Range Rover Sport
Starting from £64,725
ExteriorBorn from a relentless drive to create a contemporary yet authentic design, its distinctive silhouette, streamlined front elevation and rearward sloping roof give the vehicle immense road presence.
With seductive flowing lines and stylish features such as the side vent and grille, the sophisticated design of the vehicle is conveyed without compromising its character.
It is beautifully proportioned with a muscular and contemporary look. The tapered bodywork and wide track help give the vehicle a powerful, planted stance.
While the gentle curves, signature headlamps and sculpted corners denote the precision of its design that is unmistakably Land Rover.
InteriorContemporary. Beautifully designed. Flawlessly executed. Range Rover Sport’s interior is meticulously appointed to reflect its character. Superb detailing, strong elegant lines and clean surfaces combined with luxurious soft touch finishes. Intuitively placed controls, such as the CommandShift 2, create a cabin that places the driver at its centre.
The centrepiece of the interior is the bold intersection between the strong horizontal elements of the instrument panel and the vertical lines of the centre console. The dynamic character of the cockpit is complemented by the faster angle of the centre console, with its striking satin chrome pillars which flow from the instrument panel through into the rear cabin.
The finest materials and a keen eye for detail helped to shape this comfortable yet purposeful space. The strong architectural lines of the interior are balanced by soft lighting and the choice of colourways available. The use of leather and metal truly complements the sporty styling.
For additional seating versatility, the 5+2arrangement has two seats stowed under the floor of the luggage compartment, with no loss of boot space and are split 50/50. They have been designed for occasional use, enabling the vehicle to accommodate up to seven occupants. The second row seats have forwards/backwards movement of 100mm allowing for better access to the third row seats and flexible accomodation.
Power operation is standard for the third row seats (not available for SDV8 Autobiography Dynamic or SVR derivatives). When folded, the third row seats leave a flat floor in the luggage compartment with no loss of space compared to the five-seat model.
Matrix-LED headlights enhance the vehicle’s exterior while the interior features perforated Windsor leather seats.

With over 65 years of all-terrain expertise, this vehicle has Land Rover capability at its heart. Our unique Terrain Response system enables the driver to optimise the vehicle’s engine, gearbox, centre differential and chassis systems to match the demands of the terrain, by selecting one of the easily identifiable driving modes.
The Terrain Response 2 system enhances this even further by monitoring driving conditions and automatically selecting the driving modes to achieve the best possible chassis and powertrain set up for the conditions. There are up to six Terrain Response modes: General Driving, Grass/Gravel/ Snow, Mud and Ruts, Sand, Rock Crawl and Dynamic.
The Terrain Response Dynamic setting allows the driver to select a dedicated program for enthusiastic on-road driving, delivering a much more engaging and agile driving experience, with a firmer ride, tighter body control with reduced roll, and more responsive steering and performance.
All-Terrain Progress ControlAll-Terrain Progress Control is a state-of-the-art system that enables drivers to set and maintain a steady speed in challenging conditions.
Operating like a cruise control system, it functions between 1mph and 18mph, enabling the driver to maintain full concentration on steering and finding a path through obstacles, while the vehicle controls the engine and brakes to hold a comfortable, steady speed. Developed by Land Rover’s industryleading all-terrain specialists, the system requires no additional hardware or sensors, and works seamlessly alongside the Terrain Response 2, traction and braking systems.
Once All-Terrain Progress Control is activated, the standard steering wheel +/- cruise control buttons are used to set the speed; brake and accelerator pedals can still override the chosen settings, with gentle braking achieving a reduction in target speed.
Hill Descent ControlTo complement the Terrain Response system, Range Rover Sport can also call upon a unique suite of all-terrain technologies to help maximise performance and safety. Hill Descent Control (HDC) assists with controlled descent of difficult slopes by maintaining a constant speed and applying braking separately to each wheel. Hill Start Assist (HSA) ensures you do not roll backwards as you pull away on an incline. The vehicle also utilises Gradient Release Control which is designed to prevent the vehicle ‘running away’ on a steep incline when the driver inadvertently releases the brake.
Wade SensingWith a wading depth of upto 850mm, whether crossing streams, fords or flooded areas, the optional Wade Sensing can prove invaluable. Unique to Land Rover, using sensors in the wing mirrors it alerts the driver, both visual and audible, if the water is too deep, by providing real-time pictorial information about the water’s depth in relation to the vehicle, as well as maximum wading capability via the Touch-screen.
This displays the angle at which the vehicle is entering deeper or shallower water, which is particularly beneficial in the dark when it is difficult to predict the wading depth.
Dynamic Response transforms vehicle handling through hydraulic roll control, optimising on road performance and passenger comfort, by reducing the amount of body lean during cornering or uneven road surfaces.
