2022 Range Rover Sport launched in India; bookings now open
Jaguar Land Rover has launched the 2022 iteration of the Range Rover Sport SUV in India. It has a starting price tag of Rs. 1.64 crore. The automaker has also begun the official bookings for the four-wheeler and its deliveries will begin later this year. The car is offered in four trims: Dynamic SE, Dynamic HSE, Autobiography, and a specially curated First Edition.
Why does this story matter?
The new Range Rover Sport offers better looks and features than the outgoing model. It will arrive on our shores as a completely built unit (CBU). Based on Land Rover's MLA-Flex platform, the 2022 version of the car is expected to intensify the competition in the luxury SUV segment. It takes on rivals such as Porsche Cayenne and Maserati Levante.
The SUV sports LED headlights and 22-inch alloy wheels
The 2022 Range Rover Sport features a muscular hood with copper inserts and Matte Graphite lettering, a sleek black grille, a black roof, LED headlights with L-shaped DRLs, and a revamped bumper with a wide air dam. It is flanked by sharp body lines, ORVMs, flush-fitted door handles, and 22-inch alloy wheels. Wrap-around taillamps, dual exhaust tips, and two shark-fin antennas grace the rear.
The car is available with two engine options
The 2022 Range Rover Sport draws power from a 3.0-liter, 6-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that generates 346hp of maximum power and 700Nm of peak torque. A plug-in hybrid powertrain with a 434hp, 3.0-liter, 6-cylinder turbo-petrol mill is also available. It has an automatic transmission setup.
The four-wheeler gets heated and ventilated seats
The 2022 Range Rover Sport has a luxurious cabin, featuring perforated semi-aniline leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, 22-way heated and ventilated seats, four-zone climate control, head-up display, Meridian audio system, and a multifunctional steering wheel. It packs a 13.7-inch digital instrument console and 13.1-inch Pivi Pro touchscreen infotainment panel. For safety, the car has adaptive cruise control, Terrain Response 2 system, and park assist.
