You need no more than a one hand’s fingers to count vehicles
which can match the on-road performance and luxury of the Range
Rover. However, even fewer models are able to follow the
full-size Rover when they leave the pavement. The Ranger Rover
is really the benchmark for the full-size SUVs when it comes to
the luxury and performance but the SV Autobiography Dynamic
version certainly raises the things to even higher level. With
the supercharged V-8 engine and specially tuned suspension the
2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic combines the rich
interior and latest tech features for the experience that is
hard to match.
2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic: Design
Like other Range Rovers the 2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography
Dynamic features sleek and elegant appearance which distinguish
British models from the rest. Upright and sleek panels don’t
make this model look boxy yet clean and straight lines combined
with brand’s signature elements forms elegant and attractive
picture. However, the SV Autobiography Dynamic trim also adds
unique trim accents and components which further improve the
visual identity of this model.
The SV Autobiography Dynamic stands out with the attractive
21-inch alloy wheels which also have an alternative in 22-inch
alloys with the low-profile tires. This version also sits 0.3
inches lower to the ground than the regular version and adds
contrasting exterior finishes. The model also features unique
finishes on the hood, side vents and grille. Uniquely
accentuated bumpers and badges also make the difference.
The cabin and Features:
Inside the cabin the Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic
impresses with the rich textures and loads of tech features.
The diamond quilted leather upholstery with contrasting
stitching looks very rich and black veneer on the dash and door
panels also fit nice to the interior design. Details like the
unique finish of the metal surfaces also add nice contrasting
tone to the interior.
The SV Autobiography Dynamic also includes 20-way power and
heated front seats, the latest In Control Touch Pro
infotainment system, an impressive 1,700 W Meriden sound system
with 29 speakers, etc. The safety comes with the lane departure
warning, blind spot monitors, parking assist and adaptive
2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic: Powertrain
Under the hood, the 2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic
will hide a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine. Brand’s Special
Vehicle Operations division tuned this engine to produce an
impressive 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque making this version
the most powerful Range Rover ever. On the other hand, this
performance model is not an exception and it comes with the
8-speed autobox and standard full-time all-wheel drive. The
Terrain Response system is also there to adjust different
settings according to the road conditions offering also the
manual dial between the modes.
The model also features lower ride height and specially
calibrated anti-roll bar, dampers and springs combined also
with the retuned steering response. All that combined with the
quick acceleration will provide a great driving experience.
When we translate the capability of this hardware to the
numbers we will get pretty impressive scores for the 5,400-plus
vehicle with the 60 mph reachable in just 5.1 seconds. On the
other hand, top speed is limited to 155 mph. As for the fuel
economy, something around 16 mpg is what we should expect.
2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic: Price
Of course, all the capability and luxury the 2018 Range Rover
SV Autobiography Dynamic offers won’t come for free. This
impressive model will cost around $171,000.
