The Tata conglomerate owned Jaguar Land Rover group (JLR) is on a product offensive. With Jaugar launching it’s all-new F-Type in July, it is now time for Land Rover to launch the all-new and much awaited Range Rover Sport in India. The Range Rover Sport is known to be the sportier cousin to the large Range Rover and is one of Land Rover’s most successful offerings in recent history. 

 

Like in foreign markets, the Range Rover Sport will be offered with two engine options, the V6 Turbocharged Diesel and V8 Supercharged Petrol. The V6 diesel mill, which will be the preferred choice for most customers makes 292PS and an impressive 600Nm of torque. Priced at Rs 1.09 Crore (ex-showroom, Mumbai) the diesel is also the most accessible Range Rover Sport of the lot. The Petrol engined Range Rover Sport is equipped with a 5.0-Litre V8 supercharged mill that produces 510PS and an earth shattering 625NM of Torque. Both the petrol and the diesel come equipped with the highly acclaimed 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox that ensures seamless shifting. 

 

The new Range Rover Sport has several design elements that are similar to that of the smaller Land Rover Evoque. These elements reflect Land Rover’s new design language, which in our opinion is one of the best we have seen in recent times. The all-new Range Rover Sport comes with an all-aluminum monocoque chassis based on the new Range Rover unlike models in the past that had the underpinnings from the Land Rover Discovery.

The all-new Range Rover Sport is 62mm longer and 55mm wider than the previous generation model. The wheelbase too is substantially longer by 178mm which in turn means that the new Range Rover Sport is much bigger on the inside than the outgoing model. Apart from the obvious changes on the exterior and interior, an important addition to the all-new Range Rover sport is the 5+2 seating arrangement which makes it much more user friendly as compared to the older generation Range Rover Sport. The rear +2 seats are electrically powered making them extremely user friendly. However, they are best suited to the likes of shorter individuals or children. We expect the all-new Range Rover Sport to be another hot seller like the Evoque in a market like India.
