Check Out The 5th Gear Video Review Above …..
This Super 2012 Model 4.4 TDV8 Diesel Range Rover Vogue is finished in Sumatra Black with Piano Black Trim with Ivory Leather Interior with Black Piping and a stunning combination it is too in our opinion! Its travelled just 42,080 miles and was a dealer demonstrator (hence the most desirable spec) then just only lady owner/driver from 4 months old.
It has a full service history with Range Rover Main Dealer Williams @ 12,876 and 20,017 miles, then renowned Landrover Specialists James French @ 28,015 and 38,730 miles, the last service being in December 2015. Tyres are all recent Pirelli Scorpion with 5-7mm tread remaining.
Its equipped with the current, Euro 5-compliant 4.4-litre TDV8 power plant and an eight-speed automatic gearbox. This Engine uses parallel sequential turbocharging to deliver more power than the old 3.6 model with 308bhp and whopping 516lb ft/Ibs torque while still managing to reduce CO2 emissions and fuel consumption, too. In fact, it nudges 30.1mpg on the combined cycle; Land Rover proudly points out that this makes it the first Rangie to beat 30mpg! …. Indeed on our return trip to collect this Rangy we clocked a very impressive 37mpg on our Motorway trip home!
The eight-speed auto is controlled by a Jaguar-like rotary dial that rises from the base of the centre console. The 2011 model year also means new grilles and side vents on diesel models. The transmission represents a big gain over the six-speed auto, too, it’s still an impressive upgrade. This model also gets the Brembo brakes from its supercharged V8 petrol sibling. They are certainly up to the job of slowing the beast and provide the confidence required to use the Range Rover at the high cruising speeds it finds so effortless on tarmac.
Equipment level is Immense, Touch Screen Sat Nav, TV/DVD, DAB Radio, Harman Kardon Logic 7 Sound System, Multiplay CD, I-Pod, Bluetooth and USB Connector, Climate Control, Heated Front and Rear Seats, Electric Seats with Memory Drivers Side, Cruise Control, Xenons with Headlamp Wash, Parking Sensors Front and Rear with Camera too. Heated Front and Rear Screens, Electric Sunroof, Heated Retractable Door Mirrors, Auto Dipping Rear View Mirror, Multi Function Heated Steering Wheel with Gear Change Paddles, Telephone Control and much more too.
Auto Express Review
Car Magazine said
Let me guess: it’s faster, it’s greener.
Absolutely. The car industry’s rush to slash C02 never seems to impact on performance, and the new TDV8 Range is no exception. Power rises from 268bhp to 309bhp, torque from 472lb ft to 516lb ft, which drops the 0-60mph by more than a second and adds 6mph to the top end. Meanwhile, C02 falls from 294g/km to 253g/km (shaving £200 off your first year’s tax, a tenner a year thereafter), while mpg rises from 25mpg to 30mpg. No doubt the tall eighth-speed helps with all that.
How does it drive?
Really well. There are no surprises here – it’s still peerlessly comfortable, still pretty rolly, still quite understeery, still the antithesis of sporty, still brilliant. I did notice that the ride felt a little plusher, the body better controlled and front-end grip a little better than the 2010.5 model year car I also drove recently, but Land Rover isn’t claiming any chassis improvements and – cue self-administered slap across the knuckles – I can’t remember whether the wheel and tyre combo of both test cars were identical.
How about the new engine and ’box?
Both are hugely worthwhile additions. The engine is noticeably quieter and smoother, and the extra capacity makes it feel far healthier and better able to shrug off what a kerbweight of 2800kg. The new gearbox is smoother and quicker too, and the old car’s lag between dawdling and kicking down for urgent acceleration is all-but eliminated. Oh, and a Jag-style rotary controller usurps the conventional gear stick, and there are now paddles on the steering wheel, which sound a bit pointless but adds extra user-friendliness.
No big changes here, but this is a great SUV that benefits hugely from the addition of a quieter, faster, more refined and more frugal new engine and a swifter, slicker transmission.
A huge favourite of mine and with the new Mk4 model 4.4 SDV8 starting £82,850 the very last of the pre-owned 2011/12 model Range Rovers look tremendous value for money and the pinnacle in engineering and refinement for the L322 Mk3 Model!
