2019 Land Rover Range Rover

What’s new

  • New plug-in hybrid model with up to 31 miles of EV-only range
  • Part of the fourth Range Rover generation introduced for 2013


  • Excellent balance of off-road ability and luxury
  • A wealth of interior and exterior options for customizing


  • Large wheels can bring vibration and noise into the cabin at highway speeds
  • Capability means compromise, and highway steering may be too heavy for some

Which Range Rover does Edmunds recommend?

The plug-in hybrid only comes in one trim — HSE — but there are plenty of available features to make yours truly feel one of a kind. From high-end exterior paint schemes to massaging front seats, the Range Rover's options list is extensive. Given its status as the king of the hill in Land Rover's lineup, we think you should check the boxes for the Drive Pro, Park Pro and Vision Assist packages, which equip the Range Rover with the latest and greatest safety features. Heated and ventilated front seats, four-zone climate control, and a console refrigerator are all inexpensive and desirable options.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

It's not an exaggeration to say that the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover is one of the most versatile vehicles on sale today. With standard four-wheel drive, configurable traction settings and an air suspension, the Range Rover is capable of tackling muddy trails and wading through water nearly 3 feet deep. Yet it's equally able to tackle the worst of the urban jungle thanks to its cosseting cabin and high-end luxury feature. It's similar to the Range Rover Sport, but the bigger Range Rover offers increased interior room, a nicer interior, and a road presence that the Sport just can't match.

Realistically, Range Rovers will rack up more miles cruising Rodeo Drive than crawling through Joshua Tree National Park. Up until now, its beefy engines weren't exactly optimized for the low-speed city driving that most owners will experience. But new for 2019 is a plug-in hybrid variant that promises up to 31 miles of electric-only driving before the turbocharged four-cylinder joins in.

The Range Rover plug-in is the only model currently on sale for the 2019 model year. The other gasoline- and diesel-powered models you'll find on dealership lots are model-year 2018 vehicles. You can read about and shop for these models on our 2018 Land Rover Range Rover page. We'll update our review once the full line of the 2019 Range Rover becomes available.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover configurations

More information about other trim levels and powertrains will be released later this year, but for now the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover is only available in the HSE trim. This well-equipped five-passenger full-size SUV is loaded with standard features, though a few more are available in packages or as stand-alone options. The P400e's plug-in hybrid powertrain is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired to an 85-kW electric motor, driving all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Read our 2018 Land Rover Range Rover review for information about last year's model range.

Land Rover estimates the plug-in hybrid will achieve 31 miles of all-electric range before the gasoline engine kicks on. According to Land Rover, charging the 13-kWh battery takes 7.5 hours from a 10-amp supply such as the ones that power a traditional wall socket. A heavy-duty 32-amp wall box can charge the battery in 2.5 hours. The total system output is 398 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque.

Standard exterior features on the P400e HSE plug-in hybrid include 20-inch wheels, LED headlights and taillights, automatic wipers, power-folding heated and auto-dimming mirrors, a hands-free liftgate, a self-leveling air suspension with automatic height adjustment for loading and unloading, adaptive suspension dampers, a low-range transfer case, selectable terrain modes, a panoramic glass roof, keyless entry and soft-closing doors.

Inside, you'll find tri-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a heated and power-adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with wheel-mounted paddle shifters, driver-seat memory settings, 16-way heated and power-adjustable front seats (with four-way power lumbar), 60/40-split heated rear seats, leather upholstery, a navigation system, a 10-inch touchscreen, and a 19-speaker audio system with USB connectivity and satellite and HD radio. Standard safety features include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-path alert, lane departure warning, a driver-condition monitoring system and traffic sign recognition.

A number of features packages are also available. Packages with driver assistance technologies include Drive Pro, which brings adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist; Park Pro, which adds an automated parallel and perpendicular parking system; and Vision Assist, which brings automatic high beams, foglights, ambient lighting, a head-up display and a 360-degree parking camera.

