The current generation Range Rover Sport appeared almost a year after the great Range Rover, so it was time to adjust. The Britons presented the updated model, which received several technical innovations, as well as new versions.
Changes in appearance include new fenders and a grille, as well as full LED technology available in 4 different variants. The base has 12 static LEDs, and the next one has matrix lights and 26 elements on each headlamp, and electronics can blur individual vertical parts to protect other drivers in traffic.
The third level is with pixel lights that have 71 diodes and can be divided not only vertically but also horizontally. At the highest level, additional laser parts are available for high beam (two in headlight) and are switched on when driving at speeds above 80 km / h. The headlights illuminate up to 500 meters, and if a “car” is detected, the lasers are immediately switched off.
The interior of the model is also transformed into the spirit of the Range Rover Velar. The central sensor console is the same as the virtual combination of instruments, which comes in the version of the model. The projection display has also been improved, with a diagonal of 10 inches. The company also boasts a new gesture system.
The crossover also got a new engine. Last year, the Sport model was equipped with a 4-cylinder diesel, and now a similar gasoline unit is added. This 2.0 engine will be available for the P300 Si4, featuring 300 significant forces. The maximum torque is 400 Nm. This version of the model is the only one that has changed in the suspension. In all others it is pneumatic. The updated Range Rover Sport is also the first hybrid of the plug-in in the UK. The P400 modification relies on the same 300 PS gasoline engine, but the 8-speed automatic transmission includes an electric motor of 116 hp. The total power of the system is 404 hp and 640 Nm.
Lithium-Ion battery with a capacity of 13.1 kW / h is placed under the charging bay. A special charging station requires 2.45 and 7.5 hours of the standard network. Only electric power, the hybrid range is up to 51 km, with the maximum speed in this mode is 137 km / h. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h lasts 6.7 seconds and the fuel consumption is 2.8 l / 100 km. The four-wheeled outfit is also redesigned, but is the same with the standard model that can exceed the obstacle to 850 mm in depth.

Other modifications retain their engines, and the only version of the 5.0 V8 engine has increased from 510 to 525 hp. The gearbox is only one for all variants – 8-speed automatic. At the top of the model is the Range Rover Sport SVR, with a 575 PS or 700 Nm engine. Instead of an aluminum cap, it is made of carbon fiber and is equipped with large air vents. Other elements of the body are made from the same material. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in this version now lasts 4.5 seconds (so far it was 4.7 seconds).
