[interior] fit and finish...lead[s] one to believe it was handcrafted
Kelley Blue Book

TheCarConnection.com gives the 2008 Land Rover Range Rover a perfect 10 for comfort and interior quality.

Edmunds says that the "seating position is notably upright, but both front and rear passengers will find the accommodations supportive and roomy" while riding in the Range Rover 2008. According to ForbesAutos, "five adults will find that the Range Rover's leather-clad cabin affords ample comfort"; Kelley Blue Book cautions that it "has excellent room for four passengers, though it is designed to hold five." Autoblog praises the Land Rover Range Rover's "supportive seats," which "are a treat for those staring down long stretches of bitumen." These, according to Cars.com, are available in "two grades of leather upholstery: Blenheim and Windsor," of which Windsor is the higher grade; the reviewer comments of the 2008 Land Rover Range Rover's seats that "their quality would befit any six-figure car, though the raised stitching on the inserts dug into my back at times." The 2008 Land Rover Range Rover has no third row, but "both rows of seats offer excellent legroom and headroom."

Cars.com reports "maximum cargo volume of 74.2 cubic feet"; Edmunds says this is "only average due to a high load floor." ConsumerGuide agrees, saying "overall cargo volume is tight for the class," but does note that "dual gloveboxes and large door pockets make for good interior storage."

Almost every source gives the Range Rover 2008 high marks for comfort and interior quality, with AutoWeek proclaiming that it is "barely rattled by anything the back roads can dish out." ForbesAutos gloats that one riding in the Land Rover Range Rover can "sip champagne from its exquisite leather seats while fording streams and climbing muddy grades." Kelley Blue Book says that the interior "fit and finish...lead[s] one to believe it was handcrafted." ConsumerGuide says that the "interior is premium all the way...materials used befit the Range Rover's premium pedigree."

When it comes to noise levels aboard the 2008 Land Rover Range Rover, ConsumerGuide reports that the "engine emits a refined snarl during acceleration, is inaudible otherwise. Impressively little wind or road noise for a tall SUV...virtually no coarse-surface tire thrum."

Conclusion

The 2008 Land Rover Range Rover has exceptional material quality and ample room for five adults.

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.
