Range Rover reveals upgrades to Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models

Land Rover has announced a host of upgrades to its Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models, which will be available to order from tomorrow.

The TDV8 diesel engine, available in both models, has been tweaked to produce 546 lb ft of pulling power – an increase of 30 lb ft - with no increase in either emissions or fuel consumption. 

Both models now feature fixed panoramic roofs as standard, new wheel and colour options, as well as Land Rover’s Incontrol technology.

As well as SOS emergency calling and remote tracking should your car be stolen, InControl also includes a range of Land Rover Apps, plus the ability to connect up to eight devices through the car’s own wi-fi hotspot facility.

For the Range Rover flagship, there is a new Autobiography Black model, which is available only in long-wheelbase form.

The Autobiography Black comes with unique new 21 or 22-inch alloy wheels, LED rear lights, configurable mood lighting, new leather trim combinations and special Autobiography design detailing. In addition, rear-seat passengers can relax in individually adjustable seats, separated by an extended centre console with electrically deployable leather tables, USB sockets and bespoke lighting.
