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 The low-speed ride is a touch firm; high list prices and poor real-world economy

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

You can have an efficient 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine with a manual gearbox. However, it’s not that quick and it isn’t available with seven seats or four-wheel drive, so we’d opt for the higher-power 187bhp version instead. Manual versions of this are cheaper to buy but the engine is best suited to the excellent nine-speed auto ’box; it is equally efficient, quicker, and more relaxing to drive. SE Tech trim has everything you need, including sat-nav, climate control, parking sensors all round and part-leather seats. This makes it hard to justify the big price jump to HSE, unless you really want its full-leather interior and panoramic sunroof. Oddly, if you add the entertainment pack (which brings a dual-view screen up front, a TV function and an upgraded sound system, and is available on HSE trim and up) you get entirely different software that makes the system much slower and not as easy to use as the standard, lower-spec one.
