As much as I liked my Freelander it was coming on ten year old, probably about to cost me some money and I just fancied a new car.
I had a test drive in a new Discovery Sport but IMHO its not really a Freelander replacement. It comes with seven seats as standard and seems a real take the kids to school Chelsea Tractor. Also it didn’t seem that well finished inside.
So we tried a Volvo XC60 and I just liked it and that’s what I bought.
I’m not that convinced the dealership will look after me as well as Marshalls where I bought the Freelander. Also I’m sure that the Volvo won’t be as good off road but I don’t intend to go Green Laning in it. As long as it gets me in and out of the trials venues that will be fine.
