Range Rover’s 50th Celebrations Continue: India Model Details Revealed


50th year celebrations continue with 2021 model year Range Rovers, special editions and a new Ingenium diesel engine

 

  • Land Rover has revealed details of the Range Rover model year 2021 for India.

  • Two engine options: updated BS6 P400 3.0-litre MHEV petrol and new Ingenium D300 3.0 MHEV diesel.

  • No cosmetic changes to the previou model but there will be three new special editions available.

  • Of course it’s still packed with uber luxury options like massaging seats, panoramic sunroof, leather and suede upholstery and multiple wood trim options.

  • Safety features include lane departure warning, emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.

The new range of Range Rovers for India are coming in as MY21 vehicles. Like before, there will be two engine options: one petrol and one diesel. Both units are 3.0-litre straight six Ingenium engines, with the new diesel Ingenium making its global debut here. Both engines will also be MHEVs, meaning they will have mild-hybrid technology as well. The petrol unit makes 400PS and 550Nm, while the diesel produces 300PS and 650Nm.

Cosmetically, not much has changed in the standard models from the last facelift which we tested in 2019. Tech includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto across the range and 4G WiFi connectivity through a hotspot as well. There is, of course, executive class seating depending on which variant and option box you tick. One of the highlights is a ‘hot stone’ massage function. 

The interiors have just as many trim options and luxurious materials to coddle you as before and there’s also the Long Wheelbase variants (LWB) in case you need even more room. There’s even an air ionisation function and PM2.5 filter to keep the insides of the cabin as clean as possible. In terms of safety, there’s lane departure warning, emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.

Also India bound are three special editions in celebration of the marque completing 50 years in existence. The Westminster Edition, the Westminster Black Edition and the Range Rover Fifty which was revealed globally last month. 

 

The Westminster Edition: It’s based on the Vogue model and features 21-inch diamond turned alloys and privacy glass on the outside while the insides are adorned with a suede roof lining and black veneer accents. Other interior highlights include a panoramic sunroof, soft closing doors, and a 19-speaker meridian sound system.

The Westminster Black Edition: Includes all of the Westminster Edition bits and adds a Black Exterior pack with delicious gloss black wheels.

The Range Rover Fifty Edition: The Fifty is based on the Autobiography platform and adds on bespoke interior accents and a Fifty script specially created by Land Rover’s Chief Creative Officer Prof. Garry McGovern OBE. This will appear on the centre console plaque declaring the car 1 of 1970 special. And if you are going to splurge on this special edition, you just must have it in one of its heritage colour options. 

The three special editions will only be available as LWB variations. SWB or short wheelbase variants are available in the Vogue, Vogue SE and Autobiography trims while LWB variants are available in Vogue, Vogue SE, Autobiography and Autobiography SV trims.

So finally in summary the 2021 Range Rover may not really look too different but still manages to give it’s customers more, both in terms of the new powerful mild hybrid tech engines and an interior that is as tech savvy as it is luxurious. And if you really want to wallow in exclusivity there are the three special editions to ensure that your arrival doesn't go unnoticed.
