The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a midsize luxury SUV. It slots between the full-size Range Rover and the smaller, sleeker Range Rover Evoque in Land Rover’s lineup. The current-generation Range Rover Sport dates back to 2014, but Land Rover has made enough rolling updates over the years to largely keep pace with the competition.
There are a few significant changes for 2022, most notably to the powertrain offerings. The turbocharged diesel V6 is no longer available, and the plug-in hybrid variant has been dropped for 2022 because of parts shortages caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Range Rover Sport has a lot of competition in the market. Some of our favorite midsize luxury SUVs include the Audi Q8, BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE and Porsche Cayenne. Compared to those rivals, the Range Rover Sport is a step or two behind in terms of comfort and technology features. It’s also somewhat more expensive, though you do get respectable off-road capability as part of the deal. Overall, the Range Rover Sport isn’t our top pick for a midsize SUV, but it has a certain charm that’s hard to replicate elsewhere.
The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is available in seven trim levels: SE, HSE Silver Edition, HST, HSE Dynamic, Autobiography, SVR and SVR Carbon Edition. For 2022, the engine lineup has been slimmed down. Land Rover no longer offers the diesel engine or the plug-in hybrid powertrain. That leaves the turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six and supercharged 5.0-liter V8 as the only two engines. Both are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard four-wheel drive.
