Actual images of the Clear Exit Detection display in the 2018 Range Rover

Clear Exit Detection

Described and displayed as such in the original release:

my2018-l494-passenger-alert

Clear Exit Detection will alert passengers of approaching traffic or other dangers before they open their doors

It wasn’t clear where this would be or what it would look like in the actual vehicle.  But the latest SVAutobiography LWB image at the top of the post makes it a lot clearer.

A very verbose, slightly bombastic description of the 2018 Range Rover & Range Rover Sport Animated Turn Signals…

Someone put a lot of thought into describing the new animated functionality of the turn signals in the owner’s manual for the updated 2018 Range Rover & Range Rover Sport.  This is kind of a repost but the wording was so thorough I couldn’t resist.

TURN SIGNALS
The animated turn signal feature is in place to improve the turn signal function by a sequential activation of their light sources. This is achieved by switching on consecutive segments of lights from inboard to outboard and during a defined period of time, creating a sweeping effect. Only lights with LED are able to reproduce any dynamic effect.

A comprehensive range of powertrain options includes an advanced new plug-in hybrid electric-petrol, with an EV range of up to 31 miles (51km), and an uprated 565PS V8 supercharged petrol engine.

Executive Class rear seats are central to the appeal of the luxurious new model. Combined with the long-wheelbase body, they offer rear legroom of over 1.2m while deep seat foams with new comfort interlayers deliver enhanced passenger wellbeing. With a powered 40-degree recline capability, hot stone massage function, heated calf and foot rests, and 22-way adjustment, the rear cabin promises a peerless passenger experience.

A dramatic fixed centre console extends the full length of the cabin and the new model also allows passengers to close the rear doors using conveniently located buttons on the rear console.

Electrically deployable rear tables and integrated rear entertainment screens ensure customers can use the 4G WiFi connectivity to work or relax in comfort, while a concealed refrigerator between the twin rear seats can hold two wine bottles or four 600ml bottles. The right-hand rear seat folds to accommodate long items and customers can also specify a Power Deployable Veneered Loadspace Floor for the first time, making loading and unloading luggage easier than ever.

With convenience features providing a first class customer experience, the attention to detail delivers new levels of sophistication. An exclusive new Zenith clock features on the rear centre console, inspired by the Elite 6150 watch. Its knurled bezel complements the finish on the start/stop button, gear shifter and pedals.
