The Range Rover Sport used to be the "base" Range Rover model, but with the Evoque now in the lineup, it's relieved of those duties. Still, it's not shy about piling on the standard equipment--everything from leather and wood trim, to a navigation system, to a standard Harmon Kardon audio system with 11 speakers and 380 watts of power.
Aside from the difference in engines, the primary differences between the Range Rover Sport HSE and Supercharged are the options. Most of the Supercharged's standard gear is optional on the HSE. However, supercharged versions get red Brembo brake calipers this year, with an option of keeping the stock black ones--for discretion, we suppose.
Upgrades for either model include a rear-seat entertainment system, a beverage cooler, and a wide array of interior individualization. Adaptable air suspension, surround-view cameras, and a choice of alloy wheels are also available, as is a premium audio system with 825 watts of power, 17 speakers, and surround sound.
Other new options introduced for this year include a towing package, now offered across the lineup. It includes a variable rear differential lock that is found on other Range Rover vehicles, and helps keep a tighter rein on axle slippage when off-road driving modes are engaged.
A GT Limited Edition of the supercharged model gets special sport badging, 20-inch wheels, shift paddles, premium audio, and HD radio.
