If you’re shopping for one of these excellent SUVs, you might be wondering whether you should choose the 2019 or 2018 model year. We’re here to help you understand the differences between these two models, so you can choose the one that’s right for you.

Performance

On the 2019 and 2018 Range Rover Sport, you’ll find the same standard engine. It’s a 3.0-liter V6 that makes 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that powers all four wheels. A diesel option is available for the SE and HSE trims. This turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 makes 254 horses and 443 pound-feet of torque for world-class performance and impressive fuel economy. For 2019, the Range Rover Sport introduces a new plug-in hybrid powertrain, available for the HSE trim only. Its turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four works with an 85-kW electric motor to produce a combined output of 398 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque. The plug-in hybrid will also run for an estimated 31 miles on electric power only. The 2018 Supercharged, Supercharged Dynamic, and Autobiography trims feature a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine rated for 518 horses and 461 pound-feet of torque. This engine is also available on the 2019 Autobiography and Supercharged Dynamic trims. The Supercharged trim was dropped from the Range Rover Sport lineup for 2019.

Appearance

Both the 2019 and 2018 Range Rover Sport are part of the line’s second generation, which debuted for the 2014 model year. There weren’t any exterior style changes for 2019, so you can expect these two luxury SUVs to look like virtual twins, depending on the wheels and trim level you select.

Features

For 2019, the Range Rover Sport picked up a few new features. Besides introducing a new plug-in hybrid model, this SUV also offers a newly optional Wade Sensing feature. As you ford rivers, this safety item warns drivers when the water is getting too deep. If you’re the adventurous type, this handy feature will keep you from flooding your Range Rover Sport. Both the 2018 and 2019 Range Rover Sport SUVs were built to supply a plush ride. Therefore, both come standard with a long list of comfort features, including ambient interior lighting, dual-zone climate control, and leather upholstery. The 14-way power-adjustable front seats are another nice touch, helping you find that just-right spot at the wheel.

The 2019 Range Rover adds some safety features to the standard lineup. It includes lane departure warning and forward collision warning with low-speed automatic emergency braking as part of the standard lineup. As you climb the trim levels, you’ll find an impressive array of luxury features. For example, the HSE adds perforated leather upholstery and premium interior trim. The HSE Dynamic features a power-sliding sunroof. At the high end of the spectrum, on the Supercharged Dynamic, you’ll find extra performance gear, such as the Off-Road package and paddle shifters. The top-of-the-line SVR trim adds sport-tuned suspension and steering as well as a transmission that’s tuned for a sportier ride.
