A lot of people tend to treat the Land Rover and Range Rover names as interchangeable, but in fact the Range Rover is just one nameplate created by the brand. There are a few different versions of the Range Rover in production, but the brand also produces the Land Rover Discovery and Defender models. These premium crossovers & SUVs can sometimes be found for sale right here in San Jose, California, thanks to our collection of pre-owned luxury vehicles at San Jose Mitsubishi. Read below to learn a bit more about the different models you might find.
The most iconic member of the Land Rover lineup, and perhaps one of the most legendary luxury SUVs ever built, the Land Rover Range Rover has been around since 1969. Today it is separated into four different models on its expanded line of offerings, including the Range Rover Sport, Evoque and Velar. While the regular Range Rover is a full-size traditional SUV, the Sport is a midsize crossover, the Evoque is a compact crossover and the Velar is a slightly larger compact crossover.
Luxury vehicles like to get dirty too, and the Land Rover Defender is the perfect example of this. The vehicle is available in a number of different body styles and models – including compact, midsize and full-size variants – not to mention limited editions. Regardless, the vehicle is designed not only to deliver the premium amenities and features that have come to be expected by Range Rover fans and enthusiasts, but also impressive off-road capabilities on par with the best of them.
That brings us finally to the Land Rover Discovery, which itself is separated into two different models - the standard Discovery and the smaller Discovery Sport. Originally a traditional SUV, the 2017 model year saw the Land Rover Discovery emerge as a midsize crossover. Its little sibling, the Discovery Sport, was introduced in 2014 as a compact crossover with a similar aesthetic. Both vehicles make excellent options for drivers shopping in those segments.
