The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
One of the few true SUVs left on the market, the 2016 Land Rover LR4 offers uncompromised off-road ability at the cost of on-road handling and fuel economy. Expensive and fancy for a vehicle from a mainstream brand, the 2016 Volkswagen Touareg is also less expensive than some comparable luxury-SUV options.
