As per the title.

Just bought a new Family vehicle.

We have saved up for a few years and time came to make a choice.

We are getting a Corris Grey Range Rover Velar P250 SE

I really wanted Air Suspension but not in budget.

Congrats! It will give you many years of great service. 10 years and 160k miles later I'm still in love with my LR3/Disco3 as much as I was when I got it. Comfortable, safe, great off road and in the snow, and dependable. Post pics! The haters haven't owned one.

Not sure what that has to do with our purchase of a new Family car!😁

But no we are unlikely to go for our usual Month maybe a week or 10 days but to be honest there is only a small chance.

I hope it will be more reliable than my Jaguar XJL, but that would not be a hugely difficult task.

This is a vehicle we have been planning and saving to buy for several years and we expect to keep it for a minimum of 5/6 years.

Will be extending the Warranty for sure.

Jaguar/Land Rover Assist cover included with official warranty which is worth its weight in gold as when you have a break down they provide an equivalent vehicle straight away.
