Introduction

What Car? says...

Over the past 50 years, the Range Rover has come a long way from the original two-door model that first claimed to be adding a dose of luxury to the SUV market. After all, that was designed so that you could hose the mud out of its interior, which is certainly not something we’d recommend doing with this latest model.

The debate rumbles on as to whether the Range Rover really was the first luxury SUV, but it certainly took a while for any European brand to create something that could rival Britain’s finest.

Today, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to truly luxurious SUVs – the highest and most exclusive rungs of the ladder are occupied by the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan, while the less expensive (but let's face it still expensive) Audi Q7 and BMW X7 sit a little lower down.

The Range Rover range spans all of them, so it's entirely possible you could be weighing up an entry-level version against a top-spec Q7 or the long-wheelbase Autobiography model against a Bentayga.

Now, the Range Rover may look more black tie than green wellies, but its designers have moved mountains to ensure that it can still trot up mountains. This all-terrain agility comes despite serious efforts to make it more car-like than ever on the open road, where, Land Rover wisely acknowledges, the majority of owners will spend most of their time.

Read on through this comprehensive Range Rover review, which covers everything from how it drives to how spacious it is inside. We’ll also point out the best engine and trim to go for, and compare it with rivals, including the Audi Q7Bentley BentaygaBMW X7 and Rolls-Royce Cullinan.

After that, if you’re tempted to put one on your sweeping gravel drive you could save a small fortune on a Range Rover or any new car, all without any need to haggle, simply by using our New Car Buying service., where you'll find great prices on new Land Rovers.
