A clean-sheet design, and even more upmarket. Externally, a fussier looking Range Rover, though made simpler, more elegant and more luxurious on the inside. The design was meant to take Range Rover cues and advance them; reaction was mixed at launch. Marketing campaign saw 2012 model alongside 1970 original, connecting the two.

Fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions reduced by a claimed 25 per cent as a result. An inch longer than outgoing model.

Plenty of goodies including Hill Descent Control, and other controls for gradient release, hill starts, stability and traction. LWB from 2013. Plug-in hybrid from 2017. Straight-six mild hybrid from 2019.
