2014 Range Rover Sport launched in Malaysia with two petrol and one diesel options
Following a host of teasers, the next generation Range Rover Sport has been finally launched in Malaysia, positioned between the smaller Range Rover Evoque and the full sized Range Rover. Introduced in both petrol and diesel engine options, the company promises the new Range Rover Sport to be the most balanced and capable Range Rover to date.
Launched in India last year at a starting price of Rs 1.09 crores, Jaguar Land Rover introduced the new Range Rover Sport in Malaysia for a starting price of RM 859,888 (INR 1,58,33,251). Unlike India, where only two variants are on offer, the 3.0l V6 diesel and 5.0l petrol, Malaysia gets an additional third variant in the form of 3.0L V6 petrol.
