Deciding to lease a luxury SUV opens you up to a wide range of options. There are some great offerings from BMW, Mercedes, and Audi, or if the budget stretches you could be driving a Maserati, a Bentley, or even a Rolls-Royce. Or you could just do the job properly in the first place and get yourself a brand-new Range Rover.
In terms of luxury SUVs, Range Rover has led by example for 50 years now. It offers supreme comfort, refinement, and an unstoppable approach to the bumpier bits of the planet. The fifth generation Range Rover features updated looks, new technology inside and out, and for the first time, space for seven adults.
The New Range Rover shows its design heritage in the short front overhang, regal front end, upright windscreen, and distinctive boat tail rear. The elegant lines are accentuated with flush glazing, a hidden waist rail finisher and seamless laser-welded roof joints. The idea is to make it look like it was hewn from a solid block of metal. The distinctive hidden-until-lit rear lights are also set to become a Range Rover signature feature.

There’s a lot of new technology in the latest Range Rover models as well.
It’s the first to use Land Rover’s new flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture, which can accommodate internal combustion, plug-in hybrid and 100 per cent electric powertrains. The new models are available with a choice of efficient mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains and four, five or seven-seat interiors across Standard and Long Wheelbase body designs. A pure-electric Range Rover – the first all-electric Land Rover – will join the line-up in 2024. Until then the plug-in hybrid is likely to be the one to opt for, providing CO2 emissions below 30g/km and a pure-electric driving range of around 60 miles.
The Range Rover’s customary off-road capability comes from Land Rover’s pioneering Integrated Chassis Control system, which controls an impressive array of chassis technologies. All-Wheel steering provides greater high-speed stability and the tightest turning circle of any Land Rover, and advanced electronic air suspension preemptively reacts to the road ahead using eHorizon navigation data.
The interior is as refined as you would expect from a Range Rover. Lots of fine materials, comfortable seats, creature comforts, and all with that air of effortless elegance you expect.
The New Range Rover offers voice control, so you can manage everything from infotainment features and music track selection to navigation or phone contacts without taking your hands off the wheel. Land Rover has even gone to the trouble of turning the whole car into the equivalent of high-end noise cancelling headphones – a series of microphones on the outside of the vehicle and headrest speakers on the inside create personal quiet zones for the occupants that further reduce cabin noise.

Also unveiled was the New Range Rover SV range.
This is for the discerning driver who wants something a little bit special, as long as you’ve got the patience to wait until they go on sale in 2022.
The SV range is the epitome of Range Rover luxury and personalisation. Materials in the Range Rover SV include lustrous plated metals, smooth ceramics, intricate mosaic marquetry, as well as a choice of high-grade leathers or sustainable non-leather ’Ultrafabrics’. This hand-crafted model will be the first to carry the new ceramic SV roundel that will identify all new Land Rover vehicles launched by Special Vehicle Operations in the future.
The SV Serenity and SV Intrepid will introduce two-tone front-to-rear contrasting interior colours, while the sumptuously finished four-seat SV Signature Suite features an electrically deployable Club Table and refrigerator. If you’re used to turning left when you board a plane this is the Range Rover for you.
The New Range Rover has the potential to be the most desirable ever made, and there’s nothing to suggest it will give up the title of must-have luxury SUV without a fight.
If you’re tempted you’d better let us know. The brand-new Range Rover is already available to order for leasing , and the longer you leave it the longer the waiting list is likely to become.
