2024 Land Rover Range Rover: The Athletics in 2024 The term Range Rover Sport not only alludes to its placement immediately below the more luxurious Range Rover, but it also represents the surge of excitement the vehicle brings to the brand’s portfolio. The Range Rover Sport delivers comfort and luxury along with competitive athleticism, matching or surpassing that of competitors like the BMW X5, Porsche Cayenne, and Mercedes-AMG GLE53. Other Range Rover models focus on providing similar attributes.

Its available powertrains deliver decent horsepower, ranging from a 355-hp inline-six to a 542-hp plug-in hybrid.  The interior of the Range Rover Sport is stunning, featuring two rows of cozy seats covered in high-quality materials. However, the Range Rover Sport starts more expensive than other SUVs because of its blend of luxury and sophistication, so be prepared to pay more to park one in your driveway.

What Is 2024 Bringing?

The 626-hp Range Rover Sport SV is the big news for 2024, but we review that model individually. The P550e plug-in hybrid powertrain, which produces 542 hp, is added to the standard Range Rover Sport. This model, which takes the place of the P440e from the previous year, has increased power and electric driving range. The Range Rover Sport’s infotainment system now includes the most latest Pivi Pro 4 software interface. Land Rover claims that the updated version has simpler-to-use volume and climate control sliders, and the system menus are also easier to browse. For 2024, the V-8-powered P530 powertrain will no longer be available, as the performance-focused SV model will take its place in the lineup.

Price and Which to Purchase

Depending on the model and extras, the 2024 Land Rover Range Rover Sport might cost anywhere from $85,075 to $119,675.

We believe the better trim level is the more potent P400 Dynamic SE. Its additional horsepower will give it a little extra acceleration on the town and motorway, and it comes equipped with a long list of luxury and convenience options that won’t break the bank.

Performance, Engine, and Transmission

The base 3.0-liter inline-six turbocharged engine produces 355 horsepower in the P360 SE and 395 horsepower in the P400 SE Dynamic. It uses a 48-volt hybrid system. The P360 SE seemed slower in town even though it only took 5.7 seconds to reach 60 mph in our test. However, our test car’s exceptional ride quality made up for the uneven pavement close to our Michigan offices. The plug-in hybrid P550e system, which combines an electric motor and inline-six to create 542 horsepower altogether, is exclusive to the expensive Autobiography trim level. 

According to Land Rover, the Range Rover Sport can reach 60 mph in 4.7 seconds with the PHEV drivetrain. All variants have an air suspension system that can be adjusted, an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and an all-wheel drive as standard. The Stormer Handling Pack, an optional performance driving package that includes torque vectoring and rear-wheel steering, is also available for the Range Rover Sport. We were pleased with the Range Rover Sport’s combination of comfort and athleticism during our first test drive, and we observed that it was easier to maneuver in confined areas than in other SUVs of a comparable size thanks to its rear-wheel-steering system.

Battery life, charging time, and range

With a large enough battery, the P550e plug-in hybrid variant is said to go 51 miles on electricity between charges. This model hasn’t been tested yet, but when we do, we’ll drive it along our 75 mph highway fuel-economy route to compare its electric range to Land Rover’s estimate.

Fuel Efficiency and Actual MPG

The P360 and P400 models will get 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, according to Land Rover. Impressively, for a 5387-pound SUV, the P360 SE achieved its predicted 25 mpg on our highway fuel-economy test route at 75 mph.

Cargo, Comfort, and Interior

The Range Rover Sport’s interior is a study in minimalism, with few tactile switches and controls and a sleek appearance throughout the vehicle. Authentic leather or textile upholstery in eye-catching two-tone designs is available to buyers. The chrome highlights with their dark hue appear elegant. The front seats are power-adjustable as standard, but an optional set of chairs with up to 22-way adjustment, massaging, ventilation, and winged headrests is available. There is an inbuilt air filtration system that is said to lessen allergies, bacteria, viruses, and odors in the cabin.

Connectivity and Entertainment

With a sizable 13.1-inch curved touchscreen for infotainment and an even larger 13.7-inch screen positioned in front of the driver to show the instruments, the Range Rover Sport’s dashboard has an abundance of digital real estate. Though it’s the best in-car infotainment system Land Rover has ever made, the Pivi Pro interface is not without its peculiarities, as we have discovered while using it in other models like the Discovery and Defender.

However, the displays are clear and sharp, and they appear luxurious as they float above the Range Rover Sport’s leather-wrapped dashboard. Standard features of all Range Rover Sports include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, as well as Amazon’s Alexa. Additionally, a wireless smartphone charging pad is ingeniously placed on a shelf directly below the infotainment screen. Speakers from the optional 29-speaker Meridian sound system are located in the front and rear headrests of the Range Rover Sport.

Features for Safety and Driver Assistance

Numerous driver-support systems, such as lane-keeping assistance, 360-degree exterior camera systems, and automated emergency braking, are standard. It also comes with an off-road feature and an adaptive cruise control system.

  • Standard automated emergency braking
  • Standard lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist
  • Standard adaptive cruise control

Coverage for Maintenance and Warranty

For its class, the Range Rover Sport’s warranty coverage is approximately average, however, it excludes free scheduled maintenance. Three major competitors, the Volvo XC90, the BMW X5 and X7, and the BMW X5 all feature three years or 36,000 miles of free scheduled maintenance with the purchase price.

  •  The duration of a limited warranty is 50,000 miles or four years.
  • Within four years or fifty thousand miles, the powertrain warranty is provided.
  • No complimentary scheduled maintenance
