The upgraded Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models for 2014 feature new technologies and offer even greater customer choice and will become widely available starting from early 2014.

Depending on individual markets, newly available customer-focused driver assistance technologies will include: Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Departure Warning and Perpendicular Park, while the new Land Rover InControl will deliver a host of connectivity features, keeping drivers and passengers in touch with their world.

The diesel and petrol engine options are carried over from the 2013 model, with the new addition of the 4.4-litre SDV8 diesel in the Range Rover Sport, and the introduction at IAA of the V6-powered, 340PS hybrid models (with CO2 ratings of just 169g/km) for both bodystyles.

“The addition of the powerful and efficient SDV8 diesel to the Range Rover Sport line-up and yet more exciting new customer-focused technologies to both the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport for 2014, further underlines their position as two of the most desirable SUVs on the market today,” said Land Rover Global Brand Director, John Edwards.

This pack is available on Vogue, Vogue SE and Autobiography models and features a range of parts finished in Gloss Black, including: Range Rover script on bonnet and tailgate, front grille, door mirror caps, exterior door handles, bumper vanes, side vent graphic, wheel nuts, tailgate finisher, plus a choice of a new 21-inch alloy wheels and a 22-inch alloy wheel with a new style finish.
