This top-shelf SUV has been given a major makeover with good looks inside and out paired with plenty of hi-tech and luxury features.
There’s a version of the new Range Rover Sport to suit everyone.
The luxury British brand has detailed its all new premium SUV with a wide variety of power options to appeal to all buyers.
There is a big focus on electrified models, all three of the diesel engines have 48-volt mild hybrid tech as do two of the petrol options. The brand is also bringing a plug-in hybrid version offering long-range electric-only driving.
The brand has confirmed an all-electric version will join the line-up in 2024.
Range Rover hasn’t completely forgotten the petrolheads with the maker also fitting the new Range Rover Sport with a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine.
A 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo diesel unit with mild hybrid technology is available in three different levels of tune; 183kW/600Nm, 221kW/650Nm and 258kW/700Nm.
The plug-in hybrid version combines a six-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor and a big 38.2kWh battery. This results in a combined output of 375kW and 700Nm.
Impressively, Range Rover claims the petrol-electric model can be driven up to 125km on pure electric power, which is far superior to most plug-ins on sale today.
It’ll bring impressive performance, completing the 0-100km/h sprint in 5.4 seconds on the way to a top speed of 242km/h. In electric mode the car is limited to 140km/h.
The big burly 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 makes a mighty 390kW and 750Nm. This is good enough to thrust the SUV to 100km/h from a standstill in 4.5 seconds.
These are joined by two six-cylinder petrol engines with mild-hybrid tech making either 265kW/500Nm or 294kW/550Nm.
All models are matched to an eight-speed auto and all-wheel drive.
Range Rover will slowly roll out the model range with only the diesel and plug-in hybrid versions available to order now with deliveries commencing at a later date.
The six-cylinder and V8 petrol variants will be available late 2022 and into 2023.
Prices for the diesel range will start at $139,160 (before on-road costs) and rise to $196,359 for the limited-run First Edition. The plug-in hybrid variant is priced from $198,097.
The brand has given the Range Rover Sport a major makeover inside and out with new muscular styling complimenting the vehicles go-anywhere ability.
The new Range Rover Sport boasts several standout features including an air purification system that can filter out pollutants, bacteria and even viruses.
It has worked with Meridian to fit a 29-speaker, 1430-watt surround sound stereo.
A 13.1-inch central display provides haptic feedback and voice commands via Amazon Alexa can control various settings and features. Over-the-air software updates add further convenience.
The Range Rover Sport has gone through intense off-road and endurance testing to make sure it can tackle even the hardest off-road situations.
All models get dynamic air suspension that can read the road ahead to pre-empt bends and apply the correct suspension firmness.
Range Rover also claims the on-road performance has been boosted with the vehicle exerting impressive body control and cornering ability.
