Introduction

This handbook covers all current versions of the Range Rover Sport petrol and diesel models and, together with the other books in your literature pack, provides all the information that you need to derive maximum pleasure from owning and driving your new vehicle.

For your convenience, the handbook is divided into sections, each dealing with a different aspect of the vehicle. These are listed on the Contents page and you will find it worthwhile to take a little time to read each one, and get to know your Range Rover Sport as soon as you possibly can. The more you understand before you drive, the greater the satisfaction once you are seated behind the steering wheel.

The specification of each vehicle will vary according to territorial requirements and also from model to model within the vehicle range. Some of the information published in this handbook, therefore, may not apply to your particular vehicle.

To include changes made after the handbook is printed, it is sometimes necessary to issue one or more handbook supplements. When reading this handbook, check the literature pack for possible supplements.

Any further updates will be posted on the Land Rover internet site and can be accessed at www.landrover.com in the Owner Information area.

* An asterisk appearing within the handbook text identifies features or items of equipment that are either optional, or are only fitted to some vehicles in the model range.

Land Rover operates a policy of constant product improvement and therefore reserves the right to change specifications without notice at any time. Whilst every effort is made to ensure complete accuracy of the information in this handbook, no liabilities for inaccuracies or the consequences thereof can be accepted by the manufacturer or the dealer, except in respect of personal injury caused by the negligence of the manufacturer or the dealer.

All rights reserved. No part of this publication may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system or transmitted, in any form, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording or other means without prior written permission from the Service Division of Land Rover.

Quick Overview

VOICE RECOGNITION*

Voice control provides a safe and convenient way of operating the audio system without the need to operate the controls manually. This enables you to concentrate fully on driving the vehicle, and removes the need to divert your attention from the road ahead in order to change settings, or receive feedback from the system.

A number of voice commands are available, and with a little experience you will find them easy and convenient to use. Whenever you issue one of the defined commands with the system active, the voice control system converts your command into a control signal for the audio system. Your inputs take the form of dialogues or commands. You are guided through these dialogues by announcements or questions.

Activating the system

H6159L

To activate voice control:

Briefly pull the control paddle (your Audio will mute at this point). A brief acoustic signal will be heard, and ‘LISTENING’ will be displayed on the main message centre to indicate that the system is now waiting for a voice command.

Note: It is only necessary to use the steering wheel voice control paddle at the beginning of each voice session.

Defined voice commands

The voice control system understands predefined commands which need to be quoted word for word.

An audio feedback of voice commands is available. To activate the feedback, pull the voice control paddle briefly and give one of the following commands:

General commands

Voice help: To list all commands.

Notepad Help: To list Notepad commands.

Audio commands

Radio help: To list Radio commands.

CD help: To list CD commands.

Please refer to the Audio System Handbook for full operating instructions.

Navigation & Telephone commands

Phone help: To list telephone commands.

Navigation help: To list Navigation commands.

Please refer to the Navigation, TV & Telephone Handbook for full operating instructions.

Filling Station Information

TYRE PRESSURES

Air pressure naturally increases in warm tyres (after the vehicle has been driven for a while). If you have to check warm tyres, you should expect the pressures to have increased by between 30 and 40 kPa (0.3 to 0.4 bar) (4 to 6 lbf/in2). In this circumstance, NEVER let air out of the tyres in order to match the recommended pressures.

General Information

HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS

WARNING

Your vehicle has a higher ground clearance and, hence, a higher centre of gravity than ordinary passenger cars. This will result in different handling characteristics.

Inexperienced drivers should take additional care, particularly in off-road driving situations and when performing abrupt manoeuvres on unstable surfaces.

SYMBOLS

The following symbols used within the handbook call your attention to specific types of information.

This recycling symbol identifies those

items that must be disposed of safely in order to prevent unnecessary damage

to the environment.

This symbol identifies those features that can be adjusted or disabled/enabled by a Land Rover Dealer/Authorised Repairer.

