The new engine also promises to be smoother than the previous diesels, as well as being designed to meet the latest global emissions regs. The MHEV Range Rover and Sport are among an elite band of full-sized luxury SUVs to meet the latest (RDE2) standard on nasty NOx emissions. On fuel consumption, the D300 achieves 33mpg on the WLTP test cycle.
The Range Rover, which starts from £83,465, is also newly available in three special models which join the limited-edition Range Rover Fifty – marking the car’s 1970 launch – already announced.
The Westminster is a UK-only special with either the new diesel or plug-in electric power, and extras that include privacy glass, Atlas exterior accents, 21-inch diamond-turned alloys, black cabin veneers, suedecloth headlining, a sliding panoramic roof and soft-close doors. The Westminster Black Edition gives you all as well plus, you guessed it, lots of black detailing, including new wheel choices up to 22-inch gloss black nine split-spoke wheels. The third new edition is the SVAutobiography Dynamic Black – now with more gloss back accents on the body than ever.
