The Modern 4X4
These days we are seeing more and more four wheel drive vehicles being drive round by the wealthy women of this country, often with screaming children in the back, or a well groomed poodle sitting obediently on back seat. The 4x4s of the past, now old aged and withered unless kept untouched in a museum behind a pathetic red piece of rope, with a small gold plated sign dangling from it could, in the past he been categorised as the British farmyard vehicle. However as the mini cooper is often referred to as iconic, or the Nissan Micra as downright camp, the modern land rover discovery 3, or the latest Toyota land cruiser can no longer be correctly labelled as the farmers main means of transport, instead they are often used for school runs by the wealthier mums or for the well of architect to travel from place to place.

Upon arrival at the show room the excitable children are predictably wowed by the BMW X5’s impressive yet unnecessarily complicated iDrive system, or the Mercedes Benz M class’s high tech Linguatronic voice control.
