New Range Rover on show at LA event

A long-wheelbased Range Rover has gone on display at the Los Angeles Auto Show, boasting more legroom for rear-seat passengers.

Decked out in an Autobiography Black specification, the new kid on the block proved popular with the thousands of car enthusiasts in attendance.

People sitting in the back of the LWB Range Rover will have an extra 7.3 inches for their legs, while the back seats will recline by 17 degrees compared to the standard version's eight degrees - making long journeys more comfortable.

But it will be a while yet before drivers can get their hands on the new model, with delivery not available until August 2014.

There is also no word on price, although buyers can expect to fork out a similar amount to previous Range Rovers.

The Autobiography Black trim comes with two fully electrically adjustable rear seats, a centre console that features electrically deployable leather tables, integrated USB charging sockets, enhanced stowage, and bespoke lighting.

Buyers will also be able to put their own unique stamp on the car thanks to Jaguar Land Rover's fledgling Engineered to Order division.

The United States and China are expected to be the main markets for the new high-end model, although it will come to the UK at some point.
