The new India-spec Range Rover SUV gets three engine choices, three seating layouts and two wheelbase options.

Land Rover has begun accepting bookings for the all-new Range Rover SUV in India with prices starting from Rs 2.31 crore (ex-showroom, India). The new Range Rover will be available in three trims in India – SE, HSE and Autobiography – and will come in both standard and long wheelbase form with four-, five- or seven-seater configurations. Prices for the full line-up will be announced at a later date.

At launch, Land Rover will also offer a First Edition model in India based on the Autobiography trim that will come with unique specification. It will remain available throughout the first year of production.

  • New Range Rover gets 3.0-litre petrol and diesel and 4.4-litre petrol options
  • Will be available as standard and LWB in 4-,5- or 7-seat layouts
  • This is the first Range Rover to get a 7-seat version as an option

2022 Range Rover: fresh yet similar exterior design cues

While the new Range Rover retains the distinctive silhouette from the outgoing model and remains readily identifiable, the differences are all in the details. This new SUV is characterised by three strong character lines – the falling roofline, strong waistline and rising sill line. The short overhangs and the clamshell bonnet have been retained from its predecessor.

One of the biggest exterior highlights of the new Range Rover is the sizeable gloss black panel at the rear, incorporating vertical brake lights at the side and indicators in a bar across the top, all of which are invisible when not in use. The tail-lights are said to use the most powerful LEDs in existence, while at the front, each headlight cluster contains about 1.2 million individual mirrors that reflect light from a rear-mounted mirror.

The new Range Rover also features an unbroken waistline, with the rounded edges of the door seamlessly meeting the glass house, thanks to a hidden waist finisher. The ‘gill’ motifs on the grille have been redesigned and it also gets flush-fitting door handles, first seen on the Velar. At the rear, the Range Rover continues with a split tail gate design just like its predecessor. The new SUV is claimed to have a drag coefficient of as little as 0.30, which represents a 12 percent improvement over its predecessor.

2022 Range Rover: interior and features

The interior of the new Range Rover has been completely revamped too. The design is in line with newer Land Rover models, but the real focus has been on luxury and opulence.

Land Rover has particularly focused on creating a serene and noiseless environment in the cabin. It gets a 35-speaker 1,600W Meridian Signature Sound System with an active noise cancellation system that filters out wheel vibrations, tyre noise and engine sounds through a counter cancelling signal. It also gets Cabin Air Purification Pro that combines dual-nanoeX technology and PM2.5 air filtration for enhanced air quality.

The other big highlight of the interior is the new floating 13.1-inch infotainment screen with the latest generation of Land Rover’s Pivi Pro operating system. This is the go-to screen for all primary controls and functions and uses a customisable three-tab home screen giving access to 90 percent of the functions in as little as two presses, and haptic feedback is now standard across the range. There’s also a new 13.7-inch digital instrument cluster that works in sync with the Pivi Pro system, as well as an uprated head-up display.

Fortunately, Land Rover has retained physical dials for the climate controls that’s operated via a touch-based panel. It also gets a new four-spoke steering wheel and clean, minimalist centre console with a short, stubby gear lever.

Notably, this is the first time the Range Rover has been fitted with a third row, where, Land Rover claims even six-foot-tall adults can sit comfortably. As the new SUV is longer than the outgoing model, in both standard and long wheelbase guise, second-row legroom will also be improved compared to its predecessor. The seven-seat configuration will only be offered on the LWB model. Rear passengers also get a pair of 11.4-inch screens mounted on the front seatbacks for personal entertainment and an 8.0-inch touchscreen controller in the centre armrest in the four-seater versions for controlling seat functions and more.

2022 Range Rover: platform and powertrain

The new Range Rover is underpinned by Land Rover’s MLA-Flex body architecture. Under the hood, the Range Rover will be offered with two petrol and one diesel engine in India. The range starts with the 3.0-litre, six-cylinder, Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. The petrol produces 395hp and 550Nm of peak torque, while the diesel produces 346hp and 700Nm of peak torque.

The range topping variant will now be powered by a BMW-sourced 523hp, 750Nm, 4.4-litre, twin-turbocharged, V8 petrol engine, replacing the 5.0-litre supercharged petrol engine of the outgoing model. The six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, notably, also feature 48 V mild-hybrid technology that help improve fuel efficiency. All models also get all-wheel drive as standard.

The new Range Rover notably comes with Land Rover’s Integrated Chassis Control that improves the vehicle’s dynamics. It also gets all-wheel steering as standard fitment, with the rear axle capable of a steering angle of up to 7 degrees. The fully independent electronic air suspension with twin-valve dampers is also standard fitment and uses navigation data to read the road ahead and prime the suspension to provide perfect responses. As always, the Range Rover comes with Terrain Response 2 system with six driving modes for optimising the driving characteristics depending on the terrain.

2022 Range Rover: rivals in India

In India, the all-new Range Rover will take on the likes of the Mercedes-Maybach GLS and the Bentley Bentayga. The former is priced from Rs 2.47 crore, while the facelifted Bentayga was launched in May last year for a price of Rs 4.10 crore, both prices ex-showroom, India.
