Text: Matt Bubbers. “Driving the most luxurious plug-in hybrid, as pandemic helps Bentley turn fortunes around.” The Globe and Mail. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/drive/reviews/article-driving-the-most-luxurious-plug-in-hybrid-as-pandemic-helps-bentley/

Before analyzing the text make sure to have a look at the following page for a better understanding of how to use the text to help you with your assessments: https://language-literature.com/sample-text-analysis-blog-posts/

Some elements of this text to consider:

  • The photos are a quite common feature of reviews and are a necessary complement to the descriptive text
  • Obviously only a tiny fraction of readers would seriously consider buying a Bentley but the audience for the article is broader than just potential buyers
  • Unlike some other car reviews, this one includes a fair bit of information about Bentley’s overall sales / business situation. This car review does not actually discuss the specifics of the car until quite late into the text.
