    The Motoring Week: Wednesday Nov 10th

    Tuesday November 8th:

    Here is a car that we collected today that will probably sneak in under the radar but we reckon is pretty significant. This is another 2wd SUV, but this time it is a Hyundai Santa Fe and it comes with a new 2.0-litre diesel engine with 150hp and Band D emissions. Plus, it costs €33,495 and that makes it brilliant value if you want a seven-seater SUV.

    Hyundai Santa Fe: Now from €33,495

    Monday November 7th:

    Spent the day in Barcelona for the launch of the new front-wheel drive Land Rover Freelander, which is the company finally showing that you don’t really need 4wd in half of the vehicles they sell and that by removing this heavy addition you can save a whole lot of fuel and a lot of CO2. At €29,995 for the new model it will start to worry the likes of the Nissan Qashqai because the badge still carries a lot of weight.
