Range Rover Sport details announced

Details of the new Range Rover Sport have been announced, with the range now including an optional third row of seats for occasional use.

The new, longer model is equipped with more features than its predecessor as it attempts to lay claim to being the best luxury sports SUV on the market.

Leather seats come as standard across the range with heating for the front two, while other features packed in with the entry-level SE model include automatic windscreen wipers and headlights, DAB digital radio and dual-zone climate control.

A step up from that is the HSE, which offers bigger 20-inch alloy wheels, electrically adjustable seats upholstered with perforated leather, heated rear seats, a heated windscreen and rear-view camera.

Moving up again is the HSE Dynamic, which sports 21-inch alloys, a gloss black grille and stainless steel pedals among several other enhancements.

Motorists wanting to think about pricing before getting on to the stage of sourcing a car insurance quote should note that prices for the entry-level SE start at £51,000, while the HSE starts from £59,995 and the HSE Dynamic comes in at £64,995.

Top of the range is the Autobiography Dynamic and that offers a raft of added features, such as High Beam Assist for the headlights, changeable interior mood lighting, a Meridian Surround Sound audio system and adaptive cruise control.

The Autobiography Dynamic also incorporates safety features, including emergency braking and active front seatbelts in standard fit.
