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).

2020 Land Rover Defender review

The time has come: CarAdvice has been granted special permission to drive the all-new 2020 Land Rover Defender. It’s not just a quick fang around a manicured block, either. We’re sliding into the next generation of this iconic nameplate in the wild, northern reaches of Namibia.

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport review

This is no ordinary midlife update. The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport is a super-competent seven-seater in a hotly contested luxury medium-SUV segment. It’s technically an update to the model that came out in 2015, one which this Alborz Fallah actually bought and owned for some time.

Off-road specs comparison: Land Rover Defender 110 v Jeep Wrangler Rubicon v Toyota LandCruiser 76

We can't do this comparison 'in the flesh' just yet, but that's not going to stop our Off-road Editor from carrying it out in his head.

2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk v Land Rover Discovery Sport Si4 comparison

Going off-road is great fun. Something off-road capable can open up a lot of doors to places you were otherwise unable to visit. It changes a vehicle from being a conduit between A and B, into a ticket to adventure. But, having a proper 4WD does come with compromises. Take it from me: while great off-road, my own 4WD is abhorrent to park, loud and noisy, and is eons away from being a capable commuter...

2017 Audi Q7 v 2016 Land Rover Discovery comparison

The 2016 Land Rover Discovery is the last of the current generation. Does the SDV6 HSE have what it takes, to take down the 2017 Audi Q7 3.0 TDI 160kW quattro?

Around the tracks: Dictator cars, Elon Musk's baby name decoded and a Land Rover 'Star Wars' moment

When we’re not creating it ourselves, the CarAdvice team spends a lot of time finding and consuming motoring content from all over the world. Here’s a handful of the photos, articles, videos or social media posts that most caught our eye last week. Some of them are brand new, others have been online for a while.

The 20 cars with the best resale value on the used car market

When purchasing a new car, potential resale value is often front of mind for buyers. Given the average vehicle age in Australia is 10.2 years, no matter how much you love your latest purchase, there's a high chance you'll be looking to sell it in a decade's time for a newer model – if not sooner. This is where making the right decision today will pay off down the line...

10 new cars we're excited about in 2020

When planning to buy a new car, it pays to have options. And while the Australian car market currently offers more than enough to keep you browsing for weeks on end – there's more to come over the next 12 months.

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...
