You need no more than a one hand’s fingers to count vehicles which can match the on-road performance and luxury of the Range Rover. However, even fewer models are able to follow the full-size Rover when they leave the pavement. The Ranger Rover is really the benchmark for the full-size SUVs when it comes to the luxury and performance but the SV Autobiography Dynamic version certainly raises the things to even higher level. With the supercharged V-8 engine and specially tuned suspension the 2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic combines the rich interior and latest tech features for the experience that is hard to match.
2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic: Design
Like other Range Rovers the 2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic features sleek and elegant appearance which distinguish British models from the rest. Upright and sleek panels don’t make this model look boxy yet clean and straight lines combined with brand’s signature elements forms elegant and attractive picture. However, the SV Autobiography Dynamic trim also adds unique trim accents and components which further improve the visual identity of this model.
The SV Autobiography Dynamic stands out with the attractive 21-inch alloy wheels which also have an alternative in 22-inch alloys with the low-profile tires. This version also sits 0.3 inches lower to the ground than the regular version and adds contrasting exterior finishes. The model also features unique finishes on the hood, side vents and grille. Uniquely accentuated bumpers and badges also make the difference.
The cabin and Features:
Inside the cabin the Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic impresses with the rich textures and loads of tech features. The diamond quilted leather upholstery with contrasting stitching looks very rich and black veneer on the dash and door panels also fit nice to the interior design. Details like the unique finish of the metal surfaces also add nice contrasting tone to the interior.
The SV Autobiography Dynamic also includes 20-way power and heated front seats, the latest In Control Touch Pro infotainment system, an impressive 1,700 W Meriden sound system with 29 speakers, etc. The safety comes with the lane departure warning, blind spot monitors, parking assist and adaptive cruise control.
2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic: Powertrain
Under the hood, the 2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic will hide a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine. Brand’s Special Vehicle Operations division tuned this engine to produce an impressive 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque making this version the most powerful Range Rover ever. On the other hand, this performance model is not an exception and it comes with the 8-speed autobox and standard full-time all-wheel drive. The Terrain Response system is also there to adjust different settings according to the road conditions offering also the manual dial between the modes.
The model also features lower ride height and specially calibrated anti-roll bar, dampers and springs combined also with the retuned steering response. All that combined with the quick acceleration will provide a great driving experience.
When we translate the capability of this hardware to the numbers we will get pretty impressive scores for the 5,400-plus vehicle with the 60 mph reachable in just 5.1 seconds. On the other hand, top speed is limited to 155 mph. As for the fuel economy, something around 16 mpg is what we should expect.

Of course, all the capability and luxury the 2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic offers won’t come for free. This impressive model will cost around $171,000.
