The new Range Rover is a full-house luxury vehicle with, among other expected standard features for a car in its class, a new “terrain response” system, a sliding glass roof and massaging front seats.
Each model has a ground clearance of 295mm, can drive through 900mm of water and has approach and departure angles of, respectively, 34.7 and 29.6 degrees.
Options include rear-seat entertainment, adaptive (following distance) cruise control and an “active” self-locking differential.
Range Rover manages to combine the utter luxury of a freeway-loving top-end sedan with the go-anywhere ability of Land Rover’s high-tech, multi-terrain, all-wheel drive and adjustable ride height.

Sales have already started and the cars will be available in 170 countries around the world, including South Africa but not, apparently, until December 2013.
