Forgot to say towing capacity 2000kg or 2200kg on less than 8% gradients. Permanent 4x4 using same drive train as Audi Quattro.

Pulls my 1400kg rib package up slimy slipways you can barely stand up and the odd shingle beach (Portland slipway at low tide) effortlessly. Massive carrying capactiy inside too. Have fitted a (folded) kingsize mattress and a double leather sofa (whole) in there with the boot shut in the past.

Yeah true. Just what the manufacturer states.

It tows my rib very easily without any issues at all. That weighs in at 1350kg on the weighbridge. I think the car is quite heavy at 1650kgs..

But I wouldn't really want to tow anything that weighs more than the car on any vehicle.

Still for sale, price reduced!

So I've finally got around to buying a new car now so this has to go.

Price reduced to 6000 ono.

Mileage is now 94,600 miles but has just been serviced and Mot'd, taxed until October.

Viewing and inspection welcome. I've just driven it from Poole to Orkney and back - 2000 miles all in and it drives like a new car. Averaged 52mpg with a heavy right foot too!
