The Autobiography trim is also available on the non-supercharged version of the Land Rover Range Rover for those looking for comfort and utility over performance. The largest, most powerful, and most expensive Range Rover since the pedigree was introduced 40 years ago, the Autobiography comes awash in baby-soft, hand-fitted, semi-aniline leathers from its fascia to a full headliner. Woods and lacquers show Steinway finishes. Wheels and grilles are lifted way beyond the mundane by descriptors such as “diamond-turned” and “titanium-painted.” No wonder those designing Brits who build this incredible hulk of luxurious all-terrain machinery prefer to call the Range Rover a car rather than something as blue collar as sport utility vehicle. Beyond the grandeur, the apical Range Rover has every form of automatic load-leveling, hill-descending, torque-monitoring, terrain-responding, and brake-applying technology known to the off-road industry.
Pros: Noting that Range Rover shares its initials with Rolls-Royce should not be considered pretentious.
Cons: Exterior design is nothing to write home about.
