Saying that “autonomous cars are coming” is basically a cliche at this point, but it’s true. Even more true, however, is that semi-autonomous cars are already here. They can drive themselves, sort of. It’s a wonderful party trick to be sure, but which semi-autonomous car should you buy? Watch us argue, disagree, and generally be delightfully witty and charming.

Or ingratiating and annoying – either way, you decide! That’s the joy of What Car Should You Buy? Last time we talked about the joys of driving a track-ready muscle car, but this week, we’ve got cars like the Volvo XC90, the Tesla Model S, and the Mercedes S-Class. All of them can drive themselves (sort of, sometimes!) and all can be bought today, if you have a lot of money.

Watch this, and then tell us—which would you buy?
