Best moments from Top Gear that we’re still talking about

Clarkson, Hammond and May’s motoring magazine show is quirky, funny and even sometimes controversial. And while we all have our favourite moments, the epic scene that we will never forget, we decided to list 5 of our all-time favourites.

Johannesburg - The first-generation Q5 was the most successful SUV to date. In 2017 alone, 1.9 million Q5s were sold globally. Audi proudly takes the credit for forming this ‘B-SUV segment’, and currently stands at the top of the global sales podium.
 
We’ve become so accustomed to Audi’s recent design language that we’re actually missing how much it has changed from the outgoing model. The new car is more sleek and edgy, whereas the older model had much more rounded curves.

'Huge changes'

Despite its more sculpted looks, the new Q5 is actually a little bigger, but has lost ninety kilograms of heft – however, you can steel feel its weight in the handling.
 
From a technological perspective, the changes are huge. The tech in the new Q5 is at another level, especially the driver assistance systems. Audi’s optional 12.3-inch virtual cockpit and MMI Navigation system are especially impressive. 
 
Despite being ultra-advanced, we can’t help feeling that it lacks a bit of character. But that’s just us.

The new Q5 is already proving to be very popular and is also a 2018 WesBank South African Car of the Year finalist.
