Next-generation Range Rover Sport revealed with new tech, more stylish design
After announcing its arrival earlier this year, Coventry Motors, the official distributor of Land Rover in the country has revealed the specs and prices of the all-new Range Rover Sport.
Set to officially launch tomorrow, the 2023 Range Rover Sport not only gets a sleek and more dynamic-looking design, but it also comes with a more high-tech and luxurious interior that is complemented by an electrified powertrain. For those who prefer traditional internal combustion, the 2023 Range Rover Sport is also available with a turbo-diesel heart, amongst other engine choices.
Beginning with its design, the Range Rover Sport takes inspiration from the all-new flagship Range Rover that was launched in the Philippines last year. Called “Reductive Design”, the automaker claims this unique look highlights the vehicle's tight seams while also displaying its muscular curves and stance.
The front end is dominated by a slim distinct grille and is complemented by a neat pair of LED headlights with L-shaped LED daytime running lights. Meanwhile, the front bumper features dynamic air intakes and blacked-out trim that gives it a more aggressive look. Around the back, it gets a more minimalist design with its wraparound LED taillights, stylish tailgate, and dual exhausts that sit below the rear bumper.
Despite its luxurious looks, the Range Rover Sport can still take on uneven terrain. In fact, the company claims it can take on 40-degree slopes and wade water as high as 900mm. Those who like big wheels will be happy to know the Range Rover Sport comes with massive 21-inch alloys.
Hop inside and the new Range Rover Sport welcomes occupants with a wide array of amenities and equipment. All variants come with 20-way power-adjustable front seats with heating and cooling functions, perforated Windsor leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, and LED ambient lighting.
A 13.1-inch curved touchscreen infotainment display sits at the center of the dashboard and is powered by the company's Pivi Pro system. It comes with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto which negates the use of a cable when hooking up your smartphone. It also comes with built-in navigation, additional functions for climate control, and many more.
A turbocharged plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and non-assisted turbocharged engines are available for the 2023 Range Rover Sport. First is the P440e which comes with an electrified 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six that benefits from an electric motor. It produces a total system output of 440 PS. Those that want a more powerful PHEV can also get the P510e which doles out more power at 510 PS thanks to a more powerful electric motor.
Prefer a twin-turbo engine? There's the P530 which has a twin-turbo V8 that cranks out 530 PS which allows it to sprint from 0 - 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds. Other gasoline engines available in the lineup include the P360 and P400 variants.
Those that prefer diesel power will be glad to know there's also the 3.0-liter turbo-diesel inline-six. Dubbed the D300, the powertrain makes 300 PS. Other turbo-diesels available for the Range Rover Sport include the D250 and D350 mild-hybrid diesel.
Regardless of whether customers go for the electrified or non-assisted powertrain options for their 2023 Range Rover Sport, all variants come with an all-wheel-drive system and are connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Other available features present on the Range Rover Sport include Dynamic Air Suspension, All-Wheel Steering, Dynamic Response Pro, Electronic Active Differential with Torque Vectoring, Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist, and Rear Collision Monitor.
The 2023 Range Rover Sport begins at PHP 13,490,000 million.
