Land Rover launches the all-new Range Rover in India, prices start from INR 1.72 Crores

If ever proof was needed that India sits high on the list of global automotive manufacturers, this is it. Merely days after going on sale in international markets, the all-new Range Rover, widely considered as the best luxury Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) in the world, was launched here today. Though Tata Motors' ownership of Land Rover would have influenced a quick launch here, the importance of India in the global automotive radar can't be undermined.

The new Range Rover, that is currently in its fourth generation, is launched in two trim levels – Vogue SE and Autobiography. While the former comes with only a diesel engine, the latter comes with a choice of diesel and petrol engines. Prices start at a stratospheric INR 1.72 Crores for the Vogue SE diesel and goes up to INR 1.84 Crores for the top-of-the-line Autobiography petrol. All prices are ex-showroom Delhi, which means that owning one on-road would set you back by atleast 2 Crore Rupees. The supercharged V8 petrol engine is a 5.0-liter unit that churns out 503 bhp of maximum power while the twin-turbo V8 diesel engine is a 4.4-liter unit that belts out 334 bhp of maximum power. While the V6 diesel option that is available in international markets isn't launched here, expect it to join the Indian line-up in the not-so-distant future.

Range Rover has always been the pinnacle of luxury in Sports Utility Vehicles and the new model takes it one step forward. Friends from media who have got to drive the new Range Rover have vouched for the quality and richness of the interiors. Every damn feature that you might think of and some more find their way into the Range Rover's cabin. A high-end Meridian audio system, 4-zone climate control, high-res screens for rear passengers, an 8-inch central touch screen with dual-view functionality and executive class individual rear seats are few of them. There are no shortage of other comfort and safety features either and the Range Rover is sure to pamper and protect its owners like emperors.

As much as they scorch the roads, Range Rovers are always known for their excellent off-roading prowess. Land Rover's patented Terrain Response System ensures that this luxury SUV feels at home in all terrains. In what is a global first for a SUV, the Range Rover boasts of an all-aluminum chassis that makes it significantly lighter than the previous generation model. Air suspension on all four wheels ensures that passengers are cocooned, with a ride quality that's comparable to ultra-luxury sedans. Though the basic shape hasn't changed since the first generation model made its debut in the seventies, the new Range Rover has evolved into an incredibly modern automobile with stunning detailing spread across its huge frame.

So, what are you waiting for my dear rich folks? Head to your nearest Land Rover dealer and sign a cheque for the new Range Rover. Don't dwell over its price, all good things in life comes at a cost. The Range Rover is no exception.
