2017 Land Rover LR4 Release Date, News & Specs

With excellent off-road capability, a spacious interior, spacious seating for seven passengers, and high-tech features and a beautiful cabin, the 2017 Land Rover LR4 is certainly poised to be a solid choice for people looking for a luxury SUV.

Very few luxury SUVs can match the superiority of the LR4. Reputed for its serious off-roading capability and general reliability, Land Rover has been making SUVs for slightly more than 11 decades now. While it may not have started out as a luxury SUV automaker, it offered superior features and technologies popular at the time.

Back to the LR4. The vehicle comes chock full of upscale furnishings and amenities, and is primarily intended to be a replacement for the Discovery SUV. And while its price may be a major deterrent for many, its cabin swathed in rich materials, supercharged V6 engine, and a seating capacity for up to seven people indeed offers value for money.

Things even get better in terms of its prowess, and it would be imperative for buyers to ask themselves whether they really need a back-country SUV capability. Its mechanical tidbits are made up of hard-core hardware that makes it rather hefty with its weight approximated at 3 tones. With such a weight, users will find its maneuverability mediocre, and its engines thirsty.

Hopefully, if you find the LR4 ponderous, you might want to sample other SUVs in the market that offer the same level of posh and space. The first thing that comes to mind is the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. Although costly, this vehicle offers serious comfort and high-tech features.

Both the 2017 Infiniti QX60 and 2017 Acura MDX boasts of a significantly lower sticker price, but fall short in terms of interior space. Others alternatives include the Land Rover’s own 2017 Range Rover Sport, and 2017 Lexus GX 460. They might be cramped on the inside but they offer somber off-road chops.

2017 Land Rover Evoque Release Date and Info

For 2017, buyers should look forward to an unrivaled off-road ability, an available two-door body style, impressive fuel economy rating, a beautiful exterior and interior design, and an excellent handling character.

2017 Land Rover Evoque

Land Rover has a reputation for building luxurious sport-utility vehicles that offer unrivalled off-road capability. Even so, the market today comes with a plethora of alternatives that offer tons of features besides offering utility. However, the Evoque has been able to ward off the competition when the asphalt turns to dirt.

Plenty of standard equipment are available inside the Evoque as you’d expect from such a reputed brand name as Land Rover. Changes are conspicuous even for its base model. The same story is written when it comes to the engines under its hood. The overall design is unique as is still a showstopper juts as it was four years back when it debuted for the first time.

But quite frankly, not even beautiful looks counts when it comes to this segment. And with downsides such as a lack of additional powertrains, more expensive sticker price, a cramped interior, and poor rear visibility, buyers might be prompted to look elsewhere in the segment if they find the faults simply unbearable.

There are several alternatives available to check out such as the 2017 BMW X3 that comes with superior acceleration, adequate interior room, and a high-quality interior. Also, the X3 offers multiple engine choices for its buyers including a fuel-shy diesel one. The other choice we’d recommend is the high-performing, spacious, and smooth 2017 Audi Q5. Others in the segment include both the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class and the 2017 Lexus NX 200t.
