2012 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Overview
Built with plenty of power tucked under a sleek exterior and luxurious interior, the 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SUV can handle any situation.
New additions for 2012 Range Rover Sport include a hard drive for music storage, more speakers for the audio systems, enhanced iPod connectivity, Bluetooth® streaming audio, voice activation for the navigation system, and a power liftgate with various opening heights. A new Dark Finish grille finish, gloss black fender vent surround, and body-colored door handles add to the Sport’s sleek look. The Range Rover Sport is available in HSE, HSE LUX, Supercharged, Autobiography, and Limited Edition trims. It is the less expensive, slightly smaller sibling of the Range Rover.
Though smaller, under the hood, the 2012 Sport is just as powerful as the Range Rover and features the same pair of powerful V-8 engines. First is a naturally aspirated 375-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 that produces 375 pounds-feet of torque and second is a giant 510-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, which generates 461 pounds-feet of torque. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with full time intelligent all-wheel drive. CommandShift allows the driver to make manual sequential changes and even shift into Sport mode for more nimble handling.
The five-inch virtual instrument panel uses Thin Film Transistor technology to display key information to the driver, like air suspension height settings, Hill Descent Control, Adaptive Cruise Control, Terrain Response feedback, and other driving settings. The 2012 Range Rover Sport seats five and is adorned with faux metal pieces, while real wood trim is available. Heated leather seats, power-adjustable side bolsters for the front seats, Alcantara rear-seat inserts, heated rear seats, a cooled box for drinks, a rear-seat entertainment system, and a 17-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system are optional, while push button start, mood lighting, sunroof, and touch screen navigation system are standard.
When it comes to safety, the 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Sport incorporates several standard features including antilock brakes, front and rear parking sensors, side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags, and an electronic stability system with rollover mitigation technology. Adaptive headlights swivel to illuminate turns and an available Vision Assist Package features a surround camera system giving the driver a 360-degree view around the Range Rover Sport.
Combine extreme off-roading capability with enough sophistication to turn heads anywhere in the 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Sport.
