These are the best spyshots yet of the forthcoming Range Rover
18 September 2008

Our spy photographers have grabbed these shots of a slightly facelifted version of the Range Rover.

Following on from the Discovery’s recent mild makoever, Land Rover is giving the Rangie a similar visual going over, with the mild disguise suggesting new headlamps, radiator grille and front bumper – with the arrival of LED tail lights at the rear. Externally, the rest of the car remains unchanged.

The Range Rover is the oldest car in Land Rover’s portfolio, having been introduced in 2001 – after being developed during BMW’s ownership of the brand. It’s already had one mild refresh and this one will take it through to 2012, when an all-new aluminium-bodied Range Rover is scheduled to arrive.

Our Verdict

The fourth-generation Range Rover is here to be judged as a luxury car as much as it is a 4x4

Who cares ? In my view, the sooner cars like this are off the roads the better. It is unneccessarily over-large, over-weight and over-greedy in fuel and resources to make and run. LandRover would be better off spending their money on bringing forward a lighter and smaller Range Rover, setting an example to all the other makers of these ghastly 4x4s and hopefully starting to make people see how pointless they are when used inappropriately in urban and soft-rural areas, maybe 80% of this country; I've no objection to 4x4s where needed but I guess that the vast majority of Range Rovers never get out of their urban home areas.

I care! The Range Rover is the most advanced and most capable luxury vehicle with its breadth of ability even after 6 years in production, it is a well known fact that IT along with many other NON-Land Rover branded SUV's use much less resource to produce than an electric hybrid of some sort and at the end of the life up to 90% of the material can be recycled. (Now say the same for all those leaky batteries we are gonna end up with if Prius's become the norm!) Right now enough of this socially acceptable rubbish, the Range Rover is a milestone and classleader that people people aspire to, I don't know of anyone who would think that of a Prius! Suggest comments deriding proper vehicles find a website like Greenpeace to blog on NOT Autocar!

I don't think I've read so much sh*t in all my life. You, sir, are talking rubbish. You don't like them ? Fair enough but who the hell are you to say that someone else's choice of car should be removed from the road when they have zero effect on you. Life and let live.

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
