To beat the recession, the trio take to the streets of London in three small cars that they hate and that bankers will be forced to use – the Proton Satria Neo, the Chevrolet Aveo, and the Perodua Myvi – before heading to the track with three small cars they like – the Škoda Roomster for Clarkson, the Alfa Romeo MiTo for Hammond, and the Toyota iQ for May – and testing them on a challenge devised by each presenter. Meanwhile, Clarkson tests out the new face-lifted Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series, May meets professional American stunt driver Ken Block and gets taken for a ride around Ken’s own gymkhana and his tuned Subaru Impreza and a race with motocross legend Ricky Carmichael, and comedian Michael McIntyre steps into the reasonably priced car.
