Main theme: We dedicated the entire episode of this podcast to talking about the much-anticipated Model Y. The all-new SUV (or is it a hatchback?) is based on the Model 3 sedan, and therefore shares many components. The two Teslas also share the same positive and negative qualities, though the Model Y is an improvement in some ways.

The panel discusses:
• The version we bought
• What the move to an SUV/hatchback body style has made better and worse
• The new advanced driver assistance and safety systems
• And . . . what it's like to drive it!

Talking Cars panelists Jake Fisher, Jon Linkov, and Mike Monticello
