The facelifted Range Rover Sport has been more than a few years in the works. We got our first look at it back in 2015, and since then we’ve seen it more than a few times out on the road (and track), specifically in SVR trim. But these new photos give us our most defined look yet at the freshened up SUV yet.
Seen here on some snowy backroads, the fresh new Range Rover still wears a healthy amount of camouflage. What can be distinguished is the new front grille and accenting vents on the side of the fascia and underneath the grille. The side panels have gone mostly unchanged, and the rear doesn’t look like it’s been given much of a redesign at all.
It's in the cabin where most of the upgrades will happen. A more generous 10.2-inch touchscreen system will replace the current 8-inch screen. It’s the same system buyers get on the latest Discovery and Evoque, and comes with a variety of new options to play with.
Expect the engines to mostly carry over from the current generation. The 3.0-liter supercharged V6 petrol will remain, as will the 3.0-litre turbodiesel. The only exception will be the range-topping SVR, which will keep its supercharged 5.0-litre V8, but could see power increase to as much as 575-horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque to match the F-Type SVR. That would propel the SVR to 60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 162 mph.
Land Rover is expected to introduce the facelifted Range Rover Sport later in the year.
