This is the new 2023 Range Rover Sport, Land Rover’s latest luxurious SUV.

It’s based on the same architecture that underpins the latest full-fat Range Rover, which means it’s a largely aluminium 4×4 that’s very much full-size for Europe – not so huge by US standards.

The range is incredibly broad, from diesels through to a V8, but here Matt Prior is testing the plug-in hybrid, badged P510e.

That combines a 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor with its oomph provided by a 31.8kWh battery. The car has 503bhp, which is good enough for a 5.4sec 0-62mph time and a 150mph top speed. It also has a 70 mile electric-only range if you start fully charged.

In the UK, the Range Rover Sport range starts from around £80,000 and this particular model from £112,040.

Join us for a pretty brief first drive – we’ll bring you a more in-depth review including some rivals and off-roading from the UK later on.
