The Range Rover is one of the great motoring icons, and it’s every bit as compelling a proposition today as it was when it was first introduced more than 40 years ago.

Once the choice of the landed gentry, Land Rover's most luxurious SUV now appeals to anyone looking for the finest quality, while its ability to go off road and plough across fields or deserts remains unparalleled.

The previous Range Rover (which you can read about here) abandoned the traditional truck-like chassis of its predecessor for something more car-like, and the latest version builds on that, with huge weight savings that mean performance is surprisingly brisk.

Engine options consist of two diesels (a V6 and a V8), a 2.0-litre petrol-electric hybrid, as well as a petrol V6 and a supercharged petrol V8, but in truth the latter is only for the seriously wealthy.

These days, the Range Rover may be more of a luxury car than a mud-plugger, but it’s the fact that it's a luxury car that can do some serious mud plugging that gives it a unique and broad appeal.

Read on for our in-depth impressions on what the Ranger Rover is like to live with. And don't forget to visit our New Car Buying site if you decide this is the car for you.
