For the 2019 Harris-McGuinness-Flintoff series, the traditional featured Stig's "How fast is the car around our track" sequence was moved over to online only, freeing up a few more minutes of screen-time on the main show, at least in the original BBC Two edit. See more »

The Megane, a family car, but only if your family is the Osbournes. And the Avantime, it is a sporty coupe but only if you don't want a car of that sporty or a coupe.

Top Gear reruns on the UKTV Network (including the Dave channel) have approximately one quarter of the episodes cut out to make room for adverts. They also cut out most un-PC jokes and BBC references. See more »
If you like cars, then this programme is just simply amazing. Unlike most programmes that are in this genre, the programme has survived a beyond 20 years at the top, and not many programmes come close. 5th Gear on five does come close, but it just doesn't have the heart or the dedication that Top Gear does.
While the people on 5th Gear only talk about cars, the Top Gear crew talk about everything that is to do with cars, and not just the cars themselves. For example, they have "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" where a celebrity goes round their track to see how fast they are. And once, they decided to test the Toyota Pickup's claim of being the "the toughest car on the road" by basically ramming it into stuff, and putting it on a building that got demolished etc. and it still actually run. They also once tested if you can run your diesel car off of Vegetable Oil (you can, although your exhaust smells like a bag of chips).
Overall, this programme's great and a show you must fit into your weekly schedule, gets 10/10
