It’s always good to get out the office and sometimes I can’t resist the lure of driving around the Cotswolds testing out new cars. This week I spent some time at the launch of several new motors from Jaguar and Land Rover at the Olde Bell in Hurley, near Maidenhead. These will be on sale in 2016
I’m going to be reporting on the launch for my blog Tech Digest in the next couple of days, particularly around the in car tech. But suffice to say that I was particularly impressed with the new Evoque – a car that I’ve always associated with Footballers’ Wives.
Of course it comes with a lot of tech onboard, but what impressed me most was the handling of the car around the muddy pot-hole ridden Cotswolds villages. A really smooth ride.
Next year also sees the launch of the new Evoque convertible which you can see me pictured in above. Sadly I didn’t get to drive this (it’s a pre-production sample) but I would imagine it will go down very well with the Cheshire set!
