What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For It's a luxurious motor with lots of off-road ability

Against Reliability is poor, they're dear to buy and run and the diesel engines are slow

Verdict An amazing blend of abilities, but it’ll cost you

Go for… 4.0 V8

Avoid… 4.6 HSE

Land Rover Range Rover 4x4
  • 1. The diesels return just 27.5mpg, and you’ll struggle to see much more than 20mpg from any petrol engine
  • 2. Misfires in the engine can be double trouble, as they may also damage the catalytic converter
  • 3. The air suspension rides well and ensures the Range Rover doesn’t suffer from the floaty feeling you can get in some 4x4s
  • 4. The suspension is a common cause of complaint, and there was a recall for some cars for cracking suspension components
  • 5. The ride height can be raised and lowered to cope with changing conditions off-road, which is very handy
