After having test driven the LR3, I was ready to be underwhelmed by the LR4. A test drive sold me, after a few weeks of ownership - love it. The LR4 is much better riding and handling than the LR3, hopefully reliability will be improved also. On road, it is gutsy, responsive and not too tippy (no more than my old 4Runner or FJ). Off road it is sick. Snow and ice are all I have had a chance to play in yet, and this thing is sticky and sure footed. Recommend the upgrade to HSE package, esp for colder climates. Have not had passengers in the 3rd row seats yet, so will see if they live up to the billing. Finally, the tax benefits of the LR4 are significant. Makes it easier on the wallet
Cold weather package ++ Nav/Infotainment/Bluetooth Phone +++ Leather Interior ++ 3 sunroofs + 5.0L Jaguar v8 Engine +++ (this thing drinks gas though, but this is a very nice engine)
Two improvements 1) Bring the diesel to the US. The rest of the world gets to enjoy the legendary LandRover diesel, why can't we? If BMW can do it.... 2) Upgrading the info screen in the instrument cluster, which displays mainly trip info, to include Nav and phone data would be great
