If you hire the Range Rover Autobiography 4.4 you will discover what a big turbodiesel V8 engine can do for this prestigious off-roader. The enormous pulling power of the muscular diesel certainly gives you shove in the back when you put your foot down – and offers some serious grunt if you need to tow a trailer or climb from a muddy field.
Today’s Range Rover boasts a lightweight aluminium body and chassis. Pair that with this beefy diesel and you find you can cover the 0-60mph benchmark sprint in just 6.5 seconds. Top speed is 135mph. This diesel SUV has the performance to embarrass many sports cars but retains the Range Rover’s poise and refinement. There’s little engine noise or vibration in the cabin.
The handling is surprisingly agile too. This is thanks in part to the full-time four-wheel drive and the impressive adaptive air-suspension. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard and the diesel V8 returns around 33mpg, which is creditable for such a large and powerful vehicle.
The cabin’s high level of finish will add to this feeling of luxury. The interior opulence includes heated and cooled massaging seats and a superb multi-speaker Meridian hi-fi system.
