Engine & Gearbox
Range Rover can be had with 4 different engine options, two in diesel and two in petrol. The diesel options are Turbocharged V6 that makes 259 PS of power and 600 Nm of torque, and V8 that produces 340 PS of power and 450 Nm of torque. In the petrol we get a supercharged V6 making 340 Ps of power and 450 Nm of torque, and a Supercharged V8 churning out 525 Ps of power and 625 Nm of torque. All these engines come with an 8-Speed automatic gearbox. Porsche Cayenne is a tough competition for Range Rover
As mentioned before, the exteriors have been tweaked slightly but the core design remains unchanged. In the words of Land Rover, they haven’t changed anything but just made it better. The bonnet has some muscular lines and the front grille pattern is changed, inspired from the Velar’s ‘Atlas’ mesh design. The rear bumper now has larger vents that look cool and also helps to cool the brakes. The Daytime running ‘Pixel LED’ headlights also glows differently. The 142 LED elements in them produce a more powerful beam. One the side there are redesigned faux air vents.
The rear LED taillights are also redesigned and the exhaust tips are now integrated into the bumper. This helps giving it a more modernised look. The Range Rover range gets new colour options, including the ‘Byron Blue’ paint for the higher variants.
The interiors of the range rover felt lagging in comparison to the Velar. Now, that gap is filled. The Range Rover now comes with a ‘Touch Pro Duo’ infotainment system It’s two 10-inch touchscreens helped clean out the dashboard as most of the buttons can be accessed from the screen itself.
The rear passenger will be pleased to know that they get a new ‘Executive Class’ rear seats. These seats promise airline level comfort with back angle adjustable up to 40-degrees. Then there are features like powered centre armrest and massaging function. The gesture feature like a wave of the hand to control sunblind is also futuristic.
The sound insulation is improved with sound deadening materials and thicker glass. At the night, the interior ambient lighting will set the mood with three-zone lighting- ceiling, footwell area and doors.
Some other cool features include ionisation for airconditioner, adaptive cruise control with ‘Queue Assist’, voice control, and Terrain Response 2 offroading system.
