Is the 2019 Range Rover Sport HST P400 worth the PRICE?



hey guys what's up its Joe Reddy from Reddy's rise I'm here at Dimmit landrover in Clearwater Florida and we have our first another first here I'm ready to rise we have a 2019 Range Rover Sport HST so let's talk a little bit about Land Rover Land Rover is such an iconic British mark making those SUVs before they were even called SUVs all the way back so many decades ago and now with the Range Rover lineup the first time that a Range Rover ever existed was 1970 that first generation Range Rover went from 1970 all the way to 1994 fast forward to the 21st century the Range Rover has really come into its own has a lot of great features and you'll see underneath this hood there are some surprises with a straight-6 with some hybrid electric motor technology in there that's going to help ramp things up but let's go ahead and dive into this 2019 Range Rover Sport HST this is all new for 2019 love what the Range Rover I love how the Range Rover has these headlight housings very unique you know we tend to forget about the British brands we're always going German but very very futuristic LED the daytime running lamps everything just very you know stand out when it comes to style as we come down you'll see full functional venting both up front and side air curtains as well and then look at these very slim lights that they have in the bottom portion here really nice as we go across the grill area I like the way it says Range Rover my problem is just like many other SUVs that we've had on radius rides I don't like the emblems I wish that these were sunken into the hood gloss black there's that famous Land Rover badge so much history so much tradition in that British green that's what that powers all about is British green and then as we come down more gloss finish here I think I would like to see a little bit different material because I think that over time this is going to not we're the greatest but right now brand-new it looks great of course this character line that goes from one side of the other very nicely placed as we come across the front just very nice from one side to the other as we come around the corner here check it out massive wheels massive massive calipers so I love the gloss black finish this is a 22 inch wheel check out the size of that caliper with the Land Rover badge bright red with the gloss black with the gray works perfect fully ventilated huge pizza style rotors this thing can fit the family but it's also going to perform well as we go down the side you do have the traditional venting now this is I am gonna Zonk it is just for looks but this is part of the Range Rover tradition there are heat extractors up on the top of the hood and what's nice is is I like the way it says Range Rover stamped into it as we continue down the side very smart the black out the a pillar here really helps kind of keep the size when it comes to perspective the way you're you're perceiving it keeps the size a little bit tidy very nice black on the mirrors LED turn signals nice flat slope back roof style I really think that that is like a trademark on the Range Rover another nice part that I like is the lower so area comes out just enough gives us some distinctive body line to the side of the vehicle and then as we work our way back this right here screams Range Rover you go back to those early generations you have this large quarter window I like the way they took the gloss black to just make it seem seamless from front to rear and then the round out the rear very nicely done roof spoiler now this thing is functional you can see that there's actual slot for air to pass down very nice and then traditional back setup once again they have the emblems I wish they would kind of sink those into the back hatch area but you have your Land Rover badge full LED lighting there's the sport HST this is the top dog most power that you're going to get and then you have I'm gonna Zonk it that vacuum style exhaust outlet and then what makes it even worse is that there's an exhaust pipe in that fake vacuum style vent out the back but very clean very nice screams Range Rover screams Land Rover all day long while we go ahead and pop the hood and see some of those surprises that I've been talking about let's go check it out all right guys here we are underneath the hood of the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HST I am gonna Zonk it right off the bat don't like the black plastic especially when it looks like it's made by Rubbermaid I don't like that but underneath there is a straight 6-3 litre straight-six inline 6 engine turbocharged made it to an 8-speed automatic transmission this one is the p400 version so you have 395 horsepower 406 foot-pounds of torque going through that 8-speed automatic reaching the ground through an sophisticated all-wheel drive system this vehicle weighs about 5600 pounds but here's a crazy thing 0 to 60 in 5.9 seconds top speed 140 miles an hour so very very impressive the technology that they're getting the power that they're getting added this all-new straight-6 turbocharged engine let's go ahead we talked about it we looked at the numbers let's go ahead and fire it up alright guys we're inside the 2019 Range Rover Sport HS T if you're wondering hey Joe this thing's new what's the price on this you're looking at an MSRP the way it sits around 93 thousand dollars let's see what you get – the door panels now the British definitely know upscale feel I love the soft leather material all over the top portion of the door the nice silver trim you have that other aluminum finish there very nicely done the armrest is very very soft leather material large speaker cover small tweeter covers really just hit the nail on the head from taking a door that could be just boring and giving it some pizzazz I love the material where it says HST across the center portion here you have your glovebox there you have another box there so when you have a vehicle like this you get to have two four tons of gloves as we go into the center console infotainment area this is nuts I've never seen anything like this before so you have a nice large 12 inch screen here nice and wide you got your navigation it's all touchscreen of course you could go back home