Road Test: 2016 Lincoln MKX, Iain Shankland, Road-Test.org

2016 Lincoln MKX – Road Test

Every now and then there’s a mix-up when I go to pick up my test vehicle. It happens rarely, but sometimes I go to get one vehicle, but end up with a completely different one. Such was the case with the Lincoln MKX. We’ll call this a happy accident, because there’s an extremely slim possibility (ok, ZERO) that I’d have taken the time to book one for a week – but I’d have missed out on one fantastic vehicle.

2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport – Road Test

I really love the look of the 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport (all-new in 2015) – not to be confused with the LR4 or Evoque! When I saw it at the auto show last February I expected it to be expensive, but not so… I asked my wife what she thought the price was – she’s really good at getting the price within $1,000 in 99% of vehicles. “Considering it’s a Land Rover: $80-100k” OK, but what do you think it should cost? “I think $60-80,000 would be acceptable with the options and trim level” How ‘bout $50k the way it’s kitted out? Eyes bug out – I think she’s rather impressed!! But what about after a week – will we still be enamoured with it?

2012 Range Rover Evoque – Road Test

Range Rover and Land Rover are world-renowned for their tough, go-anywhere prowess and in some cases incredible reliability. From drug dealers to Rap stars to Royal families – this is the quintessential vehicle brand that defines status, yet at the same time it is used around the world as a work-horse on farms, estates and in the U.K. it’s the go-to vehicle for towing horses and other farm animals. The Range Rover Evoque is brand new and nothing like any other Range Rover or Land Rover ever built.

2010 Volvo XC60 3.2 AWD – Road Test

It’s been a while since I’ve driven a Volvo CUV, so when the opportunity came up to take the all-new XC60 for a week I jumped at the chance. I’d eyeballed the XC60 from the moment I spotted it at the auto show last year and every time I saw one on the road it grabbed my attention right away. It’s definitely one of the best looking CUV’s on the road at the moment – but what’s it like to live with on a day to day basis?
