There aren’t many luxury SUV’s with Land Rover Range Rover’s feature list, and certainly not many off-roaders like 2016 Range Rover SVAutobiography model. It might not be top-of-the-line model since Black Edition and H&H models sit above it, but SVAutobiography grade is still top class for most people without a doubt, and above mentioned models are still special editions after all. The Range Rover SVAutobiography 2016 will be available for sale from summer 2015.
2016 Range Rover SVAutobiography review
2016 Range Rover SVAutobiography is one of the most luxurious SUV’s around and it shows even from the outside. Available exclusively in long wheelbase edition, SVAutobiography is almost 200 inches long. It features boxy design like any other model, but gets plenty of chrome all over. Mentioned Black Edition models, which are exclusive built in overall 100 copies for the U.S. market only, get different grille, wheels and paint, most of them in black, of course.
Range Rover’s luxurious interior was never questioned, and 2016 Range Rover SVAutobiography is the leader of the lineup. This means that it offers all kinds of leather covers across the whole cabin. Extra large panoramic sunroof, natural wood accents and cabin’s utter spaciousness are all inclusive. Don’t even let us start with extraordinary Black Edition trim which gets couple of spacious rows of seats, all with their own memory. Furthermore, there are couple of seat-mounted entertainment screens, 10.2-inches in diameter. Car’s sheer weight and height guarantees safety, but there’s plenty of advanced electronic safety systems as well. Rearview camera, blind spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, parking assist, lane departure warning and plenty more are all standard on SVAutobiography.
Range Rover SVAutobiography 2016 specs
Powertrain of the Range Rover SVAutobiography 2016 is more than impressive as there are no less than four options to choose from. Smallest 3.0-liter diesel V-6 makes 254 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque, while hybrid diesel model shares the same internal combustion unit and adds an electric motor for a total output of 335 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. 4.4-liter diesel V-8 unit powerplant puts up 335 horses and 546 lb-ft of torque, while the strongest and only petrol engine, 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 generates as much as 542 ponies and 502 lb-ft of torque. All these engines resonate with sheer power and are more than able to carry Range Rover’s own weight and additional 7,700 pounds through towing capacity. All models come with mandatory all-wheel drive and 8-speed automatic transmission.
However, fuel efficiency isn’t the biggest advantage of this luxury SUV. 14 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway are the figures from strongest supercharged V-8 engine, while best numbers come from hybrid diesel engine rated at 35 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway. Don’t get your hopes high; we know that these figures are great, but this type of engine isn’t available in the states (only 5.0L petrol unit is), and these ratings are also from Europe.
