Range Rover Sport Gets A Few Enhancements For 2019

The Range Rover Sport is Jaguar Land Rover top-selling model in the United ‘ trying to muscle in on Australia’s police-car market.

Details given. Prior information available.

It’s been four years now since Land Rover rolled out the current, second-generation Range Rover Sport, and in that time, the market for mid-size luxury SUVs has grown considerably. So now, JLR is keeping its entry up to date by rolling out a series of upgrades.

With 249 metric horsepower (183 kW), it’s 9 PS more powerful and 100 Nm (74 lb-ft) torquier than the existing option, cutting 0.8 seconds off the 0-60 time, now down to 7.6 seconds (or 7.9 to 100 km/h).

Along with the new engine option, the Range Rover Sport gets a new Adaptive Cruise Control system with Steering Assist that keeps the vehicle in its lane by following the markers in the road and the vehicle in front. High-speed emergency braking is also available, as is a Predictive Energy Optimization system that (for the first time in China) maps out the most efficient route on the navigation system.

Range Rover is introducing Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist for the updated model, with Stop and Go functionality that brings the vehicle to a stop and proceeds off again during traffic conditions, automatically. The steering assist system is able to apply moderate steering effort to help keep the SUV centred in the lane as well.

Further on.

High-speed emergency braking is also available with adaptive cruise control, helping to reduce the risk of a forward collision by automatically applying the brakes in emergencies. Nick Collins, vehicle line director at Jaguar Land Rover, said:

Well, then why is it that so many people (from internet trolls to automotive writers, if there’s really much of a gap between those two breeds) just love to pile on the new coupe utility segment and eviscerate them because ‘they’re ugly’ or because ‘it’s everything wrong with the automotive industry these days?’
Well, they’re wrong (OK, maybe not about the ugly part). It’s actually everything right with the automotive industry these days. An automotive company’s mission isn’t to make you buy what the informed minority deem acceptable or superior, it’s to make a profit selling cars
