Land Rover has unveiled the third generation of its latest Range Rover Sport – one of its most popular models.
It follows hot on the heels of the new full-size Range Rover that we’ve already driven.
The new Sport gets a similar makeover to the larger Range, with a new headlight and taillight design and a smoother look front and rear.
The overall design isn’t a huge departure from what came before, but that’s no surprise given that the Sport sells twice as many as its larger counterpart.
Something else that is unsurprising is the new Sport’s improved off-road capability that Land Rover is famous for.
The new car features the latest technology from JLR, including an even more advanced system that handles rough terrain for you and all-wheel steering for tighter corners.
A new “Stormer Handling Pack” can be added as an option, making the Sport even more agile on the road, making it the ultimate machine on the go.
One of the features of this package is a clever suspension system that supports the car in tight corners to keep it flatter and in turn helps it take harder corners.
The engines of the Sport are also new this time. At the bottom end there will be a six-cylinder diesel and a petrol engine, both with mild hybrid technology that helps save fuel.
There’s also a plug-in hybrid model that can go 70 miles on electricity alone, and a 530hp twin-turbo V8 performance petrol model that accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds.
Later in 2024 you can also buy an all-electric Range Rover Sport.
Range Rovers are known for their luxurious interiors and this has been boosted for 2022.
There’s a new “better well-being” cabin air filter system, a new 29-speaker sound system that plays music from the headrests, and a new infotainment system.
The latter features a 13.1-inch haptic screen on the dash and has Amazon’s Alexa integrated.
nock Collins, Executive Director Vehicle Programmes, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “Land Rover’s groundbreaking MLA Flex architecture and the latest chassis systems combine to deliver the highest level of dynamism we’ve seen in the Range Rover Sport.
Integrated Chassis Control governs the comprehensive array of innovations, coordinating everything from the latest variable-volume air suspension system to our Dynamic Response Pro electronic active roll control.
The result is the most compelling and exciting Range Rover Sport ever.”
