The Range Rover Sport has become more accessible with new, 2.0L petrol engine derivatives priced from INR 86.71 lakh*. Last month, the executive SUV was priced from INR 1.04 crore*.
The Range Rover Sport’s new 2.0L petrol engine is a Si4 turbocharged four-cylinder unit from the Ingenium family. It produces 221 kW (300 PS) at 5,500 rpm and 400 Nm of torque at 1,500-4,000 rpm. An 8-speed automatic transmission is standard. An AWD system is standard, too. It comes with a single speed transfer box; a two-speed box isn’t available as an option or even as a part of a package.
The Range Rover Sport 2.0L petrol can accelerate from nought to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds. Its top speed is 201 km/h. The smaller capacity engine can be had in all three equipment lines offered in India: S, SE and HSE. The 3.0L TDV6 diesel (258 PS/600 Nm), 4.4L SDV8 diesel (340 PS/740 Nm) and 5.0L V8 Supercharged petrol (575 PS/700 Nm) engines are still available. The 3.0L V6 Supercharged petrol engine (340 PS/450 Nm) is no longer included in the spec sheet, which could mean that it has been discontinued.
All the engines of the Range Rover Sport are equipped with Stop/Start technology and regenerative charging for enhanced fuel economy.
“The success of the Range Rover Sport has been integral in driving demand for the Land Rover portfolio in India. The Model Year 2019 2.0 l petrol derivative should further increase the aspirational value of the flagship model at an attractive and exciting price,” Rohit Suri, President & Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India, commented on the latest launch.
