Range Rover is a name that does not necessitate any introduction. It went on sale internationally in 1971 for the first time. Today, the company has unveiled the fifth-generation model of the Range Rover, and it looks very much like one. The design is clean and minimalistic. The lines have evolved, but they do not miss out on the legacy. In simple words, the 2022 Range Rover’s design is an evolution rather than revolution when compared to the model it replaces. Yes! It does get Velar-like door handles. The luxury SUV will be sold in SE, HSE, and Autobiography trims. Plus there will be 5 colour options to choose from.

In the UK, prices start from 94,400 Euros (Rs. 97.40 lakh). Underpinned by the MLA-Flex architecture, there will be two wheelbase options on offer. The LWB trim will be longer than the SWB variant by 200 mm. Seating options include 4-seat, 5-seat, and 7-seat configurations (exclusive to LWB trim). The architecture can also support an electric powertrain. However, the all-electric Range Rover is set to premiere by 2024 only.
