Sitting proudly alongside the new Range Rover and Range Rover Evoque is the all-new Range Rover Sport.
The new vehicle is one of the industry’s ultimate sports SUV and a perfect representation of Land Rover’s world-leading contemporary design and engineering capabilities.
The initial line-up comprises four equipment grades: SE, HSE, HSE Dynamic and Autobiography Dynamic and there’s a choice of three engines: TDV6 with 258hp, SDV6 with 292hp and the 510hp supercharged 5.0-litre V8 petrol.
The all-new Range Rover Sport is the firm’s most technology-packed vehicle to date including several brand new innovative features such as the new Wade Sensing feature which monitors the depth of water as the car goes through it;, and a parking assist feature.
The Range Rover Sport also has an impressive audio system with one option coming with 23 speakers for the ultimate in surround sound!
Standard features across the range include automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, two-zone climate control, heated front seats, DAB audio system, ‘Say-What-You-See’ voice control, power tailgate, HD navigation and Land Rover’s Terrain Response all-terrain driving system.
In the SE, the standard spec also includes leather upholstery, intelligent stop-start, heated front seats, auto-dimming rear-view mirror and four-corner air suspension with automatic levelling.
Go up a spec level and you’ll get 20-inch alloy wheels, Oxford perforated leather seats featuring 14-way electric front seat adjustment with memory function, heated rear seats, front fog lights, paddle shift controls, heated windscreen, rear view camera and aluminium Range Rover treadplates.
The next level of Range Rover Sport, the HSE, gets even better with extra styling and handling features, including stainless steel pedals, a gloss black grille and vents, 21-inch alloys, illuminated treadplates, twin speed transfer box, torque vectoring and the added functionality of Terrain Response 2 Auto.
Engineers have worked to make the vehicle lighter and they’ve used aluminium architecture to help save 420kg in weight.
This means the Range Rover Sport’s handling has changed, both on-road and off-road and can be tightened even further with the firm’s new Torque Vectoring control package.
Available to order now, the all-new Range Rover Sport is priced from £51,500 with deliveries expected in the autumn.
To help soften the blow to the wallet, it might be wise to check out the potential leasing packages which will be available for the Range Rover Sport.
