AutoExpress photographers have succeeded this week to take a shot of the new Range Rover Sport’s interior. In the image, the center-console, switchgear, steering wheel and central touch screen is clearly visible.
It looks like the navigation screen is larger and positioned lower – in line with the steering wheel. An updated terrain-response dial sits behind a more futuristic-looking joystick-style gear selector.
The British magazine claims the upcoming Range Rover will have a long wheel base variant, which will go on sale one year after the launch of the regular model, targeting customers in China who often prefer to sit up back and let someone else do the driving.
As previously reported, the new British luxo-utes will be lighter thanks to generous use of aluminum.
The new Range Rover will be powered by refined version of the current powerplants, including V6 and V8 diesels, and a petrol powered V8 in both naturally aspirated and supercharged formats connected to Land Rover’s eight-speed automatic transmission.
As expected an hybrid Range Rover will be available, most probably based on the Range-E Concept.
The Range Rover will be revealed towards the end of the summer, so expect the Sport to follow closer to the end of the year.
