  • 2018 Range Rover update LEAKED on video

And with good reason.

Land Rover has remained typically quiet about its Discovery Sport updates, but the car's production life cycle suggests it'll launch next year.

The new Range Rover plug-in hybrid is known as the P400e. At the rear the bumper has been restyled and now integrates the exhaust tailpipes. Buyers can choose from six new alloy wheel designs and two new paint colours. The Range Rover in the video is a long-wheelbase model in a four-seat layout with a large centre console at the back in between the two rear seats, though the standard wheelbase model will continue.

Range Rover says the new headlights are more energy efficient and "designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle", while accompanying standard features include automatic on/off, signature LED daytime-running lights and powered washers.

And there is the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system with twin high-definition touchscreen controls. While Land Rover says the system has been created to be intuitive to operate, we've found the lower screen distracting to use on the move in the Velar.

The Range Rover Sport should be the better-handling of the two P400es when it comes to on-road driving.

Some of the tweaks coming for the new year include improved seats with extended adjustability, additional cabin power outlets, and a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot.

First seen on the Jaguar F-Pace SUV, the Activity Key is a waterproof wristband that locks and unlocks the auto when placed near the second "R" of the boot-based Range Rover badge.

Diesel power is available in both 190kW 3.0-litre TDV6 and 250kW 4.4-litre TDV8 guises, while there's also a 3.0-litre supercharged petrol V6 with 280kW.

The freshest face in the updated Range Rover line-up is the new P400e variant, which is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) replacing the previous model's diesel-electric hybrid offering.

In electric-only mode, the Sport's range is just 31 miles, and is capable of a claimed 101mpg and 64g/km of CO2.

There is a save function that prevents the battery charge dropping below a pre-selected level.There is a charging time of 2 hours and 45 minutes for the batteries.

The Range Rover PHEV, to be known as the P400e, will have an electric drive range of up to 51 kilometres and can be charged overnight with just a domestic power supply. And there is an enormous 640Nm of torque (pulling power). The rest of the updated Range Rover lineup is now available for order. At that price, the Range Rover is also significantly more expensive than both the Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne; although, as with most high-end cars, the vast array of personalisation and equipment options on offer will likely push that price further upwards.

The visual differences to the facelifted Range Rover are subtle enough, but they're also numerous.

In the market for a luxury SUV? The electric motor not only will reduce emissions and fuel consumption, but it'll also give the Evoque a short electric-only range.

The Porsche Cayenne is the sort of auto you buy with your heart, because it's great to drive.

Other than the P400e and SVAutobiography, engine choices for the Range Rover are largely unchanged from the outgoing model.
