How Does the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Compare to Other SUVs?
The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover has few competitors based on its size and price. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class comes close to competing with its available diesel engine, as does the Porsche Cayenne with a broad engine range including a diesel option.

All 2017 Range Rover models come with full-time four-wheel drive, an eight-speed automatic transmission with a knob gear selector and air suspension. Significant standard features include leather upholstery and wood interior trim, heated front seats, roll stability control, and two dashboard screens – a 12.3-inch display for the instrument cluster and a 10.2-inch touchscreen in the middle of the dash. Keeping with new vehicle requirements, every Range Rover includes front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.
Significant available features include Terrain Response 2 Auto – which can automatically adjust vehicle settings when moving as conditions dictate – forward collision warning with automatic braking, a panoramic glass roof, power side steps, power-reclining and massaging rear seats, a backseat entertainment system with two 8-inch screens, front and rear cooled storage bins, 360-degree cameras and an automated parking system.
Should I Buy the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover?
Since the Land Rover Range Rover is a luxury SUV, the decision to buy comes down to the individual's perception of the brand. If you have the cash for a posh, costly status symbol, the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover could be for you.
While it is undeniably a status symbol, the Land Rover Range Rover does boast engine and performance features that deliver. It's as comfortable as the brand name suggests, and it comes with impressive – although under-utilized – off-road capability. Those looking for a status symbol complete with comfort and power will find their match in the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover, provided they're OK shelling out a large sum for the brand-name status.
