Technical Specifications and Test Drive
All engines in Range Rover Sport are coupled with an 8-speed Automatic Transmission which ensures fuel efficiency apart from the Eco Mode. The 3.0 l V6 Turbocharged Diesel provides 190 kW and an impressive 600 Nm of torque, for smooth, progressive performance. What we tried and felt was a great add on were the different modes. The sport featured Descent mode, which was spot on, we could let it free in the hill descent with a very good control. During the off roading, drifting and even in the city drive it outperformed our expectation.
