2010 Range Rover Sport Details and Photos

British manufacturer released today full details of the 2010 model year Range Rover Sport, ahead of the 2009 New York Auto Show. Along with visual alterations, the new Range Rover comes equipped with two additional two new engines, the LR-TDV6 diesel and LR-V8 5.0l supercharged. The existing LR-TDV8 diesel engine will continue to equip the Rover, and it too benefits from upgrades.

The 3.0l LR-TDV6 twin turbo engine features a parallel sequential turbocharging system, allowing it to deliver 245 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque. Compared with the 2.7l diesel it replaces, the 3.0l unit provides 29 percent more power and 36 percent more torque, while at the same time reducing CO2 emissions by 8.3 percent (as estimated by the manufacturer) to 243 g of CO2/km. Fuel consumption is rated at 30.7 mpg (9.2 l/100 km)

The 5.0l LR-V8, designed by Jaguar Land Rover powertrain team and fitted with a twin vortex (TVS) supercharger, produces 510 horsepower and 625 Nm of torque. Compared with the unit it replaces, fuel consumption has been reduced by 6.2 percent, now standing at 8.9 mpg (15 l/100 km). CO 2 emissions rate (tree huggers look away) stands at 353g/km.

Visually, the 2010 Range Rover Sport features, at the front, a new bumper, new signature LED headlamps, a new two-bar grille and a larger air intake. From the side, two-stripe LED indicators, along with redesigned two-section side vents stand out, while at the back the Rover features a new bumper and light clusters.

The interior provides now better quality materials, including leather in a wide range of colors. White LEDs cast halos around the interior door handles and pockets, as well as on the fascia and centre console area.
