2018 Range Rover Sport Lineup Revealed With New Plug-in Hybrid And More Powerful SVR

Land Rover has officially unveiled the facelifted Range Rover Sport.

Looking instantly recognizable, the updated model has been equipped with a new front bumper, a revised grille, and Matrix Pixel LED headlights.

The styling changes continue in the cabin as there’s a new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system with two 10-inch touchscreen displays. Other changes include additional charging ports and the availability of an Activity Key which enables owners to lock and unlock their vehicle without the need to carry a key fob.

Besides the styling tweaks, there’s a new plug-in hybrid variant called the P400e. It features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and a 13.1 kWh lithium-ion battery which powers an electric motor. This setup enables the model to produce a combined maximum output of 404 PS (297 kW) and 640 Nm (472 lb-ft) of torque. In terms of performance, the Range Rover Sport P400e can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.3 seconds before hitting a top speed of 137 mph (220 km/h). The battery enables the model to travel up to 31 miles (51 km) on electricity alone and can be recharged in as little as 2 hours and 45 minutes.

Elsewhere, the SVR variant has been given a modest performance boost as its supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine now produces 575 PS (422 kW). Thanks to the extra power, the sportiest Range Rover Sport rockets from 0-60 mph in just 4.3 seconds.

The 2018 Range Rover Sport will be launched in the United Kingdom early next year and pricing starts at £61,315. The P400e begins at £70,800 while the SVR is a wallet busting £99,680.

    visually, i absofuckinlutely love this car.
    but glossy kingdom inside and questionable reliability is big no for me to consider this as best car in segment.
    and i am sad because of it.

      You and me both. I would really like to support this brand but I can’t bring myself to do it, because I have a code of ethics.

    Looks good, but Land Rover really needs to improve their photoshop skills. Most of the pictures in the city looks horrible and awkward

    Just as I thought they couldn’t make it look even better, they did.

    Good updates. The interior is stunning. Not a fan of the Pontiac Grand Am styling of the blue one.

  • The way LR integrated the charging port to the grill is just lovely.

  • Nordschleife

    Didn’t the range arover come out before this. I thought they would have updated that first. Well we know what it will look like.

    You know the only thing that I find funny about this is that the previous RR Sport owners will feel sick from buying the chunky iteration. I wonder about the quality and reliability though?
