The Jeep Wrangler is sadly a bit too retro in the manner it drives too…

July 4 Stephen, the Welsh doorman at The Milestone in Kensington, has driven almost as many cars as me. Parking is tight outside the hotel, which means he’s shifted everything from Bentleys to Bugattis to avoid the traffic wardens.

Being a fisherman, he likes a 4×4 and was almost as excited about moving the Wrangler as a Rolls. His verdict? He loves the way the Jeep stands out from the crowd of SUVs, the retro look and the huge, comfortable seats.

I get all that but have to point out to Stephen that the Jeep is also ‘retro’ in the way it drives on-road. It might be cool to look at but even something from Vauxhall is more exciting to steer.

So I’m not sure Stephen will be saving his tips towards buying one of these. Besides, he has access to an old Defender that will take him home to Cardiff on Wednesday night for the biggest game in Welsh football history…
