Sportier Range Rover Sport


IF YOU want to look like a boss as you prowl the streets, then there’s little that will give you the same effect as a Range Rover, particularly the Range Rover Sport. South Africans love the Range Rover Sport; it’s able to outrun most sports cars on the road and it has the ability to get you into the great outdoors, while keeping you cocooned in ample luxury.

To maintain its dominance, it has been enhanced and here are the details:

The updated Range Rover Sport brings customers more choices when it comes to personalisation and technology. Additionally, Land Rover’s most dynamic model gains a new variant in the form of the Range Rover Sport HST.

The HST enhances the high performance Range Rover Sport driving experience thanks to its uprated 3.0-litre supercharged V6 petrol engine that produces 280kW and 450Nm – 30kW more than the current supercharged V6 model. Unique chassis settings and bespoke design features complement its higher performance.

The bold new HST is identified by its unique exterior design – with a striking black theme – as well as a few interior enhancements, all of which give the high performance luxury SUV a distinctive and dynamic appearance.

On the outside the HST is fitted with stealth-pack lamps front and rear, which feature non-reflective surrounds and combine with a Santorini black contrast roof and a new rear spoiler to give the luxury SUV a purposeful profile. Distinctive 21-inch alloy wheels feature an exclusive dark satin grey finish, highlighting the uprated 20-inch brake discs and eye-catching red brake callipers.

Inside, the HST is finished with duo tone seats, which are trimmed in lavish Oxford leather. In combination with a contrast fascia, all door trims, the centre console and headlining are finished in Ebony trim, which creates a unique environment. The high quality leather upholstery is available in four Ebony colour combinations, along with an all-Ebony option.

Bespoke HST badging on the dashboard, carpet mats and the TFT instrument panel highlight the luxury model’s high performance focus. The sporty cues extend to Noble-plated paddle shift gear levers on the steering wheel and distinctive bright ‘Sports’ pedals, while the aluminium interior trim features a textured ‘Sports’ finish.

To highlight the HST’s high performance competencies, Land Rover’s engineers have devised a unique Terrain Response set-up for the vehicle. It features a Dynamic mode that optimises the suspension and includes electric power assisted steering and other electronic systems to suit on-road driving. This feature provides more controlled electronic damping and a more responsive throttle pedal, while enhancing gearshifts and steering response to match the change in vehicle character.
