The Range Rover SV Autobiography is now available in SA. This new model is claimed to be the most powerful and luxurious Range Rover yet.
Additionally, other models in the Range Rover line-up also benefit from the addition of new technologies and features, as well as improvements to existing features. These include ergonomic enhancements both inside and outside the vehicle, and automated features that have been requested by customers.
“Range Rover customers are the most discerning of all. By using their feedback to improve our products we’re living up to our Customer First philosophy to make the best even better,” said Richard Gouverneur, Managing Director at Jaguar Land Rover South Africa and sub-Sahara Africa (JLR SA and SSA). “The SVAutobiography is the ultimate expression of Range Rover’s luxury and precision craftsmanship, delivering beautiful detailing that considerably enhances the customer’s experience.”
The SV Autobiography features unique exterior design enhancements, a premium leather interior and the option of a supercharged 5,0-litre V8 petrol engine, which produces 405kW.
Rear-seat passengers relax in luxurious seating, with access to a chiller compartment and powered deployable tables. Solid aluminium coat hooks are incorporated into the rear pillars while, on the floor, aluminium seat rail finishers and deep twist pile mohair carpet mats complete the package.
For those customers who enjoy the versatility of Range Rover’s split tailgate, SVO has developed ‘Event Seating.’ Stowed in the luggage compartment, these can be quickly and easily deployed to provide comfortable seating for two adults on the lower tailgate section.
The new Gesture Tailgate provides hands-free access to the luggage area. Sensors in the rear bumper use foot gestures to open the rear tailgate.
Further automation includes Automatic Access Height. While previously controlled manually, the new system automatically lowers the vehicle once parked. Depending on conditions the system will lower the vehicle by as much as 50mm, for improved entry, exit, and even loading items in the rear.
