The second-generation Range Rover Sport was announced on 27 March 2013 at the New York Auto Show. The new version continued in the design direction that produced the Range Rover Evoque styling and the bigger Range Rover. It was 4 inches (100 mm) longer and 400 lb (181 kg) lighter. Unlike the previous generation that used an integrated body frame chassis, the new Sport utilized an all-aluminium monocoque body, just like its bigger brother. Land Rover revised the Range Rover Sport for the 2016 model year, with improvements to the 3.0 SDV6 engine giving it more power and torque, lower CO2 emissions and enhanced fuel economy. The twin-turbocharged diesel engine puts out an extra 14bhp and 74lb ft of torque. The eight-speed auto box does a good job of keeping the engine in that ideal rev range, so it’s rare not to get an instant response when you accelerate. The cabin was as you’d expect, all leather seats, suede headlining and turned aluminium detailing and you got to enjoy it free of almost any vibration or road and wind noise.
