Sport­ing change

The Weekend Post - Motoring - - Front Page -

“Com­bine th­ese en­hance­ments with the con­tem­po­rary style and lux­ury of the re­vised in­te­rior and it’s clear the Range Rover Sport re­mains the only choice as the quin­tes­sen­tial SUV sports tourer.”

A com­pre­hen­sive pro­gram of chas­sis sys­tem mod­i­fi­ca­tions has trans­formed the Range Rover Sport’s on-road dy­nam­ics, while also de­liv­er­ing a sub­stan­tial im­prove­ment in its all­ter­rain ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

The in­tro­duc­tion of new sys­tems such as Adap­tive Dy­nam­ics and the ad­di­tion of the road-fo­cused Dy­namic pro­gram to the Ter­rain Re­sponse sys­tem help en­hance agility and ride qual­ity. Fur­ther im­prove­ments to the Ter­rain Re­sponse sys­tem en­sure that off-road ca­pa­bil­ity is kept at the ex­pected class-lead­ing level.

“The Range Rover Sport has gen­er­ated a pas­sion­ate fol­low­ing among cus­tomers who re­quire the per­for­mance and re­fine­ment of a true sports tourer, but who value the for­mi­da­ble off-road abil­ity of a Land Rover,” he said.

“Now that we have widened its range of ca­pa­bil­i­ties even fur­ther, the fol­low­ing for the Range Rover Sport looks set to grow stronger.”

The Range Rover Sport is packed with fea­tures aimed at re­duc­ing fuel con­sump­tion and re­duc­ing CO2 emis­sions. Both the new 3.0 litre twin turbo diesel and di­rect in­jec­tion petrol en­gines were de­signed from the out­set to de­liver class-lead­ing fuel econ­omy and im­proved low-end torque.

“The new petrol V8 en­gine is ideally suited to the sport­ing char­ac­ter of the Range Rover Sport, pro­vid­ing gen­er­ous low-end torque and spir­ited per­for­mance,” he said.

“What’s more sig­nif­i­cant though, is that it is also in­cred­i­bly clean, achiev­ing im­pres­sive re­duc­tions in fuel con­sump­tion and CO2 emis­sions in real world con­di­tions.”

The new 10MY Range Rover Sport will go on sale in Aus­tralian late in the year with pric­ing, spec­i­fi­ca­tion and model line up, still to be con­firmed.
