The India launch of the new Range Rover Sport comes just days after its international unveil.
Land Rover’s third-generation Range Rover Sport marks a big step forward over its predecessor in terms of comfort, luxury, and even off-road goodies. In India, we’ll get the Range Rover Sport in four variants, with diesel and petrol engine options, along with a plug-in hybrid version.
In terms of variants and pricing, the Range Rover Sport line-up starts with the Dynamic SE at ₹1.64 crores, which is followed by the Dynamic HSE at ₹1.71 crores, the Autobiography at ₹1.81 crores, and finally the First Edition at ₹1.84 crores. These prices are for the 3.0-litre mild-hybrid diesel unit, which makes 346bhp and 700Nm and has a 0 to 100km/h time of 5.9 seconds.
Other engines on offer include a 3.0-litre plug-in hybrid petrol, which produces 434bhp and 620Nm and offers a slightly quicker 0 to 100km/h time of 5.8 seconds. While neither the Land Rover online shop nor the configurator mentions the P530 with the 523bhp 4.4-litre V8, it is mentioned under the model page. So, fingers crossed!
In terms of features, the new Range Rover Sport gets a 13.1-inch infotainment screen, powered by the latest Pivi Pro software, a 13.7-inch digital instrument cluster, a 29-speaker Meridian sound system, Land Rover’s Terrain Response 2 system, and a new Adaptive Off-Road Cruise Control system, among others.
Expect deliveries of the new Range Rover Sport to start towards the end of the year. In terms of rivals, it competes with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz G 350d, which is priced at Rs 1.72 crore, and the Porsche Cayenne GTS, which is priced at Rs 1.69 crore.
