The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Land Rover LR4 is a confident, capable off-roader with an upscale luxury interior, but it's all SUV--and it drives like it. For families who want off-road or towing ability, but not a third row of seats, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz M Class is one of the most enjoyable, secure utility-vehicle picks.
