Hear you all Land Rover fanatics and interest buyers of full-size luxury crossovers and SUVs! This fall the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport model will come into dealerships under the codename Td6. While it may not fall in the fourth place among the fleet of high-end SUVs against the two Mercedes Benz (the GL and G classes) and its own sibling the Land Rover Range Rover, it is still one of the hottest deals in its section.
Despite the sporty label it comes with, Land Rover adamantly retains its evocative leather and glossy wood furnish, off-road prowess, a high/low-range transfer case and standard air suspension. Including in the 2016 update is the ATPC (All-Terrain Progress Control) system that enables the Rover to crawl even smooth and slippery surfaces even without the help of the driver, though slow speed should be maintained. To top it, the brand added remote connectivity through smartphone devices to the InControl System and a hands-free tailgate.
Also, Land Rover offers Td6 in two major trims: the SE (turbocharged V6) and the HSE (5.0L supercharged V8). Speedsters will be glad to know that the HSE trim brings about a monstrous power of 510hp. You will like the calm and stately cabin while revving up on the streets and highways.
With all the very cool qualities of Rover Sport, one should always keep in mind the equally handsome price it comes with.
