After the release of the latest-generation Range Rover, the all-new 2023 Range Rover Sport now makes its debut to give buyers a sportier yet greener drive.
Now on its third iteration, the Range Rover Sport shares a good number of cues and bits with its upscale brother. The styling, for instance, takes its cue from the Range Rover, albeit with its very own set of Daytime Running Lights and other exterior bits. The styling is so smooth that it nets a drag coefficient of just 0.29.
Inside, a 13.7-inch interactive display greets the driver while a 13.1-inch curved infotainment screen takes care of entertainment and connectivity duties. It’s got wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to boot, as well as Land Rover’s very own Pivi Pro interface.
Riding on the British luxury marque’s MLA-Flex platform that likewise underpins the Range Rover, buyers can choose from a host of powertrain options. First up are a pair of mild hybrids with turbocharged inline-6 engines with the P360 SE making 355 bhp and 369lb-ft of torque, and the P400 SE Dynamic putting out 395bhp and 406lb-ft of twist.
Then there is the P440e Autobiography. This is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that combines a 105kw electric motor and 31.8kWh battery with the turbocharged straight-6 to produce 434bhp and 619lb-ft of torque. It can even go up to 77kms on pure electric power.
But for those who want a truly sporty Range Rover Sport, there is the P530 First Edition that uses a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 producing 523bhp and 553lb-ft of torque, allowing it to go from 0-100km/h in just 4.3 seconds using Dynamic Launch Control.
Either way, each of these models gets Land Rover’s 7.3-degree four-wheel steering, Dynamic Air Suspension, e-speed automatic, and all-wheel drive.
Land Rover is now taking orders for the 2023 Land Rover Range Rover Sport.
