    Essentially I need something rugged and compact - do a lot of driving down narrow, potholed country lanes.

    Quite like the look of the Jeep Renegade; don't know what jeep reliability is like but price is good.

    Used to like the Discovery but I've got a feeling they've got ridiculously big like all the others.

    Anyone recommend a decent compact 4x4?
    I spent a number of months looking around to replace my Rav 4 and eventually got a new one. Business edition, all upgrades, diesel.

    Brilliant car, but people seem to keep giving me the ****** sign as I pass them alot.

    Looks alright that.

    Even got a proper spare wheel like the old school 4x4s.

    Sure I'd notice a lack of performance compared to my Rav though.

    Yes, you would. But not necessarily when it comes to proper off road driving.
    You're awesome! Get yourself a t-shirt.

    Used to like those. I think production stopped about 15 years ago though.
