EFFICIENT NEW ENGINE AND ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FOR 2017 RANGE ROVER SPORT
Range Rover Sport’s status as the world’s ultimate luxury performance SUV has been strengthened with a range of enhancements. The latest model features the most efficient powertrain yet, the introduction of innovative new autonomous driving technologies and greater scope for bespoke personalisation.
One of the most significant additions to the 2017 model year Range Rover Sport comes under the bonnet, with the introduction of Jaguar Land Rover’s advanced 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine. The state-of-the-art powerplant provides enhanced fuel efficiency with emissions as low as 164g/km* and capable of 45mpg*, without compromising performance compared to the 3.0-litre TDV6. The new Ingenium engine is also lighter, providing improved responses, enhanced agility and superior dynamics. Find out more
In addition to new engine technology, Land Rover has introduced a series of autonomous driving technologies to Range Rover Sport. The first-in-sector Advanced Tow Assist feature, takes the stress out of manoeuvring when towing heavy loads. The driver can set the direction of a trailer when reversing using the Terrain Response 2 rotary dial and the vehicle will make all the necessary steering adjustments automatically.
Additional autonomy technology is provided in the form of Blind Spot Assist and Intelligent Speed Limiter. Blind Spot Assist uses sensors on the vehicle to detect other road users approaching in the driver’s blind spot. If the driver risks causing a collision during a lane change, the vehicle will autonomously counter-steer to maintain its position.
Intelligent Speed Limiter uses Traffic Sign Recognition technology to adjust the vehicle’s speed in response to changes in the posted speed limit.
Peerless all-terrain capability remains a cornerstone of the Range Rover family and the 2017 model year Range Rover Sport includes a selection of new features. Low Traction Launch makes it easier for drivers to pull away on low-grip surfaces while the updated 4x4i menu presents all the necessary vehicle information when tackling challenging terrain.
