It seems that the 2013 Range Rover is already receiving high praise from some of the automotive industry’s most prestigious critics. The new Range has recently been named Luxury Car of the Year by Top Gear Magazine.
Top Gear lauded the flagship Range Rover, naming it the “stand out machine in its category” summarizing the vehicle as simply, “the best of the best.” The magazine commends Land Rover for developing a superior luxury vehicle that is just as comfortable mixing it up on the trail as it is driving back and forth to work. To be fair, the Range Rover was always considered an engineering marvel, but it seems that the latest efforts by the iconic automaker have taken something great, and made it even better.
Much has been made of the 2013 Range Rover’s new aluminum frame and lightened chassis, but this cannot be understated. The reduction in weight has made the new Rover more fuel efficient and reduced its carbon footprint. Even the leather found in the vehicle’s interior boasts a 46 percent reduction in carbon footprint. While the typical Range Rover customer may not be concerned with such figures, the conscientious effort to make the Rover more green will certainly go a long way to adjust the company’s public perception as an inefficient gas-guzzler.
Range Rover seems to have accomplished the impossible. Improving on a vehicle that had very little wrong with it in the first place. By making the vehicle more carbon friendly while enhancing performance and maintaining its high standard of luxury, the Range Rover has found itself named the Luxury Car of the Year, and deservedly so.
