Just like bandits on the horizon, a host of well-armed machines will be gunning for the Range Rover in 2016. Bentley, Maserati, Jaguar, Rolls-Royce – hell, even Tesla is launching an SUV.
So what does Land Rover have to do to battle its way through and win in the muddy playground of sports utility vehicles? Probably not much, judging by the latest model Rangey.
Little has changed since last year. It’s mostly more technical stuff in the cabin, like a better surround camera system for parking, a remote tailgate is now standard and the air suspension automatically drops to low access height when the car is parked. Smashing.
The connectivity of the infotainment system is also improved and you can now check the status of the Range Rover’s systems remotely using a special App. Cool.
And guess what? It still would have been the best 4x4xfar even without those changes. More tomorrow…
