SHOW NOTES:

1:05 – Emily makes an announcement

2:40 – Cleaning car seats during the COVID-19 outbreak

11:47 – 2021 Genesis G80 Digital Debut

19:50 – Send us your questions at TalkingCars@iColoud.com

20:04 – Video Question #1: Did the dealer bamboozle me into buying ethanol fuel treatment?

22:30 – Question #2: I was recently driving on Interstate 66 near Washington, D.C., on a night with great visibility, and was using my high beams. Suddenly an 8-point deer jumps in front of my car! The airbags go off, the hood wraps around the windshield, and my 2004 Infiniti is totaled. Would modern pre-collision braking or pedestrian detection have prevented this accident? Are these systems designed to respond to large animals in the same way they would respond to a person?

25:33 – Question #3: How frequently does IIHS test for existing model year automobiles? Some cars haven't been updated in years, and I wonder if manufacturers improve crash safety for existing models.

  1. I think the current G80 is the best looking car in its class, I saw the new one fully camouflaged in Dc a few months ago so I think it’s going to look really nice in person too.

    I’m on a suv kick so more excited about the GV80. Also, I believe the GV70 is in testing right now from what I’ve seen online.

    The G80 is one of those cars you can see James Bond or some badass villain driving it

    Genesis is a game changer.

  4. So impressed by Genesis. The G80 is beautiful inside and out. This will be my next car.

    12:20 past the car seats

  6. Audi?! I’ll choose the Genesis, because it’s not going to break down all the time. For the money it’s incredible and it’s incredible even if it was 10k more. To get everything on the BMW 5 series you get on the G80, the 5 Series would be 110k

  7. G80 would be perfect if it was a fastback.

  8. Thank you for another great episode! Your fans appreciate that you’re still making great new content.

  9. You folks have beautiful homes, CR!

  10. G70 needs more space (height)under front seats ,for your feet , when sitting in the back seats.

    Both the interior and exterior of the new G80 remind me of a 1949 Hudson Hornet and that’s a good thing.

  16. Congrats, Emily. Stay safe!

  17. Seems like Genesis has a whole family coming, get that test track ready. http://www.motor1.com/news/407745/genesis-six-car-lineup-teaser/
