Land Rover LRX Flies Into Melbourne

 

 

8th February, 2008

Land Rover LRX Concept Vehicle

Land Rover will air freight its newest show car - the LRX Concept - into Melbourne this month for the 2008 Melbourne Motor Show.

The LRX Concept has been designed as a desirable, premium and more compact four wheel drive which extends the definition of "breadth of capability".

Only the second concept car in Land Rover's history, it arrives in Australia just weeks after it was displayed at the Detroit Motor Show in USA.

Land Rover has designed the LRX with new technologies, light weight design and a turbo-diesel hybrid powertrain.

As the company enters its 60th year, the three door LRX addresses the needs of a changing world with a car that is very much a Land Rover, but a very different type of Land Rover.

At this stage, LRX is purely a concept, perceived as a premium car in the luxury and executive sector, with the visual presence of a larger vehicle in a compact package.

Its many Land Rover design cues include bold new interpretations of the signature clamshell bonnet, the floating roof and the solid "wheel-at-each-corner" stance.

Land Rover sees the LRX as a vehicle that would be comfortable on Collins Street or Pitt Street, but would not flinch at getting its wheels dirty.

Smaller than a Freelander 2, its lower weight and reduced aerodynamic drag are designed to give significant gains in fuel efficiency and reduced C02 emissions.

It features full time four wheel drive, Hill Descent Control and Land Rover's Terrain Response to optimise traction on difficult surfaces ranging from icy roads to wet grass, gravel and snow.

The interior of the LRX is designed to be roomy, practical and versatile, trimmed in soft leathers in rich tan and dark chocolate complemented by polished aluminium details.

Melbourne Motor Show is organised and promoted by the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce through its dealer division the Australian Automobile Dealers Association (Victoria).
