Range Rover Sport HST: The New 380 HP Version Of British Premium SUV
|   Sunday, April 05, 2015
The Range Rover Sport HST is a sporty version with 380 hp of the British SUV which will debut at the New York Auto Show in early April (1st to 12th April). This model will not be available on the European market.

Land Rover will bring to the Auto Show in New York a stronger version of the Range Rover Sport SUV. This is called the Range Rover Sport HST and will be powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged engine, which will provide 380 horsepower. Range Rover has another strong version in the range for its Sport model: Range Rover Sport SVR rated at 550 hp, but the new model will address those who want an SUV with a sporty appearance but which may be driven daily.


The new Range Rover Sport HST has 40 hp more compared to a Range Rover Sport, normally equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 supercharged engine. But the Range Rover Sport HST comes with a package design called Stealth plus a ceiling painted in Santorini black hue and a redesigned front spoiler. The 21-inch rims present a special design and are finished in gray satin. The stirrups are painted in red for an impressive visual effect and, as an option the Range Rover offers 22-inch wheels.

The hood and front fender vents, the grille and fog lamp bezels feature a Gloss Black finish, mirrored by the Range Rover branding on the edge of the hood and tailgate.


The specialists from Land Rover have modified the suspension of the new Range Rover Sport HST model. However, they affirm that this will not affect the comfort of the model. The changes that have been made reduce body tilting on the sporty cornering approached. Also, the Terrain Response system now has a special dynamic mode, which optimizes the suspension and steering for a dynamic driving style.

Inside, the Range Rover designers chose Oxford leather, in two shades of color, and aluminum inserts. All-Ebony door trims, center console and standard Ebony headlining in combination with a contrast dashboard help create a truly unique environment.


The new Range Rover Sport HST will not, however, be available on the European market, at least initially. Those at Land Rover have announced that the Range Rover Sport HST is designed for markets in North America, China, Russia and the Middle East.

"The HST extends our Range Rover Sport line-up giving customers even greater choice. Sitting between the existing 340hp Range Rover Sport 3.0-liter supercharged V6 and the 550hp supercharged variant, it delivers enhanced V6 performance to go with the renowned comfort and refinement of the Range Rover Sport" declared David Mitchell, Vehicle Program Director Range Rover Sport.

The HST bears a red Sport badge at the rear, complemented by a unique HST badge on the front fender vents, just as other Dynamic Range Rover Sport variants.
Prices and availability of the Range Rover Sport HST Limited Edition will be reveled later this year.
