Design: vigorous, decisive, strong
The New Range Rover Sport features a strong exterior design, modern, bold, which suggests a driving performance and clearly positions between the vehicle and the Range Rover Evoque, with which it shares the design DNA.
Gerry McGovern, Design Director and Chief Creative Officer of Land Rover, said: "The New Range Rover Sport is a premium SUV by definition. A Range Rover Sport for a new era: modern, sustainable, absolutely desirable. Beside the Range Rover and all'Evoque, the Range Rover Sport is the third pillar of the constant evolution of the Range Rover and a British brand characterized by an exceptional design " .
The new vehicle, brilliant interpretation of the distinctive design of its predecessor, sports a sleek and contemporary, in addition to a particular optimization of the interior spaces. The New Sport is only 62 mm longer than the previous, and yet, with its 4,850 mm is shorter than other seven-seat SUV and most of the E-segment sedans, and thus more maneuverable and easy to park. However, his pace considerably higher (+178 mm), offers more space and ease of access to passengers in the second row of seats.
The front and rear overhangs reduced and increased width (+55 mm) give the new vehicle a more modern look.
Stronger due to the angulation of the windshield, the aerodynamic profile and rounded and dynamic roof sloping line, the New Range Rover Sport is 8% more aerodynamic as the previous version (Cd 0.34). The New Sport is 149 mm shorter and 55 mm lower than the New Range Rover, on which the project is based and, for the same set up, weighs 45 kg less.

Although it was developed in conjunction with the Range Rover which has some points in common, the New Range Rover assembles 75% of unique components, many of which directly affect the aesthetics and guidance, giving the vehicle its new identity.

Identity that the customer can customize at will, from alloy wheels, available 19 ", 20", 21 and 22 ", including the iconic circle "Viper's Nest", for the first time offered on all Range Rover.

The excursion of the wheels is record-breaking (260 mm front and 272 mm rear), for exceptional articulation of 546 mm which allows you to easily tackle even the most difficult situations. The maximum light from the ground increases to 278 mm (+51 mm), the air suspension system automatically varies between two ride heights, and the innovativeTerrain Response ® 2 automatically selects the most appropriate program.

The fifth-generation air suspension allow you to vary the height of no less than 115 mm, from the lowest position "access" (now increased to -50 mm, a decrease of 10 mm compared to the previous version, to facilitate the ascent and descent passengers) the standard height for off-road. An automatic function, activated by sensors, raise the vehicle by 35 mm when needed. The suspensions may also be further extended to other 35 mm with manual control, bringing the excursion possible to a total of 185 mm.

The suspension system, redesigned with the new intermediate height offroad +35 mm, allows to keep the mode Terrain at much higher speeds (80 km / h compared to the previous 50 km / h): a great advantage on long roads, bumpy or dirt.

The new power-assisted steering is lighter and more direct. It will be available the choice between two-wheel drive systems. The first includes a gearbox with two speed ranges, for the most challenging off-road, with a subdivision of default of the pair 50/50 and 100% bloccabilità.

The other, 18 kg lighter, presents a box of a single range of reduction ratios and Torsen differential, which automatically distributes the torque to the axle that has more grip, and works together with the traction control systems to ensure traction in each condition. The division of the couple's default is 42/58, with 58% to the rear axle, for optimum driving dynamics.

Engines: four at the launch and a new hybrid to follow
