The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Land Rover LR4 is one of the few true SUVs left on the market; you'll value that if you're willing to trade off a little on-road nimbleness for uncompromised trail ability and top-notch interior comfort. The 2015 Volkswagen Touareg is expensive and fancy for a VW, but less expensive than some comparable luxury-SUV options.
