Range Rover Sport R-Dynamic HSE D350 2022 Review

Range Rover Sport has been a huge success for the brand since it was first introduced. We drove the R-Dynamic HSE D350.

The 3.0L twin turbo inline Ingenium six cylinder mild hybrid diesel engine is a beauty. It provides a surge of acceleration as well as excellent economy. With 258kW and 700Nm available the driving is smooth and responsive. Not that owners will use it but the RR Sport also has awesome 4WD capability.

There are few manufacturers that can match the Range Rover ride over corrugated dirt roads. It retains its composure with ease. It’s as much at home at the snow as it is on the motorway.

Be wary of the long and expensive options list, dally too long and tick a few boxes and the price can escalate rapidly. Im not sure I would pay upwards of $14,000 for a premium sound system, but I would $6,000 plus for ventilated and massage front seats, they were exceptionally comfortable.

Overall the Range Rover Sport is amongst the best in class. Priced from $162,010 with options added it went to $210,704 plus the usual costs.
