New Range Rover is gloriously extravagant

New Range Rover is gloriously extravagant

Many luxury brands have encroached into territory that was strictly the domain of Land Rover and its Range Rover SUV not that long ago. Electrically deployable rear tables and integrated 10-inch Touchscreen rear entertainment screens allows rear passanegers to 4G WiFi connectivity to work or relax, while a concealed refrigerator between the twin rear seats can hold two wine bottles or four 600ml bottles. Naturally there are screens - two ten inchers - giving much wirelessness. Doubtless the new SVAutobiography is a quicker and more relaxing way to get to the office, but it does rather make us yearn all the more for a modern Range Rover truly worthy of Spen King's original vision. Regular long-wheelbase Rangies start at £112,900.

As the pictures show, on the outside it's business as usual, but climb inside and you soon notice this is something a little more special than your standard Range Rover.

Under the bonnet, drivers get a choice of three power options - a 4.4-litre V8 diesel producing 334bhp, a 5.0-litre V8 petrol kicking out 557bhp or a plug-in hybrid system centred around a 2.0-litre petrol engine with an overall output of 398bhp. The rear doors, for example, can been closed at the touch of a button. From here, a dramatic fixed center console extends the full length of the cabin and ends with a pair of cossetting seats. There's also soft-furnished airline-style reclining seats that offer over 1.2m of rear legroom. As a bonus, customers can also option a power deployable veneered loadspace floor for the first time, making packing and unpacking even easier. The timepiece, inspired by the Elite 6150 watch, perfectly complements the finish on the start/stop button, gear selector and pedals up front.

According to the British manufacturer, the SVAutobiography has been created to epitomise "the pinnacle of luxury travel". Our standard-bearer for quality and precision exemplifies the attention to detail and sophistication that has been a hallmark of our most luxurious SUV stretching back nearly 50 years.
