Land Rover has unveiled the 2023 Range Rover Sport and it looks great. The new Range Rover Sport gets many of the same styling cues as the larger Range Rover with some sportier design details.
On the outside the new Range Rover Sport’s design is an evolution of the current generation, but with a smoother look with retractable door handles. At the rear the Range Rover Sport stands out with its narrow taillights and a full-width trim.
The 2023 Range Rover Sport is based on the automaker’s new mixed-metal architecture, which has 35% higher torsional stiffness. Dimensionally, the new Range Rover Sport is longer and wider with a longer wheelbase that provides more interior space. Just like before, there’s only room for five passengers.
Inside the interior is very similar to the larger Range Rover with premium materials. 22-way adjustable seats are available, which also have a massage feature. At the rear there’s 1.2-inches of more legroom. There’s a 13.1-inch infotainment display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There’s also a 13.7-inch digital instrument cluster.
Under the hood there are several powertrains to choose from. The base P360 SE version is powered by a turbocharged mild-hybrid 3.0-liter inline-six with 355 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. The P400 SE Dynamic gets the same engine, but it’s been upgraded with 395 hp and 406 lb-ft.
There’s also the P440e Autobiography plug-in hybrid, which also uses the 3.0-liter inline-six, that’s mated to a 31.8-kilowatt-hour battery pack that gives it up to 48 miles of electric range. The plug-in hybrid powertrain generates 434 hp and 619 lb-ft. A fully electric Range Rover Sport will be introduced in 2024, just like the larger Range Rover.
The most powerful version is the P530 First Edition model, which is powered by a 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 with 523 hp and 553 lb-ft.
The 2023 Range Rover Sport is slated to arrive this fall. The pricing for the P360 SE starts $84,000, while the P400 SE Dynamic starts at $90,000. P440e Autobiography starts at $104,200, while the P530 First Edition starts at $121,500.
