Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


2022 MY of the Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR is no different. The latest iteration continues to embrace its modernity and oneness with aplomb with no changes from the outgoing model. Its agility and versatility have you awestruck and the range-topping Carbon Edition is your go-to option for improved performance and aesthetic design cues. At a base price of $115,500, it continues to compete with the likes of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 and BMW X5 M, the only other SUVs in the segment that can match the prowess of the Range Rover Sport SVR.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Features

The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR is available in two different trims. While the feature load sees minimum differences, the distinction between the two lies in the interior and exterior design and performance due to the unapologetic use of carbon fiber with the top-tier Carbon-Edition that is priced at $130,000.

As standard, the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR makes use of a supercharged V8 engine and is channeled as four-wheel-drive variants only. Some of its class-leading features like auto-leveling headlights, a navigation system, and three-zone climate control with front and rear air-conditioning. It borrows a number of features from the ultra-premium Range Rover Vogue and some of its other exclusive trim-wise specifications include:

Both trims of the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR are curated to deliver powerful performance from the available supercharged engine. While they are essentially similar in build and feature load, the Carbon Edition could be the better option amongst the two. Though it is priced higher, the use of carbon fiber on the hood, engine cover, and through a number of elements on the body, add to the designing excellence. Its reduced curb weight aids in performance and the use of 22-inch alloy wheels when coupled with standard 4WD setup ensure that ride quality and off-roading capabilities are only enhanced.

Release Date

The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR is available for sale in the market. You can choose either of the aforementioned trims, alongside several variants in which the Range Rover Sport is otherwise available.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Engine and Performance

The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR is a force to reckon with. It features a 5.0L supercharged V8 engine that delivers impeccable performance figures and the linearity in its acceleration is praiseworthy. It churns out 575hp of power and 516lb.-ft of torque, making it one of the more powerful SUVs in the segment.

The 2022 Range Rover Sport SVR comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, as standard with command shift feature, and is equipped with paddle shifters for an enhanced riding experience. Being a 4WD variant, all the power that the engine produces is transferred to the four wheels of the SUV, which allow it to manage improved and sturdier ride quality.

In the 0 to 60 mph, Land Rover claims that the SUV can clock 4.3 seconds, which is impressive keeping in mind the dimensions and sheer weight of the vehicle. While the quarter-mile timings are not yet known, its top speed of 176 MPH puts it in a similar ballpark as its competitors. Though final confirmations regarding the performance potential of the top-tier are yet to be made, the 2022 Range Rover Sport SVR Carbon Edition is expected to be quicker due to its reduced curb weight.

When it comes to driving and handling, the 2022 Sport SVR is streets ahead of its competitors. You never seem to be driving a gigantic SUV, credit to its sharp handling qualities and a precise steering system that are immensely responsive to driver inputs. The 21/22-inch wheels with a four-wheel drivetrain and adaptive suspension help induce an element of versatility, both on- and off the road. Press your foot onto the pedal and the SUV throttles forward but pushes you back into the seats giving you a true-blue sports-car-like feel.

Amongst the competitors, both the BMW X5M and Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 feature V8 engine options and an AWD setup.While the BMW uses a similar transmission unit as the Land Rover, it is the Mercedes-AMG that is the most distinct and uses a 9-speed automatic setup. It is also the most powerful vehicle in the segment and produces 603hp and 627lb.-ft of torque. On the other hand, the 2021 X5M manages only three lesser horses of power, but its torque value is considerably lower.

However, surprisingly, both competitors of the Range Rover Sport SVR perform appreciably and clock better timings. While the 60mph is tied at 3.7 seconds, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 pushes through the mid-range and emerges victorious in the quarter-mile run recording 11.9 seconds.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Fuel Economy

The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is largely efficient despite housing a cogent powertrain that vaunts brute power and sheer performance. Its fuel efficiency is rated at 15 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway. Combined its averages 16 miles per gallon of fuel. While its range is not yet known, the frugal nature of the SUV will also be reflective in the distance it can cover and, in all probability, we expect it to be higher than the competitors, given it features the largest fuel tank that can hold 27.5-gallons of fuel.

While the SVR’s efficiency is praiseworthy considering its potential, the base Range Rover Sport has higher efficiency. While the plug-in-hybrid P400e was the real tree-hugger in the lot, it has been discontinued the 2022 MY.

However, both competitors feature smaller fuel tanks and amongst the two the AMG has a better range at 337 and 427 miles in the city and on the highway, respectively.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Interior

The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR’s cabin is an epitome of luxury and a cohesive unification of athleticism and refinement. It reflects the bespoke engineering that goes into the curation of an inch-perfect SUV that features a large number of standard specifications, modern technological amenities, and limitless comfort creatures. It’s a proper SUV on the inside with the heightened dash and adequately placed seats that give a commanding view of the road ahead.

The 2022 Sport SVR sports a commodious cabin that has ample space on the inside and you don’t feel cramped or devoid of essential head-, shoulder-, or legroom. Whether your SUV will seat five or seven passengers, will depend solely on the configuration you opt for. Irrespective, comfort is top-notch. The seats feel relaxing and pleasant with adequate bolstering and cushioning to them and the option of heating and ventilation only adds to the experience. The leather upholstery and the Alcantara inserts feel rather premium. The availability of rear-seat entertainment, air conditioning, and dedicated USB ports are suggestive of the brand’s ability to prioritize the comfort of all passengers.

However, it is not just the standard features that make the Range Rover, a viable proposition. Its extensive list of optional packages adds to the existing pleasure inside the car. Land Rover provides the 2022 Sport SVR an option of both deployable and standard cabin steps for easy ingress and egress. However, if quirk is your thing, we’d recommend lowering the electronic suspension to allow easy access to the cabin. For a more performance-dedicated setup, the Carbon Edition seems to be the right choice. While feature difference is rather minimal, the top-tier trim adds carbon fiber inserts through the dash, central console, and across other parts of the cabin.

