Parkers overall rating: 4.6 out of 5 4.6
  • Plenty of passenger and bootspace
  • Several storage boxes inside the car
  • Do you really want to get it muddy, though?

On the plus side, the latest generation of Range Rover is, like its illustrious forebears, spacious for up to five passengers and a load of clutter in the boot. While it's good to know it'll accomodate muddy occupants and their kit after a gruelling day of countryside pursuits, do you really want your plush interior caked with a field's-worth of earth?

No, instead think of the Range Rover as a luxury car that happens to be roomier than traditional saloons such as the BMW 7 Series, Jaguar XJ and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. At least it's capable to driving trough the mud, allowing your passengers to clamber in from a cleaner vantage point, plus the suspension can be lowered to make access to and from the car graceful.

Nevertheless, inspite of all the leather and expensive-feeling surfaces, it's an interior that's desgned to be functional as well as beautiful. Take the front cupholders, which can be slid forward to reveal a deep storage area below, plus there‚Äôs a cubby box with double-level hinged tray. A lockable glovebox provides enhanced security, and you can have this compartment cooled as an option. Front and rear door bins hold large 1.5-litre bottles - although they can be tricky to reach on the move - while long-wheelbase models get an even larger rear cubby box.

Up front passengers get two USBs, an HDMI and 12-volt connection points in the front console cubby box, plus a 12-volt socket in the glove box and a USB point in the stowage area underneath the cupholders. In the rear you get two 12-volt charging points, a domestic plug socket, and two USB and HDMI points, while the load space also houses a 12-volt and a second domestic plug socket. Long wheelbase models also get an additional USB charge point in the storage box at the rear of the centre console.

Plush yet functional boot

One of the Range Rover's best-known features is its horizontally split tailgate. It's far from the only car to have such a feature, but it's become quintisentially associated with Land Rover's flagship model. As the tailgate's opened, the rear of the car drops by 50mm by lowering the adaptive suspension. This makes it easier to load items in, or use the lower section of the taigate as a seat. Not that unlike the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, where there is an option to fit small, occasional chairs here, there's no such extra on the Range Rover. 

There's plenty of room back there with up to 900 litres of space behind the rear seats (700 if you opt for the reclining Executive Class seats) and between 1,943-2,373 litres with just the front seats in use depending on the seating package and whether you've gone for the standard- or long-wheelbase body. Folding the 60:40 split rear seats is also the work of a moment as most models have electrical controls for this function.

It's also worth noting that P400e plug-in hybrid versions have 98 litres less space behind the rear seats due to the positioning of the Range Rover's battery pack.

Fine tow car

Many Range Rovers are called into action to haul heavy loads such as horse boxes, which it can do with ease as most models can two the maximum 3,500kg limit. P400e models are restricted to 2,500kg and these aren't available with an electronically deployable foldaway towbar either.

Additionally, there's a raft of towing-related safety systems to ensure stability as well as helping you reverse into awkward spots while still hooked-up.

How safe is the Range Rover?

  • Five star Euro NCAP rating
  • Load of safety tech added for 2018
  • Driving position is high above traffic

The Range Rover SUV was awarded the maximum five stars by Euro NCAP and features myriad safety systems including a full range of airbags such as curtain, thorax, passenger and driver.

There are also many electronic systems designed to help prevent accidents whether on or off road, including a rear-view camera, lane-departure warning, emergency braking, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control and speed limiter as standard.

The Drive Pack adds a blind-spot monitor, adaptive speed limiter and traffic sign recognition. Drive Pro Pack enhances this with high speed emergency braking, blind-spot assist and lane-keep assist. The adaptive cruise control with queue assist uses a forward-looking camera and improved radar system.
