"We have given the Range Rover Sport a cleaner, more muscular appearance which is the perfect complement to its new range of high-performance engines. Striking new signature LED headlamps, a two-bar grille and a larger air intake create a bold new frontal graphic which helps to reinforce the vehicle's athletic stance." says Gerry McGovern, Design Director, Land Rover.
The new design theme for the 2010 Range Rover Sport emphasises its position as the most dynamic model in the Land Rover range, creating a sporting, cleaner and more sculpted appearance.
At the front, new signature LED headlamps provide a technical focal point and feature Range Rover inspired interlocking circle lamps. With a new two-bar grille and larger air intake, the vehicle's frontal graphic is much more slim, athletic and low-slung.
The new front bumper blends with redesigned front wings to form a simple, sculpted surface, offering improved aerodynamics and a lower, more sporting visual stance.
The side view of the Range Rover Sport features new, two-stripe LED indicators, along with redesigned two-section side vents. Colour-coded door mirrors complete the visual changes.
At the rear, the Range Rover inspired light clusters create a fresh new look, while the smooth and sculpted bumper design mirrors the style of the front end.
Premium Interior Environment
The interior of the 2010 Range Rover Sport has been comprehensively redesigned and features significantly improved standards of quality and craftsmanship that are truly worthy of the Range Rover brand.
The Range Rover Sport's cabin retains its popular, snug, cockpit feel but incorporates higher quality materials, sumptuous soft-touch finishes and superb detailing throughout. Leather is used extensively on major surfaces, in a wider choice of colours. To create a more sporting feel, rich dark shades 'sandwich' narrow sections in lighter tones and the effect is completed by a generous selection of stylish wood finishes.
To enhance the clean look of the interior, the facia now has 50 per cent fewer switches; the switches themselves are all chrome-plated.
There are new seats front and rear, featuring a deeper, more sculpted shape; electrically adjustable side bolsters are available for the first time.
New ambient lighting adds to the premium qualities of the cabin, with the introduction of white LEDs to cast subtle halos around the interior door handles and pockets, as well as on the facia and centre console area.Published 8 April 2009
