Join the debate over the future of Ford’s British luxury car brands
25 July 2007

This week, Autocar asks a simple question that's nonetheless a vital one for two of the biggest names in British car-making: what should be done with Ford's remaining UK-based Premier Automotive Group brands, Jaguar and Land Rover?The controversy surrounding these two historic marques has been rumbling on for weeks, and we expect news from Ford and PAG soon identifying the foremost bidders for the two intertwined brands.However, is Ford right to sell? This week in Autocar magazine, you'll find writers Hilton Holloway, Peter Robinson, Julian Rendell and Steve Cropley each arguing for a different course of action by Ford. Once you've read them, we'd like you to decide whether your think the Midlands-based sister brands should be retained as they are, massively overhauled under Ford's ownership, split up and run as entirely separate concerns, or sold off to the highest bidder.Get Autocar magazine, on sale today, to read the respective arguments for each course of action; once you've done that, cast your vote by clicking here.We'll be compiling your votes next week, after the vote ends on Wednesday night. Look out for a news story with the results on Friday 3 August.

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
