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.
Jonny and Rob preview the Smooth Traffic Summer Road Trip 2016, Ben shares his thoughts on drivers thanking pedestrians for not crossing the road, Jonny discusses his experiences with buying and renting cars, and there's a return for the hit gameshow segment, Deadliest Boot Spaces.
