Updated British flagship consumes it — you won’t believe! — 2.8 liters of gasoline per hundred.

At the premiere of the car the chief designer Gerry McGovern was categorical:

— Design is not a democracy!

Looking at the restyled Range Rover with a Jerry can’t argue. The British flagship, as a rock: big and solid. I’m scanning his eyes and strain your memory. New grille, reshaped bumper, four “gills” air intakes on the sides instead of three. But also added two new exterior colors and six wheel options. Not a lot.

The most notable innovation — optics. She is now as updated, which is presented a few days earlier. In the database — led headlights (a dozen LEDs each) with automatic high beam. A step above matrix (26 LEDs) which divide the light beam into four separate vertical segment and does not dazzle the drivers of oncoming and passing vehicles. In the presence of the so-called pixel optics the way the led lights 71 on each side. The lights divide the light beam not only vertically but also horizontally, the result is again four segments, but the distribution of light intensity in the beam more precisely. On top of the progress — pixel optics with the laser section (laser diode, two on each side), allowing at speeds over 80 km/h to beat the high beam at half a kilometer ahead.

The new range of four options for head optics. It’s cool even for the premium segment.The new range of four options for head optics. It’s cool even for the premium segment.

Charging connector is located in the radiator grille. Fast-charging hybrid is 2 hours and 45 minutes.

Perhaps the most interesting innovation is the hybrid drive, now with a gasoline engine. To the previous hybrid with the V6 diesel decided bet not to do: this is a rare visitor even in cheap Europe, because he was sent into retirement.

Bigotory Range Rover P400e is a two-liter four-cylinder 300‑horsepower gasoline engine and 85‑kilowatt electric motor. In the limit a couple produces 404 HP the First hundred Range Rover P400e gaining 6.8 seconds and accelerates to 220 km/h. the Hybrid Range Rover is heavier curb a six-cylinder internal combustion engine at two hundredweight, and the British declare fantastic fuel consumption in the combined cycle is 2.8 liters per hundred!

Salon — style model Velar. The instrument panel is fully digital. Data projector on the windshield is new, with increased clarity and increased “diagonal”. In the center, two 10-inch touchscreen InControl Touch of multimediasystem Pro Duo. Armchairs of the driver and passenger became wider and shifted to the doors to facilitate boarding. Steering wheel controls — touch.Salon — style model Velar. The instrument panel is fully digital. Data projector on the windshield is new, with increased clarity and increased “diagonal”.

Rechargeable hybrid built according to a consistent scheme — as a Junior Range Rover Sport P400e. Li-ion battery power consumption of 13.1 kWh is located under the boot floor and allows you to go 51 km after the start, one electric range (in this case top speed 137 km/h). From home wall mounted unit battery charging for 2 hours and 45 minutes, and from the usual outlets — seven and a half hours.

If the office is relatively close to home, almost all the time, ride on electric, constantly charging the battery. Benefits? How to watch. The price of a hybrid — 9 321 000, because it is offered in rich complete sets.

For convenience, the rear right passenger’s front seat moves as far forward as possible, and a wide Central armrest is folded electrically. Split rear seatback can be rejected back to 40°, which allows to comfortably accommodate even the basketball players.For convenience, the rear right passenger’s front seat moves as far forward as possible, and a wide Central armrest is folded electrically.

Keys, electrically adjustable front and rear seats on the door.Keys, electrically adjustable front and rear seats on the door.

Traditional power plant is a 3 — liter diesels (249 and 258 HP), as well as large diesel 4.4 V8 339 outstanding “horses”. The range of petrol engines is represented by a 3-liter compressor V‑shaped “six” power of 340 and 380 HP At the top of the range — 5-liter “eight” with a capacity of 525 and 565 HP (both were 15 “horses” more powerful).

In all versions of suspension and steering retuned. The Terrain Response 2 system now asphalt three modes instead of one: “normal”, “comfort” and “dynamic”. Mass transfer box with a new Carter reduced to half a kilogram.

But not the engine one. In the cabin, redrawn in the style of Velara: beauty. It is dominated by the touch panel. The corresponding app downloaded to a smartphone, will allow you to control all functions of the seats, and a lot of them: heated armrests and footrest, 25 massage programs, including a “hot stone”: four heated massage element in the chair waves affect the back along the spine. While the rest of the surface of the chair is supported by the “room” temperature. For dessert — the access point Wi-Fi with 4G.

Now blind panoramic roof obedient gestures: my hand near the rear view mirror and she begins to move. All the Windows — the six-millimeter thickness.

How to ride a Range Rover? This we learn later. Orders are already being taken, but the live machine will not appear until the beginning of 2018.

What with fuel consumption? Declared for hybrid 2.8 liters of gasoline per hundred is not a fantasy?

In the brochures the English writes literally: “from 2.8 l/100 km”. A marketing trick. The fact that the European expenditure cycle NEDC implies that the hybrid battery needs to be fully charged, that is, the first 51 km the car drives on pure electricity. When braking during regeneration produces a little more electricity, which you can then spend… but if you take off from Moscow to Yekaterinburg, how much will have to burn gasoline in real world conditions, not stopping every hundred kilometers from outlet? Here we have this Range Rover — check.

The number of options without reproach even the English Lord You need to be a connoisseur of the brand to see external changes
