The Shunk, Nunez, Abuelsamid and Roth quartet reconvene for Episode #168 of the Autoblog Podcast with the Geneva Motor Show now underway. Our first order of business is a stop at the Autoblog Garage, occupied this week by the Suzuki Kizashi, Kia Sorento, BMW 750Li, and Cadillac SRX. Anticipating the massive auto show that's just about to start, we dive right in. Starting us off is the awesome electric-green Lamborghini 570-4 Superleggera. Jumping from Italian exotics to the ultimate SUV, we talk about the 2011 Porsche Cayenne before segueing cleanly into a discussion of the crack-pipe pricing for the Volkswagen Touareg hybrid. Before we leave the VW/Porsche sphere, we talk about how insanely cool the Porsche 918 Spyder concept car is. The Ford Focus station wagon is one of those things we'll see in Geneva, but likely not in the U.S., while the Lexus CT200h is making its way to the shores of North America. BMW's 5 Series Active Hybrid Concept keeps up the cavalcade of alternative propulsion by the big Swiss lake, and it's our last topic before calling it a night. Thanks for listening!

      Hey Guys, show 168 isn't showing up in iTunes. The Car Tech guys are having the same problem. Hopefully it gets sorted out soon.

      You guys in the podcast made comments about driving habits, and 70 mpg in a 1st gen prius.

      I bet I drive more conservatively than the standard route used to measure MPG for cars.
      And even going speed limit or below, and slow take-offs and stops, a normal person cannot get 70 mpg in the first generation prius. At least from my experience. I have averaged just under 50 mpg. Some tanks 53, some 43. Mostly, just under 50 mpg over the course of my ownership. I suspect it got better FE when new, though. I am 3rd owner.

      And I USED TO DRIVE over 100 mph each and every day. (in a 4 cyl THREE SPEED Caravan no less). So, it's just a new choice for me. 180 degree about face.

      Just a datum point. Just anecdotal. Just me.
