2010 Land Rover LR4 Review
All-new successor to LR3, Discovery.
The Land Rover LR4 is the newest arrival in a large market segment of luxury SUVs in the $45,000-plus class. Though not at all good at fuel economy because of its weight and complexity, the LR4 offers loads of power and torque, useable and flexible interior space, and plenty of luxury touches inside and underneath.
Jim McCraw filed this report to NewCarTestDrive.com after his test drive of the LR4 near Charter Hall, Scotland.
