The Range Rover family has been updated for the Indian car market and this 2018 MY update sees the iconic SUV get quite a few updates. We’ve driven the car but not a variant that’s coming here anytime soon. Still, you can read up to know what to expect in the future and here is the link.
We’ve told you all about the car, attended the launch and given you all the prices and well, now here are the highs and lows of why you should buy one.
What’s good about it?
Presence, presence and more of it. That’s the USP of a Range Rover and when you are buying the automaker’s flagship country house on four wheels there’s no dearth of the same at all. In addition you get a whole host of luxury trappings (even in the base model) decorated in large swathes of wood, shiny plastics and much leather. Oh wait, there’s more as this is a Range Rover which means that it’s superbly capable off-road and has been fitted with all the mud-plugging toys one would expect in a car of this size and stature.
What’s not so good?
There’s no option for seven seats. While that’s not really a big issue, we feel that if you can buy a car in this price category, there’s a high chance you would have an entourage of pets or body guards (possibly both) and having a third row would make it much easier for them to travel with you. It’s not a wholly convincing argument but when you want the whole gang to travel in a group, having the option of a third row really helps.
