    Default Buying a 4WD

    We are looking into buying a brand new 4wd.
    I would love a v8 land cruiser but brand new are out of our price range
    We need a proper 4wd that can fit 6 people comfortably for long road trips. Have enough power to tow 20ft caravan and bikes.
    Is capable of doing off road adventures.
    Plus good for school runs as it will be a lady car on week days and a mans car on the weekends

    Landrover Discovery 4. 7 seater and 2 boot seats are comfortable even for adults. Seats also fold into the floor. Great for 4wding and also around town. Has great visibility with large windows. Love ours.

    I have an older model Prado and absolutely love it. It does all that you are requesting and never lets us down. Ive heard good things about the new models from friends too.

    Does it have to be brand new?
    A 100 series 4.2TD land cruiser is one of the best around, plenty of room, awesome off road ability plus built for towing. If your planning on setting it with with mods I recommend going into your 4x4 shop and including suspension/winch bar/ UHF set up also if it's going to be doing lots of off road trips look into diff locks.

    Not sure of the price but the Volvo XC90 is seven seats. I love Volvos for their ridiculous safety but can't afford one!
