Which used Land Rover Range Rover 4x4 should I buy?
A big car needs a big engine, but the Range Rover's smallest, a 2.5-litre turbodiesel from BMW, just isn't big enough to haul around two-and-a-half tonnes of luxury 4x4. We'd avoid this sluggish TD model unless you want fuel economy above all else.
On the other hand, assuming that if you can afford a Range Rover in the first place, fuelling it won't be a problem, we'd recommend the 4.0-litre V8, and preferably the version from October 1999 (V-reg), which had more pulling power. The 4.6 V8 brings an obvious boost in performance without any effect on the fuel economy.
