Land Rover Defender 110

Britain has produced many off-road cars over the years, but very few come close to the infamous Land Rover Defender first released 40 years ago. Fast forward to 2020, Land Rover launched a new chapter in the iconic Defender’s history with the Defender 110, introducing a completely redesigned model that holds on to its heritage and aura, yet offers a wide range of modern features and amenities that result in a fantastic driving experience.

And when it comes to the impressive technology and driving assists included with the 110, the list is very long indeed. From all-terrain progress control to ground and rearview cameras, automatic braking, and advanced towing technology, check out our Land Rover 110 Review to see all of our favourite features.

Jaguar F-Type

Jaguar is high on the list of celebrated British manufacturers with world-famous cars such as the legendary D-Type and E-Type models, right through to their modern-day range of powerful and now electric sports cars and SUVs. And one model that stands out in their current range is the impressive Jaguar F-Type which combines luxury and performance into one, fantastically shaped car.

The two-door sports car has been on the market since 2013, but in 2022 Jaguar announced that no more F-Types will be produced beyond 2023, marking the end of a decade of F-Types, and aligning with Jaguar’s anniversary of 75 years of sports car production.

Available as a coupe or convertible, the F-Type offers a range of engines that includes a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a 3.0-liter supercharged V6, and a 5.0-liter supercharged V8. These engines produce varying levels of power, ranging from 296 horsepower for the four-cylinder to 575 horsepower for the top-of-the-line V8.

Mini Cooper  

When it comes to British cars, very few come close to the famous Mini. With Union Jacks imprinted on the rear lights, iconic British names such as John Cooper stamped over the car, and many models coming in British Racing Green, cars really don’t get more British.

Whilst many car buyers think that Cooper is a model of Mini in its own right, that is not the case. Cooper is a trim level that generally offers more equipment, higher performance, and a sportier look than standard models.

Range Rover Velar

Known for its combination of sleek design, high-tech interior, and performance both on and off the road, the Range Rover Velar is a luxury SUV produced by Land Rover since 2017. Sitting between the smaller Range Rover Evoque and the larger Range Rover Sport, the Velar’s design is characterised by its sleek and minimalist aesthetic, and a distinctive floating roofline.

The popular SUV offers a spacious and modern interior, with high-quality materials and advanced technology, including a touchscreen infotainment system and a digital driver display. The Velar doesn’t stop there, the car’s range of engines produce a performance to match its appearance, starting with the turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and a more powerful supercharged V6.

The Velar also boasts impressive off-road capabilities, with Land Rover's Terrain Response system that adjusts the vehicle's settings to optimise performance in different driving conditions. Overall, if you’re looking for a combination of Land Rover’s off-road performance, practicality and comfort, and plenty of driving assists, the Range Rover Velar is your answer.
