2020 Land Rover Range Rover vs. Its Competition

The Range Rover occupies a unique niche in the strata of luxury SUVs—not quite as rarified as the new models from Bentley and Rolls, yet decidedly more exclusive than the top offerings from Lexus and Lincoln, among others.

In other words, it's more of a 10-percenters car than a one-percenter's.

On the lower end of the scale is the Lexus, as well as similar competitors from Infiniti, Cadillac, and Lincoln.

These have the luxury panache, but they don't have that exclusive, old-money feel that the Range Rover emanates—and don't always have the ability to keep up off-road.

The Bentley Bentagya and Rolls Royce Cullinan represent the top end of the range rover's competition.

Exquisitely outfitted and capable off-road, these are showboats of the highest order.

Depending on how your tastes run, they may or may not be the better choice.

But they are certainly stiff competition regardless.

Perhaps the closest—and toughest—competitor is the Mercedes G-Class.

It also straddles that same no-man's land occupied by the Range Rover.

Both can also conquer trails with aplomb and hit the red carpet afterwards.
