    “These excellent Euro NCAP results are a direct result of the hard work and expertise that goes into designing, engineering, and manufacturing vehicles that have combined safety, capability, and luxury for more than five decades. Our strong, mixed metal MLA-Flex body architecture provides solid foundations for a suite of cutting-edge active safety systems such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) that combined, work in harmony to protect occupants and other road users. These Range Rovers are a technological triumph,” said Jaguar Land Rover Executive Director for Product Engineering Thomas Mueller.

    Alongside the active safety systems, the New Range Rover and Range Rover Sport makes use of technologies that aim to improve driver alertness and reduce the potential for distraction. Integrated Amazon Alexa, Land Rover explained, provides the ability to control various settings and features using natural and intuitive voice commands, without the need to take hands off the wheel or eyes off the road.

    Both vehicles are also available with Cabin Air Purification Pro, a pioneering system that takes interior air quality to the next level. Not only does the PM2.5 filtration and Nanoe-X technology help to significantly reduce odors, bacteria, and allergens, but it also enhances wellness and alertness by monitoring carbon dioxide (CO2) levels inside and automatically introducing fresh external air when required. High concentrations of CO2 contribute to drowsiness, so the system proactively contributes to optimum driver alertness.
