Self-Driving Cars, 2020 BMW 8-Series

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing Nissan’s plans to revamp its Infiniti luxury division as part of the company’s broader restructuring process. Next, we talk about our test-drive experiences with BMW’s 8-Series family of cars. Kelsey Mays, Senior Consumer Affairs Editor at, calls in to discuss the current state of self-driving vehicles and the semi-autonomous technologies available on 2020-model-year vehicles. Tom has an Infiniti-themed quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a overview of the vehicles of the “Hogan’s Heroes” TV show.
