My Land Rover is a 4.8 v8 beast and does not hesitate to go off road, basically like all land rovers, but the best one out of the lot has to be the defender, theres no argument! yes it guzzles the fuel especially in the v8, but you are garenteed the best off road driving experience of your life. It can wade deep through water, battle its way through thick squishy mud and can climb steep hills. If you go for the station wagon model then you get the 12 seats and the chequer plate protection in the back as standard. But the slight downer when it comes to defenders is the maintaining, they dont tend to last all that long without something breaking or going wrong and thats when they become expensive to run. A standard tyre can set you back £200 and if you are a keen off roader then the heavy duty tyres can set you back up to £450. Insurance wise the defender isn't to expensive to insure, i'm 17 and because of my age that means its going to be expensive, even under somone else's name. but in the long run any 4x4 out there including a hummer doesnt even come close to the off road abillities of a defender.
