Pioneering the luxury SUV segment, the Range Rover has been around for more than 50 years and has been continuously refined throughout those years. On the outside, the fifth generation introduces an overall smoother body styling with a dash of minimalism thrown in as well.

More aerodynamic than its predecessor, the fourth generation, the fifth-gen/L460 has a drag coefficient of 0.3 thanks to its tighter panel gaps, flusher body trims, and retractable door handles. Exterior style-wise, the fifth-gen very is a subtle evolution from the fourth-gen, with its rear end being the most dramatic part of it all.

At the rear, the Range Rover L460 gets a boat tail-like design with thin taillights that feature a “Hidden until lit” concept. More body colours covering the rear end make the L460 look even much larger than it already is. As for the tailgate, the L460 gets the signature split tailgate with an optional ‘Tailgate Event Suite’ that makes the L460 perfect for a luxurious picnic should you desire to have one.

Under the hood, the Malaysian Range Rover L460 comes with the P530 powertrain which is essentially a BM-sourced 4.4-litre V8 twin-turbo engine. The Bavarian V8 makes 530 hp and 750 Nm, launching this behemoth of an off-roader from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, onward to a top speed of 250 km/h.

There are PHEV and MHEV powertrains for the L460, but currently, the only option for Malaysia is the V8 twin-turbocharged mill. An all-electric version is also set to make its world debut in 2024.

Inside, leather upholstery comes as standard, but customers do have the option to upgrade to an optional leather-free interior that combines Ultrafbarics and Kvadrat wool blend. The fifth-gen Land Rover comes in four, five, and a new seven-seater configuration (for the long wheelbase model), but to start, the Malaysian spec L460 is the standard wheelbase with a five-seater configuration.

With the minimalist theme flowing to the interior, there is now only one central touchscreen which is the 13.1-inch Pivi Pro infotainment unit that supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Behind the steering wheel is a 13.7-inch digital instrument cluster with customisable displays.

In the safety department, the Range Rover L460 comes with Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist, Driver Condition Response, Blindspot Assist, and Rear Traffic Monitoring. It also comes with a 3D surround camera and a Clearsight interior rear view mirror. °
