There is no wonder why Land Rover has been the official vehicle to the Royal Family since Land Rover first awarded the 100th production Land Rover to King George VI in 1948. Sure footed across any terrain, yet elegant in appearance and poised with a certain je ne sais quoi, the Range Rover has elevated that experience in every single model iteration since Land Rover (then British Leyland) introduced the model in 1970. The Range Rover is everything an all terrain SUV and luxury sedan should be all at once.
In a return to producing special “Long Wheel Base” editions not seen in a Range Rover since the early 1990’s, the LWB edition adds 8” to the wheelbase. While this may not seem like all that much in a vehicle that is 17 feet long overall, but when you consider that all that room is between the front and rear wheels, that translates into 47” — yes, nearly 4 feet — of rear legroom, or some 20% more legroom than the standard wheelbase.
With 510 HP and 461 ft-lbs of torque the Range Rover certainly “doesn’t hang around.” Put your foot to the floor and brace yourself: your back will be pressed into the seat and you’ll be left wondering how on earth you got all this heft going so quickly. But this isn’t just straight line acceleration. This version of the Range Rover actually corners. Well. Really well, in fact, and then there are the massive brakes, because, lets face it, sooner or later you will need to slow down. Those of you reading this in Vancouver know this all too well — there’s a street for almost every bike lane, and nothing moves quickly anymore. But at least you can take comfort in knowing that you, and your passengers are truly separated from the masses – by insulated glass, leather everywhere including the headliner, and not one, but 2 refrigerators — yes, two. You know, to keep your champagne chilled in the back, and designer boxed water up front. Rear seats are separated by a console that controls everything, including the recline function for the seat, the 2 large TV’s affixed to the rear of the front seats, and all the climate control buttons as each seat has its own dedicated temperature and fan speed functions, as well as seat heat and ventilation settings.
With every creature comfort imaginable, including massaging seats, heated steering wheel, HIFI Meridian Sound System with Dolby Surround, navigation, self parking (yes, it will steer itself into that tight parking spot, making you look like a pro, whether you are or aren’t) this 2015 Range Rover Autobiography LWB fits the bill for any urban professional looking to conquer the city, or country.
