New engine and driver tech upgrade for Range Rover Sport

  • New 249PS 3.0-litre SDV6 diesel powertrain joins #rangeroversport line-up for Europe
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with High-speed Emergency Braking enhances safety
  • Range Rover Sport delivers dynamic performance and unrivalled capability, priced from £64,084

Range Rover Sport has always combined the refinement and capability of a large #SUV with the performance of a sports car. With this latest update, designed to enhance the driving experience and customer convenience, the #rangeroversport continues to be the benchmark luxurious performance #SUV.

The new 249PS 3.0-litre SDV6 twin-turbo engine replaces the 2.0-litre SD4 in European markets, delivering an additional 9PS and an extra 100Nm of torque. This translates into improved acceleration and a 0-60mph sprint of 7.6 seconds (0-100km/h in 7.9 seconds), 0.8 seconds faster than the 2.0 model, while meeting the latest EU emissions standards.

Customers have the option of the diesel engine alongside the efficient P400e plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) powertrain launched last year with a 51km all-electric range.

 

Owners in China now have access to Predictive Energy Optimisation (PEO), not previously available in this market. It uses route data from the navigation system to plan the most energy efficient route.

The latest enhancements to the #rangeroversport build on its credentials as the luxury performance #SUV. With a more efficient powertrain line-up, improved safety technology and state-of-the-art lighting features, this is a vehicle that demands to be driven.
