It's an incredible achievement and testament to the dedication of our engineering team," said John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director.
The all-new Range Rover further demonstrates Land Rover's commitment to sustainability. It is 420Kg lighter than its predecessor and has outstanding results for occupant protection; achieving maximum points in numerous areas within the Euro NCAP tests.
