Mere days after unveiling the Range Rover Sport for the international market, Land Rover has now listed the SUV on its India website as well along with the price. The third generation in the Range Rover Sport family, the new car gets a host of powertrain options, new exteriors and a completely overhauled interior with the company’s latest Pivi Pro infotainment system. The prices, however, are for the diesel powertrain option and the SUV itself is listed as a MY2023 model which means deliveries should begin by the end of the year. (Image: Land Rover)

Starting off with design, the Range Rover Sport gets a wide stance with minimal, yet sculpted exterior lines. Overall, the design is an evolution of the outgoing model. There are differences, but they are subtle. The front fascia features the sleekest headlamp units fitted to a Range Rover. The rear overhang juts out just a little more than before while the front overhang is a little shorter than before. The roofline slopes to the rear. If it weren’t for the rear windshield, the Sport would have an almost coupe-like appearance to it. (Image: Land Rover)

Wheel sizes range from 21 inches to 22 inches with an optional 23-inch rim also available. At the rear, some more of that minimalist look is visible thanks to the sleek LED tail lamps. The dual shark-fin antenna, too makes itself apparent from this view. Lower down on the bumper you get to see the two rectangular exhaust tips on a pretty, blacked out skid plate. According to Land Rover, the surface LED technology has been brough to a production vehicle for the first time allowing for a consistent view from any angle. Additionally, the spoiler at the top of the tail gate is the longest fitted to any Land Rover SUV. (Image: Land Rover)

For the international market, the Range Rover Sport is available in a range of electrified diesel and petrol options. The most powerful engine here is a twin turbo-charged 4.4-litre V8 petrol engine that churns out 525 hp of maximum power and 750 Nm of peak torque. This one is capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds. (Image: Land Rover)

The Land Rover website in India tells us that the mild-hybrid petrols should also make their way to India, but for now, we know that the D350 diesel is making its way here. This 6-cylinder turbo-charged diesel produces 350 hp of maximum power and 700 Nm of peak torque. This is then mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission that delivers the power to all four wheels. There is also the P400 3-litre 6-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine that produces 400 hp of maximum power. And finally, a plug-in hybrid petrol (PHEV) that features a 3-litre 6-cylinder engine paired with a 38.2 kWh battery pack and a 105 kW motor. The total output from this powertrain comes out to around 510 hp of maximum power. According to Range Rover, this variant can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds and can travel up to 112 km on pure electric power. (Image: Land Rover)

The Sport also gets all-wheel steering which turns the wheel in the same direction as the front at high speeds for better stability. At lower speeds, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels allowing for better manoeuvrability and a tighter turning radius. This along with the torque vectoring by braking and electronic differential should mean better cornering abilities for the Sport. Then comes Land Rover’s Terrain Response 2 system for off-roading. With this the company gives the Sport adaptive off-road cruise control. (Image: Land Rover)
