Car Feature: Range Rover Sport Autobiography

The name Range Rover is no stranger, when one thinks of a vehicle that can conquer off-road terrains, rivers and muddy roads, and at the same time handle urban terrain comfortably with ease, and in-style. While there are many variants to choose from, today we look at the Range Rover Sport Model available in YBG Auto.

As with any other Range Rovers ever introduced, the Sport model inherits its siblings’ muscular and aggressive look, making its presence instantly noticeable on the roads. Precision engineering and much thought has been poured into the design of the vehicle.

Performance

This Sport model houses the range-topping 5.0 Litre Supercharged V8 Petrol Engine, outputting 510 PS at 6,500 rpms, and a whopping 625 Nm of torque between the 2,500-5,500 rpm range. This comes with the eight-speed transmission with CommandShift manual shift mode. This combination propels the Sport up to a (electronically limited) top speed of 250kph. You can be sure this car is ready to handle any challenges thrown at it, whether on or off-road.

Going off-road and getting a little wet? Nothing to worry about as the Range Rover Sport boasts a water wading depth of 850mm, a good 150mm improvement over the previous, first-gen model.

This full time four-wheel drive comes standard with all the safety features you would expect- DSC, Traction Control, Hill Descent Control System, Hill Start Assist, Gradient Release Control, Roll Stability Control, and those unique to Range Rovers, the Terrain Response System. This allows the driver to switch between driving settings- General, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, Sand and Rock Crawl.

Other smart features include Wade Sensing, Dynamic Response active lean control, Dynamic Active Rear Locking Differential and Torque Vectoring by Braking as an addition to Adaptive Dynamics.

Interior

The driver’s cockpit, stylishly designed, yet simple enough to offer a hassle-free drive, while making all the important and necessary controls available at your fingertips. The seating position has also been designed to give the driver a good view of what is coming up ahead on the roads, inspiring confidence and total control on the vehicle.

Climate control assures a comfortable experience for drivers and passengers, whether it rains or shines outside.

The Range Rover Sport features a comfortable and luxurious interior of electronic seats and hand-wrapped in leather. While maintaining its comfort, the car is still designed to be practical. While maintaining its base as a 5 seater, the Sport also has the options to make it a 5+2 when the need arises. Plenty of space to accommodate your golf clubs, or to carry enough supplies for a weekend camping trip to the wild outdoors.

Entertainment

The Meridian Reference Sound System provides drivers and passengers a unique listening experience during the journey. 22 Speakers and a subwoofer boasts rich sound quality and outstanding clarity.

If you are the kind of person who demands performance from their vehicle, wants something versatile and big enough to move the family around, yet tough and adventurous enough to bring you off-road and back in one piece, look no further than the Range Rover Sport.
