Range Rover Sport enhanced with special edition models and new straight-six mild-hybrid diesels

The Range Rover Sport has received an array of upgrades to enhance its appeal, including efficient new six-cylinder diesel engines, advanced technology and connectivity and eight new exterior colour options and interior choices. In addition new special-edition models are joining the existing line-up giving Range Rover Sport buyers more choice than ever.

 

With new in-line Ingenium diesel engines featuring mild hybrid technology drivers benefit from the performance of the older engines but with the fuel consumption and emissions of a modern six-cylinder unit. The D350 and D300, replace the V8 and V6 diesel, and bring Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology to the Range Rover Sport for the first time; being RDE2-certiifed, they’re also one of the world’s leading clean diesel engines.

 

Alongside the smoother, more refined and more efficient diesel engines are a range of powerful petrol and PHEV powertrains. The Range Rover Sport P400e PHEV, provides 25 miles (41 km) of EV range and claimed fuel economy of 88.3 mpg (3.2l/100 km), thanks to a powerful 300 PS (221 kW) Ingenium petrol engine and an 105 kW electric motor for a combined 404 PS (297 kW). It’s also quick – reaching 60 mph in 5.9 seconds (0-100 km in 6.3 seconds). The now standard-fit Mode 3 cable means a full charge takes less than three hours from a wall box or public charging point, compared to 7.5 hours via a regular Mode 2 cable.

 

The latest Range Rover Sport engine range comprises:

 

Diesel:

D300 – 300 PS (221 kW), 3.0-litre six-cylinder MHEV, 650 Nm of torque at 1500 rpm to 2500 rpm

D350 – 350 PS (258 kW), 3.0-litre six-cylinder MHEV, 700 Nm of torque at 1500 rpm to 3000 rpm

P400 – 400 PS (294 kW), 3.0-litre six-cylinder, 550 Nm of torque at 2000 rpm to 5000 rpm

P400e – 404 PS (297 kW), 2.0-litre four-cylinder PHEV, 640 Nm of torque at 1500 rpm to 4000 rpm

P575 – 575 PS (423 kW), 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged, 700 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm to 5000 rpm

 

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard across the range, with 4G Wi-Fi connections for up to eight devices, while a new embedded Spotify app gives Spotify Premium subscribers instant access to millions of tracks and podcasts directly through Touch Pro Duo without the need to synchronise a smartphone.

 

In terms of the new editions, here’s what each specific one includes:
