With the perfect mix of luxury and off-road ruggedness, the 2010 Land Rover Range Rover is a favorite of reviewers throughout the realm of car critics. Major changes are afoot for the powertrain this year, but the exterior styling of the 2010 Land Rover Range Rover remains very close to the previous model with only subtle changes to the headlights, grille, and bumper to set it apart. Inside, the Range Rover gets an upgraded interior that looks nicer thanks to a 12-inch screen in place of the traditional gauges, as well as enhanced materials.
Cars.com notes the Range Rover's "upright grille" and "downward-sloping roof line" work together to create a blocky yet smaller-than-it-is appearance. Kelley Blue Book says the overall styling offers a refined tribute to tradition "with a polish never before seen on a Land Rover product." Edmunds agrees, calling the Land Rover Range Rover the "most elegant and distinctive utility vehicle on the market." Reviewers make note of the large alloy wheels and front fender side vents as other attractive features.
The interior also gets praise from reviewers. Edmunds calls the cabin "a mix of traditional and modern" thanks to the blend of upright seating and high-tech displays." The satin-finish wood trim and European leather, upgraded for 2010, are also cues that this is a thoroughly modern luxury vehicle. Cars.com finds the interior to be "generally outstanding," but notes some aspects seem a bit dated.
Kelley Blue Book describes the Range Rover as having "one of the most handsome interiors ever to grace an SUV," and deems the dash "automotive art." The upgrades for the 2010 model year only enhance its appeal. Car and Driver goes so far as to call it an "off-road Rolls-Royce."
