The wrong speedo
Have you ever brought a knife to a gunfight? A speedo to a beach party? If you can imagine the buttocks-clenching feeling of such faux-pas, you have a good idea what state I was in while testing the newest compact SUV from Jaguar. You see, we didn’t just saunter through town with the E-Pace, we took it deep into the dirty Karoo.
Die beste 4×4 /SUV kombinasie nog?
Die naam ‘Discovery’ het ‘n sterk persoonlike konnotasie vir my. Nie te lank terug nie het ek as student die TD1 model deur die nat en modderige Cederberge geneem. Tot vandag bly dit een van my gunsteling herinneringe. ‘n Land Rover Discovery, met meer as 350 000km op die enjin, gemaklik op die pad, maar selfs meer op die rowwe grondpad van die Tankwa Karoo.
A new car, lots of info in short paragraphs.
What you need to know: The Freelander is no more. Remember that square, compact, slightly drab-looking Land Rover? Well, quite a few of my acquaintances bought its practical boxy shape and – save for owners of early examples – are happy chappies and don’t look like they’ll upgrade their Landies any time soon.
Disco vs Disco
It’s not often that I get the chance to compare two vastly differing models in the same range, so I’m grabbing a recent opportunity with both hands to present the top and the basic specification of Land Rover’s Discovery 4 range.
