JLR launched the all-new Range Rover in India on November 30. The all-new Rangie has been re-engineered to become more competitive as a genuine luxury car on-road as well as becoming more capable off-road. The new model is lighter, more frugal, more spacious and significantly more refined, according to Land Rover.
The company says it is the world's first SUV with all-aluminium monocoque construction and the new car is around 250kg lighter than the previous model.
A 40mm longer wheelbase gives the new Rangie improved rear cabin space. It has been benchmarked against luxury cars such as the Bentley Flying Spur and Mercedes S-Class for ride quality and tyre and wind noise.
The latest Range Rover's new-generation Terrain Response 2 system now includes an 'auto' setting, which analyses the terrain and can switch automatically between the five off-road settings.
The new Range Rover will be available in India with a 4.4-litre V8 twin-turbo diesel engine that makes 334bhp as well as a 503bhp 5.0-litre supercharged petrol V8. The base variant - the V8 diesel Vogue - is priced at ₹1.72 crore. The V8 diesel in Autobiography trim is priced at ₹1.79 crore, and the supercharged petrol V8, available exclusively in Autobiography trim, is priced at ₹1.84 crore (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
Land Rover will start selling the 3.0-litre V6 diesel powered variant in India from June 2013.
