It looks like a bigger version of the Fiat Panda 4x4

I suspect the chassis isn’t from a Fiat Punto equivalent. I know it’s a dedicated floor because a friend who’s an engineer at LandRover told me he was proud of his contribution.

I love it. Priced up a 110 though, and it came in at £62k without going silly. Ouch.

156 GTA Q2 SW

Have to say really like it, expensive yes, but the engineering behind it is impressive. Land Rover will sell shed loads, without so much as a small discount.....and most of them will go wrong!

I'd buy one over a Jeep (and it pains me to say that!) The versatility of the new Defender, available options and packs shows it means to go where no Land Rover has been before (not saying it will get back)

Jeep can't even do 5+2 seating !

On the 3dr, what’s that ‘for sale’ sign on the rear side window all about?

Quick review from stumpy.

I like the front seat.

So despite the gazillions of ECUs the wading depth is less than a series 111 and they boast about it, as I said before I can't see this being used to feed the beasts in the top field. It will be handy on the school run though and outside the wine bar in the king's road.

It’s rounded off in every direction with no emphasis in any direction as a result. Just like the MG F , also from Gerry McG.

Office Chair.

I have the image of some network vagabond roaming the networks of the world, but it's just an agricultural remake (probably a lot less agricultural now I guess) of an old Landrover.
