The Best and Sexiest New Range Rover Test

The best, the sexiest test of the new Range Rover. If you search for the new Range Rover test on Google, you will end up with countless test reviews. And they are more or less the same, even if I had done one or if I will do in future.

However, if you haven’t watched the review of the new Range Rover by Anastasia Tregubova yet, you miss a lot! Anastasia Tregubova is a Russian automotive journalist and did many car reviews on her YouTube channel.

Unfortunately, there is a minor problem! Anastasia is Russian and her content is made in Russian for Russian viewers. So, why I do recommend it? Because, it is the best review :) Honestly, I have no idea what she says during the ten minutes review of the new Range Rover but I really don’t mind.

I can imagine what she said; new Range Rover is very good at off road, seats are amazing, it drive excellent, acceleration is fantastic and etc and etc…

Anyway stop wasting your time reading the article, start watching the video :)

New Range Rover Sport on 26th March, 2013

New Range Rover Sport is very closer than you think. Actually, finally we will see a new Range Rover Sport. The existing model was a bit beyond the industry’s product life cycle for SUVs. BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne product life cycles are only seven years. Every seven-year, we see new model. However, Land Rover has a different strategy; their product life cycle is definitely longer than seven years and this leads to lose momentum against the competitors. Therefore, we tend to see less Range Rover Sport on the roads.
Hopefully, the new Range Rover Sport will be revealed soon on 26th March and a new face will appear on the roads. I think, new Range Rover Sport will look something between the Evoque and the new Range Rover. Basically, new Range Rover Sport may lose the bold design and may have a department store explorer design. 
The engines will be same with the new Range Rover, and Sport will be ligther as well. According to Land Rover, new Range Rover Sport will be something totally different in terms of driving experience. Land Rover says; faster, most responsive and most agile. These words are really bold statements.
I am more excited to see the new Range Rover Sport!
You can watch the reveal live on internet by registering to from this website (http://www.newrangeroversport.com).

New Range Rover from Mayfair, London

New Range Rover, designed by the inspiration of luxury fashion store in Mayfair, London. Lost the appearance that connect the off and on road driving in the same vehicle. Removes the real air vents to cool down the engine and introduces them as a design element. These are the words, which I have used since the new Range Rover was revealed by Land Rover. Many people also shared the same feelings with me for the new Range Rover. New look of Range Rover created an impression of an expensive handbag with robust design. 
These words were mentioned by me before I see the new Range Rover’s interior. Yesterday, I visited the Stratstone Land Rover dealer Mayfair, London. And there was the new Range Rover in black (now my favourite colour) in Vogue SE specification. Range Rover Vogue SE means, the car features nearly each of the optional equipment and literally there is nothing you can add more.
The black new Range Rover was fitted with 21-inch ‘off road’ friendly tires. And this improved the image luxury handbag dilemma. However, this did not prevent me to have look inside the cabin. And I can say one thing, cabin of the new Range Rover is a real improvement. The quality of plastic, the quality leather, the quality of craftsmanship is definitely in a new dimension. Unlike the exterior, interior of new Range Rover is new.
I am quite good at finding problems inside the cabin, wobbling plastic, huge gap between the parts, defect on leather. However, despite my all efforts interior of new Range Rover did not have any problems except one thing. The navigation screen.
I told this many times, the navigation screen of Range Rover does not produce high quality image, screen is not clear and you get a blur screen all the time. In terms if IT world, it is defined by pixel per inch (PPI). Apple offers one of the highest PPI index on their Retina display products (iPhone 5 PPI: 326). Increasing PPI results with clearer picture and higher quality. Anyone can understand the improvement on pixel per inch, you don’t need to be a nerd or engineer to identify the difference. 
Is it expensive? If you can have a Retina display iPad, this means it is not expensive to have one inside the new Range Rover! And I am sure that the customer will not change their mind if the price of Range Rover increase by €200 due to crystal clear navigation screen. Also, improvement on the navigation screen quality will match with the harmony of the interior.
The rest of the cabin of new Range Rover offers whatever you thing in terms of luxury. Memory seats with massage, heating and ventilation for each passenger. Panoramic glass roof offers a very pleasant environment inside the cabin. Ergonomics are quite good. Overall, there is basically nothing to worry about inside the cabin.
How it drives? I have no idea, I did not have chance to drive one. I am sure it is better thanks to lighter body.
My opinion, shall I buy one? For this interior, I would buy the new Range Rover and try not to look at it when I parked. Design of the new Range Rover is like ying and yan. Exterior and interior designs balance each other.

