  • The Range Rover Sport has a lower entry price and demands fewer trade-offs if you want the kind of richness and prestige that only a Range Rover can provide.
  • All versions of the Range Rover Sport come standard with all-wheel drive and Land Rover’s renowned off-road capability, which is a luxury in and of itself.
  • Car enthusiasts believe the Range Rover Sport is one of the best Range Rover models to drive in Nigeria.

Land Rover has released a 2024 model of the Range Rover Sport, and while many are already revving about the 2024 Range Rover Sport, the first question buyers should ask themselves is: what is the difference between the 2023 and 2024 models?

While the 2023 model might already have 1 year in it and the 2024 model is the latest, it’s important to note that they have a lot in similarities than they have differences. In this article, we will be looking at both model years to determine if there’s any difference between them.

Overview of the Range Rover Sport

The Ranger Rover Sport comes with a luxury-lined cabin that is comfortable and roomy, except for the third row, which only has room for children. An inline-six turbocharged engine provides sufficient power for zipping around town or merging onto the highway.

For the 2023 model, Land Rover removed the plug-in hybrid and diesel engines from the Range Rover Sport lineup, leaving only the turbocharged inline-six (with two outputs) as an option. The only other change is the addition of additional USB-C ports for charging and connecting devices, aside from switching to this more condensed lineup. 

The Range Rover Sport comes with minimal features and changes for the 2023 model year. But is this the case for the 2024 model? Let’s dig in.

Do the 2023 Range Rover Sport and 2024 Range Rover Sport Share the Same Trims?

No. The 2023 Land Rover Range Rover Sport comes in four trim levels; P360 SE, P400 SE Dynamic, P440 eAutobiography, and the P530 First Edition. The 2024 model on the other hand only has the P360 SE, P400 Dynamic, and the P550 PHEV Autobiography. 

Do the 2023 Range Rover Sport and 2024 Range Rover Sport Share the Same Performance and Transmission Capacity

Yes. They share similarities in their engine, performance, and transmission except for the 2024 PHEV Autobiography which pairs an electric motor to the inline-six for a combined 542 horsepower. Land Rover estimates the PHEV powertrain will motivate the Range Rover Sport to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. Other trims just like the 2023 model use a 3.0-litre inline-six-cylinder turbocharged engine, Land Rover’s superb all-wheel drive system, and an amazing eight-speed automatic transmission are standard on every 2022 Range Rover Sport. The hybrid 48-volt system helps the engine, which has a 355 horsepower output.

Do the 2023 Range Rover Sport and 2024 Range Rover Sport Share the Same Fuel Economy?

Yes. All the other models share similar fuel economy ratings of 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. However, the P550e plug-in hybrid model carries a battery that is large enough for a claimed 51 miles of electric driving per charge. We haven’t tested this model yet, but when we do we’ll take it on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route to see how its electric range stacks up to Land Rover’s estimate.

Do the 2023 Range Rover Sport and 2024 Range Rover Sport Share the Same Interior and Exterior Look?

Yes. Everything about the interior of the 2023 and 2024 Range Rover Sport’s interior and exterior are similar but with a little difference in the infotainment that is highlighted below. Both SUVs have the same 115-inch wheelbase, the Range Rover Sport has enough space in the back seat than many of its rivals. The Range Rover Sport, in contrast to the Range Rover, also has a compact, child-friendly third-row seat, increasing its seating capacity from five to seven.

Its front seats are supportive and sturdy, which is great for extended rides, and they have standard rear-seat air conditioning vents and controls. Rear seats with heaters are an option. Superior construction quality is evident in the smooth surfaces and lavish-looking controls.

The Range Rover Sport’s temperature and infotainment systems are managed by two enormous 13.1-inch touchscreens and an even larger 13.7-inch  screen parked in front of the driver to display the gauges The design is unquestionably elegant and modern. With simple menus and clear graphics, it is also user-friendly, but the infotainment system takes a little while to react to user inputs. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration are standard.

What’s the Major Difference Between the 2023 and 2024 Range Rover Sport SUV?

The major difference is that for 2024, Land Lover included the addition of the 626-hp Range Rover Sport SV. The regular Range Rover Sport gains a new 542-hp plug-in-hybrid powertrain called P550e. This new trim from 2024 replaces the 2023’s P440e model and offers both more power and more electric driving range. 

The Range Rover Sport’s infotainment system has been upgraded to the latest Pivi Pro 4 software interface. This update includes sliders for volume and climate controls that Land Rover says are easier to use; the system menus have been simplified as well to make it easier to navigate. Also, Land Lover discontinued the V-8-powered P530 powertrain to make space in the lineup for the performance-oriented SV model.
