I would go for a Landy but then I'm a bit biased as I have & love my D3!
For me I looked at all sorts but at the end of the day I new if I bought some thing else I would not be totally happy!

Kia Sorento's are very good value for money wrong badge I imagine.
If I had to buy one my money would go on a Touareg/ Audi Q7.

New Jeep Wrangler unlimited 4 door thats my baby. Going to test this afternoon
You are comparing chalk and chees - the Wranglers rival is the Defender. Just look at the towing capacity or resale.

http://www.brightwells.com/4x4/Recen...2/Default.aspx

If you look at past results you will see the Land Rovers have much better resale than anything else - often going for as much as 150% of book value - most of the foreign 4x4s go for much less - usually about 50 - 75% book.

i agree the landrover will hold its value better than the wrangler..
But.....The Wrangler is so so cool
Also it has this new thingy called "mygig" and thats fantastic.
I used to have a 4ltr manual and it was so much fun.

Hummers are horrible things to drive on the road, even on the big roads in the States. I didn't like it one bit.
