The prestigious Range Rover delivers an outstanding drive for such a large car. The cabin has been beautifully built for maximum comfort and you can rest assured that you are travelling in a safe environment too as the new Range Rover comes fully equipped with 7 airbags, electronic brakeforce distribution and stability control, as standard. Both the petrol and diesel engines are fast, smooth and satisfying.
The Range Rover is hailed as providing the ultimate luxury all-wheel drive experience; this vehicle oozes power. An economical and innovative engine nestles underneath the bonnet, and drivers can choose any one of four exceptional petrol and diesel versions that deliver similarly high levels of performance. The 4x4 will roar from 0-60 in just 5.1 seconds when powered by the supercharged 5.0-litre engine, with other versions taking no more than 7.4 seconds, and all are matched with an electronic eight-speed automatic gearbox. Land Rover has also introduced a diesel hybrid engine, which will combines even more impressive levels of efficiency and fuel economy with the solid performance that drivers expect.
Each new engine uses highly economical Start-Stop technology to prevent wasted energy on every journey. By automatically cutting power to the engine whilst the vehicle is waiting in traffic or to pick up passengers, drivers will enjoy a drastic reduction in their fuel consumption with the new Range Rover – it now claims one of the highest combined MPG levels in its class.
This luxury vehicle comes with a range of enticing exterior features. Aiding night time driving is the adaptive front lighting provided by xenon headlamps. Incorporated into the system are cornering lights. Outside noise will never be an annoyance with the acoustic windscreen and laminated front door glass. Laminated glass for the backdoor is also an option. The Range Rover's auto-dimming exterior mirrors eliminate the head light glare from following vehicles.
The interior of the Range Rover is the epitome of luxury with a wide choice of leather upholstery, trim finishes and Belgravia leather fascia topper panel. The other features include an eight-inch touch-screen, "Say What You See" intuitive voice control, automatic climate control and air filtration, heated front and rear seats, and the Range Rover branded sill tread plates. With the SV and SV Autobiography you can enjoy an even more relaxing driving experience with front driver and passenger memory foam massage seats.
The Vogue SE is fitted with the Terrain Response® system, Terrain Response Auto 2, as standard. The system identifies and analyses the current driving conditions, automatically selecting the most suitable terrain programme for the road ahead and adjusting the engine, gearbox and chassis accordingly.
Land Rover has enhanced both the active and passive safety features, including their Intelligent Emergency Braking system for the first time with versions that have Adaptive Cruise Control as standard. By anticipating the movement of other vehicles, the system can prevent collisions if the driver in front slows suddenly or changes lanes without enough warning.
Safety is a crucial feature in the Range Rover design. There are side impact beams on all doors. The front seats offer added security for driver and passenger with pre-tensioned load limited seat belts.
