After redesigning its flagship Range Rover model last year, the manufacturer is turning its attention to the 2023 Land Rover Range Rover Sport. According to news, the forthcoming model will arrive later this year with a new powertrains. Beside new engines, the third generation SUV will also receive some styling tweaks, interior refinements, and a technology reboot.
The SUV is a top-tier Range Rover, and it is worth mentioning that it’s above the Range Rover Velar and Evoque models. Orders are open now, and you can get this model for $84,350 in SE trim. However, if you’re looking for something unique, the first edition is an answer.
2023 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Exterior
At first glance, the upcoming 2023 Land Rover Range Rover Sport looks more attractive compared to the outgoing one. First of all, it features a sleeker exterior thanks to many upgrades. The front dominates with a new grille and lower bumper design with redesigned LED headlights.
We also noticed a slimmed-down daytime running lights and some rear noticeable updates. On the back, the Sport model now includes a restyled tailgate and a single bar which incorporates revised taillights and the “Range Rover” lettering. Also, the updated SUV features now smoother lines, a higher shoulder line, and updated lower fenders.
What’s New Inside?
Inside, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport looks way more modern than the outgoing version. Even with the base SE trim, drivers can enjoy the updated cockpit with a new center console and redesigned gear selector. According to Land Rover, the current dual 10-inch touchscreens are swapped for a single 13.1-inch tablet-style screen.
We saw the same infotainment on the new Range Rover. The lower screen incorporated many multimedia and climate-control functions, and we noticed more physical buttons. The new Range Rover Sport also ditches as standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, wireless charging and built-in Amazon Alexa with advanced voice recognition.
