|   Tuesday, September 18, 2012
After careful investigation of Bentley and Maserati, Land Rover has finally given birth to the first true super premium SUV. If you recall, the first such attempts were made in 1999, when the Range Rover V12 emerged.

Thanks to Britain's Autocar, we have everything we need to know about the model right now. the manufacturer wanted this car to combine the best in luxury capabilities and the best in off-road driving. Let's see if it succeeded.
In order to see if progress was made, the car was compared with the likes of Mercedes S Class, Audi A8 and the Bentley Flying Spur, for the on-road part, the Discovery 4, Mercedes GL, Lexus LX for off-road, and the BMW X5 and Audi Q7 for performance and economy.
175 parameters were put to the test, and the result is that the Range Rover 4 has a 30 percent improvement on steering, 28 percent on handling, and 25 percent in ride, compared to the previous model.

The improved Terrain Response 2 system now comes with an extra setting, auto. This allows for a quick analysis o the terrain and switching to one of the 5 settings. A new Dynamic Response setting is included as an option on the basic model and is supposed to significantly reduce the amount of body lean in corners. It even works off the road, by isolating the anti-roll bars. Overall, off-raodong abilities are aided by hill start assist, hill descent control, gradient release control, roll stability control dynamic stability control and electronic traction control.

Engine wise, buyers will be able to choose from 3 units, 2 V8s and 1 V6. The V6 unit is a twin turbocharged engine using diesel as fuel. It is rated at 255 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. Full torque is available at 2000 rpm. The economy rating is 37.8 mpg and the carbon dioxide emissions stand at 196 g/km.

One V8 uses twin-turbo tech and diesel to get the 355 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. It can go 32.5 miles on one gallon of fuel and emits 229 g/km of carbon dioxide. The other engine is a supercharged V8 on gasoline, and produces 504 horses and 461 lb-ft of torque, while offering 21 mpg and 322 g/km CO2 emissions.

Torque is split 50-50 to the front and rear axles, and the V8 models have the option of getting an active rear locking differential. All engines come with start-stop tech. Note that Range Rover included a ZF 8 speed automatic gearbox

To personalize things, buyers can customize the cabin and outside of the car with 18,000 options, with 16 interior themes. Various colors, wood veneers, and more are all open to customization. Also on the inside a panoramic roof is fitted, claimed to be the largest of any SUV.

The car will also arrive in a hybrid form sometime in 2013. A V6 diesel engine, with 286 horses and 412 lb-ft will power it, along with a permanent magnet AC synchronous motor rated at 47 horsepower and 125 lb-ft. It will reach 62 mph in 7.4 seconds and have 169 g/km CO2 emissions.
