Land Rover has launched the latest MY2018 range of its flagship SUV, the Range Rover, in India starting from Rs 1.74 crores for the diesel going all the way up to Rs 3.88 crore for the bespoke Range Rover SV Autobiography.
You can have the Range Rover in both standard wheel base as well as the long-wheelbase, with the latter offering more than 100mm of added knee room in the already spacious cabin.
The MY2018 cars have a revised front fascia with design cues from the Velar. The raked grille and the new all-LED headlamps with the large but sculpted bumper gives the Rangie the required brawn.
While the profile has the same recognisable sloping D-pillar design, the tail section has been revised. The twin-element tail lamps are minimal yet elegant, matching the creased boot-lid.
Inside, the cabin is palatial with the choicest of the wooden veneers adorning the dash and trims and the three-spoke steering wheel houses a host of control functions.
The three-screen touch-pro layout includes the instrument cluster, the infotainment screen and the touchpad in-car controller which accesses all the comfort functions.
The leather seats are power adjustable for both the front and the rear rows. The fifth seat deploys as an armrest which has storage as well as a remote to control car functions from the rear seat.
The large boot will help you carry all the possible luggage and if you plan to go camping, the twin-opening boot-lid also serves as the perfect bench.
Under the hood of this behemoth, you have options of the 3.0-litre petrol, a 4.4-litre diesel and the legendary 5.0-litre supercharged V8 to choose from.
The Rangie gets an eight-speed automatic with the latest state-of-the art Terrain Response 2 all-wheel drive function with driving modes et al.
Overall, the all-new Range Rover gives you one of the most stylish and opulent SUVs in the world probably eclipsed only by the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, in terms of presence.