Can New Range Rover Do Off Road?

New Range Rover, the poshest SUV on market; resemble to expensive pair of high heels or bespoke handbag or tailored suit. Unfortunately, Range Rover lost its bad boy look and became a part of popular culture; shinny and fragile. When you first the see the new Range Rover, you never think it has the ability to do any type of off road.

New Range Rover gives the impression of drive on street of Mayfair, London with Tom Ford shoes and Louis Vuitton bag on the rear seats. And unfortunately, most of the people does this!

So the perception of Range Rover moved from real tough off road vehicle to real tough posing vehicle. However, this is not the truth. Underneath this fragile and post vehicle, a serious off road vehicle is lying.

And here is the proof from Land Rover USA! New Range Rover off road event in Utah. Keep in mind these Range Rovers are petrol powered and cannot provide the torque at the low-end, which helps in off road a lot. And tyres do not seem to be all terrain friendly.

New Range Rover in Morocco: All Photos Part 1 Exterior

The New Range Rover, I wrote many articles about it, many people talked about and many people saved money to buy it. However, this time I am not going to write about Range Rover’s features or weakness or comfort. I am going write New Range Rover’s Morocco global press event, which I was not able to attend as no one invited me.
Let me be honest, I am not that looking forward to attend press events. And I know that bloggers have a limited opportunity to attend a global press event. Also, I am quite happy with the online press office, where we can download all materials. However, Land Rover PR team did something this time, which made me very jealous. The New Range Rover’s global press event held in Morocco, where I wanted to visit for ages!
The environment of Morocco is fantastic, it gives limitless opportunities for taking great photos with excellent background. The sun is very warm, city landscape is totally unique. You don’t have these items in Europe and the cultural uniqueness in Europe and also another charm is the New Range Rover.
Anyway, I did not have chance to visit Morocco with Land Rover. But I upload the whole press photos of the New Range Rover in Morocco. And note to Land Rover PR team; next time when you arrange a global press event to a very warm country, I would be loving to attend :)
You will find all press photos of the New Range Rover in Morocco. Honestly, the red Range Rover in off-road looks like tracking with Christian Louboutin heels!Technical Details of the New Range Rover

New Range Rover, New Mondeo, New Audi A3, New Mini: Are They Really New?

Mini, Range Rover, Bentley Continental GT, Audi A3, and Ford Mondeo they have all one thing in common. All these cars look pretty exactly the same as their predecessors. If this similarity between the old and new models just occurred with one car, I would not write it.
However, this became a tradition with the cars that have very high volume. Automotive industry is not that robust to global economic crisis and they had a very bad experience during 2009. Therefore, taking decision in automotive industry became more vital. Especially, introducing a new model is not like old days. A decade ago, a new model means everything will be new. Design, technology, interior and many other things. This tradition still keeps going but in a new way, except exterior design.
High volume cars are the cash cows and no one want to lose them, especially with a new design. And this restricted the path of the designers. Many new car looks very similar to previous model with a higher price tag. This is a very good strategy to keep existing customers and motivate them to purchase the new model by offering better technology and efficiency. However the look did not change that much.
This strategy can save the customers, on the other hand you may lose your existing customer or they may not wish to purchase. Basically, you will buy a new car with new technology but it will look the same. And I hear this from many people, new Mini looks quite similar to my previous one, why I should buy the new one. My previous Mini does not look that old! That’s the result of introducing a new car that looks exactly the previous one.
Why I should buy the new one, while mine does not look that old!
Without a radical design, you will keep your customers loyal to brand and they may repurchase your car, however this repurchase period would be longer as their car does not look that old!
This will be the next problem of automotive industry. And I am sure that, a decade later designers will say that, we do not revise the previous model like in 2010s. We design everything from the scratch.
Keep in mind, Peugeot 207 looked exactly the same as 206 and people did not have the motivation to buy them, New Peugeot 208 is a brand new car and perception of customers definitely altered!
First photo is the old model, second photo is the new model!
