The Consumer Reports Car Blog rips Land Rover’s pitch apart, noting that aside from the price, the product isn’t even that great. Consumer Reports notes:
What says practical recession-era transportation better than a $60k luxury SUV that gets 14 mpg overall and has much-worse-than-average reliability? Should things get tough, you could make a coat out of the leather seats, but there probably isn’t enough wood on the dashboard to burn to keep you warm. (Doing either would incur a damage penalty when the lease ends.)
