Range Rover Leasing - The Prestige SUV

Range Rover Trim Options

When it comes to deciding which of the Range Rover family is the right fit for you and your leasing requirements, things can get a little tricky. Not only have you got the choice between the three fabulous model types: the full size Range Rover, the Range Rover Sport and the Range Rover Evoque; you also have the different trim variants in each once you have decided on the right model for you.

That’s where this handy guide comes in. Here we’ll look at the three trim levels of the full size Range Rover and explore the differences between the Vogue, the Vogue SE and the stunning Autobiography. Of course, should you have any further questions, our experts are on hand to answer any questions you may have regarding your next lease agreement with Vantage Leasing.


The Vogue may be the entry level trim for full size Range Rovers but don’t let that kid you into thinking that you’re not going to get anything less than a remarkable machine for your money. This basic trim level gives you far more than many full-spec vehicles, with the following fitted as standard:

  • Eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Xenon headlamps complete with signature lighting and headlamp powerwash
  • 20” five split spoke alloy wheels
  • Terrain Response®
  • Fixed panoramic roof with power blind
  • Metallic paintwork
  • Fully adjustable, heated, power fold mirrors fitted with approach lamps
  • Laminated hydrophobic front door glass plus toughened rear door and quarter light glass

Step inside and the quality keeps on coming. The Vogue’s interior is magnificent and it truly adds to the overall driving experience as you sink into the extremely comfortable Oxford leather seats. Both front and back seats are heated and with ‘drivers memory’ you’ll never lose your optimum driving position. The Grand Black Lacquer wood finisher adds to the air of luxury and the heated leather steering wheel is fully equipped with multi-functional controls so that you can keep your eyes where they matter, on the road. Other features of the Range Rover Vogue include:

  • Keyless entry system
  • Front visual display
  • Rear view camera
  • 380W Meridian Audio System
  • Digital TV
  • Front and rear carpet mats
  • Power upper and lower trunk/tailgate

Vogue SE

Next up in our look at full size Range Rover trim levels is the Vogue SE. As you would expect from a step up in levels, the Vogue SE has all of the goodies found in the standard Vogue along with a few exciting additional features.

One of the main upgrades to be found in the Vogue SE is the Terrain Response® 2 system. This really is the brain of the new, more modern Range Rover, as it can automatically sense - and make the necessary adjustments to suit - the type of terrain upon which you are driving. It can be easy to overlook just how much work has gone into this upgrade as all of the startling technology needed to make this system work is activated merely by a simple twist of a dial. However, don’t be fooled, this is a seriously impressive piece of kit and a fantastic addition the Range Rover stable.

Just like its little brother, the Vogue SE comes with Xenon headlamps fitted as standard. However, unlike the standard Vogue, the SEs are automatic and come complete with High Beam Assist too, which takes all of the guesswork out of lighting the road ahead. Having the appropriate lighting at all times allows you to concentrate on your driving, making your journey far safer and less tiring.

Safety is a feature throughout the SE and the Intelligent Emergency Braking system along with the active seat belts do a great job of making you feel secure whilst travelling to your destination. Couple this with the remarkable Adaptive Cruise Control system complete with Queue Assist that is found inside all Vogue SEs, and you’ll find that you’ll get out of your Range Rover just as fresh as when you got in – regardless of the length of journey. It’s not just the tech that has been spruced up either; the seating in the SE also gets an overhaul too. 18-way Semi-Aniline leather seats are introduced with climate seats at the front and heated seats in the rear. Passenger memory is also added to the standard driver’s seat memory found in the Vogue and the rear bench seat has a load through facility too.

Other features of the Vogue SE include:

  • Improved audio with the 825W Meridian Surround Sound Audio System
  • Touch-screen with Dual View technology complete with a set of wireless WhiteFire® headphones
  • Configurable interior mood lighting
  • Soft door close
  • Exterior standard bumper pack


Top of the full size Range Rover trim pile is the stunning Autobiography. Equipped with everything that the Vogue and the Vogue SE boasts, it manages to go further still. Not only will you find plenty of upgraded features, you’ll also be treated to additional extras that are unique to the Autobiography range too.

