    Special Edition -Genesis G70 Shooting Brake Review

    Special Edition -Genesis G70 Shooting Brake Review

    Andrew had a Genesis G70 Shooting Brake for a week, to see what the latest company trying to crack the premium market can do. Listen in to explain to Alan what it was like, who the car is really for and how well all the aspects of ownership have been thought through. Less suspense in this one, we are afraid, as Andrew’s enthusiasm is not really kept in check.

A weekly staple

Always a great listen, a brilliant mix of chat, information and news. A solid 4/5, but bumped to a 5/5 because they talked about me nicely in a recent episode 😂

Best weekly auto podcast

I’ve listened to Alan and Andrew for a couple of years now. A delightful weekly update that offers sensible insight to things going on in the motoring world.
