MY21 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque PHEV

17 December 2020

Could the last 12-24 months have been any tougher for JLR? First the expansion of China's economy slowed, the parent firm took a big financial hit, the home market remains convulsed by Brexit, public opinion has turned against diesel engines, and then came COVID. Somehow, Jaguar and Land Rover have endured, helped by new vehicles such as the Evoque plug-in hybrid.


Another successful icon revival - Land Rover's Defender

30 November 2020

Honey, dad now fits the Disco Sport

28 July 2020

Some press cars are memorable; others not so much. The first Discovery Sport I drove - with one of the old Ford diesel engines - was memorable for mostly good reasons - it performed, rode and handled well and was nicely made; it was also memorable because Lardbutt here couldn't get into the third row, much to the amusement of The Family.

11 February 2014

He gave an insight as to the impact that this change could have on the automotive jobs market.
