If many have the impression that the Range Rover Sport is part of the furniture in the catalog of the British manufacturer Land Rover, then the model appears only 17 years on the clock. Born in 2005, the first generation borrowed the underside of discovering that time. The second saw a nice upscale move with the big Range Rover this time as the technical base. Launched with great fanfare in 2013 at the New York Auto Show, attended by actor Daniel Craig, this luxury SUV is now poised to pass the torch to a third generation derived, here too, from the Range Rover.
strength and agility
It is not surprising that British designers once again opt for the robust look, enhanced by taut surfaces, which inspire strength and agility. Despite the beautiful stylistic sophistication, the shape of the machine is still instantly recognizable. In addition, short overhangs, an attractive front end and steeply angled glass front and rear combine to ensure an imposing presence on the road, giving the impression that this range is always ready to jump. Everything is accentuated by a very subtle light signature, reminiscent of the frowning eyes of a beast looking for its prey… It’s a great program!
Full electricity in 2024
If the Range Rover Sport will inherit 100% electromechanics in 2024, it can, from its inception, be equipped with two mild hybrid engines or a powerful V8 supercharged petrol engine. The barge can indeed choose a 6-cylinder petrol engine, along with an electric motor, all with 510 hp (Range Rover Sport P510e), for a 6-cylinder diesel engine, also paired with an electric block, with a total power of 440 hp (P440e), or even for a V8 Twin An old fashioned Turbo, devoid of any hybridization, which generates no less than 530 hp (P530)!
In terms of performance, this gives a shot from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.4, 5.8 and 4.5 seconds, respectively. The catalog will also present more modest versions with six-cylinder diesel engines of 250, 300 and 350 hp. Finally, note that the two hybrids have an all-electric range of 113 km.

Compatibility with Amazon Alexa, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay is of course guaranteed.

Super fabrics which replaces the traditional leather. The most demanding can still choose the grain leather. Windsor or semi-aniline fine.
Convenience and versatility
The model promises exceptional comfort, especially thanks to the flight-inspired seats and aerodynamic suspension that opens a system of adaptive-volume springs with active shock absorbers with dual valves capable of combining agility with optimum comfort.
