New Range Rover Sport debuts for over R$1 million, waits nine months – 10/26/2022

Land Rover unveiled the new Range Rover Sport on Wednesday. The sporty SUV hits the Brazilian market in November starting at R$953,950 and can go up to R$1,125,950.

“The new generation Range Rover Sport is the redefinition of sporting luxury, bringing together attributes that take it to the highest level ever seen in its three generations,” said Tiago Yoshitake, Product Manager, Land Rover.

According to João Oliveira, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover Latin America, there are already 800 orders for the new model, with 150 arriving here this year. The executive estimates that the waiting list currently reaches nine months.

evolution of styles

Built on the modular MLA-Flex platform, the Range Rover Sport features bolder lines than the new Range Rover, which chooses a more sophisticated and futuristic path. However, the model retains the straight lines that have characterized the Range Rover since its debut in the 1970s.

There are exclusive details on the optical assembly and several black painted applications with a high gloss finish. The biggest difference comes from the interconnected horizontal taillights, while the alloy wheels measure 23 inches and have a sportier design.

The cabin has shapes that enhance the cockpit feel, with most information geared more towards the driver. The driver, by the way, sits 2cm lower than the Range Rover to enhance the sporty driving feel.

The Meridian Signature audio system features noise cancellation technology, which works through microphones installed near the wheels. The dashboard has a 13.9-inch screen and the Pivi Pro media center screen is curved and measures 13.1 inches.

The equipment list bears similarities to the Range Rover, with things like “transparent bonnet” technology (which projects the image of the front of the car as if the vehicle had no bonnet) and a camera instead of the interior mirror. The adaptive suspension, in turn, uses GPS coordinates to adjust it to the road conditions ahead.

hybrid and sports

Initially, the SUV will be imported in the same engines as the Range Rover: 3.0 mild hybrid diesel (350 hp and 71.3 kgfm) and 4.4 V8 gasoline (530 hp and 73.4 kgfm). From 2023, the car receives a third engine, the 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder with plug-in hybrid technology (359 hp and 50.9 kgfm).

The trim lineup includes Dynamic SE, Dynamic HSE and First Edition options.

As with all Land Rovers, the Range Rover Sport has a number of technologies designed for off-road use. The Terrain Response 2 all-wheel-drive system offers six off-road-oriented driving modes. There’s even an automatic mode where the vehicle itself selects the best fit.

The immersion capacity is 900 mm, while the turning circle is 10.95 meters. As an option, the SUV can have the rear axle steering up to 7.3 degrees.
