Review

If you're after supreme comfort, masses of passenger space, a lovely interior and a smooth and powerful engine, the sumptuous Range Rover will do it all. However, we think the entry-level D300 diesel Vogue is all you really need, with maybe a few choice options, or the P400e plug-in hybrid if you're a company car buyer looking to save on tax. That's because the cheaper Audi Q7 and BMW X7 are at least as good in most respects, and the top-end versions of the Range Rover are just too expensive unless money really is no object. In which case, why not have a look at the Bentley Bentayga. Just be aware that Land Rover's reliability record is pretty shocking.

Entry-level Vogue trim has plenty of kit, so we'd recommend sticking with it. You get Windsor leather seats, 20-way electrically adjustable and heated seats in the front, a heated electrically adjustable steering wheel, three-zone climate control, walnut veneer, keyless entry, a gesture-controlled powered tailgate, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, power-folding door mirrors, a fixed panoramic glass roof, adaptive LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, cruise control, a twin 10.0in-screen infotainment system that incorporates a DAB radio, digital TV, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, sat-nav, wifi and Meridian sound system. What more do you really need?  and . It's tempting, but we'd go up one trim level to Vogue SE to get a little more luxury.

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 hast with 0-62mph in just 7.4sec. 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 an X7 40d is faster and will cost you less.
