The 2018 model year Range Rover family of cars has been launched in India with prices starting at Rs 1.74 crores (All-India ex-showroom). This is a mid-life update for this generation of the iconic SUV and for the first time. We have driven the hybrid powered model and while it is not coming to India just as yet, the story does give us an idea of what the new car has. You can find a link to our review here.
On the outside, both versions get a sleeker grille, matrix LED headlamps, new tail lamps and chunkier bumpers with the exhausts now integrated into them. Inside, you now get the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system and a waterproof activity key. However, the biggest change are new seats which are now wider with multiple control functions available at the touch of a button.
You get a variety of engine options ranging from a 3.0-litre V6 petrol to a 5.0-litre supercharged V8. All models get a ZF eight-speed AT and the latest version of Land Rover’s terrain response system. Known globally for its off-roading prowess, both versions also boast of top notch approach and departure angles for high levels of off-roading capabilities.
The Range Rover range rivals the likes of the Porsche Cayenne and other super luxury SUVs like the Bentley Bentayga, Mercedes-Benz G-Class and the Mercedes-Benz GLS63 AMG.
