    Land Rover Teases Range Rover SV Coupe's Interior

      Would you look at that interior!


    When Land Rover first introduced the Range Rover back in 1970, it was only available as a two-door model. The last two-door model would roll off the assembly in 1994, never to be seen again. But Land Rover is planning to bring back the two-door Range Rover as a limited-run model.

    Yesterday, Land Rover dropped a teaser picture of the upcoming Range Rover SV Coupe. The picture is an overhead shot of the SV Coupe's interior which looks like what you'll find in a highly-spec Range Rover. The front seats are upholstered in white leather, while the back seats come in blue. The dash appears to be from the new Velar with a similar center stack layout.

    “The Range Rover SV Coupé is a highly compelling design with peerless refinement and uncompromised sophistication from its breathtaking exterior proportions to its sumptuous, beautifully appointed, interior. This is a vehicle that will resonate on an emotional level,” said Land Rover lead designer Gerry McGovern.

    Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) will be tasked with building the SV Coupe. The plan is to only build 999 models for worldwide distribution.

    We'll have more information when Land Rover debuts the SV Coupe at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6th.

    • Land Rover announces the introduction of a new addition to the Range Rover portfolio – the Range Rover SV Coupe
    • Coupe design pays homage to the original Range Rover during the Land Rover brand’s 70th Anniversary year
    • Limited to 999 units, the Range Rover SV Coupe will be offered to buyers worldwide, each hand-assembled by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations in Warwickshire, UK
    • The all-new model will make its world premiere at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show as part of the Jaguar Land Rover press conference at 11:45 CET, live streamed on www.landroverusa.com

    (MAHWAH, N.J.) - January 23, 2018 – Today, Land Rover announces the introduction of an all-new full-size luxury SUV coupe. The Range Rover SV Coupe will be a dramatic and desirable addition to the Range Rover model portfolio featuring a seductive body design and a supremely refined interior.

    “The Range Rover SV Coupe is a highly compelling design with peerless refinement and uncompromised sophistication from its breathtaking exterior proportions to its sumptuous, beautifully appointed, interior. This is a vehicle that will resonate on an emotional level,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer.

    The SV Coupe is a celebration of the Range Rover bloodline, with a dramatic two- door silhouette which alludes to its unique heritage – the Range Rover launched as a two-door in 1970 – while being thoroughly modern and contemporary.

    The interior image released today illustrates that traditional skills have combined with the latest technologies throughout the cabin to exquisite effect. Stunning to the eye, sumptuous to the touch, it is a light, contemporary space where attention to detail has been paramount.

    Land Rover Design and Special Vehicle Operations have created the Range Rover SV Coupe, which will be hand-assembled at the SV Technical Center in Ryton-on- Dunsmore in Warwickshire, UK. Production will be limited to no more than 999 vehicles for worldwide distribution.

    “Land Rover created the luxury SUV sector with Range Rover almost 50 years ago. In launching the new Range Rover SV Coupe, we will offer clients an alluring combination of peerless luxury and rarity,” said John Edwards, Land Rover Special Operations Managing Director. “Unveiling this special vehicle at the Geneva International Motor Show in March, during Land Rover’s 70th Anniversary year, will be a defining moment for Land Rover, the Range Rover portfolio and Special Vehicle Operations.”

    I think the interior looks great, I like that it is different, who says the front and rear seats have to be the same color.    Not sure about this coupe Range Rover idea and that sort of defeats the purpose of a fancy back seat of you can’t get to it.

    Nice, I can live with a two tone interior, but the wife would hate it as it is not uniform for her OCD approach to life. My only dislike is the White Leather. What morons think White is a smart move? Talk about showing all the dirt fast, high maintenance if you want it to stay looking bright and clean, White interior is just not a smart move for the Lazy Human population.

    Would be nice to have a Forest Green Leather interior with a warm earth brown. dash and doors.

    I have come to HATE, Yup HATE these interiors that have wall dividers in the back seat. Can we isolate and separate people any more ? Even in a luxury high end interior, I just do not see the need for that center mass on top of wasted seating space.

    It's leather, not cloth. You wipe it off like you would black, brown, or tan.

    It's because they open up and there's gadgets in there. Nobody in their right mind WANTS to sit three deep back there to begin with. This gives you compartments, cup holders, charging ports, etc. 

    " Two individual fully adjustable seats are complemented by an extended and re-designed centre console with electrically deployable walnut tables, integrated USB charging sockets, enhanced stowage and bespoke lighting.

    That is what's going on back there for their Holland & Holland Range Rover that looks very similar. 

    Lost a seat nobody would use and gained actual bucket seats and much more.

