Range Rover Sport’s status as the luxury performance SUV has been strengthened with a range of enhancements for 2017 model year. The latest model features the most efficient powertrain yet, the introduction of innovative new autonomous driving technologies and greater scope for bespoke personalisation.
Introduced in 2013, Range Rover Sport is a genuine Land Rover success story, delivering all the refinement and capability expected from a large SUV with the performance normally associated with a sports car. The dynamic large SUV status as the ultimate high performance SUV is underpinned by the potent 550PS Range Rover Sport SVR, which can accelerate from 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds.
One of the most significant additions to the 2017 model year Range Rover Sport comes under the bonnet, with the introduction of Jaguar Land Rover’s advanced 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine. The state-of-the-art British built engine provides enhanced fuel efficiency with emissions as low as 164g/km* and capable of a combined fuel economy of 45.6mpg, while still delivering performance in line with the outgoing 3.0-litre TDV6. The new Ingenium engine is also lighter, providing improved responses, enhanced agility and superior dynamics.
Peerless all-terrain capability remains a cornerstone of the Range Rover family and the 2017 model year Range Rover Sport includes a selection of new features. Low Traction Launch makes it easier for drivers to pull away on low-grip surfaces while the updated 4x4i menu presents all the necessary vehicle information when tackling challenging terrain.
The enlarged dual-view touchscreen features a new 10-inch display for greater ease-of-use and clarity and features tablet-style pinch and zoom functions. This is powered by Land Rover’s market-leading InControl Touch Pro technology, making this the most connected Range Rover Sport to date.
