Land Rover LR4 Review
Many buyers more often than not look for brands that have some bit of authenticity. While some luxury SUVs might have trouble uploaded that info on their résumé, the Land Rover LR4 and the automaker in general chocks full of it. Given the first ever Land Rover SUV to go for sale did so in 1948, the brand has arguably been tried and tested over the years. And how the same brand still calls the shots in its class a couple of decades later is an utter amusement that baffles many.
While the Land Rover LR4 enjoys such an illustrious run, the market has grown exponentially and is now a host to countless number of SUVs. But even with competition hot on its heels, the LR4 has stood its ground with its impressive spec sheet. For one, it comes with a supercharged V6 engine – unchanged from the previous model – that enables it carry its massive dimensions effortlessly. The drive quality is exemplary and although it costs significantly higher relative to its competition, it justifies its high purchase cost by way of its interior appointments, stylish exterior designs, and engine power.
We particularly love the Land Rover LR4 2017, however, one needs to carefully examine whether they actually need a back-country capability. It offers a serious off-roading capability thanks to the hard-core mechanical architecture and hardware. And all this heavy-duty equipment play a significant role in its hefty curb weight that stands at a whopping 3 tones. For those who think otherwise, there’re a couple of well-equipped and capable crossover SUVs that measure up to the LR4 capability on certain fronts and may be competitively priced.
Such rivals include the 2017 Ford Explorer, Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, Acura MDX, Lexus GX 460, and the Infiniti QX60 for 2017. While these vehicles may offer stronger brakes, better fuel efficiency, ample interior space, the new Land Rover LR4 is still a competitive vehicle that offers plenty of features for the money. We highly recommend the LR4 for people looking for a better off-road mojo.
Three trims – HSE Lux, HSE, and base – are offered for the five-passenger 2017 Land Rover LR4.