    Beautiful interior from above, looks like.  Kind of unusual for the front seats and back seats to not match. I like the white leather.  Good to not see it on the steering wheel rim, I've seen some cars (Chrysler 200/300) with really light leather or vinyl on the steering wheel rim, seems like that would get grubby quickly.    Will be interesting to see how the outside looks..

    I know it is leather but every WHITE Leather interior looks dirty and cheap fast. I have never seen any auto builder have a white leather interior that still looks good only months after use. Just the wrong color in an Auto in my opinion.

    I have see plenty of interiors that have had those things without the dividing wall. Rolls, Bentley, MB in the S class. 

    I just do not see the needs to isolate people that way with the wall, my opinion on it.

    A bench seat seems more appropriate for a family CUV/SUV  or minivan...a luxury car or luxury SUV is supposed to be cosseting at most maybe 4 people in comfort.

    Exactly. An open bench for 5 humans is the opposite of luxurious. Buy a Tahoe if that's what you want. 

    I disagree, there have been captain chair bench seats that are very luxurious and gives you that option of having the mid seat. 

    For me having individual captain chairs here is fine and I would like that with a center stack between the chairs but the open space in the foot area. The two rear passengers should be able to easily get out either door and not have to step over a center wall divide.

    All you stated and the story states it will have can be done without having to have the wall there.

    This can still be very luxurious with two captain chairs and no center wall in the foot area.

    Which ones are as luxurious as these? Or even close?

    The Bentyaga similarly has a bucket seat interior, though the rear console and front console aren't connected, leaving room to clamber through...

    The image 'captain's chairs' style seating conjures up for me are 80s conversion vans and RVs.

    Some Range Rovers like the Sport seem to have a more bench seat rear seat w/ fold down armrest, while the big Range Rover (Autobiography Edition) goes for buckets w/ a dividing console..

    MB S-Class comes to mind!

    See the source image

    Cadillac CT6 is a Perfect Example.

    To just name a few. I see no reason they could not do this kind of seating in the Rover.

    @dfelt having driven and sat in the CT6, there is no way in hell that I would have anyone sit in the middle seat. It is way too uncomfortable.

    I can understand that and would not expect that 99.9% of the time anyone would sit there, but it gives options and looks very nice plus the two outside seats are very comfy equal to captain chairs in my opinion.

    @ccap41 and @Cubical-aka-Moltar Yes we have the old style Captain Chairs and what MB and Cadillac has done as well as others is make a modern 21st century take on them that allows for better flexibility over the captain chairs.

    One factoid in the first paragraph may have been missed in the various seat discussions--this is a 2dr coupe, not a 4dr.  Very cool to see them doing a largish 2dr SUV.

    Yup, that did not register and now makes my argument against the stupid wood wall even more so as in a 2 door, if you cannot get out the drivers side you now have to crawl over the wall to get out the passenger side.

    Still do not like that middle wood block. A back seat setup like the CT6 or S-Class is the better way to go I think. If you do not like the middle section then yes two captain chairs with your wood section between them but the foot area is open allowing you to get out either front door.

    It's funny, it didn't register with me either (until I read another article)...I was thinking  4dr coupe SUV like the X6 or GLE.    Getting out of a 2dr backseat is a PITA in most cars, this would make it worse..though there have been 2dr coupes w/ full length consoles...

    I did wonder why not put the navy seats in front because those will get used more, and put the white seats in back where they will get less abuse.

    Just a guess but I think it has to do with the overall flow of the color scheme. with white seats in the middle as opposed to on an "end" of the vehicle with the dash incorporated in it seems to flow more. Otherwise it would be dark in back, white in middle, and dark up front again. that seems more awkward to me. 

    Other than that, your assessment does make more sense based on wear and where people will be most.

    Hahaha I completely missed the whole two-door part, too!

    Wow, screw this vehicle.

