How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

Its bones still recall the same rock-ready mountain goat that debuted more than 40 years ago, but inside and out, it bears the hallmarks of English ambition and taste for life's finer pleasures.

Edmunds »

No wonder the Range Rover has moved beyond mere sport/utility rig. It's a vehicular icon.

Motor Trend »

I don't think that will hurt its chances among luxury buyers, though, who will appreciate its decidedly British appearance versus the somewhat clunky looks of a Mercedes GL or the generic Lexus LX.

The seats look the part, too, with intricate detailing and dark contrasting piping that set off the gorgeous cream thrones.

Car and Driver »

Its upright grille and vertical slabs of sheetmetal accentuate its towering presence, as the rest of the lines move backward in a perfectly parallel manner.

The Basics:

Though it lacks the precision and raw power of its German counterparts, and the American offerings have more room, the Land Rover Range Rover remains one of the most luxurious, most competent on- and off-road SUVs available.

Slab-sided and yet sleek, the Range Rover marries its classic heritage with modern style for a unique, eye-catching, and instantly recognizable look.

Whether you're cruising the boulevard or climbing the Rubicon, the Land Rover Range Rover is more than up to the task. It's one of the few truly capable off-road luxury SUVs, and perhaps the very best.

It's also very good inside, where comfort and quality meet to form what many consider a cabin to rival the Rolls-Royces and Bentleys of the world.

Likewise, safety is a priority. Despite the absence of crash test data from the IIHS or NHTSA, the standard safety package is enough to recommend its security in an accident. Upgrade with the optional extras, and you'll feel even better.

As you'd expect from a luxury SUV in this price range, there are plenty of features, and plenty of ways to choose them. High-tech doesn't even begin to describe the available equipment in the latest Range Rover--in some ways, it's a rolling supercomputer.

What you won't get with the Range Rover is a peaceful, easy feeling when it comes time to fill 'er up: this is a large, powerful, and heavy machine, and it drinks its fill accordingly.

Likes:

  • Serious off-road capability
  • Strong powertrain
  • Luxurious cabin materials
  • Supple, quiet ride
  • Bold styling

Dislikes:

  • No third-row seating
  • Fuel efficiency
  • Non-intuitive controls
  • Poor mechanical reputation
