Land Rover LR4
The LR4 is the new baby Rover. As a successor to the LR3, it is a smaller, lighter model that comes with the new, more powerful engine and a smooth 6-speed ZF gearbox—although, no supercharged version is available at the moment. The LR4 affords a third row of seating to fit a total of seven passengers (the Range Rover seats five) and has more head- and legroom, as well as more cargo space, than the more expensive Range Rover. Moreover, the LR4 incorporates Dynamic Stability Control, which works to prevent skids and spins; Terrain Response, a function that provides five manual settings designed to optimize suspension, power applications for surface conditions, and apply selective braking to maintain composure; and Hill Descent Control, which limits momentum on steep slopes. Pros: It may be the smallest Rover, but it still seats seven. Cons: Cookie-cutter exterior design.
