Jaguar Land Rover Middle East has announced that they will debut the 2018 Range Rover at the forthcoming Dubai Motor Show. While changes to the exterior are more in line of a model range refresh, the interior gets the latest generation of the group’s infotainment and driver assist packages.
The front row gets new seat frames that allow 24-way adjustment, with wider and deeper foam and heated armrests. The rear seats get integral massage functions and can recline by up to 40 degrees. The seat functions, including heating and cooling and recline can be operated by the smart phone app. The cabin gets loads of connection and power ports, including a 4G Wifi hotspot that allows 8 devices to pair simultaneously.
Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer, Land Rover says, “Our customers are very clear about what they want from any new Range Rover. ‘Don’t change it, just make it better,’ they tell us, so everything we’ve done has been about enhancing our flagship SUV. After nearly 50 years the fourth generation Range Rover is the finest so far, ensuring the original luxury SUV remains the choice for discerning customers the world over.”
Additional features that also come with the 2018 Range Rover Sport include gesture control for the sunblinds, Pixel headlights, Air cabin ionisation that uses nano-sized charged water particles to cleanse and purify the air. And the car also gets the activity key.
The most obvious change for the driver is the inclusion of the two 10-inch screens of the Touch Pro Duo that is now an integral part of the infotainment system.
While the car launches at the show, you can order the car from today at the local dealer.
