2012 Land Rover LR4 HSE :: Classifieds

Land Rover LR4

I recently spent time in a Land Rover LR4 exploring Norway and was really impressed. The vehicle in question was owned by my friend and full-time traveler Kasper Hoglund, and he has owned and lived in it for the best part of a decade. Despite traveling hundreds of thousands of kilometers around Scandinavia in extreme conditions, the Land Rover had never broken down. In addition, the interior is classy and offers a level of refinement that holds up against the luxury 4WDs of today. It wasn’t uncommon for Kasper to drive the best part of 1,000 miles from Oslo to Lofoten just to hike and take photos because the Land Rover made the journey so pleasurable. Yet, the LR4 remains an impressive value with recent examples posted to our forum including this $20,750 2010 and a $21,500 2013 HSE HD. Today’s 2012 Land Rover LR4 HSE is the best value to date at just $19,000. It has covered 100,000 miles and features premium modifications and an Eezi-Awn Blade hard-shell rooftop tent (it has also undergone considerable maintenance as documented in the original listing). If you’d like to see how the LR4 can be further upfitted for adventure, check out the builds from Kasper Hoglund, The Loam Ranger, and Hest.

From the Seller:

Up for sale is my 2012 Land Rover LR4 HSE Lux in Fuji White with black interior. It’s the top-end trim, which means it has premium double-stitched leather, heated front and rear seats, built-in rear seat TVs, a heated steering wheel, heated windshield, etc. This has been my family hauler and backcountry camping vehicle for the past five years. It drives tight and tracks true and has the potential to be a great adventure vehicle for the right owner.”
