2016 Range Rover Sport HST adds 40HP to the V6 along with other updates for all Sports

My bullet points from this 2016 update – official PR follows below:

  • I wonder if this HP bump is a precursor for more plans to increase non-V8 performance?
  • 2016 Range Rover Sport getting the Gesture Tailgate just like the 2016 Range Rover Evoque, waving a foot under the bumper opens tailgate, not new but new to Land Rover.
  • 3.0 liter Td6 with 254HP, 440lb-ft of torque getting 24 MPG, US market
  • Noble-plated paddle shift gear levers included, usually a pricey upgrade
  • A new Carbon Fibre Pack is available, which includes side vents, tailgate trim, door mirror covers, a front grille surround, fog lamp bezels and bonnet vents finished in high-gloss lacquer.
  • Finally something that’s been asked about for years: New Auto Access Height is introduced as standard, for improved ease of entry and exit. The system automatically lowers the vehicle to access height when it comes to a halt and a door is opened.
