Cars Guide 74% "The Range Rover Sport is a fine alternative to the largely German competition. As the name suggests, it's aimed at the Audi Q7/BMW X5 set, even if it isn't as quick or as agile as the sportiest of those." Read more
4x4 Australia No Rating "...it provides a dynamic and engaging on-road drive combined with plenty of off-road competence, thanks largely to its long-travel, height-adjustable suspension; even if this particular model doesn't get a dual-range transfer case." Read more

A comprehensive review of the Range Rover Sport SUV

Range Rover Sport SUV pricing

Range Rover sells the Sport in an almost bamboozling six different trims. It has to be said the sheer number of specifications on offer means the brochure is more of a puzzle than informational literature. Here’s a breakdown of what each trim comes with as standard.

Range Rover Sport S

Range Rover labels the S as the perfect introduction to the models on sale. This is the cheapest Range Rover Sport you can buy from a dealer, with a driveaway price of $105,850.30.

For the money, you'll get massive 19" alloy wheels, electro-air suspension, automatic LED headlamps with daytime running lights and power washers, twin-zone climate control, grained leather interior seats with 8-way powered adjustment, gearshift paddles and 2 swish 10" widescreen touch interfaces (known as Touch Pro Duo). Range Rover calls the sound system an "Enhanced Audio" unit. Range Rover also enables the 4x4 to act as a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Safety wise, you also get:

  • Rear camera (can upgrade to a 360o surround camera for $1,890)
  • Cruise control/speed limiter (can be upgraded to adaptive cruise for $3,670)
  • Emergency braking
  • Front and rear parking aids
  • Lane departure warning
  • Trailer stability assist
  • Rain detecting wipers
  • Low traction launch

You can't buy an S line Range Rover Sport with two rear seats and it's only sold with a high-range transfer box (no low range).

Range Rover Sport SE

Next, we have the SE (short for standard equipment) Range Rover Sport, starting at $109,315.29. The SE builds upon the S spec Range Rover Sport by including an auto-dimming rearview mirror, front seats that adjust in 14 ways (as opposed to 8), a motorised tailgate (on all SE models, but the PHEV SE is gesture controlled), chrome gearshift paddles plus techy wing mirrors (with electronic power folding, heating and approach lights).
Range Rover Sport HSE

Following on from the SE, there's the HSE (high specification equipment). The lowest price Sport HSE is $147,817.30 driveaway.

For the extra outlay, you'll get 20" wheels in a split-spoke design, matrix LED headlights with animated directional indicators, perforated leather upholstery with 16-way adjustment and heating, a heated windscreen, premium carpet mats, an electrically adjustable steering column, adaptive dynamics, acoustic front glass and a solar attenuating front windshield (complete with a heads-up display). The interior's ambient lighting is adjustable and you also get DAB. All models now have gesture controlled boot operation.

250kW diesel models have configurable dynamics.

Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

Purchasing an HSE Dynamic branded Range Rover Sport brings additional refinements. The alloy wheel diameter jumps to 21", with 5 spokes. The interior has an extended leather pack, complete with a leather steering wheel that sports an atlas bezel. There are also neat little touches like a dark aluminium trim finisher and illuminated metal tread plates with the Range Rover branding.

This model sells from $155,067.31 driveaway. It's on the HSE Dynamic model that the 5.0-litre V8 engine option makes its first appearance, at $185,545.31.

The 225 kW HSE diesel Range Rover Sport has electronic air suspension and dynamic response.

Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic

The Autobiography is well named, it's the ultimate Range Rover Sport, as written by the company itself. There are 2 engines to choose from, the 3.0-litre diesel V6 at $191,602.30 driveaway or the more powerful 5-litre V8 petrol at $218,410.31.

Range Rover outfits this Sport with 21" diamond turned alloy wheels and semi-Aniline leather seats. The front 2 seats have 22 ways of adjustment as well as winged headrests, plus a heating and cooling element. The rear seats are heated.

Autobiography models stand out thanks to a black contrasting roof, electronic air suspension with dynamic response, Terrain Response 2, an electronic active differential and extra-large additional washer bottle. The interior of the Autobiography features a piano black veneer. Range Rover clad the headlining in a suedecloth. Sound is upgraded to a Meridian Surround audio system. The Autobiography Dynamic also monitors the driver's condition and has a 360-degree parking aid with rear traffic monitoring. A clear exit detection system warns rear passengers if it is safe to exit. This model can also recognise traffic signs and has an adaptive speed limiter. Keeping your treats nicely chilled is a cooler cabinet up front.

Range Rover Sport SVR

Finally, there's the SVR (special vehicle racing) model to reinforce the model's Sport name. The SVR has 21" satin polished alloys and pixel LED headlights. To save weight, the bonnet is made from carbon fibre before being painted to match the body colour and integrated air vents further add to the sporty image and allow for additional cooling. The thumping 5-litre V8 needs a bit of room to breath, as it produces an elephantine 423kW.

The SVR image is carried over to the passenger compartment, where the performance-minded seats now have SVR logos embossed into the wings, similar styling is applied to the steering wheel. To squeeze every kW of power from the engine, the SVR exhales through an active exhaust system that crescendos into quad-tailpipes.

