Land Rovers started out as utilitarian vehicles designed for use on the farm. Consequently, they had minimalist interiors that were designed for a tough working life. Even the first generation Range Rover, although rather more civilized, had a largely vinyl and rubber interior that could more or less be hosed out when it got dirty.
