Happy Saturday, Roadshow readers. I’m here to take you on another wonderful journey we call the week in review around these parts. Because we like to make sure you never miss the best of the week that was.
There was a lot this week, at that. We drove the new Nissan Rogue and got a better look at Amazon’s super cool, Rivian-built electric delivery van. Plus much more.
Grab your morning beverage, or afternoon snack if you slept in, and have a look at the best of the week from Oct. 4-10.
There’s a new Nissan in town, and it happens to be the brand’s best-selling model. Managing Editor Steve Ewing drove the 2021 Nissan Rogue to see if it can make a splash in the very crowded, and very competitive, compact SUV segment. We learned Nissan played its cards straight down the middle.
2021 Volkswagen ID 4 aims to electrify America later this year
Ewing also got behind the wheel of another SUV, but something much different. He drove the 2021 Volkswagen ID 4, which is the brand’s first electric car for the US. The takeaway? It’s a likable thing and it could sway more Americans to electric cars.
Reviews Editor Andrew Krok got behind the wheel of the 2021 Toyota Supra, which boasts some new updates to make the sports car more fun, in Krok’s words. In fact, he thinks those that bought the 2020 model got the shaft because the new Supra is that much better.
And now for something much different. Reviews Editor Craig Cole took a whack at the 2020 Ford Transit and found it to be shockingly comfortable with boatloads of versatility.
