Some rivals are faster and more fun to drive, but few are as comfortable or refined as the Range Rover Sport. We’d advise looking at a D300 diesel unless the P400e works for your lifestyle or bank balance. Stick to the lower trim levels, too, as costs soon shoot up.
The trimSee full equipment
As you’d expect given the name, this trim comes with uprated underpinnings to make the Range Rover Sport handle better on the road and be even more capable off it. In addition, 21in wheels are fitted, as are sporty touches such as steel pedals and gloss black exterior trim. Standard HSE trim is more comfortable and cheaper, though, so that’s what we recommend.

The D300 is our favourite of the Range Rover Sport’s engines. It’s a 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel that’s impressively smooth and has plenty of performance from low down in the rev range. Flat out it’ll crack 0-62mph in 7.3sec while you should get over 30mpg without too much difficulty.
