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).

Project Cars: 2001 Land Rover Defender 130 – Update

The first introduction of my old Land Rover Defender was brief, without too much detail or history. In this instalment, we delve into the story of buying and modifying the Defender, and some of the adventures we've had since. After my 1971 Series IIA Land Rover – my daily driver at the time – failed its annual roadworthy test in spectacular form many years ago, I decided to get something a little bit newer...

Video: 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB250 v 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport P250 R-Dynamic SE

The Land Rover Discovery Sport is no stranger to Australians, having gone on sale here in 2015. The Mercedes-Benz GLB, however, is much newer having gone on sale in 2020. Both occupy the medium-SUV class, and both fall into the ‘prestige’ sub-segment of the category. So, which is the better of these two flexible family freighters?

Video: 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport long-term review – going off-road

Land Rover is a brand that sells itself on adventure. I don't believe that can be contested. From its depictions in media and communications through to every interactive touch point, be it online or in physical manifestations, this seems to be the case.

As the first sometimes seven-seaters in the medium prestige SUV race, which of these two versatile haulers fits family life the best?

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...

Seven new-car safety features becoming must-haves in 2021

There's little doubt our expectations for new cars are higher than ever. With every passing year, autonomous driving becomes more of a widespread reality, five-star ANCAP ratings are harder to obtain and standard equipment lists grow longer. Put simply: we crave cars that are smarter (and safer) than we are...

2019 Range Rover Evoque D180 SE (132kW) review

I fell in love with the Evoque at first sight and knew I had to have one the moment I saw the flush-mount door handles come out the first time (typical male). I bought it new at the end of 2019 and found the buying process really pleasant...

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Velar P250 SE (184kW) review

I purchased the Velar as an upgrade to a Jaguar XE. I loved the look of the Velar and I eagerly waited the seven months until it arrived in March 2019. I should note that I upgrade cars like people change their underwear. I have owned 25 cars in eight years and I tend to drive to enjoy them before looking for another new model...

2020 Land Rover Defender 110 review

OK, I get that this isn't a real car, but boy it's some piece of engineering. I test-drove the new Defender a few weeks back and it was fun. I kind of prefer my Disco 4 to be honest but I get the appeal of the new Defender, it's very cool. So, rather than sign on the line for a new Defender ,I went ahead and bought a LEGO one...

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...
