Range Rover 3.0 TDV6 Vogue SE 2017 review
Land Rover’s flagship SUV gains new semi-autonomous safety technology and an even plusher interior
Let’s be honest, there’s not a lot about the Range Rover that needs improving. It’s still the consummate luxury SUV – a master of all trades that offers those who can afford its expensive price tag a comfortable, spacious and exclusive way to cross countries and continents. Almost explicitly and by design, it’s all the car you’re likely to need.That said, the current car has not yet been a five-star contender in anything near standard form. It’s painfully close, but the fact is that there are cheaper large plush SUVs out there, not to mention a plethora of luxury models such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series and Audi A8 saloons to contend with.Land Rover’s annual updates to the Range Rover line-up continue to bring fresh features, and for 2017 the Range Rover gets a raft of new driver assistance systems, including an intelligent speed limiter which can automatically lower its speed to the posted limit. Other new features include a driver attention monitor and a blind spot assistance system that can steer the car back into its lane. There’s also a new SVAutobiograpy Dynamic model, which we drove back in January.Here we’re driving the entry-level TDV6 diesel version in mid-range Vogue SE specification. Already, our car commands a price tag of more than £83,500, but thanks to a seemingly endless options list, which on our car includes a panoramic sunroof, 21in alloys, park assistance, a head-up display, surround-view camera system and electrically deployable tow bar, the final list price comes to an eye-watering £97,565.
