As to what you see as the LR4's top rival, it depends how you plan to use the LR4.
If what you want is a gussied-up body-on-frame SUV, the Lexus GX 460 might actually work quite well.
The Lexus doesn't ride as well, and we don't think it handles as well either, but there's a lot of appeal in its boutique interior.
In terms of pricing and luxury cachet, the Audi Q7 might be one of the LR4's closest rivals.
Although the Audi is a different kind of vehicle entirely, with a sleek, low, and modern profile, a more accessible third row, and very little emphasis on off-road ability.
The ercedes-Benz' GLE-Class can be a more efficient alternative with the GLE350 Bluetec diesel, and it offers a well-executed, refined interior.
The Volkswagen Touareg is perhaps a middle ground between these alternatives, with more off-road capability than the Q7 (though its badge is far more modest), while the Porsche Cayenne turns its focus more to the road and high performance.
