2013 Range Rover reduces weight, enhances appearance

The 2013 Land Rover Range Rover brings in a new era of SUV with a lightweight body of 700lbs and a familiar profile reminiscent of the Range Rover Evoque. The reduction in body weight goes a long way in improving fuel efficiency and on-road dynamics. Despite embracing a more sophisticated silhouette, the SUV manages to retain its off-road ability, a feature very typical to the Range Rover since the ’80s. The 2013 Range Rover takes its design cues from the 1970’s model but sans the bulky aesthetics. It embraces a sleeker appearance, and the interior is more or less similar to its previous models, with the only extra addition of the automaker’s infotainment system.
