In a short clip posted on The Grand Tours youtube channel, the ex Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May discuss what are some cars that they all hate and which is the one they can agree to love.
The cars they all hate are: Nissan Juke, VW Beetle, Nissan Qashqai, Audi Q5, Land Rover Discovery, BMW X3 and the MINI Countryman.
Do you see a common theme? They basically hate many of the modern and completely useless SUV’s. We talked about this before on lifeonfour and we are not surprised, check out our article: Do you need an SUV?
The one car they all love however is the first generation 1998 Ford Mondeo ST200 estate or wagon if you want. Sporting a 2.5l V6 with 205 horsepower it was the best family sports cars 20 years ago. It also had hardened suspension, great V6 sound and proper Recaro sport seats. It also handled nicely while remaining civil enough to be used everyday. A surprising choice and quite a rare car, especially the wagon. They love how practical, comfortable and solid it still feels after all these years. An interesting choice, certainly not the one i would expect.
Expect the prices for old Ford Mondeo ST200 to skyrocket!
