Even Clarkson praised it as one of the most comfy cars he's ever tested, and that's from another mature racer.

It's up on their YouTube channel now. To be honest it wasn't as bad as some people made it sound. Still 7-7.5 out of 10 they rated it which is decent.
Jason potato is playing a bit of a character in this it seems. Comes across as a bit of a bell at times.
And it made sense they decreed it would be better as a phev, because this show is called recharge, so it has an emphasis on electric vehicles from the start. It wouldn't fit their brand if they said it was better than a phev. And it's not, its just different. But I did think her saying a hybrid feels old fashioned is a bit short sighted. This car has to suit the whole world market, not just central London.

Just watched Fifth Gear Recharged review the Ford Kuga hybrid

Odd how both Plato and Butler Henderson don't have any issues with it being a petrol hybrid this time considering their complaints about the Civic

Maybe the brown envelopes from Ford were bigger

There was no real helpful content just a load of idiots trying to put down what is essentially a good car! Id prefer full hybrid to plug in as you dont need to be faffing about plugging and unplugging in the pouring rain if your in a rush to get somewhere!
Im sure electric fanboys would say different!! 馃槀馃槀

Plus, the additional deadweight of a bigger battery that does nothing when the car is running with the engine. So much for "fuel economy".

Sooner the tree-hugging lunatics and their green agenda is thrown in the bin, the quicker we can get back to driving cars without added baggage. These eco-clowns should go to China/India/Brazil/Russia and other polluting nations and see how they fare with their green diktats there....

I just view 5th Gear Recharged like I did the normal programme, a comedy about cars.

Bring back Top Gear when Goffey, Wilson and co did it and tested real world cars that the average man in the street could afford to buy.

The VXR? Yea they pulled the fuse on the TC so it understeered like no ones business. Back then it was well known he was a Ford man. He had an Escort Cossie and got an Allocation for the Ford GT, bet he wish he'd kept that now. So many cops all said that, although they never got the VXR, the Police version with the 2.8T was the best car they used in the Noughties.

I made a decision years ago never to join TwitFace they are both dominated by too many out for disruption.

I don't see the point of antagonistic posts. Why can't people see others point of view instead of attacking them ?
