The new Land Rover Range Rover debuts in Dubai
Launching at the Motor Show in November
Land Rover has revealed its first new long-wheelbase Range Rover for more than 20 years. The subtly restyled LWB model has an extra 140mm of legroom for rear passengers. It debuts at the Dubai Motor Show from November 5-9 and will be on sale from March next year.
The rear seats, whether in traditional bench or individual Executive Class form, can recline by up to 17 degrees, plus the LWB has powered side-door blinds and a panoramic sunroof as standard. It will carry an "L" badge behind each front wheel arch.
Land Rover has also released plans of its new range-topping Autobiography Black model, which will only be available in long-wheelbase form, bringing the Range Rover into more direct competition with Bentley and Mercedes.
"The Range Rover Autobiography Black is the latest step in our transformational journey that moves luxury to another level," said Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern. "The vehicle is an intensely designed and focused response to our customers' desire for more choice and exclusivity."
