Should I go for a petrol or diesel Land Rover?
I currently own a 2009 Range Rover Sport diesel and I'm looking to acquire a new Land Rover Discovery Sport. I'm not sure whether to go for diesel or petrol. Diesel has much more to offer in relation to fuel consumption but, with the demonising of diesels by the government, would a petrol version be a better buy?

Depends what you want to do with it. If you will be towing a lot or doing a high mileage of 20,000 or more a year, probably diesel. If not, petrol, either the new Ingenium 240PS or 290PS, and make sure you order a spare wheel.
