#163 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback; IIHS' Tesla Advanced Safety Data; How Do We Buy Cars Anonymously?

published 6 months ago by Consumer Reports

This week, we discuss data from IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) regarding advanced safety technology, and whether semi-autonomous equipped cars are providing a safety benefit to drivers. We just bought a 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback to join our testing program, and we give our initial impressions, and whether Toyota can convince buyers that a Corolla can be sporty! We also answer audience questions about a replacement for a Nissan Altima, modern convertible reliability, and how we can buy cars anonymously after all these years. ----------------------------------- Have a question for our experts?
