2016 Land Rover LR4 Review

2016 Land Rover LR4 Review

In our remix-obsessed culture, it's reassuring to come across something that's managed to endure the ebb and flow of fashion, and stay true to the qualities that have made it such an appealing part of the cultural landscape for so many years. I'm talking, of course, about the 2016 Land Rover LR4, the luxury box that defies convention by remaining wholly dedicated to the brand's original SUV formula.

Don't take that the wrong way. Although the term 'old-school' has increasingly become one of endearment, the Land Rover LR4 is no mere anachronism left to wither on the showroom floor.

Land Rover software bug causes doors to open on their own

You're driving along and all is well until you turn and your door swings open -- a door you're sure was firmly shut when you got in the car. Such is a potential problem some Range Rover owners are facing due to a software bug that may cause the doors unlatch on their own. A door opening without warning could distract the driver and cause a wreck, could result in property damage, or could on the extreme end of things cause a passenger who isn't wearing a seat belt to fall out of the vehicle.

Jaguar: customers aren’t cargo, won’t make self-driving cars

Jaguar: customers aren’t cargo, won’t make self-driving cars

While some car makers are scrambling to make cars smarter, perhaps even to the point of being able to drive themselves, at least one is putting hard limits to what technology will be able to do. At least according to its R&D head. Wolfgang Epple, Jaguar Land Rover's research and development chief, might come off as anti-robot, but his reasoning pretty much appeals to human emotion. The company doesn't consider its customers as cargo so they aren't interested in developing a robot that just delivers them from one point to another.
