Talking Cars (MP3)

New to our test fleet this week is the 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid we purchased for testing at our track. With the same hybrid system as the Prius, and built on the same platform as the well-performing Corolla Hatchback, is Toyota's new offering the best of both worlds? We also discuss IIHS' latest study on speeding's role in fatal auto accidents, and answer audience questions, including the difference between summer and all-season tires, and whether modern HID and LED headlights cause too much glare for oncoming drivers.
