They probably heard that Jeremy takes Tiff's reviews seriously and figured someone actually needed to test drive cars for real.

I don't think so. I think it's the last season, at least in the current format. The cancellation is a) official and b) came at a point when the next season clearly had wrapped shooting.

I do hope that you are incorrect, I like Fifth Gear.

I hope i'm wrong,too - but Five would not put a notice saying it's cancelled on their page if it would not be.

True, but it does share the Monday night 20:00hrs spot with the gadget show which is the same demographic. What are they putting there instead?

Five's website still says that the show is cancelled. ITV4, Dave, Sky One or Bravo would seem to be the mostly likely places for the show to move to.
