Engines

5.0 V8 S/C 575 Auto
The SVR model is the full-house, go-faster model. It’s thunderously powerful, noisy and exciting, but with sufficiently good manners to soothe the miles away when required. On the other hand, when you want it to, it is unashamedly noisy and extravagant, and makes the Range Rover Sport indecently fast for something so big. Our True MPG real-world fuel economy testers managed just 18.8mpg, so prepare for some almighty bills; reckon on getting 22mpg on a good day, if you can resist the engine’s power and soundtrack.
5.0 V8 S/C Auto
Land Rover’s supercharged V8 engine doesn’t do demure; instead, it delivers plenty of performance and noise, making the Range Rover Sport something of a super-luxury SUV dragster. Fuel bills are, as you’d expect, scary.
3.0 V6 S/C Auto
The 3.0-litre V6 petrol propels the Range Rover Sport down the road fairly swiftly. However, you need to rev it harder than either of the diesels and it’s too thirsty to recommend.
2.0 PHEV P400e
The PHEV P400e combines the Si4 petrol&#39;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&#39;s a little clunky at times as it switches between engine and motor, but the regenerative brakes work relatively smoothly. It&#39;s superb for those driver&#39;s who mainly drive in town and who 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&#39;ll see will be around 25mpg.
2.0 Si4 Auto
This four-cylinder petrol engine was introduced for 2018. We haven’t driven it yet, but that will change in the next couple of months.
4.4 SDV8 Auto
If you can afford it, this V8 diesel engine provides effortless pace with acceptable running costs. Press the accelerator hard and performance is startling (the engine has the throaty soundtrack to match), while our True MPG testers recorded 28.1mpg, so fuel economy is far from terrible.
Our pick
3.0 SDV6 Auto
The SDV6 has plenty of low-rev shove, helping to mask the car’s considerable mass. However, rivals such as the Audi Q7 3.0 TDI 272 and BMW X5 40d are that little bit faster.
