Land Rover applies a comprehensive 10MY makeover to its still-popular Rangie Sport
11 Feb 2010
FIVE years ago, Land Rover finally caught on to the fact that its Range Rover was not just the premium model in its line-up but also a brand in its own right. So in 2005 it created the Range Rover Sport, a separate second-tier Range Rover model. The Sport has iconic Range Rover design cues but is based on Discovery 3 architecture and mechanicals, has a leaner look than its Vogue sibling and is much cheaper. Now it has been given a refresh for the 2010 model year, with the centrepiece of the update being a stunning new turbo-diesel V6.

THE Range Rover Sport TDV6 was introduced at the same time as the Discovery 3, and shared underpinnings and powertrains with the Discovery. The Sport TDV6 was the entry-level model to the three-tier Sport range and was powered by a Jaguar-derived 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel powerplant that developed 140kW of power at 4000rpm and 440Nm of torque at 1900rpm that was linked to a six-speed auto transmission and a permanent four-wheel drive system.
