The new Range Rover Sport has been revealed and is available to order now, with prices starting from £79,125.
This alternative to the BMW X5 and Mercedes GLE is available with a variety of engines, and an all-electric version is coming in 2024.
New Range Rover Sport design
Just like with the full-sized Range Rover, the new Range Rover Sport is a case of evolution rather than revolution when it comes to design. That said, the designers have done enough to bring the car bang up-to-date.
It’s instantly recognisable as a Range Rover, thanks to the tall bonnet line and blunt nose. The slim new LED headlights and more aggressive air intakes separate the Sport from the standard Range Rover.
The side profile is more coupe-esque than the boxy Range Rover thanks to the sloping roofline. Huge 23-inch alloy wheels are available for the Range Rover Sport, as well as two-tone colour schemes to make your car stand out.
From the rear, the design is very clean with minimal creases, a bit like the full-fat Range Rover. The LED rear lights are contained in a black trim strip, no light bars here. There are no fake vents to be seen, apart from a diffuser in the lower bumper.
New Range Rover Sport interior and infotainment
The interior of the new Range Rover Sport is a huge step up from the previous car, taking clear inspiration from the full-sized Range Rover.
A 13.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system dominates the dashboard, however you’ll be pleased to see some physical climate controls situated beneath. There’s a floating centre console with storage underneath, as well as some cool-looking ambient lighting all around.
The two-tone dashboard is separated by a shiny metal trim strip containing the air vents, and the materials used look as premium as they come, with lashings of leather and solid metal.
As for technology, in addition to the huge touchscreen you also get a digital drivers display and Amazon Alexa integration, which can be used to control functions on the car using voice commands. Go for the rear seat entertainment package, and you get two more 11.4-inch screens in the rear.
New Range Rover Sport engines and driving
The new Range Rover Sport is available with a choice of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid engines. An all-electric version is also on the cards, however this isn’t expected to debut until 2024.
The plug-in hybrid gets a 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine paired with a 32kWh battery pack. You can either have 440hp in the P440e or 510hp from the P510e, and both will do a claimed 70 miles on electric power alone.
Two diesel options are available, both 3.0-litre straight-sixes and both with mild hybrid assistance. You can choose between the D300 and and D350, with 300hp and 350hp respectively.
As for petrol engines, you can either have a mild-hybrid six-cylinder with 400hp, or a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 with 530hp. A high-performance SVR version will also come at a later date.
All versions of the Range Rover Sport come with all-wheel-drive as standard and an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
New Range Rover Sport price and specs
The new Range Rover Sport is available to order now, with deliveries expected to start by the Autumn.
As for price, the new Range Rover Sport starts from £79,125 for the 300hp diesel model, climbing to almost £115,000 if you want the range topping V8 model.
