Range Rover Sport Honoured as Best SUV in 2015 Fleet World Awards

- Range Rover Sport named Best SUV in 2015 Fleet World Honours

- Over 85 awards for Range Rover Sport since 2013 launch

- Critical acclaim for handling, refinement and driver engagement

The Range Rover Sport has been awarded 'Best SUV' in the 2015 Fleet World Honours, demonstrating its prowess in a hotly contested category.

Launched in 2013, the Range Rover Sport has amassed over 85 awards globally including its recent accolade for Best Large SUV in the 2015 What Car? Awards, proving it's still the benchmark in its class.

Fleet World Editor, Steve Moody said: “The Sport feels a cut above the rest of the SUV segment, taking the luxury of the full-size Range Rover and condensing it. Generously equipped, widespread use of aluminium means it's also better to drive and more fuel efficient than ever, without compromising off-road ability. The excellent 169g/km diesel-hybrid is a unique, and versatile, option in the segment."

Accepting the award, Jon Wackett, Fleet & Business Sales General Manager for Jaguar Land Rover, commented: "We are delighted to see that the Range Rover Sport continues to impress the critics two years after launch. These two awards show that Jaguar Land Rover has one of the most capable and diverse vehicle line-ups in the industry – one that consists of desirable vehicles that appeal to the head as well as the heart."

Land Rover recently added the Range Rover Sport Hybrid to its line-up. The sophisticated hybrid powertrain enhances performance and efficiency with an extra 170Nm of torque from its electric motors contributing to 700Nm of torque. The Range Rover Sport Hybrid delivers 44.1mpg on a combined cycle, achieving 60mph from standing in 6.4 seconds.
