Through adding Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, the Range Rover Sport can now maintain a set distance from the car in front, following it to a stop and pulling away again, if stationary for less than 3 seconds. Steering Assist helps keep the vehicle centered in its lane by providing moderate steering interventions. The technology uses lane markings or the path of the vehicle ahead and is deactivated by braking or switching lanes.
