At the 2013 New York Auto Show today, the 2014 Range Rover Sport was debuted, and its myriad of features are enough to make anyone’s head spin. From top to bottom, inside and out, this vehicle is filled to the brim with luxury, sporty options and features. Prices start at $63,495 for the SE V6 model and increase steadily from there to $93,295 for the Sport Autobiography V8 model.
The 2014 Range Rover Sport will be available in four different models: the Sport SE, Sport HSE, Sport Supercharged, and the Sport Autobiography. Customers will be able to choose from 11 interior color themes (plus a seat color), three real wood veneers, 4 aluminum interior finishes, 19 exterior paint options, wheel size from 19-inches to 22-inches, 3 roof colors (Santorini Black, Indus Silver, and Corris Grey), 3 exterior accent finishes (Gloss Black, Dark Atlas, and Atlas Silver), as well as illuminated side sills.
As you can imagine, the 2014 Range Rover boasts a variety of safety features, all the following of which are available across all the models: Roll Stability Control, Dynamic Stability Control, Electronic Traction Control, Trailer Stability Assist, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, Gradient Release Control, Engine Drag Troque Control, Antilock Braking System, Emergency Brake Lights, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Corner Brake Control, Emergency Brake Assist, and Electronic Park Brake.
Moving on to technology, there’s a host of connectivity options, including a hands-free Bluetooth option that can be controlled via steering wheel controls and an 8-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth audio streaming for playing audio files over the sound system, voice control, and USB ports for use with audio devices/smartphones/flash drives. This accompanies the Meridian audio system, of which three options are available. The highest audio package is a 1700 watt system with 23 speakers and a subwoofer.
The audio will be extra enjoyable thanks to the low-noise design of the 2014 Range Rover Sport, which was specifically engineered to reduce road noises. While passengers will hear a “sporting engine note” under hard acceleration, there’s little noise at regular cruising speeds. Enhanced seats, a rear entertainment system, configurable mood lighting, keyless entry, a center console cooler, and a heated steering wheel/seats/windshield round out the biggest luxury and interior features.
The 2014 model is being hailed as the “fastest, most agile and responsive” of all Land Rovers, offering a new high-strength aluminum stucture that shaves 800 pounds off over the 2013 Sport model. Unlike the previous model, the 2014 offers a 5+2 third row option, intelligent start and stop technology for less emissions and better gas mileage, and two transfer case options: the single-speed Torsen and the two-speed locking low range option.
