Your (hopefully) favorite podcasting duo is back again this week talking all about (what else?) cars! First Benjamin describes his week in the subcompact 2022 Volkjswagen Taos, which is meant to fill a Golf-sized hole in the German automakers lineup. While it looks small, it actually seems to have a ton of space, and features pretty solid fuel economy, but how does it drive? Benjamin bares all (about the Taos, that is.)
Then the pair discuss all the latest automotive news, including sad-inducing info about the next generation Subaru WRX STI and Acura Integra, before Sami gets a taste of his own This-or-That medicine, Benjamin-style. Listen to it all right here, and don't forget to subscribe and contact us!

Benjamin isn't done with sporty compacts, as this week he gets hands-on with the redesigned 2022 Volkswagen Golf R. Despite more power and updated exterior styling, hear why he has some harsh words for VW and its enthusiast car. Sami chimes in with his thoughts on the Subaru Ascent, which was a successful re-entry into the world of three-row crossovers, but now feels a bit basic in some ways.
Finally, Sami and Benjamin get nostalgic thinking of all the 'utes we used to have, and how they all left us for more lucrative parts of the world. Listen, review, and reach out to us through our website UnnamedAutomotivePodcast.com
