2021 Range Rover Sport SVR: what’s new?
On the exterior, the Range Rover Sport SVR gets a new front bumper with larger air intakes that are designed to improve brake cooling. The 2021 SVR also gets a new design for the alloy wheels and features some body-coloured detailing at the rear. As was the case with the outgoing model, the new Range Rover Sport SVR also gets the SVR badge on the tailgate.
Inside, the Range Rover Sport SVR features lightweight SVR Performance front seats that are upholstered in perforated Windsor leather. The seat backs are finished in satin black, while there’s an embossed SVR logo on the headrests. The 2021 SVR also gets an 825W, 19-speaker Meridian Surround Sound System, which comes with a dual-channel subwoofer and Trifield technology.
Land Rover has also made enhancements to the SVR’s chassis, making it more dynamic without compromising on its traditional Range Rover comfort or all-terrain capability. The suspension damping has also been tuned “to provide exceptional turn-in, mid-corner grip and body control”. Furthermore, the 2021 Range Rover SVR gets performance brake pads and discs that provide enhanced performance at higher temperatures and are more resistant to fade during dynamic driving.
