As much a rival to the Mercedes S-Class as it is a challenge to capable off-roaders like the Toyota Land Cruiser, the Range Rover is the car that other 4x4s aspire to be. It's been in production now for four decades - which has given it a serious pedigree and a loyal customer base. Comfortable, responsive and surprisingly agile on the road, it's also easily one of the most competent off-roaders on sale too. The wood, leather and metal trimmed interior is pure luxury, and rivals have a hard time matching it when to comes to the quality of the car's finish.
- Beautiful, high-quality interior
- Incredibly quiet
- Superb ride quality over the worst surfaces
- Very expensive
- Getting into the back still isn’t easy
- Touchscreen system not easy to use
Range Rover now competes with the very best luxury cars – even the likes of Rolls-Royce and Bentley, let alone Mercedes and Audi. Yet it has one trump card those don’t have – it can go anywhere! By using lightweight alumimium for the body, the Range Rover is much more fuel efficient than before, it's good to drive and overall quality and on-road refinement are suberb. Perhaps best of all, the car glides along – further proof that this is now a true luxury car. And this doesn't come at the expense of safety, with the Range Rover securing a full five-star crash safety rating from Euro NCAP.
