Perhaps the most widely recognised luxury car in the world is, for very good reason, the Range Rover because it is a class apart from anything else on four wheels and sets the standard for which others can only aspire. Even though it's a 4x4, very few owners will actually take this superb vehicle off the road despite it having the best in class performance over some of the worst surfaces imaginable. Whether it's on a normal road or off-road, the Range Rover is very, very quiet and the interior is stunning. Having said that, the Range Rover exploits its position and carries a premium to be a very expensive buy indeed.
Also, getting into the rear seats has never been that easy and it's still a problem for tall people in this vehicle and the touchscreen system could also be improved. But those are minor niggles because the cachet alone for owning a Range Rover means it says a lot about you. Trying to pinpoint a competitor in this range is difficult because even though it's a 4x4 its true rivals are cars such as the Mercedes S-class or even the Audi A8 and possibly the Rolls-Royce Ghost. That's because the Range Rover is really a luxury car with brilliant handling and a comfortable premium car-like ride and high quality interior.
The latest version is also much lighter than the previous incarnation which means that it is better for fuel economy, but not by much considering drivers won’t be getting much more than 37 mpg on the combined cycle. The V8 petrol version will only return around 20 mpg but the Hybrid model returns a more impressive 44 mpg and just 169g/km. The new V6 diesel is impressive, it's slightly better than the V8, which makes the Range Rover quite sprightly considering its size and weight. Get behind the wheel of a Range Rover with the V8 petrol version, which is supercharged, and you will give any sports car a run for its money.
