Head to Head, better than X5
By Kat-LA on
2005 Land Rover LR3 HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
Loved my X5 over past 5 yrs but too many trips to service so went with fully loaded LR3. LUV this vehicle! Incredibly fun to drive, great features. Only had it 6 days and can't wait to learn all the gadgets. Terrain system far superior to the new Range Rover, and thus LR3 a better vehicle IMO.
3rd row, Navigation (better than user- friendly x5 version) lots of room to hold antique hunting finds! Refrigerator in center console! Handles going over curbs with ease. Nice height when driving. 3rd row deserves a second mention!
Study the premium seats in the X5 and copy them as my legs start to ache on long trips. Any way to improve the gas mileage?? No complaints really-- outstanding vehicle.
