Ingenium power for
Range Rover Sport
LAND Rover has introduced its most efficient Range Rover Sport ever which goes on sale later this year.
The big-selling Sport 4x4 now features an efficient Ingenium powertrain, upgraded infotainment system with connectivity and Wi-Fi capability, innovative semi-autonomous driving connected technologies and greater scope for personalisation.
Already available on both Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque models, Ingenium is Jaguar Land Rover's new breed of diesel engine designed for superior performance, refinement and efficiency.
The Ingenium units are built at the company's new multi-million pound engine plant at Wolverhampton.
Land Rover claims the 2.0-litre Ingenium engine's advanced technology and all-aluminium construction contribute to impressive fuel consumption of 45.6mpg and CO2 emissions 164g/km with a 0-60 acceleration time of 8.0 seconds.
UK buyers will also have the option of specifying Jaguar Land Rover's 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine in the latest Range Rover Sport.
The supercharged V6 achieves 340bhp and 450Nm of torque combined with emissions of 243g/km. This engine produces acceleration and power delivery of 0-60 in just 7.1 seconds.
Also new for the 2017 model year the Range Rover Sport features an improved All-Terrain Information Centre, which is accessible via the central touchscreen.
The system displays useful information when driving off-road, such as the direction of the front wheels and the status of the Wade Sensing system. This also now includes Drive Assist, which uses the vehicle's surround-view cameras to help with low-speed manoeuvres when off-road.
One of the most significant features of the latest Range Rover Sport is the introduction of InControl Touch Pro, with a large 10-inch central touchscreen display. As a result the infotainment system features smoother controls and a wider range of connectivity options and apps than ever before.
Prices for the new Range Rover Sport will start at £59,700 and on up to £96,900.