WARNINGS IN THIS HANDBOOK

WARNING

Safety warnings are included in this handbook. These indicate either a procedure which must be followed precisely, or information that should be considered with great care in order to avoid the possibility of personal injury.

Caution: Cautions are included in this handbook. These indicate either a procedure which must be followed precisely, or information that should be considered with great care in order to avoid the possibility of damage to your vehicle.

WARNING LABELS ATTACHED TO THE VEHICLE

Labels showing this symbol indicate that the ignition system utilises very high voltages. DO NOT touch any ignition components while the starter switch is turned on!

SECURITY CARD

The security card, supplied with the literature pack, contains important emergency information. It is ESSENTIAL that you keep the card safe from theft and ensure that it is passed to the new owner if you sell the vehicle.

Locking wheel nut number: If your vehicle has locking wheel nuts, you will have been provided with a special wheel nut socket to remove them. You will need to quote this number to obtain a replacement socket.

VIN (Vehicle Identification Number): This identity number is unique to your vehicle and is essential proof of its specification. The number can also be found in various locations around the vehicle (see VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (VIN), 270).

Caution: Never leave the security card inside the vehicle when it is unattended.

BRAKE PADS

Brake pads require a period of bedding in. For the first 800 km (500 miles), you should avoid situations where heavy braking is required.

Regular servicing is vital to ensure that the brake pads are examined for wear and changed periodically to ensure long term safety and optimum performance.

IN AN EMERGENCY

Remember the breakdown safety code

If a breakdown occurs while travelling:

Wherever possible, consistent with road safety and traffic conditions, the vehicle should be moved off the main thoroughfare, preferably into a lay-by. If a breakdown occurs on a motorway, pull well over to the inside of the hard shoulder.

Switch on hazard lights.

If possible, position a warning triangle or a flashing amber light at an appropriate distance from the vehicle to warn other traffic of the breakdown, (note the legal requirements of some countries).

Consider evacuating passengers through nearside doors onto the verge as a precaution in case your vehicle is accidentally struck by other traffic.

23

General Information

ON-BOARD EVENT DATA

Service data recording

Service data recorders in your vehicle are capable of collecting and storing diagnostic information about your vehicle. This potentially includes information about the performance or status of various systems and modules in the vehicle such as engine, throttle, steering or brakes.

In order to properly diagnose and service your vehicle, Land Rover and service and repair facilities may access vehicle diagnostic information through a direct connection to your vehicle.

Event data recording

Other modules in your vehicle - event data recorders - are capable of collecting and storing data during a crash or near-crash event. The recorded information may assist in the investigation of such an event. The modules may record information about both the vehicle and the occupants, potentially including information such as:

How various systems in your vehicle were operating.

Whether or not the driver and passenger seat belts were buckled.

How far, if at all, the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or the brake pedal.

How fast the vehicle was travelling.

Where the driver was positioning the steering wheel.

To access this information special equipment must be connected directly to the recording modules. Land Rover do not access event data recorder information without obtaining consent, unless pursuant to court order or where required by law enforcement, other government authorities or third parties acting with lawful authority.

Other parties may seek to access the information independently of Land Rover.

24

Keys and Handsets

KEYS AND HANDSETS

H5966G

You have been supplied with two remote handsets with integral keys which operate all of the vehicle’s locks.

The operation of all transmitter buttons, on all handsets, will be inhibited whilst a key is in the starter switch.

Note: The key transmitter may not operate correctly in areas that are subject to interference from other radio equipment operating on a similar frequency. Areas where, for example, equipment such as amateur radio, medical devices, telecommunications equipment or other remotely operated alarms are in use may cause difficulty. If such difficulties are experienced, try to operate the transmitter as close as possible to the vehicle, or use the key in the door lock.

The keys supplied with your vehicle are programmed to your security system - the engine cannot be started without a key programmed to your vehicle.

