Many countries possess a mountain range, which contrasts with what is otherwise a gentle relief.
First of all, the statement "Argentine Patagonia is for the most part a region of steppelike plains" is absolute wrong. The dry patagonia, wich covers the most part of the Argentine Patagonia, is plenty of plateaus, canyons, depressions and petrified forests. This photos are from the "region of steppelike plains":















Second, percentages are irrelevant unless we talk about traveling hours, so its out of place in this discussion. Actually, the really important thing is the absolut surface. In this case, the western patagonia encompassing Chile and Argentina, wich is the zone that share similar landscape with New Zealand, covers and area of near 500.000km2, wich is more than THREE times the surface of New Zealand's south island.

Wikipedia is open source. When it is absolutely wrong, your corrections will be welcomed by the entire world. Don't disappoint.

As a matter of fact, even the Wiki authors of the article on "Steppe" chose a photo of Paagonia to illustrate the landform:

How can so many respected geographers be so wrong?
