Smooth Traffic reaches episode thirty, and has a mini celebration by discussing anything that doesn't relate to being 30. Jonny talks briefly about the Audi TT RS, Ben brings up smart traffic lights from the USA, and Rob tries to keep order when the chaps reveal their highly spec'd cars that start under £25,000.
Jonny tells all about his recent exclusive encounter with the only Porsche 959 cabriolet in the world; the chaps discuss the Renault Kadjar and it's many interesting features; Rob sets the guys a challenge to spec up a cheap car for the next episode; Ben tries his hand at gameshow hosting once again; and there's the inevitable round of Deadliest Boot Spaces.
Jonny and Rob return with a special episode of Smooth Traffic to preview the 2017 Formula One season. In a similar format to last year, the guys will look at the teams and drivers, the 2017 calendar, and the big changes to the sport this season. As well as this, there will be ridiculously bold predictions and a complete absence of Ben.
Jonny shares tales of travelling within the former Yugoslavia while reviewing the brand new Nissan Micra; Rob blends together two regular Smooth Traffic features in order to talk about being a car collector; Jonny discusses an up-and-coming graffiti artist and tries to rally the nation; there's an unusual round of Deadliest Boot Spaces; and the chaps finally resort to toilet humour after Jonny has a new 'experience' in Europe.
The chaps discuss the Smooth Traffic Winter Road Trip 2017, while still on the trip! Comparisons are drawn between the new Subaru WRX STi and it's second generation Impreza predecessor. Rob and Ben both get some issues off of their chests, and there's another round of the missing word game, which still bares no resemblance to any other gameshow segment.
It's a news-heavy episode, as the guys discuss Bentley, Alfa & F1 news. Bentley's proposed fuel-concierge service is discussed, the reveal of the new Alfa Stelvio raises some differing opinions, and Nico Rosberg's decision to retire falls under the Smooth Traffic microscope. There's still time for Ben to rip-off a popular quiz show segment, for Jonny to make some slanderous comments, and for Rob to almost make it through the entire show without being baited by Jonny. Almost.
Jonny returns from his internet connectivity-based issues to talk about the recent launch of the Audi Q2 and how the pricing structure isn't all that it seems. Jonny also talks briefly about the Audi A4 that he currently has on a long-term test. There are some big announcements regarding the Smooth Traffic Winter Road Trip 2017 and the Smooth Traffic Project Car, while Ben once again takes us into the future of autonomous cars to discuss how we'll spend our journey time. Finally, following a special request on Twitter, there's another round of Deadliest Boot Spaces.
Rob talks about the brand new SsangYong Musso, along with a brief summary of the rest of SsangYong's commercial vehicle range; Jonny reveals how the new Caterham 310R compares to the 420R that accompanied the lads on the Summer Road Trip; and Ben takes everyone into the future to discuss how autonomous vehicles could change the motor industry.
In a jam-packed episode, the chaps look at their picks from the Paris Motor Show, both good and bad, and give their first impressions of Forza Horizon 3 on the Xbox One. Rob recounts his time at the SMMT South Day, and declares his love for the Jaguar F-Type R, as well as a pick-up from China. Jonny reviews the new Fiat Tipo and it's tiny touch-screen, along with the new Fiat 124 Spider. There's also a brief recap of the winners of the 2016 Smoothies, that were announced on Twitter recently.
