Land Rover has unveiled the all-new Range Rover at the Paris International Motor Show, the world's first SUV with a lightweight all-aluminium body, which the manufacturer claims makes it the most refined and capable vehicle in its class.
Altogether, the line-up featured four models, including the Autobiography 4.4-litre SDV8, the Vogue 3.0-litre TDV6 and two Autobiography models powered by the 5.0-litre LR-V8 Supercharged petrol engine.
Also showcased at the symposium were features such as panoramic and contrast roofs, and a next-generation version of Land Rover's innovative Terrain Response system, which analyses the current driving conditions and automatically selects the most suitable vehicle settings.
Customers now have an engine choice of a petrol 510PS LR-V8 Supercharged and two diesels – the 3.0-litre 258PS TDV6 and 4.4-litre 339PS SDV8 – each of which are now paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
John Edwards, Land Rover global brand director, commented: "This is a vehicle that will take us to the next level of success. Range Rover's distinctive design, breadth of capability and class-leading refinement and comfort have always made it unique."
"When we asked our customers what they wanted us to change, they told us 'don’t change it, just make it better'. We set out to create not just the world's finest luxury SUV, but the world's finest luxury vehicle."
Also exhibited at the Paris Motor Show was a special edition Range Rover CSK, a rare, two-door model from 1990 named in honour of Land Rover's founding father, Charles Spencer King.
