The global reveal was staged at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden in London. The AA was invited to view the livestream reveal online as the covers were so elegantly removed from the latest in luxury SUVs.

Range Rover has been a pinnacle of luxury over the last 50 years, and the catch phrase ‘Future of Modern Luxury by Design’ rings true as they are the vehicle of choice for many world leaders, royals, and high achievers.

Standouts at a glance

  • Dynamic agility: All wheel steering available for the first time as a standard feature, giving an impressive 11-meter turning circle.

Simplistic luxury

Such a super minimalistic exterior, with a side profile consisting of just a few elements: a gently falling roof line, the clamshell bonnet blending into the continuous waistline, and the removal of upper door finishes with flush glass and inset handles.

The new face of Range Rover has just two elements to it; the front grille blending into the headlights which give a wide stance appearance and the lower 2-bar design grille in which hide all the sensors for the parking and safety technology systems.

“The new model perfectly encapsulates five decades of Range Rover DNA while refining the vehicle to suit the 21st-century technology-immersed customer. The new model is an evolution of the Range Rover marque - the technology and grandeur details showcase industry firsts, solidifying the unparalleled league of the Range Rover.

“We are exceptionally proud of this vehicle – it is our most desirable to date.” - Steve Kenchington, Land Rover New Zealand CEO

The sound of silence

The new Range Rover is equipped with class-leading active noise cancelling, as microphones tucked away inside each of the Range Rover’s wheel arches listen to the wheel vibrations, tyre noise and engine sounds transmitted into the cabin and generates a cancelling signal, which is played through the system’s 35 speakers. These include a pair of 60mm diameter speakers in the headrests for each of the four main cabin occupants, which create personal quiet zones similar to the effect when using high-end headphones.

Magic carpet ride

The Range Rover was the first luxury SUV to feature Electronic Air Suspension in 1992, and the New Range Rover continues this pioneering approach with Dynamic Response Pro and pre-emptive suspension that uses eHorizon Navigation data to read the road ahead and prime the suspension to provide perfect responses.

The intelligent technology also works in conjunction with the Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist to smooth out body movements resulting from sudden changes in speed. Fully independent suspension underpins the luxurious ride and features Land Rover’s first ever five-link rear axle, which isolates the cabin from surface imperfections more effectively than ever using advanced air springs.

The SV personalised touch

Available in New Zealand later in 2022, the New Range Rover SV will provide an exquisite interpretation of Range Rover luxury and personalization, giving customers even more scope to create a truly individual vehicle with a choice of exclusive design themes, details and material choices from SV.

This hand-crafted model will be the first vehicle to carry the new ceramic SV roundel (badge) and simplified naming strategy – known simply as SV. The SV name represents the distillation of Special Vehicle Operations’ design and engineering passion for modern luxury, performance and capability and will identify all new Land Rover vehicles launched by Special Vehicle Operations in future.

The road to electrification

Extended range PHEV: New 510PS and 440PS plug-in hybrids (available second half of 2022) deliver a hushed EV range of up to 80km (real world drive claim) and CO2 emissions below 30g/km for serene and efficient driving.

Pure electric: Battery-electric Range Rover is set to premiere in 2024 as Land Rover embraces their new Reimagine strategy with an all-electric powertrain for its original luxury SUV.

Hot demand

The all-new Range Rover is for those that desire a large SUV with elegance and simplistic luxury appeal whist crafted to perfection, all encased in the latest technology. Range Rover NZ has reported receiving 64 customer orders in the first few hours after the global reveal.

Further information will be available leading up to the NZ arrival of this stunning vehicle.
