Rent in Italy Range Rover Sport HST 2019 - Delivery all Europe

The 2019 Range Rover Sport is the first Jaguar Land Rover product to receive the company's new turbo- and supercharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine. Everything about the new powerplant had us hoping it would provide the performance that has been sorely missing from the entry-level Sport model. On paper it should have; in reality, it doesn't.

The new engine is an inline-six, an inherently smoother configuration than a V-6. It employs both a turbocharger to boost high-rpm power and an electric supercharger that can spin up to speed almost instantly to provide immediate low-rpm grunt that's supposed to help the Sport step off from rest with authority. The new engine utilizes a 48-volt electrical system and a small 0.2-kWh lithium-ion battery to drive a motor-generator, which delivers nearly seamless engine restarts from the standard stop-start system. A regenerative braking system recaptures energy and feeds it to the battery. This mild-hybrid system, however, does not enable driving on electric-only power.

This new powerplant comes in two output levels: a P360 variant making 355 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque, and a higher-output version producing 395 horses and 406 lb-ft, code-named P400. The lesser unit is standard in the Sport's SE and HSE trim levels, while the HST model tested here comes only with the uplevel six.

It lacked for no safety, audio, or comfort features save for massaging seats. As equipped, our test car was hunkered down on optional 22-inch all-season tires and looked ready to rip off a quick lap of the Nürburgring. Inside, it's indulgently luxurious, with almost every surface covered in supple, pimento-red and black leather or synthetic suede.
