Four very different ways to enjoy four-wheel drive motoring in four very different cars – but what are the differences between our line-up.
Starting with the furthest first; the Range Rover SVAutobiography. The epitome of luxury 4x4 motoring has historically always been the Range Rover, and this model was Land Rover’s answer to the then forthcoming Bentley Bentayga and Rolls Royce Cullinan. Starting with the existing range topping Autobiography and taking the engine from the Sport SVR and combining the two but with added opulence, equipment and grandeur for good measure. The Range Rover SVAutobiography raised the bar for luxury and refinement and made the ability to go anywhere in any conditions just that bit more relaxing and comfortable.
Next in the line-up is the Mercedes Benz G-wagon, or G350d AMG Line Premium to be exact. The retro pseudo-military off roader has been brought right up to date by a complete overhaul of the 40-year-old design, despite initial appearances. The exterior had remained largely unchanged over the years yet this new model has rounder edges, more integrated bumpers and includes LED lighting and refined handling characteristics. The interior has seen the biggest change however with all of Mercedes’ latest technology finding its way into the cabin and displayed on the wrap around digital screen dashboard in high definition. There is fine Nappa leather, heated massage seats, Burmester sound system and so much more, yet not everything is thoroughly modern, the door locks have been specifically re-engineered to produce the same reassuring clunk upon closing and locking for nostalgic purposes. The G-wagon is a comfortable, hi-tech, modern machine wrapped in a nostalgic and retro body, probably more likely to be seen cruising the urban jungle than the actual jungle.
The third car in the line-up is Lamborghini’s exceptional Urus; the world’s first Super SUV. Part Lamborghini supercar, part luxury Grand Tourer, part accomplished off-roader, the recipe for the car shouldn’t work in theory, yet produces a masterclass in what is technically possible when combining all three. Then handling and pace is supercar fast, the interior is an example of the finest craftsmanship and attention to detail, whilst the latest technology ensures you really can use that pace whether its raining, snowing or you’ve decided to go green laning. Sophisticated four-wheel drive systems, advanced supercomputers and the largest ceramic brakes ever fitted to production car ensure that the laws of physics are only an advisory when it comes to this car. The Lamborghini Urus really appears to be all the car you’d ever need.
The last car in the line-up is the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo PDK, a length of name befitting of the extent of the specification on the car. Porsche’s ultimate executive grand tourer has been given hybrid capability to ensure this technological masterpiece is now more powerful whilst appearing eco-friendly too. It may look like a comfortable cruising machine capable of transporting four people in first class luxury, and it is, but it is also so much more. The hybrid system combining a petrol engine and electric motors means that the car produces 680 bhp, can reach 192 mph, has a 0-62 mph time of just 3.4 seconds, yet can achieve an acclaimed 94 mpg. All the while enjoying the upmost in luxury, more technology than you thought possible in a car and the finest world-renowned Porsche engineering.
