Land Rover’s Range Rover remains the brand’s flagship luxury SUV, with a range of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid versions that will be joined by an electric model in 2024. Currently offered as a seven-seater but it is like a long wheelbase version. , with interiors ranging from wool to leather and accessories such as pet packs and televisions, there is a piece of British luxury to suit all tastes and all four levels are available. It’s expensive to buy and expensive to run because the smallest diesel engine still has six cylinders, weighs two tons, is complicated with a four-wheel drive system… and has a record of poor reliability. . We will be tempted to stick to the electric type, which will save you at least money and fuel. Meanwhile, the plug-in hybrid is good for up to 25 kilometers on electricity, but you’ll be lucky … However, that’s against the Bentley Bentayga, BMW X7, Volvo XC90 and Mercedes-Benz GLS, there is none. will be easy on your wallet. 

Land Rover has worked on weight reduction and thus improved the fuel economy to about 30 mpg for the most powerful engine. It is estimated that 75% of plug-in hybrid owners will drive their cars in electric mode almost all the time. Finally, value for money is different from ‘cheap’, so is the Range Rover worth the bargain? If you’ve got the money, then as unabashed fans of art and luxury, we’re going to say it.

Land Rover has an abysmal reliability record, with owners reporting numerous mechanical and software issues with its models and those of sister brand Jaguar in recent years. He finished 22 out of 29 on the 2021 driver’s license test and finished bottom of the pile on the reliability test last season. It finished bottom of another list last year in Which Car? trust survey of 16,000 owners. Land Rover can’t seem to grasp the nettle, but we live in hope because everyone loves the brand and wants to own one. We haven’t seen many gripes about the Range Rover, perhaps just because they don’t have many. New electricity generation in 2024 offers the best hope for recovery.

With one of the longest seats in any car, an all-around amazing ride, and a huge bonnet in front of you, the Range Rover feels, unabashedly, like a car. very safe to ride. There’s plenty of safety equipment fitted as standard, including surround airbags, seat belt warning, adaptive cruise control, blind spot warning and, given its on-road capability, an astonishing level of traction and slippery properties, as well as amazing water circulation. depth, if you fall into the river. One safety feature you might not be used to seeing in a car is a Covid barrier. Range Rover’s new air purification system prevents viruses and bacteria such as SAR and Covid-19 from entering the cabin. Apparently it’s 99 percent effective, and works through, um, something related to nanoes and radicals.

Speakers and head protectors that work as noise canceling work to keep the body cool in the new Range Rover. Wellness is the order of the day here, and casual massage services now include a hot stone setting. The doors close smoothly with the trim level up, and the split tailgate is tight, so everyone’s sweating. Even the seven-seater model gets third-floor lighting and bespoke storage for the sixth and seventh seats. Air suspension is standard and creates much of the luxury feel of this plush SUV. We are never disturbed by the bumps in the road or the shouts of other road users – we move slowly, in a sea of ​​calmness. Even going out on this wild road makes you nervous. Just press a few buttons and let the car take care of the rest. Not every Range Rover driver will take pride and joy in mudslinging, but it should be an important part of ownership, if he is to admit to the skill behind the wheel. a.

Unsurprisingly, Land Rover’s pinnacle of engineering and design has a host of great features, including a sleek curved touchscreen with haptic feedback that feels like you’re pressing a button on it. There is a TV next to the DAB radio (the second trim level gives you a split screen for the passenger to watch while the car is moving), attractive graphics in the form of a neutral color scheme and connectivity wireless phone. Alexa and Spotify are built into the car, and there’s wireless phone charging. Meridian’s signature sound system features 35 speakers, including in the trunk and center console, for incredible surround sound support. The rather jazzy-sounding ‘tailgate event suite’ includes a seat in the trunk when the rear tailgate folds, so you can see Johnny and his polo pony in comfort, and the bottom bar is raised to give files. There is also a remote parking lot to get the car in a tight parking space before entering. Land Rover has also researched new materials, so in addition to leather and wood, there is wool and even ceramics to make the door and front of the car look matte. There are 30 colors to choose from for your ambient lighting and you can specify touch screen controls for the rear passengers, something buyers of the long wheelbase model will certainly appreciate. There’s a cup holder, armrest and port for the occupants, and you can choose to pay for a front fridge, which has room for four wine glasses, or a drawing table. on wood and chrome on the back that falls in the middle of the restaurant. chair.

This new Range Rover is amazing to drive. Thanks to the new four-wheel drive, it has the same turning circle as the Mini Country, which is a blessed help in the car park and if you push a little faster, the car turns on very well. Steering is finger light and even the 350D diesel version manages to rocket off the line, with incredible acceleration. At the time of writing, engine options include a three-liter diesel with three different power levels, a three-liter gasoline with two power outputs, a 4.4-liter V8, and a plug-in gasoline engine with two different power outputs. We didn’t test the twin-turbocharged V8 petrol version, but it’s apparently ridiculously quick, although it’s also quite thirsty. If you want to get a heavy SUV out of the fire before everyone else is your bag, this is the one for you. But the suspension is perhaps the funniest on this car. It has a Rolls-Royce waftability about it, adapting to road conditions before you see them, keeping you out of any kerfuffle but giving you a sense of the altitude you’re driving. How they tolerate certain emotions while keeping others from dying is a mystery. And because this car has so much power on the road, the whole experience is great.