The latest two-channel system is capable of controlling the front and rear axles independently, allowing it to be tuned to deliver increased low-speed agility, along with enhanced control and stability at speed.
With this feature, off-road capability is improved. If the system detects off-road conditions, the control module reduces the level of roll compensation, thus allowing greater wheel articulation and increasing the contact patch with the terrain. When operating in Dynamic Response mode, wheel articulation is a class-leading 546mm*. Roll Stability Control is a sophisticated roll mitigation system that uses gyroscopic sensing to detect the onset of a potential roll-over; brakes are applied on the outer wheels to widen the turn radius and reduce the likelihood of a roll-over.
The Torque Vectoring system with Dynamic Active Rear Locking Differential delivers responsive, controlled cornering and handling through even the tightest of bends. The electronic differential and vehicle’s brake system constantly balance the distribution of engine torque between the four wheels when cornering. Exceptional grip and steering confirm Range Rover Sport as our most dynamic SUV. The system is also active in off-road conditions using the relevant Terrain Response settings. It can be very effective in conditions such as sand, where it helps the vehicle turn in and avoid excessive understeer.
Featuring continuously variable dampers, Adaptive Dynamics provides the optimum balance of ride and control by offering infinitely variable damper settings between soft and firm extremes. The system monitors vehicle movements at least 500 times per second, reacting to driver or road inputs virtually instantaneously to give great control and minimise body roll, providing a composed, flat ride. The system even senses off-road conditions, and optimises damping accordingly.
Dynamic Stability Control
Stay safe when cornering as Dynamic Stability Control detects deviation from your chosen course and applies appropriate braking.
The system monitors the vehicle 100 times per second via the Dynamic Stability Control module. As the vehicle accelerates through a corner, the system uses yaw sensors to detect the beginning of understeer. Imperceptible levels of braking are then used to correct the vehicle attitude, while engine torque is transferred to the outside wheels, which have more grip, thus maintaining traction and steering control.
Range Rover Sport features a Four-Corner Air Suspension system which delivers class-leading comfort and capabilities both on and off-road. The air suspension system automatically switches between two ride heights when the off-road setting is selected. Maximum ground clearance is increased by 65mm above normal ride height at speeds less than 30mph. The suspension system delivers impressive wheel travel – with 260mm of movement at the front and 272mm at the rear, providing exceptional wheel articulation and composure to deal with the toughest conditions.
Automatic Access HeightAttention-to-detail is everywhere you look and in everything you touch. For instance, the new Automatic Access Height feature lowers the vehicle with precision by up to 50mm, for easier entry and exit when parked. Arriving in style at any function has never been more relaxed.
Towing and Driving Aids
With a towing capacity of up to 3,500kg (3,000kg limit on SDV6 Hybrid Diesel engine and SVR model) and by incorporating tailored technologies, Range Rover Sport can handle the most demanding of tasks.
E;ectrically Deployable Tow Bar
This bespoke system has been optimised alongside the Range Rover Sport advanced aluminium chassis construction. The Electrically Deployable Tow Bar is stowed discreetly behind the bumper, providing a clean attractive finish. It is designed to deploy/store in 12 seconds and is sensitive to obstructions.
Tow Hitch Assist
Tow Hitch Assist makes coupling a trailer to the vehicle much easier by helping you visualise the hitching process; it displays the predicted path of the vehicle towards the trailer tow bar on the Touch-screen. On the road, the Tow Assist feature helps with reversing by predicting the trailer‘s direction. You can even choose your trailer’s width for precise guidelines displayed on the Touch-screen.
Surround Camera System
For a complete, all-round view, the optional Surround Camera System incorporating T-Junction View helps to see everything clearly on the highresolution full-colour Touch-screen. Using four digital cameras discreetly placed around the vehicle, the system provides an almost complete 360 degree view including a birds-eye overhead view. It aids parking and is perfect for more complex driving assignments such as towing a yacht or a horsebox by displaying the predicted path of the trailer on the Touch-screen. Along with the ability to display several different views at the same time, this technology can also zoom and pan, ensuring objects and angles, normally below the line of sight, can be seen.
Sports Command Driving Position
Range Rover Sport provides drivers with a Sports Command Driving Position by elevating the driver within the vehicle, delivering the supreme sense of confidence and control with a sporting, less upright seating position.
This offers a reassuring view of the vehicle and its surroundings, with clear visibility to the side and outstanding forward visibility over the characteristic profile of the bonnet; all of which contribute to the unique Range Rover Sport character.
Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS)
The Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) system helps to deliver accurate, consistent steering and agile cornering. Power assistance is speed-sensitive so the steering is light and responsive at lower speeds and firmer at higher speeds. It is also energy-efficient and reduces fuel consumption.
