Article by Christian A., on February 6, 2012

The Range Rover continues to set benchmarks in terms of performance, luxury and capability as it celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. It goes beyond the 2012 model year upgrades, which were presented in October 2011, by developing the Range Rover lineup to add three new Special Editions -- the TDV8 Westminster, Supercharged Autobiography and TDV8 Autobiography.

New Range Rover Westminster Edition will replace the TDV8 Vogue and Vogue SE models in the range. Compared to its predecessors, it comes substantially equipped with a more extensive collection of new features that increased the automobile's comfort levels for everyone. It also boasts of a prestige style. The vehicle is run by the powerful but refined 4.4-liter TDV8 engine with eight-speed automatic transmission.

Westminster Edition's exterior is characterized by the bright 'Noble' finish to the side vents and front grille, 'Titan' silver lower splitter bar and fog lamp bezels, 'Westminster' badging as well as 10-spoke, 20-inch alloy wheels.

Meanwhile, the interior features illuminated tread plates. It is furnished with Grand Black lacquer trim elements, luxury carpets and bright-finished pedal finishers. The seats in the front have cooling and heating functions. In addition, the in-car entertainment system features a 19-speaker 1,200W harman/kardon LOGIC7 surround sound system and Range Rover's ground-breaking Dual View infotainment screen.

The new Westminster Edition comes with a selection of seven exterior colors, with five interior color combinations. Equipment specifications that are standard to the vehicle include automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, electric sunroof, memory setting for the steering wheel, Park Distance Control with rear-view camera, a heated leather-trimmed steering wheel and driver's seat and rear-view mirror. The Range Rover TDV8 Westminster Edition is priced at £69,995.

2012 Range Rover solidifies its position as the most luxurious sports utility vehicle in the world, with a host of feature upgrades and style changes that include new option packs for its Autobiography and Vogue models.

According to John Edwards, Global Brand Director for Land Rover, the Range Rover has always been the definitive luxury sports utility vehicle or SUV, and remains so. Moreover, its off-road performance matches the SUV’s comfort levels and its performance. He also contends that new equipment levels, as well as revised styling, plus generously specified option packs, all make the Range Rover the one SUV to beat in 2012.

Additionally, the 2012 Land Rover Range Rover’s exterior had been enhanced, with detail styling changes. What’s more, its headlamp and taillamp back plates come in gloss black finish, while its front grille surround is in Narvik Black. The SUV’s door handles and its side vents also match its body color to create a modern and integrated look. New 20-inch V spoke alloy wheels come in mid silver finish and with a Range Rover brand center cap round off these exterior changes.

The 2012 Range Rover also has Grand Black wood veneers that now feature a crisp inlay that reads “Range Rover.” For the Autobiography model’s veneers, you can choose from Burr Maple Prussian Blue, Ash Burl, and Anthracite Lined Oak. Meanwhile, the Vogue model has a highly distinctive look, complete with unique tailgate badging, which reflects your choice of either the Vogue Black Pack or the Vogue Silver Pack.

Both derivatives include an audio system (Logic 7, 1200W Harman Kardon High Dynamics), cooled and heated passenger seats, and an 8-inch infotainment screen (Dual View), all of which allow you to check the navigation display as the passenger watches a video and relaxes.

In addition, the Vogue Silver Pack gives you a Supercharged Design Pack that comprises of a front grille and side vents in bright noble finish.
