Range Rover (L405, 2012-2021) review - design

It’s as imperious as it’s ever been, even with the latest trends’ best efforts to mess it up.

Evo rating

Like its interior, not much has changed on the Range Rover since its debut in 2013. So while some of the details might come across as fussy or plasticky, the underlying design aesthetic is as timeless as its interior.

The body's sheer bulk does mean it needs some pretty hefty wheels to carry the visual mass, but keep away from the questionable body-design packages and it’s very hard to mess up the spec of a Range Rover.

What did change over the midlife update were some new lighting units that usefully sharpened its lighting signature, while reformed bumpers remain only subtly changed. Rear exhaust garnishes on non-SV models are also new, but some of a more critical demeanor might call them tasteless additions to answer to customer demands
