Official SVO Design Pack for Range Rover



This popped up in the 2017 Range Rover Brochures, I’m not sure if it’s new or not.  I can’t find a lot on it prior to this.  A web search finds the info about it removed from the Land Rover USA site but there is still a cached copy of the page here(UPDATE 8/28/16, looks like they pulled the cache too):

SVO design packs provide a purposeful, dynamic and stunning styling enhancement that allow customers to add their own stamp of individuality by tailoring their Range Rover. Exterior features include a unique front bumper, rear bumper with integrated tailpipes, side vents, grille and side sill claddings. For SWB only. Not applicable for vehicles equipped with deployable side steps or towing.

Off-road capabilities will be impacted due to amended approach and departure angles. Contact your Land Rover Retailer for more information.

Reference #: SVO1

The associated image was created back in February 2016, so I don’t know if this was ever public or not, probably appearing soon with the 2017 announcement.

Purposeful, dynamic and stunningly realized lines are created with the addition of our Design Pack. The unique front bumper gives the vehicle even more presence. If you want your vehicle to make a greater statement, this does so with flair. Please note: off-road capabilities will be impacted due to
amended approach and departure angles.

Side vents, grille and side sill claddings add to it’s already unmistakable silhouette.

The Range Rover Evoque Social Seat?? #rangerover

A classic Range Rover design cue, the rear two-part tailgate was thrown out the window when they released the Range Rover Sport back in 2006, and that design continues with the new Range Rover Evoque.  Various Evoque literature has mentioned a “Social Seat", described as such:

Versatile luggage stowage systems are made possible with the addition of loadspace stowage rails. A strap with an Inertia locking reel, which works in a similar way to a seat belt, is one feature which prevents movement of items in the luggage area. The rails can also support a ‘Social Seat’.

For years, Range Rover owners have sat on the edge of their tailgate to socialise at outdoor events. Land Rover has taken note and customers can now fold out a seat which acts like an open lower tailgate, providing comfortable seating for two . Coupled with the powered tailgate, the ‘Social Seat’ offers additional flexibility and convenience.

So I had asked around about this but as normal, no one answered back, so I had no real info until this video was released:

And here is a link to the video, cued up to 1:08 – it’s quick but you’ll see it.




One last interesting point, this feature is nothing new, I saw this at either the New York or Detroit Autoshow back in 2005 on the Range Rover Sport, they call it a Sliding Loadspace Floor.  I’m the one making the jump and calling it the Social Seat, I could be completely wrong here and we still may not have actually seen the Social Seat.

Here it is on the Range Rover Sport:

The Geneva show has really given them a push to get more information out there.  Here we see the latest release of pictures highlighting the available exterior accessories.  I really like the 4-door in red.
