    Get the Disco. It's got 7 ultimately comfortable seats, it's incredibly spacious and drives like a dream both on and off-road.

    After thinking about it I think you best bet is going with a Ford S-Max Turbo. Fast, stylish and 7 seats.

    Why change a SUV to a SUV? And what? a Q7 which wasn't even launch for like 1 year? god....

    Well, assuming you did not tell bout your mom's current SUV.

    Criteria = Big, Expensive, Ridiculous, Seats 7, Flourishes nearby plantations with CO2 (Hey, SUVs save trees right?)

    Audi Q7, because it ain't as ugly as the GL, ain't as monstrous as the R-Class.

    Seats 5? Range Rover no doubt.

    The problem for them with the S-Max is that it's not expensive or snobby enough.

    Worse for them. If they want to spent a lot of money for what basically is a useless wasteful car, instead of having something that's much better and a lot cheaper... what can I say...?

    The Discovery is an excellent choice. A person of 6ft 4 can easily and very comfortably sit in the very rear seats. Shame the interior is a little too utilitarian but it's not bad at all, just won't be quite up there with the Audi's. Also shame about the engines. The TDV6 is really rather slow and the V8 drinks way too much. Anyone know if a Discovery3 TDV8 is on the way?

    Tell her to get a cheap used ford focus and use the rest of the money to get homeless people to lick her boots and beg. It seems like all your looking for is how to spend your money to feel better than other people anyways.

    The Range Rover is the perfect blend of both... space and quality.

    This may sound hypocritical coming from me, but, don't you think that post was a little pointless?
    If you look at the things they need it for I think they have a point. 7 seats for when grandparents are over, which seems to be often, AWD for when it's icy and when the going gets tough and BOOTSPACE. Focus has none of these, although my friends Dad's Focus has all the bootspace in the world, quite literally. The boot opens itself all the time and Ford can't seem to fix it.

    Yes, but, minus the extra seats. Don't you reckon a Disco TDV8 would go well in the market? I mean, all it's rivals only have V6 Diesels, it'd be a cut above the rest.

    apparently the ford developed discovery platfrom has advantages over the more expensive BMW developed rangerover platform. Maybe if LR put the s/c V8 and TDV8 into the disco to soon it would steal sales from the range rover and rangerover sport.
