Expert Quotes:

They don't get any nicer than this. Or more loaded.
Motor Trend

Expect to find all manner of leather coverings inside the opulent cabin of a Range Rover.

The elevated view of the squared-off hood is perfect for off-roading, which is probably only slightly more likely to occur than one of these winding up at a weekend autocross.
Car and Driver

The Range Rover's high seating position and abundance of glass provide lighthouse attendant levels of visibility, while the power-adjustable front seats are a Recaro-meets-La-Z-Boy mix of capable and comfortable.

And if you're not touching leather, you're touching wood -- up to 14 pieces of premium satin black and natural wood trim finishes that complement the rich surroundings.

As you'd expect, passenger comfort and available space is very good inside the Range Rover. There's no third-row seat available, however.

The five-seat layout may not fit every buyer's every need, but the families and others who need and want a Range Rover will find some very supportive front seats, upholstered in beautifully stitched leather, with wood paneling surrounding them and their feet cushioned by thick carpeting. The details are exquisitely subdued and look rugged but plush. The rear seat's more than usable for three adults, too, and those passengers get their own climate controls.

The Range Rover's cargo space, though, is a little on the small side for the class, especially for its long wheelbase and particularly, its gargantuan, nearly 6000-pound curb weight (think fast: that's three first-gen Miatas). Most owners won't mind, since the rear seats fold down for the occasional hauling duty these machines are put through. Small-item storage is better, too, with bins and cupholders galore in front.

The highest achievement of the Range Rover is in its fit, finish and quality. The assembly is so good, you might think each one is handmade, though it isn't. Noise levels are very low, with a touch of V-8 engine burble and very little wind and road noise intrude on the luxe atmosphere.

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.
