We kick off the 98th episode of "Talking Cars With Consumer Reports" by discussing two new luxury two-row SUVs: the Buick Envision and the Jaguar F-Pace. Both compete in a crowded segment, taking on established vehicles such as the Audi Q5 and BMW X3, as well as the all-new Cadillac XT5 and Mercedes-Benz GLC. In the flat, globalized world we live in today, the all-American Envision is actually built by General Motors in China, and imported to the U.S. And while the Jaguar is built in the United Kingdom, the venerable British brand is owned by an Indian firm, Tata Motors. 

Gabe Shenhar, Jon Linkov, and Mark Rechtin discuss the Buick Envision, Jaguar F-Pace, and More

We then turn our attention to viewer questions. Our panel goes into greater detail about the positives and negatives of the Chevrolet Volt. And we wrap up the show by discussing Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system and the mid-cycle refresh of the Ford Fusion sedan, and any plans to add it to our test program.
