The new Range Rover Sport has arrived

After the fifth generation of the Range Rover last year, here is the Range Rover Sport, the third of the name. We allow you to give your first impression in front of these lines, which honors the letter stimulus: Range Rover… Sport. Or the Velar rugby pillar version. With good optics on all four corners, grille of acceptable size (hello BMW) and minimal surface treatment. Range Rover has been Apple’s SUV recently.

Enough for the tool, let’s get the contents. The new Range Sport is 7 cm taller than its predecessor, i.e. 4.95 m (compared to 5.05 m of short Range, or even 5.25 m of its longer version). It is also higher than ever. This new rating benefits the stay.

2.7 t of the animal is based on air suspension and controlled contaminants. Rear-wheel drive is seen as an option in the Stormer Handle pack, coupled with an electronically controlled variant with a torque setting function via brakes. The new Range Rover Sport also offers a 48 V anti-roll, which has been essential for luxury SUVs to continue to defy the laws of physics. The cruise control now has off-road function. Sport, but Range Rover above all.

On the other hand, the ephemeral version of the seven seats disappears. The only Range available with the third row of seats is therefore the Range Rover LWB. Also you will always have Discovery and Defender in the Land Rover range.

Under the hood, there will be two 6-cylinder diesel engines of 250 and 350 hp, two rechargeable versions of the 440 and 510 (plus 6 and 4 more cylinders per fuel section, still more chic). The two engines ply 113 km of power, at 0 to 100 km / h at 5.8 and 5.4 s respectively (but not both at the same time).

At the top of the range, is a V8 biturbo 4.4 of 530 hp (up to 100 km / h at 4.3 s). The latter is as natural for BMW as in the column itself: say goodbye to the tasty V8 5.0 with a compact housing. While waiting for the inevitable SVR, but also the 100% electronic version, as in Range.

The cockpit, next to a large 13.1-inch tablet mounted on the center cone, has a driver’s orientation more than on the Range. The driver said he had a 13.7-inch digital device under his eyes, with a cone covering most of his right arm. As we are in 2022, it is of course possible to choose vegetable leather upholstery. However, it will have to pay extra for it. According to the first comment received immediately, the results are convincing.

What else? Instead of 23 inches on the Arc, the Range Sport is satisfied with the standard rims of only 22 inches high. It can be adjusted by 135 mm, ground clearance reaches 281 mm, with a crossing height of 900 mm. LED lights illuminate for half a mile, the rear lights have the world’s “LED surface technology” with the most sophisticated signature of light from all angles. The Meridian hi-fi provides up to 29 speakers (TWENTY-NINE), while the standard noise reduction system is integrated into the headphone jacks to compensate for road noise.

“Land Rover’s MLA Architectural design and the latest chassis systems are blended to deliver the highest levels of flexibility ever seen on the Range Rover Sport line,” said Nick Collins, Jaguar Vehicle Program Director. Landrover said. The Integrated Chassis Control System controls a complete innovative design, coordinating everything from the latest flexible voice suspension system to Dynamic Response Pro, our active electronic control.
