Which Used Land Rover Range Rover Model Is Right for Me?

What Does Land Rover's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Land Rover offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles five years old or less and with fewer than 60,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. Land Rover extends its original new-car warranty to seven years from the original sale date or 100,000 miles for certified pre-owned vehicles. Every CPO Land Rover must pass a 165-point inspection.

2016 Land Rover Range Rover Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2016 Land Rover Range Rover or 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport?

There are many similarities between the smaller 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport and its larger corporate sibling. Both vehicles feature a powerful engine lineup, a posh cabin, and spacious seating for five. The Sport, however, delivers a better ride over bumpy roads, and it has an available third row. Still, the larger Rover comes with a more abundant cargo bay, an available long-wheelbase model, and standard features that are optional in the Range Rover Sport – including a Meridian sound system and a two-speed transfer case for better off-road performance. If you can do without these extras, we recommend the more affordable Range Rover Sport. It's a better value.

Which Is Better: 2016 Land Rover Range Rover or 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE?                                      

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE is essentially the renamed version of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, which was discontinued in 2015. Like the Range Rover, the GLE's interior is sizable and comfortable. That said, the Mercedes is a superior choice. The GLE is substantially cheaper than the Range Rover, and it features a user-friendly infotainment system and extra cargo space. Unlike the Range Rover, the GLE maintains a comfortable ride over broken pavement. The GLE also has a much higher reliability score, and its base engine doesn’t feel strained like the Land Rover's.

Additionally, this Land Rover is comfortable around turns – but it isn’t very agile compared to class rivals. Rough surfaces hinder its ride quality.
