Great Car. Certainty didn't rust like all my previous cars.


I remember it well; did you ever watch the Arena program "The Private Life of the Ford Cortina" at the time? It's cult viewing now....

At the very end, Alexi Sayle receives the news that the Cortina is being replaced and the "the new car" gets called "some poxy hatchback"! A phrase that might be just as relevant today Laughing Whistle Rolling Eyes

It actually looks pretty good with a Range Rover rear plate. Even better with rounded edges.

Huge improvement. Don't see why they can't offer bootlid a or b depending on preference?

I didn't think it was possible to make look any worse Laughing

If anything it needs to be squared off instead of looking like Y-fronts.

Having lived with mine for a month, the offset number plate has become the norm, it doesn't stand out as much as it did when I first picked it up.

Sets it apart from all the latest other Euromobiles IMHO.

Went to see an XC90 yesterday and liked it. Will store the thought away for when I am due to change.

I've had a Defender, D3 and now D4 and have never been in a Volvo garage before....JLR must be doing something wrong.

PS Mrs wants a Jag when she next changes cars so JLR will get some ££ out of me even if I defect with my car.

I looked at the Volvo, the F-Pace was also on the list, but I'm glad I chose the D5.

It's positive that there is a broad range of products to choose from. Hopefully we all will get something we like.

I'm keen to see the next Defender, it should workout well for my planned replacement in 2020.

eerrrr.... don't hold your breath for the new Defender.

Which way has LR design been heading recently?

A= Utilitarian / Large / Capable / Affordable
B= Stylish / Incapacious / Fashionable / Expensive

Why do we think the new Defender will go against the trend?

Yep agree CC, reckon the Defender is going to fit in between the DS and D5 ......
....... but much, much closer to the D5.

Explains the reason why they discontinued the original Defender before the new one was ready.
They got rid of the original customer base a good few years early, that allows them to set the price high for a totally new customer target and they don't have to now pander to the original customer base.

Strangely saw my first tonite on way home couldn't make out coming towards me which it was 17 plate block DS ? No only till i saw the offset rear i sighed ! .
Before you glance up the road and say D3 / D4 coming towards you even range rovers now it's so hard you have stay looking longer just to see if your right?.
Been said before and it's plain to see all marques now as so similar from front. Character less .
