The 2013 Range Rover gives us a lesson in style.
Ah, finally, the fourth generation of the Range Rover made its public debut at the Paris Motor Show. The vehicle looks stunning with it’s new design that includes a revised front grille, new hedlights and taillights ant the all-aluminum monocoque body and chassis that has lowered the SUV’s weight by 420 kg. The wheelbase has been increased by 100mm and the four-corner air suspension has also been entirely retweaked for the new model. The new Range Rover has also been fitted with the new generation of the Terrain Response 2 that analyzes the terrain in front and chooses its own setting from one of the five available.

The opulent interior has been designed for five passengers and it has been fitted to impress with it’s luxury and state of the art technlogy. Some might even say that the car is a rolling supercomputer, but the displays from its foot-wide touchscreen are a little slow. Ever been so mad on the traffic that you fee like screaming? Well, the Range Rover’s Harman Kardon 720-watt audio system will make sure to calm you down.