Full Thin Film Transistor (TFT) Instrument Panel
The 12.3 inch virtual instrument panel uses high-resolution display technology and colour graphics for clear communication of the main vehicle functions and data. With elegant virtual dials resembling 3D chrome it can be tailored to display only information that is relevant to the current driving situation.
Head-Up Display is an option that presents key vehicle data such as road speed, gear position and navigation directions on the windscreen, without distraction or the need for you to take your eye off the road.
In a world first, the Land Rover system features laser holographic techniques, resulting in superior colour saturation, brightness and contrast.
The innovative laser system is more robust against issues such as ‘washout’ - the effect that the glare from sunlight has on inferior LED-based systems. The system is fully configurable and can be customised to your specific requirements.
Dual View Touch-Screen
The centrepiece of the facia is the eight-inch high-resolution Touch-screen that is available with the Dual View system. This allows the driver and passenger to view completely independent display content, for example, the driver can use the Premium HDD Satellite Navigation System, while the front seat passenger is able to watch a DVD or TV. One set of WhiteFire® digital wireless headphones is included.
Comfort For All
To ensure that the interior is maintained at the perfect temperature whatever the weather outside, Range Rover Sport features a climate control system which is based on class-leading technology. The result of an incredibly rigorous development programme, the system has been tested in real-world conditions in temperatures ranging from +50 to -30°C. Three versions are available: the standard two-zone system, a three-zone system, or the premium four-zone system with separate climate controls for driver, front passenger and each side of the rear cabin. With its independent heating and cooling capability in the rear compartment, the four-zone system offers great comfort in the rear seats, with multiple outlets at face, foot and hip level.
Remote Park Heat With Timed Climate
Optional Remote Park Heat with Timed Climate enables you to pre-heat or cool the vehicle with remote control and seven-day timer. This pre-heats the engine, channelling residual heat into the cabin, so the vehicle is warm and comfortable by the time you need to leave. It can be activated immediately by remote control, or pre-programmed through the Touchscreen to ensure it is ready for your regular morning departure time.
Configurable Interior Mood Lighting
Passengers can change the interior lighting to suit their tastes. There are ten colours in total ranging from Spark Blue through to Ice White and Racing Red. Simply operated variable brightness controls can help create the desired mood. The clean, elegant lines and premium materials of the interior are complemented by carefully-detailed LED mood lighting that brings the cabin alive at night.
For a luxurious travelling experience, the option of a full-size sliding panoramic roof allows light to pour into the cabin, making it feel even more spacious and relaxed. It is designed to maintain a comfortable interior temperature with solar protection built into the glass. For additional shade, a sun blind with a solar reflective coating can be extended across the full surface of the glass roof. A fixed panoramic roof is also available.
Rear Seat Entertainment
The optional Rear Seat Entertainment System provides either eight-inch screens built in to the headrest or the big-screen entertainment, offering twin remote 10.2 inch rear seat mounted screens. Both systems come with a pair of WhiteFire® digital wireless headphones and a USB connector. It includes ‘Journey Status’, a Navigation Summary screen which displays a pop-up for the rear occupant detailing the time and distance to destination.
This feature adds practicality and makes life with your Range Rover Sport even easier. Electronically-operated, simply by performing a smooth upward movement of the foot beneath the sensor, Gesture Tailgate enables the driver to operate the tailgate (both to open and close) from the kerbside without needing to physically touch either the vehicle or the key fob. And as the system is compatible with accessory towing solutions, you can still tackle demanding situations with the least amount of fuss.
Soft Door Close
For additional convenience, the Range Rover Sport is available with optional Soft Door Close for all doors. This allows the last 6mm of the travel of the doors to be controlled and provides a soft close of the front and rear doors.

A category first, the all-aluminium monocoque body makes the vehicle lighter, stronger, safer, more fuel efficient and sustainable. Being light also improves both speed and agility for a refined driving experience. The body has been engineered to withstand the same off-road impacts as all Land Rovers. This structure means that traditional energy intensive
construction methods, such as spot welding, are not required. To create such a weight-efficient body, the structure features a rigorously optimised combination of pressed, cast and extruded aluminium alloy components, so that the strength of the bodyshell is concentrated precisely where the loads are greatest. This results in a structure which delivers outstanding stiffness and refinement together with excellent crash performance. This structure is supported by a lightweight front and rear suspension designed to deliver a much broader range of dynamic capabilities across all terrains.
SUSPENSIONPrimarily constructed from lightweight aluminium components, the suspension is fully independent, with a wide-spaced double-wishbone design at the front and an advanced multi-link layout at the rear. The suspension concept is specifically developed to maximise the Range Rover Sport’s unrivalled breadth of capability, offering responsive and agile handling together with supreme ride quality and refinement.
I picked up my discovery sport on Tuesday and, as with all my dealings with Lloyd Land Rover, it was excellent. Always friendly, very helpful and a great deal with thanks to Afzol and all the team.
