23 Oct 2017 - 1:03
The new Range Rover Sport is transformed by technology, delivering efficiency, capability and performance like never before. The new Range Rover Sport will be making its motor show debut and appearing for the first time in the Middle East.
Every Range Rover Sport has an enhanced design and features new consumer technology. The flagship Range Rover SVR now delivers 575PS, making it the fastest Range Rover to date. This is an SUV driven to another level of dynamic capability, with breadth of appeal and desirability like no other. The British-designed, engineered and built Range Rover Sport has sold more than 732,000 since it was introduced in 2004. Its unrivalled mix of refinement and exhilarating performance has starred on TV and in movies around the world.
“When we started the design process with this new Range Rover Sport, it was important that we maintained its sporting prowess while evolving the exterior design. The addition of design-enabled technologies, such as our new infotainment system and the LED headlights demonstrate our drive towards ever greater desirability for the customer,” said Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer, Land Rover.
In 2018, the exterior has evolved to harmonise and modernise the design, making the Range Rover Sport look more dynamic without changing its character.
At the front, the striking new design is enabled by intelligent Pixel-laser LED headlights, sitting alongside a redesigned grille. This is complemented by a new bumper with a more aggressive profile. Inside the cabin the new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, called ‘Blade’ by its developers, is the most advanced ever created by Jaguar Land Rover and is truly state-of-the-art. Two high-definition 10-inch touchscreens form the centrepiece of the minimalist cabin, blending a futuristic, elegant feel with an intuitive, engaging interface and unrivalled functionality.
In-car connectivity is enhanced with up to 14 power points, including a domestic plug socket to keep laptops and other devices topped up. The introduction of the Jaguar Land Rover Activity Key also brings new levels of convenience to the Range Rover Sport, allowing customers to lock and unlock their vehicle without the need to carry a key fob – ideal for outdoor pursuits.
The new Range Rover Sport has been enhanced with further technologies for greater comfort and convenience. The Gesture sunblind can be opened and closed by an advanced gesture control system that senses an occupant’s hand movement. All it takes to open the blind is a rearward swipe in front of the rear view mirror, and forwards to close.
The Advanced Tow Assist takes care of the difficult counter-steering required to position trailers accurately when reversing.
The car accelerates 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds, while bold design revisions and the increased use of carbon fibre construction make the new Range Rover Sport SVR more dramatic, faster and more agile than before.
Designed and engineered by Jaguar Land Rover in the UK, the new Range Rover Sport will be produced at the company’s Solihull production facility and is available to order now with first deliveries from early 2018
