LAND ROVER is heralding a new benchmark in luxury motoring with the arrival of a bespoke service to Range Rover fans offering an ultra-high degree of refinement and personalisation.
Available on both top grade Autobiography and SV models, the service also includes updates to the line-up’s Pivi Pro infotainment system, while the new plug-in hybrid cars receive more power.
The company says its Range Rover SV will be available with electric hybrid power on the long wheelbase model for the first time and a new 615PS model will also be introduced – as well as the V8 getting mild hybrid technology.
A range of materials and finishes – both inside and for the exterior – can be specified via SV Bespoke with up to 391 interior material colours available, plus more than 230 paint colours in satin and gloss finishes.
And the Match to Sample paint service can replicate any exterior colour request, while finishes are also possible in precious metal finishes like 24 carat gold.
Plug-in electric hybrid engines now feature a new 160kW electric motor which, when combined with the 3.0-litre six-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine, produces 550PS and 460PS in the P550e and P460e models – up from 510PS and 440PS.
The technology provides improved acceleration in EV mode, reducing the time it takes to reach 62mph in pure-electric power by 5.0 seconds.
Using both power sources, the P550e now has a 0-60mph acceleration time of 4.8 seconds, down from 5.2 seconds.
These units are up for grabs alongside existing mild hybrid petrol and diesel Ingenium engines, and provide CO2 emissions of 16g/km with a pure-electric driving range of up to 75 miles.
Passenger comfort sees a new Country Road Assist system appearing on the Range Rover using navigation data to adjust the target speed automatically, taking into account bends in the road and changes to the speed limit.
And following its debut in the Range Rover Sport model, Dynamic Response Pro is available using electric roll control technology to reduce body lean when cornering for a more relaxing and engaging drive.
All-terrain capability is also boosted through Adaptive Off-Road Cruise Control which is a feature of the advanced Terrain Response 2 system that helps drivers navigate tricky terrain by maintaining steady progress depending on surface conditions.
Prices for the new Range Rover line-up start at £103,720.
