Land Rover Range Rover Sport Review

Synopsis

‘Bond with the best’ is the message which Land Rover wants to convey to the world. That is why they roped in the Bond actor, Daniel Craig at the launch of their new Range Rover Sport at the New York Motor show. The company claims it to be the fastest SUV ever produced. Let’s get into the detailing of this new SUV.

Exterior

The car certainly looks more stylish than ever. This new age RR Sport borrows the styling cues from the baby Evoque and recently launched new Range Rover. The new angular headlights, LED fog lights and front bumper are very similar to the original Range Rover while its low positioned windscreen and front grille resembles to Evoque. The new RR Sport looks more proportionate than before thanks to the new frame which also gives it a compact look with less rear overhang. The muscular wheel arches and stylish alloy wheels complement the designing of this car and look attractive with the side steps. The black colored roof, A and D pillar gives it a sporty look and makes it look much like the elder Range Rover when seen from sideways. This car is longer than the outgoing model but it’s still shorter than the original RR. The redesigned tail section features new compact rear glass and rear spoiler which looks stunning with its Swept LED tail lights. The visually bulky rear bumper adds macho character to this car and gels well with the boot gate.

Interior

The sophisticated and luxurious interiors of Range Rover make their way to this car. The car uses high quality of plastic and leather inside in dual tone colors which add premium touch to this car. The wheelbase of the new RR Sport in longer than the previous model which makes it quite spacious inside. The SUV gets three row seating for the first time and comes with a seating option of 5+2. There is huge amount of knee and shoulder room in this car which is quite helpful on long journeys.

Comfort and Convenience

The company will offer this car with all modern features which gives you maximum comfort. The car will have electrically adjustable seats, foldable and adjustable outside mirrors, power windows, automatic lights, wipers and 4-zone climate control. Individual arm-rests, front centre console cooler compartment, cruise control and adjustable power steering are some of the other essential features in this car.

Dashboard and Storage

The Dual tone dashboard comes with premium quality of leather and plastic. It’s quite soft to touch and looks royal inside. The slight usage of chrome further enhances the aura inside. The combined analogue-digital instrument console with blue back-lit looks explicit just behind the steering. The door pockets, air-cooled glove box, bottle and cup holder gives you enough space inside. The boot space further increases by folding down its third row which results into the flat floor board.

Music System

The new RR Sport will feature separate touch screens for the rear passengers while its will also have an integrated touch screen double din music system in its central console. There are in –built speakers and sub-woofers in this SUV which gives you great surrounding sound inside. The car comes with navigation system and Bluetooth connectivity with audio and Bluetooth controls mounted on its three spoke steering wheel.

Engine and Gearbox

RR Sport will debut with two engine options; one each of petrol and diesel. The petrol unit is a supercharged 5.0L V8 engine which will produce a maximum power output of 503bhp while the 3.0L SDV6 diesel motor will churn out a power of 288bhp. Next year, the company is expected to add two more diesel engines to the Sport line up; a 254bhp TDV6 and a 4.4L SDV8 super diesel engine which will generate a maximum power output of 334bhp. These all engines will come with permanent 4wheel drive system and will be powered by an eight speed automatic transmission.

Acceleration and Performance

The SDV8 diesel engine will make it the fastest SUV in its segment. It’s expected to hit 100km/hr from standstill in less than 7 seconds. The heavy torque and ample amount of power will make this car an enthusiastic road runner. The two-speed and single-speed transfer case will also make difference in the on road performance of this car. The eight speed gearbox will perfectly supply power to this machine. Thanks to the new aluminium chassis, the new RR Sport is much lighter than before which makes it more agile and responsive on road. The different torque settings play a vital role in its performance while you take this SUV off road.

Mileage and Safety Features

The fuel figures are not confirmed as it’s yet to arrive in India. The car will have some vital safety features like 10 airbags, ESP, roll stability control and speed sensing door locks.

Suspension and Brakes

The adjustable suspension system favours the on and off road usage of this car. It’s capable to hold this heavy car easily and provide you comfortable journeys. The ventilated discs on all four wheels work accurately and gives you precise braking with the help of ABS with EBD.

Ride and Handling

The long wheelbase, strong suspension system and broad tyres give great stability to this car. The light variable -ratio electric steering wheel helps you a lot while driving this car in city traffic. The off road performance of RR Sport further improves with the addition of features like hill descent control, hill start assist and traction control system. The high ground clearance also plays a vital role while off roading. This is surely going to be the best on and off road machine from Range Rover till now.

Shades, Variants and Warranty

The shades, variants and warranty of this car will only be disclosed after its official arrival in India.

Verdict

The attractive looks, powerful engine options and superb ride and handling make the new Range Rover Sport a complete value for money car. It will be exciting to see how Indians react when this car enters our Indian car market next year.
