    Interesting article. However, from a European perspective I do not - and never did - see the comparision between Hummer and LR as very valid.

    For us - well, for me and the people I know - Hummer was a bling bling brand (with the possible exception of H1) whilst Land Rover was/is Land Rover. Meaning: Range, Evoque, Freelander - also but not limeted to - for the bling bling bridage, Disco for family man and Defender for farmer, military, utility etc.

    To me Land Rover is closer to Chevy/GMC/Caddy series of 4x4's and luxury SUV's, a working vehicle at heart, and yes there is an old SIII on my driveway.
