Video – 2014 Range Rover L Autobiography Black
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Land Rover showcased the 2014 Range Rover long wheelbase at the ongoing Los Angeles Auto Show. Along with the Range Rover L, the company also announced the range-topping Autobiography Black Edition. When you combine these two, you get the additional rear seat legroom of the LWB model, with the added luxury of the Black Edition, creating the S Class of SUVs.

While the LWB Range Rover continues to use the aluminium architecture as the regular models, Land Rover engineers have lengthened the body shell (just in front of the rear wheels) to increase the rear seat legroom by a further 140 mm.
The rear seats can be customized as a bench or as individual bucket seats, but we suggest you take a look at the latter. With this configuration, the seat back can be reclined by 17 degrees (which is 8 degrees more than the standard Range Rover). Added to that, you also get a center arm rest with electrically deployable work tables (with integrated USB ports), and access to the climate control and the individual entertainment screen.
Standard features on the Range Rover LWB include power door blinds and a panoramic sunroof. On the Black edition, Land Rover will offer two new, 7-spoke, 21- or 22-inch alloy wheels, and three exclusive color combinations.
