Bookings for The Range Rover SV in 2022 are Now Open
The company has also begun taking reservations for the new Range Rover’s ultra-luxurious SV variants. In India, the new Range Rover SV will be available in standard and long wheelbase versions, with two distinct design themes – SV Serenity and SV Intrepid – to choose from. The SV Serenity theme “amplifies pure luxury detailing,” while the SV Intrepid theme “exudes a more stealth-like character,” according to the manufacturer.
The new Range Rover SV features an exclusive front bumper and grille design, interior wood and ceramic trim, semi-aniline leather interior, 14 new colours from the SV Bespoke Premium Palette, and 12 different alloy wheel designs. Buyers can also opt for the environmentally friendly ‘Ultrafabrics’ upholstery.
Customers who choose the LWB model also have the option of upgrading to the four-seat SV Signature Suite, which includes an electrically deployable ‘Club Table’ and an integrated refrigerator. In addition, the SV models come with 13.1-inch rear entertainment screens, the largest ever installed in a Range Rover. The fifth-generation Range Rover SV is also the first model from Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations to feature the new ceramic SV roundel and the shortened SV name.
In India, the new Range Rover SV will be available with a 346hp 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine or a 523hp 4.4-litre twin-turbo petrol V8 engine. The new Range Rover SV variants’ prices have yet to be revealed.
Outside Design Cues for The 2022 Range Rover are New but Similar
While the new Range Rover retains the outgoing model’s distinctive silhouette and is easily identifiable, the differences are in the details. Three strong character lines distinguish this new SUV: a falling roofline, a strong waistline, and a rising sill line. Its predecessor’s short overhangs and clamshell bonnet have been retained.
The large gloss black panel at the back of the new Range Rover, which incorporates vertical brake lights on the sides and indicators in a bar across the top, is one of the car’s most prominent exterior features when not in use. Each headlight cluster contains about 1.2 million individual mirrors that reflect light from a rear-mounted mirror, while the taillights are said to use the most powerful LEDs in existence.
Thanks to a hidden waist finisher, the new Range Rover has an unbroken waistline, with the rounded edges of the door seamlessly meeting the glass house. The grille’s ‘gill’ motifs have been redesigned, and flush-fitting door handles, first seen on the Velar, have been added. The Range Rover retains the split tailgate design of its predecessor at the rear. The new SUV is claimed to have a drag coefficient of 0.30, which is a 12 percent improvement over the previous model.
Interior and Features of The 2022 Range Rover
The new Range Rover’s interior has also been completely redesigned. The styling is similar to that of newer Land Rover models, but the emphasis is on luxury and opulence.
In the cabin, Land Rover has placed a special emphasis on creating a calm and quiet environment. It comes with a Meridian Signature Sound System with 35 speakers and an active noise cancellation system that uses a counter cancelling signal to filter out wheel vibrations, tyre noise, and engine sounds. Cabin Air Purification Pro, which combines dual-nanoeX technology and PM2.5 air filtration for improved air quality, is also included.
The new floating 13.1-inch infotainment screen with the latest generation of Land Rover’s Pivi Pro operating system is another big highlight of the interior. This is the primary control and function screen, and it features a customisable three-tab home screen that allows you to access 90% of the functions with just two presses, and haptic feedback is now standard across the range. A new 13.7-inch digital instrument cluster, as well as an upgraded head-up display, work in tandem with the Pivi Pro system.
Land Rover has thankfully kept the physical dials for the climate controls, which are controlled by a touch-based panel. A new four-spoke steering wheel and a clean, minimalist centre console with a short, stubby gear lever are also included.
This is the first time the Range Rover has been equipped with a third row, where even six-foot-tall adults can sit comfortably, according to Land Rover. Second-row legroom will also be improved compared to the outgoing model, as the new SUV is longer than the outgoing model in both standard and long wheelbase configurations. The LWB model will be the only one with a seven-seat configuration. In the four-seater versions, rear passengers also get a pair of 11.4-inch screens mounted on the front seatbacks for personal entertainment, as well as an 8.0-inch touchscreen controller in the centre armrest for controlling seat functions and more.
Platform and Powertrain for The 2022 Range Rover
Land Rover’s MLA-Flex body architecture supports the new Range Rover. In India, the Range Rover will be available with two petrol engines and one diesel engine. The 3.0-litre six-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines are at the top of the range. The petrol engine produces 395 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque, while the diesel engine produces 346 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque.
The top-of-the-line model will now be powered by a BMW-sourced 523hp, 750Nm, 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, which will replace the outgoing model’s 5.0-litre supercharged petrol engine. The six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, in particular, are equipped with 48 V mild-hybrid technology, which aids in fuel efficiency. All models come standard with all-wheel drive.
Land Rover’s Integrated Chassis Control, which improves the vehicle’s dynamics, is standard on the new Range Rover. It also comes standard with all-wheel steering, with the rear axle capable of a steering angle of up to 7 degrees. The fully independent electronic air suspension with twin-valve dampers, which uses navigation data to read the road ahead and prime the suspension for perfect responses, is also standard. The Range Rover comes standard with the Terrain Response 2 system, which includes six driving modes for optimising driving characteristics based on terrain.
In India, Rivals for The 2022 Range Rover
The all-new Range Rover will compete in India against Mercedes-Maybach GLS and Bentley Bentayga. The former starts at Rs 2.47 crore, while the facelifted Bentayga went on sale in May of last year for Rs 4.10 crore, both prices are ex-showroom, India.
