Some bullet points of what's new...

Daytime Running Lights
For 2020 the daytime running light feature will only illuminate the front LED Signature DRL. All other lights will remain off unless headlights are activated. Note Previous model years the tail lights would also illuminate with DRL activation.

Gesture Sunblind
Due to low usage and negative feedback from inadvertent activation this feature has been removed from 2020 Range Rover Sport.

Gesture Tailgate
The gesture feature has been removed from the SE model for 2020. If desired it is available as a stand alone feature.

Rear Seat Entertainment
Based on retailer / customer feedback we now have the CD/DVD player as a required feature when Rear Seat Entertainment is selected.

P400 HST
The HST with P400 Ingenium 6 cylinder engine will continue through the 2020 model year maintaining the same standard equipment and optional features.

Carbon Fiber Exterior Pack
Due to low volumes of this pack we have removed the feature from the V8 models. Note this pack will still remain available on the P400 HST

Smartphone Pack
Now standard equipment on all Range Rover Sport models. Because of this standardization we have decided to discontinue and remove the InControl Apps from the system.

Auto-Dimming Passenger Side Mirror:
Driver’s side mirror will include the auto dimming feature but passenger side ceases to include this feature. This practice aligns to that adopted by a number of competitor products over recent years.

Electrically Deployable Side Steps
We will now prewire all Range Rover Sports to facilitate the installation process. This will reduce installation times and minimize the amount of interior panels that need to be removed during installation.

New Badging Strategy
Starting with 2020 model year Range Rover Sport will receive the new cross carline badging strategy first seen on the Range Rover Velar. This includes the “SPORT” remaining in place and the powertrain and trim level badge being placed below.

Also affected by this change are V8 variants. The “Supercharged” badge currently used on V8 models will no longer be used. V8 (non Autobiography or SVR) vehicles will be equipped with a “P525 HSE” badge on the tailgate. The chart below outlines how the new badges will be applied the lineup.

New Metallic Paint Colors
Loire Blue & Corris Grey are metallic paint colors that have been on the Land Rover palette for several years. They are colors that provide a great look, but do not deliver the latest technology in paint. For 2020 model year we will introduce Portofino Blue & Eiger Grey which deliver the latest paint technology in terms of visuals and light shift, while maintaining similar colors for the Land Rover palette.

Black Exterior Pack & Black Wheels
At 20MY we will introduce a new Gloss Black Wheel to the lineup while also making the Black
Exterior Pack available to the HSE trim level on all powertrains.
We do acknowledge the previous model year’s constraint on black wheels and believe that the
introduction of this new black wheel along with the adjustment of existing wheel offerings will
resolve these constraints.
− With the introduction of the P400 HST model at 19.5MY we brought in a new unique optional wheel 22” ‘Style 5086’. (Previously HSE Dynamic would option to ‘Style 9012’).
− The highly constrained 22” ‘Style 9012’ wheel is now offered only on V8 models.
− With the 20MY introduction of 22” ‘Style 5004’ Gloss Black wheel we expect this will relieve our constraints on black wheels.

Not too many material changes from the 2019.5 models. The rear badging strategy is a bit silly with the "P525 HSE" and so forth, but other manufacturers (Audi for instance) are doing similar things with the rear badging and nonsensical alphanumeric designations. Why doesn't the SVR get a "P575" badge? `)

It's kind of funny that they removed the gesture sunblind after they highlighted it so much in brochures and promotional videos.

The gesture sunblind is actually one of the coolest features in the RRS. Glad I ordered a 2019.5 instead of waiting for a 2020.

It takes as much effort to do the gesture as it is to just press the open sunroof button. They come up with everything don’t they?

The idea with gestures is that you don't have to look, you don't have to take your eyes off the road to operate something.

This is huge for those of us that live in a city with bike lanes and heavy pedestrian traffic. It is nearly impossible to see bikers or pedestrians at night with the auto dimming mirrors in the current gen and there is no way to turn them off or otherwise disable them.

if only it worked as intended... I find myself waving frantically ALOT, and then sunshade not frequently. and then, I'll push the button, and it works every time
