Found 4th Mar 2015
Not a BMW or Merc or AUDI but specs are hi and built like a tank!
180bhp 0-62 in 8 secs! and 117 co2 (19% BiK 2014/15) (better than the Tiguan offer on ere IMO)

This is a good and popular car.

You said its not merc or BWM or audi, but I did not know quite what you meant?

There are plenty of these on our fleets, the interior quality is extremely high. Good spec on all models. Well respected brand with high customer satisfaction levels.

The engines are competitive if not better then some rivals with regard BIK/C02. esp. the revised the 4 cylinder diesels.

IME (the E being important) for all the plushness there a little harsh and that can seem a bit annoying depending on the road conditions where you live.

Unlike in the Audi you wont jerk along with the auto as I believe all but the base feature a proper 6 speed automatic, not a dual clutch.

The X3 is a bit of a different beast and the X1 is really a bit of lame duck.

Things like the VW Tiguan are much blander are likely to appeal people who less choice involved. Again, only the jerky down change gearbox (DSG) on offer. Its a bit of a different appeal.

The question is, is it worth paying a little more, or even a lot more for a Discovery Sport or face lifted Evoque in which case I suspect a lot of people might!

good points well made....Volvo are more than equal to the German brands

Would sooner have one of these than a freelander 2 in a designer frock! Landrover can name them all they like but its still an old model under the skin and with landrovers legendary (un)reliability record....

Worth noting this is only the 2WD version. They was a Tiguan 4x4 with DSG lease deal doing the rounds, and also some very cheap deals on the 4x4 Skoda Scout inc. Sat Nav direct from Skoda dealers. Very well spec'd cars if you can get over the badge.

Would sooner have one of these than a freelander 2 in a designer frock! Landrover can name them all they like but its still an old model under the skin and with landrovers legendary (un)reliability record....



Really?
The Freelander 2 is based on Ford EUCD, and the Evoque uses a developed and evolved version of Ford EUCD.

Other vehicles that use EUCD include:

2007– Ford S-MAX
2007– Ford Galaxy
2007– Land Rover Freelander/LR2
2007– Ford Mondeo
2007– Volvo S80 sedan
2007– Volvo V70 station wagon
2008– Volvo XC70 compact SUV
2009– Volvo XC60 compact SUV
2010– Volvo S80L
2011– Land Rover Range Rover Evoque
2011– Volvo S60 compact executive car[3]
2011– Volvo V60 station wagon
2014– Volvo S60L
2015– Land Rover Discovery Sport (Compact SUV

So, the car in this deal is "still an old motor under the skin".

Those engines fall apart above 80k

What engines are you referring to?

I believe the platform has no relevance to engines used. The Freelander 2's used Duratorqs from Ford as does the Evoque and the Discovery Sport, the later 2 will get Jaguar Landrovers own Ingenium engine later this year.

Volvo has its own engines.

Old Freelanders back from the 90's had a number of different engines, the K Series 1.8 being a problem.

What the hell is all that nbsp
Cant read a thing

Title is misleading, as this is not the maintained price, maintenance is £256:99 ex vat.

£376 per month on 2 year and 20000 which is what the Tiguan deal was based on. Also a much higher deposit on this.

terrible car, another 4x4 or suv that a muppet who can't drive will buy. does it come with the usual 4x4 suv blindfold

Original Poster

Must be terrible all that size, torque and month long waiting list for Volvo demonstration for this model. However I've chosen not lease, plus having a clean license with HGV, Van and motorcycle must make me exempt from all 4x4's & SUV's?!
