Land Rover

The British Land Rover was established in 1948 by the Wilks Brothers with the launch of Series 1. The Original Land Rover’s was well known for being an all-terrain vehicle with high durability due to the type of metal used (WWII scraps). Land Rovers presence in Australia has been strong with the Defender, Freelander 2 and Discovery 4 all currently available. Along with Jaguar, Land Rover is owned by Tata Motors (India).

And more. For us at CarAdvice, it is, unsurprisingly, also the cars. We are privileged to travel around the world for our job, visiting cities, countries and far-flung corners we might otherwise never see in our lives...

2017 Land Rover Discovery TD6 HSE Luxury review

See the full article here. The 2017 Land Rover Discovery is more car-like, but more off-roadable than ever before in this, its fifth-generation guise. According to the brand, it’s more adept at dealing with the school run, but also more hardcore than previously imagined...

2017 Land Rover Discovery review

Read the full review here. The all-new 2017 Land Rover Discovery takes the brand’s most recognised model to new heights of refinement, off-roading ability and interior practicality, but is that enough to entice buyers away from its European rivals when it lands in Australia come July?  ...

Ford Everest Titanium v Land Rover Discovery SDV6 SE: Comparison Review

Bracket creep. It’s a term used by finance types to signify the often unintentional shift from one tax bracket to another. In the context of cars, the meaning is quite similar. For years we have seen mainstream brands pushing ever more premium offerings, which in turn attract more premium pricing...

Civic Type R v Defender V8 drag race - video

The Honda Civic Type R has already proven itself performance king among front-drive hot hatches, so now it's looking for bigger fish to fry. In what's one of the weirdest match-ups in drag race history, Top Gear has lined up the UK-built hatch against a Land Rover Defender – what?! However, this isn't just any Land Rover Defender, in fact, it's the 297kW/515Nm Defender Works V8, a bespoke version of the iconic off-roader created by Jaguar Land Rover to commemorate the model's 70th anniversary...

2011 Land Rover Freelander 2 TD4 (4x4) review

"The soft-roader for genuine 4WD tracks." All the reviews I read prior to purchase said "a genuine Land Rover off-road". I have a 2011 base-model 2.2 diesel, auto ’box (six-speed). It's very, very comfortable on the highway at legal speeds, and would be equally comfy at illegal speeds. This is most notable if you're doing over 500km in a day – one isn't exhausted...

2010 Land Rover Freelander 2 SE TD4 (4x4) review

I bought this car new in 2010 and at the time it was the only vehicle that ticked all my criteria. I was after a small to medium-sized SUV, diesel auto with some decent off-road and towing ability. Plenty more choices today if I were to go through the same exercise. On the bright, side the Freelander has been a fairly reliable and comfortable ride...

2015 Land Rover Discovery 4 3.0 Tdv6 Review

Man, what a vehicle this has been. Kids, wife, Dog, sporting goods, groceries, just throw everything in and cruise along. My 2015 Discovery 3 litre TDV6 handles like a pro. I've had an old 2005 V8 petrol version before; horrendous reliability. But this one has not shown a single electronic gremlin so far. Have owned the car for 6 great months...

2014 Land Rover Discovery 4 3.0 Tdv6 Review

The Disco4 is my modern age Volvo 240Wagon or Merc230TE with the bonus of 4WD. We regularly cover 1000klm trips with one fuel stop and arrive with our three kids feeling relaxed having worked through badly broken road surfaces with ease. Engine power is adequate as its weight counts against it. There is small lag with off the mark acceleration...
