An all-new model in 2006, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport receives some enhancements for 2007. Bluetooth hands-free phone capability is now standard; one-touch activation has been added to the front passenger window; the message centre now includes a clock; and wired headphones are included with the rear seat entertainment package. New options on the Supercharged model include LUX leather-trimmed seats, 20-inch “Stormer” wheels, and Lined Oak dark wood trim.
The Sport comes in two models: the HSE, with 4.4-litre V8, or the Supercharged (S/C), with supercharged 4.2-litre V8. Both use a six-speed automatic transmission and have permanent four-wheel drive. The S/C also includes a Dynamic Response suspension system, optional on the HSE; it’s a computer-controlled, active anti-roll system that contributes to flat cornering, and improved handling and control. Both models feature Terrain Response, with five driver-selectable settings: general driving, grass/gravel/snow, mud and ruts, sand, and rock crawl.
Features on the HSE include 19-inch alloy wheels, Hill Descent Control, four-wheel electronic traction control, six airbags, bi-Xenon headlamps, front and rear fog lamps, keyless entry, deep-tinted glass, Harman/Kardon Logic7 “surround sound” stereo, satellite DVD-based navigation system, eight-way power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated windshield and washer jets, heated front and rear seats, front and rear park distance control, sunroof, rear washer/wiper, heated mirrors, and programmable key fob that can control such functions as the air suspension.
The S/C adds 20-inch wheels, unique seating surfaces, chrome exhaust extensions, Dynamic Response, Brembo front brakes, adaptive front lighting, cooler box, 20-inch alloy wheels and black-on-silver badging.
Similar to the Range Rover, the Sport is faster, slightly smaller and lighter, but offers the same off-road ability and a high level of luxury. Despite its size, it’s extremely nimble, and the five Terrain Response settings make it easy to take it on a variety of adventures; even with its rugged capability, though, it’s smooth and comfortable enough to take on the highway all day long.
