The updated 2018 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport have been released by Land Rover India. Range Rover images show that the design language has stayed the same over the years, and the new model has the same charm with a few small changes. The interiors also have new gadgets, such as digital displays and high-end materials. Last year, Land Rover cut prices across the board. Here is India’s price list for the 2018 Range Rover and Range
Engine & Gearbox
Range Rover can be bought with two diesel engines and two gasoline engines. There are two diesel engine choices: a Turbocharged V6 with 259 PS of power and 600 Nm of torque, and a V8 with 340 PS of power and 450 Nm of torque. In the gasoline version, there is a supercharged V6 with 340 PS and 450 Nm of torque and a supercharged V8 with 525 PS and 625 Nm of torque. All of these engines come with an automatic gearbox with eight speeds. Range Rover has to work hard to beat the Porsche Cayenne.
As we’ve already said, the outsides have been slightly changed, but the main design hasn’t changed. Land Rover says they haven’t changed anything, they’ve just made it better. The hood has some strong lines, and the front grille pattern has been changed to look like the “Atlas” mesh pattern on the Velar. Now the back bumper has bigger vents that look cool and help keep the brakes cool. The “Pixel LED” daytime running headlights also shine in a different way. Because they have 142 LEDs, they give off a stronger beam. On the side, the fake air vents have been changed.
The LED taillights in the back have also been changed, and the exhaust tips have been built into the bumper. This helps make it look more up-to-date. New colours are being added to the Range Rover line, like Byron Blue for the higher trims.
Compared to the Velar, the Range Rover’s inside didn’t feel as good. Now, that hole has been closed. The Range Rover now comes with an entertainment system called “Touch Pro Duo.” Its two 10-inch touchscreens helped clean up the dashboard because most of the buttons can be used on the screens themselves.
The person in the back will be happy to hear that they are getting new “Executive Class” seats. These seats are as comfortable as those in an aeroplane, and the back angle can be changed up to 40 degrees. Then there are things like a massaging function and a powered centre armrest. The sunblind can also be controlled by gestures, such as a wave of the hand.
Soundproofing materials and thicker glass are used to improve the soundproofing. At night, the three lighting zones—the ceiling, the area around the footwell, and the doors—will set the mood.
Some other cool features are ionisation for the air conditioner, adaptive cruise control with “Queue Assist,” voice control, and the Terrain Response 2 offroading system.
