While there is little argument that the new Range Rover has found massive following globally despite the relatively high price tag, customers are still yearning for a better and more exclusive car. With an eye on the fledgling Asian markets where most Range Rovers are chauffeur-driven, Land Rover has unveiled a new long wheelbase version.

The increased length has freed up more legroom at the rear – almost 8 inches more, which has paved for an exclusive twin individual seat option apart from the regular bench. The seats now recline 17 inches which nearly double than the shorter wheelbase version. The individual seats at the rear get an array of exclusive features like individual screens and a foldable table with even a slot for an iPad.

Externally, there is almost no change in design. Only in profile can you note the extra large rear door and the massive length of the vehicle. Just in case, there is a small L badge behind the front wheel arches to signal that it is a long wheel base version.

Obviously price will be high. We expect it to touch almost Rs 3.5 crore when and if it reaches India.
