Land Rover has redesigned the Range Rover Sport for 2023. The new Sport SUV offers a number of powertrains, as well as a plug-in hybrid version. We share our first impressions of the inline-six, 355-horsepower on the SE P360 trim we purchased for our test program, and how it stacks up against competitors like the Porsche Cayenne, Genesis GV80, and even the top shelf Range Rover.

  1. Love your reviews. Me gustan mucho.

  2. It’s a beautiful SUV but unreliable and expensive.

      1) I thought its not a SUV. Isn’t it car base chassis? 2) As for unreliable I guess it got better adding turbo charge + super charge + mild hybrid to it complication. Anyways I think reliability is not their business model. I think LR want customers to change vehicles frequently so short life span and with in the shorter life span when they break giving a good loaner vehicle with good customer treatment still keep customers happy. I think when things go bad buying back under lemon law is nothing big for them. 3) I think expensive is for a reason to keep the customer happy because of above points mentioned, imo.

    That’s the same reason I enjoy munro live

    All Land Rover models should be considered “LeaseMobiles” for well-heeled folks. Once the warranty is over, you can rename that SUV a Range Rover Wallet Drainer Sport! 😊

  5. $92K? I’d have to be able to live in it! The reliability would keep me away as well, but if I won it or was given to me, I WOULD NOT keep because of the controls!

  6. The same amount for the Land Rover, I can get a decent SUV and a truck! Both can be new or used, depending on what’s available. Why would I want to pay tons of money to get something so unreliable?

    I don’t see how it doesn’t look like every other SUV out there? To me, the Range Rover looks like my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee (at three times the original price). You have to REALLY be into cars to think this is anything other than same old/same old. Mike is right – it’s about the badge.

  8. Lol cayenne s, x5m are great choices

  9. Carlos Martinez | March 29, 2023 at 3:21 PM |

    I’m waiting for the CX90 or CX70 over this!

  10. My Cancer Journey | March 29, 2023 at 5:11 PM |

    Thank you so much for your videos! I had a misfortune, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I also created a channel and am trying to move in that direction, but so far not very successful((bj

  11. IMO, the SUV to get for the best combination of luxury, power, capability, efficiency, features, and prestige, is the new BMW X5 50e.

  12. Oh for cryin’ out loud!! 22″ wheels? I hope the wheel bearings are up to the challenge! Why not just skip the tires and run steel wheels so you can offer 28″ wheels??? That is *SO* impractical for the roads in the U.S.

    It might be helpful to the audience to have a segment explaining why specific cars were chosen to be purchased for testing, especially when they approach $100,000 and are extremely unlikely to be purchased by the readers of the magazine.
