Range Rover gets new sports SUV

LONDON: The new Range Rover is getting a more athletic brother. Only a few weeks after the premiere of the luxurious off-roader, Land Rover is now taking the wraps off the new Range Rover Sport.

The British manufacturer has announced the first deliveries are set to take place in mid-2022. Just like its brother, the new Range Rover Sport is recognisable by a smoothed-out design that has been reduced to very few lines. However, the five-seater is a little flatter and has a more sloping front and rear windscreen.

On the inside, both Range Rovers share a new platform complete with electronic roll compensation and all-wheel steering, but the Sports version puts a little more emphasis on the driver to allow for better control while driving.


They use identical powertrains with fuel consumption figures between 0.9 and 11.7 litres (C02 emissions: 20 to 266 g/km).

The Sport, for example, is also powered by the company's own six-cylinder diesels with a displacement of three litres and 183 kW/250 hp, 221 kW/300 hp or 258 kW/350 hp.

In addition, there is the six-cylinder petrol engine, also three litres in size, with 294 kW/400 hp as well as the V8 petrol engine, which Land Rover buys from BMW. It has 4.4 litres of displacement and moves to the top of the range with 390 kW/530 hp.

As the most powerful engine, it also provides the best acceleration and a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds. There are also two plug-in hybrids, which are also based on a six-cylinder petrol engine.


They have system outputs of 324 kW/440 hp or 375 kW/510 hp and, with their 38 kWh battery, have an electric range of up to 113 kilometres. If that's not enough, you'll have to wait until 2024, when the Range Rover Sport will also be available fully electric.

Prices for the now third generation of the sports model are to start at €93,000 (RM430,000). This is about one third less than the conventional Range Rover.
