This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.
The 2010 Land Rover Range Rover has an impressive interior, filled with the latest high-tech features and upscale materials. According to most reviewers, if you have some rocks to crawl over, you won't find a more luxurious space to do it in than the 2010 Range Rover.
- "The Range Rover has been at the top of the luxury SUV mountain for a long time, and this year's interior upgrades promise to keep it there for the foreseeable future." -- Automobile Magazine
- "Interior materials are of high quality, and the assembly job looks first rate. The tasteful and understated cabin may look a bit more upscale outdoorsy than uptown opulent, but nothing disappoints and the wood trim adds warmth. " -- Consumer Guide
- "Meanwhile, the 2010 model -- with a variety of minor cosmetic upgrades -- is further surfeited with pounds of luxury and technology, including upgraded switchgear (with "noble" finish aluminum), leather headliner, a very nifty thin-film transistor (TFT) instrument display, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and a host of other switches, systems and continued-on-the-next-page devices." -- Los Angeles Times
As is befitting a vehicle that starts at $75,000, the Land Rover Ranger Rover has comfortable seating for up to five.
- "The seating positions are upright, as with most SUVs, with plenty of headroom and legroom for taller adults." -- Edmunds
- "Range Rover offers generous headroom and legroom, along with a commanding seating position. The seats are comfortable and supportive." -- Consumer Guide
For 2010, Land Rover upgraded the cabin technology on the Range Rover, and reviewers say it shows. The navigation system has been updated and now can be controlled with voice commands. Also, for 2010, the Range Rover's conventional gauges have been removed. Instead, vehicle information is given via an LCD display that drivers can configure to their needs.
For entertainment, the Range Rover comes with a USB port and dedicated iPod connection, available satellite and HD radio, as well as Bluetooth connectivity. Buyers can also upgrade to a 1200-watt Harman Kardon Logic 7 sound system. There's also an optional surround camera system, which gives drivers a 360-degree view of the area around the Range Rover.
But, for most reviewers, what seals the deal in the Range Rover's cabin isn't the technology, but its sumptuous materials. Leather upholstery with elegant wood trim is standard, and several reviewers have trouble remembering when they've been in an SUV with a nicer interior.
- "Land Rovers have always been full of technology, and the new Range Rover does not disappoint." -- Automobile Magazine
- "Range Rover's main gauges are "virtual" displays on a 12-inch wide screen in front of the driver. In practice, they are as easy to read as conventional dials, but on occasion the movement of the needles is a bit jerky. Most major controls use well-identified buttons and knobs that are easy to locate and use." -- Consumer Guide
- "What hasn't changed is the Range Rover's ultra-luxurious and opulent cabin. Occupants are bathed in a sea of supple leathers and rich wood trim that is as inviting as an old English wingback chair beside a crackling hearth. Leather adorns a variety of surfaces, from the seats, doors and dash, to even the headliner, if desired. " -- Edmunds
While most people buy a Range Rover for its prestige, not its hauling capabilities, the 2010 Range Rover has a decent amount of cargo space, though it offers nowhere near the space that bigger SUVs in the class do. With a total cargo capacity of 74.2 cubic feet, and 35.1 cubic feet with the back seats up, the Range Rover won't swallow a door room worth of stuff, but provides enough space for four adults and their luggage. Throughout the cabin, small item storage is good.
- "Ample room for most needs behind the rear seat, but overall cargo room isn't exceptional for the class. Interior small-item storage is good and includes dual gloveboxes and door pockets. Thirsty riders may wish the door pockets offered additional drink holders." -- Consumer Guide
- "Points are also deducted for the Range Rover's abbreviated cargo capacity of 74 cubic feet, which is a bit less than what competing vehicles offer." -- Edmunds
