Land Rover Range Rover Interior
The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover earns praise for its opulent cabin, which auto journalists agree is constructed with top-notch materials. The Range Rover's front and back seats are well-liked for their comfort, and test drivers agree that passengers will love riding in the Range Rover’s excellent cabin.
- "The Range Rover's cabin is as elegant as a modern five-star hotel, with clean surfaces and an industrio-chic design unlike anything else on the market. All materials are first-rate, with artfully stitched leather and gorgeous wood trim." -- Edmunds
- "Though tough on the outside, the 2014 Range Rover's interior is soft and luxurious." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "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)+"Range Rover has moved the needle to yet richer and more exclusive materials and design, even as it has simplified the cabin and cockpit environment." -- The Wall Street Journal (2013)
- "The inside of this car is superb. It's a great place to spend time whether you're in the front or the back." -- Jalopnik (2013)
The Range Rover has seating for five and comes standard with leather seats, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Features on upper trims include higher-quality leather, as well as climate-controlled front seats with massage and climate-controlled rear seats. Test drivers say that the front seats are comfortable and offer a commanding view of the road. Sever test drivers comment that the headrests are especially soft, which is an uncommon compliment for any vehicle. Reviewers mention that the back seats have ample headroom for most passengers, though some note that taller passengers might find rear headroom in short supply.
- "We also love the super-high command driving position -- a traditional Range Rover strength that happily persists here." -- AutoTrader
- "Rear-seat headroom and legroom are adequate for most adults, but due to the lower roof and aerodynamic shape, tall individuals may find the rear quarters snug compared with those in the higher-ceilinged Lexus LX 570 and Mercedes GL-Class." -- Edmunds
- "Even the cloud-like headrests will make you feel like royalty." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "There's plenty of adult headroom, and legroom is adequate even behind a tall driver. Even someone stuck in the center seating position will find decent toe room, as the floor is nearly flat and the center console is scooped out at the bottom so that feet can slide under. Door openings are a bit tight and thus somewhat restrict egress." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- "The big bucket seats are comfortable on- and off-road, and the view outward is commanding." -- AutoWeek (2013)+"Headrests don't normally warrant a mention, but these were so soft they seemed stuffed with chinchilla fur." -- Los Angeles Times (2013)
The Range Rover comes standard with tri-zone climate control, navigation, front and rear parking sensors, a backup camera, Bluetooth, a 13-speaker Meridian audio system and USB ports in both rows of seats. Features available as stand-alone options and/or on higher trim levels include a surround camera system, a rear-seat entertainment system, a 19- or 29-speaker Meridian audio system, a refrigerated front center console and four-zone climate control.
Reviewers report that the touch screen that controls most audio, navigation and some climate controls is needlessly complicated, with too many steps required to perform basic functions, and illogical menus to navigate through. On the other hand, test drivers rave about the sound quality of the optional 19- and 29-speaker Meridian audio systems, saying both produce very rich sound.
- "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)
- "If you get the top level Autobiography package, do yourself a favor and check the box for the $4,450 Meridian 3D sound system. It has 29 speakers and provides one of the most incredible aural experiences you can find anywhere, not just in a car." -- Jalopnik (2013)
- "The optional 825-watt, 19-speaker Meridian surround system sounds great. I haven't heard the standard 380-watt, 13-speaker system to know if the louder option is really worth the additional $1,850 cost, but it sounds darn good in its own right." -- CNET (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)
- "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)
The Range Rover has 32.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind the back seats and 71.7 cubic feet with the back seats folded. This is less than what other luxury large SUVs offer, but many other SUVs in this price range are larger vehicles with three rows of seating. Test drivers note that while the Range Rover's cargo space is limited for the class, most find it useful for a two-row SUV. One reviewer likes the clamshell design of the rear hatch, saying it prevents you from rubbing against a dirty bumper when loading cargo. Another test driver adds that the rear seat sits a bit higher than the rest of the cargo floor when folded, which makes it difficult to load bigger cargo items. Reviewers are unimpressed with small-item storage in the cabin, saying that both glove boxes are fairly small.
- "The 2014 Range Rover's cargo area is adequate but not huge, with 32.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up and 71.7 cubic feet with the seats folded, which is significantly less than most competitors. One nice feature the Range Rover does offer is a clamshell-style rear hatch that allows you to load cargo easily without having to rub against a dusty or dirty bumper." -- Edmunds
- "Cargo room is quite good, and though the seat backs can be folded nearly flat to expand it, doing so results in a 1-inch step up from the cargo floor, which makes it more difficult to load bulky objects. 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)
