For 2017, the latest Range Rover Sport comes equipped with the Ingenium powertrain, upgraded infotainment system with connectivity and wifi capability, innovative new semi-autonomous driving connected technologies and greater scope for personalisation. At 2017 Model Year, Range Rover Sport will debut the new 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine, manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover’s own engine plant in Wolverhampton. Already available on both Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque models, Ingenium is Jaguar Land Rover’s new breed of engine designed for effortless performance, refinement and efficiency.

The 2017 Model Year Range Rover Sport is the first full-sized Land Rover SUV to feature a four-cylinder diesel engine. The 2.0-litre SD4 Ingenium produces 240HP and 500Nm of torque, and is claimed to be capable of returning 45.6mpg on the EU combined cycle.

The introduction of a second turbocharger to the Ingenium engine has been significant in retaining the impressive power output and strong torque characteristics familiar to Range Rover Sport customers. The advanced engine is the first Jaguar Land Rover-built unit to feature series sequential turbo technology. Vehicles fitted with the new engine will be distinguished by a single twin-exhaust configuration. Other derivatives retain the existing set-up, with a single exhaust on each side of the rear bumper.

UK customers will also have the option of specifying Jaguar Land Rover’s 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine from 2017 Model Year. The supercharged V6 achieves 340HP and 450Nm of torque combined with CO2 emissions of 243g/km. Effortless acceleration and power delivery produces a 0-60 time of 7.1s.

In addition to new engine technology, Land Rover introduces a series of semi-autonomous driving technologies to Range Rover Sport. Advanced Tow Assist, Blind Spot Assist and Intelligent Speed Limiter work alongside existing features to elevate driver aids to an even greater level of convenience and safety. The 2017 Model Year Range Rover Sport includes a selection of new features. Low Traction Launch is aimed to make it easier for drivers to pull away on low-grip surfaces while the updated 4x4i menu presents all the necessary vehicle information when tackling challenging terrain.

The enlarged dual-view touchscreen features a new 10-inch display for greater ease-of-use and clarity and features tablet-style pinch and zoom orientation. This is powered by Land Rover’s market-leading InControl Touch Pro technology, making this the most connected Range Rover Sport to date.

The list of exterior enhancements include a new Bright Pack which will be offered as an option on Autobiography Dynamic models on the 2017 Range Rover Sport. It brings a more vivid finish, with features such as Atlas Silver front grille mesh and Atlas Silver bonnet mesh. Customers will also be able to choose from an extended palette of colour options and finishes. 19 new premium colours have been introduced by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division for 2017 Model Year ranging from contemporary pearlescent whites to sophisticated greys in luxurious high-gloss and new satin finishes.
