Manage episode 332621935 series 2531573
The guys take two completely different paths this week on the Unnamed Automotive Podcast. First Sami goes the family friendly route with the 2022 Toyota Sienna. Available only as a hybrid, Sami starts off by describing a few of the vans shortcomings before diving into what makes this a smart entry in the world of three row vehicles.
Then Benjamin takes a walk on the wild side with the 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness, an all-new trim package that boasts several off road modifications, similar to last year's Outback Wilderness. He seems pretty impressed with the effort applied by Subaru but he eventually gets pulled into a conversation about who exactly this crossover is made for.
Finally the duo discuss an interview on The Verge with Ola Källenius, the CEO of Mercedes-Benz where the concepts of legacy and marketing collide in predictably awkward fashion.
