Hardcore off-road credibility meets well-appointed luxury in the Vilner Land Rover Defender ($TBA). This aftermarket mod replaces the Defender's spartan interior with sport bucket seats in the front, leather everywhere, a 600-watt entertainment system with dedicated subwoofer and two LCD screens, ambient lighting, and additional sound and heat proofing — all without sacrificing the four-wheel-drive's ruggedness.

It's not all-new, but it does look new, and that's enough to make the 2012 Infiniti FX ($43,450 and up) an upgrade worth looking at. Beyond its redesigned front end, the high-end crossover also sports a new 20-inch wheel design and an update instrument cluster, while keeping the same 390hp V8 and 303hp V6 power plants, seven-speed automatic transmission, and optional Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, Bose Premium Audio system, Intelligent Cruise Control, and advanced safety features as before.
Looks like Honda's next mid-sized SUV will be quite the... looker. The 2012 Honda CR-V ($TBA) will be the fourth generation of the model, brining with it a new, longer design, a more aggressive stance, more three-dimensional vertical taillamps, more efficient engines, and improved fuel economy. Oh, and it will probably still be available with four-wheel drive. Just a guess, though.
