The entry-level model starts at $84,350.
For the 2023 model year, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport will be in its third generation. The Sport has fresh interior and exterior appearance, however many of the Sport’s features were originally seen in the fifth-generation Range Rover in 2022.
Fresh Design, Familiar Underpinnings
The design of the Range Rover Sport is inspired by the ordinary Range Rover, with flush door handles and sleek styling, but that’s where the similarities end. The Sport is given a unique front and back fascia by Land Rover. The Sport’s daytime running lights are the thinnest Land Rover has ever installed on a vehicle, and the SUV sports a drag coefficient of 0.29.
The Sport is built on Land Rover’s MLA-Flex platform, which also underpins the 2022 Range Rover. As a result, several of the Sport’s chassis elements, such as the 7.3-degree all-wheel steering, are shared. The Sport comes equipped with Land Rover’s Dynamic Air Suspension.
The new Sport is available with two mild-hybrid turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six engines. The P360 SE produces 355 horsepower (264 kW) and 369 pound-feet (500 Newton-meters) of torque, whereas the P400 SE Dynamic produces 395 hp (294 kW) and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm).
|Model||Powertrain||Horsepower||Torque||Price (After $1,350 Destination Charge)|
|P360 SE||Mild-Hybrid Turbo 3.0L I6||355 HP (264 KW)||369 LB-FT (500 NM)||$84,350|
|P400 SE Dynamic||Mild-Hybrid Turbo 3.0L I6||395 HP (294 KW)||406 LB-FT (550 NM)||$91,350|
|P440e Autobiography||Plug-In Hybrid Turbo 3.0L I6||434 HP (323 KW)||619 LB-FT (839 NM)||$105,550|
|P530 First Edition||Twin-Turbo 4.4L V8||523 HP (390 KW)||553 LB-FT (750 NM)||$122,850|
The P440e Autobiography, a plug-in hybrid with a turbo 3.0-liter engine, sits above the rest of the lineup. This variant has 434 horsepower (323 kW) and torque of 619 lb-ft (839 Nm). The PHEV’s 105-kilowatt electric motor and 31.8-kilowatt-hour battery, according to Land Rover, will provide an estimated 48 miles of all-electric range. In 5.5 seconds, the plug-in can reach 60 miles per hour (100 kilometres per hour).
The P530 First Edition is the best option for those looking for the most power. It has a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 523 horsepower (390 kW) and 553 pound-feet (750 Nm) of torque. With Dynamic Launch activated, the top-tier SUV accelerates to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds.
Each engine pairs with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive. A pure-electric variant arrives in 2024 alongside an all-electric Range Rover.
Stepping inside the 2023 Range Rover Sport should feel familiar. The new Sport adopts the interior layout from the 2022 Range Rover, but there are some distinct differences between the two. The Sport’s infotainment screen, a high-resolution floating curved display, sits at an angle, just above a repositioned IP stack and center console. The 13.1-inch screen hosts Land Rover’s Pivi Pro infotainment software.
Sitting in front of the driver is a 13.7-inch Interactive Driver Display. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, both wireless, are standard, and there’s even 15-watt wireless charging. Land Rover’s Electrical Vehicle Architecture 2.0 allows the company to update 63 electronic modules via over-the-air updates. Sound comes from Meridian, with the top-of-the-line Meridian Signature Sound System boasting 29 speakers.
The First Edition is a special configuration Land Rover will only offer during the model’s first year of production. It arrives with the Stormer Handling Package that includes Land Rover’s Dynamic Response Pro, all-wheel steering, and the electronic active differential.
Land Rover will produce the 2023 Range Rover Sport at its Solihull Manufacturing Facility in the UK. The Sport is available to order now. The company hasn’t announced its on-sale date.
