Bringing with it a host of technological innovations, as well as the same premium, upmarket, feels that fans of this luxurious off-roader are looking for. It’s also equipped with a fine range of engines, while a fully electric version is already in the pipeline.

Here, we’re going to take a look through some of the Range Rover’s key rivals and what they have to offer.

Audi Q7

Audi’s Q7 has always been one of the Range Rover’s main rivals. It brings a similarly upmarket feel, as well as those all-important seven seats. The latest Q7 is by far the most technologically advanced to date, packing some of Audi’s most cutting-edge systems.

But it backs up this new tech with a really well-made and spacious interior. A range of engines - including s a V8 in the sporty SQ7 - means that the Q7 is likely to appeal to a variety of buyers.

Mercedes-Benz GLS

The Mercedes-Benz GLS is effectively an off-roading S-Class. As the firm’s flagship SUV, the GLS is jam-packed with features and, thanks to its enormous footprint, offers boatloads of space and practicality. Plus, it gets Merc’s latest interior, which means it’s got all manner of screens and displays for a very modern feel.

Land Rover Defender 130

That’s right, one of the Range Rover’s rivals comes from within the same Jaguar Land Rover family. The Defender 130 has only just been announced, but thanks to its eight-seater layout, it could prove tempting for those in the market for a Range Rover.

As you’d expect from a Defender, the 130 will still be hugely capable off-road thanks to a number of go-anywhere systems.

Audi A8

If you’re in the market for a Range Rover then the A8 might prove quite appealing. Though it can’t match the commanding view of the road ahead that you get from the Range Rover, it counters with superb refinement and loads of in-car features.

It’ll be particularly popular with rear-seat passengers, who can relax and stretch out in one of the best cabins in the business.

Porsche Cayenne

Porsche’s Cayenne has historically been one of the more dynamic options in the SUV segment, bringing the kind of driver involvement that you might expect from the German brand. It’s available with a range of engines and setups, but all manage to inspire huge amounts of confidence in the bends.

The Turbo S E-Hybrid variant is particularly potent thanks to its combination of electric motor and turbocharged V8 engine.


The X7 is one of the newest additions to BMW’s range of SUVs. It’s the largest in the line-up, in fact, and aims to capture some of the high-end feel that you get from the 7 Series but in a raised-up layout.

It’s a huge thing to see in the metal, too, while its super-large kidney grille is bound to get heads turning wherever the X7 goes.
