The redesigned 2023 Range Rover Sport starts at $83,000 MSRP, while the 2023 Range Rover Velar starts at $60,300 MSRP—but is it worth it to upgrade with the more expensive model? Any driver who compares the 2023 Range Rover Sport vs. Velar will note that only the Sport model offers the brand’s new and improved Plug-In Hybrid powertrain as an optional upgrade—but the Sport also offers more standard power, as well as some amenities that the Range Rover Velar lacks.

Ultimately, you can’t go wrong either way! Our detailed breakdown covers everything you’ll need to know to make the right choice.



2023 Range Rover Sport vs. Velar: Performance

Both of these Land Rover SUVs come standard with all-wheel drive and advanced performance features, including Terrain Response®. However, there are important differences between the two models.

The 2023 Range Rover Sport currently offers three powertrains:

  • P340 3.0L V6 Twin Turbocharged Gas MHEV: 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque
  • P400 3.0L V6 Twin Turbocharged Gas MHEV: 395 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque
  • P440e 3.0L V6 Twin Turbocharged Gas + Electric Motor PHEV: 434 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque

The Velar offers three options of its own:

  • P250 2.0L i4 Turbocharged Gas: 247 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque
  • P340 3.0L V6 Turbocharged Gas MHEV: 335 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque
  • P400 3.0L V6 Twin Turbocharged Gas MHEV: 395 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque

If you’re ready to upgrade with a plug-in hybrid that you can charge at home or in public, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for in the new Range Rover Sport. On the other hand, the more accessible Velar can be a great choice for Los Angeles-area drivers who prefer to stick with the essentials.

2023 Range Rover Sport vs. Velar: Standard Features

The Range Rover Velar offers sharp styling and a unique forward-thinking look. In fact, the design cues that were introduced on the Velar several years ago have now come to inform the styling of the redesigned Range Rover Sport.

With respect to standard features, the Range Rover Velar vs. Sport matchup is one in which you get what you pay for! Here’s a closer look at the standard features that set these two models apart:

  • 21-inch wheels for the Sport / 19-inch wheels for the Velar
  • 20-Way Heated Front Memory seats for the Sport / 14-Way Heated Front Memory seats for the Velar
  • 15-Speaker Meridian™ Sound System in the Sport / 12-Speaker Meridian™ Sound System in the Velar
  • 13.1-inch touchscreen in the Sport / 11.4-inch touchscreen in the Velar
  • Interactive Driver Display in the Sport / Secondary lower touchscreen in the Velar

Both models come equipped with Wireless Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, as well as the new Pivi Pro™ interface, and both models seat up to five passengers. Ultimately, this decision will most likely come down to how much you’d like to spend on your next SUV.
