The old ones break down and are ugly, the new one is just ugly.

Is that enough?

Issue is that I'm taking up new job in an area where snow is likely to be a significant factor and I need to be mobile enough to travel the length/width of the country regularly.

Also on my list are:

AWD Volvo estate
Subaru
Toyota Hilux, maybe
Fiat Panda 4WD :D

Anything 4WD and cheap/reliable really will be considered. I have a 46 year old LR Series 2 which I can use at a push but long distance work isn't its forte :xmas-big-grin:
