Set to make its debut at the New York Auto Show next week is the new Range Rover SVAutobiography. Just when you thought Range Rovers couldn’t be more luxurious, they produce this.
Offered in both standard and long-wheelbase versions, the SVAutobiography will be available with two-tone exterior paintwork for the first time.
The finish features a Santorini Black upper section, with a choice of nine colours for the lower section.
Also new is the front grille, finished in Graphite Atlas and polished chrome, plus new Range Rover bonnet lettering and a subtle tailgate badge.
The interior changes go a little further: the majority of the switchgear such as the ventilation and other controls are machined from solid aluminium, and that’s a theme that continues with the aluminium pedals and other trim throughout the cabin.
Rear seat passengers can enjoy a drink from the chiller compartment, while resting their glass on a powered fold-out table.
The luxury material selection continues with a choice of fine wood veneers, deep twist mohair carpet mats, and aluminium details such as the seat rail finishers and integrated coat hooks.
The boot has been given its own special touches, such as the option of a sliding load floor finished in wood veneer and aluminium, plus the option of ‘event seating’ that sees a pair of Windsor leather-trimmed seats deployed onto the open rear tailgate.
The Range Rover SVAutobiography is powered by a choice of either SDV6 Hybrid, SDV8 diesel engine, or the 550PS 5.0-litre supercharged V8 from the Range Rover SVR.
All 2016 model year Range Rover models see the SDV6 Hybrid produce lower CO2 emissions, while the SDV8 models now feature stop/start that brings their CO2 figure down to 219 g/km and economy to 33.6mpg.
There’s also a new Surround Camera System complete with washer system for the rear camera, a Gesture Tailgate function, plus Automatic Access Height that lowers the vehicle for easy exit and entry.
The revised 2016 model year Range Rover goes on sale this summer priced from £74,950, while the new SVAutobiography will set you back £148,900.
