If you simply cannot choose between a tough off-road vehicle and a luxury car, the Land Rover may be an excellent choice. Like the Jeep, the Land Rover has its roots in military vehicles and its original design allowed it to tumble over all kinds of obstacles and landscapes; in fact, it was conceived originally as the British answer to the Jeep. However, British Leyland, the parent company of Jaguar, acquired the company in 1967, and the Land Rover began to take on some of the characteristics of a stylish vehicle. Modern Land Rovers can still drive through all kinds of road conditions, but they also include many features of a luxury car. Classic models, such as the Land Rover Defender, tend to resemble military trucks, but newer models have a sleek, sophisticated look. You can find a wide variety of new and used Land Rover models on eBay, from older models to the streamlined looks of the Land Rover Evoque.
