Spending more than $150,000 on an SUV might sound like madness, but this becomes a reality when you sit in the 2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography. You are going to change your mind as soon as you take a look at the SUV’s most luxurious specs. The new vehicle is crafted with absolute care and precision that evidently culminate in an exquisite attention to detail.
This Range Rover version emanates from the British brand’s famous special vehicles department. For that reason, no need to justify whatever makes it luxurious because every single aspect oozes enthusiastically. When you sit in any variant of the inbound Range Rover SVAutobiography, you get to appreciate the cabin’s top-notch quality. Everything feels fine right from tactility to presentation.
2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography – Spotted in Ruffina Red Paint
You can easily differentiate the 2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography from the standard Range Rover. From the outside, the Range Rover Autobiography model sports the “Graphite Atlas” finish on the lateral outlets, bonnet finisher as well as the grille and front bumper accents. Upon a closer look, you will also notice that the tailgate finisher and script feature the same dark silver finish. The model we spotted here came in Ruffina Red—a gloss ultra-metallic paint costing around $8,500.
Thanks to major revisions to the springs, knuckles dampers and links, the SVAutobiography now showcases the new-found athleticism. Some of the litheness is accomplished by lowering the ride height by up to 0.315 inches. Moreover, the SV Autobiography conveys a dynamic response system that reduces body lean mid-corner. The new model offers an option of 21-or 22-inch alloy wheels. Red Brembo brake calipers (the first-ever for the British brand) appear to complement these wheels.
Inside the Cabin
Inside the 2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography is where several niceties reside. Seemingly, this is where you get to understand the actual meaning of the ancient saying that goes “You Get What You Pay For” because every inch looks great. Each millimeter of the car’s cabin comes covered in leather, including the roof. Its cabin similarly sports diamond quilting and contrast stitching that match the ebony-perforated leather headliner.
The variety of interior features and functions highlight the knurled design theme. These comprise the drive select rotary shifter, Start/Stop button, foot pedals and armrest adjusters as well as the key fob. Solid metal seat rail finishers, Satin Brushed cup-holder and metal coat hooks comprising knurled detailing complement these features.
2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography – Comes with Powerful Engine
At the heart of the 2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography is a powerful drivetrain. This engine brings the excellent performance and agility to complement the vehicle’s dynamic appearance. The incoming SV Autobiography gets its juice from a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that produces 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque. It also comes with a set of quad exhausts at the back.
Launch Date and Price of the 2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography
The Range Rover has been reluctant to unveil any details concerning the 2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography price and release date. But, as usual, we’ve got our best estimates. We believe the inbound SV Autobiography graces the auto showrooms by the end of 2017. The entry-level variant will start at $171,990.
