The Stig’s flying hybrids
The Stig tries to make ultra-frugal hybrids oversteer, and then jumps them over a humpbacked bridge

This will not be a scientific test. The plan, if you could call it a plan, will go something like this: brim these two hybrids at the start of the day, so full that you can see the fuel in their filler necks, because that seems like a road-testery thing to do. Then drive them in London side-by-side and check their trip computers to see which is more economical in town. Then take them up the M1 to Millbrook test track near Milton Keynes to check which is more economical on a motorway cruise. Note the results and scratch chins and say ‘hmmm'.
