Land Rover has announced a series of mid-life updates for its popular Freelander 2. A more powerful 190 horsepower diesel engine will be added to the range but the most surprising change is that the Freelander 2 will be available from January next year with a two-wheel drive (2WD) system, rather than the usual 4x4 transmission.

Julien Jarmoszko is 28 and has a wish list for his next car. Firstly, he needs something to cope with hiking expeditions to the Highlands in winter. It must also seat four comfortably, have decent boot space, and have a quality finish inside. Julien does a modest 5,000 miles a year, but wants cruise control, good safety features, and would love a V6 engine or something with a bit of character. He has £20,000 to spend and resale value is not an issue.

Alan Corsie wants to replace his old Honda CRV. On family trips he has three teenage children in the back, and is struggling to find any alternatives that have a decent middle seat and a flat rear floor without a transmission tunnel. The vehicle, preferably with a diesel engine, must have some 4x4 capability for occasional driving on rough tracks and over fields. Reliability is important too, and his budget is £15,000-£20,000.

Vauxhall is expanding its mid-sized Insignia range by offering its "Adaptive 4x4" all-wheel drive transmission – which features an electronically controlled rear limited slip differential - in combination with its 160 horsepower CDTi diesel engine. Previously, all-wheel drive had only been available on petrol-engined models.

Alan Corsie needs to replace his Honda CR-V. He lives in rural Perth and Kinross, which gets some snow every year – a lot this year – and his work takes him up rough farm tracks and across fields. He therefore requires four-wheel drive and good ground clearance. The vehicle also has to be the main family car at weekends, and needs to carry two adults, three children, and a dog. His budget is the trade-in value of the Honda, plus £10,000-£12,000.
