Range Rover Sport Wins Performance Luxury SUV
When picking a winning performance luxury SUV, we had to look first at the power delivery of each and every new SUV launched in Malaysia this past 12 months and the new 510PS 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine in the 2nd generation Range Rover Sport presented us with supercar like performance in a luxurious cabin environment. With huge reserves of power and torque, the scale of the performance on offer is reflected in the 0-100km/h time of sub-5.0 seconds (0.9 seconds faster than the outgoing model) achieved with a rich sporting soundtrack generated by a carefully tuned exhaust system and sound symposer on the intake system.
The Land Rover company also gave their luxury 4×4 SUV a bold and progressive exterior design which was a better offering over the rest. With a fresh interpretation of the current model’s strong design DNA, this new vehicle has a sleek and contemporary appearance, with its sloping roofline offering a distinctive sporting character.
Inside the cabin of this new Range Rover Sport is crafted using the highest quality materials. Material quality has been raised to a new level, with more luxurious soft-touch surfaces in key touch points around the cabin, such as the fascia mid-section. The use of more technical finishes and veneers gives the cabin a more dynamic and contemporary feel.
Luxurious soft-touch surfaces are offset by authentic metal details which are cool to the touch and stunning to look at. These include the striking satin chrome pillars each side of the centre stack with an immaculate noble plated finish, and the choice of distinctive aluminium finish on the centre console, fascia ends and door trims. At the end there was little else to say but here is the winning performance luxury SUV.
