2009 Land Rover Range Rover vs. Its Competition

2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

BMW's X5 has a third-row seat and a V-8 version.

The military-spec Mercedes-Benz G-Class is just as upright and can be nearly as plush.

The Lexus LX 570 is essentially a trimmed-out Toyota Land Cruiser, and off-road performance is equal, if not superior, to that of the Range Rover—but the LX 570 is a bit more conservative and lacks the personality of the other vehicles.

The Cadillac Escalade is more of an on-road vehicle, but it's flashier in an urban (or urbane) way.

However, none of the vehicles listed quite match the Range Rover’s savoir faire.
