Range Rover Vogue

The Range Rover Vogue may be the basic level of Range Rover trim, but this is still an expensive car and you get plenty of kit for your money. That means the Range Rover comes fitted with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, Xenon headlamps (with bright LED daytime running lights), cruise control, a rear parking camera, a powerful Meridan sound system, sat-nav, Bluetooth phone connection, climate control, and 20-inch alloy wheels.

The Range Rover just oozes luxury, but then it should if you're paying at least £75,000 for a car. The current generation of the Range Rover is an attractive-looking thing and the interior is awash with high-grade materials. There's a lot of tech on board, which can be seen from the massive standard equipment list. In fact, if you're just looking for a classy SUV, there should be very little to persuade you to pay more for an Autobiography model.

The 3.0-litre TDV6 Range Rover is the entry-level engine, but you wouldn't think it was, due to its size. Still, the 3.0-litre diesel engine will be more than quick enough for most and offers relatively decent fuel economy. It's also quiet enough not to upset the peaceful environment found inside. The larger 4.4-litre SDV8 is quicker but thirstier, so it's almost completely unecessary in the grand scheme of things.

Good points

The 3.0-litre diesel gives you the full Range Rover experience, but is the cheapest model to buy and the cheapest to run.When Land Rover developed the original Range Rover it was meant to offer the luxury of a premium saloon, combined with the ability to tackle tough off road conditions. The new car continues this tradition by having a luxurious cabin and plenty of kit, while also getting all the latest off-road gubbins aimed at keeping you moving no matter the weather.The new Range Rover is also quite fun to drive; bearing in mind this is a large SUV not a sports car.

Bad points

The Range Rover comes loaded with kit, but it does cost significantly more than rivals such as the Mercedes S-Class and Jaguar XJ. Also, while Land Rover has made impressive steps forwards in terms of economy and emissions, the Range Rover can’t compete with conventional luxury saloons on this front.Another sticking point is rear legroom, which falls behind that of conventional rivals, although opting for the more expensive long-wheelbase Autobiography version would solve this problem. These negatives mostly come as a result of the Range Rover being an SUV and none of the competition can compete with its off-road ability.

Our choice

The 3.0-litre TDV6 gives the Range Rover Vogue a surprising turn of speed, reasonable economy for such a large SUV, and is also the cheapest model to buy.
