British carmaker Land Rover has introduced the new, third-generation Range Rover Sport SUV.

The trip was broadcast for the first time at an exclusive presentation at the Jaguar Land Rover Product Development Center in Gaidon, UK. James Bond’s film stuntman Jessica Hawkins was at the helm of Range Rover Sport. In the latest challenge for the Land Rover, the new Range Rover Sport demonstrated impressive traction, traction and stability.

In previous tests, the Range Rover Sport set a record for the first registered crossing of the Arabian Peninsula’s Empty Quarter Desert and became the first car to cross the 999-step stone ladder to the Gates of Heaven in China in 2018.

The new Range Rover Sport is built on Land Rover’s state-of-the-art scalable modular platform (MLA-Flex). The powerplant range includes two six-cylinder high-reach plug-in hybrids. They allow up to 113 km of electricity alone and emit only 18 g / km of CO2.

The new 530bhp V8 Twin Turbo engine with Dynamic Launch gives the car the performance of a sports car, accelerating to 100 km / h in just 4.5 seconds. Customers can choose from light hybrid or MHEV petrol and diesel “Ingenium” family engines. Meanwhile, as Land Rover continues its path to an electrified future, a 100% electric version will be available in 2024.

The new Range Rover Sport is available in “S”, “SE”, “HSE” and “Autobiography”. The First Edition, on the other hand, will be available in the first year of production and will be available with specially adapted equipment.

For the first time, the Dynamic Air Suspension system introduces variable displacement springs, which are fitted to the all-new Range Rover Sport. The intelligent system extends the range of suspension operation by changing the pressure in the air springs and providing exactly the comfort and dynamic handling expected of a Range Rover Sport. To improve response and prepare for cornering in a timely manner, the car monitors the road ahead of it based on eHorizon navigation data.

At the center of the front panel is the Pivi Pro infotainment system with a curved high-resolution 13.1-inch touch screen. It manages everything from navigation systems to multimedia and car settings.

The new Range Rover Sport debuts adaptive off-road cruise control, which helps the driver maintain a smooth ride in difficult terrain. The driver can choose one of four comfort settings, and the system intelligently adjusts the driving speed, allowing the driver to focus only on steering.

In addition to the new Range Rover, the new Range Rover Sport will be produced exclusively at the Solihala plant in the UK, the historic home of the Range Rover.

Delivery orders for the new model will be accepted from the end of May, and the first cars will reach the Baltic States this autumn. The price of the new Range Rover Sport is from 98,450 euros.
