All-new Range Rover at AIMS 2012

Range Rover at AIMS 2012
Land Rover will be taking the covers off its newest and most luxurious model yet, the all-new Range Rover at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show – for just the second time in the world!

Fresh from its world unveiling at the Paris Motor Show in September, the all-new Range Rover will be a highlight of the Australian International Motor Show as it shows off a new modern interpretation of the classic Range Rover design cues.

The all-new SUV has been engineered from the ground up and is the most capable and refined Range Rover ever, capturing the innovative and iconic design of the original model, but with a bold evolution.

Land Rover has ensured the all-new Range Rover sits at the pinnacle of SUV refinement, with a spacious and luxurious interior, enhanced all-terrain performance and a truly composed driving experience.

The all-new Range Rover will be the world’s first luxury SUV with a revolutionary lightweight all-aluminium monocoque body coupled with all-new aluminium front and rear chassis’, resulting in a dramatic weight saving of up to 420 kilograms.

This in turn results in significant enhancements in performance and agility, along with a transformation in fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

“Land Rover really did change the global automotive landscape when it launched the world’s first luxury SUV, the classic Range Rover over 40 years ago,” said Russ Tyrie, Show Director.

“Evolutions of this model over the years saw exciting increases in refinement, performance and comfort – and the fourth generation Range Rover certainly takes luxury SUVs to the next level.

“We are very excited that it will be revealed at the Australian International Motor Show, which also marks the first time it is seen in the Southern Hemisphere.”

Land Rover will also conduct the Australian reveal of the 2013 Freelander 2, which has had a premium overhaul to increase driver comfort, convenience and enjoyment.

Featuring new exterior design features, upgraded equipment levels and a new lightweight petrol engine, the five-star Euro NCAP safety-rated 2013 Freelander 2 is sure to impress all who see it.

The 2012 Australian International Motor Show will be held at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour from October 19-28, 2012.
