Building on the luxury of the HSE variant, customers can now select between a range of options including a distinct Ebony/Cirrus two-tone interior theme with Windsor leather seats, or Grand Black Lacquer wood trimming. A new Straight Grained Walnut wood and leather steering wheel is also available, with matching wood veneer sets.

On the outside, 20-inch five-spoke alloy wheels are on offer, featuring a silver polished finish. These wheels take the available sets to four. There’s also some fresh exterior colours, including Aruba, Kaikoura Stone and Montalcino Red, and a new premium metallic white called Yulong.

Under the bonnet the new model comes with three different engine options. All are matched up to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and a comprehensive four-wheel drive system.

Starting out the lineup is a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel ‘TDV6’ producing 155kW, followed up by the ‘SDV6’ with 183kW. The TD delivers an average fuel consumption rate of 7.8L/100km while the SD uses 8.0L/100km.

Those after a petrol engine get Land Rover Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre supercharged V6, which develops 250kW and 450Nm. It replaces the outgoing 5.0-litre V8, and offers an average consumption of 11.5L/100km (down from 14.1L/100km).

The MY2015 is available to order now with deliveries arriving in November. Land Rover Australia will announce the local lineup and pricing shortly.
