The wait is over: say hello to the new 2021 Range Rover Sport, the long-anticipated reboot of the automaker’s, dare we say, best selling SUV and its myriad of features are enough to make anyone’s head spin. From top to bottom, inside and out, this vehicle is filled to the brim with luxury, sporty options and features.
First things first, a new generation of Land Rover’s six-cylinder Ingenium diesel engines are confirmed for introduction on the Range Rover Sport. They bring 48V Mild-Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) diesel technology to the Range Rover Sport for the first time and are RDE2-certified. Developed at the home of Range Rover, these new in-line engine will be available in the D250, D300 and D350 variants, with power outputs ranging from 183kW to 258kW.
Customers will be able to choose from a range of interior colour themes (plus a seat colour), an array of real wood veneers, aluminium interior finishes, 19 exterior paint options alongside eight new colours including Tourmaline Brown, Amethyst Grey-Purple and Petrolix Blue.
As you can imagine, the 2021 Range Rover Sport boasts a variety of safety features, all the following of which are available across all the models: Roll Stability Control, Dynamic Stability Control, Electronic Traction Control, Trailer Stability Assist, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, Gradient Release Control, Engine Drag Torque Control, Antilock Braking System, Emergency Brake Lights, Lane Departure Warning, Front And Rear Parking Aid, Cruise Control And Speed Limiter, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Corner Brake Control, Emergency Brake Assist, and Electronic Park Brake.
A full suite of safety and driver assistance technologies is available, including a choice of Drive Pro packs, plus Park and Park Pro packs. A configurable Interactive Driver Display and Head Up Display consolidate the Range Rover Sport’s range of technology features.
Moving on to technology, there’s a host of connectivity options, including two high-definition 10-inch Touch Pro Duo touchscreens form the centrepiece of the minimalist cabin. Land Rover promises that these are fast and intuitive. The infotainment system combines finely engineered physical controls and a beautiful digital interface to deliver a truly connected driving experience.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are offered as standard across all models for you to enjoy on that infotainment estate, while up to eight 4G Wi-Fi connections can be made, keeping the driver and passengers connected at all times.
The new embedded Spotify app also gives Spotify Premium subscribers instant access to millions of tracks and podcasts directly through Touch Pro Duo without the need to synchronise a smartphone with the vehicle.
All models feature signature daytime running lights, automatic headlights and power wash. The advanced LED technology offers four headlight options: Premium, Matrix, Pixel and Pixel-Laser. The standard Premium headlight package has 24 LEDs per vehicle, with Signature Running Lights and optional Auto High Beam Assist.
The 2021 model is being hailed as the “fastest, most agile and responsive” of all Land Rovers. Local availability and pricing is yet to be announced.
