  • I would rather see a Ferrari station wagon/shooting brake/estate car rather than a suv.

  • I know EVs are the future. I just want car compamies to make manual EVs. Like full on stick shift EVs. I dont know how they would do it, But the motor industry has done some amazing things and i know if they tried they could make one. That would be amazing.

  • G wagon is a 4wd, not an AWD/SUV. These high end AWD are actually people movers, they have no relationship with offroading, they are actually more like old coach built luxury cars in size, people want space and interior comfort.

  • I disagree with his argument against SUVs. If everyone had similar views we would all be driving low powered electric vehicles or something. Very hypocritical of him considering how unpractical supercars and hypercars are. He is very passionate about how stupid people are to buy them and contradicts himself by purchasing a Mercedes G wagon. I use to value his opinion, but I think his ego has grown since hosting Top Gear

  • I just don't like 95% of Ferrari's. They've completely lost their appeal to me. There's just too many models being released all the time and it's kinda diluted what made the brand great in the first place.

  • I love Chris Harris working man train of thought: "They are unnecessary cars" and so on. But I got a GLS AMG and I absolutely love the concept of 7 people doing 180mph (after de-restricting it, of course) in complete comfort. Isn't that a democratic concept, taking speed to the masses?

  • It is unimaginable how these SUV's took over the world. Besides the fact they are useless off road, useless in cities, they are also a "space crime". They are not safer in collisions (proved by Fifth Gear)they are absolutely rubbish. What perplexes me, is the amount of brain wash, the masses accept. This childish SUV trend begun just like all the non-senses, kendama, trap music, etc. The SUV is just another symbol of opulence and egocentrism, and have nothing to do with the driving experience or the love for cars.

  • The G wagon is the evolution of a military vehicle that Mercedes built decades ago; it became popular with civilians, so it was evolved, and, perhaps sadly, became the behemoth ultra-luxury stupid expensive Kardashian-mobile it is, but it wasn't created in the last few years to meet market demand for a family-mover type car like the Bentayga or Cullinan, etc... Though I have to say the Aston DBX is gorgeous, in my personal opinion. And if I had to tow a rally car and go to my place in the sticks I'd get big ol' pickup truck; but a Chris Harris-type (as in, across the pond), might not feel owning a Ford F-150 or Ram 1500 is appropriate, whereas a G wagon, well....

  • Whoever designed this setup must hate cameramen or just like to violate basic rules of how human beings' visual sense works... There is a very simple rule, which is that we will always be drawn to the brightest part of the frame and I guess the producer really wants us to look at a bright box that shows the name of the show insted of looking at Chris? As if the slightly less bright box also carrying the name of the show is not enough or the meter tall letters on the backdrop... So, five times in one frame we need to be reminded of which show we are watching. Desperate much? That said, of course, always a pleasure to hear him speak his unfiltered mind.

  • Dear Harris, I buy, bought and will buy SUVs for street use. Thousands of potholes, bumps and best view ; SUV gives that to me. But.. While I get in and enjoy my Nissan Qashqai, I do appreciate my SUV brand; I also hate these performance - sportscar brands that they are losing their purposes! Think that, Bugatti or Koenigsegg is making an SUV, what a rude idea it would be!

Ideal for winter windy potholed UK roads. It absolutely disgusts me that Ferrari would get rid of the Lusso for an SUV

  • The thing is that Urus is basically a Q8 Will Ferrari share a platform for the Purosangue? And yes, Harris is right, if the Suv is making money, as we clearly see with the Urus, then they would be stupid not to do it. And to be honest it will be the first family car from Ferrari. The Koenigsegg did a 4 seater something stating it's a family car and that is just wrong. So yes ones again yes to Suv

  • the more cars got stiff because car journalists only talked about track times the more people went for crossovers because they were more comfortable to daily drive. Now the makers of stiff uncomfortable cars are having to catch up to the problem they helped create and car journalists don't like the direction the car industry went. A car doesn't have to go around Nuremburg in under 7 minutes to be a good car.

  • Chris is dead wrong on this. Sorry. I'm going to say something nobody wants to hear, but I disagree with Chris and arguably the whole of the auto journo-sphere. Brands were going with sedans and coupes because the engineering with yester-year's technology demanded the lowest mass physically possible. Obviously that still helps, but suspension and transmission technology has progressed to a point where now, the SUVs of today can outperform Ferraris and such from 10 years ago. So with performance being the goal, and technology allowing it in SUV format, we not only might as well make SUVs from a business perspective, but the capability of today's tech _demands_ that we progress to SUVs. The Bentayga, Urus, et al. are the opposite of excess because they do the most work at their given price points, they're a lot less excessive than a 458 or even Mulsanne, because they're so capable at this point.

We should all just live like cavement and have a diet of water and oats. EVERYTHING that defines human beings is unessecary. So unless you people are all willing to give up everything that makes you happy, don't go giving us this "unessecary" BS talk. I cannot afford one of those SUV's, but I'm not going to crap all over those who want one just coz they've done well in life and want to choose that type of car.
