First of all, we can expect the electrified powertrain, but besides that, we can expect some slight changes in the exterior and interior design.

This is the right page for you if you want to learn something more about this model, and if you want to find out what changes you can expect.
2018 Range Rover Sport Plug-in Hybrid Redesign
It is certain that we can expect some slight differences from the outside compared to the previous model. However, there is no so many official information about that and everything here is based on the rumors, and on our ability to notice differences trough the camo. What we can see from the spy photos are different headlights as well as a bit different front and rear bumpers. However, these changes are only certain changes. Everything else is based on rumors, but at this point, we don’t have so many reliable information.
It seems that everything else from the outside remains the same as before. In general, this model will keep all the important exterior and interior features. Some of the standard exterior features will include 19 X 9-inch aluminum wheels with 5-spoke design, P255/50R19 tires. Also, there are Clearcoat Paint, Body-Colored Bumpers, Body-Colored Door Handles, Body-Colored Door Handles, Aluminum Panels, Lip Spoiler, Deep Tinted Glass, LED Brakelights, Rear Fog Lamps, and many others as well.
Range Rover Sport Plug-in Hybrid 2018 Interior
More interesting fact is that the British automaker covered the interior design as well. The whole dashboard is wrapped in the camo which certainly means that we can expect some changes inside. However, we don’t know which changes are provided. Some of the standard interior features in the previous Ranger Rover Sport, and probably in this one will include Range Rover Audio System, satellite and HD Radio, 8 speakers, 10.2″ touchscreen, Bluetooth phone connectivity. Furthermore, there will be 2 LCD Monitors in the front, Front Bucket Seats, 14-way seats, Modern Air Condition (dual-zone), adaptive cruise control. Of course, the newly model will provide some system upgrade, infotainment system definitely.

Engine and Performance
The spotted prototype is probably powered by the plug-in hybrid powertrain, and the same case we can expect with the future model. However, some details about this powertrain are not known. According to some previous rumors, maybe we can expect Ingenium four-cylinder 2.0-liter gasoline engine with the 296 horsepower. The same rumors suggest that we can anticipate ZF eight-speed automatic transmission system. Also, the electric motor is rumored to have 201 horsepower and torque of 332 pound-feet. At this point, the capacity of the battery pack is unknown, but rumors suggest that we can expect between 20 and 30 miles range only on electric power.
