Range Rover Sport Finds a Worthy Successor
|   Thursday, June 20, 2013
The Range Rover is one of the most popular models from Jaguar Land Rover which incidentally makes it the riskiest to replace. However, the company has taken the risk and has come out quite successfully with the all new and technologically advanced Range Rover Sport. The new vehicle, however complex it may seem, is basically a very simple machine, capable of performing the most myriad tasks and supped up with the best of everything in class.

This Sport is also the first vehicle bearing the Range Rover tagline to feature an aluminum chassis and body.
This is also the latest vehicle to make an entry into the foray which makes it the easiest choice for customers as it features the best and the latest from Jaguar Land Rover in every field. The designing changes along with the modifications make the Range Rover Sport lighter than its predecessor by 420 kg.

The twin rail chassis is also used beneath the Land Rover Discovery although the settings on the vehicle are different. The suspension for example have been lowered by a margin which affects handling and makes cornering at high speed reliable and safer than it was earlier. Expected to be priced close to the £85,000 mark, this vehicle is powered by a SDV6 turbo diesel engine displacing 288 BHP.

The high end 5.0 liter supercharged petrol V8 displacing 503 BHP is also available and slightly delivers more power than its diesel counterpart. The latest diesel hybrid vehicle is also quite environment friendly and emits 169 g/km of CO2. The engine is mated to an automated ZF, eight speed transmission systems while Jaguar Land Rover is offering a manual eight speed on the customers' request.

This massive SUV accelerates from 0 – 60 MPH within an impressive 5.3 seconds while featuring an electronically limited top speed of 155 MPH. This pits the Range Rover directly against the all new Porsche Cayenne and this could mean the right amount of competition which was lacking in this segment for the past couple of years. The Range Rover Sport is the perfect mixture of sporty exterior, comfortable interior and mechanical superiority and the engineers are confident of this machine running a super successful show worldwide.

Even though the styling has been inspired by the Land Rover Evoque, the Sport has many unique features which are sure to distinguish between these two siblings. Dimensional changes are not the only differences while interior setting and basic ergonomic changes have also been implemented to distinguish the drive and comfort feel of the Evoque from the Sport.

If you are looking for a tough SUV which has the ability to tread over almost any terrain as well as the urban jungle, the Range Rover Sport is the best option you have. Although this monster returns just 22 MPG, fuel efficiency should not be a cause of concern to people willing to take home this beast. Jaguar Land Rover has managed to replace the Range Rover Sport quite efficiently and effortlessly.
