ANALYSIS - Range Rover Sport SDV8

Porsche has pulled the 4.0-litre engine out of the Cayenne, while Audi, BMW and Mercedes offer a maximum of six-cylinders in their new Q8, X5 and GLE SUVs respectively.

ANALYSIS - Land Rover future models

30 October 2018

September was an uncharacteristically poor month for Land Rover, with deliveries down 19 per cent. That's being blamed on tariff rises in China. Europe and North America are still strong though, and new models should help get Land Rover back into growth mode in all major markets.
