Top Gear is a British television series about motor vehicles, primarily cars, and is a relaunched version of the original 1977 show of the same name, airing since 2002, and becoming the most widely watched factual television programme in the world.Written by
From the beginning of the newly revamped series of Top Gear, the car that has been used in the "Star in a reasonably priced car" is a Suzuki Liana. This car has been used for seven seasons until season eight, when it was replaced by the (equally awful) Chevrolet Lacetti. The Liana returned in a new segment of the show in which F1 drivers took it for a spin, and also when the stig/Michael Schumacher took it around, jokingly smashing a large camera and tripod, and getting lost at the follow through.

Now the best gas guzzler of the year. And the nominations are: the Range Rover Sport which achieved eight miles to the gallon; the Bugatti Veyron which achieved four miles to the gallon; and Hemel Hempstead. That actually used up 60 million gallons of fuel and didn't move an inch.

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
