Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Turbo-diesels available in 2.5 and 2.8 litres are strong but not swift although they do give slightly better economy than the petrol units. V6 petrol units are offered in 3.0 and 3.5 forms and are livelier and quite refined, especially the 24-valve cars. Most are manuals, but there are some four speed automatics about.

Long-wheel-base is rather a handful simply because of its sheer size - the short wheelbase is more manageable. On road manners are reasonably good with a decent ride, although reactions aren't particularly quick. Off road performance is very impressive
