The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

Range Rovers are one of the tallest cars on the road – if you like looking down on people – and known to be comfortable long-distance cruisers. It’s certainly easy to get set-up perfectly behind the wheel. For a start, the steering wheel adjusts up and down as well as in and out electrically, and even the entry-level Vogue has 20-way powered seat adjustment, including four-way variable lumbar support and a memory function. Step up to Autobiography trim and you get a 24-way seat with a massage function.

A subjective point, depending on your build, is that you might find the seat squab doesn't angle down enough, so the leading edge presses slightly into the underside of your thighs. Otherwise, it's is soft and comfy, and aligned perfectly with the steering wheel and pedals.

Visibility, parking sensors and cameras

It’s a bit of a climb up into a Range Rover but, once you’re there, its huge windows give you a fantastic near-360 degree view. That helps you to define where the car’s extremities are, so, despite it being five metres long, you’re able to thread the Range Rover accurately down narrow lanes and into parking spaces.

Of course, the Range Rover’s key appeal is that you sit far higher from the road than you would in the vast majority of cars. Beyond the one-upmanship it means you get a fantastic view of the road ahead. A rear-view camera is standard on every model, as are front and rear parking sensors, while the options list includes a 360-degree camera system and semi-automatic parking (standard from Autobiography trim and up).

Quality

The Range Rover may be an all-conquering SUV with a taste for the wild outdoors, but don't expect its interior to appear even slightly utilitarian. In fact, car interiors don’t get much more luxurious than this; the craftsmanship is of an extremely high standard and everything you see and touch is made from top-drawer materials.

Leather seats are naturally standard with a better-quality aniline hide featured from Vogue SE trim, and there's a range of attractive veneers to complement the colour of your upholstery. So, why not five stars? Well, the X7 or Q7 might not be quite so indulgent, but their fit and finish is even better, while the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan are even more indulgent.
