I have never laughed so hard. Talk about missing the point!

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

My own feeling is that the high JLR have experienced is about to start its decline. The new Defender should be a low cost (for JLR) rugged replacement which avoids electronic toys and gizmos, following the ethos of the original, but meeting all the cuurent specs for sales in the various countries. I hope its not going to be another luxury gizmo packed Chelsea tractor. I myself sold my 2017 gizmo packed VW for a much older Jimny which is our main transport. I love the simplicity of the Jimny and the fact that in the unlikely event it does go wrong I can fix it. So far its been 100% reliable which is more than could be said for the VW, which enjoyed turning on sensor fail light every 6 months. Be interesting to see what JLR put out, but I suspect its not going to replace my Series 2 Landy soon.

It goes against everything a proper Landy should be, affordable, tough and repairable with gaffer tape and a lump hammer. Unfortunately I've no doubt it will be a huge success amongst those looking for a lifestyle SUV with proper offroading credentials. JLR will rake the money in, but it won't be from people buying them as workhorses.
