£4.75 incl tax

It's been a long time coming - but at last we've had the chance to go green laning in the new Jeep Wrangler. We pitted a long-wheelbase Rubicon against some of the roughest lanes in Yorkshire to see how it coped when the wheels started lifting - and to find out what it feels like when a Wrangler is powered by a dinky little 2.0-litre petrol engine…

Also in this issue, road tests of two vehicles that are soon to be replaced - the Subaru Forester and Mercedes GLC. With new models coming very soon, is now the time to score a bargain on clearance stock?

We've driven the new Polaris Ranger Diesel, too. And this month we bring you the story of the Anne Beadell Highway – an Outback trail so remote even the Aussies think twice about messing with it, where the only landmarks are a crashed plane and a marker from 1953 to show where an atom bomb was tested. Harsh.

We're also asking the impossible question: what's the best vehicle Land Rover ever made? And in a superb Wolf-spec Defender 90, we might just have the answer. Unless you prefer the look of the gorgeous Omega 110, of course.

We've also got the latest updates from the world of new 4x4s and the off-road scene alike – including great news about the reopening of an iconic green lane that's been shut for what seems like decades. And talking of green lanes, our Roadbook this month takes in a set of chilled-out rights of way in Wiltshire that are only open until the end of September. So don't delay - it's all in the August issue of 4x4!
