  • I don't see how Volvo can charge what the do for a 2 litre transverse 4. Yes, in T8 form with a turbo and supercharger, it is fairly powerful. But it's unrefined and iffy on long-term durability. I'd spend the extra dosh and get an E-Class, 5-Series or A6 estate.

  • If top gear wants to be successful, then get rid of Chris Harris. P.S. why in the estate car, you are obviously going to pick the Volvo because it is the most expensive: Vauxhall: 25,000 Volvo: 40,000 Škoda: 21000 Ford: 18,000 Shut up Chris Harris

  • How I agree with everything this man has to sat about cars. The Cullinan, he is right, but I do not find it ugly in the rear, like a tall RR Phantom . This video though, I agree 100%, but maybe I would take the Honda Civic, just because he drove it, he said it handles well, it drives well, it has clever ECU, but it is hideous. It couldn't be more 8y old Japanese boy design. The previous Civic- my Rowenta vacuum cleaner, bigger in scale, only the hole in the hood for the hose is missing. This one, a more modern vacuum cleaner, with some ugly exhaust and ugly all the way around, but I prefer driving capability 100hp more, than the public's opinion, so I would get it before the Golf GTI. If it was a Golf R, I think this is the fair comparison to make, the it is the golf R 1st. Always agree with his cars opinion and knowledge.
