    The latest Range Rover is lighter, more spacious; prices start at Rs 1.72 crore.

    JLR launched the all-new Range Rover in India on November 30. The all-new Rangie has been re-engineered to become more competitive as a genuine luxury car on-road as well as becoming more capable off-road. The new model is lighter, more frugal, more spacious and significantly more refined, according to Land Rover.

    The company says it is the world’s first SUV with all-aluminium monocoque construction and the new car is around 250kg lighter than the previous model.

    A 40mm longer wheelbase gives the new Rangie improved rear cabin space. It has been benchmarked against luxury cars such as the Bentley Flying Spur and Mercedes S-Class for ride quality and tyre and wind noise.

    The latest Range Rover’s new-generation Terrain Response 2 system now includes an ‘auto’ setting, which analyses the terrain and can switch automatically between the five off-road settings.

    The new Range Rover will be available in India with a 4.4-litre V8 twin-turbo diesel engine that makes 334bhp as well as a 503bhp 5.0-litre supercharged petrol V8. The base variant - the V8 diesel Vogue - is priced at Rs 1.72 crore. The V8 diesel in Autobiography trim is priced at Rs 1.79 crore, and the supercharged petrol V8, available exclusively in Autobiography trim, is priced at Rs 1.84 crore (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).

    Land Rover will start selling the 3.0-litre V6 diesel powered variant in India from June 2013.
