The Land Rover Range Rover Sport sits directly in the middle of the Land Rover family, acting as a natural step up from the Evoque, but maintaining its distance from the more luxurious Range Rover. With last year's addition of a hybrid powertrain, the Range Rover Sport now appeals to even more consumers.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Overview
What's New for 2019
In Land Rover's attempt to stick to its word by electrifying all of its vehicles by 2020, the 2019 Range Rover Sport gets a new plug-in hybrid model. The variant features a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that's paired to an electric motor for a combined output of 398 horsepower. The plug-in hybrid variant has a range of 31 miles on electricity.
The SUV gets a host of new driver assist features for 2019, as well. Adaptive cruise control with steering assist, a new wade feature that provides real-time monitoring of the level of water surrounding the SUV, and automatic emergency braking are available on the Range Rover Sport.
Choosing Your Range Rover Sport
With six trims to choose from, there's a Range Rover Sport out there for everyone. The SUV runs the ladder of being everything from an efficient plug-in hybrid to a high-performance vehicle. The SUV is available with four different engines. The base powertrain is a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that's rated to make 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. The model is rated to get up to 17/23/19 mpg (city/highway/combined). A more powerful variant of the engine is also offered, which makes 380 hp. The motor gets the same fuel economy.
The next step up is a 3.0-liter diesel six-cylinder engine that generates 254 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. The diesel engine is currently the most efficient of the bunch with a rating of 22/28/24 mpg (city/highway/combined).
The new plug-in hybrid trim features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor for a combined output of 398 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy figures haven't been released yet for the plug-in hybrid model, but we expect it to be the most fuel-efficient offering. The electrified SUV can travel up to 31 miles on a single charge.
Lastly, for those seeking a high-performance SUV, the Range Rover Sport is available with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine. The V8 is available in two tunes – one produces 518 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque, while the other generates 575 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The V8 is rated to get up to 17/22/19 mpg (city/highway/combined).
An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard for the entire Range Rover Sport lineup.
If you're okay with a Range Rover Sport that doesn't have eight cylinders, the supercharged V6 engine has more than enough power for the majority of consumers. Those seeking more performance will gravitate toward the HSE Dynamic, while the regular HSE trim is a happy medium when it comes to standard equipment and pricing. While pricey, the Driver Assist Package adds advanced safety features in one convenient package, while the Off-Road Package is an obvious choice for consumers looking to do some serious off-roading.
