"The new Range Rover offers an unparalleled special blend of luxury, performance and unmatched all-terrain capability.
"Its clever design and revolutionary lightweight construction will give Indian customers a product that will cope with the most difficult of terrains and provide a step change in comfort, refinement and handling," Suri said.
Though the basic silhouette is the same as the previous generation, you can tell this Rangie is all new thanks to the all new LED-cluster head lamps. The more prominent grille and the tighter skinning. This luxury off-road stalwart uses an all-aluminium body that's 420kg lighter than its predecessor, sitting on a wheelbase that's been stretched by 40mm. It's also a touch lower and wider in the body than its predecessor. Though no one will miss this SUV on-road its actually only as long as an Audi A6.
Indians can choose from two spec options – Vogue SE and Autobiography in diesel and only the top end Autobiography for the petrol. The main difference being that the top version gets a contrasting shade for the roof and body.
Prices for the Range Rover start at Rs 1.72 crore and go up to Rs 1.9 crores with all the bells and whistles. All prices are ex-shoroom, Delhi.
