What's New For 2018?
The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport features a more slimmed-down but aggressive-looking exterior, which keeps up with the trend in styling luxury vehicles. There is a brand-new bumper that is supposed to improve airflow, and there are new 21- and 22-inch wheels. On the interior, there are two brand-new 10-inch LCD touchscreen displays. While 2018's line-up does not yet have a plug-in hybrid variant, one is expected in 2019.
The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is available as a luxury sport SUV. Second-row seating is standard, but a third row is optional on most trim levels.
There are five different trim levels available on the Range Rover Sport. The base trim is known as the SE, and it features a self-leveling air suspension system, a power liftgate, and parking sensors for the rear. Additionally, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and many other driver assist features come standard across the line-up. The HSE has everything that is on the SE but adds a panoramic sunroof and upgraded leather upholstery. The mid-level trim is the Supercharged, which swaps the standard V6 for a higher-powered V8 engine. It adds shift paddles to the steering wheel and an upgraded four-wheel drive system. The Autobiography trim has larger wheels, a cooler box for the front console, and heated rear seats. The line-topping SVR has most of the Autobiography's features plus unique interior and exterior styling details.
If you really want a powerful performance, opt for the Autobiography or the Supercharged trim since that will give you the 510 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque produced by the supercharged V8. The SVR has a tweaked version of this that is even more powerful, but it is quite the gas-guzzler. While the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport does not handle steep mountain pathways with the same agility as a Porsche Cayenne, it provides a lot of stability and traction. Also, the Sport's air springs do an excellent job of smoothing out the ride quality. Overall, the acceleration that the Range Rover Sport gets feels ample enough when you opt for the supercharged V8, although you will notice that the standard V6 feels a bit lackluster. The brakes have just the right amount of firmness to them, so making a panic stop feels secure. For being such a large vehicle, the Sport really does live up to its designation as a sport-oriented vehicle, as it handles with ease and does not produce much in the way of body roll.
Unfortunately, fuel economy is where the Sport falls behind. The V6 will get you 19 combined mpg (17 city/23 highway), which pales in comparison to the competition. The diesel option does much better, getting 24 mpg combined (22 city/28 highway). The supercharged V8 gets just 16 mpg combined (14 city/19 highway), which is fairly predictable.
The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport provides a lot of standard features on its base trim, which gives it some bang for its buck. The ride quality is also quite refined, but the fuel economy you get on these gas-only SUVs is pretty poor.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Range Rover Sport invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Range Rover Sport MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
