Well, we saw it stop, but we didn't see it restart...
I can promise you - it'd find it soooo easy to restart on that little slope. The ones I tried were romping up rutted, muddy banks that I couldn't even stand up on...

Re: Porsche Cayenne video review

Vicky Parrott sounds like she's struggling to make her voice lower than it really is. I don't know if it's on purpose or if that's her actual voice...

I thought that at 1:37 she'd had enough of it and would start talking normally, but at around 1:50 she's back to the grumbly low voice at its fullest.

Listen to how she says "sports car fun" at 2:21.

Anyhoo, her voice is none of my business, and that is not my point. My point is, does autocar believe good writers automatically make good video presenters? Did they even arrange a casting among the staff or did they just choose blindly, err... I mean, deafly?

Steve sutcliffe, and Matt Prior also have some moments when they speak in very...peculiar ways.

There's nothing wrong about sending video presenter candidates to speech therapy, quite the opposite: it makes sense.

Gimme an X5 any day

No way! The X5 is a heffalump- this at least looks semi attractive and a big improvement on the last gen- although it wouldnt be too hard ..

Sure, the X5 is a heffalump, but this is worse. Heck, I'd even prefer a first-gen Cayenne just for looks. But the more I think about it, the more I just think 'proper Rangey TDV8'.
