Talking Cars 211: Audi E-Tron and the Legacy of an Automotive Icon

Mike Quincy

Consumer Reports has no financial relationship with advertisers on this site.

Main theme: We look back on the automotive hits (and misses) of legendary Detroit automotive executive Lee Iacocca, who died earlier this month. Drawing from the CR archives, we talk about the highs and lows from our tests of the 1964½ Ford Mustang, 1971 Ford Pinto, 1984 Plymouth Voyager, and 1992 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Plus, we add some of our own experiences of riding in—or driving—these cars.

Driven this week: 2019 Audi E-Tron
