#265 2021 Kia K5 and 2020 Porsche Taycan First Impressions

published 3 months ago by Consumer Reports

We spent time behind the wheel of the all-new 2021 Kia K5 sedan, and give our first impressions on the new styling, driving characteristics, comfort, and controls. Consumer Reports recently purchased the all-electric 2020 Porsche Taycan, and we talk about how this luxury EV stacks up against its main competitor, the Tesla Model S. We also talk about advancements in electric car battery technology, how to store a set of winter tires that only gets used a few times a year, and define what it means for a car to be "fun to drive."     -----------------------------------   Have a question for our experts?
