The interior layout, fit and finish

Land Rover Range Rover 4x4 driving position

Range Rovers are known as comfortable long-distance cruisers, and it’s easy to get comfortable behind the wheel. The steering wheel adjusts up and down as well as in and out, and even the entry-level model gets front seats that have 20-way adjustment and four-way lumbar, along with a memory for the driver’s seat position.

Land Rover Range Rover 4x4 visibility

You need to clamber up into a Range Rover, but once you’re there that height gives you a commanding view of the road ahead. What’s more surprising is how quickly you become aware of the car’s extremities; even in something measuring five metres long, you’re able to place the Range Rover accurately in narrow situations and tight parking manoeuvres.

To further assist with this, a rear-view camera is standard on all editions, as are front and rear parking sensors, and the options list includes a 360deg camera system and even automatic parking.

Land Rover Range Rover 4x4 infotainment

All Range Rovers get a pair of 10.0in touchscreens; one where you’d expect it to be, towards the top of the dashboard, and the other below it, just in front of the gear selector. This second screen is the one that you use to access the air conditioning and off-road modes, but you can also operate the multimedia system while the main screen displays the navigation.

This set-up provides a minimalist look to the interior that’s certainly appealing, plus the graphics are sharp and there’s only some occasional lag when you select something. But while the menus prove easy enough to navigate when you’re stationary, the lower screen can be distracting to use on the move.

It’s also disappointing that neither Android Auto nor Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring is available. There is a free app from Land Rover that gives you a certain amount of smartphone connectivity, but we find it a bit slow and cumbersome to use.

Land Rover Range Rover 4x4 build quality

The Range Rover may be an SUV, but you shouldn’t expect its interior to appear even slightly rugged. In fact, car interiors don’t get more luxurious than this; the craftsmanship is of an extremely high standard and everything you see and touch is absolutely first-rate.

Even entry-level Vogue edition gets Oxford leather seats, while the Vogue SE and Autobiography get an even higher-quality, semi-aniline leather finish.
