TopGear telly is getting a new Reasonably Priced Car. Here’s a fitting tribute to the Cee Apostrophe D and a look into what could replace it.
It’s time to move on, TopGear’s reigning reasonably priced car, the bewitching Kia Cee Apostrophe D, has been given the sack. Many, many average celebrities – some even above average – have sat atop its racing seat, taken it by the scruff of the neck, and given it a good beating.
Many memories were made inside the Kia’s roll-cage equipped interior, some even say, rather disturbingly, that TopGears producers had to wipe its seats clean of brownery after each episode, apparently celebrities have bowel problems – must be all that wheat free, soy free, gluten free, tofu infused rubbish, or The Stigs insane driving. It’s a proper monster the Cee Apostrophe D and its work here is done.
Naturally, this begs the question, how do you replace something so breathtaking, so majestic, so heroic and so reasonably priced? It’s certainly going to be a tough act to follow. But here are five cars that we believe would be worthy replacements for the Kia Cee Apostrophe D.
Erm… The Kia Cee Apostrophe D!
There is of course a new version of TopGears now retired Kia Cee Apostrophe D hatchback, but it’s even more breathtaking, heroic, majestic and reasonably priced.
Skoda is all about reasonably pricey-ness, and the Octavia would look absolutely monstrous through Gambon corner.
Like the Skoda, the Seat is reasonably priced, but it looks all angle-y, like a samurai designed it.
The Focus is very nimble, and would take hammerhead like a raging rabbit. It also comes with lots of gizmo’s for not very much coin.
Literally the entire world would love to see the Dacia Sandero storm around Dunsfold, especially James May. The Sandero is a 90hp, three-cylinder, turbocharged, Romanian-built rocket ship with steelies and even a radio on the top spec model. There’s more GOOD NEWS! You can have all of this for just £5,995 – I don’t think it’s possible to get more reasonably priced.
All will be revealed when TopGear returns to your telly towards the end of June.
