Range Rover - best luxury cars

The mighty Range Rover was designed as an off-roader but it’s evolved into a luxury SUV of rare quality

Despite its SUV body, the Range Rover is just as comfortable as a long-distance cruiser as it is ploughing through a muddy field. Despite its imposing presence, the Range Rover is surprisingly nimble and hugely refined.

The Range Rover comes in four trim levels - the 'entry' level Vogue, the mid-range Vogue SE, the Autobiography and bespoke SV Autobiography tops the range. Engines are large in capacity, with a 3.0-litre SDV6 diesel in two outputs, a 4.4 SDV8 diesel and a 5.0 supercharged petrol V8 also available.

With the extra height the Range Rover has over its rivals, it feels truly massive in the back, especially in long wheelbase guise, and it gives a fantastic view. One downside of its sheer size though, is that it’s quite a climb up into the car.

Land Rover gives the Range Rover air-suspension that can be used to lower the body and make getting in-and-out easier, but even still, it's not quite as easy to do so as in a BMW 7 Series or Audi A8.
