Land Rover has finally unveiled the latest Range Rover Sport ahead of its debut at the New York Auto Show this weekend.
Wired.co.uk reports that the latest addition to the family is greener and lighter than its predecessors. James Bond star Daniel Craig drove the car into the event, reminding everyone that the Range Rover Sport is a car of luxury, at the top end of its market.
The all-aluminium bodywork is what makes the car 30 per cent lighter, claims Land Rover. It is also considerably bigger at 485cm long. The Sport is due to be available with five different engine types, which include a diesel hybrid set to be released next year. There are also talks that a four-cylinder diesel version could be an option at some point in the future, according to telegraph.co.uk.
The Range Rover Sport comes complete with Wade Sensing technology that allows the car to feed back the depth information when it's being driven through water. It also has a new camera system that includes Traffic Sign Recognition.
With such a high-specification car, would-be purchasers may be wise to invest in a car tracker in the unfortunate event that the car goes missing or is stolen.
Seating capacity will have the option to be increased from five to seven, and there is more leg room in the cabin than previous versions.