Range Rover colours the brake callipers in red or black for the SVR and the handling is honed thanks to sports suspension.

The SVR is yours for $254,005.30 driveaway.

There are a gamut of paint colours available for the Range Rover Sport. The two free colours are Narvik Black and Fuji White, both solid colours. Metallic paints cost $2,200, apart from Estoril blue for the SVR, which is a $4,420 extra. The two premium metallic paints, Carpathian Grey and Silicon Silver cost $4,420 and there are some special effects paints in the brochure that retail for up to $20,550.

The above prices are for NSW postcode 2000 and include Range Rover's list price, estimated dealer delivery charges, rego and CTP.

Overview

With so many engine options and customisation options, there's a Range Rover Sport for everyone or anyone who's willing to splurge at least $105k. Journalists found the Sport to be a high-end 4x4, with an extremely comfortable ride, pleasing handling, off-road aptitude and a hybrid engine option.

Engine and performance

On mass-market cars, often you'll only have the choice of one, two and very rarely, a third engine. In the Range Rover line-up, there are four different engines, in various states of tune. And a hybrid model.

2.0 i4 221kW Petrol

This Ingenium-branded engine is a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine with 221kW of power. Yes, you read that correctly. The Ingenium line was created to make a modern, lightweight and efficient engine and thanks to twin-turbochargers, it creates a solid 400Nm.

You'll find the same powerplant deployed in Range Rover sister companies' vehicles like the Jaguar F-Type, E-Pace and Land Rover Discovery.

3.0 V6 183kW diesel

This engine sounds more like the Range Rover Sport line-up you may be familiar with. Range Rover claims it's good for 183kW and 600Nm of torque. This engine is available on SE models only.

3.0 V6 225kW diesel

A less restricted version of the above power source, Range Rover states you'll have 225kW at your disposal and a meaty 700Nm of torque. This engine can be had with SE, HSE, HSE Dynamic and Autobiography Dynamic grades.

4.4 V8 250kW diesel

Those desiring a diesel with a little more spirit can choose the 4.4-litre V8 diesel. Available on HSE and HSE Dynamic Range Rovers, you'll have 250kW and 740Nm at your beck and call.

5.0 V8 386kW petrol

If you're after something with even more power and of course, that imposing V8 thunder, Range Rover produces a 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine that summons 386kW and 625Nm. You can spec this engine on the HSE Dynamic and Autobiography Dynamic edition RRS.

5.0 V8 423kW petrol

Range Rover reserves this powerhouse for the full-bore SVR edition. The engine is good for 423kW and 700Nm of torque.

2.0 i4 297kW Petrol hybrid

The eco-friendly Range Rover Sport. The model has a 2.0-litre i4 engine that produces 297kW and 640Nm. It also boasts an EV-only-mode 48km of range. You can order the PHEV in SE and HSE grades.

Car reviewers' impressions of the Range Rover Sport engine and gearbox combo

From the reviews we analysed, one journo had the 2.0 Ingenium line four-pot petrol engine while another had the TDV6 in an SE press car. The other two reviewed models with discontinued engines, so we'll discount their findings regarding engines here.

It seems the motoring press looked at the Ingenium petrol engine suspiciously. With 2.0-litre displacement and only four-cylinders, it sounds like something you'd get in a sedan. However, the testers discovered that with two turbochargers, maximum power is extracted from the engine. They likened the performance to a 4.0-litre V8. They also said it was diesel-like, meaning it has a willingness to pull even at low revs. The writer also mentioned the ZF-sourced automatic was a great pairing, helping to translate the engine's kinetic energy to the road.

The other engine on test was a 3.0 TDV6. This is a popular engine for JLR and the tester described it as powerful and surging. Off the mark, they said it was immediate and rapid. It's apparently a very buttery engine that produces little noise. They also repeated other journos' thoughts, the eight-speed automatic box works well with instant shifts and a great top gear for cruising at low revs.

We spoke with someone who's spent time with every Range Rover Sport engine, driving long distances. They favoured the 3.0-litre V6 diesel, saying it was the pick of the crop and pretty much bulletproof. It was also the most popular option for customers where they work. The 4.4-litre diesel is equally as refined, but obviously less economical.

They've also sampled the hybrid model and witnessed the technology reduce fuel economy to near brochure claims.

Fuel Efficiency

Looking at the sizeable Range Rover Sport, you'd think it could never be a fuel-efficient vehicle. After all, it's a large SUV with a sporting twist and substantial engines. But thanks to JLR's Ingenium line engines and the hybrid P400e model, frugal numbers are achievable.

Here are the fuel economy figures for each engine, according to the Green Vehicle Guide, unless otherwise stated.

2.0 i4 221kW Petrol

This engine is not present on the Green Vehicle Guide website. Range Rover officially only provides combined fuel economy for the engine as 9.4L/100km.