Caution: Keep the spare handset key in a safe place - NOT IN THE VEHICLE.

The other two keys that you have received are for locking the main glovebox.

Note: Should a key transmitter be lost or damaged, a replacement can only be obtained from your Land Rover Dealer/Authorised Repairer, where it will be programmed to your vehicle. The dealer will require proof of ownership, and keep a log of all enquiries for replacement key transmitters.

It is advisable to notify your dealer as soon as possible if a key transmitter is lost or stolen, and have the remaining transmitters reprogrammed. This will prevent access to the vehicle using the lost/stolen transmitter.

Remote handset battery

The battery is rechargeable. The fact that the battery needs recharging will be apparent from the following:

‘KEY BATTERY LOW’ will be displayed in the main message centre.

A gradual deterioration in range and performance will be noticed.

Caution: The handset contains delicate electronic circuits and must be protected from impact and water damage, high temperatures and humidity, direct sunlight and the effects of solvents, waxes and abrasive cleaners.

Battery recharge

Insert the key into the starter switch and start the engine. This will start to recharge the handset battery.

25

Locks and Alarms

SECURITY SYSTEM

Locks and Alarms

Anti-theft alarm indicator

1

H5969G

The indicator provides information about the status of the alarm and immobiliser systems, as follows:

When the alarm is armed with interior space protection*:

The indicator will triple flash for 10 seconds then continue to single flash until the vehicle is disarmed and immobilised.

When the alarm is armed without interior space protection:

The indicator will double flash for 10 seconds, then continue to single flash until the vehicle is disarmed and immobilised.

When the alarm is disarmed but the vehicle is immobilised (key out of starter switch):

The indicator will single flash until the alarm is armed or the vehicle is mobilised.

When the alarm is disarmed and the vehicle is mobilised (key in starter switch):

The indicator gives a one-second flash on remobilisation.

If the alarm sounds

If the alarm is triggered, the alarm will sound and the hazard warning lamps will flash for 30 seconds, before resetting to the same protection status that existed prior to the alarm being triggered.

To silence the alarm, press the lock or unlock button on the remote handset or insert the key into the starter switch. Pressing the lock button will keep the alarm armed.

When the vehicle is disarmed, the hazard warning lamps will quickly flash eight times if the alarm has sounded since the vehicle was last armed.

Superlocking

WARNING

For safety, NEVER use Superlocking if passengers are to remain inside the vehicle - in an emergency they would not be able to escape, or be released by emergency services. Also, any movement from within the vehicle would activate the interior space protection alarm*.

Superlocking is activated by one press of the lock button on the handset.

When the vehicle is superlocked the doors can only be opened from inside or outside of the vehicle with the correct key or key transmitter.

Superlocking immobilises the interior door handles, thereby preventing an intruder from gaining entry by smashing a window and reaching inside the vehicle to operate the door handles.

30

Locks and Alarms

Perimetric alarm

This feature is activated automatically whenever the vehicle is locked using the handset and protects the doors, bonnet and tailgate.

If any of these apertures are opened, or a key that has not been programmed to the vehicle is inserted into the ignition switch, while the feature is activated, the alarm will be triggered.

When the perimetric alarm is activated the direction indicators will flash three times, and the security system status indicator will flash.

Mislock

If an aperture is open when an attempt is made to lock the vehicle an audible warning will sound once to indicate that the vehicle is not secure.

Interior space protection*

Interior space protection is activated whenever the vehicle is superlocked.

Note: Never activate interior space protection if windows or sunroof are to be left open, or if passengers or animals are to be left inside the vehicle - any movement will activate the alarm.

Interior space protection is designed to protect the interior of the vehicle from intrusion (entry by a thief through a smashed window, for example). Four roof-mounted sensors monitor the interior space and activate the alarm if air movement is detected in the passenger compartment.

Note: Interior space protection cannot be activated if a door is open.

H5972G

Disabling interior space protection:

If there is a requirement to disable interior space protection (if a window or sunroof is to be left open, for example), press the lock button on the remote handset twice within three seconds.

