Range Rover reviews
Considering a Range Rover? Here are all of our reviews featuring the legendary British luxury 4x4 maker.
It's fair to say Range Rover sets the standard by which other luxury and high-end 4x4 SUVs are evaluated. Range Rovers may be prestige vehicles with an abundance of passenger comforts, but they remain thoroughly off-road capable to this day.
Read our comparison reviews of each Range Rover model below.
Range Rover: A brief history
The first Range Rover was manufactured in 1970, after several years of testing, as part of the British-Leyland conglomerate that also owned sister-company Land Rover. Since the original V8 Range Rover redefined the SUV market, there have been four iterations of the Range Rover, as well as three other models introduced to the line.
A Range Rover took home the first place trophy for the car class in the maiden Paris–Dakar rally.
Did you know?The original Range Rover engineers, Gordon Bashford and Charles Spencer King, concentrated on the mechanical design of the new SUV model. When it became apparent they needed to create a body, they quickly cobbled something together. When the eventual Range Rover stylist, David Bache, came along, he liked the design so much he made only minor adjustments. The end result was the original award-winning Range Rover.
Which model should I buy?
There are four models in the Range Rover line-up. Which one will suit your requirements best?
The original Range Rover features the largest dimensions, with a gigantic 900 litres of luggage space, plus room to comfortably seat five adults. The Range Rover is a highly versatile vehicle, with a maximum towing capacity of 3,500kg, 4WD and Terrain Response plus wading depths of up to 900mm. There are two wheelbases on offer, standard and long, plus all the usual passenger comforts and equipment you'd expect on a luxury SUV.
Range Rover Sport
Range Rover pitches the Sport as a more dynamic model, which features hunkered-down styling and a selection of different powerful engine options.
Range Rover Velar
The Range Rover Velar spans the gap between the smaller Evoque and the larger Sport. The Velar has incredibly sleek styling and sits in the medium SUV segment. It's still off-roadable, but the Sport and larger Range Rover are better suited to serious terrain.
Range Rover Evoque
Available as a five-door hard-top or a three-door convertible, the Range Rover Evoque is the lowest priced Range Rover. The Evoque is a compact SUV, with a choice of petrol or diesel engines and an ultra modern interior.
