2022 Range Rover launched in India starting at Rs 2.32 crore
Land Rover, the British luxury manufacturer, has begun taking reservations for the all-new Range Rover in India, with prices starting at Rs 2.32 crore onwards.
The new Range Rover will be offered in two body designs, regular and long-wheelbase and a variety of models with four, five, and seven-seat configurations. In all variants, Land Rover will sell the 2022 Range Rover with two engine options and four trim levels: SE, HSE, Autobiography and First Edition.
Three powerplant options are available for the all-new Range Rover. A 48-volt mild-hybrid system is incorporated with 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel engines. The petrol engine delivers 394PS and 550 Nm of torque, while the diesel engine provides 346PS and 700 Nm of torque. A 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, on the other hand, produces 523PS and 750Nm of torque.
The Range Rover has never been a small SUV and the theme will continue as the 2022 Range Rover, based on JLR's new MLA-Flex architecture comes in at over 5 metres in length and that further extends up to 5.25 metres in the long-wheelbase version. Land Rover knew that manoeuvring an SUV as big as this would be a pain which is why rear-wheel steering comes as standard.
There doesn't seem to be plenty of new upgrades for the new car but that's only till you get up close. Closer inspection reveals 'Digital LED' headlights with DRLs, a new grille, a redesigned front bumper with a two-bar insert, reshaped 'gills' on the flanks and flush-fitting door handles. Wheels sizes range from 21-inches to as big as 23-inches.
On the inside, the 2022 Range Rover features a completely new dashboard and an upgraded infotainment system. There's a 13.1-inch curved, floating touchscreen and a 13.7-inch full-digital instruments display, with a head-up display available as an option. A redesigned double-bar steering wheel, physical climate control controls, a full-size panoramic sunroof and 11.4-inch entertainment displays for the rear-seat passengers are also incorporated.
Rohit Suri, President and Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India, said, "The Range Rover sits at the pinnacle of luxury SUVs in India and the new fifth-generation Range Rover ups the desirability quotient significantly higher."
Deliveries of the fifth-generation Range Rover are expected to start taking place in a few months from now. The Range starts from Rs 2.32 crore for the SE trim rising all the way up to Rs 3.41 for LWB First edition. The Land Rover Range Rover 3-litre rivals the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLS, BMW X7 and Audi Q7 while the Land Rover Range Rover 4.4 V8 goes up against the Mercedes-Maybach GLS, BMW X7 M-Sport, Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Bentley Bentayga.
