Range Rovers are well known for their off-roading capabilities

Off-Road – No car can offer you Mercedes S-Class levels of luxury and Land Rover Defender levels of off-road ability but the Range Rover is the only exception. With a slew of off-road modes for various conditions like mud, ruts, snow, sand and of course All Terrain Progress Control which is like a cruise control for off-road situations (works up to 30 km/hr) and 900 mm of water wading capacity, the Range Rover can literally go anywhere while keeping occupants in the lap of luxury.

The Range Rover gets a 5-star safety rating

Safety – The Range Rover offers a slew of safety features including ABS, ESP, 360-degree surround camera, traction control, lane departure warning, traction control, multiple airbags and that tank-like build quality to keep you absolutely safe. The Range Rover has also scored top marks at Euro NCAP.

The Range Rover is one of the best luxury SUVs money can buy!

Verdict – The Range Rover is an SUV which is huge in size, features, comfort, luxury and even price. The range starts at Rs. 2.11 crores and goes all the way to Rs. 4.45 crores (our test car which is the Vogue SE costs Rs. 2.25 crores, all prices on-road Mumbai). With 10 variants on offer (3 SWB and 7 LWB), the petrol models cost more than the diesel. The diesels are more efficient than the petrols but still not what you’d call economical. The high price and equally staggering running costs seem to us a small burden for what still could be the most accomplished SUV in the world. It has set a high standard for luxury, is an effortless performer, takes you anywhere in top-notch comfort and has a brand image to die for. Simply put, the Range Rover is in a class of its own and if living life the king size is what you are after, this still remains a perfect SUV for you.

The quality of materials used and the fit and finish is truly outstanding

Testers’ Note:

“I am a huge fan of the Tata Safari specially because of the way it rides and its commanding driving position which I’ve never seen in any SUV ever. After driving the new Range Rover Vogue I fell in love once again. Typical SUV proportions, huge size, king of the road driving position and exceptional ride quality. All of that with a good dose of luxury that can go off-road too! What else do you need? You don’t even need to buy a house, just get a Range Rover LWB. Yes, I feel it is a bit overpriced otherwise it’s the best SUV on earth.” – Aariz Rizvi, Assistant Editor, MotorBeam.
“The Range Rover Vogue is just massive! I am not a fan of its driving dynamics but hey who buys a Vogue for driving pleasure? It’s more about comfort, luxury and arriving in style, in which the Range Rover excels very nicely. I particularly liked the attention to detail on offer and the acres of space in the cabin which gives the illusion of driving around with a 1 BHK flat. If you fancy travelling in the utmost comfort without compromising on style, this SUV is perfect for you” – Parth Gohil, Associate Editor, MotorBeam.
