Range Rover

(2013 - present)

The Range Rover is the flagship SUV model from Land Rover, and is separate to smaller models that share its name (Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar and Range Rover Evoque). The current model made its debut at the 2012 Paris motor show and went on sale in the UK in late 2012.

Although an SUV and very capable off-road, the Range Rover is also viewed as a luxury car alongside traditional prestige saloons from the likes of Mercedes-Benz and BMW. And as the luxury SUV market has boomed in recent years, it now also faces challenges from more expensive luxury brands like Bentley and Rolls-Royce.

The Range Rover has received almost universally positive scores from the UK automotive media. It gets particular praise for its ability to combine off-road ability, practicality and opulence into a single package. However, like most Land Rover models, it is criticised for numerous reliability and quality faults that buyers should not expect to have to put up with.
