The Range Rover and Range Rover Sport get revised exterior designs, the highlight of which is that they haven’t changed anything but made them better. The ‘Atlas’ mesh grille detailing, for example, is inspired by the one on the gorgeous-looking Range Rover Velar. The bumper has been revised with larger vents that are now functional as they help cool the brakes better. Other changes at the front include the revised bonnet with subtle yet aggressive ridges and a revised design for the LED DRLs.
The ‘Pixel LED’ headlamps are new as well. They feature 142 LED elements and produce a beam that is brighter than before as both the low beam and high beam of lights can be cast at the same time. Individual elements with the ability to cast a shadow make this possible without dazzling oncoming traffic.
At the side, the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport now feature revised accents for the faux vertical slats.
At the rear, the LED taillamps have been redesigned and the exhaust outlets integrated into the bumper for a cleaner look. The Range Rover siblings get new colour options, including the ‘Byron Blue’ paint for the more luxurious Range Rover.
Inside, the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport become the latest models to get Land Rover’s ‘Touch Pro Duo’ infotainment system which replaces all the buttons on the centre console with two 10-inch touchscreens. First introduced on the Velar, these touchscreens make the cabin less cluttered and are intelligent enough to show different information for added convenience.
The Range Rover gets ‘Executive Class’ rear seats which promise airplane-like comfort, with up to 40-degrees of backrest angle and more. The wider and plusher seats get features like a powered centre armrest and massage functionality with a ‘hot stone’ massage mode. What’s more, the rear window sunblinds can be deployed with the wave of a hand! The thicker glass makes the cabin quieter, while a three-zone ambient lighting (ceiling, doors and footwell) makes it look cooler. The climate control system now features ionisation for cleaner airflow in the cabin.
The Range Rover and Range Rover Sport also feature adaptive cruise control with ‘Queue Assist’. When activated, the system can mimic a car up ahead perfectly, even bringing the SUV to a complete stop and rolling forward with the said car.
The engines on the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport have been updated for slightly more performance than before. The diesel lineup consists of a turbocharged V6 (259PS/600Nm) and a turbocharged V8 (340PS/740Nm). Petrol engines include a supercharged V6 (340PS/450Nm) and a supercharged V8 (525PS/625Nm). All of them come paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, Land Rover’s proprietary off-road drivetrain and the intelligent Terrain Response 2 off-road logic.
