The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE SUV is going to be a carry-over model of the ongoing model year of the SUV. There will not be many changes in the design language or even the interior of the car. The mechanicals will also remain the same, except for fewer powertrain options this time. The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport lineup will drop the diesel and plug-in hybrid models. However, the mild hybrid system is here to stay.

We recommend

We recommend you to go for the HSE Silver Edition as it has many options for customizations with a wide range of features. This is the reason why most people opt for the base trims. It is worth every penny and would enhance your driving experience. Also, the upper trim level known as the Dynamic is way too expensive as compared to the HSE Silver Edition.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE SUV Engine and Performance

Land Rover is always renowned for its powerful engines and excellent performance. The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE is equipped with a P360 engine configuration, which is a 3.0L Turbocharged inline-6 cylinder engine that produces 355 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque. It is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission which delivers power to all four wheels. This 4WD setup is very important as it maximizes off-road traction which helps to drive in any terrain. It can accelerate from 0-60 in 6.2 seconds, which is not impressive but is sufficient enough to get the job done. 

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE SUV driving view

Land Rovers are always praised for their great handling and ride quality. It is one of the main reasons why people opt for this SUV. The Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE is even crisper because of its smaller size than other Land Rovers. Despite its massive ground clearance, it has managed to get a low center of gravity which reduces the chances of rollover during cornering. Hence, the driver feels very confident around the corners. The steering wheel is very responsive, and the SUV maneuvers effortlessly in sharp bends. The 4WD comes into play during off-roads. Also, the suspensions soak up pretty much every bump on the roads, providing a smooth ride to the passengers.

Here, the Range Rover Sport falls behind its competitors in the 0-60 and quarter-mile race even after having a turbocharged engine. The heavyweight of the car becomes a disadvantage. The Audi Q8 is much faster in the 0-60 race, but the Maserati Levante beats its competition in the quarter-mile race. The low-end torque of the Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE is excellent which does wonders on off-roads. When comparing the price tag, the Range Rover Sport is the most expensive option available.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE SUV Fuel Economy

Having a powerful engine doesn’t stop the 2022 Range Rover Sport from providing good fuel economy. The 3.0L Turbocharged inline-6 cylinder engine provides 19 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway, and 21 mpg of combined fuel economy. The massive 27.6 gallons of fuel tank provides a stellar range of 580 miles between each fuel stop. The fuel economy is way above luxury SUV standards and proves to be a daily driver as well. The massive fuel tank is also a great addition in the Range Rover Sport’s favor.

The Range Rover Sport beats its competition as it has class-leading fuel economy figures. The Maserati Levante, on the other hand, has a poor fuel economy when compared to its competition. The Porsche Cayenne gives tough competition to the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE as it delivers 19 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway, and 20 mpg of combined fuel economy, which is similar to the RR Sport HSE. However, the Porsche Cayenne misses out on the overall range as RR takes the advantage of the largest fuel tank in the segment.
