Review

If I tell you caravans are involved in tonight’s programme, you’ll know what to expect: fires, crashes, rolls, splintering of bodywork and naughty-schoolboy looks all round. The presenters are investigating “crossover” hatchbacks – those tall sort-of-SUVs that are growing in popularity because, the team reasons, they are handy for towing. But mocking caravans and their owners is such a well-worn theme of the series it’s hard to see how they’ll inject it with new life.

Meanwhile, Richard Hammond has the time of his life in a £2 million Lamborghini, and Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler is the rock star in the Reasonably Priced Car.

Summary

Jeremy Clarkson and James May take a look at increasingly popular tall hatchbacks known as crossovers. Having concluded their primary appeal is to caravanners, the duo spend a couple of days in models by Mazda and Volkswagen and try to get a feel for what life is like for the people they believe would buy one. Meanwhile, Richard Hammond drives a pair of exciting Lamborghinis in Italy - the ferocious Aventador Roadster and the limited-edition Sesto Elemento, which carries an eye-watering price tag of around £2million. Two cars are also put through their paces on the test track, with James in a modern re-creation of the classic Porsche 911 and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler in the rather less exotic Reasonably Priced Car.
