Some of its newness and exclusivity may have faded, but the current Range Rover is a car to aspire to

Business Car Manager Verdict

The latest Range Rover has been on sale for a while now and has, I think, become deservedly popular, despite the price hike over the outgoing model.

Yes, some of its newness and exclusivity may have faded, but considering its size and weight, the TDV6 is impressive to drive and surprisingly frugal.

This model will get even more frugal with 2015 model year changes, which centre on engine changes, equalling an 8.5 per cent fall to 40.9 mpg and CO2 emissions which are now 182 g/km. Read more here.

For the business user, the decider is whether the Range Rover’s 32% BIK is a shameless extravagance when compared to the entry level BMW X5 sDrive 25d (25%).
