The Land Rover Range Rover has a history of luxury, and the redesign in 1999 brings this even further. While the price is high, the lists of standard features are in excess, and for the buyer that wants luxury for the dollar, this is a pretty good trade for all the bells and whistles. The Land Rover Range Rover's new makeover includes a stronger engine, sleek interior, and a lot of engineering to smooth out the ride while still offering off-road capabilities with an automatic transmission.

The 1999 Land Rover Range Rover gets a somewhat understated design as it comes in seven standard color options: Altai silver, Chawton white, and Oxford blue. There are options for factory specialized paints as well. Other standard exterior features for this 1999 Range Rover include rear window defroster, roof rack, 16-inch alloy wheels, and more.

The 1999 Land Rover Range Rover has standard interior luxuries like leather seating and burled walnut trim. Other standard features include automatic climate control with pollen filtration, 10-way adjustable and heated front seats, and a sunroof to name a few of the great standard features. The interior also sports plenty of cargo space for the average family.

Overall, the standard interior is complete luxury to such an extent that options aren't even available.
Performance & Handling
With the standard traction control and anti-lock brake system, the Land Rover Range Rover handles well. The new engine upgrade includes a new induction system, new engine sensors, and an ignition and fuel management system from the popular and well-decorated Bosch. The Range Rover can tow 6500 pounds on the highway or 7700 pounds when put into low range gears. With the option of a four-liter or 4.6-liter engine, the amount of power is up to the buyer. The larger, stronger, and heavier Range Rover HSE provides incredible off-road abilities.
The Land Rover Range Rover comes standard with safety features like a four-wheel anti-lock brake system, fog lights, and child door locks. Also standard with the Range Rover are driver's side and passenger's side airbags, an updated traction control system, and an anti-theft system. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not done any extensive crash testing on the Land Rover Range Rover.