    • Thanks for the information. The Model X seems to have an abundance of space, everywhere.  The Lyriq just seems to have such a large "engine bay" that could/should still be able to have at least 2 cubic feet of space available. It isn't like their rear cargo space is THAT much larger than what they chose to compare it to.  It's a perfectly fine vehicle and the lack of a small frunk wouldn't stop me, it's just a little disappointing it doesn't have one when I feel like they could have engineered one in and still had a large boot. 
    • At 2.12 and 0.95 cu.ft for the Audi and Jag's frunk respectfully is a non-issue for the Lyriq not having a frunk. Maximizing the back trunk space as what the GM guys are saying for the Lyriq and the reason why they did it that way by-passing the need for a frunk sounds like marketing BS, until you realize that Audi and Jag's frunk space is nonexistent...   To which GM's words then kinda make sense as the Lyriq does in fact offer more room back there.   Frunk space is kinda expected though, for EVs, so there is that... Tesla Model X for a comparison as Tesla is the benchmark....   https://www.tesla.com/ownersmanual/modelx/en_us/GUID-91E5877F-3CD2-4B3B-B2B8-B5DB4A6C0A05.html     Cargo Volume Table 1. 5-Seater Cargo Volumes Area Volume (liters) Volume (cubic ft) Front trunk 183 6.5 Behind first row, second row folded flat 2,410 85.1 Behind second row 1,050 37.1 Maximum total cargo volume with driver and front passenger 2,593 91.6 Maximum total cargo volume with 5 passengers 1,233 43.5 Table 2. 6-Seater Cargo Volumes Area Volume (liters) Volume (cubic ft) Front trunk 183 6.5 Behind first row, second row in max cargo position, third row folded flat 2,431 85.8 Behind second row, third row folded flat 935 33 Behind third row 425 15 Maximum total cargo volume with driver and front passenger 2,614 92.3 Maximum total cargo volume with 6 passengers 608 21.5 Table 3. 7-Seater Cargo Volumes Area Volume (liters) Volume (cubic ft) Front trunk 183 6.5 Behind first row, second row folded flat 2,314 81.7 Behind second row, third row folded flat 957 33.8 Behind third row 425 15 Maximum total cargo volume with driver and front passenger 2,497 88.2 Maximum total cargo volume with 7 passengers 608 21.5       The Lyriq's cargo space is plentiful and it would seem like an engineering choice to favour rear space over the use of a frunk.  Is it a sound engineering choice? Possibly yes as the powertrain bits need not be crammed.   Is it a sound MARKETING choice? Time will tell as many folk really dont understand engineering choices all to well...   Nor do they seem to care.  If they want a frunk, they WANT a phoquing frunk... 
    • Lyriq Chief Engineer, Jamie Brewer, recently explained to GM Authority that the team decided to prioritize rear cargo space over two separate cargo areas. Thus, the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will have a larger traditional rear storage area. In fact, according to Brewer, that enables the Lyriq to boast the “largest cargo volume in its competitive set.” That made us wonder what, exactly, is the Lyriq’s competitive set. According to Cadillac spokesperson, Katie Minter, it consists of the Audi e-tron and Jaguar I-Pace. “Lyriq is aimed at customers that are looking for a luxury SUV with outstanding styling, ride and handling and seamlessly integrated technology. In this instance, we’re looking at vehicles such as the Audi e-tron and Jaguar I-Pace,” Minter told GM Authority in an emailed statement. So then, Lyriq has a maximum cargo volume of 60.8 cubic feet behind the first row seats and 28.0 cubic feet behind the second row. When compared to the Audi e-tron and the Jaguar I-Pace, the Lyriq does offer more space in the back. 2023 Cadillac Lyriq Cargo vs. e-tron I-Pace   Cadillac Lyriq Audi e-tron Jaguar I-Pace Rear cargo volume behind second row (cu. ft.) 28.0 28.5 25.3 Rear cargo volume behind first row (cu. ft.) 60.8 56.5 51.0 Frunk cargo volume (cu. ft.) N/A 2.12 0.95 Total front & rear cargo volume (cu. ft.)* 28.0 30.62 26.25 * With second row seats upright However, both the e-tron and the I-Pace feature frunks (2.12 cubic feet in the e-tron, 0.95 cubic feet in the I-Pace respectively), allowing the e-tron to have slightly more total cargo volume (combined frunk and rear cargo area). https://gmauthority.com/blog/2021/05/heres-why-the-2023-cadillac-lyriq-doesnt-have-a-frunk/  
    • That's probably a better worded way to put it. It's a missed opportunity.  They're all liquid cooled at this point and I can't imagine Ford and Tesla are having battery cooling issues, at least I haven't heard of any yet and I've watched a fair amount on the Mach-E and know somebody with a pair of Teslas in Nevada.  I don't believe lack of cooling has ever been a factor in an EV catching fire. It's always something shorting and sparking with poor connection(s) somewhere.  I'd also like to learn why. They have to have a good justification, I know they're not a bunch of idiots who "didn't think of it".  I just don't want the press release answer of "we needed the space for packaging". 
    • Hummer EV (and Silverado EV) are much bigger and truckular...so they have a lot more space underneath for the dirty bits.   The Lyriq isn't a high riding 4x4, so it has to use space for the electric motor(s), power brake system, HVAC, radiator, etc under the hood...
