Our Verdict

Land Rover Discovery

Is this a triumph of style over substance or is the fifth-gen Discovery the best yet?

If I was going to be forced to drive around in a grumpy looking new shape Q7. God they look crap. I'd go so far as to say the first version looked better.

18 August 2017

just seen the photos and image of the new x5 and BMW cetainly know how to make an suv look mighty uglythe propportions are horrendous.same with thwe q7 you would only buy at a good discount, due to it is cheap.better still wait till it is a couple of years old,as long as you can live with the sad looks.

19 March 2017
Well done for beating me to it. Many Audis, including the R8 and TT, now look visually disappointing compared to previous versions too, but the Q7 is by far the worst.

2 June 2017
Couldn't agree more. The new Q7 is a visual mess, with far too many fussy creases along the waistline and around the wheelarches. It looks drab, like an XL estate car rather than an SUV. The old one at least had a certain brutal elegance to it.

7 April 2017
Maybe. But just think, if these cars have already depreciated by £5k or more before they've been driven, then they are probably going to continue loosing big money after purchase. Perhaps in the long run it would be better to buy something where demand exceeds supply, rather than the opposite here?

Care to comment on a 320d xDrive M Sport model :- "edging the price down close to £21k.". I'm so dubious of these companies, asked for a quote once and I just got spam!


Hydrogen cars just went POP

29 September 2017

Not a dealer but have just spent too much time talking deals with several on a 335D Touring: bottom line, accept nothing less than 22-23% discount and 0% finance (you only get the full discount if taking finance) then pay the whole thing off immediately. Decided in the end that dealing with sales people for dinosaur burners was just too much hassle, so going straight to electric.

People shouldn't be allowed to drive an XC90 without an HGV licence. It may be OK for the USA, but it is just too wide for our roads.

It's more the case that parking space widths are just not fit for purpose anymore. Every car has grown every time there's a new model, since cars began, and yet recommended parking space sizes have not changed since 1994. Bearing in mind a space which is 1.8m wide is permissible, almost every car on sale is wider than that. Many cars are longer than the 4.5m which is the minimum length required.

You can technically drive a tractor, a tank or a privately owned bus or coach on a car licence, so any car is still small in comparison. I've driven a lot of things a lot bigger than an XC90 without a problem. But I think what you were really saying is, I don't like it, therefore no-one should have one.

And the justification is what, if I may ask? Manufacturers make the cars cleaner, safer, plusher, yet they can't make them more space efficient? The first gen Mercedes A-Class (W168/V168) was perfect. Full size 7-seat MPVs like the original Espace and Eurovan1 were 4.40. Let's see if dedicated electric car platforms can save even more space by pushing the batteries under the floor. IMHO road tax should be based on the amount of road occupied (length and width); let's see if we can reverse the trend that way.
Roads stay the same. Parking spaces between pillars in garages under buildings stay the same. If cars grow and can't fit anymore, it's not the parking space's or the road's fault.
