Hyundai Smart Park, 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio

Episode: 24

Broadcast date: April 12, 2020

Guest: Mike Evanoff

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing the trend of insurance companies issuing discounts to their auto-insurance policyholders, since many of those customers are driving their vehicles far less as a result of COVID-19 lockdowns. Next, we talk about our test-drive experiences with the racy Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio crossover SUV, which has been freshened for 2020. Mike Evanoff, Manager of Product Planning for Hyundai Motor America, calls in to discuss Hyundai’s latest products and novel new technology features, including Smart Park and Digital Key Access.Tom has a tricky option-pricing quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–such as a list of helpful tips on maintaining your vehicle during the coronavirus shutdown.
