The Land Rover is a classic SUV, and with a range of different models on offer there’s an option for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a mid-range vehicle for your family or seeking a hi-tech model with all the latest gadgets, there’s a Land Rover or Range Rover with your name on it. Find out which Land Rover is the right one for you with our simple guide.

- Range Rover Sport: the perfect combination of power, agility and all-terrain capability
- Range Rover Evoque: a versatile and fuel-efficient model with hi-tech innovations

Match your lifestyle
Which Land Rover you choose will depend on how you plan to use it. Do you want a reliable and spacious vehicle to do the school run each day, or a hardy 4×4 to drive off-road? It’s important to select a Land Rover or Range Rover that will suit your lifestyle, so that you get the best from your chosen model’s features and strengths.
Best for space: Land Rover Discovery Sport. This roomy vehicle can fit up to five adults and two children as well as loads of luggage, so it’s the perfect choice for getting away with your family.
Best for power: Land Rover Defender. A rugged workhorse boasting a powerful engine, any incarnation of the classic Land Rover Defender will suit you if you are planning on hauling heavy loads.
Second hand Land Rovers start from around £4,000, while a top-of-the-range Range Rover Vogue SE straight out of the factory could set you back over £80,000. So, the amount of cash in your pocket is likely to be a big factor in which Land Rover you choose. Because Land Rovers are reliable vehicles that tend to retain their value when purchased pre-loved, there’s a booming second-hand market. But buying new will get you the latest technological developments and an enviable luxury model.
Best budget buy: Check out your local approved Land Rover dealer for a range of second hand Land Rover models.
Best for fuel economy: Range Rover Evoque. With fuel-saving technology and reduced CO2 emissions, the new eD4 2WD is the model to choose for a fuel-efficient drive.
