2018 Porsche Cayenne Vs 2018 Range Rover Sport
Cayenne Inside, the Cayenne uses a dashboard that's similar to the one found in the Panamera. There's a large centre console as before, although it's far tidier thanks to the 12.3-inch touchscreen system now used. Like the Q7 and Bentayga, the Cayenne gets access to 48-volt electrics, and this means Porsche is able to offer an active anti-roll bar set-up on the options list to Boost the Cayenne's handling. There will only be two versions of Cayenne at launch, the Cayenne and Cayenne S. The first uses a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol that makes 335bhp and 450Nm of torque. This is enough to take the car from 0-62mph in 6.2 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 152mph. The Cayenne S gets a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 with 434bhp and 550Nm. This model can manage 0-62mph in 5.2 seconds (or 4.9 seconds if you add the Porsche Sport Chrono option with launch control) and a 165mph top speed. In time Porsche will launch faster GTS, turbo and turbo S petrol models, and the plug-in e-hybrid will also make an appearance. But while the Cayenne is designed to take a diesel engine, plans for a Cayenne Diesel have yet to be confirmed. You can order a new Cayenne now, although deliveries won't commence until April. The standard Cayenne costs £55,965 before options, while the Cayenne S starts from £68,330. This is a small increase over the outgoing Mk2, although as usual Porsche will offer a wide range of options that will bump up the price significantly. Range Rover Sport Jaguar Land Rover has released the first details and accompanying images of the 2018MY Range Rover Sport. The new range includes not only a revamped SVR model with more power, but also JLR’s first plug-in hybrid model, the Range Rover Sport P400e. Given JLR’s stated ambition with regards to electrification, the P400e is clearly an important step for the firm. It’s powered by a longitudinally mounted 2-litre Ingenium turbocharged petrol engine combined with a 85kW electric motor. The combustion engine is good for 296bhp alone, and the total system outputs are 399bhp and 472lb ft of torque. Predictably emissions and economy figures are impressive, at least using the official method of measurement, standing at 64g/km and 101mpg. The P400e’s 13kwh lithium-ion battery, mounted under the boot floor, is enough to provide a 31-mile electric-only range. There are two driving modes: a default Parallel Hybrid setting that best combines the two power sources, and an all-electric EV mode. In addition, the driver can choose a SAVE setting, which prevents the battery charge level falling below a set point, and a Predictive Energy Optimisation function, where GPS altitude data optimises the power source usage by taking into account the gradient of the road. The vehicle’s battery can be completely charged in two-and three-quarter hours using a 32amp rapid charger, or a rather more leisurely seven-and-a-half hours using the standard 10amp charging cable. Predictably, the P400e is also the heaviest Sport in the range at 2471kg, compared to 2083kg for a Sport powered solely by the new 296bhp Ingenium petrol engine. However, it is only slightly heavier than the TDV8 variant, which weighs a chunky 2443kg according to JLR’s scales. The P400e replaces the old SDV6 hybrid diesel model, and the new range also includes a revised 5-litre supercharged V8 petrol variant with peak power up from 503bhp to 518bhp. Gearboxes are once again eight-speed automatics, but there’s a new transfer case for the all-wheel drive system with a so-called ‘smart actuator’ rather than the old separate motor and ecu. As for the SVR, that’s now powered by a 567bhp version of the venerable supercharged V8 (up from 543bhp), enabling a 0-60mph time of just 4.3sec and a top speed of 176mph. The plug in hybrid model is incidentally no slouch either, hitting 60mph from rest in 6.3sec and offering a 137mph top speed. If you’re down for the Sport’s cause but don’t require the SVR’s neck-snapping wooliness, the V-6 SE starts at $67,745, while the diesel SE Td6 adds two grand to that. HSE models will run you $73,345 for the 340-horse V-6 and $75,345 for the diesel, while eight-cylinder power is within your reach at $83,045. HSE Dynamic models are gasoline only, with the 380-hp six coming in at $83,145 and the V-8 at $86,545. And, of course, for the sybarites, there’s really only one option: the $97,045, V-8–only Autobiography. interior New 2017 Test Drive Features Review Read More http://www.evo.co.uk/land-rover/range-rover-sport/20109/new-2018-range-rove r-sport-revealed-with-plug-in-hybrid-and "SUBSCRIBE NOW"
