2010 LR4 Base
I love my LR4! It has more get-up even at high speeds. My MPG is the same as my 06-LR3 (+/- 18 & 26); I put ~25k miles per year on the vehicle, because I don't get tired of driving it. I have taken it off road with great results. Newer electronics are a big advancement over my 06-LR3. Once you get used to the logic routines the voice commands and steering wheel features are great. The nav & phone are significantly better. Interior appointments are different but up to standard for luxury vehicle. you don't feel what you are pulling. Third row seating is handy and non-intrusive to the space available, and easily converted into flat space to haul large items.
Getting used to the 'logic routines' associated with the electronics can be frustrating. Some of the exterior distinctive features were not carried over from LR3, eg. wheel cowling, etc.; Interior left out some nice amenities like convenient cup holders. Did not like the way the dealership forced color and appointment options into packages and also forced to have only ONE corporate system to deal with in the area. No competition once you identify the vehicle you want. 'Take it or leave it' attitude.
I love my vehicle! I don't get fatigued or have back pain even when driving for 10-12 hours a day on long trips. It has very nice features, lots of space, conversion from space to seating very easy. Off road confidence, passing power, maneuverability, and safety features are great. It is the nicest most versatile vehicle I have ever owned.
