2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Td6 Review – Keeps on Shining



The 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Td6 is a variant of Land Rover’s long running Range Rover line. As the generations came and went, the Range Rover has gotten big and with today’s fuel prices, diesel seems to be a viable option given the large Range Rover weighs in at a very hefty 5335 pounds. Despite some lingering thought that this rover might possess some reliability issues, it still is a very good luxury SUV despite the luxury and initial cost of owning the Range Rover, it’s actually a very frugal turbo diesel with decent power delivery.

The 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Td6 Presents Itself as a Smooth and Silky Luxury SUV

On the outside, the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Td6 has clearly grown from compact SUV to full sized SUV. Since the introduction of the modern Range Rover, the current generation rover carries the same design cues as the last generation with a few touches of modernity like LED DRL and subtle sleek lines especially on the front. At the side, the classic Rover silhouette is ever present and fits the vehicle nicely. Under the hood is a diesel-sipping 3 Liter turbocharged V6 that churns out 254 horses with a tugboat torque output of 440lb-ft at a very accessible 1750rpm, that’s instant pulling power. The powertrain finished off with a 8 speed auto with manual shift ability and four wheel drive.

On the inside, the 2016 Range Rover Sport Td6 falls under the luxury SUV category and the interior looks, and feels premium and classy. The moment you step inside the cabin especially if the Rover freshly rolled out the assembly line, you’ll immediately notice that what you’re in a luxury vehicle as everything looks, smells, and even feels rich; down to every last tailored corner.

While the diesel option lacks horses but ups the torque, the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Td6 does bolt quickly responsively but lacks the horsepower to do quick sprints with a 0-60 time of 7.6 seconds and a quarter mile time of 15.9, it’s not a quick car but hey, it’s 5335 pounds and has the capability to pull 7716 pounds. Where the Range Rover shines is in the smooth drive it delivers, it is supremely stable and confident with the diesel quietly purring away in the background as you cruise on long country roads.
