After the announcement of the premiere of the new Range Rover and the publication of the first teaser on the Web, photos from the pages of the French version of 4×4 magazine have leaked, fully revealing the design of the SUV. As expected, the “fifth” Range Rover is not much different from its predecessor, but some of its stylistic decisions still deserve attention. Among them are panoramic windows and an unusual design of the stern.
The new Range Rover can be taken as an ode to minimalism. The SUV consists almost entirely of smooth surfaces, with a minimum of protruding parts, and, apparently, therefore, it looks fresh and conceptual. The fifth generation model is easily distinguished from its predecessor by the rectangular air intake in the front bumper, the radiator grille with a different pattern, narrower headlights and two “shark fins” on the roof.
When viewed from the side, “panoramic glazing” catches the eye, which made it possible to make the appearance of the car more swift and light. But much more interesting is the design of the stern with thin stripes of lanterns, and Range Rover has retained one of its main “chips” – a split tailgate. The interior has been transformed with a redesigned dashboard, a new steering wheel and a large screen for the Pivi Pro multimedia system. Transmission shifting is now controlled not by a retractable “washer”, but by a small selector in the style of Audi.
In addition to photographs, data on modifications of the new Range Rover have been leaked. The base version will be the D250 version with a 250 hp Ingenium diesel engine. Behind it will be the D300, D350, as well as the P400e and P500e hybrids with the ability to charge from the mains. Place at the top of the gamut is reserved for the P530. Such an SUV will receive a V8 engine and in a long wheelbase version will cost from 173,700 euros.
