Their mission was to find 'the ultimate driving road', not the ultimate driving car! So that's why they didn't focus too much on the cars... When creating amphibious cars, they didn't talk about how good/bad the Hilux/Camper van etc was, so why should they focus here on that?That was garbage. The least they could have done is review their cars a little bit.
Like s/o else once said: watching TG for consumer advice is like watching Allo Allo to learn about WW2.
