Some bold claims are made by Range Rover about the new Sport D250 SE, like Effortlessly combining assertive and instinctive on-road performance with trademark refinement, progressive design and connected convenience, the new Range Rover Sport is redefining sporting luxury.”

As a foundation model, the company suggests the D250 offers a more accessible pathway to the Range Rover experience while maintaining the prestige and performance expected of the iconic British brand.

Steve Kenchington, CEO of JLR New Zealand says, “After nearly two decades of leadership in luxury performance, the Range Rover Sport remains the definitive performance SUV. The Range Rover Sport D250 encapsulates our commitment to elegance and excellence in every journey.”

Powered by a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder 250PS Twin-Turbocharged Diesel MHEV AWD engine, this model combines efficiency with the dynamic capability that is hallmark to the Range Rover brand, says Range Rover New Zealand. That’s the same engine that we were impressed with in our recent 1,000km Far North jaunt in the Defender, that you can read about here.

The 2024 Range Rover Sport D250 SE maintains its distinctive silhouette, featuring a floating halo roof graphic and flush deployable door handles that enhance its ‘carved from solid’ appearance.

Built on the state-of-the-art Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA) platform, Range Rover claims the Sport D250 is equipped to deliver superior performance and handling, whether navigating urban landscapes or embracing rugged off-road terrain.

The centerpiece is the Pivi Pro infotainment system, displayed on a 13.1” curved glass floating touchscreen. This system integrates seamlessly with Wireless Apple® CarPlay® and Wireless Android AutoTM, enhancing connectivity.

Now available to order MY24 Range Rover Sport D250 SE is expected to arrive in New Zealand dealerships from August 2024.

How on earth to start this? I've been car/bike/truck crazy since I was a teen. Like John, I had the obligatory Countach poster on the wall. I guess I'm more officially into classic and muscle cars than anything else - I currently have a '65 Sunbeam Tiger that left the factory the same day as I left the hospital as a newborn with my mother. How could I not buy that car? In 2016 my wife and I drove across the USA in a brand-new Dodge Challenger, and then shipped it home. You can read more on We did this again in 2019 in a 1990 Chev Corvette - you can read about that trip on DriveLife. I'm a driving instructor and an Observer for the Institute of Advanced Motorists - trying to do my bit to make our roads safer.
