• EVERYONE seems to be getting in on the act of having a 4 x 4 in their inventory and now the Spanish arm of the VW group, SEAT, says it will bring a compact SUV model to the market in 2016.

  • IT'S CERTAINLY one of my favourite pick-up trucks and it seems that everyone else likes it too - Isuzu's D-Max has just been named 'Pick-up of the Year' for the second consecutive year by a commercial vehicle award scheme.

  • PERHAPS STUNG by the news of Audi adding an RS badge and high performance mechanics to its Q3 SUV, Range Rover has just announced a super model of its own, a performance focussed Evoque.

  • FAMED FOR its large 4 x 4s and the utility Wrangler series, Jeep has announced it wants to compete in the small SUV market with the new Renegade model.

  • IF TATTIES reach £500 per tonne and your grain breaks £200, then you might just be in a position to afford this, the ultimate new 4 x 4, the Bentley SUV - but you will have to order now for delivery in 2016.

  • A NEW special edition Isuzu pick-up, the D-Max Blade, has an additional £5000-worth of extras, but has a saving of £1000 had they been bought separately.

  • JUST AS Land Rover announce a couple of nifty option packs for its ubiquitous Defender range, there yet remains some uncertainty over the future of farming's favourite vehicle.

  • IT'S NAME might suggest that it is an SUV that fits in between the X3 and X5, but BMW's new X4 takes it into new territory and is the Bavarian manufacturer's first Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) for the mid-size segment.

  • WE'RE ALL getting quite used to thinking that the next generation is better - or think it is better - than the one that went before!

  • HYUNDAI'S compact SUV, the ix35, has just been revamped for this year, but don't expect big changes, for this little star has been winning too many friends (30,000 sold in the UK since its launch in 2010) and income for the manufacturer to make wholesale changes at this stage of its lifetime.
