What are the engine options?

Locally, there are two turbodiesel, one turbopetrol, and one plug-in hybrid powertrains available. The lineup starts out with the D300 with its 3.0-liter, twin-turbo in-line-six diesel that makes 300hp and 649Nm of torque. Moving up a notch is the D350 that uses the same block as the D300, but power moves up to 350hp and 700Nm of torque. But if it’s a V8 you want, that’ll be the P530 packing a 4.4-liter, twin-turbo gas engine punching out 530hp and 750Nm of torque.

As for the plug-in hybrid, that’s badged as the P440e. It pairs a 3.0-liter, turbo-gas in-line-six engine to a 105kW electric motor. Its total combined output is 440hp and 660Nm of torque. All Range Rover models run on four-wheel drive with an eight-speed automatic and Terrain Response 2 modes. We wouldn’t expect anything less.

Luxuries?

It’s a Range Rover, so of course it’s packed with luxuries. You get acres of wood, leather, and aluminum (or aluminium if you insist on the British spelling) inside. Not only that, the Ottoman seats available in the Autobiography model can slide and recline (electronically, of course), plus the leg rests are there to give you the most relaxing configuration. Another highlight is the Meridian surround-sound system with up to 34 speakers for a theatrical experience on the move.
