There are some cars that just do not make sense in Britain. The small island has relatively high fuel prices, a steep gas-guzzler tax, and — most of all — narrow roads. So it’s rather difficult for a lifelong Brit like Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson to see the point in the hulking Hummer H2. Surprisingly, though, the normally-harsh critic gave the H2 and its military-grade predecessor, the H1, a fair chance when reviewing them.
After driving them (and getting stuck) around a small town with narrow roads, Jeremy concludes that despite their gargantuan size and lackluster fuel economy (he got 1 MPG when accelerating, but who doesn’t?), Hummers “make you feel like you’re seven years old” — which is about as friendly as we’ve heard Clarkson describe an American car. Too bad they’re no longer around.
