Like old Top Gear, the new one with the hosts that don't punch you in the face is all about supercars, high-octane, adrenaline-packed action. Despite decades of doing this, people are still writing in, asking for consumer advice.
Of course, the Top Gear website has reviews for everything, but you wouldn't expect their new A-lister Chris Harris to know anything about the boring stuff. The only thing that's fast in this video is the rate at which the cars are presented.

Starting with the city car segment, Harris quickly dismisses the i10 for not being as good as other Hyundais, the Twingo for having annoying traction control and the Yaris for being cheap. The best car here is, according to him, the VW Up!.

The Germans don't score a victory in the segment above, where the Ford Fiesta is crowned the best supermini you can buy. What about the Clio? Don't argue with this man; he owns Porsches.

Small SUVs are disgusting, according to Harris, who spits at the sight of the VW Tiguan, Opel Mokka, Nissan Qashqai and Ford Kuga. The presenter uses strong language to describe all of them and says he'd rather have a VW Golf.

According to him, you can forget that the Peugeot 308, Astra and A-Class even exist because the Golf does everything better. That could be controversial, but so is the fact that the C-Class is better than the 3 Series and Audi A4 and Alfa Giulia. Careful Chris, riots have been started for less.

The Hyundai Santa Fe is cheap, but you shouldn't buy one; the Land Rover Discovery is super-ugly, and the BMW X5 is styled like a police car. So you want the Volvo XC90.

Lastly, when it comes to larger executive cars, Harris would probably have a normal BMW 5 Series over the Mercedes E-Class. On the other hand, owning an E63 is better than the M5.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
