Land Rover Defender gets new option packs, Volvo reveals sailing-inspired specials, Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer gets 2WD option

Land Rover Defender buyers will be able to specify two new option packs from later this year. The Black Pack includes new paint applied to the roof, grille and wheel arches, plus upgrades to the interior including privacy glass. The Silver Pack adds a silver finish to the exterior trim, as well as new alloy wheels and lights.

Volvo has launched special sailing-inspired editions of its V40, V60 and XC60. The Ocean Race editions celebrate Volvo’s round-the-world boat race, and include special paintwork and alloy wheel designs. Inside, the models get new leather upholstery.

Vauxhall’s Insignia Country Tourer will be available in 2WD form from next month. Prices are expected to start at around £1000 below equivalent four-wheel-drive models, meaning an entry-level 2.0-litre CDTI would cost around £24,349.

Our Verdict

Land Rover Defender

The Land Rover Defender is an institution and unbeatable off road, if crude on it

    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
