For The Range Rover Sport is a quiet cruiser with a classy cabin and a comfortable ride. It’s also more practical than most premium SUVs.
Against It’s expensive to buy and the way it drives doesn’t live up to the ‘Sport’ tag.
Some rivals are faster and more fun to drive, but none is as comfortable or refined as the Range Rover Sport.

At the moment there are just two engines to choose from, and the SDV6 diesel makes far more sense than the V8 petrol. However, deciding which Range Rover Sport to buy will get far harder next January when the cheaper TDV6 diesel arrives.
The SDV6 is available with three trims, but we see no reason to go beyond the cheapest of these – HSE. It gives you everything from a leather interior and heated rear seats to sat-nav and front and rear parking sensors.
Few owners will ever do any proper off-roading in the Sport. However, being a Range Rover, it's designed to do precisely that. Every model comes with Land Rover’s clever Terrain Response system, while a low-ratio gearbox is available as an option.
The Range Rover Sport 3.0 SDV6 HSE combines good performance with competitive running costs and generous standard kit, making it the pick of the range.
