Shift into luxury and performance

It’s difficult to find fault with the 2019 Range Rover Sport. This is the quintessential SUV, from its eye-catching exterior design and richly appointed cabin styling to its driving performance. It offers you a luxurious cabin with new suede and leather seating.

The manual transmission option, along with leather and suede seating, was new for the 2019 HST model. Although the SVR and Autobiography trim levels didn’t change much this model year, new features and options were introduced elsewhere in the lineup. The supercharged V6 engine was replaced by a turbocharged V6 mild hybrid. The efficient Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) adds the benefits of an electrified powertrain to these capabilities.

5 reasons to buy the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

1. Impressive styling enhancements 

The 2019 Range Rover Sport is equipped with revised spoilers, front and rear bumpers, integrated exhaust finishers, and redesigned grilles. Newly styled LED headlights add to the allure of this SUV at night or in the light of day.  

Turn heads as you listen to your favorite tunes via Android Auto and Apple Carplay® integration, Bluetooth® connectivity, SiriusXM® satellite radio-ready, or HD radio. All through the great Meridian sound system, standard on most models except the SE. New front and rear bumpers, LED lighting, and front grille design enhance the curb appeal of these Land Rover models.  

2. Wade sensing option for driving in water 

When a water main breaks or fate drops a shallow water hazard in your path, the 2019 Range Rover Sport can alert you should the water exceed your vehicle’s comfort level. Wade Sensing is the latest in this SUV’s impressive lineup of driver-assist features. Even if you didn't put your "Wellies" (aka rubber boots) on and measure the depth of water in your path, your touchscreen will show you the water level. An audible alarm will also sound with increasing volume as a warning if you should reverse out of the water.  

3. Powerful plug-in hybrid engine 

Does a 398-hp V6 PHEV (P400e engine) that can accelerate from zero to 60 mph sound like a plan? The EPA estimates that, with a full charge, the all-electric power can take you just under 30 miles when fully charged.

Alternatively, use Predictive Energy Optimization (PEO) to let the vehicle decide how to draw from its electric and gas power sources. ECO mode smooths out throttle response sensitivity and eases the engine's workload.  

4. Improved storage with stow-away rear seats 

When you take the family for a camping trip or the dog for a hike in the forest, you’ll need additional storage capacity. The rear seats fold down beneath the floor, while rear seat entertainment screens keep passengers entertained after a day in the wilderness. Storage space ranges from 7.8 cu-ft when all seats are in place to 40.7 cu-ft when four seats are installed. If you store the back two seats under the floor, and fold down the middle seats, you will have nearly 60 cu-ft of cargo space for whatever gear you need on a given day.    

5. Adjustable electronic air suspension  

If traffic gridlock is bringing you down, head out into the country and discover how the 2019 Range Rover Sport handles on curvy mountain trails, snowy deserted roads, or a Land Rover Experience Center. Feel how smoothly the vehicle rides on its 19-inch plus wheels when they roll together over uneven terrain. Manual or automated Terrain Response® mode switching keeps you moving forward.