very very quickly but I do like the features on that very smooth very nice leather push button start aluminum trim the finishes are just crazy in here as we come down look at this AC system now this is just ridiculous you have full touchscreen down here dual climate control you can change up everywhere you want to put just by touching the actual images you want to do vehicle stuff you hit vehicle you got all your different dynamics eco mode you have dynamic mode comfort everything that you could want for when you need it so comfort obviously you have you could go into snow mode off-road grass this thing does it all because really that's where land rover cut its teeth is severe off-road conditions as we come down nice finish all over you got this sliding lid here too holder's a little bit of a cubby quaint ray here maybe you can put a couple skittles or something like that you slide it back I like the trim the land rover badge look at this Alcantara on the actual shifter this is gonna be controlling that 8-speed automatic this I'm gonna Zonk I don't like the plastic finish on these buttons I feel like they could have picked a different material but you do have a plethora of buttons right here electric ebrake and then center console look at this this is just ridiculous so you have two USB you get a micro sim port there you got your 12 volt all felt lined this little lid here drop that down flip it around nice leather and then the seats I gotta give it to the seats Alcantara love the leather love the perforated down the center the stitching I mean this is really high-class level of fit finish and feel I'm 6 feet tall even with this panoramic sunroof no problem whatsoever for Headroom and I feel very very comfortable now if you notice look what we got we have the armrests but then they also give you these extra captain chair things which you could tighten down and then have to place your arm there or you could just put it back I personally would probably just leave it back because I just I'm ready to go speaking of going why don't you coming over to the business end and I'll show you behind the wheel of this Range Rover alright guys business hand behind the wheel let's see what we're working with so lots of adjustability when it comes to full power seat I love the aluminum trim down here I would like these buttons to feel a little nicer if you look at any German products this is where it feels really nice doesn't feel so nice on this Range Rover steering wheel if you like unique this is all for you it's thin and it has this extra trim and I'm a little worried with how this silver trim is gonna bother me when we go for the drive but it is Alcantara wrapped nice leather horn button and then you have the switches on the side but just very unique the style and the feel of them you have the paddles behind the steering wheel to go up and down the gearbox that 8-speed automatic and then of course you have full digit instrumentation something expected at this price point very clear very concise when you go into like dynamic mode let me hit dynamic mode real quick when you go into dynamic mode it actually changes looking at that's pretty cool so I'm in comfort let me go over to dynamic here dynamic you see how the gauges change a little bit the the style I can see I like the way the Range Rover Sport pops up pretty cool overall very impressed with how I feel in here let's go ahead and see how are the passengers gonna feel in that back seat alright guys back seat time and I'm telling you the leather in here is as soft as a newborn baby's but I really like the leather that they use they even brought the Alcantara back here for the passenger so your passengers are not gonna get jealous that they don't have Alcantara what is up with this hard plastic on the back of the seat really this needs to be all wrapped in leather I do like the way they brought the silver trim from the center console to the back command area you do have your AC vents back here that controls and then of course if you have passengers back here you know that you're gonna want to keep them happy and keep their stuff charged so tons of different connectivity this I can never understand can we stop making these plugs and just have a little door here because that you know this is gonna get lost your kids are gonna lose it so I guess that's the cubby for that but we'll just keep that in their seats they do recline so you could go like this and you could drive down the road and feel uncomfortable but seriously you could recline it lots of headspace Headroom back here panoramic feels good I got LED lighting which is a nice little fancy touch let's talk about whoa look at this thing boom two cupholders they got that brushed aluminum feel in there open that up you can put some pretzels you can put some I don't know about Doritos probably if you go to readers go with like smaller ones or something but you got a little tray this will pop out if you want to pop out we don't want to pop out because we'll probably lose it but actually quite soft just interesting how they design this it's fascinating but it works and then you got like a little bumper up front for your elbow you go boom like that and put it back love the finishes let's go ahead and check out that back cargo area and see what we could put in the back of a Range Rover Sport alright guys that back cargo time very important for somebody who needs an SUV obviously power assist lift look at all the stuff you get got a nice little Land Rover bag you know you could go around and be like what do you got I got a Land Rover no but seriously in here this has got a wheel cleaning kit 22 inch wheels you're gonna need to keep them clean Land Rover loves you you bought one of their vehicles they give you a nice little cleaning kit we got all different sorts of weather protected floor mats look at all the space now and all the amount of stuff in here you know that there's room back here we could raise and lower watch this you could raise and lower the back of this thing I don't know if you could catch that on film Tom look at that up she goes up up up and away and then if you want to go down it is it the down button nice that's what I'm talking about right very nice set up back here you got power source now see