Land Rover's dual-view screen (also seen in the new Jag XJ) means the passenger can watch TV or a DVD, while the driver can see only the navigation system. Clever stuff.

It uses Parallax Barrier technology, hiding or revealing columns of pixels from the left- or right-hand view of the screen. But that's not it it's still a touchscreen system, which has been updated to make it easier and quicker to use.

Our verdict
Seven years on from this model's launch, the Range Rover still manages to compete with the best luxury cars on offer, but with added cool and an ability to take your luxury pretty much anywhere. Sure, this still isn't an environmentalist's car of choice, but for someone with cash to splash on something extra special, it's in a class of its own.

The ultimate go anywhere luxury car.
