The long wheelbase Range Rover, regarded by many as the finest and most luxurious SUV in the world has finally been launched in India. JLR unveiled the long wheelbase Range Rover at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo, offering a few discerning customers the final word in luxury and comfort in the SUV segment. The long wheelbase Range Rover is priced between Rs 2.08-2.63 crore, (ex-showroom, Mumbai)


The Range Rover long wheelbase is immediately distinguishable by the noticeably longer rear door, which substantially adds to the rear passenger leg space. Infact, the long wheelbase Range Rover is 186mm longer than the standard Range Rover, which in turn adds an additional 140mm of legroom in the second row. The second row of seats can be equipped with a conventional bench seat or individual executive seats as per the customer’s discretion. The long wheelbase Range Rover is also equipped with one of the largest panoramic sunroofs ever fitted to a car adding to the level of luxury it offers.

Engine options are the same as the regular Range Rover with a 5.0-litre petrol, supercharged V8 engine, which makes 510PS of power and 625Nm of torque. The diesel will be a 4.4-litre V8 producing 339PS and a monstrous 700Nm of torque and is expected to be the best-selling variant in India. The Range Rover LWB prices start at Rs 2.08 crore for the 3.0-litre diesel going up to Rs 2.63 crore for the top-of-the-line Autobiography petrol in standard, non-customised guise. 


The long wheelbase Range Rover will go up against the likes of the Bentley Continental Flying Spur and the Rolls Royce Ghost, both in terms of appeal and in terms of sheer road presence. The 2014 long wheelbase Range Rover will also face competition in the coming years from Bentley’s new SUV, which is slated to be launched sometime in 2016.