look they gave me the 12-volt back here but they have a nice little flip lid why can't they do that in the middle row I don't know what's up with that but really nice those seats are gonna do the 60/40 split which is really good for usability and of course you got a nice cargo mat and everything down there nicely set up and then when you're done you just hit that button down she goes and you're ready to go to the next soccer game but while we go ahead and take this for a spin and see if we can find a local baseball game or a soccer game to go visit let's go take it for a spin alright guys we just left damnit Range Rover here in Clearwater Florida or in the 2019 Range Rover Sport like I was showing you earlier it's incredible the layout in here I love everywhere you look there's just all these nice finishes that just really raised the bar in this say of the SUV car industry and if you want something that is gonna have that special British feel this is what it's all about and it's crazy to think that Range Rover that first Range Rover rolling off the assembly line all the way back in 1970 boy have we've come a long way when it comes to how the SUV is looked at how it's used and especially the performance from Range Rovers especially this one real great visibility out the front I actually really impressed with the size of the windshield let me go ahead and get on the throttle here pull away I'm telling you the shifts very quick I like the overall feel of how this car transfers the power to the ground and what's nice is is that you get off the throttle and you're not feeling a lot of engine braking or anything like that it's nice it just it's nice and smooth and it transitions very linear – so crystal clear love the font love the colors and I really think it's so smart how more and more manufacturers are moving to where the navigation is smack dab in the center of the other instrumentation that's there really allows you to focus where you need to be going and that's that's out the front windshield over here when it comes to the center console infotainment section area they've really brought that far way up and I think a lot of car companies are now gonna be chasing after Range Rover with this set up AC controls and everything else the way that it's laid out in the car but really just like the overall feel of how this sport drives doesn't feel too big it feels almost just spot right perfect seats the bottom portion is a little on the firmer side but you know what I do like the back portion especially with the side bolstering it allows you to kind of have a little bit of wiggle wiggle room so that you're comfortable but this thing once you start going and especially if you have a twisty road around your neck of the woods it's gonna hold you into place a lot nicer than a lot of its competitors at this price point but just very smooth of course it's gonna be so quiet in here with all the great sound ending that Range Rover uses and just like a lot of the other cars that are offered at the different Dimmit locations that we visited this you're driving tradition you're driving a heritage that goes all the way back for that first generation all the way back to 1970 remember first generation a Range Rover was 1972 1994 and now here we are in the brand-new 2019 Range Rover Sport what can I say I mean I just love how this car drives steering wheel so unique it's got the Alcantara on it I like the way it feels the thickness is nice and you would think that maybe that the silver trim would be a little uncomfortable it's really not changing lanes is real simple you get on the throttle she pulls away very nicely this really gives you such a versatile driving experience you got great room back there for your passengers like we showed you earlier and then you have all the space in the back as well cargo wise I think for me you know how I've been talking about how I like to drive a lot of times I like to take my left elbow and rested on the top of the door panel I think Range Rover was thinking about me when they made this door panel because of just how wide it is and how it kind of slopes down to give you just the perfect resting area for your arm so I think that was really well done by the engineers and you can see that interior space has been optimized perfectly in this 2019 Range Rover all right guys I went ahead we put it into dynamic mode I'm gonna go ahead and get on that throttle on the breaks into this right-hand turn here on throttle again rolling away drops down she goes you're definitely gonna feel that sensation the acceleration much different in dynamic then in the standard mode and that's what's great about these types of vehicles especially from Range Rover is when you adjust that setting you get the full benefit of a lot more performance not just a little bit it's a lot more performance and just overall feel and that's what's really great so I'll go ahead and slow down a little bit just to show you the acceleration again between the two so we're doing a slow roll at 20 get on the throttle drops down it just goes so very nice to see Range Rover have the versatility to give you different driving modes to increase that whole driving pleasure of what do you want that's the great news if you want to turn up the wick you can with this Range Rover Sport brakes feel great I like the way that the modulation on the brake pedal is they're not very grabby which is nice because sometimes with certain models you get on the brake pedal and they kind of it grabs it right from the bottom of your foot not so much with this Range Rover Sport let me go ahead and see how she handles in this right-hand bent over here so on throttle on brakes doing our braking straight line tipping in on throttle again drops down and we're off I think the performance of this Range Rover Sport is definitely going to surprise you and that's why you need to get down to dim it Range Rover and take one of those for a spin I think from the outside to the inside and everything in between they've really hit the nail on the head and I'm very excited to see where Range Rover is gonna be taking their whole lineup of products but we're gonna go ahead and wrap this one up and we'll see you back at Dimmit Range Rover in a split second all right guys been
