Land Rover Discovery's Ultimate Towing Test

Land Rover Discovery's Ultimate Towing Test

20/09/2017 12:14:57

The shear pulling power of the 2018 Land Rover Discovery has been demonstrated in the Australian Outback, with the sight of a 110-tonne road train being towed by the renowned SUV. Land Rover took on the ultimate towing test by pulling the massive road train across a closed section of the Lasseter Highway in the remote Northern Territory, Australia. With 600Nm of torque, the Discovery Td6 is well suited to pulling heavy loads. The 258PS 3.0-litre single-turbo engine features low-pressure exhaust recirculation and a two-stage oil pump for improved responses, refinement and efficiency. As a result, the diesel model delivers CO2 emissions of 189g/km and fuel economy of 39.2mpg (7.2l/100 km).

Ford is updating its established Mondeo line-up with new sports and luxury models aimed at both fleet and private buyers, with the former seven series making up the Mondeo range being simplified to five. Owen Gregory, Ford of Britain fleet director, said: "We know Mondeo customers want their cars to stand out. This has propelled Mondeo drivers from core series to distinctly sporty and luxury-looking models. Making this easier and more affordable takes Mondeo into 2018 in style." All five models have navigation, DAB, autonomous braking to mitigate or avoid low-speed collisions at under 31mph, front/rear parking sensors and cruise control with speed limiter as standard. ST-Line series introduce extras including front, rear and side body styling, lowered sports suspension, Ford Power start button and darkened headliner.

Jaguar Land Rover has set a new record in 2016, producing 1,727,471 vehicles.

We are proud to call ourselves a British company and are committed to ensuring manufacturing remains the backbone of the British economy."

New Insignia - the Grand Sport

Vauxhall has released the first pictures of its all-new Insignia Grand Sport. Following on from the previous generation, which won the European Car of the Year in 2009, and sold over 30,000 in the UK last year, the Insignia Grand Sport is based on a completely new vehicle architecture. It is also the first Vauxhall with an active aluminium bonnet, improving pedestrian protection considerably. "Vauxhall is raising its game even further with the launch of the new Insignia Grand Sport," said Rory Harvey, Vauxhall's Chairman and Managing Director. "It has all of the virtues of its successful smaller brother the Astra, and takes those to a higher level. The Insignia Grand Sport will set new standards for design, efficiency, technology and connectivity when it debuts next year at the Geneva Motor Show."


Land Rover Residual Forecast - Very Good

Land Rover Residual Forecast - Very Good

18/10/2016 15:17:17

It was building for the future last month when the new Land Rover Discovery was launched at Packington Hall next to the largest Lego construction ever-created, all 5.8 million bricks worth! And now the independent industry body CAP is bringing good news to the fleet and leasing business as it is estimating that the new Land Rover Discovery will retain 59% of its residual value over three years or 36,000 miles. This is partly due to its 2.0 litre Ingenium engine which is of aluminium construction and therefore lighter and more efficient and gives a servicing interval of 21,000 miles or two years. According to Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar's Land Rover UK Managing Director: "The new Discovery is already proving to be immensely competitive against the established competition. High residuals and reduced running costs mean that Discovery customers can enjoy all the improved benefits over the outgoing Discovery and its peers for less." The new Land Rover Discovery can be ordered now, with UK deliveries to start in the spring. It's priced from £43,495 or £399 per month on the road.
