2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Coupe – Land Rover is about to emulate BMW’s niche market with the introduction of a new sloping roof-top SUV called the “Range Rover Sport Coupe”. Land Rover already has the Range Rover Evoque coupe in its lineup, but as confirmed by our latest British automaker plans to add a second coupe-like SUV.Code-styled L560, the vehicle seems to be even more road-oriented than the Range Rover Sport already decidedly urban.
At first glance, this Range Rover looks like nothing more than a refresh in the works. It is when the vehicle is seen from the rear that the cut type changes are obvious. Discover this sloping rear window. The test engineers did a good job in disguising this mule from prying eyes. At low altitude, it seems that the engineers simply stopped on the lower part of the rear bumper, leaving only the trailer hitch behind. We can also see two exhaust pipes protruding from two mufflers on each side of the hitch. It’s also clear that this test mule uses an independent rear suspension system, but that’s not a surprise. Through heavy camouflage, we can see the front has a new shape. The lower fascia has a massive grille with two smaller air intakes similar to the current Range Rover Sport. Of course, all this could be a company made by test engineers to discourage us. However, we bet that the Range Rover Sport will soon receive a refreshed face. The coupe version will surely share aspects of the new look. Always expect the coupe to have its own style clues.
Our photographer could not take a picture of the inside of the Range Rover, although it is probably heavily padded in thick, protective covers. Nevertheless, expect the Range Rover Sport Coupé to share a very similar interior with the standard Sport RR. This means that the wide and thin instrument panel with its sloped side and large central column will be present. Expect the same four-spoke steering wheel with its multitude of buttons. Perhaps Range Rover will empty the analog gauges available in the Sport Basic model for the all-digital cluster found in the intermediate and upper trim levels. However, we expect this model to come with JLR’s latest infotainment system, replacing the one currently found in the Range Rover Sport. Designers can distinguish the Range Rover Sport Coupé with unique seating or color combinations. leather. Maybe this SUV will meet the “individual luxury” crowd by having four bucket seats with a full center console going down to the center. Regardless of what Range Rover does with the interior, do not rely on this SUV that comes with a third-row seat.
Most Range Rover Sport models will be equipped with the Land Rover’s 3.0-liter, 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 (332 lb-ft) or its 5.0-liter supercharged V8, the latter of which can go as far as 518 HP (starting at 510) and peak torque set at 461 lb-ft. The Land Rover’s optional V6 Td6 diesel powertrain is back, offering 254 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, 28 miles per gallon of highway fuel economy and 658 miles per tank.
Expect Range Rover to follow this price guide, although we suspect the price gap will follow BMW’s strategy. Expect the Range Rover Sport Coupé to start at $ 78,000, just enough to separate it from the $ 65,000 standard Range Rover Sport start price. This coupe version will probably debut in 2017 as a 2018 model.
