Height of luxury SUVs
RIDE: LAND ROVER RANGE ROVER AUTOBIOGRAPHY YEAR 2017
ENGINE: 4.4 LITRES V8 DIESEL ENGINE
TRANSMISSION: 8-SPEED AUTOMATIC
Why did you go for the Range Rover brand?
You can’t quite compare the luxury Range Rover with other SUVs (Sports utility vehicles). The ride is always the best in luxury and class. It is the epitome of off-road SUVs.
How did you get the ride?
It is an ex-UK. I purchased it earlier this year after being enticed by its good condition when I saw it online. It took three months to be shipped to the Mombasa port.
What do you love about the ride?
The feeling when you steer it is irresistible. Its performance and the stability are just excellent. I have always been a lover of speed, but the poor condition of Kenyan roads was making it a nightmare, till I got this stable and comfortable ride with 8-speed gear and 550 horsepower.
I have not changed anything in it yet, since the manufacturer did justice to it. My only fear is the cost of spare parts. They are quite expensive, but it is the life I chose. I am always cautious when driving it, since a simple scratch can cost plenty of cash.
