The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.8
5.6

TCC’s Bottom Line

Few vehicles match the 2017 Range Rover's luxury and performance on pavement; fewer still can keep up with it when the pavement ends. A Mercedes-Benz G-Class isn't a logical buy, but that's just why it has endured so long. Not everyone wants an economical sedan, after all.
