With an as-tested price of $93,000, it may be a bit of a stretch to call this 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Plug-In Hybrid a bargain. It does, however, cost about $20,000 less than a similarly optioned plug-in hybrid version of the brand’s flagship Range Rover, which is about the same size and uses the same electrified powertrain. Now that we have your attention, let's take a closer look and this fuel-efficient luxury SUV.
Land Rover builds the world’s premier lineup of luxury SUVs, and last year it expanded its Range Rover Sport range to include a plug-in hybrid, or PHEV, model. It sits in the center of several available powertrains, including a fuel-efficient turbodiesel and a 575-horsepower supercharged V8. Land Rover introduced the popular Range Rover Sport model in 2004. Now in its second generation, the plug-in hybrid version competes against a long list of European luxury SUVs, including hybrid versions of the BMW X5, Porsche Cayenne, and Volvo XC90.
