The Range Rover was first introduced in the UK in 1970 – although more luxurious than the Land Rover of the day it was a relatively basic ‘utilitarian’ off road car.

The Range Rover was first introduced in the UK in 1970 – although more luxurious than the Land Rover of the day it was a relatively basic ‘utilitarian’ off road car. More suited to carrying sheep, with its 3 doors, vinyl seats and manual transmission - than cruising the streets of Chelsea.

It was sometime later that Land Rover capitalised on the potential of the Range Rover as a premium vehicle developing it into a premium sports utility vehicle at home on the country estate and motorway.

There have been three generations of Range Rover from 1970 – 1995, 1995 – 2002 with the latest generation being introduced in 2002.

We tested the Range Rover TDV8 Vogue SE back to back with the Mercedes Benz GL 420 CDI in rural Northumberland.
