Lovely machine, but no air bags, no electric mirrors and unfortunally, still built by land rover. I rather my series 1 and disco commercial, no better combination.
Keep you money in your pockets......

I think that must be the only car vid I've seen where the vehicle doesn't actually move! Have they put an engine in it?

Also looks like they've rinsed it down during every 'action' shot (or maybe craned it into position?)

You might want to consider the 'new' landrovers... santana.co.uk

We went to a test day yesterday and there s not a lot of difference... except the top of the range one comes in at around £22k on the road.

Oh but no airbags until next year and they're steel - galvanised chassis thou.

Very nice motors...

Are they going to let Squaddies play with that dashboard.
Hope they've sorted the heating now.

I think it looks like the magazine have filmed the pictures that were released to make it look like a film

Interesting to see that they have just welded the front air vents closed, I guess it must have aircon, they say the heater is 50% more efficient plus the 6 gears gives it a wider range for towing and motorways. All the curvy stuff leaves no flat area on the dash for gadgets or cups of coffee when you are parked up It doesn't look too different from outside to the present one, just the hump on the bonnet really.

I wonder how the price will reflect with the changes?
