So what have the folks at Land Rover done to make the Range Rover Sport stand out even further? Well, they have made it ‘bolder’, with the SUV now getting tauter styling, starting with a sleeker front grille that blends on to futuristic adaptive LED digital headlamps. Giving the front end an aggressive look is the bolder front bumper. 

 

While the overall silhouette looks largely unchanged, it's a lot smoother than before, also helped by flush-fitting door handles that help give the new Range Rover Sport a 0.29 drag coefficient. The rear’s also bold with a minimalistic look thanks to elegant connected LED tail lamps. The massive alloy wheels and blacked-out roofline round off the SUV’s bold stance.

 

Inside, inspired by the Range Rover, the Sport has a modern cabin with features like a 13.7-inch touchscreen infotainment system running on JLR’s Pivi Pro software and a 13.1-inch digital driver display that can be used via a touch button on the new 3-spoke steering wheel. Ambient lighting all over spruces up the ambience a bit. 

The 2022 Range Rover Sport comes loaded with new age kit including 22-way powered front seats with heating and ventilation function, a 29-speaker, 1430W Meridian sound system, a panoramic sunroof, soft-closing doors, a 3D surround camera, and active noise cancellation. Aside from ADAS, there is a driver condition monitor,  front and rear parking sensors, wade sensors, ClearSight Ground View and Manoeuvring Lights. 

Under the hood, the India-spec model gets a sole 3.0-litre six-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine assisted via a 48-Volt mild-hybrid system. It makes 345PS and 700Nm, and is paired to an 8-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to all four wheels. The model sold abroad also gets plug-in hybrid as well as petrol mild-hybrid options and we expect them to make their way to India in the near future.

There’s also some performance trickery underneath the skin with Dynamic Air Suspension that adapts the air pressure in the suspension for optimal cornering prowess, all-wheel steering, active anti-roll bar, as well as Land Rover’s Terrain Response 2 feature.

 

The SUV goes up against the Porsche CayenneMercedes-Benz GLE, BMW X5.
