FOUR-CYLINDER petrol, plug-in hybrid and a stonking 423kW supercharged V8 have been added to the powertrain line-up for the facelifted Range Rover Sport that is scheduled to arrive in Australia about April next year.

In all, 15 variants over six trim levels will be offered in the new-look range, starting from the entry-level four-cylinder diesel SD4 at $95,100 plus on-road costs – a $4200 hike over the current SD4 – to the range-topping, V8 powered SVR at $238,200 (+$5000).

For the first time, an entry level petrol engine has been included in the form of the Si4 at $97,100. It is also available in mid-range SE form for $100,400.

These variants are powered by Jaguar Land Rover’s 2.0-litre turbo-charged Ingenium four-cylinder engine that puts out 221kW of power. The 3.0-litre petrol V6 SE has been discontinued.

As GoAuto has already reported, the revamped Range Rover Sport also gains a plug-in hybrid petrol electric powertrain for the first time in a new variant dubbed Si4.

This P400e powertrain marries the 221kW Ingenium 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine with an 85kW electric motor for a combined 297kW of power and 640Nm of torque.

The 13.1kWh battery under the rear seat can propel the Si4 PHEV for up to 51km and be charged in as little as three hours with a 32amp rapid charger.

In Australia, Range Rover Sport will debut the PHEV powertrain in only one specification level – HSE – at $146,600.

This makes it $3700 more affordable than the popular diesel V8-powered HSE SDV8 that is less powerful (250kW) and less efficient (8.7 litres per 100km versus the PHEV’s 2.8L/100km) on the combined fuel economy test.

Supercharged 5.0-litre petrol V8 engines will be available in three levels – HSE Dynamic, Autobiography Dynamic and SVR.

The first two employ a 386kW version of the blown V8 – up 11kW on the current variants – while the SVR goes the whole hog with a 423kW version – up 18kW.

Other powertrains include diesel V6s in TDV6 (190kW) and SDV6 (225kW) forms.

As before, all powertrains employ a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

Prices of most of the Range Rover Sport variants have gone up by a few thousand dollars, with the rises between $1500 and $7500.

JLR points to new features such as “intelligent” LED headlights and a Touch Pro Duo infotainment system with two 10-inch screens as justification for the rises.

Standard equipment includes a 4G WiFi hotspot, dual-zone climate control (three-zone on SVR), adaptive cruise control and autonomous emergency braking.
