PLAYING WITH FULL-SIZE remote-control Range Rovers, traversing impenetrable Malaysian rainforest Camel Trophy-style, retracing the tyre tracks of the Land Rover’s fathers, and blasting along in a go-faster Freelander that Solihull never built… This month’s LRO is full of gigs that had the whole team shouting ‘Me, me, me!’ like schoolkids being picked for a game of five-a-side. They all add up to make an issue that’s full of variety, with pretty much every model covered. Only about Defenders? Not LRO. On that note, we’ve just launched the LRO Guide to the Discovery, featuring a collection of our best stories on Discovery 1 to D4, and everything in-between – see p106. And, on p26 you’ll find all the latest news on our Sept 19-20 Peterborough show. It’s getting more exciting every day, so make…

new land rovers will attract more road tax

From 2017, keepers of new cars emitting more than 50g/km of carbon dioxide will have to pay road tax of £140 a year, plus a £310 premium for the first five years of a vehicle’s life if it has a list price higher than £40,000 – so most new Land Rovers will attract a tax of £450 a year. In addition, the First Year Rate of tax for new vehicles will rise sharply for the most polluting variants, with larger engined Discoverys and Range Rovers most heavily hit and paying up to £2000. The announcement has been criticised openly by Jaguar Land Rover as an irrational penalty on the UK automotive industry, which is largely driven by high-end brands, including JLR. Why the change? Falling vehicle emissions will reduce the amount of VED…
