While our hosts can sometimes be a bit nit-picky, this week's episode brings real criticism to a pair of disappointing 2022 models. First Sami discusses the 2022 Volvo XC60 B6, which gets a fresh infotainment system, new electrical system and a weird naming scheme for its motors. Then Benjamin gets in the 2022 Toyota Prius Prime, a plug-in version of everyone's favorite hybrid. Despite the not quite freezing temperatures, Benjamin's feeling cold as ICE towards the Japanese PHEV, and has plenty of reasons to be upset. Listen here!

Benjamin is pleasantly surprised by the tiny-yet-huge-inside 2018 Honda Fit Sport, while Sami tries to think of sports the Fit Sport would fail at while recounting his experiences with the Kia Niro Hybrid. The pair then argue about how sad the leaked specs for the upcoming Toyota Supra truly are, and whether the once-proud sports car is about to be re-born as an also-ran. Finally, Benjamin tells an off-color story about Korean serial killers from the time he traveled to Seoul to drive a prototype version of the Niro.
