published 2 weeks ago by Consumer Reports

This week we give our first impressions on the all-new 2019 Volkswagen Arteon, and discuss the evolution of this hatchback sedan. Then, our experts each select a car on the market today that they think will become a classic show car in the future. Also, we dip into the mailbag to answer audience questions, including why you should not try to test automatic emergency braking at home, if low-profile tires serve any function on a pickup truck, and if the BMW-powered Toyota Supra will maintain Toyota’s reputation for excellent reliability.     ----------------------------------- Have a question for our experts?
