An additional high-impact aluminium wall was used to convey the vehicle’s structure and highlight its capability and performance; giving guests the perfect opportunity to engage with the fourth generation Range Rover.

About the 13MY All-New Range Rover
The world’s first SUV with a revolutionary lightweight all-aluminium monocoque body structure is 39% lighter than the steel body in the outgoing model, enabling total vehicle weight savings of up to 420kg.
The lightweight aluminium platform has delivered significant enhancements in performance and agility, along with a transformation in fuel economy and CO2 emissions.
In addition to the strong and rigid lightweight body, new aluminium front and rear chassis architecture has been developed with completely re-engineered four-corner air suspension. While the luxurious ride has been retained, the vehicle’s handling and agility have been significantly improved. The new suspension architecture delivers flatter, more confident cornering, with natural and intuitive steering feel.
The fourth generation of the unique Range Rover line, the all-new model has been developed from the ground up, capturing the innovative spirit and iconic design of the original model which changed the world of motoring when it was launched over 40 years ago.
The all-new Range Rover has a clean and elegant shape which is derived from a fresh interpretation of Range Rover design cues. While instantly recognisable as a Range Rover, the new vehicle takes a significant step forward with a bold evolution of the model’s iconic design language.
Speaking about the arrival of the all-new Range Rover to this region, Robin Colgan, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover MENAP, said, “With the Land Rover strength at its heart, the new model has been engineered from the ground up to be the most capable and refined Range Rover ever. While maintaining the essential, unique character of the vehicle that blends luxury, performance and unmatched all-terrain capability, the new design and revolutionary lightweight construction have enabled us to transform the experience for luxury vehicle customers, with a step change in comfort, refinement and handling.”
David Aziz, CEO- Automotive Products, MHD LLC added “The All-new Range Rover has already received an overwhelming response from customers in the Sultanate of Oman with pre-orders far exceeding expectations. The Range Rover is a true icon which has attracted a loyal following, and with the introduction of the All-new Range Rover to our showrooms, we expect this to continue for many years to come.”
The all-new Range Rover is available from December 2012 in MHD LLC showrooms across the Sultanate of Oman.
