Loved my previous 2005 and 2008 LR3s. This is the best of all. Smoother, much quieter, significantly more powerful. Speeding ticket within 3 hours of ownership! Outside facelift is a huge improvement, much classier looking, head/taillights, grille. Inside, overall much nicer and higher quality except a few pieces, better leather, inside of doors is a huge improvement. Miss the old headrests with the handles on them, adjustable headrests should be better, but love the old handles. Off road is amazing, love climbing boulders in this thing. No significant problems in any of the 3 LRs. Gas mileage is a little worse than previous LR3s. Sound system is improved somewhat, nav also...both are fine.
Power, smoothness, quietness. Solid, excellent quality materials. Great out on the town and more fun climbing rocks. Third row fits 6-2 adults. Keyless entry/start. Quirky looks. Reliability. Safety! At 20 mph got rear-ended by 40 mph Fit. Totaled Fit, $3k cosmetic damage to LR4. All ok.
Bring back the headrest handles! More wheel options. Lose 500 pounds. Diesel option. Modernize sound system.
