2019 Range Rover Sport P400 verdict
There's an all-new mild hybrid straight six under the bonnet of the Range Rover Sport P400 HST; can electrification improve this luxury SUV?...
The Range Rover Sport P400 may not be anywhere near as frugal as the plug-in hybrid equivalent is capable of being, but it is quick, and that’s ultimately what you’re paying for. If you’re not able to stretch to the top-spec supercharged petrol units in the Autobiography Dynamic or SVR, this is the one you’ll want, especially because that added mild hybrid tech does do its bit to help you save on running costs.
The P400 is pricey in HST trim, but you do have the option of pairing this engine with cheaper HSE and HSE Dynamic trims. Just bear in mind that if you're committed to the eco life, or just want to pay less company car tax, the plug-in hybrid version, with its four-cylinder petrol engine and electric motor, costs less and will prove much cheaper to run if you charge it regularly.
