BMW enter the small hatchback market with the launch of their 1 series - James drives it and wonders why they bothered. James and Jeremy test cars from Asia and hate them all and Jeremy drives the Ariel Atom. The Mercedes G Wagen gets the AMG treatment and Richard gets to drive it. There's also a race (on Top Gear I hear you cry?) between Jeremy in a Fiesta ST and Richard in a Citroën C2VTS. Trinny Woodhall and Susannah Constantine are the Stars in a Reasonably Priced Car.
