In its 43rd year of production Land Rover engineers designed and produced the latest Range Rover. And what a car this is. This is not some soft SUV! This is the real deal. A luxurious executive car with astonishing 4×4 off-road capabilities. Currently Range Rover is offered in three trim levels – HSE, Vogue and Autobiography. More versions such as Sport are expected in the near future. The fourth generation Range Rover is better looking, more frugal and, what is most important in our opinion, is lighter.
Even if you opt for entry level HSE trim you will still enter a luxurious world, and if you want, an off-road world as well. Only one engine is available in HSE trim: A 3.0 litre V6 diesel with eight speed automatic transmission will take you from 0-60 mph in 7.4 seconds and stop at maximum speed of 130 mph. As you can see it’s fast even in its lowest offering. Plenty of power is available all the times. As we can expect from LR, off-road capabilities come standard. Systems such as Terrain Response, Air Suspension and Permanent Four Wheel Drive will enable you to go where no other car of this stature can go. And by doing it passengers will still feel comfortable inside. A 3500kg towing capability just adds the icing on the cake. It is truly a workhorse. The 19″ alloy wheels are standard. An 8″ touch screen with Meridian audio system, voice control and Bluetooth are all there to make your life easier. With driver, passenger, side, seat-front, thorax and pelvis air bags it is a safe car to be in as well.
One more step up the ladder and we have well known Vogue trim level. You can choose not from one but from three engine options. Already mentioned 3.0 litre diesel is standard but you can opt for more powerful 4.4 litre diesel that will take you from 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds and accelerate to the maximum speed of 135 mph. If that is not enough for you another engine is available and that is the powerful 5.0 litre supercharged V8. This beauty will accelerate from standstill to 60 mph in only 5.1 seconds. This is sports car performance. Maximum speed is 155 mph. All off road systems from HSE are standard in Vogue trim.
The third trim level you can opt for is Autobiography. Chrome details all around and 22″ alloy wheels make this car stand out from the crowd. All three engines available in Vogue you can get in Autobiography trim as well. As standard 20 way adjustable seats will make your travel as comfortable as possible. As an option Land Rover also offers executive class rear seats. What that means is that you get two individual seats in the rear – this is limousine comfort right there.
With the all new Range Rover you really get the whole package. Next generation body architecture and all aluminum structure make this car lighter and stronger than before. Co2 levels it produces are also lower than in previous generations so it should fare well with green oriented people as well. Driver and passengers will feel like at home sitting in big, comfortable seats and air suspension will make sure the travel is smooth and refined, we can say luxurious. Plenty of air bags and all new structure make this car one of the safest on the market. Plenty of accessories and optional equipment are available to make the car as personal as the buyer wants. Once the driver decides to take it off road there are systems coupled with permanent four wheel drive that will make this vehicle go practically anywhere.
