2023 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Review: Specs and Pricing

2023 Land Rover Range Rover Sport


A car from Land Rover's top-tier Range Rover family should work just fine if you're searching for one that combines off-road ability, opulent interiors, and the status of an upper-crust image. However, the 2023 Range Rover Sport is a close substitute if your budget is a little less forgiving. The Sport's silhouette is comparable to that of the more costly Range Rover despite its lower size but with more attitude. You have a good selection of options thanks to a trio of powertrains that includes a hybrid inline-six, a plug-in hybrid inline-six, and a mega-power twin-turbo V-8.

The luxurious inside is equipped with the newest entertainment system from Land Rover, the Pivi Pro, as well as driver-assistance capabilities for both on- and off-road driving. The starting price of the Range Rover Sport is greater than that of comparable high-end SUVs like the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE-class, and Volvo XC90 because all this grandeur doesn't come cheap. Without a doubt, though, the Sport earns its position in the Range Rover lineup honestly and for several reasons, not the least of which is the fact that it appears to be well-off.

What has changed for 2023?

The mid-size Range Rover Sport has undergone a complete overhaul, much like the larger Range Rover, with new aesthetics, a modernized interior, and cutting-edge technology. As a 2024 model, an all-electric Range Rover Sport EV will go on sale the following year.

Which one to Purchase?

Although Land Rover hasn't yet provided a detailed list of the Range Rover Sport's basic and extra equipment, we believe the more potent SE Dynamic trim will be the one to choose. Having more horsepower will likely give it a slight advantage on the interstate and in town. We'll update this article with more information as soon as we learn more about the option packages for the revised model.

2023 Range Rover Sport: Interior and Comfort

This time around, the interior design has adopted a more minimalist style, with fewer buttons and switches and a more streamlined appearance throughout the cabin. Customers can select from appealing two-tone designs in both textile and genuine leather upholstery. The details in the dark-tinted chrome are upscale-looking.

Front seats with power adjustments are standard, but it is also possible to purchase chairs with up to 22 different adjustments, massage, ventilation, and winged headrests. It is possible to purchase an integrated air filtration system, which is said to lessen odors, bacteria, viruses, and allergies in the cabin.

2023 Range Rover Sport: Connectivity

With a big 13.1-inch curved touchscreen handling infotainment duties and a 13.7-inch screen parked in front of the driver to show the instruments, the Range Rover Sport's new dashboard gives plenty of digital space. The Pivi Pro interface is Land Rover's best attempt at in-car infotainment to date, but it is not without its oddities, as we've discovered using it in other models like the Defender and the Discovery.

Although it appears to be hovering above the leather dashboard of the Range Rover Sport, the displays are sharp and clear. All Range Rover Sports include Alexa from Amazon, and they all come standard with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Also smartly fitted is a wireless smartphone charging pad on a shelf directly below the infotainment panel. The Range Rover Sport's front and rear headrests have speakers for the optional 29-speaker Meridian sound system.

2023 Range Rover Sport: Engine and Performance

The base engine is a 48-volt hybrid turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that generates 395 horsepower in the P400 SE Dynamic and 355 horsepower in the P360 SE. Exclusive to the luxurious Autobiography grade, the plug-in hybrid P440e system combines an electric motor and an inline-six to provide 434 horsepower.

The P530 First Edition, which only has a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 engine that generates a strong 523 horsepower, has the best piece of meat.

The V-8 is expected to propel the Range Rover Sport to 60 mph in under 4.3 seconds, according to Land Rover. All models come equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission, all-wheel drive as standard, and an air suspension that can be adjusted. Another performance driving option for the Range Rover Sport is the Stormer Handling Pack, which includes torque-vectoring and rear-wheel steering. We'll update this section with our driving impressions after we have a chance to test-drive the new Range Rover Sport.

Battery Life, Range, and Charging

Until the EV variant goes on sale early the following year, the plug-in hybrid model of the Range Rover Sport will be the only one with an all-electric driving range. With its 31.8 kWh battery pack, the plug-in, according to Land Rover, has a 48-mile electric driving range.

2023 Range Rover Sport: Pricing

The 2023 Range Rover Sport luxury SUV is more svelte, opulent, potent, and even environmentally friendly than any previous model. The starting cost is $83,000. The First Edition trim, which is at the top of the line, costs $121,500.
