The road tests don't show that this is a really good tow car for big loads - It really tows over 3 tons effortlessly. It is the best tow car for stability I've had since the good old Isuzu Trooper - only much more powerful and comfortable.
I don't understand the test comments on cornering - it is less of a yachting experience than a Range Rover at almost half the price.
It is also quicker on all acceleration tests than all the diesel opposition especially the 2.7 Disco slugs and absolutely leaves shoguns for dead. So, it uses slightly more fuel than the previous 5 cylinder model? In the real world, Shoguns and Discos use more fuel trying to keep up.
yes the inside is plasticy - but mud wipes off very well. I don't buy a 4x4 for any pose value and if I didn't need to tow a 3 tonne loaded horse trailer, go off-road or do both at once; I would buy a Mercedes C320 and enjoy the same engine in a vehicle made to go fast round corners.
bad points? too easy to switch lights off completely when dipping main beam, needs pockets behind both front seats and generally more passenger storage pockets/bins.
I just bought the 3.0 crd auto with 30000 m on it .it looks and drive very nice indeed. much much better than the frontera i had , i hop it will gose well with me as i have had very bad luck with the frontera although it was almost new a lot of things went wrong please wish me luck ,
I have just purchased a month old car and saved a fortune on the new price which makes this excellent vehicle even better. The car is responsive, smooth and powerful, an absolute joy to drive. After test driving other 4x4s I can not understand the Whatcar Reviews as the Jeep is as good, if not better to drive than the rivals and far better value.
The MPG could be better but I knew to expect te low 20's to mid 20's which is exactly what it does. The car only has 1400 miles on the clock, consequently, economy may improve with a few more miles under the belt.
This car is a great all rounder and I'm constantly suprised at the low ratings given by What Car. Still maybe it's because it hasn't got a Land Rover badge. Mine is a 4.7 Limited and I've now had the LPG conversion done to help with the fuel cost which were not too bad for a 4.7 at 19 - 24 mpg. What we want to see is the price of LPG go down at the same rate petrol has. We're paying 49p a litre now and it should be 42 - 44p. It's a solid car on road and the seats are really comfortable and the heated seats are awesome, stereo is total class.
