We speak with guest Bradley Brownell who brings us the latest on the Radwood car show series, the new 80s/90s online automotive auction site Rad4Sale, and his plans for an all-new series of EV-focused car shows called Autopia 2099 that will debut later in 2021. We also get in deep with his dual-engine Porsche Boxster hybrid track car, which is just…
 
Benjamin's wait is finally over as the 2021 Toyota Supra 3.0 arrives in his driveway just in time for a deep freeze and a snowy blizzard. That doesn't stop him from taking it up into the mountains and putting it through its paces so he can finally form his own opinion after all of the hype. Sami spends his week with the 2021 Cadillac CT4 to try and…
 
Does the 2022 Acura MDX go far enough to push past the excellent crop of mid-size SUVs out there, or does it settle for more of what returning Acura customers are looking for? Sami spends a week behind the wheel to find out. Benjamin ends up puzzled by the 2021 Toyota Venza, a vehicle that should feel like its RAV4 Hybrid platform-mate but comes ac…
 
The 2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge is the Swedish brand's very first all-electric vehicle, and the most powerful version of the XC40 SUV to date. Benjamin dives in to the good and the bad about driving this high-end EV during winter's bitter cold, and compares it against the much cheaper 2021 Kia Soul EV's performance under the same conditions. Sami give…
 
Benjamin and Sami hit you with a Lightning Round bonus episode talking about this week's massive new car drop, including the Subaru Wilderness Brand, 2021 Chevrolet Bolt, 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander, 2022 Audi e-tron GT, 2021 Kia K8, 2021 Honda HR-V Hybrid, 2021 Porsche 911 GT3, and the McLaren Hybrid Supercar…
 
The 2021 Chevrolet Blazer RS resurrects a name that at first feels laden with SUV heritage, but as Benjamin points out isn't all fun and two-door off-roading games. Sami's time behind the Blazer's wheel reveals mixed feelings about why GM didn't go all the way in making the family ride live up to its potential. Benjamin then discusses his week-long…
 
Did you know Subaru built a flat-12 engine for its forgotten Formula 1 racing program in the early 90s? More on that at the end of the episode, because first Benjamin has to shake out his ambivalence at the 2021 Kia K5 GT-Line AWD and its ho-hum drivetrain, and Sami needs to wax ecstatic about the (finally) redesigned 2022 Nissan Frontier mid-size …
