In terms of price and luxury factor, the Audi Q7 is the LR4's closest competition, though it's opposite in almost every other measure: sleek, low, and modern in looks with little emphasis on off-road ability, but a more accessible third row.
Lexus' GX 470 is more recently updated than the LR4, and it offers many of the same strengths as the Land Rover, with trucklike ability and a boutique interior.
The Volkswagen Touareg is perhaps the middle ground between these two alternatives, with more off-road capability than the Q7, while the Porsche Cayenne turns its focus more to the road and high performance.
Mercedes-Benz's M Class can be a more efficient alternative with the ML350 Bluetec diesel, and it offers a well-executed, refined interior.
