It looks like the Range Rover Sport lineup just got bigger—three special-edition models and three new engine options bigger, to be exact.
The three new models are the HSE Silver, HSE Dynamic Black, and SVR Carbon Edition. The HSE Silver edition features ‘Shadow Atlas’ exterior trims, privacy glass, and 21-inch gloss black and contrast diamond-turned alloy wheels. This one is available in seven different finishes and two interior choices, and can be had with a petrol or diesel engine. The P400e plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) models will be available in select markets.
The HSE Dynamic Black, as its name suggests, features a black exterior finish and an all-black interior. There’s also a contrast roof up top that comes in either Santorini Black or Carpathian Gray. This model sits on 21-inch gloss black alloys and has also been fitted with privacy glass. Both HSE models come with a fixed panoramic roof and Meridian surround sound system inside as standard.
Meanwhile, the SVR Carbon Edition is basically the Range Rover Sport clad in carbon fiber parts both inside and out. The hood, front bumper, grille, and other parts of the cabin have been fitted with carbon trims, while the engine cover is built with the same material. The vehicle has been given exclusive SVR Carbon Edition treadplates as well as 22-inch gloss black alloy wheels.
As for the new powertrains, what Land Rover has given the Range Rover Sport are the D250, D300, and D350 variants of its new 3.0-liter inline-six Ingenium diesel mill. These Ingenium engines make use of 48V mild-hybrid EV diesel tech for optimum performance and efficiency. Power and torque output are as follows: 246hp and 600Nm for the D250, 296hp and 650Nm for the D300, and 345hp and 700Nm for the D350.
In addition to these new models and engines, Land Rover also announced a few other upgrades for the entire Range Rover Sport lineup. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity is now standard across the range, while the P400e PHEV now gets a standard Mode 3 charging cable for faster charging.
The Cabin Air Ionization system is now available with the Range Rover Sport. This tech provides PM2.5 filtration and can be operated easily using the infotainment system. The system filters out dust particles and allergens to neutralize cabin odor and ensure a safe and clean interior.
So, what do you think of these changes and upgrades that Land Rover has made to the Range Rover Sport lineup?
