This is the brand new plug-in hybrid Variety Rover Sport, and Mat's about to learn whether you ought to pick it over the petrol-powered edition!
For beginners, it looks quite striking and is immediately recognisable as a Range Rover Sport. When it concerns create distinctions compared to the basic Variety Rover Sport … Well, there aren't any! Apart from the charging port towards the rear of the cars and truck, the plug-in hybrid and fuel cars are identical.
It's a comparable story on the inside, too! It includes a big infotainment screen, good quality materials throughout most of the cabin, and huge, comfy seats. The only distinction compared to the petrol-powered cars and truck is some extra screens on the infotainment system, in addition to new options on the digital dials to allow you to drive in electric-power mode.
Under the bonnet, you'll find a 3-litre turbocharged straight-six engine in addition to an electrical motor. The range-topping edition can produce 510hp, which sends power to all 4 wheels.
As for the price, well it's pretty costly, being available in at just under ₤ 114,000! But then again, that's just ₤ 4,000 more than the petrol-powered car! So with that in mind, should you just choose the plug-in hybrid rather? Stick to Mat and see for yourself!
