RANGE ROVER SPORT
Settle back into the driver's seat of Range Rover Sport and one thing is immediately apparent: it demands to be driven.
Range Rover Sport has been designed and engineered to new heights. Beautifully proportioned, its muscular presence, sleek lines and sculpted corners help shape a vehicle that demands to be noticed.
Range Rover Sport is engineered to be the most agile, dynamic and responsive Land Rover yet. Its distinctive and dramatic presence embodies the vehicle's energy and modernity. Its all-aluminium body not only reduces weight but also increases agility and helps improve safety.
The cockpit and control layout has been angled and simplified to deliver a distraction-free, intuitive drive. The sports Command Driving Position enhances this by giving you an assured view of the road ahead together with a greater sense of confidence and control.
A CONTEMPORARY INTERIOR
Range Rover Sport's interior has been designed and meticulously fashioned to reflect its sporting character. Strong lines, clean surfaces and judicious detailing are complemented by soft touch finishes and the finest materials. This space is both comfortable and purposeful.
Agile, dynamic and extraordinarily capable, Range Rover Sport has a choice of powerful engines that can deliver a top speed of up to 225km/h. Its effortless handling and unrivalled all-terrain performance ensure this is a vehicle that rises to the challenge of every journey, on or off-road.
This system delivers the perfect balance of ride and control by offering continuously variable damper settings. Monitoring vehicle movements up to 500 times a second, it responds to your inputs and the road conditions to ensure a comfortable, composed drive.
This system enhances the vehicle's agility and stability when cornering. It constantly monitors and balances the distribution of torque between all wheels to improve grip and steering whether on or off-road. It can also help the vehicle turn in and reduce understeer.
When selected with Terrain Response 2, Dynamic Mode tunes the suspension to deliver even tighter body control with flatter handling and sharper responses, resulting in a sportier drive on the road.
The latest two-channel system is featured; this can control the front and rear axles independently allowing it to be tuned to deliver increased low-speed agility and enhanced stability at high speeds.
HILL DESCENT CONTROL
Land Rover's patented Hill Descent Control (HDC) assists the driver with controlled descents of difficult slopes by maintaining a constant speed and applying braking separately to each wheel. The system works automatically to slow the vehicle and maintain the desired speed. Hill Start Assist (HSA) ensures you don't roll backwards as you pull away on an incline.
Feel composed crossing a stream, a ford or negotiating floodwater. Wade Sensing measures the water depth using sensors on the underside of the door mirrors and provides real-time information in relation to the vehicle. This data and the maximum wading capability are relayed via the Touchscreen, providing you with the correct knowledge to drive appropriately.
TESTED TO EXTREMES
In testing, each model has been exposed to the equivalent of ten years' extreme driving time on our punishing test rig.
180km/h crosswinds. High ambient temperatures. Low airflow situations. These and other challenging air movements are recreated in our climate chambers to push every model and its systems to the limit.
HOT AND COLD CLIMATE
Vehicles are frozen to -40°c and baked to 50°c in both real world environments and climate chambers. So no matter where in the world you go, comfort and connection are always there.
Land Rover's legendary off-road capabilities are inherent in every vehicle. Tested in environments as remote as the ice fields of Arjeplog, Sweden and the unforgiving sands of Dubai, prototypes cover some 8,500km.
MERIDIAN™ REFERENCE SOUND SYSTEM
The optional 1700 Watt Meridian™ Reference Sound System has 22 speakers plus a subwoofer, 22 channels and incorporates Trifield* 3D technology. This expands the sense of space within the cabin and provides a realistic 3D listening experience in every seat. Bright trebles and rich bass notes ensure the ultimate listening experience.
Conversation Assist is included with the optional 1700W Meridian™ Reference Sound System. This feature amplifies normal conversation through the speakers within the vehicle to allow everyone to be heard.
*Trifield and the “three fields” device is a trademark of Trifield Productions Ltd.
Whatever the weather outside, the temperature can always be perfect inside. The vehicle's climate control system features class-leading technology and is the result of incredibly rigorous testing in conditions ranging from -40°c to 50°c. There is a choice of options available: from the standard two-zone to a four-zone system with separate climate controls for driver, front passenger and each side of the rear cabin.
CONFIGURABLE MOOD LIGHTING
Configurable Mood Lighting helps establish your preferred ambience. With a choice of ten colours ranging from Ice White to Racing Red, you can set the right tone and adjust the brightness accordingly. Carefully detailed LED lights complement the interior's clean lines and premium materials. Available as an optional feature.
Range Rover Sport's all-aluminium monocoque bodyshell and optional hybrid engine deliver greater efficiency, lower emissions and even better vehicle dynamics.
A range of technology enhances the drive, including Dynamic Response for improved vehicle handling, Adaptive Dynamics, balancing ride and control and Torque Vectoring, for responsive, controlled cornering.
Tackle the most demanding environments with a range of features from Terrain Response 2 that adapts vehicle responses to the driving conditions, to Low Traction Launch, enabling you to pull away smoothly on low-friction surfaces.
With Blind Spot Monitoring to warn of approaching vehicles, Park Assist technologies, and Advanced Tow Assist that facilitates reversing with a trailer, driver aids make your journey easier and safer.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
Enjoy added convenience with powered gesture tailgate, which allows you to effortlessly open or close the tailgate, and automatic access height to enable easier access in and out of vehicle.
InControl Touch Pro features navigation and can be accessed via a 10” Touchscreen, it can be enhanced by adding options such as InControl Connect Pro connectivity package and Meridian™ Sound Systems for a concert-like experience.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
AUTOMATIC ACCESS HEIGHT
This feature lowers the vehicle by up to 50mm for easier entry and exit when parked. Only available with electronic air suspension, it ensures you arrive and leave any function in the most relaxed and hassle-free manner possible.
SOFT DOOR CLOSE
The soft door close option comes with power latchings on each door. As you shut the door, these allow the last 6mm of travel to be controlled so there's minimal noise. Effortlessly smooth, this feature makes getting in and out of the vehicle that touch more refined.
