Range Rover Sport – More Choice for 2013

New paint finishes and a greater choice of alloy wheels and interior trims, including carbon fibre highlight the 2013 Range Rover Sport.

“The Range Rover Sport was substantially revised in 2011 with major powertrain enhancements and raised equipment levels to reinforce its outstanding breadth of capability,” said Gary Upson, the Land Rover brand manager for New Zealand.

“For 2013 we’re going one step further, offering even more choice with some great new colour combinations and detail improvements to redefine the Range Rover Sport’s class-leading levels of comfort and customer appeal.”

To complement the exterior design changes updated at 2012 model year, a new five-spoke cast alloy wheel design in Sparkle Silver and five new body colours provide customers with greater levels of choice when it comes to enhancing the look of their Range Rover Sport: Barolo, Barossa, Causeway, Havana and Mariana are all introduced for 2013.

Customers opting for the Supercharged model will discover red

Brembo brake calipers fitted as standard with the option of reverting back to black high performance brakes at no additional cost.

The interior specifications offer two new interior trim combinations allowing customers to choose a dark upper cabin environment with lighter coloured seats or the opposite way round. Customers can also opt for a new carbon veneer pack, adding a sharp, contemporary look to the interior.

Introduced at 2012 model year, the Range Rover Sport comes equipped with the highest level of audio equipment. The High-Ice Harmon Kardon system delivers 380W of sound from a total of 11 speakers whilst the premium Harmon Kardon Logic system produces 825W from no less than 17 speakers.

The 7-inch touch screen provides customers with the option of Dual View technology, allowing the driver to view the navigational display and the passenger to watch a DVD. Advanced features include a hard disc drive music server and Land Rover’s unique “Say What You See” voice recognition system with screen prompts.

The outstanding Range Rover Sport engine line-up remains unchanged for 2013. The 3.0-litre turbo diesel has performance with high efficiency producing 180kW and a maximum torque of 600Nm.

The naturally aspirated 5.0-litre petrol produces 276kW with 510Nm torque and the flagship 5.0-litre Supercharged 375kW with 625Nm torque. All engines drive through unrivalled ZF HP28 6-speed automatic gearboxes. Gears can be manually selected by steering wheel paddles when “Drive” is not used.
