Bookings for the fifth-generation Range Rover can be made starting today, with the model carrying a starting price of an eye-watering Rs 2.32 crore (ex-showroom). The next-gen Range Rover will be available in three variants – SE, HSE and Autobiography – but the individual prices haven’t been disclosed yet. It is also said that a First Edition trim, based on the Autobiography, will be introduced but only next year.
Land Rover’s most luxurious SUV can be had in standard wheelbase or in long-wheelbase (LWB) versions, and it is based on the new flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture. It measures 5 meters in length (5.25 in the LWB version), 2.2 meters in width, 1.87 metres in height and has a wheelbase of about 3 meters (3.19 in the LWB version).
Design changes at the front include a new grille and digital LED headlamp design with DRLs. View this luxurious SUV from the side and you’ll notice its sloping roofline and a new boat-tail rear with a split tailgate.
The carmaker hasn’t limited the changes to the exterior and has given the cabin a bunch of additions and tweaks. You’ll see a 13.1-inch curved touchscreen infotainment screen that gets Land Rover’s latest Pivi Pro system (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto). Those seated at the back get 11.4-inch touchscreen units. Handling audio duties is a 1,600-watt Meridian Signature Sound System. Also, being mindful of the environment we live in, the carmaker has equipped with SUV with Cabin Air Purification Pro that ensures you’ll be breathing in fresh air.
The 2022 Range Rover SUV comes with a choice of three engines. There is a 3.0-litre mild-hybrid petrol engine that makes 394hp and 550Nm of torque; a 3.0-litre diesel motor (mild hybrid) producing 341hp and 700Nm of peak torque; and 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 making 515hp and 750Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Your Range Rover can be a four- or five-seater, or a seven-seater if you pick the LWB SUV.