Small things can make a huge difference, and some of the finishing touches that can be found on the Autobiography really do make the vehicle stand out from its peers. Things like the Autobiography signature embossed into the centre rear squab and the illuminated aluminium tread plates give this top of the range trim level a quintessential feeling of luxury.

The already fantastic seating gets yet another overhaul with the ‘Style 19’ Semi-Aniline leather seat introduced into this level. Complete with winged headrests in both the front and the rear, these seats are the epitome of comfort. The four-zone climate control will keep everybody happy too as the individual temperature controls add to the comfort levels further.

Alston headlining is available and the front and rear carpet matting in the Autobiography is elegantly edged with contrasting piping and finished with tough wearing metal corners, adding to the already luxurious interior. On the technical side, the Autobiography comes equipped with a surround camera system which makes use of five strategically placed digital cameras to assist with parking. Each time you use this feature to increase your visibility you’ll wonder how you managed without it, such is its practicality. Another handy piece of gadgetry is the blind spot monitor. A warning light is illuminated in the corresponding door mirror whenever a vehicle enters into a blind spot around your car, giving you fair warning before you begin to make a maneuverer.

The Autobiography also comes equipped with a closing vehicle sensor which picks up on any vehicle that may be approaching you quickly from the rear. The sensor alerts you to the possible danger of changing lanes in front of a fast moving vehicle, helping to keep you aware of the road around you as well as what is directly in front. Thanks to radar detectors in the rear of the Autobiography, it is not just when you are going forward that the car thinks about your safety. Reverse traffic detection will help you recognise any dangers when performing a reversing manoeuvre, even when another vehicle is approaching from either side of your Range Rover. Audible alerts are initiated as well as a visual warning symbol on the camera screen which could help to prevent collisions whilst reversing.

The exterior of the Autobiography features front fog lamps for an imposing look and the style is further complemented with ten-spoke ‘Style 101’ alloy wheels. Available in both short and long wheel base, this machine is one to remember.

Range Rover Estate Review

If you have the cash to splash, then the fourth generation Range Rover could be just the sophisticated ride you have been looking for. With improved efficiency, an innovative All-Terrain Progress Control system and an enhanced off-road ability, the most recent model of the Range Rover has a lot to offer.


Synonymous with luxury and class, the range Rover appeals to a wide range of customers each with their own needs and expectations of the SUV they purchase. Regardless of what these expectations are, the MK4 Range Rover does not disappoint. Of course, the downside to driving around in comfort and luxury is the price, but alternatives such as leasing a Range Rover, are a simple solution to this dilemma. It is now possible for anyone to cruise the streets in a Range Rover, not just the rich and famous. Although the Range Rover is a stunningly beautiful vehicle, the advanced technology has made it better than ever for off-road driving. As a result, you can expect and aesthetically pleasing SUV that is more than functional and ideal for many practical situations. Over any terrain, the Range Rover drives like a dream.

Ownership Costs

Once you have taken into consideration the price of leasing a Range Rover, you will need to think about the cost of running your amazing new SUV. Typically, these expenses include fuel, insurance and tax. The level of CO2 emissions from a car affect the amount of tax and insurance you will pay on a car, so this is important to take into consideration.

On the plus side, the MK4 Range Rover is more economical than its predecessors. On the downside, running this vehicle is going to be quite costly. The entry-level TDV6 model has a 40.9mpg combined cycle fuel figure. It also boasts a 182g/km CO2 return. The running costs are 20 percent better than those of the V8 diesel of the third generation of Range Rovers, which is predominantly due to the reduced weight of the aluminium body structure. If you really want to minimise the effects of your travel on the environment by reducing your carbon footprint, then you might want to consider the V6 diesel-electric hybrid model.

Overall, the Range Rover fares favourably in the cost of ownership stakes. This is especially the case when a direct comparison is made between the MK4 Range Rover and its main rivals, such as the BMW X5, the M50d or the Porsche Cayenne Diesel S.
