CR has about five staff members who do the podcasts, and they all participate directly in testing. Most have management responsibilities, and they’re all car enthusiasts. On camera, they seem to offer personal opinions more than hard-core reviews, like the way they trashed the Polestar 2 in a previous episode. Their complaints about the ID.4 are similar to other sites, but I‘m disappointed their discussion wasn’t more balanced. I often learn from CR, but my go-to reviewer is Alex on Autos.
