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. The LR-TDV8 4.4 litre is hailed as the most powerful engine ever introduced into the range. It can achieve a maximum speed of 130 mph while acceleration from zero to 60 mph takes just 7.5 seconds.
Technological improvements have seen both fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions radically improved. Emissions have been shaved by almost a fifth to 253 g/km, while combined fuel consumption has been boosted to over 30 mpg.
Transmission is provided by the ZF 8HP70 eight-speed automatic that incorporates the Drive Select and Paddle Shift. This innovation has played a key role in ensuring the Range Rover is now efficient as it is powerful. Those that would prefer petrol power, the LR-V8 Supercharged are linked to speed automatic with CommanShift, ensuring smoother gear changing.
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.
