STYLING | 9 out of 10
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.
No wonder the Range Rover has moved beyond mere sport/utility rig. It's a vehicular icon.
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.
Looking at the Range Rover is like looking at a modernized bit of the past: you can see the heritage, the hard-scrabbling, bush-whacking Defender in its spirit, but it's transformed through a lens of urban civility and stylish luxury.
The slab sides couple with hidden curves to deliver a look that's as at home in the forest as it is downtown. Large alloy wheels and front fender side vents are eye-catching visual cues.
Last year's upgrades to the interior materials pushes the cabin's style even further into hyperluxury territory, with high-quality metal, wood, and soft-touch plastics throughout.
The Range Rover is so luxurious, in fact, that it inspires many comparisons to Rolls-Royce or Bentley interior quality and feel.The technology in the instrument panel and center stack, often a jarring contrast to the old-world look of a luxury interior, is instead a complement, adding a dash of modern appeal as well as bringing lots of useful information to the driver.
The 2011 Land Rover Range Rover offers the look and feel of true luxury inside and out.
