Expert Quotes:

The one sour note we experienced was the longer-than-normal delay when switching between satellite radio stations, a complaint we seem to have with all Land Rover and Jaguar vehicles that share the same infotainment architecture.
Autoblog

Land Rovers have always been full of technology, and the new Range Rover does not disappoint.
Automobile Magazine

This old-world English luxury contrasts with the decidedly modern thin-film dash display, which presents essential driver and vehicle information through graphics and virtual gauges.
Edmunds

Designers have also chosen to install Apple iPads into the back of the driver’s and front passenger’s headrests. Other special items include the yacht-style teak floor in the trunk, Kalahari wood veneers on the door tops and custom 20-inch wheels.
Motor Authority

The touch-screen navigation system is fairly easy to use, but it does have a steeper learning curve than others.

The 2012 Land Rover Range Rover doesn't want for luxury features, though sometimes the operation of its more advanced entertainment system can be confusing and slow.

Among the standard equipment is a power tilt-and-slide sunroof; leather upholstery and wood trim; heated front and rear seats; Bluetooth; LED interior lighting; a 720-watt harman/kardon audio system with 14 speakers, satellite radio hardware, a USB port and iPod connectivity, and a six-disc CD changer; and a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel. The interior can also be upgraded with a wide range of finishes and materials.

Every Range Rover also comes with a navigation system controlled via a 12-inch TFT touchscreen. The system can respond somewhat slowly to inputs--something we've noticed in Jaguar systems as well--and on some screens, the immense amount of information displayed from the vehicle's infotainment and driving systems can be a little overwhelming. The look is high-tech and captivating in that way, but the functionality could use another rev or two.

As before, the Range Rover comes in HSE and Supercharged versions. An Autobiography package tops the lineup, and takes the equipment into the stratosphere along with the price, which checks in at $170,000.


Conclusion

The Range Rover could be more user-friendly, but it has some stunning standard luxury features.

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.
