New HST version mixes 394 bhp and improved economy. but everything's relative.

.

These performance-boosting technologies work alongside a new Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain that is underpinned by the new engine, bringing enhanced efficiency to the range with fuel economy of 9.3 litre/100km.

That's the idea behind the Range Rover Sport HST. Land Rover has fitted an "electric supercharger" system, using the electrical power to spool up the turbocharger more quickly and reducing the "lag" usually associated with turbocharged engines.

In total, the system produces 394 bhp, allowing the big 4x4 to sprint from 0-60 miles per hour in less than six seconds and hit a top speed of 140 miles per hour.

Unlike the inline-4, the new inline-6 features a 48-volt electrical system that gathers energy during braking. The 48-volt electrical system also helps power the automatic stop/start system. And that's despite the V6 having less power.

Nick Rogers, executive director of product engineering at Jaguar Land Rover, said the new engine would also be more refined than the old V6 thanks to its in-line layout. "This second wave of engines, with a Mild Hybrid 48V system and performance-boosting technologies, is engineered to be cleaner and more efficient than ever before".

It will made at JLR's Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton. In the United Kingdom, the Range Rover Sport HST is priced a few thousand pounds under the Autobiography Dynamic trim.

Range Rover Sport HST buyers get bespoke badging on the auto and carbon fiber trim on the bonnet, front grille, side vents, and tailgate. The SUV, in fact, has been introduced with a new 400bhp, in-line six cylinder 3-litre petrol engine.

Distinguishing features on the HST grade include unique badging, carbon-fibre trim on the bonnet, grille, side vents and tailgate, along with red brake calipers - though anodised grey is optionally available. Two alloy wheel designs are on offer, and buyers can choose from five different paint colors - black, white, silver, red or gray.

Inside, you'll find 16-way electrically adjustable front seats with an updated colour pattern, along with suede-cloth detailing on the steering wheel and gear lever.
