Some early models with soft close fell under a recall for faulty latches and their installation was halted while the fix was developed. Soft close for "Lard Rover" :lol: operates as you described. Think self latching trunks on pretty much every US luxo boat from the late 50's.Mine is a 2016 (not 15) Autobiography supposedly with every option Lard Rover made. Maybe my idea of soft close doors (like my BMW's) is different than others, but to me soft close doors when the cars shuts the door itself once it reaches a certain point. Your Range Rover does that?
I had a 2014 SC V8, it had soft close doors. Deployable side steps installed after delivery. My 2015 also has deployable steps which were also after delivery so you can do the steps if you wish, I dont think you can do the doors though since they are a factory only option.So the deployment steps and soft close doors aren't available on the 2014 models? Thinking of a 2014 Sport.
with basic, not the deployable running boards https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/detail/679043612/overview/I couldn't find 2014 models with deployment steps or soft close doors. My X5 soft close doors you gently close the door in the latch closet and shut. It's a nice feature so you don't have to slam your doors.
I never knew that the deployment steps are electronic that come out and also available stationary. The ones on my X5 are stationary only. Must not be available in the 2014 models.
