Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 17 - 30 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

As you’d expect of a large, luxury 4×4, the Range Rover is not a cheap car to run. All the engines are thirsty – the Td6 and TDV8 both manage just 25mpg while high emissions make them costly to tax. Servicing isn’t cheap, although Land Rover customer service tends to be pretty good plus insurance is reasonable, starting at group 13 for the entry-level models with the Td6 engine.

The V8 Supercharged is very thirsty.

With its large petrol engines and a fuel consumption figure of just 21mpg, it’s no surprise that the Range Rover performs very badly on the eco front. Both the Td6 and more powerful TDV8 engines average 25mpg and emit slightly below 300g/km of CO2.

This generation Range Rover is a big improvement in reliability over the previous model, although we still hear occasional reports of problems. The material quality and engineering is quite exceptional.
