THIRD-GENERATION RANGE ROVER SPORT – DETAILS


The third-generation Range Rover Sport will arrive in Australia in the fourth quarter of
2022. The range will initially comprise a range of mild-hybrid six-cylinder diesels plus the
new six-cylinder P510e plug-in hybrid.

A new flagship 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 will be available to order later in 2022 by way of what
Range Rover describes as an “exclusive online sales event”.

Most engines are 3.0-litre in-line units. The lowest-emission powertrain is a plug-in hybrid.
This mates an Ingenium 3.0-litre in-line-six petrol engine with a 105kW electric motor and
a 38.2kWh battery.

Total outputs are 375kW of power and 700Nm of torque, with a claimed zero to 100km/h
time of 5.4 seconds.

There’s also a new BMW-sourced 4.4 litre twin-turbo petrol V8, with 390kW and 750Nm.
Its zero to 100 time is 4.5 seconds, when launch control is engaged. There’s a further
range of 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, all with a 48V mild-hybrid
system with a belt-integrated starter generator.

All models have an eight-speed automatic sourced from ZF and air suspension.

All have a single-speed transfer box, except for the P510e which uses a twin-speed
transfer box.

The P510e also comes standard with an electronic active differential, all-wheel steering,
and Dynamic Air Suspension with Dynamic Response Pro.

Electric range for the P510e is more than 125km under the NEDC cycle.
Land Rover says the P510e has fast-charging capability, with charging from 0 to 80 per
cent in less than an hour with a 50kW rapid charger.

A full charge with a 7.2kW AC wallbox will take less than five hours.

The new Range Rover Sport measures 4946mm long, 2209mm wide (including the
mirrors), and 1820mm high. The wheelbase is 2997mm.

Maximum ground clearance is 274mm on the P510e, and 281mm on all other variants, all
models have a 30-degree departure angle.

Approach and departure angles are 33 degrees and 26.9 degrees, respectively, on all
expect the plug-in hybrid where they are 29.7 and 24.5 degrees.

All models have a 3.5 tonne braked towing capacity except for the P510e, which has a 3.0
tonne capacity.

Land Rovers have a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty with five years roadside
assistance on all models.

A five-year service plan is available across the range. This costs $3200 in diesel models,
$2700 in petrol and plug-in hybrid models, and $3800 in the V8.
