All-new Range Rover SVAutobiography combines high-tech with high-end luxury

What could be the most luxurious version of the Range Rover has just made its world premiere at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. Called the SVAutobiography, Land Rover claims it features new levels of luxury and combines high-tech amenities with a lavish interior.

As it is available only as a long wheelbase model, the Range Rover Autobiography comes with approximately 1.2 meters of legroom. Like the 2018 model year facelift, it gets the same exterior cues such as the revised front and rear fascia and new alloy wheel designs as such. Also, the SVAutobiography comes with rear doors that can be closed automatically with a push of a button.

Inside, the luxury SUV gets airline-style seats upholstered in leather and is complemented by 10-inch rear entertainment screens with 4G Wi-Fi connectivity, a concealed refrigerator between the two rear seats that can store two wine bottles and electrically-operated integrated rear tables. In addition, the right rear seat can be folded to allow storage of long items.

Other amenities found in the SVAutobiography include heated seats and foot rests, hot stone massage function, power-reclining seats, a TouchPro Duo infotainment system and a unique Zenith clock placed on the rear center console.

Three engine choices are available for the 2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography. First up is the 4.4-liter SDV8 turbo-diesel that generates 339 PS. Next is the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that belts out an impressive 565 PS. Lastly, there is also the P400e which gets a plug-in hybrid powertrain that produces 404 PS.

All models of the Range SVAutobiography are made by Jaguar Land Rover's (JLR) Special Vehicle Operations (SVO).
