All-New 2023 Range Rover Arrives In The Philippines With A Starting Price Of P 15.990M


Coventry Motors Corporation, the official distributor of Land Rover in the Philippines has officially launched the latest version of its flagship SUV: the all-new 2023 Range Rover.

Blending comfort, composure, and all-terrain capability, the 2023 Range Rover sits on the brand’s new Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA-Flex). It will be made available in both standard and long wheelbase versions, with four, five, or seven seats.

Standard across the range is all-wheel steering and which turns the rear wheels by up to seven degrees resulting in a turning radius of 5.5 meters—smaller than a compact sedan or SUV. It also has electronic air suspension.



Locally, the engine range starts with the D350 which is powered by a 3.0-liter inline-6 turbo diesel engine with 350 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque. This is followed by the P440e which is a plug-in hybrid with 440 horsepower and 620 Nm of torque. At the top is the P530 which serves up 530 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque thanks to a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine. All engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic driving all four wheels.

Standard across the Range Rover range are advanced adaptive LED headlights (Digital LED) with animated directional indicators, and a power tailgate. Wheel sizes start at 22 inches for the standard wheelbase, and move up to 23 inches for the long wheelbase version. Customers can also choose between the Nickel Atlas (bronze), Shadow (black), and Autobiography Packages.

Inside, the all-new Range Rover features perforated semi-aniline leather seats with 20-way heated/ventilated seat (24-way in the long wheelbase version). The long wheelbase version also adds the option of captain’s seats at the back (Executive Class Comfort Plus). In terms of infotainment, it has the largest-ever touchscreen fitted in a Land Rover at 13.1 inches. The curved, floating screen provides control with haptic feedback of all the major vehicle functions. The Pivo Pro-based system works in conjunction with the 13.7-inch interactive driver display. Meanwhile, depending on specification, the rear seats can enjoy the rear seat entertainment system with 11.4-inch HD touchscreens with HDMI inputs. A Meridian 3D Surround Sound System is standard. Other functionalities include power assisted doors (soft-close is standard) and active noise cancellation speakers built into the headrests.



Safety-wise, the 2023 Range Rover comes with autonomous emergency braking for the front and back, blind spot monitors with rear cross traffic monitors, adaptive cruise control with steering assist, lane keep assist, front and rear parking sensors, and a 3D surround camera.

Since the all-new Range Rover is on a by-order basis, pricing depends on the exact configuration chosen by the client. However, pricing starts at P 15.990-million.

  8. our country really sucks. we just can't buy really nice things. US website price for a base RR is less than 6M pesos converted. afaik only the LC200 had a near 1:1 pricing vs US. will only consider this RR at this price point if the moolah was just dropped on my doorstep. hahaha

    1. you might want to read about tariffs, duties, TRAIN law, and US automotive industry.

      our cars are taxed based on overall prices, and not engine specs unlike other countries. the difference? the overall prices include engine specs, accessories, amenities, etc.

      with engine specs as basis, you can now categorize cars according to their uses, and the gov can tax them aptly. a city car with small displacement engine? saktong tax lang because mobility is the purpose of those cars. a 5.0 bi-turbo 500 HP sports car? tax them enough because it fits their lifestyle.

      no one can compare US market with anyone else. not even Europe nor Japan. they have their own set of standards and taxation that cannot be applied elsewhere. it's like asking an ilocano to take a batangueno test. same content, different language. US auto industry does not want to accommodate and accept regulations from Japan and Europe. this is why they have exclusive cars there, and recalls across north america region only.

      reliability issues aside, you also cannot compare LX and RR. LX and Lexus has to prove that it can do what other lux brands can. Lexus has no history/heritage like that of other lux cars. their designs are fitting because they appeal to the millenials and young professionals. RR does not need to prove because it is THE Range Rover. heritage and capability are there. they appeal to the old crowd, but i think with the new RR, they would like to appeal to millenials as well. i think this is also the reason why the LX has IN YOUR FACE strong design because it has to prove something. while RR is so refined and minimal lines. if you know the RR, you know what you are looking at. you cannot compare the two.
