Range Rover Sport gains new engines and special edition models
Range Rover has given its Sport model an efficient new twist with the introduction of cleaner - but no less powerful - engines.
The Sport, which remains the most dynamic car in the current Range Rover line-up, now uses cleaner in-line six-cylinder diesel and petrol engines which incorporate 48-volt mild-hybrid technology for significant efficiency gains over the older generation of powertrains.
These engines meet the very latest emissions regulations, but are still hugely powerful. The new D350 diesel, for instance, can power the Sport from 0-60mph in under seven seconds yet emit as low as 237g/km CO2 - significantly less than the outgoing V8 diesel.
The Sport has also been given a tech update through the inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which allows for easier integration between a drivers’ smartphone and the car’s touchscreen. In addition, an embedded Spotify App has been installed into the infotainment system, giving Premium holders access to their music without having to connect their phone.
A new HSE Dynamic Pack has been added to the Sport’s list of specifications too, bringing a full black exterior styling pack and 22-inch gloss black on the D300 - though the plug-in hybrid P400e sits on smaller 21-inch alloys instead.
This sits alongside SVR Carbon Edition - which is available on the range-topping V8 model - which adds a series of carbon fibre elements across the car, privacy glass and 21-inch wheels.
