Design in detail
The Range Rover Sport’s exterior design is sleek and dynamic, with muscular proportions and taut surfacing that exude a sense of readiness. The vehicle’s short overhangs, assertive front-end, and steeply raked glazing at the front and back create a commanding road presence that communicates power and performance.

The exterior’s sculpted details are exquisite, from the stealth-like front grille to the Pixel LED lighting units that create a distinct Daytime Running Light (DRL) signature. The LED light graphics at the rear are uninterrupted, providing a crisp and contemporary look at night that is vivid and consistent from any angle. The exterior is further enhanced by beautifully executed flush glazing and door handles, a hidden waist rail finisher, and laser-welded roof that contribute to the vehicle’s excellent aerodynamic performance.

The new Dynamic model offers a unique exterior design with Satin Grey alloy wheels, Satin Burnished Copper finishes for the bonnet louvres and side ingots, and Matte Graphite Atlas finish for the front grille and Range Rover lettering. The bespoke lower cladding finished in body color gives the Dynamic model the most dramatic interpretation of the Range Rover Sport formula.

The all-new interior is designed to provide a compelling balance of sartorial elegance and visceral desire, with the latest technologies and the finest materials. The trademark Range Rover Command Driving Position and the high, sloping center console create a cockpit-like cabin that provides excellent visibility and intuitive technologies. The interior features innovative and sustainable material choices, including tactile and lightweight Ultrafabrics premium textiles finished in attractive new Duo Tone colorways, luxurious grained, Windsor or soft Semi-Aniline leather options, and Moonlight Chrome interior finishers. The integrated audio speakers, developed with Meridian, are hidden behind the textile of the rear doors, contributing to the clean, crisp, and modern aesthetic of the interior.
