Land Rover has taken the wraps off its for 2018 facelift for the Range Rover Sport. Now, the updated SUV features quite a few cosmetic changes inside and out and also new variants.
The two variants are - SVR (range-topping trim) and a new plug-in hybrid trim. The facelifted model will be replaced by an all-new model that is expected in 2020. However, we will be talking about the SVR here!
The Range Rover Sport SVR is powered by the Jaguar F-type SVR's 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine that develops 575bhp and 700Nm of peak torque. The SUV catapults from a 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds. Now, that's fast!
Moreover, the Range Rover Sport facelift will be offered with a full range of petrol and diesel powertrains, including Ingenium four-cylinder and V6 and V8 units.
Compared to the outgoing model, the facelift has a tweaked grille and new LED headlamps. The car also features a new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system that features two 10.0-inch touchscreens, up to 12 power points and an activity key that allows owners to lock and unlock their vehicle without a key fob.
By introducing the facelifted version of the Range Rover Sport and especially the SVR, the automaker is setting a new benchmark for SUVs. Hoping to expect more and something unique from Range Rover in the near future.
