This week, we share our first impressions of the 2022 Subaru BRZ. We discuss the BRZ's performance and handling capabilities, and how it's fun-to-drive character rivals sports cars like the Chevrolet Corvette. We also talk about General Motors' new driver assistance system, Ultra Cruise, which will debut on some 2023 Cadillacs. And, we answer audience questions about CR's fuel economy score for hybrid vehicles; whether panoramic sunroofs are safe in a rollover crash; and what buying strategies to use when new car inventory is low.
