Introducing the New Range Rover: A tranquil sanctury for up to seven occupants
The New Range Rover is ready for any occasion with Standard and Long Wheelbase body designs providing a choice of four, five or seven-seat configurations.
The New Range Rover makes every journey an occasion, combining advanced technology with modern luxury to deliver peerless refinement in any environment and for every occupant.
Whether arriving at the opera or scaling a mountain, the New Range Rover elevates the concept of luxury travel by enhancing every element of experience – from the way customers interact with the vehicle digitally and physically, to the way it manages the health and wellbeing of its occupants.
The new Flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA-Flex) provides strong foundations, while an integrated network of smart technologies makes this the most advanced and luxurious SUV the world has ever seen. When combined with the hushed EV capability of the new Extended Range plug-in hybrids, it provides the ultimate interpretation of Range Rover refinement.
Nick Miller, Range Rover product chief Jaguar Land Rover, said: “The New Range Rover takes the lessons learned over 50 years of evolution and combines them with 21st-century technologies to deliver supreme refinement, comfort and wellbeing on every journey. It does this through pre-emptive suspension that primes the vehicle for upcoming corners, next-generation noise cancelling with headrest speakers and clean-air technology that can neutralise Covid family pathogens.”
The New Range Rover’s next-generation body structure provides the foundations for its transformational refinement. Flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA-Flex) delivers new levels of body stiffness and noise isolation.
Its flexibility ensures the New Range Rover is available in Standard and Long Wheelbase body designs and with a choice of powertrains, ranging from the new V8 petrol and Land Rover’s Ingenium petrol and diesel mild-hybrid engines to efficient Extended Range plug-in hybrids and the forthcoming pure-electric powertrain.
By using the right material for each element of the design, Land Rover engineers have optimised weight and stiffness, creating three rings within the body structure at the A, C and D pillars. The intelligent use of high-strength steels – for example, in a fourth strengthening ring around the front door openings – and innovative casting techniques delivers torsional stiffness up to 50 per cent higher than before, even with a full-length panoramic roof.
The steel front bulkhead features a closed-section arrangement which provides a double-glazing effect – the transmission of noise and low-frequency vibrations from road surfaces into the cabin is 24 per cent lower than the previous generation, before the addition of the latest refinement-enhancing technologies.
Active Noise Cancellation technology builds on the fundamental refinement provided by MLA-Flex to deliver one of the quietest cabins of any road vehicle – ensuring passengers enjoy a first-class experience using the 1,600W Meridian Signature Sound System. The new flagship sound system also includes a pair of speakers in each of the four main headrests for a total of 1,680W and a truly unique sound experience.
The third-generation Active Noise Cancellation system monitors wheel vibrations, tyre noise and engine sounds transmitted into the cabin and generates a cancelling signal played through the system’s 35 main speakers. It has five times the noise cancellation range of previous systems, up to 1kHz, thanks to the pair of 60mm diameter speakers in the headrests for each of the four main cabin occupants, which create personal zones throughout New Range Rover, using technology similar to that found in noise-cancelling headphones.
The New Range Rover is a highly versatile and practical luxury vehicle. Even with seven seats in place, there is 312 litres of luggage space, allowing for a pair of cabin cases, a pushchair or golf bag to fit behind the third-row seats. Capacity rises to more than 1,000 litres in five-seat mode and, with the second row folded forwards, the New Range Rover LWB can accommodate 2,601 litres of luggage, including items measuring two metres long.
