Shame they don't do a copy of the 90 as yet!

Will have to see if I can arrange a test drive locally.
Have mailed them and awaiting a reply.

Don't drive a Defender then a Sultana.. drive a good series 111 first. I'm not knocking the Sultana.. but it is far more of a progression from earlier Solihull offerings than a direct comparison with new defenders in terms of ride and...err.. handling

My partner in crime has the one in the photo and he likes it.. he won't buy another new LR, simply because they, as a company, don't address "known issues" whilst Santana seem to..so far!

Cheers Jono.

Have driven everything from a series IIa up over the years.
In fact a series IIa was the first thing I drove at the tender age of 14!!
Off road of course
My fav has to be the 101 forward control, I like things quirky!

On the website they seem to have addressed some of the LR issues so really want to give one a go to see if they actually do deal with the issues they say they have.

Have been a great LR fan for most of my life and am looking for a 90 but is the Santana is better then I may go for the 110.
Even more so as I can get the Santana, with all the toys for he price of a 90.
With the loss of the side facing seats this means the 90 will only seat 4 now and not 6, the 110 7 and not 9.

The Santana seems to be getting some great feedback.

Regards

Just one thing more to be wary of... residual values. You might want to do some checking on these..
