Luxury features are a bit limited when compared to Range Rover Sport SVR or Even Audi Q7 (these focus more on the looks and comfort rather than adventure). If you want to buy it for the ultimate Authentic Jeep Logo and the adventure it gets along with it. No other vehicle will stand in your mind. The Range Rover will be costing whooping 2.12 Cr for the luxury it gets, it is your choice what you want pure thrill or luxury adventure.
