New four-cylinder SD4 Ingenium - best Range Rover Sport yet?

1 September 2017

Is JLR's Ingenium 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine up to the task of powering 2.1+ tonnes of Range Rover Sport? Perhaps surprisingly, the answer is not only a definite yes but if the other V6 and V8 options did not exist, this could well be all the RRS that anyone needs.


ANALYSIS - Land Rover and Range Rover SUVs for the 2020s

9 August 2017

Land Rover is both the vehicle volume and profits powerhouse of not only JLR but Tata Motors Limited too. Thanks to a spark of genius which saw the L538 project take on Range Rover branding and pricing, what became the Evoque changed everything for Land Rover. Now comes the hard bit: new generations of the Evoque, Sport and Range Rover are being developed. Can Land Rover remain TML's biggest money spinner?

Q&A with Jonathan Lee Recruitment: UK referendum on leaving the EU and the impact on the automotive industry of a restriction of skilled staff movement

11 February 2014

The British Prime Minister, David Cameron, has promised a referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union by 2017 (after the next general election). The Confederation of British Industry has argued that staying in the EU is overwhelmingly favourable for business; a view shared by the PM. Despite this, the issue has divided business leaders and spelled uncertainty for investors in UK-based global industries at a time when economic recovery and growth is crucial. In this interview, Matthew Beecham spoke with Jon Blaze, Head of Recruitment Operations at Jonathan Lee Recruitment, a leading specialist engineering recruitment consultancy. He gave an insight as to the impact that this change could have on the automotive jobs market.
