The luxury SUV has a new benchmark thanks to the introduction of the Range Rover SVAutobiography. The new model delivers a peerless combination of craftsmanship and technology, epitomising the pinnacle of luxury travel that Range Rover represents, whether driving or being driven.
Available in long wheelbase, this Range Rover combines advanced new convenience features, including rear doors that close at the touch of a button, to create a sanctuary for relaxation that doubles as a mobile tech hub. A comprehensive range of powertrain options includes an advanced new plug-in hybrid electric-petrol, with an EV range of up to 51km, and an uprated 416kW V8 supercharged petrol engine.
Executive Class rear seats are central to the appeal of this luxurious new model. Combined with the long-wheelbase body, they offer rear legroom of over 1.2m while deep seat foams with new comfort interlayers deliver enhanced passenger wellbeing. With a powered 40-degree recline capability, hot stone massage function, heated calf and footrests, and 22-way adjustment, the rear cabin promises a peerless passenger experience.
A dramatic fixed centre console extends the full length of the cabin and the new model also allows passengers to close the rear doors using conveniently located buttons on the rear console. Electrically deployable rear tables and integrated rear entertainment screens ensure the use of 4G WiFi connectivity to work or relax in comfort, while a concealed refrigerator between the twin rear seats can hold two wine bottles or four 600ml bottles. The right-hand rear seat folds to accommodate long items and a Power Deployable Veneered Loadspace Floor can be specified for the first time, making loading and unloading luggage easy.
With convenience features providing a first-class passenger experience, the attention to detail here delivers new levels of sophistication. An exclusive new Zenith clock features on the rear centre console was inspired by the Elite 6150 watch. Its knurled bezel complements the finish on the start / stop button, gear shifter and pedals.
Jaguar Land Rover’s elegant and intuitive Touch Pro Duo infotainment system with twin high-definition touchscreen controls is a digital butler fit for the 21st Century. Information can be swiped from one screen to the other, delivering unrivalled functionality and ease of use.
The Range Rover SVAutobiography will be hand-finished exclusively at the SVO Technical Centre in Warwickshire, UK, and made its global motor show debut at the Los Angeles International Auto Show on 29 November 2017.
