4X4-sick London

17.8 per cent of vehicles in SW3, in Kensington and Chelsea, were 4x4s.

Nearby W8 was next with 17.4 per cent.

The preponderance of 4x4s in suburban areas of southern England was also shown by Guildford in Surrey, Wadhurst in Kent and Brentwood in Essex all featuring in the top 10.

Occupation-wise, those most likely to drive a 4x4 were haulage contractors, followed by bank directors, farmers and agricultural contractors.
