Land Rover Range Rover Review by Expert
When you are sitting in car with premium plush interiors that one describes as epitome of luxury and drives through the roughest, bumpiest Indian road and do not feel the slightest body roll, you are sure to be sitting in a Range Rover. The outstanding SUV from the house of British Auto marquee that enjoys an iconic position in the auto market around the world with its class leading performance, nimbleness, inimitable looks and class quality. The four door Sports Utility vehicle in its fourth generation is produced jointly by Tata Motors and its original manufacturers Land Rover.
The fourth generation of Range Rover is built on monocoque chassis and not the ladder on frame one adopted with the first and third generation with mass use of aluminium to lower down the weight of the SUV and now the Land Rover Range Rover is 39% lighter than its previous versions. The new reduction in weight has set the SUV achieve new heights in mileage and acceleration figures as with the 420kgs reduction in weight the engine has got more pulling power. It was tough to redesign the iconic SUV of all times, so in its fourth generation also Land Rover has not changed the SUV carve and cut rather build it up on the same lines as earlier with a few tweaks.
The new design elements introduced are subtle and just build on the niche styling of the British marquee. The overall length is still marked under 5 meters however the new model sits 200mm lower. The new floating roof smoothly flows from the top to the rear end of the SUV, the headlight cluster is now rendered with Adaptive Xenon Headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lights also include headlamp power wash. The front fascia is short and in the face with clear cut designing with clamshell bonnet and signature grille. The side profiling is strong and rugged with side fender vents which now feature on the base of the front doors. The rear side of the SUV is clean with the Range Rover insignia embossed at the door in chrome detailing and the LED rear lights with turn on indicators. Two exhaust pipes are neatly placed at the rear bumper.
Step into the Range Rover SUV to feel special with the new premium double stitched Semi-Aniline Leather Seats. To take the plush quality several notches higher the British marquee has introduced high gloss veneer and metallic finish inserts. The legroom space and headroom space is whooping with the SUV being the choice without a doubt for those long journeys and the off-roading experiences and with the high wheelbase the body roll is minimized to zero in the cabin area. The central cluster is bold and a forceful interaction and a mesh between the horizontal elements of the instrument cluster and the straight lining of the centre stack. The switches have been reduced in the cabin area with lot of them now shifted to the touchscreen central cluster. The safety features include Driver and Passenger Airbags with EBD, Hill Descent Control, Dynamic and Roll Stability Control, Traction Control and Cornering Brake Control.