The 2021 BMW X5M and Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 can seat five passengers only. While the third row of the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR isn’t the most spacious, its availability, even as optional, gives it an advantage over its competitors. The 2021 AMG GLE 63 has the most space for both front and rear-seat passengers. Though it is diminutively better than the BMW and Land Rover, its contemporaries also feel luxurious. When analyzing the trunk space, the 2021 BMW X5 and Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 are better performers and manage 33.9 and 33.3 cubic feet, respectively.

Some of the standout interior features of the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR include:

  • Auto sunblind
  • Leather-wrapped heated steering wheel
  • Interior Air Filtration
  • Four-zone Climate Control (optional)
  • 16-Way Powered Driver and Passenger Seats
  • Sport Front seats
  • Multi-level heated rear seats
  • Rear Airconditioning

How intuitive is the infotainment system of the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR?

The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR carries forward the infotainment system from the previous year’s model. It still features two 10-inch touchscreen units dedicated to infotainment and climate controls, respectively. While the Touch-pro duo in-car system feels intuitive, the dual-screen setup does feel confusing and has a steep learning curve to it. But the availability of an extensive list of features including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth connectivity make up for its flaws. For the rear-seat occupants, Land Rover also provides rear-seat display units, and the current iteration moves to USB type C for second-row seats.

Some of the standout infotainment features of the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport include:

  • Steering-mounted controls
  • Voice recognition and commands
  • USB Connection
  • Wi-fi Hotspot
  • Mobile High-Definition Link
  • 19-speaker Meridien Sound System
  • Sirius XM Satellite Radio

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Exterior

With no changes to the design, the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR continues to be the prepossessing and enticing SUV that commands a beefy and brawny road presence when on the go. Its muscularity is reflective in its design upfront with its modern lamps and a rather smallish grille for its class. The air outlets look aerodynamic and a rear spoiler adds depth to the overall design.

For those who want a sportier-looking SUV, the Carbon edition that costs almost $15,000 above the base variant, looks impressively appealing. It adds carbon fiber inserts to the hood and engine cover and also causes a reduction in the curb weight. The 2022 Range Rover Sport SVR is one of the larger SUVs in the segment. It is 192.4 inches long, 87.4 inches wide, and 71 inches tall. While its ground clearance is not yet known, the SUV performs impressively over uneven terrains. Its wheelbase at 115.4 inches, ensures higher space on the inside, yet the third row feels constrained anyhow.

In comparison, the 2021 BMW X5M is the heaviest SUV weighing 5,425 lbs, while the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 is lighter at a curb weight of 5,203 lbs.

In terms of design, the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 looks ultra-modern and its contemporary nature that includes razor-sharp and defined curves and lines look particularly impressive. While the BMW X5 is visually pleasing, the 2022 MY is expected to see some updates to the fascia, allowing it to be striking than before.

  • Integrated Rear Spoiler

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Safety

The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR is based on a unibody platform and makes use of rigid aluminum steel for maximum safety and reliability. In addition, it features best-in-class safety specifications that include but are not limited to a surround-view camera, tire-pressure monitoring system, and emergency brake assist. Given its exclusivity, the SUV has not yet been tested by NHTSA or IIHS. While the basic safety suite is comprehensive, buyers can also opt for optional packages like a Driver Assistance Package.

Some other standard and optional safety features include:

  • Blind-spot monitor
  • Cross-traffic Alert
  • Seatbelt Pretensioners
  • Daytime Running Lights
  • Lane-Departure and Lane Keeping Assist

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Competition

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR vs 2021 BMW X5M

The 2021 BMW X5M is a German vehicle you can trust any day of the year. It’s utterly reliable with a warranty policy that is comprehensive and multi-faceted. It features a cogent engine option that is one of the most powerful units in the market and manages better acceleration timings than the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV.

While the interior design and comfort of both vehicles are comparable, the Range Rover is streets ahead when fuel efficiency is concerned. In addition to its striking design that looks all the more visually appealing with the Carbon Package, the Sport SVR features an optional third row of seating. Amongst the two, the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover SVR with its optional packages, customization options, and a suite of safety features seems to be the better option in the segment but is a tad bit expensive.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR vs 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 is an embodiment of the Super SUV segment. It’s quick, exhilarating, and with the recent design, changes make it look on par with other premium and ostentatious vehicles. The AMG GLE 63 is hands down the quickest and fastest in the segment, without compromising even an iota of efficiency. On the inside, it’s the brand’s tryst to provide the best-in-class experience by offering hi-tech features as standard and the much-acclaimed MBUX infotainment system.

While some might find the design a bit overwhelming, we feel it fits well in the segment and especially against the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR with which it is closely related due to their diminutively differing dimensions. While the Land Rover and Mercedes-AMG are the closest competitors in the segment in a majority of aspects, the final buying decision will depend on the factors like value for money and everyday viability, where we feel the Range Rover Sport SVR will assert its dominance.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Final Verdict

The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR falls in line with other SUVs in the segment by being brawny and beefy with oozing muscularity. It resonates with an upmarket aura that though not hard to find in the segment, is a notch above its competitors. By being essentially unchanged, 2022 MY, continues to be a serious performer with agile driving dynamics and abundant off-roading potential.

While the latest iteration does suffer from flaws like a smallish trunk, it manages to strike the perfect balance between practicality and usability. Its engine feels in its natural element when pushed to its maximum level and the comfort that the ventilated and adjustable seats bestow only adds to its value. By unifying athleticism with a plush experience, the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SUV is a confluence to behold.
