Last Updated On: 24/07/2017

The all-new Range Rover Sport has been designed to capture the distinctive DNA of its predecessor, but with a bold evolution which has placed it firmly at the heart of the marque's striking new three-model portfolio between the Range Rover and the Evoque.

Range Rover Sport occupies a unique position within its segment, and the new model builds on those core strengths with a design which confirms its status as the definitive premium Sports SUV.  With its 'faster' windscreen angle, streamlined profile and sloping roofline, the new Sport is 8 percent more aerodynamic than the previous model and achieves a drag figure of Cd 0.34. The all-new Range Rover Sport is the first vehicle in its segment to feature an advanced all-aluminium body structure, delivering significantly reduced weight.

The new Range Rover Sport has been engineered to deliver dramatically improved on-road driving dynamics, with more connected and agile handling complemented by enhanced ride and refinement. 

Building on Land Rover's legendary history for tackling the toughest climates and road surfaces, the all-new Range Rover Sport has been developed to achieve class-leading all-terrain capability, with supreme composure in all conditions. Ensuring that the vehicle is always driving using the optimum mode, the new system is able to switch completely automatically between the five settings: General, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, Sand and Rock Crawl. The new Range Rover Sport offers a choice of two full-time intelligent 4WD systems, each able to find drive on the most challenging low-grip surfaces.

The all-new Range Rover Sport features an enhanced line-up of powerful petrol and diesel engines, all available with fuel-saving Stop/Start paired with an advanced 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. The 5.0 litre V8 supercharged petrol engine, the most powerful on offer, is capable of a 0-60mph (97km/h) time of under 5 seconds!

Available to order later this year, the Range Rover Sport line-up will be joined by the ultra-efficient diesel Hybrid model, which provides outstanding performance (0-60mph/97kph in sub 7-seconds) with exceptional CO2 emissions of 169g/km to offer customers the first high-performance diesel hybrid within the SUV segment.

The interior of the Sport offers the sort of ambience its big brother, The Range Rover, has long been renowned for. With its superbly appointed interior and elevated driving position, it's designed to cosset and cocoon every passenger who are surrounded by supple leathers and top notch materials. Special attention has been given to providing increased rear seat comfort, offering improved rear legroom (+24mm knee room) and shoulder-room, plus the choice of 60/40 or 40/20/40 split rear seats and the option of powered third row occasional 5+2 'secret' seating (which folds away into the floor) for enhanced versatility.

To maximise personalisation, the new Sport offers even more individual choice for customers to enable them to create their own bespoke vehicle, with an outstanding selection of colour themes and finishes.
