Cars   The introduction of an all-new 400PS in-line six-cylinder 3.0-litre petrol engin

Performance-boosting technologies work alongside a new MHEV powertrain underpinned by an all-new 400PS in-line six-cylinder 3.0-litre petrol engine in Range Rover Sport HST.


Range Rover Sport HSTThe Range Rover Sport effortlessly combines dynamic on-road handling, luxurious refinement and trademark Land Rover all-terrain capability. The introduction of an all-new 400PS in-line six-cylinder 3.0-litre petrol engine enhances performance, refinement and responses along with improved fuel economy. Available initially on the special edition HST model, the all-new 400PS Ingenium engine is more responsive and better balanced than the previous V6 petrol.

Range Rover Sport HSTWith 550Nm of torque, it powers the Range Rover Sport from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 6.2 seconds (0-60mph in 5.9 seconds) and to a top speed of 225km/h (140mph). The smooth and responsive new six-cylinder unit has an innovative combination of advanced features, including the introduction of an electric supercharger to deliver immediate power response. Able to spool fully in just 0.5 seconds at up to 65,000rpm to maximium boost pressure, the new technology virtually eliminates turbo lag.

Range Rover Sport HSTSupported by a twin-scroll turbocharger and Continuous Variable Valve Lift, which boost power and help the engine breathe with maximum efficiency, the design of the all-new six-cylinder engine optimises performance and fuel economy as well as reducing emissions – all with customary Range Rover poise and refinement. The clever set-up is based around an all-new Start-Stop system that switches off when stationary and pairs the new 3.0-litre engine with an electric motor. This allows the system to harvest energy whilst the vehicle is decelerating and store it in a 48V battery.

Range Rover Sport HSTThis energy can then be re-deployed through torque-assist, reducing C02 emissions by reducing the work load on the engine. Range Rover Sport’s new 400PS petrol engine will be available on the special edition HST model, which features a unique combination of interior and exterior updates including bespoke badging and carbon fibre trim on the bonnet, front grille, side vents and tailgate. In addition, the suite of safety enhancements includes Advanced Cruise Control alongside High Speed Emergency Braking.
