A standard Top Gear group test goes like this: take cars of the same size,

same price, aiming at the same buyers by doing the same job.

Tease out which of them is best at that job.

Write it down. But today’s group test, you’ll already have discerned, is different.

A regular buyer’s-guide kinda test this is not.

 At first blush, they make a pretty much random convoy.
