2015 New York International Auto Show: 2016 Land Rover Range Rover SVAutobiography and Sport HST

Posted by

Land Rover made two introductions at the New York International Auto Show: The 2016 Range Rover Sport HST and the ultra-exclusive Range Rover SVAutobiography.

What Is It?

The 2016 Range Rover Sport HST is a full-size luxury SUV, but instead of the titanic 550hp V8 engine, it features a Jaguar/Land Rover’s popular 3.0-liter V6 for a more sedate 340hp. The Range Rover SVAutobiography is a $200,000 SUV with the ultimate luxury appointments available.


What Land Rover Is Saying

David Mitchell, Vehicle Program Director Range Rover Sport, said: “The HST extends our Range Rover Sport line-up giving customers even greater choice. Sitting between the existing 340hp Range Rover Sport 3.0-liter supercharged V6 and the 550hp supercharged variant, it delivers enhanced V6 performance to go with the renowned comfort and refinement of the Range Rover Sport.”


What’s New for 2016?

  • New Range Rover Sport HST trim
  • New Range Rover SVAutobiography trim
  • SVAutobiography replaces the Autobiography Black at the top of the Range Rover line
  • 40hp and 41-lb.ft. increase over lesser supercharged Range Rover trims
  • Unique exterior design enhancements.
  • Exclusive premium leather interior
  • Unique trim finishes


When Does It Go On Sale?

The Range Rover Sport HST and the SVAutobiography goes on sale in the fall of 2015.
