This week we share our test results of the 2020 Audi Q3. We also talk about Ford's new Co-Pilot360 and the active drive assist feature, and discuss how it compares to Tesla's Autopilot and Cadillac's Super Cruise. Also, we answer audience questions about the best way to purchase a vehicle at the end of a lease, if covering a car in rhinestones is a good idea, and choosing a first car for a 17-year-old 'car addict' under 20K.

If it sells, it doesn’t matter if you get it. There are a ton in this class and size and yes, they sell.
most high end auto detailers used compressed air to blow dirt, dust, and debris out from under seats and out from nook and creases … works amazing.
You guys should do a segment were you tell what your personal vehicles are too many reviews on them and why you have those specific vehicles
Q3s biggest competitor is the Q5 which can be cheaper since they discount them more, not much bigger and on a better platform. I’d wait for the 2021 Q5 update though.
I also use blower to clean out the car. and Car decorations, I say go for it. Stop being old…..!
How did you feel about the ride quality on the Q3? I found that the car never really stopped bouncing around on the spec with the 20 inch wheels that I Drove
I have a concern with respect to blowing fine-grain dirt to any delicate mechanism.
This episode really was a wild trip!
Keith Barry has friends? Why would anyone spend more than a minute with this condescending, obnoxious know it all? I fast forward to get past all his bluster and then listen to the others.
I love Emily! She’s so funny
For the gentleman that wants a rhinestone encrusted Prius – why not get the car professionally wrapped in vinyl? It’s long lasting and can be removed. And if you ask for custom “rhinestone encrusted” design they probably won’t laugh (too much).
Funny episode and funny questions not touching most of your readers
Man, the middle guy looks like AL from tool time.
new intro music is meh.
I’m sorry, this was the least informative show you guys have done. Last show people are asking why their questions are not answered in the comments section. Now I know why, you guys have gone off the rails.
Hey, look…it’s Quincy Adams!
Yeah, I was going to say wrap when I heard the question.
Can you imagine how much rhinestones and glue weigh? And the air resistance? It would probably bring the mileage down to that of a big V-8. And be slooow.
Man, it continues to be such a bummer that Super Cruise is only on the CT6. Cadillac has totally blown their lead by not putting that amazing technology in their entire lineup. Also I’m pretty sure the 12V battery is not a limiting factor for self driving cars.
