Introduction

After researching, and buying the competition (and then having it lemon lawed), I think the LR4 is the best true off road SUV out there if you also want a bit of luxury

Why the 2012 Land Rover LR4?

Driving position & visibility

the commanding view you get it second to none. it was hard driving other SUV's that have you sit like you are in a car after being used to a rover

Feature availability

the 4x4 performance is amazing, and was the primary reason i bought this vehicle. No other vehicle, except perhaps a Range Rover, has the same wining combination of on and off road performance.

Rear seat room & comfort

Perfect family car. fold down seats that, because of the raised headline, are usable by adults. large cargo area, 3rd row a/c....

Why Not the 2012 Land Rover LR4?

Fuel economy

Horrible, and its not just the price of the pump that is the problem, its the range. City driving gives me 11-12 mpg....but despite the 23g tank specs, after the fuel warning light come, I have rarely filled my tank up more than 19 gallons....Usually after only @230-240 miles.....you will be going back to the pump frequently..,Pure freeway driving, you get up to around 17 mpg on the flats...(dont believe the computer, its always about 1.5mpg too optimistic ). If only they brought in the diesel, or had a bigger useable fuel tank....

Audio & nav systems

Nav system is very useful, but SLOW....you literally can count a second before it recognizes a command....thats painful when trying to type in a phone number or address....

Cargo capacity

the 600 optional removable tow receiver is ridiculous...hide it in the bumper like everyone else
