Land rover california is a new addition to the Land Rover family of vehicles. It offers a great opportunity for your teens to experience driving the evolution of the Land Rover brand, including the iconic Defender 90, modern Range Rover, and Discovery on more challenging terrain and under the guidance of an expert instructor.
Is Land Rover better than Jaguar?
The Discovery SUV is a compact, luxury-SUV that looks ready to tackle some off-road obstacles. It’s designed with short overhangs, large wheels and high ground clearance.
This car also offers good straight-line performance. Our test car, a P400 SE with the 3.0-liter supercharged V6, was able to get up to speed quickly and a six-speed automatic transmission shifted smoothly. It clocked a 0-to-60-mph sprint in 7.1 seconds and a quarter-mile in 15.7 seconds.
Inside, you’ll find a leather-wrapped steering wheel and aluminum paddle shifters. The dash is well-designed and features two large analog gauges with readouts for the speedometer and tachometer.
There’s also an LCD info screen that relays a variety of information, data and safety statuses. The cabin is quiet and comfortable.
We enjoyed a long drive along curvy California Route 1 north of San Francisco, where the Range Rover handled the twists and turns with ease. The rear-steer system — which comes on every model — was especially useful when making tight off-camber turns.
We recommend this car to people who want a versatile SUV with good fuel economy and off-road capabilities. It’s a great choice for those in the Torrance, Long Beach and Redondo Beach area.
