The all-new (2023) Range Rover Sport comes with a refreshed look inside out, a longer wheelbase, and new powertrain options. The all-new Sport SUV comes with a slew of new features like rear-wheel steering, all-new Pivi Pro infotainment with curved touchscreen, dynamic air suspension, adaptive off-road cruise control, etc. For this, the new Range Rover Sport has an asking price of $83,000 which goes up to $121,500 for the range-topping BMW-sourced 523-hp twin-turbo V8 powered First Edition model.

Following the footsteps of its elder sibling the range-topping Land Rover Range Rover, the 2023 Range Rover Sport comes with a new design and significant changes to qualify as an all-new model. Based on the MLA-Flex architecture shared with the all-new Range Rover, the Sport can also get an all-electric version. As per Land Rover, the all-electric Sport SUV could be launched by 2024. But as of now, the Sport will get four trim options namely P360 SE, P400 SE Dynamic, P440e Autobiography, and limited-run P530 First Edition. 

“The exceptional New Range Rover Sport sets new standards as the ultimate sporting luxury SUV, building on seventeen years of unique customer appeal,” said, Thierry Bolloré, Chief Executive Officer, Jaguar Land Rover. “It is the latest embodiment of our vision to create the world's most desirable modern luxury vehicles, effortlessly blending new levels of sustainability with the signature qualities that have made Range Rover Sport so popular."

Each of the four trims also gets four different powertrain options. The P360 and P400 get the same 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system but in the former, it makes 355 hp while in the latter it makes 395 hp. Also, the former powertrain equipped model can do 0-60 MPH in 5.7 seconds while the latter equipped model can do 0-60 MPH in 5.4 seconds as per Land Rover. The P440e is the plug-in hybrid model that makes 434 hp and comes with a 31.8-kWh battery pack. 

The plug-in hybrid Sport SUV offers up to 48 miles of all-electric driving. The plug-in hybrid-powered Sport can go from 0-60 MPH in 5.5 seconds as per Land Rover. While the range-topping P530 gets a BMW-sourced 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that makes 523 hp and is the replacement of the Land Rover’s supercharged V8 engine. The new twin-turbo V8 as per Land Rover can do a 0-60 MPH run in just 4.3 seconds.

The new Sport starts at $83,000, the P400 SE Dynamic trim starts at $90,000, the P440e Autobiography trim starts at $104,200, and the P530 First Edition starts at $121,500. That said, all the models of the Sport come standard with a ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission, all-wheel-drive system, and adaptive air suspension. Also available on the new Sport is rear-wheel steering which can turn the wheels up to 7.3 degrees which improves the maneuverability of the SUV whose wheelbase has now grown by 3 inches. 

Apart from these the SUV also got a design change. Starting with the front the headlights and the grille are now slimmer and the front overhang has shortened. Along with that, the overall front fascia is now smoother allowing the SUV to have a drag coefficient of just 0.29 (for reference Mercedes-Benz A-Class has the lowest drag coefficient of 0.22 among all cars). Moving to the sides, the SUV with the increased wheelbase and longer rear overhang looks better proportioned.

At the rear the front design language continues, the slimmer taillights now wrap around the entire width of the SUV. Coming to the interior of the new Range Rover Sport, things have been updated here too. Inside you now get the latest 13.7-inch digital gauge cluster and the curved 13.1-inch Pivi Pro touchscreen infotainment system. The new infotainment supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with Amazon Alexa voice commands as well as over-the-air updates. 

Apart from the usual Land Rover shenanigans like 22-way power-adjustable seats, heated and cooled seats with memory and massage function, cabin air purification with PM2.5 filtration, etc. The added wheelbase results in 0.8-inch extra legroom for the rear passengers. Other key features available inside include a 1,430-watt 29-speaker Meridian sound system which includes four headrest speakers, active noise cancellation, soft dorr close, etc. That said, the SUV has started production in the U.K. and is available for ordering online.
