The modelRead full Range Rover review
The Range Rover has a road presence few cars can equal, along with an upmarket interior and a largely comfortable ride. The plug-in hybrid versions make great sense for company car drivers, while the entry-level D300 is the best bet if you're buying privately. Still, whichever version you go for, the Range Rover is hugely expensive and Land Rover's reliability record is a big concern.
The trimSee full equipment
This entry-level trim is very well equipped, and it’s the trim we’d stick with. You get a plush leather interior with wood veneers and luxuriously thick carpets, 20-way electrically adjustable seats, along with 21in alloys as standard (they can be swapped for 20in alloys for no cost). Adaptive cruise control with steering assist comes as standard.
The engineSee full engine specs
Our favourite engine is the D300. It's a 3.0-litre mild-hybrid straight-six diesel with 296bhp. It's smooth, super torquey so it pulls effortlessly, but when you stretch its legs and rev it out it makes haste with 0-62mph in just 6.9sec. It's fit for purpose whether you're cruising motorways, overtaking along A-roads or towing up to 3500kg. It should average in the region of 35mpg on a run if driven sensibly (less than that around town). It's also worth noting that a BMW X7 40d is quicker and will cost you less.
