I recognised the SCUBA location immediately - I dived it a decade ago in Iceland. It's "Silfra" in Thingvellir (best "viz" in the world) and I drove there in my very own Land Rover - the one I still tow RIBs with

Lol, what makes you say that, the built in coat hanger?
At least the interior wasn't designed by Posh Spice (I think...)

Short on space compared with the other models
And getting away from what LR are all about.
My opinion only though others may think different

Looks very freelandish

I can't believe the D3 was created over 10 years ago and still looks modern

If you are going to have a Land Rover then have a Land Rover . If not then get a comfy, economic Chelsea tractor . No point in sitting somewhere in the middle .

I'd av one, it can tow me rib to most anywhere I'd want to tow it, there's enough room for all me rib kit, it's got a heater n comfy seats, maybe ain't got low box but it's got fancy electronics that'll keep the wheels turning on a slippery slip, n I bet it'll be a touch better on the go juice than me 90 is only downside I can see is a 2nd D4 XS will be a better buy ...............

my point exactly once you go away from the the defender for more comfort then all the other 4x4 come into the market . My 110 is top spec heated heated leather seats etc . but it is noisy , draughty, and drinks fuel for fun . I hate it for 90% of the time but grin like a Cheshire Cat for 10% .
