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...

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...

2013 Land Rover Freelander 2 Td4 Se (4x4) Review

When I retired 2 years ago I wanted to buy a car that made me feel good to drive, was easy to get into, good fuel consumption and just enjoyable with a little bit of luxury. In short, I wanted more than just a people mover to get me from A to B. I am quite tall with a bad back so SUV's quickly became the preferred cars because of the ease of getting into and out of even though I will do very little if any off road driving...

1997 Land Rover Defender 110 (4x4) Review

You read the jurno reviews, that all tell you how uncomfortable on the road the Defender is. Have they ever driven one 14 hours a day for weeks on end? Long days of highway driving followed by days in a desert, and thousands of kilometers of secondary corrugated roads? When you do, you realise how comfortable it is...

2015 Land Rover Discovery 4 3.0 Sdv6 Hse Review

Pricing hits the mark with competitors all around the $100,000 point, though a diesel Mercedes sends it north of $120,000. In relative terms, the $95,900 for the upmarket HSE version of the Disco 4 is good value. It offers a spacious seven seats, good fuel economy, lots of features, strong 3500kg tow rating plus awesome off-road ability...

1974 Land Rover (4x4) Review

So your wondering from the feature review why anyone would buy this 4x4. It is because this is the original SUV before SUV's where a thing. You get a drivers seat and that is it, not even a stereo. Its made to drive and nothing else. The interior is utilitarian and in a way snug, its made for work and fowl play...

1994 Land Rover Discovery Review

The 2 door discovery features many pro-active features loved by Land rover fans and DIY Mechanical enthusiast, with the ease of maintaining your own car being a strong selling point that many buyers are still after in 2nd hand models. The 1994 onward models feature a face lifted interior and all the things that make a good car...