3.0 V6 183kW & 225kW diesel

The fuel use for the 3.0 V6 diesel with 183kW and the more powerful 225kW unit is:

  • Combined: 7.8L/100km
  • Urban: 8.8L/100km
  • Extra: 7.1L/100km

4.4 V8 250kW diesel

For this large 4.4-litre diesel V8, the Green Vehicle Guide shows the fuel economy as follows:

  • Combined: 9.4L/100km
  • Urban: 11.7:/100km
  • Extra: 8.1L/100km

5.0 V8

No up-to-date information is held on the Green Vehicle Guide database for this HSE Dynamic, Autobiography and SVR engine option. Range Rover gives the fuel usage as:

HSE Dynamic and Autobiography models (386kW), combined 12.8L/100km.
SVR with 423kW, also 12.8L/100km combined.

2.0 i4 297kW petrol hybrid

If fuel economy (or your environmental impact) is a concern, the petrol hybrid Range Rover has a combined fuel use of 2.8L/100km.

Manufacturers use a heavily regulated testing procedure to calculate fuel usage figures. As a result of the controlled testing conditions, the figure doesn't really account for the many variables of real-world driving on public roads. Things like the weather, the condition of the vehicle, the payload you're carrying and the local terrain can impact your fuel economy. Consequently, you should use the brochure figures only as a way to compare different models and car brands.

How did the motoring media find the Range Rover on fuel then? Many of the press achieved close to brochure figures. One had a 2.0-litre Si4 Range Rover and saw 10.3L/100km combined against the ADR result of 9.2L/100km. Another outlet had the 3.0-litre V6 and recorded 8.8L/100km (including off-road driving) vs 6.9L/100km from the brochure.

Obviously, if fuel bills are a concern, the Range Rover Sport is probably not a car for you. However, if you did want to limit the amount you spend at the servo, then the P400e RRS is the one to go for. In this model, an electric motor supplements the 2.0-litre petrol, making low fuel use digits (especially within the range of the onboard battery) a common occurrence.

Handling

A Range Rover Sport is a large SUV designed to balance on-road handling, performance and off-road compatible geometry. That's a tricky balancing act. From the comments of reviewers, it seems Range Rover has pulled off this feat.

Journalists said the steering was sporty and nimble, the shock absorbers and dampers are firm, making it ride well in corners even when pushed beyond what is sensible. In all honesty, the majority of Range Rover Sports will spend their whole lives in towns and cities. And that's where automotive experts found it really came into its own, with a magic carpet-like ride.

The neatest trick of the Sport though is how it manages to handle so adeptly on asphalt while still retaining some pretty serious off-road acuity. Many of the motoring media took the Sport away from the road network and discovered the onboard tech makes this thing very capable. If you have the off-road pack, you get height-adjustable air suspension and a low-range transfer box, plus a submarine-like wading depth of 850mm! Realistically, few owners will take their Range Rover Sport where the journalists did, but it's nice to know it can do that when needed. It's also reassuring to learn the car is massively over-engineered for driving on a gravel track or sandy road.

Interior and features

The Range Rover Sport interior was well received by car reviewers. They perceived the Sport's interior to be very high tech, thanks to the use of 2 10" touchscreens. When turned off, these screens give the cabin a very sophisticated appearance. One even said it was the best looking passenger compartment on the market. A few mentioned gripes with the physical positioning of these screens requiring the driver to look away from the road fully to operate them, a problem not helped by a minimal number of physical buttons.

Journalists talked about how comfortable the Sport was, praising the spacious interior which offers good visibility and personal space.

Because of the sheer number of customisation options and packages, we'll mention only the key stand-out points of the interior.

All models have Terrain Response (or Terrain Response 2 as part of the off-road pack but standard on higher-end models), electronic air suspension, a body-coloured roof, acoustic windscreen glass, heated door mirrors, electrical tow preparation, rear fog lights, headlight washers, auto headlights, front fog lights, LED lights with DRLs, at least a 19" set of alloy wheels plus a full-size spare (not on 7-seater models), 8-way adjusting front seats, aluminium interior trim pieces, leather steering wheel, Morzine headlining, ambient interior lighting, 2-zone climate control, an enhanced sound system, sat-nav, an app that shows the status of your Range Rover (the app lets you check fuel levels, locate your car, check it's locked, alert you to low fluid levels, calculate business miles from journey logs and transmit your location/diagnostics data to Land Rover Assistance, it'll even automatically call emergency numbers if you have an accident).

You can also expect Bluetooth Connectivity, All-Terrain Information, power sockets and an interactive driver display. A rear camera and parking aids help you move the large vehicle around, and in motion, emergency braking, speed limited cruise control and lane departure warnings help keep you in check.

Obviously, as you progress through each model, the Range Rover Sport becomes evermore luxurious. But the brochure is incredibly complicated and different functions and options require certain packages, it can get very confusing quickly. It's a bit like playing an automotive specification game of KerPlunk.

Verdict

The Range Rover Sport is a prestige model, with many luxuries, for a considerable price. It's a comfortable, smooth riding 4x4 that will work very well off-road (though 99.9% will probably never stray from the tarmac). Journalists found the Range Rover Sport to be an excellent alternative to rivals from Germany. It's also very customisable, with a multitude of engines, interior options and packages. Additionally, it's great to see a hybrid option, but there are some questions about the reliability of the heavily software-reliant SUVs.
