The 2008 Land Rover Range Rover is a classically handsome SUV that earns high praise from reviewers around the car world, who admire its mix of the rugged and the luxurious.
According to Cars.com, the Range Rover 2008 features "an upright grille, flanked by standard high-intensity-discharge headlights...a downward-sloping roofline, side vents in the front fenders, rocker panel moldings and standard 19-inch alloy wheels with low-profile tires." Buyers can (and probably will) upgrade to the 20-inch wheels, which are standard on the 2008 Land Rover Range Rover HSE trim. Kelley Blue Book reports that the Land Rover Range Rover's overall styling pays tribute to tradition while offering somewhat more refinement: "the Range Rover was defined by its boxy, upright greenhouse and short front and rear overhangs. The Land Rover Range Rover continues this theme but with a polish never before seen on a Land Rover product," confirming Edmund's description of the Range Rover 2008 as the "most elegant and distinctive utility vehicle on the market."
The interior of the Land Rover Range Rover is as finely crafted as the outside; simulated burl walnut is standard, but real wood is available as an option. The genuine leather seats even feature piping in a contrasting color; Kelley Blue Book says it has "one of the most handsome interiors ever to grace an SUV." Cars.com considers that the interior of the Range Rover 2008 to be "generally outstanding," but adds that "some major features are starting to show their age." Edmunds says the "cabin design is a mix of traditional and modern" with the Land Rover Range Rover's "upright seating position, blocky dash and large steering wheel evok[ing] the feeling of an old-school Land Rover," while the "firm leather seats," "walnut inlays," and high-tech gadgetry "assure you that this is indeed a contemporary luxury vehicle."
Beyond this, there have been few changes in the 2008 Land Rover Range Rover. TheCarConnection.com notes relatively few reviews of this vehicle that do not rely on material from previous years' models; ConsumerGuide confirms this, stating that "sources see no major near-term changes for Range Rover."
