It’s not that only the biggest vehicles offer a high level of comfort and luxury. The smaller Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a testimony to that. Great SUV with excellent off-road capabilities and high level of comfort will get an expected facelift. And there are pictures to prove it. The 2018 Range Rover Sport might also get some big tweaks on the interior too.
2018 Range Rover Sport – Design
Well, it isn’t big news. It’s time for mid-life cycle update. And the Range Rover Sport will undergo possibly the same updates as its bigger sibling, Range Rover. Those include a new bumper design which holds different shape air intakes. The grille outline is also revised as well as headlights and rear lights. On the inside, we can expect similar changes as on Range Rover. This model might receive two large 10-inch touchscreens, but at this moment it can’t be said for certain since no interior photos are available. Other surfaces on the inside could also be covered with higher quality materials if that’s even possible.
2018 Range Rover Sport – New Powertrain
The engine section remains unchanged. Like the bigger sibling, the base engine is 3.0-liter V6 with a supercharger and 340 horsepower, while there is also same volume and displacement diesel with a turbo instead of a supercharger which produces 254 horsepower. Top of the line is reserved for 5.0-liter supercharged V8 with either 510 or 550 horsepower. But Land Rover might add another powertrain to the lineup. This is indicated by bolt sticker on the windshield. As well as a larger brother, Range Rover Sport might also offer a hybrid powertrain in the U.S. On certain markets there is already diesel powered hybrid. Its technology was seen on Range Rover Concept_e.
2018 Range Rover Sport – Release Date
While we wait for debut for new Range Rover Sport somewhere by the end of this year, we can say that this luxury SUV will probably only get better. And some of its rivals like Porsche Cayenne, BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE-class and Infiniti QX70 should watch out. The price will surely rise but not too much from current’s $66.645.
