Does the 2022 Acura MDX go far enough to push past the excellent crop of mid-size SUVs out there, or does it settle for more of what returning Acura customers are looking for? Sami spends a week behind the wheel to find out. Benjamin ends up puzzled by the 2021 Toyota Venza, a vehicle that should feel like its RAV4 Hybrid platform-mate but comes across with a radically different character. The pair wrap things up with a review of a fascinating reference book about the Honda S2000, as well as answer a listener question about what would be a good, fun, and affordable first car.
- The Book of The Honda S2000 — Author and historian Brian Long has created the definitive history of the Honda S2000, 'sister' car to the legendary Acura NSX. With a 9000rpm redline, bullet-quick gear changes, space-age digital dash, and Honda’s legendary built quality – not to mention appearances in games such as Grand Theft Auto – the S2000 was a hot ticket, and a car that’s just as sought-after today as during its 10 year production run.
