Late last week, Land Rover announced the pricing and specifications for their long-awaited Range Rover Sport – a car that is due to hit Australian shores sometime in November. There has been some surprise over the cost of the new Sport range, which is aimed primarily at families, but the exceptional array of features is sure to offer an explanation why.

The line-up starts with the TDV6 SE at $102,800, which is powered by a 190kW/ 600Nm 3.0 litre turbo-diesel V6. The SDV6 SE, at $113,600, is exactly the same, except powered by a 215kW/ 600Nm version of the engine. The $125,800 SDV6 HSE offers much higher specifications whilst the $145,500 SDV6 Autobiography is known as being the flagship car.

The line-up then continues with the V6 SC HSE at $123,100. It’s powered by a 250kW/ 450Nm 3.0 litre supercharged petrol V6. The V8 SC HSE Dynamic or Autobiography Dynamic will set you back $161,600 or $182,400 respectively and are the top of the Range Rover Sport range. Each new Sport generation only features slight increases on Range Rover’s past models.

Whilst each car in the line-up will bring a number of cool specifications to the table, there are a number of big ticket items that can be purchased across the range to enhance the driving experience, such as: rear seat entertainment screens (at $5000), panoramic sunroof (at $4000), blind spot monitoring (at $1420), auto park assist (at $1490) and metallic paint (at $2100).

If you would prefer not to spend the extra cash, you can still enjoy features like 19-inch alloy wheels, keyless auto-entry and a centre console fridge.
