2018 Range Rover Sport P400e

Offering 398 horsepower, 472 pound-feet of torque, and 31 miles of pure-electric range, the new PHEV will be called P400e. The model features a 296-hp version of the 2.0-liter Ingenium four-cylinder found in the Evoque and various Jaguar models paired with an 114-hp electric motor. Land Rover says the SUV will hit 60 mph in 6.3 seconds and run to a top speed of 137 mph. For 2018, the entire Range Rover Sport family benefits from a raft of updates, including styling and performance tweaks and perhaps most importantly, Land Rover’s new InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, but that’s not all the big news for this Green Oval luxury bruiser. Land Rover has confirmed that the company’s first plug-in hybrid model will come to the Range Rover Sport family just in time for the 2019 model year.

The Sport interior’s biggest upgrade, though, is almost certain to be Touch Pro Duo, the same twin 10-inch screen infotainment system that I experienced in August in the new 2018 Range Rover Velar. It’ll take a lot more time with TPD to really sign off on its abilities, but it’s a very promising system. Inside, a redesigned cabin features slimmer seats, more storage space, and a new air ionization system. The cabin’s big new party trick? A gesture-controlled moonroof sunshade. That’s right, the blind will whir its way open or closed when you dismissively wave your hand.

Land Rover’s optional Td6 V6 diesel powertrain returns, again offering 254 hp and 443 pound-feet of torque, EPA highway fuel economy of 28 miles per gallon and a bladder-perforating 658 miles of range per tank. Most stateside Range Rover Sport models will be fitted with either Land Rover’s well-regarded 3.0-liter supercharged gas V6 (340 hp/332 pound-feet) or its 5.0-liter supercharged gas V8, the latter of which sees power nudge upward to 518 hp and peak torque set at 461 pound-feet.

Despite all the new equipment, Land Rover has held the line on pricing. A base 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SE fitted with the gas V6 starts at the same $66,750 MSRP as its predecessor, with the Td6 diesel coming in at $2,000 more. Stepping up to the V8-powered HSE costs $82,050, and the ultra-lux Autobiography still rings in at $96,650. After driving the stunning new Velar in August, I wondered aloud why buyers might still consider the costlier Range Rover Sport, mainly because of its inferior infotainment tech.
