Some rivals are faster and more fun to drive, but few are as comfortable or refined as the Range Rover Sport. Stick to the lower trim levels, though, as costs soon shoot up.get the best price
Trim: Autobiography Dynamic
This high-end trim is the only one offered with the SDV8 and V8 petrol engines. It comes with a panoramic glass roof, three-zone climate control, cooled front seats, a heated steering wheel and adaptive cruise control. It also gets an upgraded sound system.
Engine: 2.0 P400e
The PHEV P400e combines the Si4 petrol's 296bhp with a 114bhp electric motor to give a healthy blast of pace when you put your foot down – although not quite enough to match the Volvo XC90 T8 hybrid – and a quiet, electric-only range (of around 20 miles in the real world) when you use it in EV mode, which can be maintained at speeds up to 85mph. It's a little clunky at times as it switches between engine and motor, but the regenerative brakes work relatively smoothly. It's superb for those who mainly drive in town and can keep the battery charged (which takes around 2hrs and 45mins from a 32amp wall socket, or 7hrs 30mins from a standard three-pin plug), but once the batteries are depleted, the best average mpg you'll see will be around 25mpg.
