Land Rover first introduced its Range Rover Sport in 2005 and subsequent, the model was redesigned in 2009. The model pooled the superior luxuries usually found in the Range Rover(since 1970) product with athletic driving features. The existing Range Rover Sport was redesigned in 2013, making a new age of wide-ranging aluminum under the novel Jaguar Land Rover cooperation. Now Land Rover is going to release the redesigned version of the most popular sport utility vehicle from GB for the model year 2018 with the name, 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport.
2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Exterior
This time, the 2018 Range Rover Sport should not experience much change in its external design, except some minor tweaks in its front part. The lower part of the headlamps comes equipped with bigger side air intakes, perpendicular illumination pronunciations at its corners. The front part comes equipped with a reasonably big center grille to feed the radiator, whereas its upper part functions as a design characteristic.

The side parts of the vehicle are almost similar to the existing model, However, there may be some slight modifications. Such as body-line pronunciations or new trim elements, but the overall shape will remain unchanged.
Around rear, the double exhaust tips, artificial slide plate, and sloping back window are identical to those of the current version. Still, it is expected that the taillights would get a new design.
New Land Rover Range Rover Sport 2018 Interior
Similar to the exterior, the interior of the 2018 Range Rover Sport would get a moderate update. The notable change in the cabin of the new SUV is the much bigger user-friendly infotainment display, replacing the eight-inch display in the existing model. Except the size of the display, the interior design remains unchanged.
Land Rover has not yet revealed anything about the engine options of its 2018 model Range Rover Sport. Nevertheless, it is expected that the new SUV would come equip with the same Td6 turbodiesel unit with the displacement of 3.0 liters and a V6 supercharged petrol unit with the capacity of 3.0 liters, found in the current model. Both powertrains will be finely tuned to offer the new SUV more power and torque outputs when compared to those of the current model.
