2017 Land Rover Range Rover vs. Its Competition

2017 Land Rover Range Rover
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Range Rover is nearly without rivals, at least in terms of its heritage and combination of capability and comfort.

The Lexus LX 570 may come closest since it shares its design with the Toyota Land Cruiser, a model that has long given the Range Rover a run for its money.

The LX 570 is more luxurious than the Toyota but doesn't offer near the degree of pampering the Range Rover does.

Then again, you can buy two LX 570s for the price of a Range Rover SV Autobiography.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS and G-Classes, meanwhile, offer different takes on a luxury SUV, with the GLS acting like an S-Class on stilts and the G-Class the world's most refined military vehicle.

Budget shoppers may find much to like about the Infiniti QX80, which is surprisingly polished inside and out.

But for those on the opposite end of the spectrum, only the Bentley Bentayga bests the Range Rover for comfort and panache.

Quick Specs
8.8
Few vehicles match the 2017 Range Rover's luxury and performance on pavement; fewer still can keep up with it when the pavement ends.
7.2
The 2017 BMW X5 boasts a solid set of powertrains and features that move the sedan toward the top of any list of luxury SUVs.
5.6
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.
8.6
The 2017 Bentley Bentayga is the first SUV from the automaker and is befitting the name. The Bentayga may fall closer to the Continental than it does the Mulsanne, but we're guessing most only care that it's a Bentley.
