he Engine & Chassis
The 2014 Range Rover Sport comes with five different engines. Four diesel engines; a 258 hp TDV6, a 292 hp TDV6, a 339 hp SDV8 and since this year, an SDV6 combined with a 35 kW electric engine producing 340 hp and 700 Nm. The only petrol engine Land Rover now offers is the Supercharged which has a 5.0 litre engine producing 510 hp.
Our review car was fitted with the entry level diesel engine, the TDV6. The TDV6 has a 3.0 litre V6 diesel engine producing 258 hp at 4,000 rpm and 600 Nm at 2,000 rpm. That is the same amount of torque as the SDV6 and just 25 Nm short of the V8 Supercharged petrol engine.
As previously mentioned, the new Range Rover Sport is 420 kgs lighter than the previous generation. That’s 39 percent lighter if you look at the vehicles platform in the round. How did they manage to shed off all that weight? Well, the new lightweight aluminium body structure employs a combination of pressed panels, plus cast, extruded and rolled aluminium alloy parts, so the strength is concentrated precisely where the loads are greatest. As for fuel consumption, Land Rover says that the new advanced intelligent Stop/Start system which is fitted on all 2014 models helps improve fuel consumption by up to 7 percent.
Fuel consumption is not the only thing that has been improved. The ability and driving dynamics are the biggest differences compared to the previous Sport. More about this in the ‘Driving Experience’ part.
The TDV6 diesel engine brings the 2,115 kg weight from 0-100 km/h in 7.6 seconds. The top speed is limited to 210 km/h. The fuel consumption is always a problem with these big and heavy cars but Land Rover claims a consumption of 8.3l/100 km in the city and 6.7/100 km on the highway, impressive figures indeed.
