Land Rover has announced Australian availability of the updated-for-2012 Range Rover Vogue, bringing a number of modest styling tweaks, two new option packs and a new wheel design.
For 2012, the Range Rover Vogue gets a new gloss-black finish to its tail-lamp and headlight back-plates, and the front grille gets a new Narvik Black finish.
Door handles and side vents are now colour-coded to the body; down below are new 20-inch V-spoke alloy wheels.
Inside, the Grand Black wood veneers have a new 'Range Rover' inlay, while the Autobiography model gets a choice of Burr Maple Prussian Blue, Anthracite Lined Oak or Ash Burl veneers.
Features for the two option packs - Silver and Black - include Blind Spot Monitoring, Surround Camera System, Automatic High Beam Assist, Illuminated Sill Tread plates and an eight-inch Dual View infotainment screen.
The Range Rover Vogue and Autobiography engine line-up remains unchanged for 2012.
Land Rover's 3.6 litre TDV8 was replaced last year by a new 4.4 litre TDV8, producing 235kW and 700Nm of torque - a 15 percent boost over its predecessor.
Paired with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, the engine offers a 0-100km/h time of 7.5 seconds.
Despite the increase in power and capacity, the 4.4 litre V8 lists fuel consumption figures of just 9.4 l/100km, bettering the 11.1 l/100km of the old 3.6 litre engine.
The supercharged LR-V8 remains in the line-up, producing 375kW and 625Nm of torque and pushing the big Range Rover to 100km/h in 6.2 seconds.
Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, the big supercharged V8 lists fuel consumption figures of 14.9 l/100km.
Lastly, the naturally-aspirated LR-V8 produces 276kW and 510Nm, with a 0-100km/h time of 7.2 seconds. Fuel consumption for this engine is listed at 14.0 l/100km, with a six-speed auto.
Deliveries of MY12 Range Rover Vogue and Autobiography models will commence from October. Pricing commences at $160,500 for the Vogue 4.4L TDV8.
