ONE BRAND - THREE FAMILIES
There are three families of vehicles under the Land Rover brand umbrella – Range Rover, Discovery, and Defender – each with its own defining characteristics, personality and positioning; sharing design leadership and a sense of engineering integrity which Land Rover products are best known for.
The Range Rover Family was first introduced to the US market in 1987. The Range Rover brand is distinguished by its sense of refinement and outright luxury. Range Rover products are equally at home driving in the countryside as they are chauffeuring passengers to the opera.
The Discovery Family bridges the gap between utility and refinement, for absolute versatility. With variable five- and seven-passenger seating options available in both the compact Discovery Sport and full-size Discovery, this family of vehicles utilizes the latest connectivity technologies, innovative storage solutions and on-/off-road capability to shuttle owners and their passengers to and from their commitments in the utmost comfort.
The Defender Family is the workhorse of the brand. Exported to more than 170 nations worldwide, the Defender made a name for itself in developing countries, on farms and in militaries around the globe as a durable, utilitarian vehicle that could reliably transport its passengers to all four corners of the globe no matter the terrain. The Defender was last exported to the US market in the 1997MY and concluded global production in January of 2016 following almost 70 years of ongoing series Land Rover production.
APPLE CARPLAY® AND ANDROID AUTO™
From the 2019 model year forward, all vehicles equipped with the Land Rover InControl Touch Pro™ or Touch Pro Duo™ infotainment systems with navigation, InControl® Apps™, and Wi-Fi connectivity will be available with an optional Smartphone Pack that includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™4,9. The Smartphone Pack will be offered either as optional or standard equipment, depending on the model and trim level1. The Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery feature the Smartphone Pack as standard equipment.
Drivers are now able to interact with key mobile apps, such as Spotify, WhatsApp and, with the release of iOS12, Waze through the vehicle’s touchscreen, in a manner similar to a smartphone. Where equipped, certain functionality can even be controlled via the vehicle’s Voice Control, providing additional convenience. Owners will simply connect their smartphone to the vehicle via a compatible USB cable and select Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ on the vehicle’s touchscreen.
Visit Apple.com and Android.com for the current list of devices and apps which share system compatibility.
