85 ECUs and every one will be using the cheapest microprocessor they could find that would do that job.

One marked "prototype" was at Bicester Scramble this morning. Huge on the outside, small on the inside!

Just like all the rest of the modern 4x4.......Bland and no character. I’ll stick with my TD5 Defender thanks.

I wonder if part of the problem might be that the modern pedestrian safety regulations mandate such large radius curves on the edges?

IMHO it looks better than the current Discovery. Sadly, they have priced it well out of my reach to consider a new purchase.

A 110 base with the Petrol engine comes out at £50,517 with only mud flaps and a towing kit selected as options. Just too much.

5 years ago, a well specified 110 was £31,000 when we bought a 2 year old Discovery for the same money. Good luck to Land-Rover if they can get people to pay these prices now.
