The new Range Rover Sport is transformed by technology, with a plug-in hybrid electric powertrain as the company moves closer to its promise of delivering new Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles with the option of electrification.
Also as part of the mid-life update, power of the SVR's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 has been raised from 550hp to 575hp to help improve the 0-100kph time from 4.8sec to 4.6sec.
The plug-in hybrid Range Rover Sport won't arrive until summer 2018 however, as a 2019 model year.
On the other hand, if you're not arsed about the planet, the gloriously incorrect Range Rover Sport SVR receives a welcome power increase to just shy of 575bhp.
And if the hybrid isn't for you, a new 296bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine has joined the Range Rover Sport line-up.
As one of Australia's best-selling premium luxury SUVs, we expect that the new technology and upgrades to the 2018 Range Rover Sport will be of great appeal to our customers.
