Back to ho-hum. Jonny's drag race kept me mildly interested, but overall a bit of a yawn. I'd rather watch and listen to James May drive a military vehicle, explaining some of the more interesting features, rather than VBH's gasping about how SHE feels driving around in the dark 'off-road' - although a bit steep in places, it looked like well defined dirt roads to me.

The 'cheaper option' section, where one of the team picks 3 alternatives to the new car under review, often has some odd choices. However, this time it seemed even odder than usual in that both TN and JP kept mentioning the BMW 5 series as the Maserati diesel's main competition, yet they choose an older Alpha, Citroen and a Jag XF as affordable Maserati diesel alternatives. Seems a shame not to have included an older BMW 5 series diesel after it copped so many mentions ... :hmm:

Their cheap skate alternatives might be cheap to buy, but a lot of the time they certainly wouldn't be cheap to maintain and repair.
