Range Rover Sport 3.0 V6 Supercharged HSE Dynamic 2017 review
New 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine offers a cheaper petrol option to the Range Rover Sport lineup, but isn’t as likeable as the diesels
The Range Rover stable needed a supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine like Hannibal Lector needed a bit more menace. But, with an increasing trend away from diesel and towards petrol, this 335bhp motor (which undercuts the equivalent V6 diesel by £4300) may not be as surplus to requirements as it initially seems.It’s going into both the full-fat Range Rover and the Range Rover Sport, and we’re testing the latter here, in which model it is only available with mid-spec HSE Dynamic trim.Other updates for the 2017 model year includes the addition of the ‘InControl Touch Pro’ system, which is now in every Range Rover Sport model. This brings a bigger, 10in colour touchscreen and various clever nav functions including a ‘commute mode’ that learns your regular routes to work and advises which is best based on live traffic updates.
