Range Rover

(2022 - present)

    Summary


    The Range Rover is the flagship model in the Land Rover 4×4 line-up, a position it has held since the first model was launched more than 50 years ago.

    The latest version shown here is the fifth-generation model, which reached UK roads in the first half of 2022 and replaced the model that had been on sale since 2013.

    Available with a range of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid powertrain options, the new Range Rover is more spacious, with a larger cabin and boot. It is also available in a seven-seat configuration for the first time.

    The latest Range Rover has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from the British media. Many reviewers claim that it is the new benchmark for luxury SUVs, with overall qualities that exceed even the substantially more expensive Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Top Gear, for example, says that it is “cleverly conceived, intelligently engineered and breathtakingly well designed”.

    What Car? describes it as the “undisputed off-road king in the luxury SUV class”, while Parkers says that the Range Rover “has taken great strides over the outgoing car”, thanks to its “opulent” and tech-laden interior.

    Carbuyer states that the Range Rover is “uncharacteristically manoeuvrable around urban areas”, while Car adds that the fifth-generation Range Rover is pretty “easy on the eye”, and feels rewarding to drive.

    That said, this impressive package comes at a steep price. Prices start at around the six-figure mark, which is significantly higher than the pricing for the old model, and running costs are still quite high overall. In addition, those interested in purchasing an all-electric version of the Range Rover will have to wait until 2024.

    As of June 2022, the fifth-generation Range Rover holds an outstanding Expert Rating of 90%, based on ten reviews published by UK media sources. To date, the reviews do not yet cover the plug-in hybrid models, so this score may well increase or decrease in coming months as more reviews conducted on UK roads are published.

    Reliability rating

    MotorEasy logo 600x167

    Being a brand-new model, we don’t have enough reliability data on the Range Rover to generate a reliability rating. However, it’s fair to say that previous Range Rovers (and pretty much all Land Rovers, for that matter) have a fairly lamentable record for reliability.

    The Car Expert’s reliability score is provided to us exclusively from warranty data from our partner, MotorEasy. As soon as MotorEasy has sufficient data on the Range Rover, we’ll publish the score here.
