Despite being on sale since 1970, the Range Rover is only in its fourth generation, having matured slowly over the past 45 years.

The first model, known as the Range Rover Classic, was a utilitarian vehicle which sat in stark contrast to the luxury SUV it has grown to become. Early versions only had two doors, and all were based on a ladder chassis with coil springs, unlike the leaf springs used by the company’s Series Land Rovers.

Second generation cars, introduced in 1994, laid the groundwork for the Range Rover’s move upmarket with more equipment and premium materials. This desire to attract luxury buyers was realised in the 2002 third gen which looked less rugged and more like a status symbol.
