Range Rover 2013 Model Unveiled At Carcosa Hotel
Land Rover Malaysia has official unwrapped the all new 2013 Range Rover SUV, a car that features a sharply lighter body, better handling as well as improved fuel economy. This new Range Rover is the first SUV to feature an all-aluminum unibody structure and comparing it with the outgoing model, it is 39 percent lighter. In terms of design, the 2013 Range Rover features sleeker lines, new front and rear fascias, but the profile remains the same. The interior was also upgraded and now offers more legroom (4.7 inches) for the rear passengers. (As an option, the new Range Rover can feature rear bucket seats that transform it into a four-seater). Moreover, the interior noise has also been reduced by 39 percent lighter lamination of the windshield and side door glass. Under the hood we will find a refined supercharged V8 petrol engine, but also TDV6 and TDV8 diesel engines.
The all-new Range Rover has a clean and elegant shape which is derived from a fresh new interpretation of Range Rover design cues. While instantly recognisable as a Range Rover, the new vehicle takes a significant step forward with a bold evolution of the model’s iconic design language. With Land Rover strength at its heart, the new model has been engineered from the ground up to be the most capable, most refined Range Rover ever. Amongst the industry-leading innovations is a ground-breaking next-generation version of Land Rover’s Terrain Response® system, which analyses the current driving conditions and automatically selects the most suitable vehicle settings for the terrain.
To ensure exceptional durability and reliability, the new model has been subjected to Land Rover’s punishing on- and off-road test and development regime, with a fleet of development vehicles covering millions of miles over 18 months of arduous tests in more than 20 countries with extremes of climate and road surfaces. Within the cabin, the all-new Range Rover provides occupants with a sensation of serene isolation, meeting the highest luxury car standards for refinement. Measures like the rigorously optimised body structure and acoustic lamination of the windscreen and side door glass have significantly reduced noise levels, while the new suspension architecture has enabled engineers to achieve even more luxurious ride comfort and refinement.
The sumptuous interior incorporates distinctive Range Rover design cues, but executed with a very contemporary treatment, and clean, elegant surfaces which are flawlessly presented using the finest leathers and veneers. With over 118mm more legroom, the rear occupants benefit from vastly increased space and comfort, with the option of a new two-seat Executive Class seating package for the ultimate in rear-seat luxury. To deliver the model’s characteristic effortless performance, customers have the choice of refined V8 petrol engines and TDV6 and SDV8 diesel engines combining responsive performance with outstanding CO2 emissions.
The all-new Range Rover has been engineered with the latest developments in vehicle technologies, from interior luxury features such as exclusive Meridian surround sound music systems and power upper and lower tailgates, to advanced chassis and driver assistance technologies.
Designed and engineered at Land Rover’s development centres in the UK, the new Range Rover is produced in a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Solihull, UK – employing the latest low-energy aluminium body construction technologies.
