Range Rover Sport Supercharged
Performance SUVs such as the 2020 Range Rover Sport Supercharged rent Dubai have evolved from lumbering boxes with tuned-up engines to legitimate athletes with handling to match their outrageous powertrains. This niche of the SUV marketplace frequently entices buyers with more than 500 horsepower, room for both passengers and cargo, and track-ready chassis dynamics. The Range Rover Sport Supercharged certainly offers such amenities plus the prestige of the Range Rover name, aggressive exterior styling, and a comfortable cabin. Rivals from BMW, Mercedes-AMG, and Porsche are out for your six-figure spending as well, but those sport-utes don’t offer the legendary off-road capability of the Land Rover.
With sportier design cues and a powerful, muscular stance, Range Rover Sport Supercharged rent Dubai, is designed for impact. Cleaner, more dynamic, there’s a contemporary feel everywhere you look—from the Range Rover Sport grille, redesigned bonnet vents to the refined, yet sporty wheel options.
A range of potent powertrains deliver breathtaking on-road performance. The 5.0 litre V8 Supercharged Petrol engine offers an improved output of 525PS and the combination of an advanced Ingenium petrol engine.
Touch Pro Duo in-car infotainment system beautifully integrates two 10 high-definition Touchscreens. Use Touch Pro Duo together with the full-colour Head-up Display and Interactive Driver Display to simultaneously view and interact with multiple features at once. Range Rover Sport rent Dubai is designed to command attention. Its lower, sportier stance is enhanced by the refreshed front and rear bumpers with integrated exhaust finishers and a dramatic, modern feel is completed by the wrap-around LED lights with optional sweeping Animated Directional Indicators. Supremely comfortable. Exceptionally functional. The clean, modern design of the interior space is complemented by enhanced Ambient Interior Lighting and the fitment of Touch Pro Duo.
A new range-topping SVR Carbon Edition model joins the lineup for 2021. It doesn’t offer any additional performance upgrades but instead focuses on a more sinister appearance thanks to exposed carbon fiber on the hood, front bumper, and grille. More carbon fiber trim can be found inside the Carbon Edition’s cabin and under the hood; 22-inch gloss-black aluminum wheels are also included. The extra horsepower that’s offered on the top-of-the-line SVR trim is nice, but in our opinion it’s not quite worth the extra expense. Go with the Dynamic trim and use that savings to add some cool options—or save it for your fuel bill. There’s still a lot to love with this “base” model, including 21-inch wheels, a power sunroof, a 13-speaker Meridian sound system, 16-way power-adjustable heated front seats, leather upholstery, blind-spot monitoring, and a 360-degree exterior camera system.
The supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine under the hood is what separates Supercharged and SVR models from more run-of-the-mill Land Rover Range Rover Sports. Simply put: It’s a beast. Making 518 horsepower in “regular” Supercharged models and 575 in the tuned-up SVR trim, the supercharged V-8 that powers these models is smooth, guttural, and eye-wateringly quick. Paired exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, this setup readily and easily blasts past legal speed limits. True to its off-road heritage, the Range Rover Sport Supercharged features an all-wheel-drive system with six selectable drive modes. Auto mode will suffice most of the time, while Dynamic dials in sportier settings for the engine and transmission. If the mood strikes you to take this nearly $100,000 SUV off the beaten path, there are modes for snow, mud, sand, and rock crawling. The Sport Supercharged grips the road tightly when cornering. The steering in our test car was well weighted (perhaps a little too heavy for soccer-drop-off duty, but perfect for back roads) and accurate. The Sport’s tall body leans perceptibly in tight corners and sweeping curves—as you might expect in a top-heavy SUV—but it never loses its composure. The Range Rover Sport Supercharged’s maximum towing capacity is a stout 7716 pounds.
The Range Rover Sport Supercharged comes standard with sumptuous leather interior trimmings and can have 20-way adjustable, massaging front seats and four-zone automatic climate control. The Autobiography model we tested, with its top-of-the-line, super-luxe interior treatment, had attractive aluminum trim and plenty of baubles. However, it failed to feel significantly more expensive or comfortable than the interior of any other Land Rover we’ve driven. Driver and front passenger enjoy acres of space to spread out in the Range Rover Sport, and second-row passengers will be comfortable even if they have slightly less space than those in the second row of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. The optional third row should not be considered a realistic solution for families who frequently need to seat more than five. The Range Rover Sport Supercharged has less cargo space than many competitors, but it still offers enough storage for most every-day use. Cabin cubbies are ample, especially in the front row. In our testing, the Range Rover Sport held fewer carry-on suitcases than its key rivals, but the nine we fit behind the second row of seating (our test vehicle was not equipped with the optional third row) should be enough for most families.
The Range Rover Sport Supercharged and the SVR both come standard with Land Rover’s InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, which offers both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration as standard. The dual-screen setup looks great, impresses with its crisp graphics, and comes standard with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. The lower screen handles vehicle functions such as climate control and drive-mode settings, while the upper one provides access to music, navigation, and communication. As much as we like the way it looks, however, it proved problematic both from a stability and usability standpoint in our long-term Range Rover Velar.
The Sport Supercharged models offer a useful array of driver-assistance technologies, but lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control are all optional. For drivers who prioritize those features, the cost is reasonable (at least in comparison with the already hefty base price).

Key safety features include:
