Luxury four-wheel drives aren’t a new phenomenon by any means. In fact, Range Rover created the segment decades ago, and while it had things its way for quite a while, it was soon that other manufacturers caught on and decided that they wanted a piece of the pie, too.
It seems inconceivable now, but back in the late ’60s, the idea of both luxury and capability being present in one vehicle was nothing more than an ideal. Now, every manufacturer wants to get in on the action. And it’s not just BMW, Mercedes-Benz or Audi either. The list of Bentley, Aston Martin, Maserati, Rolls-Royce, Ferrari, Porsche, and Lamborghini grows all the time.
But then you could argue that the current flagship Range Rover is the S-Class of the SUV segment, as much a luxury limousine as an off-road warrior. While you could argue, that all of the manufacturers listed above have tried to capture the bespoke, high-quality attention to detail you experience when you sit inside the cabin of a Range Rover, few have managed to execute it, even at twice the price.
Refreshingly, our 2023 Range Rover Autobiography P530 is precisely doing that. It strikes the perfect balance between luxury and performance. Whether cruising city streets or tackling off-road adventures, it guarantees an exceptional driving experience without compromising style.
It is also very lean on the options list. Fitted with over £35,000 worth of optional extras over a standard Autobiography car, it’s a great place to be in, and with 24” Urban UC-6 wheels, it looks the part, too.
Whether you are into luxury SUVs or not, there’s no other car that can do what this Range Rover does with the same all-around ability and accomplishment.
