The cabin of this SUV continues to be a spacious and splendid place to be in. Instead of the wooden veneers, like on its elder sibling, this one uses beige soft materials on the dash and trims. The metal finish is smooth and the knobs get a nice rubber sheath. The steering wheel houses a host of control functions with volume control even adjustable by circular touch. However, the most interesting bit is on the centre console - Land Rover's new 'Touch Pro Duo' infotainment system with two 10-inch touch screens replacing almost all buttons for accessing all the comfort functions. Indeed, they make the cabin less cluttered, show more information, add to the convenience and look spectacular.
In terms of fit and finish, there is hardly anything to find fault at. The front leather seats are power adjustable and get heating options. However, they lack a massage function. Very comfortable and very spacious nonetheless! The second row of seats are comfy too, with the fifth seat deploying as an armrest and providing storage as well.
Now, on to the comfort and luxury features. This HSE trim comes loaded with panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, four-zone climate control with ionisation for cleaner air flow and loads of power sockets. There's a choice of Meridien music systems and apart from eight airbags, there are more safety features added too. Here, the adaptive cruise control with ‘Queue Assist’ is certainly worth a mention. When activated, it helped the SUV mimic the car in front perfectly. Our SUV rolled forward with this car ahead and even slowed down when the other car reduced its speed.
Besides that, park assist and automatic parking also come as standard. Furthermore, for added convenience, the electronically powered tail gate opens with the swipe of a foot underneath, to a large boot that will carry all the possible luggage required. This isn't a twin-opening boot-lid like other Land Rovers, but it closes at the touch of a button.
