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).

The Range Rover Evoque range has been simplified, but it's still broad. Here, we test the P300 R-Dynamic SE, with a starting price close to 90 grand.

Road Trip: Tokyo to Mount Fuji via the Hakone Skyline

The Land Rover Discovery sticks out like a sore thumb in the traffic jam I’m currently stuck in, its hulking white presence in stark contrast to the conglomeration of kei cars all patiently inching forward on Tokyo’s complicated, and currently clogged, motorway system. Back home in Australia, traffic tends to bring out the worst in people...

2020 Range Rover Evoque review: P200 R-Dynamic S

Land Rover’s fashionable 2020 Range Rover Evoque carries a designer price tag even in entry-level form, but it’s posher, roomier and more refined in second-generation form.

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.

NEW Land Rover Defender revealed! Watch our walkaround review

Some days, we thought we'd never see another Defender. It was all taking too long, and hope was thin on the ground. Now, eight years since it unveiled the DC100 concept, Land Rover has finally come through with a new-generation Defender. What do you think? CarAdvice is at the Frankfurt Motor Show, watch Alborz Fallah walk you through the new-gen model...

2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport Si4 v Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk comparison

If you want something a little more adept off-road than your typical road-biased SUV, one of these two might fit the bill. Maybe you want to do some off-road adventuring, but you don’t want to throw the baby out with the bathwater. And maybe you’re more realistic about what you’re actually going to do, rather than what you’re aspiring to do...

Land Rover Discovery Sd4 review: On road, off road, and towing

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?

Jaguar Land Rover CEO to step down

Jaguar Land Rover has confirmed its CEO Ralf Speth will step down from the role when his contract expires in September 2020. He will remain with the company, though, staying on as non-executive vice chairman, and keeping his seat on the board of Tata Sons. The German engineer has been in charge of the British luxury car maker since 2010, taking over not long after Tata bought the automaker from Ford in the middle of 2008...

New Jaguar Land Rover shape-shifting seat mimics walking

Jaguar Land Rover’s Body Interiors research division is trialling shape-shifting seats that trick your brain into thinking you’re walking. JLR call it a ‘morphable’ seat where actuators in the foam mimic the rhythm of walking. Each seat can be suited for different drivers, much like memory seats currently found in modern cars...

Mercedes pips BMW in global sales race, Volvo the rapid mover

All car manufacturers like to put a positive spin on things, but 2019 was a largely positive sales year for luxury brands worldwide. Most of the bigger players that have released calendar year sales figures showed growth, with the exception of Jaguar Land Rover. Mercedes-Benz recorded 1.3 per cent sales growth worldwide to 2,339,562 vehicles...

Audi, Jaguar and Land Rover sales stall, BMW and Mercedes stabilise, Lexus posts record result

Audi had a year it would rather forget after being hamstrung by supply of new models due to certification delays out of Europe, while German rivals BMW and Mercedes weathered the 2019 storm by holding their own in a declining market. The other surprise to come from the luxury-car sector was Japan’s Lexus, which posted its best result since being established in Australia 29 years ago...

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...