Tilt Sensor*

Your vehicle is fitted with a tilt sensor which activates the alarm if the vehicle is tilted fore and aft, or side to side, after it has been superlocked.

The alarm will sound if theft is attempted by hoisting onto another vehicle or if a side is lifted to attempt wheel removal.

Disabling tilt sensor protection:

If you wish to have the doors locked but the tilt sensor disabled (e.g. when aboard a ferry or having the vehicle transported on a recovery truck) press the lock button twice within three seconds.

31

Locks and Alarms

Single-point entry

This is a personal security feature, which enables only the driver's door to be unlocked, leaving the other doors in a locked state.

Single-point entry can be disabled on individual handset keys by pressing and holding the lock and unlock buttons together for three seconds.

Repeating the procedure will re-enable the feature.

Each time single-point entry is turned on or off, the vehicle will lock then unlock into the selected mode (all doors unlocked or just driver’s door unlocked).

Battery-backed sounder*

This device will sound the full alarm if the alarm is activated, or if the vehicle’s battery or the sounder is disconnected whilst the security system is armed.

ALARM SYSTEM

H5967G

Your vehicle is fitted with a sophisticated electronic anti-theft alarm and engine immobilisation system. There are also a number of additional security features, some of which are selectable options and some are standard features of the vehicle.

In order to ensure maximum security and operating convenience, you are strongly advised to gain a full understanding of the features and alternatives available, by thoroughly reading this section of the handbook.

Note: FOR MAXIMUM SECURITY ALWAYS SUPERLOCK THE VEHICLE. If passengers or animals are to be left in the vehicle, windows and/or sunroof are left open, or the vehicle is on a moving platform, e.g. a ferry, lock the vehicle by pressing the lock button twice within three seconds. This disables the superlocking, tilt sensing* and interior space protection*.

32

Locks and Alarms

LOCKING/UNLOCKING

While it is not necessary to point the handset at the vehicle, the handset must be within range of the vehicle when a button is pressed.

Note: If the handset fails to work even when close to the vehicle, it could be that it is not synchronised with the system, see Emergency locking/unlocking, 35. Putting the key in the starter switch and running the engine for six minutes will restore full operation.

The operating range may vary depending upon handset battery condition and may sometimes be limited by physical and geographical factors beyond your control.

Note: If a key is in the starter switch, the vehicle will not respond to remote handset commands.

In either case, the interior lamps illuminate and the direction indicators flash once.

The hazard warning lamps will quickly flash eight times when the vehicle is disarmed if the alarm has sounded since the vehicle was last armed.

4.Customer Configuration - ‘Land Rover’ button: This button can be configured to operate panic alarm, headlamp courtesy delay, tailgate release, tailglass release or suspension control (see ‘LAND ROVER’ BUTTON, 26).

Partial arming

If the driver’s door is not fully closed when the handset lock button is pressed, the doors will remain unlocked and the alarm will remain disarmed. A brief sound from the vehicle horn will confirm that the door is not fully closed.

If a passenger door or other aperture is not fully closed when the handset lock button is pressed, the ‘partial arming’ attributes of the security system will enable as much of the system to be armed as possible (all fully closed door, bonnet or tailgate apertures will be protected, but an open one will not).

A brief sound from the vehicle’s horns will confirm that an aperture is not fully closed.

As soon as the open aperture is closed, the system will automatically arm, signalled by three flashes of the hazard warning lamps, with interior space protection* activating 30 seconds after all apertures are closed.

Note: The vehicle will not superlock if an aperture (other than the bonnet) is open.

WARNING

 

To avoid the risk of loss of control and

 

personal injury, DO NOT adjust the driver's

 

seat while the vehicle is in motion.