Notable stand-alone options include 21-inch wheels, heated and ventilated front and rear seats, massaging front seats, four-zone climate control, faux-suede headliner, a cooler under the center armrest, a dual-screen rear entertainment system, additional wood interior trim and a tow package.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. We haven't yet driven the Range Rover with the plug-in hybrid powertrain, but we have driven a diesel-powered model of this generation. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Land Rover Range Rover HSE TD6 (turbo 3.0L V6 diesel | 8-speed automatic | AWD).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2016, the current Range Rover has received some revisions, including a revised InControl Touch Pro Duo navigation and entertainment system and the new Terrain Response 2, an automated driving mode system. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Range Rover.


The Range Rover delivers exactly what you'd expect — a quiet and mostly soft ride in a handsome but conservative package that offers ample passenger and cargo space. A tight turning radius makes it easy to park. It doesn't like to be hustled quickly through turns, though.


The Range Rover is a quiet SUV, a revelation considering its boxy design. There's a definite luxury slant to its ride character, but it could be better at filtering out sharp edges. The seats are firmer than we'd like.

Seat comfort

The well-sculpted seats offer good support but can feel firm if your shape doesn't match. Many adjustments make that unlikely, but we'd prefer more padding. The fold-down front armrests are adjustable but are also firm and narrow.

Ride comfort

The Range Rover has an odd combination of long-travel suspension softness that you'll notice when driving over bumps and a sensitivity to road surface coarseness, particularly on concrete and cracked asphalt. It's like a Buick with overinflated tires.


The Range Rover feels big inside, and once you climb aboard it offers a good view outside. The cabin is expansive, ensuring that five adults will fit easily. Most controls are easy to use.

Ease of use

The driving position is nicely adjustable, and the major controls are, for the most part, logically placed. But a lack of control knobs is annoying.

Getting in/getting out

The air suspension lowers the vehicle when parked to reduce the step-in and cargo-loading height. The doors open wide, but there are no pillar-mounted grab handles to grasp.


The Range Rover offers ample head-, legroom and shoulder room. It's a generally airy feeling front and back. Note: Despite outward appearances, the Range Rover only seats five; there is no third-row option.


The beltline is low and there's lots of glass, with a high seating position that helps the driver see down past the corners. The optional multiview camera system helps in tight quarters, and there are parking sensors front and rear.


The Range Rover HSE looks well-built inside and out, but the interior materials in particular look a bit plain and overly conservative. It's more an issue of style than quality, we suppose, but those two often go hand in hand.


The Range Rover's interior is large but follows the European design edict that states the inside of the car should be meant only for driving. As a result, it lacks many of the small storage spaces that owners of American and Asian SUVs may be used to.

Small-item storage

For such a big car, the door pockets are small and there's virtually no cubby space. All your daily knickknacks will have to fit in the glovebox and console. At least those are decently sized.

Cargo space

The cargo hold is large, and the two-piece tailgate makes it easy to cram it full because the lower half acts as a fence when the hatch is open. The back seat, however, doesn't come close to folding flat.


Land Rover's Touch Pro Duo system certainly looks amazing. But in our limited experience with it in other Land Rovers, we've found it can be a bit laggy and at times unresponsive. While the infotainment system has tons of features, it can also be overly complicated and frustrating to use.

Land Rover Range Rover vs. the competition

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

Land Rover Range Rover vs. Land Rover Range Rover Sport

The Range Rover Sport is the Range Rover's smaller, less expensive sibling. It doesn't offer all the luxury amenities or deep customization options of the full-size Range Rover, but the midsize Sport has a similar level of off-road ability. It's priced lower than its big brother and, unlike the Range Rover, the Sport can be optioned with a third row of seating.

Land Rover Range Rover vs. Land Rover Discovery

Like most Land Rovers, the Discovery can tackle light off-roading. Most Discovery trims come with three rows, though it's difficult to get into and out of the back unless you moonlight as a Cirque du Soleil contortionist. Its cabin isn't as decadent as the Range Rover's, but it also costs significantly less.

Land Rover Range Rover vs. Toyota Land Cruiser

It might seem strange comparing a Toyota to a Range Rover, but the Land Cruiser is a seriously capable off-road machine. With a locking center differential, a low-speed, off-road-oriented cruise control system and the trick KDSS system (which can disconnect the front and rear stabilizer bars), the Land Cruiser is another good choice for those looking for on-road luxury and trail-conquering performance.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Land Rover Range Rover?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
