Land Rover, today after sharing tips in the last days new Range Rover Sport lifted the cover. Renewed SUV model, in 2024 to all-electric version will get it too.
What does the 2023 Range Rover Sport offer with its features?
On the other hand, until the all-electric version of the 2023 Range Rover Sport arrives, PHEV, or rechargeable versions, will undertake the electrification work. Apart from that, petrol and diesel engines with mild hybrid support and a 4.4-liter V8 are also among the options.
When we look at the exterior design of the new Range Rover Sport, we see that it bears traces of the Range Rover introduced six months ago. The simple and flowing design is accompanied by hidden door handles. However, the similarity is limited to this. The Sport model has sportier-looking front and rear bumpers and very thinly designed LED lighting, as befits its name. By the way, let’s also mention that the air drag coefficient of the SUV is 0.29.
On the infrastructure side, we see Land Rover’s MLA-Flex platform. This means that many chassis features are shared with the new Range Rover, such as rear axle steering, which allows the rear wheels to be angled 7.3 degrees. The 2023 Ranger Rover Sport, whose wheelbase has reached 2977 mm with an increase of 54 mm, is also standard on all versions of the dynamic air suspension system. The torsional stiffness of the SUV is also 35 percent higher than its predecessor.
The engine options of 2023 Range Rover Sport in Europe are as follows:
- P400 3.0L inline-six turbo mild hybrid, 400 PS, 550 Nm

Rechargeable hybrid versions of Range Rover Sport have a battery with a capacity of 38.2 kWh. According to WLTP, the pure electric driving range is announced as 114 km, but Land Rover states that this range will be around 88 kilometers in real conditions. Just like the Ranger Rover, the Sport model also has 50 kW fast charging support. This allows the battery to reach 80 percent charge in 40 minutes.
All engines power all four wheels via an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. Land Rover’s intelligent all-wheel drive system also allows the SUV to be used as rear-wheel drive by removing the front axle for efficiency when necessary.
The layout inside the 2023 Range Rover Sport is also familiar. However, unlike the standard version, Sport uses a three-spoke steering wheel. Just behind it is the 13.7-inch digital instrument cluster. In the center, there is a 13.1-inch touchscreen multimedia screen powered by the Pivi Pro system.
Features such as 22-way adjustable seats with massage feature, advanced air purification system, optional 1430W 29-speaker Meridian hifi sound system, active noise canceling system, 15W wireless charging, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also on the list.
The 2023 Range Rover Sport will be produced at the company’s Solihull plant in England. The sales date of the model, which is opened to order, is not yet known. The price of the Sport model in the USA starts at $ 83 thousand.
