When choosing the exterior shade of a Range Rover you have more possibilities than just selecting a color - you can also play with the roof, adding a contrasting finish and/or a panoramic sunroof. For the ultimate level of color choices, you’ll have to look at the Autobiography trim level, which offers 22 unique finishes.
Land Rover wanted the new model to follow the current trends and offer a higher level of personalization. Thus, apart from the aforementioned choices, customers can also opt for illuminated tread plates, as well as for electrically deployable side steps and tow bar (offered separately).
Depending on the market, you can gift the car with wheels ranging between 19 and 22 inches in diameter.
As for the interior color configuration, the cabin of the Range Rover is spread in multiple areas: the lower zone, the seats, the door panels, lower dashboard and center console, as well as the veneers and the headliner.
The climate control system is offered in two versions, one with three zones and one with four areas, also offering a Park Heating timer feature.
Since the Range Rover has become more of a luxury car than an offroader, you can also choose special seating options, such as a massage feature and an Executive rear seat pack.
There are also other premium features that boost the plush feeling offered by the car: keyless entry, soft door close, as well as power upper and lower tailgates.
In terms of providing an audio experience, the Range Rover turns to British specialist Meridian, offering three levels for the audio system. The highest one will bring you the 1,700W Signature Reference system, which spreads no less than 29 speakers, including a subwoofer, across the cabin of the SUV.
This easily tops the Harman Kardon system, the highest option available, of the previous generation Range Rover, which provided proper quality, but lacked high-end bass capabilities.
On the safety features front, the Range Rover offers Blind Spot Monitoring with Closing Vehicle Sensing, Reverse Traffic Detention, which warns the driver of potential accident during reversing and a Surround Camera System.
Land Rover also gifted the car with Intelligent Emergency Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control, with the latter incorporating Queue Assist - this can bring the car to a complete stop if the traffic requires it.
The Range Rover relies on multiple technologies to handle various driving conditions, including Dynamic Response with Active Lean Control, as well as on Adaptive Dynamics (adaptive dampers). As with the previous model, there’s also an optional Active Rear Locking Differential, which assists the Active Center Locking diff.
The fourth generation of the Range Rover ups the ante on the personalization front compared to its predecessor, also upgrading the rest of the features at a moderate level.Continue reading
