These airbags are complimented by a rear cross traffic alert and forward-collision alert for added safety. Anti-lock brakes and traction control comes standard. The vehicle is ideal for women who are not confident with their parking skills because the 2014 model is equipped with a surround-view camera and allows the driver to have a top-down view to negotiate narrow parking spaces.

Other Special Features
Range Rover is world-renowned for its ability to tackle difficult terrain. But with the 2014 model, engineers made improvements on its Terrain Response 2 Traction management system to enable intelligent all terrain performance. The vehicle’s all-wheel drive system analyzes the terrain up ahead and makes a decision which traction setting is appropriate, whether it is grass, gravel, snow, mud, sand, or rock crawl. In addition, this vehicle is equipped with state-of-the-art air suspension system that enables the driver to select four different ride heights.
The cutting-edge technology of the Range Rover Sport 2014, unique features and passion for excellence resulted in the incorporation of a voice activated navigation system with an eight-inch touchscreen as well as the decision to use an all-aluminum unitized body construction. The all-aluminum shell means that this model is 800 pounds lighter. The reduced weight is significant considering that the SUV retains the use of a powerful 340-horsepower supercharged V6, with standard full-time 4-wheel time transmission. The Sport version will accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 6.9 seconds. Now, you know why this vehicle is one of the most popular SUVs in the market today.
