#5 2020 Range Rover Sport & RANGE ROVER SPORT HST SPECIAL EDITION
2020 Range Rover Sport received it last facelift in 2018, so we should not expect it to get any big revisions this year.

#7 2020 Range Rover P400e & 2020 Range Rover Sport P400e
The plugin powertrain could installed on the base, HSE and Autobiography trims of Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, but at least in the US, P400e and Sport P400e are marketed as somewhat independent PHEV models within the lineup.
#8 2020 Range Rover
The crown jewel of Land Rover’s lineup is scheduled to go through a redesign in 2021, and it’s rumored to receive new BMW sourced V-8 and diesel engines as a part of the previously announced cooperation. Pending the facelift, though, the 2020 iteration of the model is due to remain mainly unchanged.