 

Sitting correctly

 

The seats, head restraints, seat belts and

 

airbags all contribute to the protection of the

 

occupants. Optimal use of these components

 

will give you more protection. Therefore,

 

observe the following points:

 

• Sit in the most upright position with the

H5984L

base of your spine as far back as possible

 

and the backrest not reclined more than 30 degrees.

Do not move the front seat too close to the instrument panel. The driver should hold the steering wheel with slightly bent arms. The legs should also be slightly bent so that the pedals can be pressed to the floor.

The seat belt should rest in the centre of the shoulder. The lap part should fit tightly across the hips and not on the stomach.

Make sure your driving position is comfortable and enables you to maintain full control of the vehicle. A properly adjusted seat helps reduce the risk of injury from sitting too close to an inflating airbag.

REAR SEATS

WARNING

DO NOT adjust any part of a seat while the vehicle is in motion.

Vehicle movement may cause the seat to suddenly shift, potentially causing injury.

Folding down the seats

One or both parts of the unequally split second-row seat can be fully folded to further increase the rear loadspace.

Remove any items from the second-row seats and from the rear footwell before attempting to fold down the seats.

If the front seats are in their rearmost position, move them forward. They can be returned to their original position after the second-row seat backs have been folded down.

Ensure that the head restraints are fully lowered. Press in the collar at the base of the headrest support, and push the headrest down.

Using the strap at the rear of each cushion, pull the required cushions forwards as far as they will travel .

To fold a backrest forwards, pull the seat backrest release lever(s). While pulling the lever(s) located on the top edges of the backrests, tip the seat backrest(s) forwards as far as possible.

Note: Only Land Rover approved seat covers and accessories should be used on these seats.

Returning the seats to the upright position

H6010G

Pull the strap vertically on the back of the seat to unlock the seat. Continue to pull to raise the backrest(s) until they click into position. Push the seat cushion(s) firmly back into position.

Visually check that the lever is fully in place. If it has not returned to its locked position, red ‘flags’ will be visible around the lever sides.

To raise the headrest pull it upwards to the required height.

WARNING

After the seat is returned to the upright position, the latching mechanism should be checked and physically tested to ensure that both the seat base and backrest are secure before driving.

Also, ensure that the headrest is adjusted correctly for each passenger (the top of the headrest should be above the centre line of the head).

Seat Belts

SEAT BELTS

The use of front and rear seat belts is mandatory in most countries. Using seat belts saves lives. They should be worn by all occupants whenever the vehicle is in use, for maximum protection.

Lap/shoulder inertia reel seat belts are provided for both front seat occupants and all rear seat positions.

The inertia reel operating mechanism of the seat belts allows the wearers to move their upper bodies to reach various controls. The seat belt locks automatically with accelerated body movement or in the event of emergency braking.

The front seat belt assemblies are fitted with pre-tensioners. The pre-tensioners operate with the airbags as part of the Airbag Supplementary Restraint System (SRS), see

AIRBAG SRS, 60.

Seat belt warning indicator*

Driver Beltminder commences when the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’ and the driver belt is unbuckled.

In certain markets the seatbelt reminder feature also applies to the passenger seat and will be activated if the seat is occupied and the occupant is unbuckled.

The visual and audible warnings applicable to either driver or passenger Beltminder are market dependant to meet individual market requirements. The warning signals given may also change depending on whether the vehicle is stationary or when the vehicle speed exceeds a pre-determined threshold (see AUDIBLE WARNINGS, 102).

Note: Objects placed on the passenger seat may activate the seatbelt warning system when this feature is fitted.

SEATBELT USE DURING PREGNANCY

WARNING

Pregnant women must wear a correctly positioned seat belt; it is safer for mother and unborn child.

During pregnancy, women should wear the lap belt across the hips below the baby, with the diagonal belt passing across the shoulder, between the breasts and to one side of the baby - if in doubt, consult a doctor.

H6016G

Never place anything between you and the seat belt in an attempt to cushion the impact in the event of an accident. It can be dangerous and reduce the effectiveness of the seat belt in preventing injury.
