Well that's bittersweet, but it's great to hear that JLR is not completely deaf.

Well, how is Jeep doing it? How is Mercedes doing it with the GL Wagon?

I know I'll get the eyebrow raise for this...but I dont mind the way the DC100 looks, keep the 90 in production but if the people would buy it...go for it. The say there is more market research needed! Has LR ever done market design research...I mean really?

I suppose the "new" design production models are the result of their "research". Stuff like, yeah lets drive this 2013 to the bonnet in water...who would do that just for giggles? So those folks over their took the all good, added to the all bad design, and now its just crap ugly...

They took the accidental benifits of the good from older models like the 90 & 100, HSE and added them to a Ford design.
