Land Rover’s latest line-up sees exciting developments across the range, including more powerful new engines offering greater fuel efficiency, dynamic upgrades and striking exterior and interior design improvements for the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Discovery 4.
“With August sales up 11.6% against the same period last year, we are now starting to see early signs of stability in the UK market" said John Edwards, managing director Land Rover UK.

Our range for 2010 is without doubt our strongest ever, and early signs show that these new products are receiving an outstanding reception in the marketplace.”
Autobiography limited edition Sport versions join Range Rover Sport line-up
An unprecedented level of choice for Range Rover Sport customers is now available, with a stunning new Autobiography Sport limited edition, on 3.6 liter TDV8 and Supercharged derivatives. Available in a variety of themes, only 500 units will go on-sale in the UK featuring duo-tone premium leather interiors as well as unique exterior design cues including the grille, vents and 20" diamond turned finish alloy wheels, all presented for the first time at the IAA.
All feature a dramatic new body kit which is tailored to accentuate the sophisticated style of the 2010 Range Rover Sport.
The Range Rover - now with enhanced rear seat luxury
For 2010, Land Rover’s flagship Range Rover offers a powerful new 5.0 liter supercharged LR-V8 engine (alongside the popular TDV8), revolutionary interior technologies and enhanced driving dynamics. Now, a series of further
refinements are available as options across the range, with the focus on enhanced luxury for rear seat passengers.
Land Rover is introducing electronically-controlled reclining rear seats, which will be particularly valued by chauffeur-driven customers. Controlled by the rear passengers and available with heated and cooled functionality, four-way adjustable lumbar support and airline-style winged head restraints. Rear seat passengers can also enjoy significantly increased leg room by remotely moving the front passenger seat to its forward-most position (when the front passenger seat is unoccupied). The addition of laminated rear-door privacy glass significantly reduces interior noise levels too.
The peerless luxury and exclusivity provided by the Range Rover is given a further boost by the addition of four sumptuous new interior color combinations on the Autobiography series, and the availability of the world-class Logic 7 1200W Harman Kardon High Dynamics audio system, with 15 independent channels driving 19 premium quality speakers.
