• BACK IN the day when the Subaru Impreza seemingly reigned supreme in the rally circuit and was used as a car of choice for those of nefarious intent escaping the polis, the other side of the business was providing a safe, reliable and go anywhere estate car favoured by the likes of vets, rural reps and farmers.

  • WHAT'S BEST - the Range Rover Vogue or the Range Rover Sport?

  • IT MIGHT just be the most exclusive pick-up truck on the planet and a farmer's dream - a Ferrari 412 conversion!

  • 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.
