Scorecard

Interior: 8.0

Test drivers say the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover has a swanky cabin fitted with top-notch materials, including some of the plushest leather available in a vehicle. The seats in front and back are roomy and comfortable. The touch-screen infotainment system is complicated to use, but the Meridian audio systems have exceptional sound quality. The Range Rover has less overall cargo room than many rivals, but its hands-free liftgate and power-folding rear seats make it useful for hauling loads.

  • "Step inside the 2016 Range Rover and you'll know you spent your (considerable) money well. If there is leather better than this, good luck finding it. If there is stitching better than this, don't ask us who does it." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "… the Td6 still includes everything you'd expect from a Range Rover, including acres of leather and high quality materials throughout." -- Left Lane News
  • "The Range Rover's cabin is as elegant as the penthouse suite at a chic hotel, with a half-industrial, half-posh vibe that's unlike anything else on the market. All materials are first-rate, with artfully stitched leather and gorgeous wood trim." -- Edmunds
  • "Interiors don't get much nicer than this. Virtually every surface is either padded with leather or covered with wood or bright trim." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

Seating

There are seats for five in the 2016 Range Rover, and leather upholstery, 12-way power-adjustable front seats, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel are standard. Optional features include 22-way power-adjustable seats, ventilated and massaging front seats, power-adjustable rear seats, heated, ventilated and massaging rear seats, and power rear sunshades. The long-wheelbase model is available with 24-way power-adjustable rear seats and rear footrests, and it adds more than 7 inches of rear-seat legroom compared to the standard-wheelbase model.

The Range Rover's front seats are spacious and comfortable and offer excellent visibility of the road ahead. The rear seats have ample legroom for all but the tallest passengers, who will enjoy the extra space offered by the long-wheelbase model.

  • "Front-seat passengers have ample room, and rear legroom is generous even in the regular-wheelbase versions. The Executive Class Seating means a full-length center console that divides the rear into individual seats with recline and massage functions." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Rear seat headroom and legroom are certainly adequate in standard-wheelbase Range Rovers, but tall passengers may find the rear quarters a bit less palatial than, well, their palaces. That's where the long-wheelbase Range Rover comes in. With more than 7 inches of extra rear legroom and additional seatback recline, even NBA centers can relax and enjoy the ride." -- Edmunds
  • "We also love the super-high command driving position -- a traditional Range Rover strength that happily persists here." -- AutoTrader (2015)
  • "The big bucket seats are comfortable on- and off-road, and the view outward is commanding." -- AutoWeek (2013)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover include tri-zone automatic climate control, a 13-speaker Meridian audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth, a USB port, navigation, an 8-inch touch screen, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors and InControl Remote, which lets you control some vehicle functions from your smartphone.

Optional features include quad-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof, a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system, 19- or 29-speaker Meridian audio systems, a Wi-Fi hot spot, head-up display, a 360-degree camera system, adaptive cruise control, automatic parallel park assist, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.

The touch screen can be slow to respond to inputs, has cumbersome menus and overcomplicates adjusting some climate and audio controls. The standard and optional Meridian audio systems have impressive sound quality.

  • "While you can't go wrong with any of the Meridian audio systems, we're partial to the 29-speaker version, mainly because we'd greatly enjoy telling our friends that we have 29 speakers parked in the driveway." -- Edmunds
  • "Unfortunately, the mechanics of the Range Rover's interior left something to be desired. The touch screen for the navigation and infotainment system was slow and onerous, with counterintuitive menus and commands." -- Los Angeles Times (2013)
  • "As is now the norm with luxury vehicles, adjusting the audio and climate controls can be confusing. The 8-inch dashboard screen absorbs nearly all audio functions, and too many that should be simple require multiple steps. Climate-system controls are mostly separate, but mode and some minor functions are controlled through the screen, and that likewise makes them harder to change." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
  • "Audio and navigation features are among those consolidated to an 8-inch touch-screen in the middle of the dashboard. The screen responds quickly to most commands, but it slows down when you enter an address into the navigation system." -- Cars.com (2013)

Cargo

The 2016 Range Rover has 32.1 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seats in use and 71.7 cubic feet with them folded. Most rival luxury large SUVs offer more overall cargo room than the Range Rover, but they also have three rows of seats. The long-wheelbase Range Rover has 32.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rears seats and 82.8 cubic feet of overall cargo room.

A hands-free power liftgate is standard and power-folding rear seats are optional. Both features make the Range Rover a convenient cargo hauler. There's plenty of room behind the seats for several people's luggage, though small-item storage in the cabin is limited.

  • "We do appreciate the clamshell-style rear hatch with its twin power-operated sections, now more convenient thanks to hands-free operation (anyone with the key fob on their person can open the tailgate by waving their foot under the corner of the vehicle). We're also impressed by the way the Intelligent Seat Cargo Mode saves you from having to slide the front seats forward before powering the rear seatbacks down." -- Edmunds
  • "Cabin storage could be better. It consists of upper and lower gloveboxes (both rather small), a small but deep console box, two covered cupholders in the console and two in a fold-down rear armrest, and map pockets." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
  • "Two rows of seats hold up to five passengers, and there's still plenty of cargo room in back for luggage." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013)
