Range Rover and Range Rover Sport updated for better off-road capability, performance and efficiency


Land Rover has updated its Range Rover and Range Rover Sport lineup, further enhancing their off-road capability, performance and efficiency. The updates include a world-first technology in the form of All-Terrain Progress Control system, enhanced six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines with significant gains in both performance and efficiency, Head-Up Display (HUD) and two eye-catching new paint colours.

'Range Rover and Range Rover Sport offer an unrivalled combination of performance, efficiency, design leadership and off-road capability,' says Phil Popham, Group Marketing Director, Jaguar Land Rover.'Our latest updates capitalise on these strengths, with our ground-breaking new All Terrain Progress Control, along with extra-efficient six-cylinder engines, which underline Land Rover's commitment to sustainability.'

The All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) allows the driver to input a desired speed, either from rest or an existing speed, without any pedal inputs once the brake is released. It constantly monitors and adjusts the vehicle settings to optimise traction and maintain progress in all conditions. ATPC works both in forward and reverse gears and is operational from 1.8 km/h to 30 km/h).

Head-Up Display (HUD) makes its debut on Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. It projects key information like vehicle speed, gear position and shift indicator, cruise-control information, satellite-navigation instructions and Traffic-Sign Recognition on to the wind screen. The driver can also pre-select which information is displayed.

Both Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are now available with a new exterior colour - Yulong White, while the Range Rover Sport is offered in Kaikoura Stone.
