In 2017 you will be able to drive the new Range Rover. Still just as powerful but with an extra handful of gadgets and added refinement, it promises to be the marque’s most impressive SUV yet. If you’ve always dreamed of driving a Range Rover, it is well worth the wait.
The new version looks much the same as the current model we have all come to know and admire. Land Rover has kept the tapered and curved silhouette because it works both in terms of aerodynamics and stylish appeal. You still get to enjoy the high seating position of the 2016 model giving you assured command of the road ahead.
For extra refinement, the 2017 version comes in two new metallic paints: Silicon Silver and Farallon Black, and more striking wheel designs for greater personalisation.
Advanced Tow Assist is a new upgrade option that allows you to select the direction of the trailer using a simple rotary selector.
Similarly, the interior retains the same ultra-comfortable and spacious layout. The long central console is a real feature that extends to the rear so the passengers can make use of the climate controls, cup holders and extra storage space. Natural light flows through the cabin making the drive feel more uninhibited. Choose to add the panoramic roof for an experience on the road that feels truly unrestricted.
All trim levels have been given an additional dose of technology with a 10.2-inch touchscreen now added as standard. In the SVAutobiography Dynamic expect to find deluxe diamond quilted leather seats that feel satisfying to sink into.
On top of the current selection of engines, there’s a 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine that produces 335bhp. It will take you from 0-60mph in around seven seconds so it’s easier to overtake on the motorway.
A new all-terrain feature makes the latest Range Rover more responsive on slippery roads and uneven ground. You can select the mode manually it will apply less torque giving you better grip when pulling away.
Technology and safety
Every Range Rover for the model year 2017 comes with rear parking distance controls and cruise control with speed limiter helping you to relax safely on every journey.
The lane departure warning has been improved with Lane Keep Assist which gently steers you back into place if you start to veer on the motorway. A sensor system called Blind Spot Assist is also added to keep you informed of any hazards not covered by your mirrors. These two features are part of the optional Drive and Drive Pro packs.
You’ll find enhanced infotainment, too, with InControl Touch Pro. The navigation has been improved with a commute mode that recognises frequently-used routes and keeps you updated on the best course based on live traffic information. It can connect to your smartphone and share your arrival time and current location with whoever you select it to.
Every new technological advancement is added on top of the features you get in the 2016 model, so you can still enjoy the convenience you’re used to.
