A sports package is a set of cosmetic and functional enhancements that can be added to a vehicle, sold and priced as a unit.

In an SUV or light truck this may include special racks or tiedowns for transport of off-road recreational vehicles and other equipment.

For a sedan or coupe the package combines elements of the following packages:

  • Performance package - a more powerful motor, perhaps including increased displacement, higher compression, or a turbocharger or supercharger and may include special wheels of light weight
  • Handling package - Harder suspension bushings, enhanced shock absorber, and anti-roll bar. Modern versions typically include special wheels and tires.
  • Trim package - often with bold graphics or special paint colors
  • Special aerodynamic bodywork, often with a chin spoiler, side skirts, and a fixed rear foil or powered flap or spoiler to increase downforce at high speed
