For The Range Rover Sport is comfortable, spacious, desirable and extremely good on- and off-road
Against It suffers from a bit of a 'footballers' car' image, and doesn't have the class of the Range Rover. It's not as smooth riding, either.
The Range Rover Sport has awesome presence, and it's almost as spacious as the Range Rover. It's quicker and less anti-social as fuel consumption and emissions are improving.

The Range Rover Sport is Land Rover's answer to driver-focused 4x4s from the likes of BMW and Porsche. The supercharged model best lives up to the 'Sport' name, with sledgehammer power allowing two tonnes of 4x4 to accelerate at a barely credible rate.
That's fine for the money-no-object darlings of football's Premier League who are among the Sport's leading customers. For the rest of us, the entry-level 3.0-litre diesel brings reasonable running costs (in relative terms) without making you feel you've sacrificed all semblance of performance. Every model performs well on- and off-road, as well as having a trim befitting of the car.
Beware of niggling problems, though. While much improved, Land Rover's old reliability issues haven't disappeared completely. One more thing – make sure you test drive a standard Range Rover as well as the Sport. You may prefer its more genteel nature.

This is our favourite version as it has an engine up to the task of hauling two tonnes of luxury 4x4 around. Good on-road; brilliant off-road.
