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

But thrash it he did, and boy did he get it a long way into the air. I did my best to jump both cars, too, and found that the Honda was infinitely better at landing than the Toyota, maintaining a much more natural flight path and plopping to the earth without fuss. The Toyota seemed to want to go nose-high in the air and landed with a lurch. The big message here is that if you enjoy your driving, and your mode around town is ‘zippy', the Honda is the car of choice. All the Prius has going for it is grip.
