2016 Land Rover LR4 Info – For 2016, we should expect the new and subtly redesigned Land Rover LR4 to come with a beautiful interior design, spacious seating capacity for up to seven people, high quality materials, and a spacious cargo area. Its release date should be expected sometime later this year.
Some of the novelties to expect from the redesigned LR4 include a suite of smartphone apps, standard side steps, and leather-and-wood steering wheel. By the look of things, it seems as if the Sports Utility Vehicle niche is becoming more and more crowded each passing day, however, that claim doesn’t affect the credibility associated with Land Rovers.
With their renowned ground-crunching capability, luxury, and reliability, the brand has remained as strong as they were back in the ‘70s. And despite the continued growth of the SUV market, the brand has remained a very likable choice among SUV enthusiast. The 2016 Land Rover LR4 should be expected to come with a comfortable seating arrangement for up to seven adults. Also, despite the previous notion of fuel sapping engines, the 2016 model will come with equally powerful supercharged engines than the previous V8 fuel guzzlers.
Buyers shouldn’t expect anything short of pure luxury. The cabin comes chock full of luxury materials and an unmistakable design flare that makes every driving experience a worthy adventure. On the flipside, though, the vehicle weighs three tons, therefore jeopardizing its fuel economy ratings, performance, and pavement maneuverability. As such, other nimble alternatives to consider include 2016 Aura RDX, Lexus GX 460 and Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.
