Land Rover has boosted the appeal of its Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models this week, introducing new features and improved economy.

A new ‘All-Terrain Progress Control’ (ATPC) system is now available, which acts as an off-road cruise control.

Drivers set the system to travel at speeds between two and 30km/h over whichever surface is beneath their Range Rover at the time, and ATPC maintains the steady pace by controlling both throttle and brake applications.

The system harnesses wheel-spin occasionally associated with climbing steep gravel hills, and Land Rover says ATPC ensures even a ‘novice’ off-roader can take advantage of the Range Rover’s capabilities.

Launched recently into the UK market, the ATPC system is a £175 (AU$280) option; available on SDV6, SCV6 and V8 Supercharged Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models when specified with dual-range transmission and ‘Terrain Response 2’.

Six-cylinder engines in Range Rover variants are now more economical, with the TDV6 3.0 litre turbo-diesel unit leading the way returning a new fuel figure of 6.9 l/100km.

The new figure represents an 8.5 percent improvement in the Range Rover, and a 5.7 percent improvement in the Sport.

The SDV6 diesel in the Sport isn’t far behind, with a new fuel figure of 7.0 l/100km, while the 3.0 litre supercharged petrol V6 improves 1.9 percent to return 10.5 l/100km in the Sport and 10.7 l/100km in the heavier Range Rover.

Power and torque in the SDV6 have increased by 10kW and 100Nm respectively, now measuring 225kW and 700Nm.

A new Head-Up Display (HUD) will soon be available in Range Rover models, as previewed at the Paris Motor Show.

Available data will include road speed, gear selection, cruise control information and satellite navigation instructions, which the driver can pre-set before beginning their journey.

For 2015, the Range Rover Sport adds ‘Kaikoura Stone’ to the range of available paint finishes, while both Range Rover derivatives will soon be available in ‘Yulong White’.



The new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport features are expected to be available locally from March 2015, while the HUD system will join the options list during Q2 next year.

Pricing will be announced closer to launch.
