The Sport HST will fit into the Range Rover Sport line above the base 340PS model and below the uprated 550PS model. It will slip between those two vehicles using a supercharged V6 producing 380PS.
The new addition gives Range Rover Sport buyers something to choose that has more power than the base model, but is more efficient than the top of the line version. The Sport HST will be available to purchase in limited markets including North America, China, Russia, and the Middle East. The HST has an updated exterior and other interior touches to set it apart.
On the outside, it gets Stealth Pack lighting that has non-reflective surrounds. It also gets a black roof and a new roof spoiler. Standard wheels are 21-inch with a dark satin grey finish. Buyers scan also get optional 22-inch Stealth alloy wheels. The Range Rover Sport HST will be available to order starting in April with pricing announced later in the year.
David Mitchell, Vehicle Programme Director Range Rover Sport, said: “The HST extends our Range Rover Sport line-up giving customers even greater choice. Sitting between the existing 340PS Range Rover Sport 3.0-litre V6 supercharged and the 550PS supercharged variant, it delivers enhanced V6 performance to go with Range Rover Sport’s renowned comfort and refinement.”
